Are you a H&W Bride? Or planning on being one?

I have always sent my gorgeous Brides something I call the 'Bride Guide' as I find it can help prepare Bride's once they have purchased their gown for the rest of the journey, and this weekend, I gave it a little refresh and it got me thinking that actually this advice is also perfect for Brides to Be who are just starting out on their Bridal Buying experience.

So I thought it might be an idea to share this advice, some is super helpful for every bride especially a H&W bride but it's an interesting read even if you purchased your gown elsewhere or haven't started shopping yet.

I am also open to feedback on your thoughts on what I have prepared? H&W brides I will be sending you the new version of the Bride Guide for reference but please do keep the old one too.


First Steps Finance:

You have paid your deposit, when do you pay the remainder?

Jemma or one of the team will have briefly discussed this with you at the appointment;

We offer three options for payments.

1. Full Payment at Ordering

2. 50% deposit, the remaining 50% is due on arrival of the gown at H&W

3. 1/3 deposit, the 2nd third instalment is due 3 months later and the final instalment is due within 30 days of arrival of gown at H&W

How do I pay the remainder?

The deposits can be paid by bank transfer and can also be paid over the phone, however this will incur an additional fee of 0.35% due to a compulsory charge from the bank for ‘Customer not present’ transactions.

No alterations can take place on a gown until the gown is paid for in full. Please review the delivery times for your gown to ensure you have the funds ready for when you are notified of the gowns arrival.
