Small Business Saturday is coming up on November 26, so we thought we’d share some of the biggest positives to shopping at a small bridal boutique over a chain store with multiple locations. As a local bridal boutique with a small team of stylists, K&B prides itself on our ability to get to know our brides while helping them find their dream dress. The one-on-one attention that shopping on Small Business Saturday can offer is simply unbeatable and an experience every bride should enjoy!
HAVE AN INTIMATE EXPERIENCE
Each of our brides enjoys the intimacy of their own bridal suite during their hour and a half-long appointment so that they can feel comfortable and at-ease during the process of finding their wedding gown. Our Be More in Love process allows each bride to cover all of the bases while looking for their dress by trying on all four of the basic wedding gown silhouettes (A-line, Sheath, Fit n’ Flare, and Ballgown) and narrowing down the style that they like the best throughout the appointment. The process helps our brides feel confident that they’ve gone through the right steps and know which style of dress they really want. This kind of intimate atmosphere comes only with visiting a smaller bridal boutique.
ENJOY THE PERSONAL ATTENTION OF YOUR OWN STYLIST
The relationship you have with your bridal stylist sets the tone for the entire bridal appointment and beyond. The closer you are with your stylist, the easier it will be to find the perfect dress for you out of the countless options in the store. During each of our appointments, our stylists work with brides and their entourages to get to know each bride’s personality, style, and priorities so that they can find the perfect dress. The relationship we have with our brides continues long after their first appointment and creates a unique and comfortable atmosphere for them to shop for their bridesmaids’ dresses, pick out tuxedos for their groomsmen, or complete their alterations to their wedding dress. Being a small shop lets us provide the personal touch to every bride that makes the process of finding their dress special and unique.
FEEL LIKE MORE THAN JUST A NUMBER
We’ve had many brides come to us feeling like their past shopping experiences left them feeling like a number rather than a bride with her own personality, priorities, and fashion sense. With a team of five stylists on hand to work with our brides, we approach each bridal appointment with only the bride in mind and see that each appointment should be a unique experience for the bride. The intimate atmosphere and close-knit team come with being a small boutique.
CHOOSE FROM A MANAGEABLE SELECTION OF DRESSES ON SMALL BUSINESS SATURDAY
While shops must have a wide selection of styles to choose from, too many options can work against you when you’re trying to narrow down your choices. Feeling like you’ve tried on all of the styles you could want to try, but ultimately finding the best style for you is the goal, and too many dresses can leave brides feeling more confused than when they walked through the door. K&B stylists walk through the racks with their brides and let them have a say in what they try on, and they wouldn’t be able to do that if there were a warehouse of dresses in the back. Even if it doesn’t sound like it, a bridal shop with a healthy amount of options, but not too many to possibly show brides, is a major plus for a bridal appointment. If you’re looking for a bridal shop that can give you personalized attention, intimate surroundings, and dedicated help from a stylist to help you find your dream dress, shopping small is the perfect solution. Book an appointment to visit us this Small Business Saturday, November 26, and catch our Black Friday Blowout Sale to hunt for a bargain on your gown.
