Bespoke Big Day - Mission Statement
Bespoke Big Day was set up by a former (slightly tall) bride after finding all bridal shoes
available were either hideously high, hideously expensive or just plain hideous!
Our mission was to create a range of modern, unique, gorgeous and fun bridal shoes that
brides could customise to their perfect heel and colour (saving the dyeing cost too!) but
still at an affordable price.
We don't claim to be the cheapest bridal shoe company available, there are already plenty of
excellent companies selling fab shoes at a very good price, as long as you're looking for the
exact product they're offering. These companies buy in bulk and are a great choice for budget
conscious brides, who don't want or need to customise their shoe height (and don't mind
paying an additional £35 or so for dyeing if necessary).
What we do aim for is to make bespoke bridal shoes affordable for every bride and we are
confident you won't find anyone offering a fully bespoke shoe for less than us. We don't buy
in bulk, we make each and every shoe to order just for you, so you can be confident that any
shoe from us will be an exclusive one-off (we've yet to make the exact same shoe twice).
If we're maybe not quite what you're looking for, and are looking for a more high value
product, we can recommend a number of luxury customised shoe companies, whose products retail
at around £300-700. Please ask for more details!
1. How is a pair of Bespoke Big Day shoes made?
Our shoes are made on an order by order basis, with each pair individually crafted by
shoemakers in the production workshop. This method allows us to fulfil each order as the
client designs it - from style, to heel height to color and size.
2. What are the soles of Bespoke Big Day shoes made from?
All our shoes have man-made, non-slip soles made using synthetic fibers.

we have posted them.
After this period we reserve the right not to accept Exchanges, Faults or Refund requests.
Any Exchanges, Faults or Refund requests reported after 7 days will be entirely at our discretion.
We do not offer refunds under normal circumstances. Each shoe is hand-crafted bespoke to
order and we would offer an exchange. The only exception to this is if your wedding date
(not fitting date) is within 4 weeks, at our discretion we may offer a 75% refund. The
deduction of 25% is to cover the cost of a shoe which is now futile.
We accept exchanges on the grounds of

c. Your shoes do not fit despite following our size guides, and ordering your usual size
All exchanges under option c. may be subject to exchange fees of up to 25% of the shoe
Exchanges for Faults and Goods not as Ordered will be at our cost.
To request an exchange please email email@example.com explaining the reasons
and we will revert to your communication within 72 working hours.
The definition of faulty will be defined by Bespoke Big Day. We will categorise faults as
- minor faults
- major faults
Minor faults which can be resolved are to be returned to Bespoke Big Day within 7 days of
reporting the fault. We will endeavour to resolve the fault for you within a reasonable timeframe.
Major faults which require the shoe to be re-made may take up to our standard delivery
14. Photographic evidence
Bespoke Big Day is an online company. Therefore we reserve the reasonable right to request
photographic details of any reported faults prior to agreeing an exchange/refund.
15. Do not fit
Although most of our shoes fit perfectly first time, everyone is different and their shoes
may not fit. We request that customers who are unsure of their shoe size contact us prior to
ordering. We also provide a shoe size measurement guide in order to help you determine best fit.
Shoes exchanged for this reason may be subject to a 15% remake fee at our discretion. We reserve
the right not to post the replacement pair until your original shoes have been returned to us, in
perfect condition and the 15% fee paid.
16. Postage costs
Bespoke Big Day will not be responsible for postage costs. Any postage costs incurred are
entirely at the customers cost. We recommend using an insured and recorded postal service, as all
shoes are the responsibility of the sender until received (this works both ways).
17. "Bespoke" bespoke
We do sometimes take on orders for shoes which are not part of our usual shoe range. We
have a Bespoke Order form for this purpose. Any communication via email prior to the order will
not form part of the official order. Please ensure you enter your full order details into this
form. Bespoke Big Day receive over 300 requests a week, so we cannot guarantee to match your email
requests with incoming orders.
"Bespoke" Bespoke shoes cannot be returned unless they are "significantly not as described"

choose. Our payment provider PayPal offers a dispute resolution service and we encourage you to
contact them in the first instance should you not be happy with our decision. If you are still
unhappy, you are of course entitled to contact Trading Standards with your grievance.

from my own bridal fabric?

colour - however if you have a specific request please ask and we will endeavour to meet your
request - although this cannot be guaranteed. Any trims i.e. ribbon ties, will be as close a match as possible to the satin colour of your chosen shoes. However you acknowledge due to a difference in fabric these may not be an exact match.
