And we have some beautiful freebies for our brides!

As you'll know from our Covid-19 guidance, all guests will be asked to wear PPE (personal protective equipment) during their appointments for a while after we reopen.

Although we don't know when we'll be able to lift the new restrictions, we want every bride who visits us in the meantime to have the most incredible appointment possible - and to feel absolutely beautiful, which can be awkward when you're wearing PPE!

That's why our Director of Retail, Holly, decided to work with one of our amazing designers to create some beautiful PPE which won't offset your bridal look.

"I imagined brides standing in front of our mirrors in medical masks, and struggling to picture themselves on their big day because of it," Holly says.  "I wanted to make sure brides feel comfortable and protected during their appointments, but I also wanted to make sure they can feel every bit as beautiful and special as they would without the mask."

Best of all, you'll get to keep your beautiful bridal mask after your appointment - which means that anytime you feel the need to wear PPE, whether meeting safely with friends and relatives or doing your weekly shop, you can feel a bit of the glamour you had during your bridal appointment!

Alyona, our incredible designer who worked to create these gorgeous masks for brides, is also truly passionate about making her brides feel amazing from start to finish.

"Doing something I love and being able to make others happy to is wonderful.  That's why I believe I'm in the right place at Elite Bridal."

You'll also see our whole Elite Bridal team greeting you in their own glamorous black and gold PPE, also designed by Alyona.  We want everyone who walks through our doors to feel comfortable and safe, so they concentrate on enjoying the Elite Bridal experience - both our beautiful brides and our wonderful staff.

Holly says: "I'm extremely excited to reopen our doors on Monday, and our number one priority is ensuring that brides receive the best Elite service possible while still following government guidelines.  We've been working extremely hard behind the scenes to perfect the new normal Elite Bridal experience!"
