- We are based in Lancashire. Unfortunately we do not have a showroom for the public at the moment. We have previously concentrated on wholesale direct to the retail trade and our prices are based on our wholesale prices but are now brought direct to the public. This represents substantial savings to our buyers as there are no high on costs that are normal for high street shops (sometimes up to 4 times).
A number of our dresses are available in some shops in the UK but they are usually at considerably higher prices
Is payment secure?
- We use the totally secure services of PayPal allowing you to pay in total security with any major credit or debit card or with your current PayPal account if you have one.
Can I return the dress?
- We offer a returns policy if the dress we make and send is the wrong size, wrong style or wrong colour or other errors by us.(ie not as ordered) If the dress arrives damaged please contact us immediately. It is a costly and time consuming process to make dresses for individual customers therefore we can not accept the style does not suit me as a reason for returning a dress. We are a fair trade company that sell many dresses on small profit margins.
I am getting married next year. I'm worried you will discontinue the style that I really like.
This dress style is very likely to still be available next year however as with most things the price may rise.
It is possible to make sure and reserve the dresses at the current price and reserve material by paying a deposit or by fully ordering the dresses now and giving the measurements a few months before your wedding date.
If you were to reserve the dresses you can complete the payment and provide the measurements a few months before your wedding date.
If you do wish to reserve any dresses please let me know and I will arrange an e-invoice.
