What exactly is a ‘Virtual Appointment’?

Since you can’t come to us, we’re bringing the appointment to YOU. A Virtual Appointment can be scheduled on our website; by phone, or by email with one of our stylists for bridal gowns. Click here to visit our Contact Page.

During your appointment your stylist will guide you through the collection of dresses; going over your favourites, relaying info, discussing fit ETC – all at no charge. During this consultation you can select a maximum of 5 dresses, these 5 dresses can be added to your profile for a future in store appointment or you can try them on during an At-Home Try-On Appointment.

How does the ‘At-Home Try-On Service’ work?

The At-Home Try-On Service is completely optional. If you opt for this service we will arrange a curbside pick-up of your favourite dresses, plus all the tools you’ll need to help you envision the best possible fit of your dresses.

If needed you can also arrange for courier delivery and pick-up of your dresses (fees will vary depending on your location).

During your At-Home Try-On party we highly encourage you to book a Virtual Appointment with your stylist. They can give tips to help ensure the best fit and also answer any questions you have about each dress.

Let’s talk money honey!

There are fees to take note of:

A Virtual Appointment is completely free!

An At-Home Appointment will come with a security deposit of $150 (before taxes) per dress; a maximum of $750 (before taxes). This amount will be held on your credit card while the dresses remain out of the store.

  • if a dress is purchased, the entire deposit amount will go towards your purchase

  • if a second round of dresses are requested, the initial set must be dropped off/sent back to S+B before receiving your second set. Your second Try-On fee will be 50% off

Who, What, Where, When?

Virtual Appointments are available for all brides regardless of your wedding date. The At-Home Try-On Service is highly recommend it if your wedding is less than 10 months away.

This service is great for made-to-order and off-the-rack gowns alike. Your stylist will discuss which option may be right for you.
