How do I choose a dress size?
To make sure you get the perfect fit we strongly suggest you order the dress in your measurements. This will insure that the dress is made specifically for your body shape. If you order a stock size there is a size chart on every dress page that will show you what the stock sizes are and the measurements for that size. If you do choose a stock size we cannot guarantee the right fit for you. We are not responsible if the dress does not fit you properly if you do not send us your measurements. Wedding gowns run smaller than normal clothing sizes. If you wear a 12 in normal clothing, you would most likely wear a 14 in a bridal gown.
How can I take my own measurements?
Under the Dress Information page which is located on the home page there will be a How to Measure and size guide that tells you step by step how to measure and what areas you need to measure. If you are not able to do it yourself you can have either a family or friend help you or some alteration places can do the measurements for you.
If I choose a color other than ivory or white how do I know the dress will be the same color as the color chart?
This is a good question and one that others ask a lot. Colors on a computer can look different than the actual color of the fabric. We try to match the color as close as possible to the color of the dress you have chosen. The best way to make sure you get the color you want is to order a fabric swatch of the color you are looking at. This will insure you will see the color and the fabric that you are wanting.
Why does it take so long to get a dress shipped to me?
If you are ordering a dress that is for your specific measurements, then the dress is made specifically for you. It does not take as long to have a stock size dress shipped to you but again we strongly suggest reading the How Do I Choose a Dress Size question before doing that.
Can I get rush on my dress?
Absolutely. We offer rushes on any dress you would like to order. When ordering your dress as a rush you will be charged a $29.99 rush fee at checkout. This will insure that your dress is pushed ahead of the line and made according to the date you need it. Keep in mind that even on a rush we still need at a minimum of 22 days to make your dress. Anything less than 22 days we will not be able to complete on time.
What is considered a rush?
A rush order is considered any order that needs to be received sooner than the normal process time the dress can be shipped if a stock item or made and shipped if it is a customer measurement. We need a minimum of 22 days to send you the dress due to shipping and processing.
Where are the dresses made?
All of our dresses are made here in the United States.
Can I get my dress by a certain date?
You can absolutely get your dress by a certain date as long as it meets the time given either regular time or on a rush. We cannot do shipping less than 22 business (including Saturdays) days from the time of the order due to order processing and shipping times. When you are ordering your dress you will need to put a date of when you need the dress. If you need a dress in less than 30 days for a custom measurement, 22 days for a rush, If the rush box is not checked we will contact you to let you know that your order is a rush order and see if you want to proceed with the extra charge.

Where can I try on a dress before I order it?
Since we are an online store only we do not have a way for you to try on the dress. This is why we strongly suggest you order the dress with your own measurements and not the stock size. We are able to keep our prices low for our customers because we do not have the overhead a brick and mortar bridal shop has so we are able to pass the savings on to our customers.
Can I return the dress if I don't like it?
The Glass Slipper Bridal does accept returns on the dress in special occasions. If you don't like the size, color or quality of the dress you received, you may return it according to our Return & Exchange Policy. Please refer to Return & Exchange Policy for the detail attentions and steps to return your dress if needed.

What is the difference between buying from The Glass Slipper Bridal Online versus buying from a store or on eBay?
First and foremost, selection. The Glass Slipper has hundreds of different dress styles to choose from. Almost of our gown photos were taken by a local photographer in our distribution center. The gown you see in the photos is the gown you will receive. Other sites use magazine photos or photos that are not their own.
Then, of course, there’s convenience. You can shop in the comfort of your own home or office. You don’t even have to dress up (unless, of course, you’re at the office). You can shop for your dress in a robe and slippers with your hair in rollers, if you want, while drinking your favorite beverage. And let’s not forget your friends and family. People who you might want to look at your dress, or help you decide between two or three dresses. They can look at your choice(s) from their home or office, at their convenience.
Not only will your shopping experience with us be convenient, it will be worry free. We have bridal sales consultants available to help you find the perfect dress for the perfect price. You can contact them by email or contact them by phone. Either way, your questions will be answered in a friendly, knowledgeable manner.
Next, we offer peace of mind. We have been in the bridal business for over 8 years, Also, unlike traditional bridal shops and other online bridal companies, we welcome exchanges and returns so you can purchase your dream dress hassle-free.
Every purchase is backed by a Money Back Guarantee.
Finally, there’s price. At The Glass Slipper Bridal you get brand new, first quality dresses that are less expensive than bridal shops. We have the same dresses that are in local bridal shops. The reason that our prices are so low is because we do not have the overhead of a bridal shop. We are online only, that is the reason we have great prices.
A word about eBay. eBay is, perhaps, the largest marketplace in the world. And terrific savings can be had for many items. However, wedding dresses are not one of them. This has nothing to do with eBay, itself, but rather some unscrupulous sellers. .

We do not offer cancellation or refund once work has begun on your order. If you are cancelling before work has begun, then we will refund your payment in full via whichever payment method you used.
