The world has changed dramatically over the last year, and our Covid-19 Company Policy below has been put together to ensure that you have a comfortable and safe wedding dress shopping experience with us. This is the ‘new normal’ for our boutique, and these measures will be in place for ALL appointments until further notice.
Whilst lockdown has been in place, we have been busy behind the scenes implementing the following safety measures:
We will have a hand sanitising station positioned within the boutique. Anyone entering the boutique will be invited to thoroughly sanitise their hands upon entering and encouraged to do the same throughout the appointment as required, and just before you leave.
You will be asked to wear a disposable face mask throughout your appointment- we will provide these upon arrival. Social distancing is not always possible, so this is a compulsory measure for all staff, the bride and her guest.
In order for us to follow and maintain social distancing within the boutique, we ask that you only bring one VIP guest with you to your appointment. Unfortunately there can be no exceptions to this for now.
You are welcome to use our complimentary WiFi and bring along your own devices to allow your wider bridal party to be with you ‘virtually’ via Facetime, WattsApp, Zoom etc.
After you have been welcomed into the boutique, we will ask your guest to take a seat and your Bridal Consultant will discuss with you your dress requirements and begin to select dresses for you to view. Only the Bridal Consultant will be handling the dresses to minimise contact.
The boutique will be cleaned and sanitised between each appointment and at the end of each day. Each wedding dress will be sanitised after it has been tried on. We are allowing additional time in between appointments for us to carry out cleansing and sanitising.
We will be adhering to the 1m+ social distancing rule as much as possible within the boutique.
We would kindly ask you to re-arrange your appointment if you or your VIP guest are feeling unwell. If you are displaying any of the COVID-19 symptoms we will be unable to run your appointment and will re-schedule for in a fortnights time.
We hope all these measures will help to protect us all and give you full confidence and comfort when shopping for your wedding dress with us. We continue to strive to create an individual, memorable and special experience at Chilham Bridal.
And very much look forward to seeing you soon and helping you find your dream wedding dress!
