Your wedding day takes a lot of planning. You put in a huge amount of effort, time and money into making your special day as special as you’ve dreamt it. However, as much as you put your efforts into your wedding day, things can still go wrong. Perhaps the most likely thing to go wrong is that one of your wedding suppliers will go out of business. What can you do if this happens, and how can you plan for it?
Bridal companies deal with large amounts of money, often for products that will only be provided far in advance. This creates a particular risk of falling into administration for wedding suppliers. In November 2018, a bridal company called Berketex Bride went into administration, and ceased trading. The company, which had 15 branches nationally, closed all its stores on the 13th of November.
With more than 50 years of experience selling wedding and bridesmaid dresses, the closure of Berketex comes as a surprise to many. On the company’s Facebook page, customers showed their surprise at the closure. Many believed that they would be left out of pocket by the unexpected news, and without a wedding dress.
It is difficult to know what to do if this happens. Wedding dresses can be extremely expensive things, and as such should come with some paperwork. If you have paperwork proving that you have paid money for a product and not received it, you should have a better chance of getting your money back.
