How would you like to try on wedding gowns in the comfort of your own home? Columbus delivery service and mobile app Whence makes it possible through its recent partnership with Worthington bridal shop LUXEredux.

Haven't yet heard of Whence or unfamiliar with how it works? "The app allows you to buy anything in the city and have it to your door in 90 minutes," CEO and Founder Web Smith explains. (Our sister publication Capital Style provides a rundown here.) Using the Whence app, brides-to-be can view a selection of nearly 400 gowns from LUXEredux. After narrowing it down to three choices, Whence will deliver them directly to you. The gowns-which are consignment wedding dresses-range from $1,200 to $5,000.

"Future brides no longer have to go to a bridal shop to preview their potential choice for a gown," Smith says. "If they choose one of the three, it is debited from their account and the other two are shipped back to LUXE in Worthington. It's beneficial for those too busy to make it to a bridal shop."

Whence has a 33 kilometer delivery radius, reaching Columbus as well as its surrounding suburbs. For more information about the service and how to sign up for Whence, visit
