Alteration terms and conditions
If you have chosen an alterations option, we will do everything we can, to make sure that the dress is done according to your measurement. We check with an adjustable mannequin that has your measurements, that each piece is done correctly before shipment. However, due to nature of delicate fabrics, your dress might still require some small alterations. If you can come and see us in London, we are happy to do the final adjustments. If you are unable to come for a final fitting, we will not be able to do any final adjustments without seeing you, unless this is a straightforward shortening the length of the dress/sleeves. Minna is not liable to pay for any alterations done elsewhere. If you have any questions about this, please email us firstname.lastname@example.org
Please allow 1,5-3cm variation for hemline length. The fabric will naturally drop few cm during production. We do try to minimise this as much as we can but most of the time it is out of hands.
Minna is not responsible for inaccurate size ordering, or an incorrect size due to a customers change in size during dress production. We are not liable to make any alterations if your measurements have changed and we have not been notified.
Please note, if the measurements have been taken by someone outside Minna, we are not liable to make any alterations/changes to the item.
If you wanted any changes done to any of our veils, belts or head pieces, please choose custom-made option.
