Covid-19 Updated Policies and Procedures

Covid-19 Updated Appointment Policies and Procedures

The following Covid-19 updated policies and procedures should be read in conjunction with my general policies and procedures. You can find my general policies and procedures, alongside my privacy policy and other legal notices by clicking here.

Thank you for considering a visit to Lucky Sixpence Bridal.

Updated 1/5/21

In line with government guidelines, there are currently several extra precautions that need to be followed during appointments.  These will be in place until restrictions change, and are current until at least 17th May 2021.  While they may seem restrictive, they are in place to protect us all, and they are currently law, so please ensure you follow them when attending your appointment.  

Many thanks for your understanding.

Luckily, the footfall through Lucky Sixpence Bridal is very low in comparison to a high street store, which makes social distancing easier to manage.  I also limit the number of appointments I book each week, thus reducing the number of people who attend the premises. This ensures that I keep us all as safe as possible.

What you need to know – before your appointment:

As before, I will operate on an appointment only basis

Anyone with (or who has had close contact with someone who has) Covid-19 symptoms should postpone their appointment in line with government self-isolation rules. Any visitor appearing to be unwell or displaying symptoms will be asked to leave for their own safety as well as others.

Appointment length will remain at 90 minutes.  

Any dresses or accessories tried on and all surfaces and touch points will be thoroughly cleaned between appointments.

To adhere with social distancing rules, numbers will be limited to the bride plus ONE ADULT guest only for each appointment. At present, mixing outside households or support bubbles is not allowed, so any guest should be from your own household or support bubblePlease note, no exception will be made to this and no additional guests, babies, or children will be admitted.

Please only book an in-person appointment if you are ready to purchase your gown to reduce the number of visits to the premises.

What you need to know – during your appointment:

If you have the NHS test and trace app you can register your arrival using the displayed QR code.

Hand sanitiser will be provided. You are kindly asked to use it on arrival and before leaving, as well as throughout the appointment as you wish.

Unfortunately, no drinks will be offered at this time, but you are very welcome to bring your own in a non-spill container/bottle. Also, except for exceptional circumstances, the toilet will remain closed, as it is located inside my home.

Unless exempt, face coverings will need to be worn by all, including me, throughout your appointment.  I have some disposable face masks available for you to use if required.  Please take this with you at the end of your appointment and dispose of it at home.  All of my gowns are sanitised between appointments, therefore, gloves do not need to be worn. You are welcome to bring/wear your own if you wish.

If possible, please ask your guest to help you into dresses.  If they are unable to help you then I will assist you.  Time in the fitting room will be kept as short as possible to help limit close contact. I will be standing behind you the whole time. Please remain facing forward while I am helping you. I will socially distance myself from you as much as possible throughout the rest of your appointment.

Your guest will be asked to remain seated when they are not helping you into a dress. This enables easier movement around the building. It is also appreciated if you only touch the items that you wish to try on, and ask your guest to do the same. Thank you.

I understand that these guidelines seem quite strict. Please don’t worry that your appointment won’t be as special as you hoped.  I will do my absolute best to ensure your experience here, at Lucky Sixpence Bridal, is as perfect as it can be.

If you have any questions, please email me at

Many thanks, and I look forward to helping you find your dream dress!
