Are the cake toppers heavy?TOP No - not at all. The bases are all made from a lightweight polymer and are hollow. All of the designs incorporate a small amount of seashells that weigh very little.
Are all of the designs in stock?TOP For the most part, every design you see is in stock and generally ship within 5-7 days, which means you will get your order within two weeks of ordering. I generally will state what shipping time is running on my home page.
Will you custom make your items to match my wedding color scheme?TOP Absolutely! There is an up-charge of 10% of the cost of the item. We are running about 2-3 weeks on custom orders.
How are returns handled?TOP Due to the nature of the business, All sales are final unless there is a damage to an item. Customer pays for return of item and I will reimburse for shipping expense after item is replaced and customer is completely satisfied.
If a return is accepted for any other reason, customer is responsible for shipping charges, credit card fees and re-stocking charge of $10.00.
May I exchange?TOP Yes, if you change your mind and decide you made the wrong decision and want to exchange (as an example) one topper for another, we will be more than happy to do that. Customer pays shipping expense.
I received my Topper and it looks slightly different than the picture.TOP Yes, there will be some slight variance in the product you receive. Each item is handmade.No two toppers are identical. And since they are made from real seashells and not manufactured from plastic they are a product of mother nature and may have some natural flaws. We believe that this adds to the natural beauty of these items and makes them truly "unique". Cracks and discolorations are natural in mother nature's color palette and her creations. A real break or flaw will be obvious. We pack these items with great care and love and have had few damages over the years.
