Policies and Procedures


REFUNDS AND EXCHANGES

Meraki by Sherry is a customized boutique. All pieces are made one by one, custom to each client's specific measurements, height and color request. Therefore ; NO REFUNDS OR EXCHANGES. We DO NOT offer exchanges for incorrect sizes. Once an order has been placed and payment has been made, all payments are applied to the making of your dress including securing the fabric from outside vendors and stopping payments already made to vendors is not possible. We are not able to assume financial responsibility for changes in your personal situation. We are not responsible for changes in size due to weight loss, weight gain or pregnancy. We offer alterations for gowns only. However, if alterations are needed, you have 7 days to return the dress. There will be an additional fee if you loss or gained weight. We are not responsible for wrong sizes. In a rare event that you do not receive the dress within the estimated timeframe , you can request a refund only if you receive it a day after your event or photoshoot. If you order during prom season , please place an order at least 3 months prior to your event to receive it weeks before. 

Deposits

Once an order has been placed and payment has been made, all payments are applied to the making of your dress including securing the fabric from outside vendors and stopping payments already made to vendors is not possible. If you cancel your order after production, you lose your deposit along with any payments made. If you decide to cancel your order for any reason, you lose your deposit. 

If your order is less than $400, then you must pay the full price to book us. If your order is more than $400 and you do not wish to pay the full price today, then a deposit is required. The deposit is 50% of the total price and it is deducted from the total price.  YOUR BALANCE MUST BE PAID IN FULL BEFORE SHIPMENT OR DELIVERY.

Changes

I realize that having a custom dress made is a sort of evolutionary process, and sometimes it may be necessary to make changes to the design or construction in order to make it work. However, the earlier in the process these changes can be made the better, so if you are thinking that you would like to make a change, please let me know as soon as possible so that I can accommodate your request.  In most cases, if you let me know soon enough I can make minor changes at no additional charge. If there is a major change which requires the purchase of more material or additional labor, there may be extra charges which will be agreed upon by both parties before the changes are made. However, once the production process has started no changes can be made.
