The Sun Investigate Online Wedding Dress Pitfalls
Did you see the full page article in Wednesday’s Sun (p37), telling the story of brides who had fallen victim to bogus online wedding dress sites?
They showed seven examples of the brides “Dream Dress” and pictures of the actual horror show that arrived. Don’t forget these poor ladies will have paid for the dress, the website will have disappeared off the face of the earth, and then the bride will have had to rush round looking for a last minute solution. It’s not news to us here at Tickled Pink, as we are regularly called upon to rescue panic-stricken brides with tear-stained faces. Fortunately we carry over one hundred “sample” dresses on our rails at any one time to make the wedding day a happy one. Many of our suppliers keep a range of styles and sizes on hand in their UK warehouses to help with the rescue act. What heroes. Tickled Pink is a founder member of the Retail Bridalwear Association which has worked with Brides Aware a website set up to expose these practices. Always buy from a bricks-and-mortar retailer, you will be fully protected by UK consumer law.
