FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
How can I try on a Lauren Elaine Bridal gown?
How do I take advantage of your complimentary 'measurement' services?
Complimentary measurement service* is provided prior to shipping, on all Lauren Elaine Bridal orders, to minimize the need for future alterations and help ensure a great fit.
To collect your measurements, our Custom Measurement Guides are provided by a customer service sales representative via email upon purchase.
*Measurement service denotes that a gown is made to specific measurements. While this ensures the best fit possible upon arrival by bringing in our existing patterns as closely to your provided measurements, and usually minimizes or eliminates the need for alterations - additional alterations may be necessary. Additional alterations are a bride's responsibility.
Why might I need alterations if I used the complimentary measurement service?
While usually our gowns arrive fitting great, sometimes additional alterations are necessary. In most cases, additional alterations are limited to minor areas like strap adjustment, hemming, etc. and are usually necessary for the following reasons: (1.) Your measurements may have changed over the course of the production period. (2.) Personal preference. Especially with form fitting silhouettes (ie: mermaids, fit-to-flares, trumpets), every bride has their own unique idea of a perfect fit as it pertains to their individual shape. While our measurement service helps accommodate a closer fit than a standard size, an additional alteration may be necessary to attain this unique vision.
What is the production timeframe on Lauren Elaine gowns?
Unless a rush order is requested (we can accommodate almost any deadline with a rush order upgrade, please contact salesrep@Lauren-Elaine.com!), all Bridal Collection orders are completed within an estimated 6 months of purchase. If your wedding is in less than 6 months, please contact us to see if a rush order will be necessary.
Rush fees vary depending on gown style, time of year, and deadline needed. Please contact us directly to discuss options. Salesrep@Lauren-Elaine.com
What happens after I place an order for my gown?
Upon purchase, your gown immediately enters production and your gown's materials and fabrications are sourced. Within 48hrs of purchase, you'll receive our Custom Measurement guide to collect your custom measurements for our Made-to-Measure service.
After production is completed, your gown is thoroughly inspected, steamed, and delivered to our shipping department- where it is carefully packaged. You will receive an email notification prior to shipment, to alert you of your gown's completion. Additionally, you will receive an email confirmation upon shipment with full tracking details and shipping provider information.

Do you send swatches of fabric?
Yes! We are happy to offer swatches of our laces complimentary for color selection, and gown preference-- upon placement of a deposit payment.
