How much, and how can I get one of these amazing dresses?

Celia Grace dresses range in price from $500-$3,000. While they recommend buying your dress at least six months before your wedding, Celia Grace usually accommodates rush orders (rush fee applies, so plan ahead if you can!). For the sake of super-convenience, they also use standard sizing — note: They use “street” sizing, not smaller bridal sizing — in US sizes 0-14 with additional sizes available.

Celia Grace sells their dresses three ways:

  1. You can always find their dresses at their Amherst, MA and Brooklyn, NY studios and at fabulous independent bridal shops in Dream Bridal in Boston, Chicago, Cleveland, Minneapolis, and more.
  2. These dresses tour the US. See their trunk show schedule here.
  3. Finally, if you can't make it to a shop or a trunk show, they would be happy to mail you 1-2 sample dresses to try on. This is US only and costs $50 (the fee is nonrefundable, but they'll take $50 off your order). Request a sample dress to try on here.
