Ever wonder what happens after you pick your perfect gown? Read on for a full breakdown of what your post-say-yes process looks like at Ever After!
So let's say you just had the most incredible experience at your bridal appointment, and found the dress of your dreams. What comes next? Typically what you will experience at every bridal shop is a variation of the same type of process, but here at Ever After we like to go above and beyond to make our new brides have the most memorable experience possible!
STEP ONE: Measurements
--> Typically the first thing we will do after you choose a dress, is take your measurements to assure we order a size that is as close to perfect as possible for you. (Keep in mind that in most cases, measurements include bust, waist, hips, and occasionally hollow to hem. This means that although the dress will be your closest size, you will still need basic alterations on the dress that are not specific to those measurements. These usually include straps, cup size/type, hem, and bustle).
STEP TWO: Packages
--> At Ever After we like to offer 3 levels of bridal packages to go with the dress you've chosen. We refer to these as Glitter, Sparkle, and Shine. They vary in price going up by levels, and include things such as steaming, garment bag, bride hangers, personalized hangers, gown storage, and even gown preservation.
STEP THREE: Contract & Payment
--> Once you decide what package is going to fit best for you, we can move onto finishing up your paperwork and completing the transaction. What you'll see on our contracts are a place to sign off on your measurements, your individual payment plan, and your acknowledgment of our no refund/return policy. We do offer a various array of budget-friendly payment options, and tend to be pretty flexible from bride to bride. The only thing we do require as a store-wide standard is 50% of the dress down to place the order!
STEP FOUR: Goodie Bag & 'Say Yes' Pic!
--> After paperwork is done, now comes the fun part! We love giving our brides a little goodie bad that includes a few fun items, including an Ever After Bride t-shirt! Last but not least, we take your 'Say Yes' pic in front of our flower wall, to remember your special day with you and your bridal party.
