Loulette Bride wedding dresses range in price from $300 to $1,800 for Sample Sale gowns, and $2,500 to $4,040 for Made to Order Gowns.
What is a Made to Order gown?
Brand spankin' new!
A Made to Order Gown is a gown that is made especially for you. Most of our styles are sold this way. Because our styles are made to order, we are often able to customize fabrics, sizes, and other design elements to make your gown perfect for you!
What is a Sample Sale gown and why are they so much less?
Our coolest styles!
A Sample Sale gown is a gown that is the original sample of that style. When one of our styles does not go into production, usually because they are too cool and fun for the masses, we sell the original sample. So, it is a one-of-a-kind gown, off the rack, and may have some very light scuffs from photoshoots. Because of this, all Sample Gowns are 50%-75% off the original price.
How long before my wedding should I buy my Loulette Bride gown?
Loulette Bride gowns take 8-10 weeks to make. For anything sooner, we do offer a $300 Rush Fee to get your gown to you in under 6 weeks, but it depends if we have all the materials readily available for your gown.
Sample Sale gowns are off-the-rack, so they are available immediately.
For gowns purchased from the Loulette Bride Studio, orders should be placed at least 6-10 months before your wedding. This allows plenty of time for making your gown, and a stress free time period for alterations.
If your gown was purchased at a Loulette Bride retailer, please check in with your retailer directly for timeline details!
How does Loulette Bride practice integrity, sustainability, and responsibility?
All day, every day!
Loulette Bride was founded on principles of integrity in our design and responsibility in our design and manufacturing process.
Having integrity means we only create original designs, and are incredibly proud of the product we create. We value quality over quantity, and make sure every gown we create is as perfect as it should be, on our bride's most special day.
We know that the garment industry is the second most polluting industry in the world. So, we take responsibility in our manufacturing process very seriously. We use natural and organic fabrics as much as possible, and recycle every single fabric scrap to FabScrap. We produce locally by making our garments in our Brooklyn studio and in the New York City Garment District, eliminating transport of goods. By making our gowns to order, we avoid overproduction, one of the biggest issues of the garment industry.
Where is a Loulette Bride gown made?
All Loulette Bride gowns are made in our hometown of NYC. Loulette Bride samples are made by the designer herself right in our Brooklyn studio. Loulette Bride production is made in our family-run sample room in the Garment District of New York City.
Do you do alterations?
For gowns purchased directly from Loulette Bride Studio, we offer $500 Flat Rate Alterations. This means we do all the alterations for you in our studio, and do whatever needs to be done, in as many appointments as it takes!
If I don't live in NYC, where can I find Loulette Bride?
All over the place!
Loulette Bride is available at a constantly growing number to retailers worldwide! Check out our list of Loulette Bride Retailers to find the closest one to you!
If we do not yet have a retailer in your area, please reach out to us, and we can work with a local bridal shop to send a specific style gown for you to try on.
We are also traveling around often in the form of Trunk Shows, so check in to see if we have a Trunk Show coming to your city.
Wait, WTF is a Trunk Show?
A Trunk Show is an event where a retailer has a whole bunch of Loulette Bride styles that they don't normally have in store. We send a collection of our best selling and new styles around to bridal stores, these stores hold on to the gowns for a weekend or two, and send them off on their way to their next retailer. So, check our list of Trunk Shows to see if Loulette Gowns are coming to a retailer near you!
Can you customize gowns, or customize an existing gown?
We love a creative project! While the most cost effective way to make a custom gown is to customize one of our existing style, feel free to bring us all your wildest ideas, and we will figure out a way to make your vision come to life. Book an appointment with us to come in and discuss your ideas with our designer, or ask a question first here.
