FAQ

Changes

Second fitting is where your decisions need to be finalised, and your weight needs to stabilise.  If you lose or gain weight that requires reconstruction of your couture bridal gown, or you change your mind on design, you will incur additional charges.

Why is my deposit non-refundable?

The deposit becomes a cancellation fee as fabrics have been purchased, patterns have been developed, and hours of designing have been made on your behalf.  

What happens if I change my mind?

The time involved to create your couture gown is up to 12 months, depending on the complexity. Bookings within this time frame are preferred. If orders are outside this timeframe, an additional fee will be charged.

The design meeting is charged at $300 and is paid at the time of booking.  If you order your couture wedding gown with Deborah Selleck, the $300 design consultation charge will be deducted from the final payment. 

 What happens if I lose or gain weight?

This fitting process creates the final pattern for your wedding gown, therefore your weight needs to remain stable throughout the subsequent fittings.  Photos will be taken of you in the muslin toile for your reference.  This is the time where any changes to the design should be noted, and the quote can be amended to reflect these changes.

What happens if my wedding date changes?

If the wedding date changes, the timeline will need to be negotiated on a case by case basis.

What if I don’t like my gown half way through?

This is why we go through an extensive consultation process, to prevent any hesitation or second guessing.

After we sketch the gown, we drape the silhouette for you to help you visualise it and to ensure you are happy and have the confidence with your decision. You are welcome to bring trusted family and friends to fittings for support and feedback.

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to discuss with Deborah.
