My bridesmaid is not in the country / unable to attend the pop up shop, how can she order her dress ?
If a bridesmaid is unable to attend an appointment, we will require her bust, waist and hips measurements to determine her dress size. A down-payment of $400 TTD or more can be made in person or via Paypal or our bank account to confirm her order.
Are all dresses in stock?
We have mostly samples in stock, varying in different sizes for bridesmaids to try on. Whilst some styles can be purchased in stock, most styles will need to be ordered in.
Do you carry plus size dresses?
Yes, most of our dresses are available up to 3XL, and select styles up to 5XL. If your bridesmaids require plus size options, we recommend bringing them to the first appointment (particularly if you want all the girls in the same dress). If they are unable to attend, please provide us with their bust, waist and hips measurements before the appointment.
How long in advance should I order my bridesmaid dresses?
We recommend ordering dresses 4 months in advance of your wedding date to ensure you get the sizes and colours needed and to allow time for alterations. However if pressed for time, we can accommodate rush orders (see below).
How long will the dresses take to arrive once ordered?
Once a down-payment is made, you can expect delivery within 3-6 weeks with regular shipping.
If you need the dresses in a hurry (once all sizes/colours are in stock), your order can be rush shipped within 2-3 weeks for TT$50-$100 extra per dress (depending on weight). Your VAR consultant will advise which styles are available for rush shipping.
What is the payment procedure?
Payments can be made in cash or deposited to our bank account. A 50% down-payment on each dress is required to finalize and place the order. The balance owing can be paid upon collection.
Does VAR offer dress alterations?
