OUR NEW NORMAL – STAYING SAFE WITH COVID 19
Current waiting list: We are Re-Opening our bookings from 01st July 2020 and currently experiencing very high demand.
We have introduced a small booking fee of £20 for Weekend and Thursday Evening Bridal appointments, This includes 90 mins of Private time in the Boutique, Refreshments for you and your guests (regulations permitting) & our full guidance & expertise to help you find your dream dress.
This is redeemable for a fabulous credit of £50.00 towards any wedding dress purchase made at THAT appointment.
We require 48 hour notice for a cancellation or change of appointment.
This is simply to limit no show & cancellation appointments at a time when we are very busy and have a long waiting list, It also allows us some peace of mind, with all the extra health & safety restrictions and cleaning processes in place.
There will be no booking fee for mid-week appointments.
The day of your Appointment..
The maximum amount of guests is 2 plus the bride – If you turn up with more guests unfortunately we will not be able to admit them due to social distancing regulations.
We have installed a selfie station and monitor system to enable your bride tribe to be with you during your appointment. We know how much it means to you to have your closest family and friends with you during your appointment – so we are hoping this goes a little way to making it feel that they are. Make sure they have their tissues at the ready!.
Our diary has been meticulously worked so that no one arrives at the same time and we have time to clean the boutique, Please make sure you arrive on time. Your appointment is 90mins and although you will not be on a stopwatch, our busy schedule means that we cannot always afford the luxury of running over time..
When you arrive at the Boutique we ask that you & your guests come wearing your own face masks, if you do not have these they will be supplied, We ask that you arrive on time for your appointment & wait outside the Boutique before being invited in.
We will take both yours and your guest’s temperature at the door using a very quick infrared, non-contact device. Should you or your guest have an elevated temperature above 37.4, your appointment will have to be rescheduled.
We will please insist that you and your guests use the hand sanitiser provided upon entry into the boutique.
All members of staff will be wearing, masks, gloves & visors where required, they will also have their temperatures taken each morning before work.

As always, We will begin with a chat to gain an insight into your style, wants and needs, We will then be able to select the gowns that you wish to try on.
We ask that your guests do not touch any of the gowns and limit touching any surfaces, they just need to sit back and relax.
By entering the boutique you & your guests do so entirely at your own risk!
