Hey friends— in these uncertain times, I wanted to take a moment to assure you we are doing everything we can to ensure the health and safety of our guests and employees. While we are still currently maintaining usual business hours, safety is our top priority. . We also recognize that we’re in a moment that requires more flexibility in regards to scheduling appointments. . . . ⚪️We are taking every precaution possible, conducting extra cleanings of waiting areas and frequently touched surfaces. ⚪️If you’re not feeling well or are still recovering from an illness, we ask that you email or call to reschedule your appointment. You will not be charged a cancellation fee due to illness. ⚪️We are limiting guests to 2 maximum per client. If any of your guests have been exhibiting symptoms or are in an at-risk demographic, we ask that they stay home. ⚪️If you are unable make your appointment, but are in need of making a pressing decision our team can email, call or facetime/Skype to help aid you in your process. . . As of now, fortunately few of our supply chain materials are being impacted. However, we understand that this can change at any time, and ask for your patience and flexibility. We’re making sure that our production runs as smoothly as possible whilst prioritizing the health and safety of our seamstresses and staff who may have reduced availability in the near future. Rest assured that we will never leave anyone hanging without a dress for their wedding/event. We may eventually need to use alternate materials, and some creativity but that’s no curveball that we can’t handle. Stay kind to your fellow humans and try to exercise patience now that we are all feeling the collective stress and uncertainty. We’re all in this together. Please stay safe everyone. Wishing you love and good health. ♥️
