Common Questions regarding Bridesmaids

Return to All Topics

When you order a gown, Low’s staff will take your measurements over just your bra and underwear. This insures snug body measurements. (Measurements should never be taken over clothing.)

We will compare your measurements to the designer’s size chart. Each designer/line has its own size chart. Low’s will make a size recommendation, but the bride is allowed to order any size she chooses. If your measurements fall between sizes it is best to order the larger size as gowns can be taken up but may not have extra fabric to be let out.

Bridesmaid gowns are not cut to your measurements, so alterations are generally expected. Low’s does not offer in-house alterations, but we have a recommended list of alterations providers. Alterations are not included in the purchase price of a gown.

When the dresses arrive, you will be notified by your personal sales representative. Any incidental balances are to be paid at this time - payments can be made by cash, credit card, check, cashiers check, or money order. Cash is only acceptable if paying in person at the store. Please do not mail cash.

Payment may be made with either credit card, check, cashiers check, or money order. If mailing in a check, please send to:

The standard policy in the bridal industry is that there are no exchanges and all sales are final. Bridesmaids gowns are cut just for your order. The gowns are not kept in stock. When Low’s places your order for your bridesmaids gowns, the gowns are cut from the same dye lot of fabric and in the sizes you requested. Remember, Low’s staff is not allowed to choose your sizes.

Bridesmaid's gowns are not cut to personal measurements — you are ordering the closest size to your measurements. Follow the size chart provided on the backside of your bridesmaid's sheet. Every bridesmaid's gown designer has its own size chart, and the sizes can vary greatly. You could wear a 6 by one designer and a 10 by another designer.

Make sure your bridesmaids get measured properly. If in question, measure twice. Most common sizing issues:

  • Your bust measurement is not the same as your bra size.
  • The waist is measured at the smallest part of the torso, above the belly button - not where you wear your jeans.
  • Do not guess at your size. You can always have a gown taken up but you may not have enough fabric to let a gown out.

Bridesmaids gowns take 3 months to arrive after ordering. Rush is available from most designers for an additional charge.

Bridesmaids dresses are to be paid in full when ordering, this can be done with credit card or check.

Wedding gowns range from $1,000.00 up to $7,000.00.

Bridesmaid's gowns range from under $150.00 up to $350.00. Bridesmaid dress prices are subject to change without notice.

All sales are final. This final sales policy is consistent with the industry standard for bridal and special occasion apparel.
