When should you place your RENTAL ORDER?
In most cases we suggest that you make your reservation early. Most of our pieces rent out months in advance. This will help ensure that you have access to your first choice of dress, which includes our special addition gowns and limited release pieces. Our booking calendar will allow you to place an order and reserve up to a year in advance. In need of something LAST MINUTE? Send us an email and we will help you reserve something that is currently in stock and we will discuss rush order shipping options.
Start by browsing our inventory of carefully thought-out and selected dresses and accessories. We have meticulously thought out each rental item and rotate stock in and out often. Choose your favorite dress and accessory and reserve them by selecting your start date into the PRODUCT CALENDAR. Once you have selected your start date, the calendar will auto populate your END RENTAL DATE. Your start date should be (1-2 days prior to your actual event/shoot date. The 8th day (End Date) is the day your items are due back to us.
Any order that has a RETURN DATE that falls on SUNDAY OR A HOLIDAY MUST BE RETURNED TO US BY FRIDAY OR BY THE FOLLOWING BUSINESS DAY-BUT YOUR ORDER MUST BE RETURNED TO US ON TIME.
Day 1: (START DATE) Your items will arrive – It is important that your START date is NOT the day of your event or shoot. Please allow yourself enough time to receive the item/s and prep them for your shoot/event. In some cases – a package may be delayed (due to shipping service delays and in some rare instances due to a rental being returned to late to us. Should that occur we always email you to discuss the situation.) – it is best to allocate for any shipping delays.
Day 2: You can try on and work on styling your rental item/s to be absolutely sure everything looks just right!
Day 3: This should be your EVENT or SHOOT date.
Day 4: Start packaging up your items. Be sure ALL item/s are packaged in original box (unless damaged), double tape the box. Be sure ALL dresses are turned inside out and nicely folded as you received them. Please DO NOT clean any of the items – HOWEVER- Please be sure you have gotten out any sticks, grass, etc from the gowns before folding them. If you FAIL to remove sticks or other sharp objects – this can actually damage the item/s. ALL item/s should be shipped FED EX GROUND OR USPS PRIORITY ONLY (NOT USPS GROUND). Please do NOT use UPS. PLEASE DO NOT select (SIGNATURE REQUIRED & BE SURE YOU TELL THEM NOT TO ADD THIS ON.)
Please note: You cover your return shipping which can range from $10-60 dependent upon item/s you have rented and depending on if you are shipping the item/s back on a timely manner. Why do we do this? 1. We do this because we know many of our clients do NOT have a FEDEX nearby. 2. We also allow you to select the best and most reasonable options for return shipping. Also in some cases you need the item/s a little longer and opt to rush ship them back.
Your rental item/s should be delivered to us by the 8th day. We allow for ONE grace day. If you are local – in some cases we will allow LOCAL PICKUP AND DROP OFF. Please be sure to email us your tracking number/information.
What happens if your late in return shipping? Should you suspect you may be late – it is best to email us right away. Unfortunately, rentals have very tight turn around times and thus when your package is returned late this sadly puts a strain on another renter. If your order is not received ON the 8th day – you are subject to our late fee penalties. Please see our terms for more details.

Rental Order Terms
PLEASE NOTE: A DRESS (1) DRESS is NOT to be reserved/booked and used for a multi-mini session event. Meaning please do NOT book (1) dress for multiple (5+) children to wear. Why is this so important? It is important because a rental is meant for 1-3 children. Any more than that would be considered a mini session/workshop rental booking. We always recommend booking more than (1) dress to help accommodate your clients. When renting only 1 dress for a multi book mini session you run the higher risk of incurring damage fees and possible restocking fees. Please email us should you have questions on this. We do offer discounts when booking rental for a multi mini session/ workshop. We want to help do our best to ensure you have a positive rental experience with us.
These terms are subject to change at anytime.
IT IS ALWAYS BEST TO EMAIL US PRIOR TO YOUR BOOKING SHOULD YOU NOT UNDERSTAND THE RENTAL PROCESS OR NEED CLARIFICATIONS.

YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR SHIPPING TO/FROM
(B+L) ships FEDEX GROUND on nearly ALL rental orders and occasionally USPS (depending on which method is most economical and appropriate for each order). Orders being shipped to Alaska will be shipped via USPS priority mail and are subject to an additional shipping cost.
If you have preferred shipping carrier please let us know before placing your order. Each package is carefully packaged when shipped. (B+L) will NOT be held responsible for an item after it ships. Insurance will cover any cost for lost packages or damage for an additional charge, but it is not included in our standard shipping charge & must be purchased at the time of placing your order. Once the package is shipped, (B+L) is not responsible for giving refunds or replacing packages due to late shipment drop off.
Please note: We do our absolute best to ensure that packages are shipped within a timely manner. It is extremely important that you do NOT reserve a start date (first day of rental – as your actual shoot date.) It is always best that your actual shoot date be set for the 2nd or 3rd day after your start date selected. We can NOT guarantee any ship time/date as Shipping is out of our control once the package has been sent out for shipping. We unfortunately can NOT control lost packages, delayed packages, late arrival times. B+L will NOT refund shipping fees, will NOT refund you any client cost losses, vendor cost lost, and will NOT refund any business expenses. Unfortunately – we can not bare responsibility for shipping companies. IF the package was lost, delayed etc due to B+L – we will be sure to reach out and rectify the situation to the best of our abilities.
Upon delivery, you the purchaser bear responsibility for the item(s). You acknowledge that you have provided B+L with a secure shipping address. A secure shipping address is considered to be one where an individual can physically receive item(s). Should you provide us with an un-secure shipping address, B+L does not bear liability for products left unattended, or collected by someone other than purchaser. You acknowledge that providing anything other than a secure shipping address may result in delivery delays and additional delivery fees and B+L will not be liable. You will be liable for all such delays, lost item(s) and additional delivery fees.
As stated above: You need to allow yourself time to receive your item BEFORE your actual event date. If you need a rush order- we do have options for an additional fee. B+L is NOT responsible for lost or stolen shipments. Once we have shipped an item we can not control how the shipment duration goes. Sadly there are times that the shipping carrier has delays on their end. Unfortunately those situations are out of control. We always do our best to help remedy the situation but we can not guarantee anything. That is why it is so important that you set your start date to NOT be the 1st day of your rental.
IF YOU ARE LOCAL-YOU CAN SCHEDULE A PICK UP via email. Upon return of your order you will be issued a refund for shipping fee. We ask that all rental orders be shipped FEDEX GROUND (if residing in Texas, Okla., or LA. -only takes 1 business day to arrive) OR PRIORITY USPS. FEDEX is the most reliable method for return shipping. It is only a few dollars more than USPS PRIORITY but is more guaranteed and easily trackible.
SHIPPING BACK TO US
We ask that you ship ALL item(s) back in a NEW –UNUSED-box of equal size/quality and MUST ship PRIORITY MAIL USPS, UPS OR FEDEX. Your rental item/s MUST be set to arrive by the last day of your rental duration (day 8 DUE BACK TO US, no later)

You are responsible for any LOST or STOLEN item(s). You are responsible for any damages occurred during shipment. Your item(s) should be shipped back to us in the manner you received your items(s).
Return of item(s) and Extensions:
You agree to return the item(s) to B+L on or before the return date for the item(s) which is identified on the invoice for your order. In some cases an extension is possible. For an extension please email email@example.com; provided that any extension provided is subject to other orders for that item(s) and is available only upon pre-payment of the additional Rental Fee applicable to that product for the period of time of the extension.
If you return the item(s) late or fail to return item(s) at all, a late fee of seventy dollars ($70.00) will be charged to the payment card you used to pay the Rental Fee or to any other payment system included in your account information; this includes PAYPAL.

The late fee is payable for each order of item(s) that is not returned when due, NOT towards each item(s) that is the subject of the order that is late.
Most importantly, if you have not returned the item(s) within fourteen (14) days after the return date for the item(s), this late return will be considered a non-return. B+L will then invoice/charge the maximum late fee set forth, less any late fees that you have already paid, plus applicable sales tax.
Payment of 200% Retail Value or Market Value.
Should you be charged an amount equal to 200% of the retail value or market value and you still possess the item(s), the item(s) are then considered yours to keep, though without any future refund, or return of any kind.
Use of B+L RENTAL ITEM(S)
In the OFF chance that there may be damages to any rental item(s) upon opening shipment- please report those immediately. We do our best to check all item(s) prior to shipping but there are on rare occurrences we may miss prior damages. Should damages be sustained through cutting open the shipment box- you bare responsibility for that. It is important to use caution if using scissors or box cutter.

REFRAIN from any drinks/food/body makeup, body makeup/spray tanning when using our item(s). PLEASE refrain from spray tanning day before or DAY OF event. Spray tanning solutions stain the satin of the bodice and can NOT be removed/cleaned. Body makeup is also prohibited when renting our item/s. Body make up also is very hard to clean/remove from the bodice. PLEASE DO NOT WEAR ITEM/S WHILE HAVING HAIR AND MAKEUP DONE. BEST SUGGESTION IS TO WEAR A BUTTON UP, A HOODIE, OR A MAKEUP CAPE during these times to help you from messing up hair/makeup.
REFRAIN from USE of our garments in or near water or mud or sharp objects (trees, rocks, concrete seats, snow etc)! PLEASE pick the garments up when walking on the sidewalk, walking around grease. Should you want to shoot our item/s on or near water/beaches, snow etc it is best to prop the child on a box, or use towels underneath to keep the garment from laying directly on the wet or muddy surface.
REFRAIN from excessive play (running, jumping) in order to prevent unpreventable rips and tears. Please watch small children – as some of our item/s have small delicate pieces that could be a choking hazard.
REFRAIN from IRONING OR STEAM machine use on our item(s). Should you need to remove wrinkles we recommend a professional steaming system OR hanging item(s) in a bathroom with hot shower running. By hanging the item(s) in a hot room-this will help allow the wrinkles to fall. We also suggest fluffing the item out, and letting hang 1 day prior to use.
REFRAIN from DRY CLEANING OR CLEANING.
- Please pick up the skirting if renting a dress. This helps to keep the underneath of the skirting from picking up any dirt/grease/grass stains etc. It is important to lift the skirt of the dress from the sides-or pick up from the floor and lift up to carry.
- Please be cautious of where and how you sit. We ask that you lift the garment off of the floor and try to tuck under your buttocks in most cases in order to keep the skirting safe from tearing on nails/hooks etc.
