A security bond deposit is taken upon making a booking **. We require this to be paid within 14 days of booking your event. Details of the deposit amount are stated on the quote/invoice. After this tentative period, your booking will no longer be held or confirmed. (A time extension may be given if required).
Payment plan options are available. A confirmation invoice will be sent detailing your event and the agreed price. By paying the deposit, you agree that once paid, the deposit will not be refunded until after the event and the return of all items in their original condition (see loss/damages).
If cancellation occurs within 14 days of your intended event date, there will be no refunds to any payments made. If cancellation occurs within 8 weeks of your event, up to 50% of the total will be forfeited. By paying the deposit for an event, the client agrees that once paid the deposit is non-refundable. In the case of postponed events, arrangements may be agreed for an alternative date.
At the discretion of Blooms Bridal Styling & Events, payments made outside of the agreed dates and terms may incur interest penalties at the rate of two percent(2%) per week on the balance owed.
In the event of severe weather conditions which may prevent you from holding your outdoor ceremony at your requested site, unfortunately there will be no payments refunded. Blooms Bridal Styling & Events will do their best to cater for your revised plans and co-ordinate your ceremony or reception at an alternate location, arranged by you. In this emergency, a minimum of 4 hours notice (unless otherwise discussed with us), would be required to accommodate your change of plans.
In the unfortunate event of inclement weather, the client understands the risks of choosing to hold their wedding ceremony in an outdoor location and will not hold Blooms Bridal Styling & Events responsible for anything that may not go to plan.
In the event of torrential rain or extreme winds, Blooms Bridal Styling &Events holds the right to withdraw the use of certain décor items (eg carpet runners, market umbrellas, arches, canopies, flags or marquees etc) if it is decided that it would be detrimental to the ongoing condition of the items or if we deem it unsafe. These terms and conditions also apply to any reception décor items that cannot be set due to inclement weather.

Once all goods are returned in the same condition, the security deposit amount will be refunded within 7 days following your event.

Councils and many establishments have regulations around the use of paper confetti, rice or any other form of compact streamers. Generally they are not permitted, so please read your permit carefully. Although Blooms Bridal Styling & Events offer a clean-up service we cannot be held responsible for any particles left behind. It is up to the client to inform their guests on confetti regulations and arrange a clean-up if used. Unless you have booked the drinks stand/beverage serving package or have made agreed arrangements with us, Blooms Bridal Styling &Events will not be held responsible for cleaning up empty drink bottles and cans that have been offered to your guests attending your ceremony.
