Shipping Info

We highly recommend you read this page in full prior to placing an order; especially notes regarding ordering a floor length gown. Please understand that as COVID restrictions are easing across the country in Spring 2021, many special occasions and proms have been scheduled on short notice, spurring incredible demand for floor length gowns and putting pressure on gown manufacturers, who have otherwise operated with thin staff for the past year. Delays and backorders are occurring and we highly recommend you only order a gown well in advance to your event.

When is my order shipping?

When your shipping label is created, we will email you a confirmation with your tracking information. 

GOWNS: Gowns do not necessarily ship right away. Most gowns ship immediate, however, some of our floor-length gowns may be on backorder in periods of high seasonal demand or due to popularity. (Prom Season and Spring this is far more common) Your gown will ship when the reorder arrives or when they finish making more of the gown. We encourage you to email us info@ladyblacktie.com if you have any questions about a specific gown's availability and estimated ship date before placing an order.

If you paid for the 3 day shipping option for a gown with longer processing time, rest assured you will still receive the 3 day shipping option you paid for, once the gown is processed and shipped. Shipping timeframes start from the moment a dress ships, not from the date the dress is ordered. To clarify, it is not a 3 day delivery like amazon, it is 3 day shipping service.

COVID: Please understand that with COVID-19, and the world re-opening in Spring 2021, the demand for floor-length gowns has increased tremendously.
