TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF SALE – Please read carefully before placing your order

Wedding Dress Delivery In most cases your wedding dress can take anywhere between 3 and 5 months for delivery (some suppliers such as True Bride may quote longer). If we feel we are working to tight delivery times we will inform our supplier of the date of your wedding to confirm the order is OK to place. Our suppliers will only take orders they believe they can fulfil. You may be asked to opt for a ‘rush order’ to ensure that delivery is on time. In this is the instance you will be asked to pay for this express service. There will be a rush order fee £50-£100 depending on designer. Please note that in all cases your order delivery date is estimated and from time to time there may short delays so please be very flexible with your fitting dates if you are opting to buy a wedding dress which doesn’t leave a lot of time until your wedding once delivered.

On the day of purchase we will request a 50% deposit. Deposit is non-refundable

Balance outstanding on your wedding gown must be paid within 2 weeks of notification that your order has arrived in the showroom. If you are unable to try on and collect your wedding dress within a 2 week time frame you will still be asked to pay your balance in full. We will happily keep your dress for a longer period of time providing payment for wedding dress has been made in full.

If you change your mind about your wedding dress or in the very unfortunate circumstance have to cancel your wedding you must still pay for your wedding dress in full and collect from our boutique. We will do our best to offer advice on how to re-sell your gown on to recuperate some of the cost.

Faulty Wedding Dresses. In the very rare case you wedding dress should arrive with some sort of fault will return immediately to our supplier and ask them to rectify and send back to us.


If you buy an ‘off the peg’ wedding gown or a sample sale item you will be asked to pay for your wedding dress in full. This type of wedding dress sale is ‘non-refundable’

ALTERATIONS Majority of wedding dresses will need alteration. Service/alteration fees are paid directly to our recommended seamstress in cash only should you choose to use her. If you are not happy with quotes given for alterations, you are under no obligation to use our seamstress. In cases where you live far away you may want to use your own reputable seamstress to make travelling easier.

Made to measure gowns in most cases also still need alterations please bare this in mind when choosing between a whole size and a made to measure gown.

ALTERATION FITTING DAYS. We do not offer alterations on a Saturday. Alterations must be made on a Tuesday or Thursday between the hours of 10am and 4pm each fitting will last between 30 mins and 1 hour depending on the work that needs to be done. 2nd and 3rd fittings must be made on these days also. If you are not flexible on these days we can offer 2nd and 3rd fittings only in the evening with Krystyna, however a sales person will not be present to assist Krystyna for evening fittings. It’s important you are flexible with fitting appointments so that a member of the sales teams is able to be with you and provide their full undivided attention whist trying your wedding dress and accessories. Please do not be late for your alterations appointment. Our seamstress travels in specially for each bridal appointment. Thank you.

Your contract with Cutting Edge Brides ends when you have tried on your gown and are happy to either take away your wedding dress or begin alterations with one of our external recommended seamstresses. An alterations agreement is a separate contract with your chosen seamstress.
