Wedding dress shopping is a stressful and time-consuming endeavor that sometimes requires waiting for days or weeks for an available appointment at a high-end bridal salon only to have to deal with a pushy shop assistant insisting you buy a dress worth a small wedding itself. Now, one website is trying to change that and we couldn't be more excited about it.
Introducing Floravere.com—the first luxury bridal brand delivering sample wedding gowns directly to your doorstep.
“A wedding dress is one of the most special purchases a woman will make, yet the process of shopping for one hasn’t been updated to reflect the needs of modern brides," Molly Kang, Floravere's founder, said in a statement. "While shopping for my dress, I couldn't help but ask myself, ‘Why can't I buy a luxury wedding dress the way I buy other clothes: online, directly from the makers and without the need to hunt down styles in person or make an appointment weeks in advance?'" Preach, Molly.
So here's how it works: you can browse its collection online, select up to three styles to try on at home, and then receive your custom made-to-order gown within three to four months. And you're not going to spend a penny over $4,000 for any of the dresses.
Floravere's team includes former artisans from the ateliers of Monique Lhuillier, Dior, Zac Posen, and Reem Acra, so you know your gown is in good hands. The brand’s inaugural collection features a variety of designs and silhouettes that every modern bride will love.
And because it offers a variety of customizations tailored to each style including train length, sleeve length, waistlines, and monogramming, you can truly create a one-of-a-kind dress to wear down the aisle.
Now all you need to do is invite over all of your BFFs, pop a bottle of champagne, and throw a try-on party.
