How far in advance should I order my gown?
Most of Champagne & Glitter’s gowns are made to order (unless “In stock” is specified next to a size) and take about 12-15 weeks for delivery. Please place your order as far as in advance of your wedding date as possible. By doing so, you will allow ample time for production and shipping. It also affords you a comfortable time frame to accommodate any alterations if necessary.
What is the difference between a special order and an in-stock gown?
Special order gowns are made according to each order we receive from a customer and submit to the designer. We do not keep special order gowns in stock. Special order gowns normally take 12 -15 weeks for delivery from the designer. Immediate Delivery gowns ship in 7 business days or less. We have these gowns in-stock in various sizes and colors on a first-come, first-serve basis.
What if alterations are required?
Alterations can be performed on special order gowns, based on your specific measurements, for an additional $125 at the time of purchase. If length needs to be added, or cut, the charge is $20 (if less than 6" adjustment) or 20% of the cost of dress (if the adjustment more than 6").
We can also change the zipper to corset or corset to zipper, the charge is 20% of the dress cost.
Other modifications such as removing/adding straps, caps, sheer tops, long sleeves are possible but will have to be quoted individually.

How will I know that the dress will fit properly?
Please see Size Chart on our site. It is important that you follow the chart to decide your size. Keep in mind that the measurements are taken to determine the closest size to be ordered and that the garment will not be custom-made to the exact measurements. Almost every gown will need some type of adjustment. Prior to selecting your size to order, we suggest reviewing the information provided in How to Measure.
