Shipping & Returns

Shipping Policy

Dresses can take from a couple of weeks to a couple of months to arrive. It depends on the supplier.

When you have placed an order, we will contact you to let you know about how long it will take to arrive. Alternatively, you can contact us to get an estimate before you place an order.

If you place an order that will take longer than 3 months and you need it earlier, you will have the option of choosing another dress or getting a refund.

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW

Orders are shipped with Australia Post or DHL depending on your location.

All Australia Post orders have authority to leave your parcel in a safe place. All DHL parcels require a signature upon delivery.

Valley Bridal is not responsible for any delays caused by Australia Post or DHL, especially during high volume seasons or due to COVID-19

If you have any further questions, please get in contact with us.

Return & Exchange Policy

If you are ordering online for the first time, or unsure about your size or have questions about a particular style or colour, Valley Bridal recommends contacting our friendly customer care for assistance PRIOR to making a purchase.

The following Returns Policy is drafted in accordance with Australian Consumer Law which is overseen by the Australian Competition & Consumer Commission in Australia.

 

 

RETURNS

It is absolutely important to us that you are completely satisfied with your purchase. That is why we offer an exchange or credit note in cases which: 

  • The item does not fit you

  • You have simply changed your mind

Provided that:

  • The item is unworn and in original condition 

  • You notify us within 7 days from date it was delivered

  • Your name is on the back of the return parcel OR your invoice is included in the return parcel

  • Australian customers MUST ship the item back to us within 14 days of receipt of the package once the return is approved by us

  • Absolutely no returns accepted on items returned to us with makeup/tan marks. If this is the case, the package will simply be returned back to the customer.

 

Any credit notes will be issued in the form of a code which can be used at the checkout to purchase a replacement. 

Please note all return shipping costs need to be covered by the customer except in cases where the item is confirmed to be faulty by our team. If this is the case, we will refund your shipping costs.
