Love & Lace Bridal Boutique
Reopening During Phase One
Reopening During Phase One
Posted on Thursday May 14th 2020
I have given this MUCH consideration over the past few weeks and here will be out reopening rules effective this Saturday, May 16th.
Saturday, May 16th until June 1st (this can be extended based on how long “phase one” will be enforced)
Adjusted hours for the time being.
We will be open for appointments only on....
No hours on Sunday, Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday.
-BY APPOINTMENT ONLY. If you do not make an appointment on our website or call ahead you will not be able to try on dresses. The door will be locked until our appointment arrives.
-Please wash hands upon arrival
-One appointment at a time. I will not have my full team back for the time being so I can only see one bride at a time.
-No more than 3 people to a party (Bride plus two) Not negotiable for the time being
-If you want champagne, please bring your own cups. Our reusable ones will not be available.
-Off the rack purchase only for the remainder of 2020, the last thing I want is for orders to be placed and this stuff spikes again. Then I will be in a similar situation, stressed to the max, brides & Mom’s stressed and emailing to see if their dress will be delivered on time - me contacting my reps non stop and so on. Just not worth the stress right now. Dresses will need to be taken home the same day and paid in full. Keep this in mind for alterations since we will not be ordering anything with custom measurements or lengths.
-NO WALK INS - Please make an appointment online or call a head since we are working with limited staff and no more than one bride at a time. Again, the door will be locked. You will not be permitted in unless you have an appointment.
-Masks are essential for the bride, guests and staff.
-Only the bride and her stylist will be able to look though the dresses. Usually we let everyone look through, but for the time being just the bride and her stylist will be permitted to handle the gowns.
....and please if you are planning on just “browsing” plan it on a Thursday, we desperately need to recover from two months of being closed and Fridays and Saturdays need to be our “money making” time. Full disclosure, I’m in crisis mode and if I have any chance of continuing to keep my doors open past 2020, we need serious brides who are ready to take their dress home the same day. So respectfully, bring your supportive loved ones and leave the “Yea, but does she have to purchase today?” Friends behind :)
Finally, yes things will be sold at a small discount since you can only take samples home. The good news is, we received a lot of brand new stock right before the shut down so there’s basically a full rack of gowns that have yet to be even tried on.
I know this is a lot of change - trust me, I would like things to go back to “normal” to BUT I still want to do my part in flatting the curve and making sure myself, my family, my staff and my clients are as safe as possible. These adjustments are only temporary, but at this time I feel like they are necessary.
As always we thank you for understanding and being so awesome during all this mess.
