Returns Policy

*PLEASE NOTE ALL SALES ARE CONSIDERED FINAL
Please choose carefully as we do not offer returns or exchanges on items purchased. Ready to wear gowns are non refundable for change of mind purchases. We also have a ‘no refund’ policy on 50% holding deposits made.

We carefully detail product descriptions on each garment and are happy to provide specific measurements if needed.

We will specify any imperfections or repairs needed to vintage items in the product description, however please note that due to the aged nature of vintage clothing this should be factored into your purchase.

We will happily recommend and refer you to a bridal alteration specialist in the Sydney-wide area should you need any modifications to your purchase.

*SIZING AND FIT
Please read the vintage sizing information below to ensure your item is a successful fit for you. If you are still uncertain about the sizing or fit of an item please contact us directly and we will happily provide you with additional photos or information.

We highly recommend measuring yourself with dressmaker’s measuring tape prior to purchasing.

*VINTAGE SIZING
Please note that vintage garments are a significantly different fit than clothing made today. Modern clothing is generally cut larger to cater to a wider range of women and sizing, while vintage clothing is cut much more tailored and closer to the figure. Therefore extra care is needed when wearing vintage clothing given the nature of the aged fabric and more tailored construction of the garment.

Borrowing Gowns

Wedding gowns, vintage dresses or bridal accessories taken on loan for the purpose of styled photo shoots or other are to be treated with the utmost care. All responsibility for the maintenance and care of all items remain with the borrower whilst in their care. The borrower will be solely responsible for any damage to The Barefaced Bride’s property and will need to cover any dry cleaning costs should this occur. In the event any item is lost or irreplaceable the borrower will need to cover the listing price of the item as stated on The Barefaced Bride’s web site.

Hiring Gowns

Wedding gowns, vintage dresses or bridal accessories used for rental or hiring purposes will be charged at a rate as agreed between the Client and The Barefaced Bride at time of hiring. Hiring duration will be agreed upon at time of hiring.

The Barefaced Bride reserves the right to charge the consumer the listing price (as stated on The Barefaced Bride website) to replace a damaged garment. In the instance where a garment can be repaired for an amount less than the listing price, The Barefaced Bride reserves the right to charge the client this value.

We advise that clients who intend to hire and thoughtfully wear our items should be mindful if using fake tanning products. In the event that fake tan stains a garment and prevents it from being sold, The Barefaced Bride reserves the right to charge the client the listing price of the garment. If the item is stained but is able to be professionally removed by our dry cleaning service, an additional cleaning charge will apply.

The Barefaced Bride reserves the right to recharge the client the hire fee for any garment that is not returned within the specified hire period. Should the dress arrive later than your hire return date you will be charged a late fee.

A client who loses or steals a designer gown will be charged the garment’s recommended retail price to ensure that the item can be replaced.
