When it comes to buying your wedding dress, we know that ultimately it comes down to price. This is particularly relevant if you don’t have a bottomless pit of cash, which lets face it, is most of us!!
So we had a think about how our brides would shop for their dream wedding gown. We looked at the website from the perspective of a bride to be.
How could we make it easier to see what we had available in different price ranges?
So we came up with a few ideas and the end result was our new look front page on the website.
It gives a bride 3 clear price ranges for buying a dress of the peg. The sections are “Up to £499”, “£500 to £799” and “£800 to £999”. There is also a section for full price dresses which are “Available to Order”
These dresses in the 3 “off the Peg” sections are all at a reduced price and can be purchased straight away. The sizes in store in each dress is all we have available for you to purchase off the peg. (If the dress is still current, you can order it but it would be at the full price.) You have the option to leave the dress with us until your wedding or you can take it home on the day, its that simple.
So for example, if your budget is £600, you could look at the dresses in the “up to £499” and the “£500 to £799” sections on the page.
Buying off the peg is ideal if you dont have much time to plan your wedding, or you intend to lose some weight before the big day. May be you have had to bring the date forward for personal reasons and don’t have time to wait. Whatever the reason, Forget Me Not can help you find your dream dress in a hurry!!
If for example your budget is £1000, you could look in all 3 of the “Off the peg” sections. You could also take a look in our “Available to Order” section as the dresses in this section start at £945.
We offer an in-house alteration service too. All your fittings are done in store so you don’t have to worry about anything! We even steam and press your dress the day before you pick it up.
Lastly, our “Available to Order” section shows all the current dresses that you can order in a specific size and colour. The dresses in this section are all charged at the full retail price as they are brand new. Brand new dress orders can take up to 20 weeks to come in to store. If you are thinking about buying your dress brand new, give yourself plenty of time. Waiting for your dress to come in to store can be very stressful, especially if you leave it till the last minute. Again, we offer an in-house alteration service.
Remember, with Forget Me Not, you get the boutique experience whichever way you choose to purchase your dress.
Customer Service is always our top priority!!
See you all soon
Lots of Love
