I have paid a deposit on a wedding dress and the wedding has been cancelled, the dress has not been ordered as yet or any measurements taken, how do I stand in law as to getting my deposit back ? As I'm being refused. Many thanks
You say deposit of £38 is this the total amount or likely to be more ?

Thanks Alex
The dress was from a shop.
Thank you. Are there any signs or were you told the deposit was non refundable?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
No we were told a deposit was needed before the dress could be ordered. So the deposit was paid ! we then went on holiday so measurements were never taken.
If there is nothing saying the deposit cant be refunded then it can be. You needed to be informed at the point of contract if the deposit could not be cancelled.
As such you can cancel and get a full refund if the work has NOT been carried out.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
No thank you very much Alex, I will contact the shop again ans see what can be done !
Many thanks
Kind regards Lyn
Good luck Lyn
