I know it’s starting to feel like Covid-19 will last forever. But I promise – it won’t. If your big day is coming up and you’re wondering how to plan for delays, Jan Carroll, owner of South Florida’s largest bridal boutique – Boca Raton Bridal, is here to fill you in on everything you need to know.
If you have any more questions regarding dress shopping during Coronavirus, please reach out to the amazing staff at Boca Raton Bridal. Their boutiques showcase the best designers available in bridal design today, including Galia Lahav, Mira Zwillinger, Martina Liana, and so many more. Their customer service is second to none in Florida and they are working incredibly hard during this time to ensure every single bride is taken care of.
Q: I ordered my dress right before the quarantine, what kind of delays should I expect for production?
Jan: Hooray for ordering! You will definitely have a dress. It is reasonable to expect some delays in current orders. From what we are seeing 2 months delay is the most to currently expect. That being said all of our designers are watching the wedding dates and those upcoming are getting priority. All of our designers are still operating, even if it’s limited capacity so there is no need to panic that you won’t get your gown in time! We have been assured by everyone that NO wedding will be missed.
Q: Am I still able to get alterations done right now?
Jan: We are still offering alterations, but at a very limited schedule. Both locations are able to see brides for alterations only on a case by case basis. Please know that you will be the only one in the salon at the time, you are allowed to bring a total of 2 people with you and we ask that you bring a mask. Both locations are being sanitized daily. We are here via phone or email at all times as both are being rolled over to us at home during the hours we are not in the stores.
Q: My wedding got postponed to 2021, what is the best way to store my dress until then?
Jan: Storing the gown is easier than you think. 2021 will be here before you know it and as long as the gown is kept in an air conditioned location it doesn’t require much else. We provide a breathable cloth bag for you so all you need is a little closet space away from pets, fiancés and water and you are good to go. We will be welcoming all of our brides back for alterations when the new wedding date arrives.
