We would be delighted to see you at our boutique in Winchester. New for Spring 2022 you can now book and pay for your appointments via our brilliant online system.
We hope you find it easy to use, but would love your feedback as well.
Should you have any questions do call the boutique, especially with regards to specific and tailored access needs.
Why do some bridal boutiques charge for appointments?
At Brides of Winchester, we have been offering free 90 minutes appointments since we opened a decade ago, but in January 2022, we decided that it was time to introduce an appointment fee. Since then we have been working to create the perfect system to make your life and our life easier.
Why? Well, bridal boutiques do not operate like other retail spaces, we hope brides are no longer popping in and out of 15 shops. Let’s also bring into the discussion you don’t tend to dip in and out of the changing room asking a very busy but disinterested store assistant if it’s okay to try on something in a bridal boutique.
At BOW you have exclusive use of the boutique, and we mean the WHOLE boutique. A gorgeous tranquil space just for just you and your group of friends and loved ones.
We provide luxurious refreshments and you have the undivided attention of a personal, experienced stylist. A stylist who gives you one-to-one attention and help to slip into and find the MOST IMPORTANT dress you will ever wear.
Our online booking system sends confirmations, reminders and to make sure it works with “real life” you can also cancel and rebook so long as you are in line with our cancellation and change policies.
We started this project with the hope brides make the time to cancel an appointment or let us know they no longer need it, sadly in the past many do not.
We can not begin to tell you how many times we have driven to work, opened the boutique, made it all nice and toasty, put on the coffee only for the appointment to result in a no show.
We appreciate the need to shop around; we know this is probably the most important dress that you will ever buy. But BOW is our passion, as well as our livelihood, so to remain independent, luxurious, a cut above the rest, and to allow us to continue to provide the service our brides adore – it was time to protect your time, and our time.
So, we hope you love our new system as much as we do, and with all the above said, we know you won’t mind protecting the exclusivity BOW provides each and everyone of our clients.
Love Laura and Tasha xx
