Try at Home Program in Los Angeles

The try at home program offers our online brides the chance to try on your preowned wedding gown on before saying yes! Each product page ensures that you are getting the necessary photos, details and measurements for each gown. However, we recognize that this is simply not enough to buy your once in a lifetime gown sight unseen. Three days with your second hand wedding dress takes all the guesswork of buying a secondhand wedding dress.

During your time with the gown, you will try the gown on for sizing and style. You can even book a consultation with your local bridal tailor to ensure alterations can be done and how much it will cost. You can also use this time to inspect any flaws that are noted to ensure you are okay with them.

Using the try at home option eliminates the risk associated with typically buying a used wedding dress online. Instead, we offer you a unique customer service experience that ensures you purchase a gown that will actually work for your big day!

Share information about your brand with your customers. Describe a product, make announcements, or welcome customers to your store.

Try at Home - Tips and Tricks

1. Make-Up & Hair

We do ask that you wear little to no makeup when trying on the gown. Instead, opt for finished hair and a little mascara, it goes a VERY long way when getting the full look.

2. Alterations

As long as the gown is not too short, alterations are to be expected and can work magic! Remember, you can take in a gown about 2 sizes and let out about 1 size. *If you are unsure about the measurements, we have had brides make appointments with their local tailor to get a second opinion.

3. Shape wear/Undergarments

It's rare that you can wear a bra with your wedding gown, so pasties or bra-less will give you an idea before you put cups in during alterations. While you might not need it, shape wear could be good to have close by, but try without first. 

4. Environment

Good lighting is everything. Trying the gown on by a window during the day will give you a better idea of what you gown will look like outdoors in natural lighting. Please refrain from having animals near the gown. Their thin hair can catch in just about any material.  

5. Jewelry/Accessories

Please be mindful to not wear prongs jewelry when trying on gowns. Delicate fabrics can often get caught and cause holes and pulls in the dresses.

6. Bustle

Your gown may have been packed with the bustle in place. If so, feel free to undo them so you can see the train in its full effect. 


1. How long can i keep the dresses?

Because we only have one of each gown, we do limit your time to three days including delivery date. Ex: If your gown delivers on Monday, you will have Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. If you need to return the items, it will needs to be postmarked by end of day on Wednesday.

2. Is there a maximum number of gowns I can try on?

Yes. Due to the rising popularity of our unique program, we ask that you try on one gown at a time. If you are deciding between 2 or more, please schedule a virtual appointment and we can help you narrow down your choice.

3. How can I guarantee the fit of the gown I am ordering?

Because of the nature of bridal sizing, we have done our best to be as explicit as possible of what size the gown currently fits like. Please be sure to take a look at each products measurements and compare it to your own. It is okay if a gown is a bit larger on you as alterations are to be expected. If you are unsure about measurements, please use our chat box feature to speak to a stylist.

If you have further questions, please schedule a virtual appointment and we can guide you on if the gown will work before completing your try at home purchase.

4. What if I have questions about the gown while in my care?

During your time with the gown, we are available via text, email, or phone call. Questions you have might be about the fit of the gown, the condition, what accessories to wear. We are your virtual bridal stylists, here to help.

5. What happens if I take longer than 3 days?

Please let us know if you need a bit more time to make your decision. If we do not hear back by day three of your time with the gown, a 1% of the selling price late charge will be assessed until we hear back.

6. I love the gown! How can I purchase the gown?

Congratulations on saying yes to the dress! You will send us an email or text saying that you'd like to purchase your gown. We will send you an invoice via email to make it official. The gown will be reserved for you until 11:59PM PT that day.

7. How do I go about returning my gown?

Should you decide to return the wedding dress, we will require a request via email or text. Upon receipt of your request, we will email you a prepaid label to attach to the same box you received your gown in.
