3.Our contract with you

3.1 How we will accept your order. Our acceptance of your order will take place when i) you have paid an agreed deposit and ii) we tell you that we are able to provide you with the product, which we will also confirm in writing to you, at which point a legally binding contract will come into existence between you and us. These terms will apply to this contract.

3.2 If we cannot accept your order. If we are unable to accept your order, we will inform you of this and will not charge you for the product and refund any deposit taken. This might be because the product is out of stock, because we have identified an error in the price or description of the product or because we are unable to meet a delivery deadline you have specified in your original order.

3.3 Changes to an order. Once your order has been placed and our acceptance has been provided, we do not permit changes to gown designs.

3.4 Deposits. Deposits are non-refundable unless we cannot accept or fulfil your order. The deposit cannot be transferred to another person or item. This does not affect your statutory rights.

3.5 Cancellations. We do not offer refunds/cancellations once you have placed your order. In the event of a cancellation of the day or the customer being unable to attend, any monies paid thus far will be forfeited and non-refundable. Any items cancelled after an order has been placed will be subject to the full amount being immediately payable. We strongly recommend insurance is taken out for such unforeseen circumstances.

4.product descriptions and measurements

4.1 Products may vary slightly from their pictures. The images of the products in our brochure or on our website or in any other promotional materials are for illustrative purposes only. Although we have made every effort to display the colours accurately, we cannot guarantee that a device's display of the colours or the printed pictures in our brochure or on a sample swatch accurately reflects the colour of the products. Your product may vary slightly from those images/samples.

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 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 Timing. We will measure each person for each order and advise on the size to be ordered. If the bride or bridesmaids are 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 bride or bridesmaid defer being measured to a later date it will be the customer’s responsibility to ensure that such measurements are taken for the products to be ordered and delivered in time.

4.4 Fittings. A fitting fee of £30 will be charged if you fail to attend the appointment without giving 24 hours prior notice or if the fitting needs to be rebooked for another reason, e.g. incorrect or no shoes/underwear.

4.5 Delayed measuring. In the event that the customer places an order but requires Osh Gosh Gowns to obtain final measurements at a later date, the full terms and conditions of this agreement still apply in the event of order cancellation, and any payments will not be refunded nor are they transferrable.

4.6 Additional costs. Orders for gowns, 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.

4.7 Alterations. Osh Gosh Gowns provides an optional fitting and alteration service to the bride at an additional cost. The service provides for reasonable alterations to be carried out so that the garment will fit properly. In circumstances where the bride has changed significantly in size from the time of her measurements are taken to the time of delivery, the garment as ordered may no longer be the correct size and may need major alterations to make it fit. It may not be possible to alter the garment and maintain the integrity of the original shape and design of the dress. In such a case we have no right to undertake such alterations. In the event that we do agree to undertake such works, this will be under the bride’s discretion and a waiver will need to be signed to show your understanding that the alterations may change the design and integrity of the garment. Osh Gosh Gowns accepts no liabilities for alterations made by independent third-parties chosen by you.

-Alterations start from the following price-

-Wedding Dresses- from £90

-Bridesmaid/Evening dresses- from £40

-Prom- from £40

-Mother of the Bride/Groom- from £40.

5.Providing the products

5.1 When we will provide the products. During the order process we will let you know an estimated time frame of when we will provide the products to you. Please be aware unless a fixed date for delivery has been agreed in writing, we will provide you with an estimated delivery date, taking account of the complexities of any alterations to be made to the product and the location the product is being sourced from. We will make every attempt to work within this delivery date, though we will keep you notified of any delays. By way of guidance only, Products that are not in stock typically can take up to 6 months to arrive and can take longer during peak periods. If a bride orders late, her dress may not arrive until a few days before the wedding.

5.2 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 minimise 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 substantial delay in that we cannot fulfil the contract by the date of your wedding, you may contact us to end the contract and receive a full refund for any products you have paid for but not received.

5.3 Collection by you. If you have asked to collect the products from our premises, we will book an appropriate appointment for you.

5.4 If you do not re-arrange collection. If you do not collect the products from us as arranged, we will contact you for further instructions and may charge you for storage costs. If, despite our reasonable efforts, we are unable to contact you or re-arrange collection we may end the contract and clause 7.2 will apply.

5.5 When you become responsible for the product. The product will be your responsibility from the time you collect it from us.

5.6 When you own the products. You own the products once we have received payment in full.

We will contact you to tell you we are suspending supply of the products.

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 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.
