We have multiple wedding suppliers in each area. To prevent unnecessary receipt of communications from WeddingIdeas suppliers, you can set your enquiry to ‘Dormant’ when you no longer wish to receive further responses to your enquiry.

Any communications between suppliers, end users and WeddingIdeas.co.uk will be logged for monitoring purposes and to enable improvements to the WeddingIdeas.co.uk website, user log in area and supplier log in area to be made.

We may use your personal information to send you promotional information about third parties which we think you may find interesting. If you don’t wish to receive promotional information, you can tell us at any time by emailing team@weddingideas.co.uk

Payment by Credit Card / Debit Card and Payment over the Phone

Security and reliability were the two most important factors we considered when choosing an online payment system and taking payment over the phone.

It was even more important than competitive pricing because we needed to know our customers’ money and card details were safe, which is why we chose PayPal; the UK’s leading provider of secure online card payments.

Sensitive information is encrypted in transit using the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol. PayPal use the highest commercially available encryption key length of 128-bits provided by VeriSign.

We only use your financial information for processing your order. We do not store any financial information such as credit and debit card details.
