The Bridal Elegance Experience

New Appointment Guidelines & More

Dear Friends,

We are happy to announce that weddings are happening regardless of the new rules & regulations.  We’ve had hundred of postponements as well as “We’ve moved up the date!”   There’s just no stopping love!  Thank God for that!

Of course, we have had to make some changes here as well.   New Appointment Guidelines and even New Store Hours.     The following hours go into effect after Christmas   Monday & Thursday 10-8, Tuesday, Friday & Saturday 10-5, Wednesday 10-7 and Sundays through April 3d 12-5.

Bridal appointments are available with limited appointments per day as well as guests.  The bride is welcome to invite 2 guests to her appointment.   The state guidelines mandate not only our overall capacity, but our dressing rooms and viewing area.  This does not look like it’s going to change over the course of 2021.

In order to preserve your health and safety as well as ours and our other brides/guests, we are no longer able to accommodate large groups at a Bridal Appointment.   We encourage you to Facetime/Video Chat with your other family & friends that could not be here.

We’ve added a “Try My Dress On” shortened bridal appointment for you to share your dress with someone at a later date & time.   This gives you the chance for some personal time to spend with a guest and  an opportunity for your guest to fuss over you a bit.

We’ve also added a “Bridesmaid Shopping” appointment for the bride and 3 girls at a time.   It is helpful to schedule this appointment over the phone so we can review dressing room and consultant availability.

The end to this Pandemic is within our reach if we all keep vigilant.  Soon we will all be able to celebrate weddings and other cherished events together !    In the meantime, stay healthy and stay positive!
