All accounts must be paid in full before Customer’s garments may be removed from the store.

Once garments are removed from the store, Customer bears all risk of loss as to such garments.
Any alterations requested, whether additional or for the first time, will be charged a rush fee if requested within thirty days of the Customer’s wear date. The rush fee for bridal garments is fifty dollars ($50.00), and the rush fee for non-bridal garments is twenty-five dollars ($25.00).
