Shopping for your wedding dress during COVID-19
We are aware that some of these changes will not be how you imagined shopping for your wedding dress, but we promise we will make your appointment as normal as we can, our main focus is always to give you our best service and a enjoyable experience in our store.
We will be opening strictly by appointment only with a limited number of appointments available each day.
We will also be operating a locked door policy, this will enable us to manage visitors and number of guests in store, it will also ensure that we have the time we require between appointments to carry out cleaning of the shop and dresses.
For New Brides :
Guest numbers will be strictly limited to Bride + 1 guest.
We know this is not how you imagined wedding dress shopping to be, but you can bring your girls with you virtually : we have installed technology in store to enable video group chats.
Due to the strictly limited appointments we are able to offer and new measure in place, we are introducing an appointment fee of £25 payable by card to confirm your appointment to discourage either “no show” or cancellation under 24 hours.
Existing Brides :
Guest numbers will be strictly limited to Bride +1 guest.
For your fittings we do ask that again you bring only 1 guest with you, again we can offer you the chance to video call anyone that is not able to attend.
We understand that you may have several bridesmaids in your party, but for the time being we will only be able to see them 2 at a time, so either bride + 1 maid, or 2 maids ( maximum of 2 individuals in store)
