  1. Deposits / Refunds.

For all gowns, made to order, made to measure and custom made, as soon as your deposit is paid, your gown order is handed over to the design team, your order is scheduled into our production calendar, the patterns are created and the production of  the gown is started. This includes: design research and development, textile sourcing, liaison with you, fabric testing and purchasing,  embellishment design – sampling and production, drafting patterns, modifying and finalising patterns, toiling, textile cutting, plotting of patterns, garment machining, hand work, email and face to face conversations. For this reason all deposits are non refundable once your measurements have been taken.

  1. Cancellations

If for any reason your gown is cancelled during its development and construction,  all payments, deposit and progress payments are forfeited and are non refundable. The gown remains the property of Guipurean and Guipurean reserves the right to sell the gown if the order is cancelled at any stage of the gown’s development

We are obliged by law to pay all our employees, suppliers and contractors for any work undertaken on your gown. As such, your deposits and any progress payments are forfeited in the event that you no longer seek to purchase your order by the date originally agreed as we must adhere to the payment terms of our suppliers, contractors and employees. This is non-negotiable or disputable.

Guipurean will not be liable for any money owing to other parties or institutions as a result of the deposits and progress payments being non-refundable.

We currently operate a No Refund & Exchange policy – once you have ordered there is no option to refund or exchange  unless under the discretion of the designer, where no work has yet been undertaken.

In such an event where no patterns / fabrics or sewing has started prior to cancelling the order, and a refund has been approved, the designer of Guipurean reserves the right to deduct cost  associated  with any consult and design services should the order be cancelled prior to starting the development of the gown, to ensure the designers time and design development are compensated for.

All customers – by paying the deposit you are thereby adhering to these terms and conditions. It is your responsibility to read these terms and conditions before going ahead.

3.b  Postponements

In the unfortunate event of the wedding being postponed at any stage of the gowns development, any payments outstanding are required to be paid by the original dates due on / by. If the wedding is postponed more than 6 months from the original date, the gown must be completed, paid in full and collected within 3 months from the date of the original wedding supplied by the client at the time of booking the gown. Failure to do so, the gown will remain the property of Guipurean and Guipurean reserves the right to sell the gown if the progress and / or final payments are not adhered to.

If your wedding is postponed after the gown has been completed or after a final fitting, the gown will need to be paid for in full and collected from Guipurean within 3 weeks of your original wedding date  by you or your nominated representative as our storage space is limited and we cannot hold gowns indefinitely. If the gown is not collected after 6 months or paid for in full, Guipurean reserves the right to sell the gown to compensate with no refund of any deposit or payments to you.

 

  1. Quotes & Pricing

All pricing is provided in Australian Dollars unless specified otherwise, inclusive of GST.

Quotes are made at the time of order and subject to supplier prices. In the event that suppliers cost increase, the quote is subject to change. Every effort will be made to communicate this to you at the earliest convenience.

The price of the Gown shall be the quoted price or where no price is quoted (or a quoted price is no longer valid) the price stated in Guipurean’s current price list at the time of acceptance of the order unless expressly otherwise agreed in writing by Guipurean.

Guipurean reserves the right to alter its current price list at any time without prior notice. All prices quoted are valid for 30 days only or until earlier acceptance by you, after which time if requiring to be altered by Guipurean, you will be notified prior to any additional charges.
Guipurean reserves the right to charge for all preliminary work undertaken including appointments, design sketches and samples produced at your request. Where no charge has been agreed then these will be at the value of work done and materials supplied.

 

4.1 Custom Made Quotes & Pricing

Please note, all custom gowns are quoted and invoiced as accurately as possible. Due to the nature of all custom designs, some aspects may be required to be modified to ensure a perfect fit, proportional design and flawless finish. In some circumstances this may require additional hours on top of what has been quoted. In the event of such occurrence, the client will always be informed of any changes that may incur additional cost. Guipurean will not carry out any additional work on top of what has been quote without the clients review of the additional cost and subsequently their approval.

 

  1. Consultations and fittings

Consultations and fittings are up to 60 minutes in length. The quantity of fittings will vary depending on the service the customer has selected and outlined in the invoice. Our studio is by appointment only and the customer will be provided with allocated consultation and fitting dates, organised within 4 weeks prior to each appointment.

Please come to your fittings with your bridal underwear and shoes. We kindly request no makeup, tanning creams or transferable hair dyes to be worn as this may stain your dress before the wedding and Guipurean will not be liable for any damage or stains that occur as a result of not adhering to the request.

The consultations and fittings are essential to achieve an exceptional result and for this reason we kindly request no more than 2 additional friends or family members to attend the consultations and fittings to ensure there are no distractions for the designer and you.

IMPORTANT: The creation of a made to measure or custom gown is a detailed process, from pattern, to alterations and gown sewing, in which the Guipurean team take great pride in ensuring every stage is given the attention it requires. Modifications to design, changes to fit, additions and subtractions to a gown AFTER we have started the pattern development will result in additional time to be spent to change them to a new design and therefore we must pass on this cost to the client for her change of mind.   For this reason, we will require the client (the bride) to sign off on the final prototype, declaring she approves the fit and design of her gown BEFORE the real gown is cut to ensure there are no modification once the real gown is constructed. ANY modification to design or fit on the real gown will result in additional time and possibly re cutting, all of which has not been included in the approved quote and therefore must be charged accordingly. Minor fitting changes where  seams are required to be taken in less than 2cm total across the dress, hem levels and sleeve lengths shortened are excluded from this condition.

  1. Design

The gown design remains the intellectual property of Guipurean at all times.

 

  1. Garment Care

Your gown will be given to you in a breathable bridal garment bag. This bag is not intended for long term storage or to withstand dampness, direct sunlight, direct heat or exposure liquids or other chemical substances.  Should you feel that your Gown will require additional protection on pick up please advise Guipurean 7 days prior to collection. We will do our best to accommodate your requirements best to our ability but we are not liable for any damage a Gown receives once it has left our premises.

Only use professional dry cleaners specialising in bridal gowns. Our gowns are made of various materials, laces and embroideries, each of which requires different requirements for care. Please use bridal professional dry cleaners only. Guipurean is not liable to any damage to any gown as a result of dry-cleaning.

 

  1. Liability

We will take your measurements at the time of booking the gown. Guipurean is not responsible should the customer’s body measurements fluctuate after the initial measurements are taken. Whilst every effort will be made to adjust the garment, no guarantees are made for perfect fit should the customer’s body shape or measurements change, we cannot be held accountable for this and the bride must pay the alteration costs.

We will not be responsible if our suppliers do not deliver fabric / materials to the date provided to Guipurean at the time of Guipurean placing the order to the supplier. Every effort will be made to supply a suitable replacement in this unlikely event and the customer will be notified immediately in the event.

 

Made to order and made to measure gowns may vary slightly from the original sample in colour and/or shading due to the variations in dye lots, and availability of material.

Gowns paid in full must be collected within a maximum of 6 months after the advised wedding date, unless otherwise arranged. A charge of 10 per cent of the gown value will be applied per month should we need to hold the gown for longer.

Uncollected gowns not paid in full will be returned to stock and resold. Money paid to date is forfeited if orders are not paid for in full and uncollected.

We do not take any responsibility for a garment once it has left our possession. A garment left on our premises in storage after completion of sale / original wedding date is left at the customer’s own risk.

Guipurean accepts no responsibility or liability for the suitability of a gown for use outside its intended purpose.

Guipurean shall not be liable to the customer or be deemed to be in breach of the Contract by reason of any delay in performing, or any failure to perform, any of the customer’s obligations in relation to the Gown, if the delay or failure was due to any cause beyond Guipurean’s  reasonable control.

Without prejudice to the generality of the foregoing, the following shall be regarded as causes beyond Guipurean reasonable control:-
a. Act of God, explosion, flood, Pandemic, tempest, fire or accident;
b.  import or export regulations or embargoes;

  1. Machinery breakdown or delay as a result of supplier, contractor or employee illness or injury.
  2. The customer accepts that there will be minor variations in colour, lace and fabrics, between the original sample or image and that produced by Guipurean.
