When will I receive my gown? 

All gowns take 12-16 weeks to craft until they are shipped. If you need a rush order, there is an additional $400 charge. Please message us with your requested time frame so that we may arrange it accordingly. Please be aware we work on a first come first serve schedule and not all rush orders will be possible. 


While South of West does contract custom gowns, we do not do dress alterations. Please see your local wedding dress alterer or seamstress for this service. 

Do you accept refunds or exchanges? 

Due to the specialization of our clothing, all garments are made to order therefor are not available for a refund or exchange. We understand placing a wedding gown order is a big commitment and we want to you be 100% happy with your purchase. If you have any additional questions or would like additional photos and details about a gown, please do not hesitate to reach out. We're here to help in all stages of your dress buying process. 

Can I make payment installments? 

We understand weddings are expensive, and the planning process can be stressful. Breaking up the dress cost can be a huge help. For both off the rack and custom gowns, a 50% non-refundable deposit is available, and the remaining balance may be payed upon delivery no later than 18 weeks. Purchases will not ship until the remaining balance is payed. If you would like to initiate this, please send an email to southofwestbridal@gmail.com prior to buying your dress and we will send you a special Purchase Order.

Where can I get my dress cleaned?

We recommend going to your local dry cleaners and requesting any special treatments they have for wedding dresses. Please do not attempt to wash any South of West gowns at home.
