Ordering Information
The most important thing for you to do is measure yourself with a cloth tape measure. Wedding gowns are not the same measurements from label to label. Used gowns may have been altered leaving no extra fabric to let out. If you want a gown that is a good size for you you must measure yourself and compare it with the measurements of the gowns shown on this site. You might still have to have a gown altered. A gown too small with no seams to let out will have to have additional fabric added. This can be done but you should avoid doing so because the fabric color will never match unless it is taken from the dress. I will remeasure the gown for you and will let you know how much the seams can be let out. E-mail me ( because it takes a while to measure.
My thinking is, listing the gowns with measurements will give you a better idea of what might fit your measurements or where it has to be altered. Wedding gowns are made to be altered easily and there is almost nothing that can't be made to fit...within reason. A too short gown can't be made longer except through adding a ruffle. A tulle overlay skirt might be made longer this way. You could also add a length of wide lace or beaded fabric made for hemming bridal gowns. It is very expensive. Alterations are also expensive especially when they are complex but some are easier than others. 
If you have a question, please ask. I want you to be a happy customer and a beautiful bride.
Then, when you find an item you wish to order please email me (  or call: (518 355-7962) so I can let you know if it is still available. It will be removed from stock and held for you for 10 days while you are making payment. This assures it will not be sold while your payment is in the mail. If payment is not received within the 10 days, the item will be returned to stock.
The price of the item and the shipping and handling charges are listed at the end of the descriptions. If you are in New York State the sales tax is 8%, with some areas being higher.  Please include the proper amount with your payment. An incorrect total will mean a delay in shipping.  I collect sales tax for New York State. You are responsible for paying sales taxes, if any, outside of NY State yourself.

       Rosalie Meyers as they require photo identification.  You will also need my address and telephone number. I suggest you print this page to take with you. I will need the full name of the person actually sending the transfer,  phone number and Western Union's 10 digit tracking number.
I have noticed using Western Union's money transfers, they are quick, safe, very reasonable and available at large grocery stores. 
Please give me an address, phone number and e-mail for either payment transaction. I often find it necessary to get in touch when there is a problem. No information is shared.

Shipping is usually by US Postal Service Priority Mail.

When it is shipped I will let you know how it is going, the tracking number and when you can expect it. I'd appreciate it if you would let me know when it arrives.  
Returns, exchanges or refunds are not allowed.  We take pride in selling merchandise that is clean, stain free and in wearable condition and will continue to do so. I guarantee the gown to be as advertised except for measurements because we can only measure the gown and not the person. We do our best to be accurate.
