The Nature and Care of David’s Bridal Merchandise

David's Bridal's merchandise is created to be worn for special occasions and not for everyday wear. General wear and tear, damage or colour changes that occur with wear or improper storage will be your responsibility, not the fault of David's Bridal. Please follow the care instructions on the label inside your garment and if you have any questions about your merchandise, please contact us at

Merchandise Not Picked Up

Sixty days after your recorded event date (the date you gave David's Bridal for your wedding, prom, occasion, etc.), if you have not picked up merchandise for which you have paid in full, that merchandise will be considered abandoned. If the merchandise has not been altered, David's Bridal may (at its discretion) offer you the option to be credited for such merchandise less administrative costs incurred by David's Bridal. Otherwise, your rights to the merchandise will terminate. During the sixty day period after your recorded event date, David's Bridal will try to contact you by phone, email and/or postal mail to request that you pick up your merchandise. If you are unreachable or unresponsive to David's Bridal's communications, your rights to the merchandise will similarly terminate.

Reserving Merchandise

Merchandise available in the store, with a minimum value of £100 may be reserved upon receipt of a 25% minimum deposit. The minimum deposit will be equal to 25% of the total current prices, inclusive of VAT, of all merchandise being reserved. In exchange for your 25% deposit, David's Bridal will place on hold the merchandise listed on your signed reservation receipt for a period of 90 calendar days from the receipt date. The 90th day is referred to as the pickup date. If you cancel the reservation, David's Bridal will retain your deposit; if you paid more than 25% for your deposit, David's Bridal will retain 25% of the total value of the merchandise reserved and will refund the remaining amount of the deposit paid as well as any additional payments you made toward the reservation on a store voucher.

The remaining balance on a reservation must be paid within 90 calendar days of the receipt date. You may pay the balance by up to, but no more than, 4 installments, made in person or via phone. You must make your final payment in person, in the store where the reservation was made, on or before the pickup date. You must take the merchandise with you upon final payment as the reservation period will have ended.

Special Orders

David's Bridal may be able to place an order for select merchandise that is not available in the store; this type of sale is a Special Order. Special Orders require payment in full at the time of ordering. You must sign your receipt for a Special Order to confirm that the style number, colour, and size being ordered are correct. Unless faulty, merchandise that is specially ordered is non-returnable, non-refundable and non-exchangeable. Those conditions of purchase are stated on your Special Order receipt.

You will be notified when your order has arrived at the store; you must pick up your order within 14 calendar days of that notification date.
