Liability Disclaimer

At The Wedding Cheque we endeavour to keep our data accurate and up to date however we do not take any responsibility for the accuracy of the prices that we present.

 At The Wedding Cheque we try to display data in a helpful way for the sake of comparing prices, as such some of the prices displayed on our website are bespoke and may not be readily available on the websites of our suppliers or may be different upon enquiry. Nonetheless, users of our website can get an accurate quote for their wedding either through the contact form on each supplier's page or directly from their desired supplier. The Wedding Cheque therefore accepts no liabilities for any changes to the prices or services of the suppliers and we cannot attest to the accuracy of information provided by our suppliers and displayed on our website; this includes the prices from industries that only offer bespoke prices for weddings e.g. some florists. 

Where prices are displayed according to ‘style’, indicating the level of complexity or sophistication, we accept no liability for how our suppliers interpret and define these terms. This means that in some instances, what one supplier calls ‘luxury’ might be considered ‘basic’ or ‘simple’ by another, for example. Because we are working with indefinable and interpretable terms, we will accept no liabilities for discrepancies within these interpretations. 

The Wedding Cheque accepts no liability for the actions or lack thereof of any of the suppliers featured on this website. The Wedding Cheque does not endorse or guarantee 3rd party links or the suppliers featured on this website. The products and services offered by the suppliers are not products of The Wedding Cheque. Linking to a website or featuring their data does not constitute endorsement by The Wedding Cheque or any of its employees. Other websites which may be linked on this website are not bound by our privacy policy.

The views expressed on this website in the reviews are written by users of the website and do not reflect the opinions of The Wedding Cheque or any of our staff.

Privacy Policy

This privacy policy aims to give you information on how we collect and processes your personal data through your use of this website. It is important that you read this privacy policy together with our cookies policy (below) and any other policies we may provide on specific occasions when we are collecting or processing personal data about you so that you are fully aware of how and why we are using your data. This privacy policy supplements other notices and privacy policies and is not intended to override them. 

For users that register on our website, we store the personal information they provide in their user profile (full name, username, email address and a password), the products they add to their favourites lists and the bookings that they register, indefinitely so that they can access their account, see their favourite suppliers and their bookings records for as long as it takes them to plan their wedding and for reference following their wedding. This data is only accessible to staff at The Wedding Cheque and some anonymous data is stored by our security program in order to safeguard the website but it is not passed on to third parties for any marketing purposes. We acknowledge registration, the use of the 'add to favourites' function and the 'add supplier' function as the user's consent to retain this data. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information, favourites lists and bookings at any time (except they cannot change their email address). Website administrators can also see and edit this information. Users also have the option to fully delete their account and data without informing us by clicking the 'delete account' button on the 'edit profile' page in their account.


We keep contact form submissions for 1 year for customer service purposes but we do not use the information submitted through them for marketing purposes. We share only the necessary information with third parties who help us provide feedback to the questions asked in contact forms. For example, if a user wants to request a price or check the availability of a supplier, we may pass the user's form information to the relevant supplier.

Data Protection

We have taken strong security measures which we are regularly updating to make sure that your data is protected. The Wedding Cheque has an SSL certificate which means that all the data that is transferred between our website and users' browsers is encrypted. As well as this, The Wedding Cheque limits the number of login attempts made to our website each hour which stops individuals from using brute force attempts to enter accounts registered with us. The Wedding Cheque also randomly invalidates cookies, forcing account users to log back in manually; this decreases the chances of misuse of sessions that are left open on unprotected devices. We also use a firewall which examines traffic and prevents suspicious attempts to use our website, this greatly reduces the chances of cyber hackers accessing your data. 

In the event that your personal data is compromised, you will be contacted directly via the email address provided at registration, within 72 hours of discovering the breach.
