FAQS | Sample Gowns

What if I change my mind?

All ex-display sample and sales stock purchases are final. Eternal Bridal does not accept exchanges or refunds. Customer asserts that they are satisfied with the condition of the item by paying for the item.

Do I need alteration?

Most brides will need some alterations and fittings to achieve the best fit. It is a separate service that is not included in the gown purchase. We recommend using a bridal seamstress for complicated alteration. As this is a sample gown that has been tried on, it might need a little TLC before it is perfect for your wedding day. There may be some minor wear and tear signs that the seamstress can mend. This is not included in the price of purchase.

Can I order extra fabric or material for alteration?

We understand that your seamstress might need some fabric, lace, buttons etc for touching up your gown and/or for alteration and fitting. Usually the seamstress will be able to source some matching / similar materials for you. If not, we might able to purchase these materials from the designer on your behalf. However this depends on the style and stock availability. It is not guaranteed. Please contact our customer service via shopadmin@eternalbirdal.com.au

How do I know the size of the gown suits me?

Please measure yourself and cross check with the size listed online. If you need some guidance, please send your measurements to our customer service via shopadmin@eternalbirdal.com.au

Below is little guideline of how to take your measurements.

  • Bust - circumference across the fullest part of your bust. Make sure the tape is straight across.
  • Waist – circumference across your waist. Waist can be found when you bend to the side, where your hand sits.
