We’ve all been spending a lot more time on social media (Pinterest and Instagram anyone?). If you are in the process of planning your wedding, chances are you have come across your dream wedding dress online, from the comfort of your couch. Connecting the dots between finding your wedding gown online, all the way through to having your gown in hand, however, is not always as straight forward, depending on our location. The process of finding a stockist near you that have your desired piece on the rail, or simply traveling to a stockist can become somewhat mysterious in these times, but buying your gown online does not have to be!
Here at Bo & Luca, we have had so many wonderful experiences working with our online brides to create their dream gowns.
Here is our step-by-step on how to purchase your wedding dress online:
STEP 1 //
You can browse our collection of beautifully handcrafted gowns and bridal accessories ONLINE. Our online listings feature in-depth images, covering the various angles of each gown. With close-ups of beading and lacework, it is easy to get a real feel for the details of your wedding dress. Our brides can also view live videos of some of our Temple x Bo & Luca pieces HERE.
These videos are perfect for seeing how our gowns move on the body. Our online store is a one-stop-shop for your entire wedding look, featuring ethereal, hand-beaded VEILS, EARRINGS, and other fine bridal accompaniments.
STEP 2 //
Assistance from one of our Bo & Luca stylists are always a click away. Reach out via our online chat platform – if a stylist is not available at any given time, your message will go right to their inbox and you can expect a response shortly after. No question is too big or too small for our team! Our Bo & Luca stylists are there to assist you with sizing, or to simply put your mind at ease with regards to accessorizing your wedding day look.
STEP 3 //
You’ve found ‘the one’ and you are ready to commit to your chosen wedding gown. Shopping your gown online is as easy as checking out! Our online portal is set up with multiple, safe, and easy payment options. As soon as your online payment has gone through, you will receive an email confirming your order. Our production manager will be in touch to finalize any further details with regards to your online order, such as delivery and wedding dates, as well as final measurements.
STEP 4 //
Each of our gowns are handcrafted, with some pieces being entirely hand beaded and others requiring hours of careful hand-applique. Our luxurious fabrics are dyed in loose-leaf white tea to give them their signature off-white hue. It is due to this hands-on approach and attention to detail that we suggest a 3-6 month lead time for our team of artisans to create your beautiful gown.
This being said, we do allow space for rush orders and we are always happy to listen to our bride’s requirements and date restrictions. If you are in need of an urgent order, please do reach out to our team at [email protected] to discuss the best way forward with regards to your time-sensitive piece.
STEP 5 //
Once your gown nears completion, our team will notify you and your gown will be carefully packaged for it’s traveling to you. We ship all of our items with DHL Express, a company we know and trust to deliver your special parcel to your preferred delivery address.
Please do take note that, as with all international imports, there might be customs and duties payable on your shipment depending on where you are located. We ask all of our online brides to check what their specific country’s customs requirements are before ordering their gowns online.
Our Temple x Bo & Luca collections are designed with ease of alterations in mind. This means any final alterations, for instance, taking up the hem of your gown or nipping in the waist will be easy changes to have made by a qualified seamstress.
It has never been as easy to shop for your wedding dress online. We absolutely love hearing from all of our brides and we are here for any and all questions you might have with regards to your big day! We understand that purchasing your gown online can be daunting, but we are committed to making this one of your favourite steps in your wedding planning journey!
