FAQs on Brideside Facilities and COVID-19
Brideside’s mission is to provide brides and their loved ones with peace of mind and happiness during one of life’s most meaningful moments. With recent developments regarding COVID-19 and out of an abundance of caution, we wanted to address some questions you may have about Brideside dresses, production facilities and delivery timelines.
Keep reading for answers to some of the most common questions we have been receiving.
Q1: Is it safe to order dresses from Brideside?
A: Yes. Harvard Health (along with the WHO and CDC) has reported that receiving packages and goods from other countries including China is safe. At this time, there is no evidence to suggest that Coronavirus can be spread to humans from soft surfaces (like fabrics). Our designers always take precautions to make sure that the products they are delivering to us are safe to wear.
Q2: Are Brideside facilities affected by the Coronavirus outbreak? If so, how?
A: All Brideside production facilities are open and operating, and most are shipping dresses on time. None of our facilities are directly impacted by COVID-19. Due to travel restrictions a few facilities are operating with limited staff; these outages have resulted in some shipping delays but most are minor.
Q3: Can you tell me more about your shipping timelines?
A: Here is a more detailed look at current delivery timelines by designer [Updated 5.27.20]:

Q4: I already ordered a dress. Will the delivery be delayed?

If you’re wondering when your dress will arrive, you can always look in your account to find expected delivery dates. We are providing updates as we get them, so be sure to check your email and account weekly for notifications for our team.
