Delivery & Returns

Order Processing

We are a small, very hands on team and we take a couple of hours checking and preparing each dress before sending. As such, shipping days will likely be limited to Monday and Thursdays. Please bear this in mind when purchasing for important dates or events. If you have an urgent request, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us at customercare@queensofarchive.com.

Orders received before 10am on shipping days should be dispatched that same day.

Returns Policy

We take great pride in our reputation for providing dresses of the highest quality and ensure our Queens are happy with their purchase. If for any reason you are not completely satisfied with your purchase, we will gladly exchange or refund your merchandise within 14 days of receipt, provided that:

  1. We are emailed to register your wish to exchange or return your item.
  2. We receive the return within 14 days of purchase.
  3. The item is returned in its original condition - unworn, unused, unwashed, undamaged with all original tags in place.
  4. The return is posted in the package in which it was received, or an equally secure outer box.
  5. If the item was a gift, the name of the purchaser must be noted.

Failure to meet these requirements may result in delays processing the return or receipt of the package by us.

In order to contact us regarding your return, please email our customer care at the below email address:

customercare@queensofarchive.com

We will then be in touch with you to provide you with the return instructions and a label which you must print and affix to the package.

Alternatively, you are free to send back the item via your own method, as long as the above criteria are met. We recommend using a tracked service and keeping proof of postage for your return to ensure we receive the item. We cannot complete a return (or refund) if the item is lost whilst being returned to us.

International Returns (Including EU)

The above criteria applies to international returns. Please contact us should you have concerns regarding your international return.

Return Costs

Unfortunately, being a new small business, we are unable to offer free returns. Please note that we do not refund original shipping costs or any duties or taxes incurred in a purchase. 

We definitely aim to be able to offer free returns as we grow however, in order for us to be able to keep producing more dresses and products, this is not an option for us at this time.

With this in mind, please carefully consider your purchase prior to payment using the size guide, product detail information (on each product page) or by contacting us to answer any questions you have.  

Refunds

Refunds issued (minus original shipping and return costs, if applicable) may take up to 5 working days to reach your account, depending on your bank, from the time we receive the item back.

Exchanges

Due to the exclusive, limited run of our dresses, please contact us at customercare@queensofarchive.com and we’ll try our best to assist with finding your desired alternative. We will need to receive the item back in accordance with our returns criteria (above) in order to process an exchange.
