How do I measure myself?

A guide to measuring

Hey Gorgeous! Congratulations on your engagement! Finding your correct size dress shouldn't be daunting! Here's a guide to learn how to take your most accurate measurements.


1. Use a soft measuring tape to measure yourself. Don't have one? Contact our stylist and receive a free measuring tape, catalogue and special discounts on bulk orders.  

2. Position yourself diagonally in front of a mirror, to be sure the tape is level.

3. Wrap the measuring tape from back to front so you can easily read the numbers.

4. Leave a finger's distance between your body and the measuring tape -pulling too tightly will skew measurements.

5. To get a sense of a style's length, measure from the very top of your shoulder,over the fullest part of your bust, to the length indicated on the item's product measurements(available on the product page under Fit Information).

6. To find the size you should order, refer to the item's fit information on the product page.

7. We recommend sizing up to your largest measurement - it's always easier to take something in than to let it out!

Contact a tailor in your area to have your measurements taken professionally.

What is the Bohemian Bride return policy?

Return Policy

Due to the specialization of made to order gowns all of our dresses are non-refundable/non-exchangeable. That's tricky, we get it, so if you have any questions please message us. We are happy to help. 

Do I pay for my gown at the time of ordering? Or do you accept partial payment?


No worries. We got you. In the case that any of our brides are unable to cover the full amount of the gown right away, we allow for paying 1/2 of the price up front (in a non-refundable deposit), while the other half will be due 30 days from the original payment. Please contact us with your inquiry and a will confirm your order and make payment arrangements directly with you via email or phone.
