Frequently Asked Questions

Find answers to our most asked questions.


Purchasing a Dress - Retailer Store Locations

You can purchase a dress from one of our thousands of retailers across the US, Canada, UK and Australia. To find an authorized retailer near you, or one of your bridesmaids, please use our Store Finder.

Size Charts & Size Ranges

All of our dresses are available in sizes 00-30W, and 00-30W extra length (for those 5'7" and taller). We truly do hope to accommodate all shapes and sizes. If you require a larger size, please inquire with your retailer about ordering extra matching fabric to alter a dress for you.

You may view our dress size chart online, but keep in mind that sizing for wedding gowns and bridesmaids' dresses are not like street clothes. It is customary, for most, to have minor alterations to get a perfect fit. Please consult with a professional to ensure you order the correct size for you. If you are unsure about which size to order, consider ordering your dress from a Dessy Authorized Retailer.

Fabric Swatches

Swatches for all current Dessy Group bridesmaid fabrics are available directly to you through our Online Swatch Store. If you need help creating your wedding color palette, take a look at our collection of Pantone Wedding™ color tools to assist you in choosing your colors and coordinating them with your wedding party and vendors.

Dress Pricing

All questions regarding retail pricing, and delivery should be directed to one of our authorized retailers. Contact an authorized retailer near you.

Delivery & Rush Delivery

Special Order Dresses: Delivery dates for special order dresses ordered through an authorized retailer or Dessy.com, are approximately 8-9 weeks from confirmed order date.

In-stock Dresses & Accessories: In-stock Bridesmaid Dress, Twist Dress and Wedding Dress orders ship 7-10 days from date of order. Most accessories ship within 1-3 days from the date of order. Learn more about Special Order vs. In-stock Dresses.

Rush Delivery: We do offer 'RUSH' cuts for special order dresses. We are fairly flexible and hope to accommodate as many orders as possible. Please have your retailer contact us regarding RUSH delivery dates and surcharges. To rush an accessory order, please contact us.

Dye-Lot Variation & How to Order Dresses for Maids in Different Locations

It is ideal to have your entire bridal party place their dress orders together at one authorized full-service bridal shop. We recommend this because the store will submit the entire order together, thus the dresses will be cut from the same bolt of cloth. Most retailers will ask you to collect all of your bridesmaid's measurements and submit them with your final order. The retailer will translate those measurements to sizes using our size-chart and place the entire order with us.

If it is absolutely impossible to get all your girls to coordinate with one store, they may go to authorized retailers in their own area. Please make sure that it is an authorized Dessy, After Six, Alfred Sung, Lela Rose or Social Bridesmaids retailer. Find an Authorized Dessy Group Retailer near you.

If your bridesmaids are choosing different style dresses in the same color, keep in mind dye-lot variations can occur. The difference will not be drastic, but there may be slight shading difference between styles.

Maternity Dresses, Junior Bridesmaids & Flower Girls

We do offer Maternity bridesmaid styles. Or, you may also choose to order any one of our styles a few sizes larger than their normal dress size and order extra fabric for alterations. The majority of our stores have extensive knowledge when it comes to accommodating a mommy-to-be.

We also offer Junior Bridesmaid dresses and Flower Girls dresses. And we sell matching fabrics and trims so that you may have an appropriate dress made. You can order fabric online or contact your retailer.

Extra Fabric

We sell our fabrics, zippers, and trims by the yard. You can order fabric online or contact your retailer about prices and availability.

Special Order Dresses vs. In-Stock Dresses

Special order dresses are dresses that are ordered through a Dessy retailer or Dessy.com that are cut to order, including most bridesmaid dresses, junior bridesmaid dresses and flower girl dresses. Special order dresses are delivered approximately 8-9 weeks from the confirmed order date, and all sales are final.

In-stock dresses are select bridesmaid dress, twist dress and wedding dress styles that are stocked by The Dessy Group for immediate delivery. In-stock dresses ship immediately, and are available through authorized Dessy retailers and Dessy.com. In-stock dresses are 100% returnable. See below for details on returns.
