Terms and Conditions

  1. By booking with Bumblebee Bridal, you agree that you and all members of your wedding party, having their hair and or makeup styled by Bumblebee Bridal, are covered by the following terms and conditions.
  2. Once you have confirmed your booking with Bumblebee Bridal by email a non refundable booking fee of £50 is payable to secure your wedding date until your trial date. This amount is redeemable against your trial cost should you not be happy with the results of your trial. If you cancel your wedding date before the trial the £50 booking fee will not be refunded. If you cannot make a trial 48 hours notice must be given or you will be charged the £50 booking fee. It is at Bumblebee Bridal’s discretion to refund this booking fee in exceptional circumstances.
  3. Once a booking deposit is received your wedding trial/ day prices are fixed according to your booking invoice.
  4. Once a successful trial is completed. A further booking fee is required to hold your wedding in the Bumblebee Bridal diary. The total booking amount required is £200 (this is usually an additional £150 on top of the original booking fee) to secure your wedding date. The full booking fee amount is to be paid to Bumblebee Bridal at the trial or within 2 days after the trial, else the wedding date will no longer be secured in the Bumblebee Bridal diary. Bride only bookings have a deposit amount of £100.
  5. Booking fee’s are non refundable. This is due to the nature of the business as it is difficult to fill the allocated time slot(s) at short notice. Bumblebee Bridal may choose to refund a bride in exceptional circumstances but this is at their discretion.
  6. Payment for the hair and/ or make-up trial is to be paid in full at the trial.
  7. You will need to confirm party numbers no later than 2 weeks after your trial. This is to ensure assistants can be booked with plenty of notice. If the bridal party numbers decrease within 8 weeks of the wedding date the bride/ bridal party will still be liable for the full cost according to the Bumblebee Bridal minimum number policy. If the bridal numbers increase Bumblebee Bridal cannot guarantee the extra people can be fitted in on the day, although every effort will be made to accommodate additional party members where possible. In peak times it might mean an assistant cannot be found at short notice.
  8. Bumblebee Bridal reserves the right to bring an assistant on the day of the wedding if the party size exceeds 4x hair and makeup (or equivalent), access to the venue has time restrictions, we need to move venue or if the wedding ceremony is at an earlier time. This will either be confirmed at the point of booking, at your trial or when the party size can be confirmed. There is a charge of £50 per assistant.
  9. The remaining balance is to be paid in full 1 week before the wedding date by bank transfer.
  10. If no trial is being held a £200 booking fee is required (£100 for bride only) to secure the wedding date. If no trial is taking place for the bride, an additional charge of £20 for hair and £20 for makeup will be charged. This is to take into account the extra time needed to perfect the look without the previous trial run. There is no charge for other members of the bridal party who do not have trials.
  11. Final Payment - You will be invoiced on or as near to the 1 st of the month before your wedding month e.g. an August wedding will be invoiced On or around the 1 st of July. Payment is due within 14 days of this invoice.
