Loved a dress?
Let us know! We will get your measurements and your order is on its way.
Once you order your dresses, we will be in contact with a delivery day! We ship out every Tuesday and Friday, so depending on our current queue, you will receive your shipment 8-15 days after placing your order. After confirming your delivery and arrival day, we will get your package boxed up, sent out, and on its way! You will then have three days from your sample arrival date to *safely* prance around your living room before you send them back (with a prepaid label, of course).
Let us know! We will credit $50, $100, or $150 (depending on how many dresses you ordered) towards purchasing your made-in sunny California dream dress
Some tidbits and tips:
- The most common confusion in the Home Try-On process is sizing–we get it! Just like in our studio, the dress(es) you receive will be sample sizes. While we ask for size requests from you, we can’t guarantee they will be available. In those cases, we will always send 1-2 sizes larger than you requested, and clips will be there to make it fit as perfectly.
- To make your experience as close to the studio as possible, you can set up a virtual appointment before, during, or after your dress try-on. We will help you clip, measure, and ensure you and your gals pop the champagne when you say “YES!”
- A prepaid return label, measuring tape, dress clips, and an “I Said Yes” sign will be included in your box! We just ask that you return it all exactly as it came.

COMMON HOME TRY-ON QUESTIONS
Your loan-me service is genius, can you tell me more?
We are happy that this service is popular with our clients. You can find more info by visiting the loan-me page.
Can the dresses be delivered on an exact date?
While we would LOVE to make this happen for you, it is out of our control when using standard shipping. This is, however, possible if you opt for expedited shipping. Expedited shipping is usually 2nd day or overnight. If you would like to upgrade your shipping, we will use your address to get shipping quotes. Contact us and let us know your intent to upgrade.
Is a signature required upon delivery for the loan me package?
Will the loan fee be credited towards my purchase?
Domestic clients (USA) who originally loaned one dress will receive a $50 refund after their wedding dress purchase. If you originally loaned two dresses, you receive a $100 refund after your purchase. If you loaned three dresses, $150 is refunded after your purchase. Please note, refunds are only applied when the purchase is made within 30 days from when the client receives the sample. If you loaned four dresses, $150 is refunded. Dreamers & Lovers issue a credit/refund for up to three dresses. Loan credits are only given if a purchase is made. If you do not end up purchasing one of the dresses, no refunds are given.
International clients (AUS, CA, NZ, UK) also receive the same credit as listed above for domestic clients, up to $150.
In addition to the $50 US loan fee, there is an additional charge. What is that charge?
The amount in question is a temporary hold. The amount in question is a temporary hold. If trying 1 dress, there is a $1000 hold. If trying 2 dresses, there is a $1500 hold. If trying 3 dresses, there is a $2000 hold. If trying 4 dresses, there is a $2500 hold. We remove the amount held once we receive the dresses back in the original condition sent. If you are trying one sample, you will see a hold of $1,000 on your credit card. This temporary hold will be removed once Dreamers & Lovers receive the dresses back in their original condition.
I don't know my measurements, why do you need that for a sample gown?
Wedding dress sizing tends to be different from street size. Different wedding brands have different sizing, so having your measurements allow us to get you the best possible size to try. Need help with measurements? Let us know. We are happy to hop on a quick Facetime/Zoom call with you. We’ll help with getting the right measurements.
What are your shipping terms?
Domestic packages are sent via USPS Priority Mail, with signature required. Once shipped, your sample dress order usually arrives to you within 6-7 days.
International packages are sent via FEDEX, with signature required. Once shipped your sample dress usually arrives within 3-6 days.
I am located in Australia and just purchased the loan-me option, but I was told that based on my zip-code there is an additional $60?
I ordered the dress with ivory liner, but a dress with nude liner was sent to me?
I requested a size 4, but a size 8 was sent, can you send another?
I would like to schedule that FEDEX/UPS hold the package for a couple days, or redirect/delay the package?
This is not allowed. Clients should not schedule any holds/redirects/delay with the shipping carrier.For each day the package has been held/delayed/redirected, this accrues as a daily late rate of $50 per day. On the fifth day, if the dress is not returned, the full amount of the dress is charged.
What happens if I keep the dress more than 48 hours?
What if I get makeup/soil spots on the dress, or caused damages to the dress?
After the 48 hour try-on period, how do I send the dress back to the Dreamers & Lovers studio?
International clients will have the package picked up from the original delivery address. A Dreamers & Lovers associate will contact you by email with pickup date and time.
I live in the U.S, but I am being charged $125 per dress at checkout?
I received the dress, and while it is beautiful it is not for me, what happens next?
