We're Back! and We're Beautiful!

Whew! Boy, am I glad that is OVER! We are through our renovations and are back in business... the floors look amazing -- a dark cherry, hand carved look -- beautiful! The bottom floor is up and running for Bridal appointments as of today (only 5 days later than scheduled... lets not go there) while the upstairs still needs a little clean up -- one step at a time! We are happy to accomodate any needs at this point and look forward to seeing you all very soon! Thanks to those who had "tentative" appointments booked and have been patient and kind enough to reschedule... sometimes twice... you are dears! Can't wait to see you!

Also.... we have a new member of our family!! I will introduce her in a new post today or tomorrow... Her name is Stephanie and she is FABULOUS! More on her to come...

Love Love & Happy Wednesday!

Friday Update...

Sorry its been since Monday! Its been a whirlwind around here so thanks to all of you for being patient while we get through this renovation! So, the floor is being delivered today and installed Saturday and Sunday... we will put the store back together and open officially for business Tuesday, April 29th. For all of you who had appointments tomorrow, I am so sorry! I know we've talked already and gotten alternate appointments down, but it hurts my heart to turn anyone away! :) BUT... that is life, ladies! Roll with the punches, right?

OK, other than the floor, we have a new, softer wall color, new bathroom color.. new fitting room curtains, Fabulousness! Hope you will come soon to visit... a party is still on the horizon to celebrate! Right now we're looking at the 28th of May... its a Thursday night -- mark your calendars!! Lets celebrate!!

Hope you all have a great day and wonderful weekend -- we'll see you next week!!

oh, PS... if you're planning on visiting us next Friday or Saturday PLEASE call and make an appointment... having been closed for 2 weeks, we are booking solid for those two days! Can't wait to see you!

A Quick Update...

Hey Ladies!

Well, things are moving right along... today they took up the rest of the flooring and started repair on the drywall. They are working so dilligently to get us up and running quickly -- and YOU ready to shop as soon as possible! We are anticipating hitting our goal of Saturday re-opening but its only Monday! But... you know me, think positive!! Just thought I'd give you a quick update and let you know that all is well... All information below still applies... don't hesitate to contact us with anything you might need!

Just Think Positive!

Wow... what a mess! Arrival to the store this past Saturday morning was nothing short of shocking... and with a day full of appointments ahead! Our team worked quickly and called in the troops and they have been working ever since... we are so grateful to have such wonderful support around us!

So, here's the deal: We are not currently open for appointments or store traffic at all. We ARE, however, conducting business as usual otherwise in terms of communication, ordering, and the like (yes, there is much more to what we do than when you are in the store!!) even though it may be remotely. That said, please feel free to call the store and leave a message as the voice mail will be checked very often. If email is easier, it is being maintained as well. (I will post all contact information at end of post) Please don't hesitate to call on us if you have questions about anything at all! We are currently accepting appointments starting Saturday, April 26th and it is filling up already!

If you are a bride who has already shopped with us and needs to see the few gowns again BEFORE April 26, we are happy to bring a few gowns to you at an alternate location.... This will of course need to be coordinated a day or two ahead of time...

If you are a current bride wondering about products that you have either on order or that are currently at The Bride Room, we are happy to answer any questions or concerns that you might have. Know that any items that are at The Bride Room are in a secure, climate controlled place.

So.... now that logistics are out of the way, lets talk positive: we're getting a face lift! a fresh new start! That, ladies, is grounds for a party! (I'm always looking for an excuse!) We'll be putting together a little soiree to celebrate the fact that we are back up and running and looking fabulous so be on the look out for details to come... it will probably be the end of May... Cheers!

Here are communication details if you need anything at all!
