Standard shipping method in the continental U.S. is UPS Ground, which normally delivers in 5 - 7 business days after leaving our location, and you will receive notification with tracking detail when the order has shipped.  We reserve the right to use USPS at our discretion on orders that are free shipping.  Signature required is only available upon request and will incur and additional $8 fee.  Expedited delivery options are available at checkout.  We will be unable to accommodate orders placed after 3PM EST for expedited delivery.  Shipments to locations outside the continental U.S. are not eligible for any shipping promotions. 

International Shipments
Many of the brands we carry can be shipped internationally under the following terms:
- Most international shipments are sent via UPS Air and we will send you an estimate of the shipping fees at time of order, our website is not great at calculating international fees except for Canada.
- Orders cannot be returned or exchanged
- Any duties or tariffs will be due to UPS at time of delivery.  We cannot provide an estimate of those fees.
Wedding Registry Services:
We reserve the right to change the terms of this program at any time, without obligation or notice to participants. 
Once you have confirmed your order based on the shipping window we provide, we consider a cancellation the same as a return, subject to the same restocking fees noted below.

Please email us at for return authorization and include your order number, return item, and reason for return.  It is not a mistake on our part if you receive items that do not match the color of a collection you have, or your décor.
Unused items may be returned within 15 days after delivery date, minus complimentary shipping and handling charges.  We will also deduct a 15%-25% restocking fee (depending on manufacturer) based on the original retail of the merchandise.  Original purchasers will receive a refund, gift recipients receive store credit only, valid for 90 days after purchase.  Return shipping charges are at your expense, and we highly recommend that you insure your package against loss and damage intransit.  Returns are only accepted with prior authorization.   
If an item is returned that shows signs of use, we reserve the right to refuse to honor the return.  Returns must be with original gift box and packaging material intact to avoid a surcharge.  WE DO NOT ACCEPT RETURNS OF COUZON OR SABRE FLATWARE

Our orders are carefully packaged and inspected prior to shipping.  If your order arrives damaged, please contact us within 3 days of receipt and send an image of the damage.  As our shipments are insured, all packaging materials must be saved in addition to the damaged item(s) as it may be necessary for UPS to inspect the order. 

Pricing, product descriptions and availability can change quickly, and although we make every effort to keep the website updated, we cannot warrant the accuracy or completeness of this information.  We reserve the right to refuse an order if there is a pricing error on our site.  Prices are subject to change without notice.
