Hi, Liz here again with a few words on the boutique versus budget buying experience!
With so many options available to buy a wedding dress these days, the opportunity to be made to feel special and really well looked after is often missed out on.
There is something to be said for bridal outlets as they cater for brides on a budget. With more expense being laid out on weddings than ever, no one would blame you for trying to save a few pounds when looking for your perfect gown. Buying on the internet is also a cheaper option when money is tight.
BUT…….when you come into a boutique, the experience you get is a world away from both of these options. You will be welcomed into a world of privacy and comfort. And safe in the knowledge that you are with a sales team who know exactly how to help you. They will guide you every step of the way. From the moment you book your appointment to the moment you walk out of the door with your dress, you will be looked after with the very best customer care. You may even be offered a glass of the bubbly stuff!
The whole boutique experience is a completely different ball game to outlets and internet sales. You are our main priority and we want you to be happy from day one. We are not just selling a dress, we are selling an experience that you wont find anywhere else. There is no queuing for fitting rooms. There is no limit on how many dresses you can try and furthermore, we dont pack you off with the dress in a bag and shoo you out the door.
First of all your boutique experience will begin with you being given a private appointment which will last up to an hour and a half. You can bring a few friends/family or both with you. There is no limit to how many dresses you can try on. So, if you want to try every dress in the shop, you can! You will be helped to get in and out of each dress. Accessories can also be tried on when you have narrowed the choice down to 1 or 2 dresses. When you have found your dream dress, it will be kept until you want to pick it up. All of your fittings will be done in house and you wont be expected to find your own seamstress for alterations. Finally, we will even steam your dress just before you pick it up so it is in pristine condition.
This and a whole lot more is the difference between buying boutique and buying budget……
Now all you have to do is decide which experience is for you!!
Thats it from me for now.
See you soon
