We hope that your shopping experiance with us is always amazing! So below are the answers to some common shippping and returns questions we get. If you cant find what you are lloking for in here please feel free to drop us a line on and will get right back to you. 


Can I order samples?

Decisions, Decisions. Do I get the red gumball machine or the white one? We know that with so much fun stuff to pick from, picking what item to buy can be a problem you face!! Here at The Happy Wedding Company we are happy to offer samples. There are two ways of doing this.

1) You can order a sample by selecting the quantity ‘1’ and proceeding to checkout. You will be charged the price of the product plus shipping costs.

2) Contact us on or go through the ‘make my wedding unique’ link on the site and we can contact you to discuss the products you need.

You can also hit the order a sample button on all our stationery items. 

What are your delivery charges?

Delievry charges are a tricky thing for on-line sellers. So we have come up with what we think is a fair way of offering delivery to our customers. We offer 3 options for delivery. 

  • Standard Royal Mail - This means we will put your items in the post using a second class postage as a result there is minimal insurance and the item can take up to 4 working days to deliver. This option is great for lower value items and for people not in a rush
  • Courier Delivery Service - This means we will send your items through our courier service who guarentee next working day delivery once the item has been dispatched and the items safetey. This option is great for people in a bit more of a rush and whoes items cost a bit more. 
  • Express Delivery - This option is for all those last minute things that have to be there within 14 days. Our Express delivery service will guarentee delivery of any item within 14 days of the order being placed. This option is a little more pricey but should be selecetd by those of you in a rush for the special day. 

To keep things fair we have tiered our delivery charges based on the value of your order. Its a bit annoying when your delivery charges are more then the cost of the items you are buying so we have made sure that that is never the case with us. You can review our pricing tiers below. The best part is any oders over £100 enjoy completely free delivery!!
