I have debated posting this review because when I was at this shop earlier this week for my best friend's fitting I think I saw the perfect dress for me, and I know by posting this I am ruining my chances of ever trying on that dress.
I had a...
n appointment at this shop tomorrow, Saturday 1/9/22. I found out this afternoon that my coworker whom I work closely with tested positive for Covid. Despite the fact that I was so looking forward to my dress appointment, I called as soon as I heard to postpone my appointment to as soon as my governmental mandated quarantine ended (5 days with no symptoms). However, I was told that I would be charged $50 if I did not show up at the appointment. I asked "would you rather I come in as a possible covid carrier?" and they said there was nothing they could do...It was industry standard to charge the $50.
Now I called 2 other bridal shops after this conversation and was told by both that the $50 charge was indeed industry standard for cancellations for everything BUT COVID, especially when the bride was trying to make an immediate reschedule as I was trying to do. That was not what the Dani West manager told me their policy was at Dani West. She said that no matter what I have to pay $50 that will go towards my dress IF I chose to buy one...no pressure, right brides?
I will say that later the owner told me their policy was more akin to the industry standard. But that is NOT what I was told by the manager in more than one communication. SO even if that is their policy, most brides will not know that unless they kick and scream about SAFETY, like I did.
Also, I have to point out that despite Boulder County's mask mandate, they do not wear masks or encourage guests to do either.
Again, I hate that I am doing this and am dreaming of the dress that I wish I could try on, but now never will. If you give one iota about this pandemic, you do not want to go here. I would rather sabotage my wedding dress than let people in my community get exposed to covid. DO NOT GO HERE.
