Your chosen product may vary slightly from those images or samples in store.
4.2. Making sure your measurements are accurate. Once measurements and sizing have been taken for your order, we will not be held responsible for any weight loss/gain or any other changes in your measurements and sizing (for example due to loss of limbs including pregnancy and post-pregnancy). If your measurements and sizing change it will be your responsibility to notify us, in which case we will confirm if we are able to make further alterations prior to delivery and what the estimated additional costs will be.

4.3. Sizing Liability. We cannot be held responsible if a garment does not fit if you have chosen a different size from the size recommended.

4.4. Size Charts. All garments are made to the manufacturer's or suppliers' size chart and are not made to measure so may require alterations when they arrive in store.
4.5. Timing. We will measure each person for each order and advise on the size to be ordered. If the bride is not happy with the sizing, they must inform us at the time of order. We will not be responsible for any sizing discrepancies after this time. If a customer defers being measured to a later date it will be the customer’s responsibility to ensure that such measurements are taken within sufficient time for the products to be ordered and delivered in time for your event date.
4.6. Additional costs. Orders for garments, which are not of a standard length or measurement, may be subject to a surcharge, the amount of which may not be known at the point of order. The finished measurement of a “special length” dress can vary by 1” either way. A surcharge of up to 30% will apply for this requirement. We will advise as soon as we can if this is applicable.
4.7. Guidance. Where we provide guidance in the choice of design, size, colour, and measurements we do so without any liability.

4.8. Garment Swatches. We cannot guarantee garment swatch colours due to the nature of dye changes and fabrics. Garment Swatches available from suppliers but can take up to 30 weeks to arrive in store. We cannot accept liability for a variation in colour from the swatch to the final garment.

5. Providing products

5.1. Delivery costs. The costs of delivery (if applicable) will be advised to you during the order process / set out in our current price list.
5.2. When we will provide the products. During the order process, we will let you know when we will provide the products to you. Unless a fixed date for delivery has been agreed in writing, we will deliver the Products within a ‘reasonable amount of time’, taking account of the complexities of any alterations to be made to the Product and the location the Product is being sourced from. By way of guidance only, Products that are not in stock typically take up to 10 months to arrive and can take longer during peak periods. If a customer orders late, the garment may not arrive until a few days before the wedding. Alterations can still be carried out within one day if necessary, regardless of complexities.
5.3. We are not responsible for delays outside our control. If our delivery of the products is delayed by an event outside our control, then we will contact you as soon as possible to let you know and we will take steps to minimize the effect of the delay. Provided we do this we will not be liable for delays caused by the event, but if there is a risk of a substantial delay in that we cannot fulfill the contract by the date of your wedding, you may contact us to end the contract and receive a refund for any products you have paid for but not received.
5.4. Collection by you. If you have asked to collect the products from our premises, we will book an appropriate appointment for you.
5.5. If you are not at home when the product is delivered. (If applicable) If no one is available at your address to take delivery and the products cannot be posted through your letterbox, we will leave you a note informing you of how to rearrange delivery or collect the products from us.
5.6. If you do not re-arrange the delivery/collection. If you do not collect the products from us as arranged or if, after a failed delivery to you, you do not re-arrange delivery (if applicable) or collect them from us we will contact you for further instructions and may charge you for storage costs and any further delivery costs. If despite our reasonable efforts, we are unable to contact you or re-arrange delivery or collection we may end the contract and clause 7.2 will apply.
5.7. When you become responsible for the product. The product will be your responsibility from either the time we deliver the product to the address you gave us (if applicable) or you collect it from us. A signature will be required for all deliveries and collections.
5.8. When you own the products. You own the Products once we have received payment in full.
5.9. We may also suspend the supply of the products if you do not pay. If you do not pay us for the products when you are supposed to (see clause 9.4) and you still do not make payment within 14 days of us reminding you that payment is due, we may suspend the supply of the products until you have paid us the outstanding amounts. We will contact you to tell you we are suspending the supply of the products. We will not suspend the products where you dispute the unpaid invoice (see clause 9.8). We will not charge you for the products during the period for which they are suspended. As well as suspending the products we can also charge you interest on your overdue payments (see clause 9.4).

5.10. Alterations. Alterations are not included in the sale price and are at an additional fee. Alterations are completed in the boutique on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays. You do not have to use our seamstress and are welcome to take your gown to an alteration specialist of your choosing.

Once the consumer is happy with the gown, they are not entitled to an exchange or refund of products purchased. This does not affect your statutory rights.

7. Our rights to end the contract

7.1. We may end the contract if you break it. We may end the contract for a product at any time by writing to you if:

9. Price and payment

9.1. Where to find the price for the product. The price of the product (which includes VAT) will be set out on the order form. We take all reasonable care to ensure that the price of the product advised to you is correct. However please see clause 9.3 for what happens if we discover an error in the price of the product you order.
9.2. We will pass on changes in the rate of VAT. If the rate of VAT changes between your order date and the date we supply the product, we will adjust the rate of VAT that you pay, unless you have already paid for the product (including delivery costs if applicable) in full before the change in the rate of VAT takes effect.
9.3. What happens if we got the price wrong? It is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the products we sell may be incorrectly priced. We will normally check prices before accepting your order so that, where the product’s correct price at your order date is less than our stated price at your order date, we will charge the lower amount. If the product’s correct price at your order date is higher than the price stated, we will contact you for your instructions before we accept your order. If we accept and process your order where a pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could reasonably have been recognised by you as a mispricing, we may terminate the contract, refund you any sums you have paid, and require you to return the product at our expense.
9.4. When you must pay and how you must pay. The balance of the price for the products must be paid before collection or delivery of the products and in any event within 14 days of notification that the products are ready. We accept payment by credit/debit card PayPal payments, bank transfer but do not accept payment by cheque.

9.7. We can charge interest if you pay late. If you do not make any payment to us by the due date, we may charge interest to you on the overdue amount at the rate of 5% a year above the base lending rate of HSBC Bank plc from time to time. This interest shall accrue on a daily basis from the due date until the date of actual payment of the overdue amount, whether before or after judgment. You must pay us interest together with any overdue amount.
9.8. What to do if you think an invoice is wrong. If you think an invoice is wrong, please contact us promptly to let us know. You will not have to pay any interest until the dispute is resolved. Once the dispute is resolved we will charge you interest on correctly invoiced sums from the original due date.

9.9. Forfeiting Products. Products that are specifically ordered for the customer that does not collect the goods within 6 months of having been first notified of delivery these items will be returned to stock for resale and all monies paid will be forfeited.

12.5. Even if we delay in enforcing this contract, we can still enforce it later. If we do not insist immediately that you do anything you are required to do under these terms, or if we delay in taking steps against you in respect of your breaking this contract, that will not mean that you do not have to do those things and it will not prevent us from taking steps against you at a later date.
