security procedures mean that we may occasionally request proof of identity

but can not be held responsible for late deliveries from them or
misinformation. In the case of force majeure we can not be held

Supply of Goods
Due to the nature of our product
range we are unable to guarantee the availability of products when placing
your order. On the rare occasion that an item is no longer available, then

After your wedding. In most cases your garment
will clean beautifully. Be assured we will use our expertise over 20 years
to clean your garment however we cannot guarantee our service. Especially
if manufacturers do not give proper cleaning instructions. We promise however
to give best results achieved. You use our service at your own risk.
We offer a
service. Our customers may choose to have a garment made to their own specifications.
If we feel this is a workable design we will order for you a customized
garment. Our sizes are by our sample garments and our chart, there are 2(5cm)
between each size, we will calculate your size from the sample garment you
try on, if a garment is 2(5cm) too big or small then the next size up or
down will be ordered etc. you may have a different size bodice to skirt
also longer or shorter length. We do not take your body measurements, these
garments are not made to measure and may need slight alterations once the
style and size have been agreed then manufactured. This system has been
proved extremely successful over the years (23) as there is only a need
to be accurate to every 2(5cm), however we cannot be held responsible for
client weight/size fluctuation.
Bespoke Garment delivery times
Normal delivery time is 20 - 28 weeks.
However if a longer lead time is given to us we may feel it appropriate
to ask for later delivery from our suppliers as storage of garments for
a longer length of time may be felt risky.
Short notice bespoke orders
We will not take an order if
enough lead time is not thought possible. When placing an order with a
shorter lead time than normally required by our suppliers, then a
special order charge may be required. Your order will arrive in time for
your function but an expected delivery date is not normally possible as
(short notice) orders
are usually processed in between the processing of normal lead time orders.
Alternatively HOUSE OF COUTURE
do hold stock for short notice functions.
Please consider Wedding insurance.
Balances are due upon cancellation.
Goods/orders cannot be cancelled
once the order is placed with our suppliers or taken out of stock.

garment of a particular style and colour will be sold for each prom. However
we cannot guarantee this although we promise to make every effort. We use

or errors made. Prom orders are 12 - 16 week delivery. Less than this time
