WELCOME TO THE PANTILES BRIDE
Our aim is to provide you with the very best selection of bridal gowns
from the UK & Europe’s leading bridal designers.
We are delighted to announce that The Pantiles Bride has a reopening plan.
The last few weeks have been spent pouring over government guidelines (and there are a lot of them!) and putting together our timeline for welcoming both existing brides and future brides into the boutique with safety being our number one priority.
We are getting ready to return to what we’ve been doing for 23 years which is helping brides find their perfect dress.
Here is our plan to get back into the boutique (government guidelines permitting):
Phase 1 – from now we are “sweating all the small & serious stuff” around risk assessments, cleaning protocols, revising the shop layout so we can safely socially distance and make our boutique meet the “COVID-secure” criteria.
Phase 2 – from 1 July we will take appointments for new brides to come to visit us and choose their gown. There will be a booking fee of £35 refundable upon purchase. Brides can bring two people – although we would prefer just your “Plus 1” wherever possible.
Phase 3 – from 8 July we will open our diary to our existing brides for collections, fittings, try-ons and styling appointments with Alexandra who will be working part time on a Wednesday and Thursday.
Prior to any booking being made we’ll contact you by phone and e-mail to talk you through our appointment protocols which have been designed to balance safety with a celebratory experience.
The “new normal” will be a bit different but behind all of the masks, gloves and hand sanitisers you will find the same dedicated team desperate to get back to what we love – finding and fitting your dream dress.
We know that we’ve got it right when we hear our brides say…
‘This is the best collection I have ever seen. Why didn’t we come here first?!’
