For those traveling to NJ: In an effort to follow state guidelines and keep everyone safe, please check the quarantine list to see if your state is on the restricted list. If not, the state of NJ asks you to quarantine for 14 days once arriving in NJ. Alternatively, you can take a COVID test when you arrive and bring in the negative results with you to your appointment. Thank you for understanding.
Guest Maximums: On Saturdays and Sundays, you are permitted to bring 3 adult guests with you. On Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays, you are permitted to bring 4 adult guests with you. Feel free to include additional guests virtually over Zoom, FaceTime, etc. We recommend that elderly guests attend virtually and that children under 12 are not brought to the appointment. All other appointments (including alterations, try-ons, and accessory) have a 2 guest maximum at all times.
Masks: All brides, guests, and employees are required to wear a mask – there are no exceptions. If anyone is not comfortable wearing a mask, we ask that they you include them virtually over FaceTime or Zoom.
Fitting Room Guidelines: To minimize exposure in closed spaces, we will be requiring one of your guests to assist you in the fitting room. Your stylist will be with you throughout your appointment and will make the necessary adjustments to your gown upon your exit of the fitting room. The stylist will continue to practice social distancing while you are in your dress.
Dress Try-On Maximum: Due to the fact that each gown must be steamed after trying on (as recommended by industry experts to minimize the spread of COVID-19 on fabric), we ask that each bride try on a maximum of 10 gowns during your appointment. When selecting gowns with your stylist, please be sure you are choosing dresses as close as possible to your budget and style.
Upon Your Arrival: Please call us and let us know when you arrive prior to entering. If your bridal suite is ready, we will invite you in. If not, we will call you and let you know when we are ready for you to come in. If you arrive early you will not be permitted to wait inside of the store due to occupancy limits. Upon entering, please make sure your mask is on and visit the hand sanitizing station.
Other Shop Protocols:
- We ask that your guests stay in your private family viewing area, as only our stylists will be permitted to handle bridal gowns.
- It is important that your appointment ends after exactly 1 hour and 15 minutes to allow us time between appointments to sanitize and disinfect the fitting room and family viewing area for the next bride. Therefore, please be sure to arrive on time for your appointment. If you are not on time we cannot extend your appointment.
- If you or any of your guests are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms or have potentially been exposed to COVID-19, we kindly ask you to reschedule your appointment or ask said guests to stay home.
- We reserve the right to make any updates to these protocols as we see fit. We will try our best to keep you informed.
We truly appreciate your cooperation and understanding during this time
as we work to keep everyone safe and healthy. We look forward to seeing you!
