Coronavirus - Measures In Place

The safety and comfort of our customers has always been a priority at New Beginnings Bridal, and this is even more so the case at this uncertain time. 

While every reasonable precaution will be taken, an inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any public place where people are present. By attending an appointment at New Beginnings Bridal, you are accepting that this is a close contact environment and voluntarily assume all risks related to exposure to COVID-19.

This does mean; however, that our appointments may look a little different for a while whilst we adhere to social distancing guidelines and protect everyone's safety.

Below, we have detailed the measure we have put in place:


Appointments Regulations

  • If you have any symptoms of Coronavirus, please do not attend your appointment and contact us to reschedule

  • Bridal appointments have been reduced from 2 hours to 1.5 hours to allow for extra cleaning between appointments:

    • All dresses tried on will be steamed inside and out between appointments

    • All accessories tried on will also be thoroughly steamed and/or wiped down

    • All surfaces will be wiped down with antibacterial wipes between appointments

  • Please arrive on time for your appointment. Please do not arrive early as we will not be able to let you in due to ongoing cleaning.

  • Appointments will be limited to the Bride and three guests

  • If you are shopping for bridesmaid dresses and have more than 3 bridesmaids, please contact us and we can discuss the appointment options

  • We have a tripod which you are welcome to use for video-calling the rest of your entourage who could not attend

  • Please avoid bringing children with you. If this is not possible, please contact us before your appointment.

  • The door will remain locked between appointments to prevent other people from entering the boutique

  • We can provide you with disposable face masks, gloves and footies for trying on shoes

  • We ask you not to touch any of the dresses on the rails until you have been provided with disposable gloves

During your Appointment

  • When entering the boutique, all guests and the consultant will be required to wash and/or sanitise their hands

  • All guests will be asked to remove their shoes to prevent tracking germs throughout the store. Disposable slippers will be provided

  • Each guest will be provided with a declaration statement to sign confirming that they do not have symptoms nor have been in contact with anyone with symptoms within the past 7 day, outlining the measures we have put in place and confirming that you accept any risk that may come from attending the appointment

  • The 2 metre social distancing guideline will be adhered to at all times where possible

  • When dressing the bride, the consultant will be wearing a face mask and gloves. We ask for our brides to do the same

  • The consultant will place the dress on the floor for the bride to step into and pull up

  • The dress can be fastened either by the consultant with the brides permission or by one of the brides guests with guidance from the consultant

  • When at the seating area, the bride will be able to remove her face mask. The sofas are 2 metres away from the pedestal.

  • We will be limiting the number of dresses that can be tried on to 6 per appointment. This is the average number per appointment prior to the Covid-19 pandemic anyway, so you shouldn't notice any difference.

  • If you are trying on bridesmaid dresses, only one bridesmaid can try on the dresses, unless both parties sign to state that they are happy to try on the same dress without it being steamed in between.

Other Measures

  • We have installed a paper towel dispenser in the bathroom, and removed fabric towels

  • Drinks will still be available from our drinks machine, but we ask that you make these yourselves for your safety

  • Cups available are paper or plastic and one use only

  • We have hand sanitiser available for use in store and also available for purchase

We Can't Wait To Welcome You To Our Boutique!
