Product Descriptions and Prices
All prices are inclusive of VAT where applicable. All prices advertised in magazines, newspapers or online wedding directories or resources apply to the price at the time of submitting the item to that publication or website. Crystal Bridal Accessories reserves the right to amend (increase or decrease) prices on this website without prior notice.

We will only accept returns if we have been notified within 30 working days of you receiving the product that you wish to obtain a refund or exchange. We require all goods to be returned to us within a total of 30 working days from delivery to you. All returns must include all the original item packaging including any gift boxes, hat boxes, shoe boxes (unmarked), shoe bags and swatches.
IMPORTANT NOTE: If shoes have evidence of being worn without foot socks or scuffed / pitted soles due to not trying on a carpeted surface these are not deemed suitable for refund or exchange. Please do take extra care of all goods to ensure they remain in the same perfect new condition as despatched, unless you have decided to keep them as failure to do so will be classed as your acceptance of the goods. If any items are returned in used/marked condition, we will return them to you without processing a refund or exchange.
Comparing shoes, hair accessories or jewellery….? We will only allow a maximum of TWO pairs of shoes or hat and headwear items per customer for style comparison purposes. However, this does not include any shoes or made to order items which have to be ordered directly from our supplier in which case we will contact you to inform you of this or request further information about shoe sizes and styles which you are ordering. We do believe that this will minimise returns – for you as a customer as well as from our point of view as an efficient company – and from experience, we have found that narrowing the choice to two items means that brides are more informed about which styles they like before they place their order.
We reserve the right to reject an order if we suspect that a customer is taking advantage of our returns policy.
Shoe sizing is approximate in all cases and sizes vary greatly between different brands. We always recommend that if a customer is having a pair of shoes bleached to white or dyed to a colour that they select the ‘Try before you Dye’ and ‘Try before you Bleach’ options to ensure they are ordering the correct size.
Crystal Bridal Accessories will not be held responsible for shoes which do not fit as all of our sizes are an approximate guide only.
