All Obsidian Gothic Bridal Gowns are individually made to measure (MTM), so you will need to place your order at least 3 months before your dress is required (earlier if possible).
When you place your order a deposit of 50% of the total cost is necessary to secure my time for the construction of your dress.
You have a 7 day cancellation period after paying your deposit, if your order is cancelled after the 7 day period the deposit is non refundable.
Swatches of fabric are available on request.
This is a good idea if colour matching is important as pictures on screen are not exact representations. Shades of fabric can also differ slighty when I re-order from my suppliers.
Ideally I would prefer you to visit my studio & be measured for your dress, but you can provide your own measurements if you are unable to visit.
Please make sure these are accurate, full information of how to measure yourself will be provided.
I accept no responsiblity for any wrong measurements provided by yourself.
After an initial consultation you will ,usually, only need to come for one fitting during the making of your dress.
Payment can be made either via paypal (I will email you an invoice through paypal) or by cheque/postal order made payable to Obsidian Gothic.
The full balance of your dress is payable upon collection.
As all my bridal gowns are individually made to order I do not offer refunds.
