Helping Brides take the "Stress Out of the Dress"
As in previous posts I say the #1 Tip I can offer Brides and other clients is proper planning. Using the information provided and getting your appointment scheduled in a timely manner can "Take the Stress Out of the Dress" as well as save you money!
My schedule is steadily booking a month in advance with the inability to take on Emergencies so Please....PLEASE...PLAN AHEAD. My schedule can be viewed 3 months out so you can check the Dress/Alterations off of your list! Please use this guide I have provided for you and if you have bridesmaids, mother-of-bride/groom, flower girl/ring-bearer, etc. needing alterations please make sure you book their appointment no later than the 4 week mark (or longer if garment has issues) before your wedding so that we have plenty of time to address all areas. Many thanks to you in advance for your business!
IN LINE WITH MY #1 TIP "PLAN AHEAD"...
and use this helpful guide to schedule your bridal consultation with peace of mind! Guide currently showing book by dates to help you schedule in a timely manner with respect to me booking 4 weeks ahead!
One last important thing you can see my schedule 3 months out! Don't worry you will get reminders and the schedule let's you reschedule/cancel your own appointment should you find you have a conflict as long as its greater than 48 hours ahead!
Needing an appointment?
Let me first say Thank you all for your referrals and loyalty! I am truly blessed and feel so appreciated of the service I provide!
With that being said....you will notice that I am booking 3-4 weeks in advance. For some this will be helpful to know that they need to secure their appointment NOW! For others, it may be disappointing. Please understand that while I would like to assist everyone in every situation my top priority is Quality on a first come, first serve.
I thank you for your support in understanding the importance of my #1 Tip: "Plan Ahead as there is one of me and many of you!"
So what do you do if you are in need of an appointment?
My scheduler is automatic/real-time so you may check it as often as you wish in the event someone reschedules/cancels their appointment with greater than 24 hours notice. Keep in mind this can happen anytime of the day or night. The system maintains itself so that I may provide timely work in the most efficient manner.
You may also schedule first available appointment (but not after event date). In booking form select "Need Emergency Service*" attach picture and details of what is needed on dress as well as check the LMWL box and I will contact you.
For your added convenience, you will see details in the "read more" section of the service you need to guide you so that you know whether I will be able to assist you in your current timeline.
Please note that acceptance for an emergency will depend on the work needed to the dress and there is no guarantee. LMWL is a last minute waiting list for any cancellations/reschedules with less than 24 hours notice of which you will be contacted by your preferred method with 1 hour to respond before offering next person on list the same opportunity. You will remain on list till you have accepted a LMWL slot or your current appointment comes up.
*Emergency fees will apply.
,What a Great Idea! I have to say it helps when I receive feedback!
I had someone mention to me about posting some sort of schedule to assist parents in scheduling for Prom alterations and I decided to also include one for my Brides. Please read below for additional hints and tips. And remember if you need assistance, just ask!
Should you be in need of a Saturday appointment please keep in mind that these are the first to book up!
Currently I am booking a week in advance but for Saturdays I am booking 2+ weeks in advance.
Since the scheduler is in automatic/real-time you can check it as often as you wish, in the event someone reschedules/cancels any time day or night you can move up your own appointment.
NEW FEATURE: When you schedule an appointment you have the added option to be on the “Last Minute Waiting List” (LMWL). This is for anyone who can be readily available by method they select with typically less than 12 hours notice and understands they must respond within 1 hour so that the next person on the list may be offered the opportunity. You will remain on list until your appointment comes up or you have accepted a LMWL appointment.
Appointments are available Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays Only! This is so I maintain my workflow/family balance and provide you with a timely delivery. My appointments are FREE and I will give you an Estimate at that time! Should you have a question please feel free to contact me by whichever method is most convenient for you. I will return all messages by the end of the next business day!
(HINT: FB messenger will get you a quicker response.)
