Finding your dream wedding dress should be as magical as falling in love, yet sometimes wedding dress shopping can be intimidating and stressful instead of joyful and celebratory. The number one question that can cause worry for many brides-to-be is, "What if the wedding dress I want doesn't come in my size?" With a large number of bridal designers only offering pre-made wedding dress styles with cookie cutter sizes and measurements, brides-to-be find themselves asking whether or not their wedding dress will feel perfect on their body. That’s where Casablanca Bridal steps in!
At Casablanca Bridal, we firmly stand by the fact that women are not defined by their “dress size," which is why Casablanca Bridal offers brides the option to order a standard size or to have their gown made-to-measure* ! We offer this option through our Authorized Retailers, who are experts in Casablanca Bridal customizations. Our made-to-measure option means that your gown will be individually handmade for YOU, specifically to your body’s unique measurements! Since this is a custom option, please note that there is a customization fee*. While we aim for our made-to-measure gowns to be as close to a perfect fit as possible, there is a chance you will need additional fittings or slight alternations to ensure it is as perfect as possible for your big day! Your local retailer will be your trusted guide all throughout the ordering, fitting and alteration process.

WHERE DO I GET STARTED?
The very first step to ordering your Casablanca Bridal made-to-measure gown is making an appointment with your local authorized retailer! Click here to visit our Store Finder and input your ZIP code to find a list of boutiques near you. Once you get in touch with your retailer of choice, they’ll help you set up your appointment and give you all the details you need to know before coming in. Be sure to bring your Pinterest wedding dress inspiration board, or any saved images of your favorite Casablanca Bridal styles!
WILL MY BOUTIQUE CARRY A SAMPLE OF THE DRESS I WANT IN MY SIZE?
Every Casablanca Bridal retailer carries different styles and sizes for each individual style. These standard size dresses are called "samples," which are ordered by boutiques so our gorgeous brides can try on dresses in-store and get an idea of what the end result of the completed gown will look like. This means that sometimes, your local retailer might not have the exact gown you're looking for in a standard size that fits perfectly - but fear not! If your store does not stock the specific style you’re looking for, ask them about our Gown On Loan Program, where our stores can request to rent any gown style from us in any available sample size for you to try on before buying for a small fee.
HOW WILL MY MEASUREMENTS BE TAKEN?
At your appointment, your stylist will be your wedding dress guru. Be sure to communicate your likes and dislikes, and be open to being surprised. Who knows - your perfect dress might be the one you didn’t expect! Once you fall in love with your dream Casablanca dress, your stylist will take your exact custom measurements upon placing your dress order. Those measurements will be sent to our design team, who will hand-make your dress to your custom measurements. Depending on whether or not you made any additional customizations (Since every Casablanca gown is also customizable!), your gown will be ready to pick up in 4 to 6 months.Once your gown arrives, your store will likely have you come in for a fitting and they will determine if further altering will be needed!
