A Sneak Peek into the Magic of
Your Bridal Appointment!
We are so excited to be welcoming you to our little slice of bridal heaven! Please read the following carefully to prepare for your time at Love Story:
~ It is SO important that you bring the right people with you to your appointment – I cannot stress this enough! So many brides bring too many people or not the right people. Lots find ‘The One’ when they ‘just nipped in to get an idea’ and then are gutted when that special person isn’t there to share that ‘I Found My Dress’ moment that you can’t get back.
~ The bride may bring 2-3 guests. Two guests is preferable but more is also fine so long as too many opinions won’t confuse you. Brides tend to get overly stressed with too many guests despite what certain TV shows lead you to believe!
~ Feel free to set up Zoom/Facetime etc. (Please have this set up prior to your appt to save time)
Things To Consider
Preparing For Your Appointment
~ Please do not arrive early (or late) to your appointment. This is to avoid interrupting the bride before/after yourself. If you are early and a bride is still in her appointment, please wait until your time slot before entering.
~ All brides will receive one of our infamous goody bags when they place an order, stuffed with supplier discounts and goodies plus a complimentary ‘Styling Appointment’ in our gorgeous new Styling Suite!
~ Our gowns range from size 0 – 20 and are priced from £695 for the shorter tea-length gowns and sample dresses, with nothing over £2,500.
~ It’s also a really good idea to have ‘The Budget Chat’ prior to your appointment so that we can avoid putting the bride in something she falls in love with but cannot have. Nobody wants that! More information on our prices is further down this menu…
~ A 50% deposit is required to order any gown with payment plans available for those with more time.
~ Another handy thing to know is that alterations are not included in the price of the gown but typically don’t go over £250 – £350. We can discuss this with you at your appointment.
A Little Heads Up
What’s Crucial for Your
~ Please remember that gowns can take up to 6-9months to be made from the time of ordering and massively influence the rest of your planning.
We must ask that if you cannot attend your appt for any reason, that you let us know at least 24-48hrs prior to your appt so that we can staff accordingly and offer the slot to another customer that may need it as we usually have long cancellation lists.
Please avoid booking in for the time being if you’re ‘just wanting to get an idea’ to ensure brides with shorter lead dates are able to book in.
