The government has now announced that it is time for independent businesses to reopen. That is right ladies it is time to reopen our stunning store! (Que our excited giggles)
We are incredibly lucky to have a larger store where we can implement measures to keep you all safe and restart your bridal journeys! We have rolled our sleeves up and are now making sure that the final preparations are underway to ensure that you not only have the most amazing memorable shopping experience but also whilst keeping you and our staff safe!
NEW POLICY’S & PROCEDURES In order to make sure that adhere to the governments guidelines and keep both our customers and staff safe we will be introducing the following new policies in store.
TEMPORARY NEW OPENING HOURS! We will be temporarily changing our opening hours to run by appointment only. We will be closed on Sunday and Mondays and open strictly by appointment only, Tuesday to Saturday.
APPOINTMENT ONLY SYSTEM To help us provide a safe and enjoyable experience for all parties, our store will be running by appointment only for the foreseeable future. No walk-in appointments will be accepted at this time as we will be managing the amount of people in store at any one time.
GUEST LIMIT To help us adhere to the government guidelines, we will be limiting the number of guests that you bring with you to your bridal appointment. You will be allowed to bring ideally 1, but 2 guests MAXIMUM. Please do not try and bring extra guests as any further guests will not be allowed in store. You are more than welcome to video conference call anyone unable to attend so that they can share your special ‘Say Yes’ moment with you. We are working hard to plan & manage in store customer numbers at any one time to ensure everyone adheres to our social distancing guidelines. We kindly ask that you do not bring anyone who falls into the high-risk category as outlined by the government into our store. Unfortunately, children will also not be permitted into store at this time. As mentioned, we are happy to help accommodate video calls so that no one misses out!
SAFETY FIRST Everyone in store – Staff, brides and guests will all be required to wear a face mask whilst in store. We have masks available to purchase for £1 each should you require one. Brides or guests that choose not to wear a mask will not be allowed to continue with the appointment and will be asked to reschedule. Hand sanitiser will be provided during your time with us. If you have any allergies please let us know in advance so that we can make alternative arrangements. All store equipment including tape measures, clips and pens will all be sanitised in between appointments. Gowns will also be re-steamed and treated. Appointment times will be staggered to ensure we adhere to social distancing. We will allow 30 minutes between appointments to clean and sanitize fitting rooms, seating areas and our entrance area.
WHEN YOU ARRIVE AT THE HQ Prior to entering the building, we ask that you kindly wait in your car and call the store informing us of your arrival. You may be asked to wait a few minutes to ensure that your fitting room is ready. Please arrive on time for your appointment. Not too early or too late as this could interfere with our social distancing management.
