It's Wednesday, early evening two weeks after Thanksgiving. The bridal salon has been open for a week and a half. The first day opening went pretty well. Of course, because it's a new business, it's the flow of customers is slow, but there are customers trickling in. While Dani, Bailey and Felice will not always work together, they are all working today. The salon will be open a little longer, but Dani will need to leave soon, so Bailey and Felice will close the salon and lock up.
Felice and Bailey are each helping customers.
Customer's Friend: I think it looks pretty old. Maybe like your grandmother would have worn.
Felice: It is traditional, not modern. You said that is the look you are going for and you look lovely. The important question is, does this look how you envisioned it when you selected it from the rack?
Customer: Yes, I think it's pretty.
Customer's Friend: Well, if that's the look, you hit it on the head. You look nice, but maybe you could try something that shows a little skin. Those shoulders are a little puffy.
Customer: Says the girl in the blouse with the big collar.
Customer's Friend: This is for work, not the biggest day of my life. But it's your day, so you should be happy in whatever you choose.
Felice: Definitely. Take your time. Look at yourself from all sides. This is a big decision.
Customer: I'm going out of town to be in a wedding, but the pantyhose I'd like I can't seem to find at another store. I'm going to need shoes too. Something simple, but I'm not so sure what I want. I'm still waiting for the bride to actually pick something. I just want to see options first.
Bailey: If the bride sends you some photos, you can come back and we'll see how we can find what you need.
Customer: Can I see that brand in another color, please? Do you have black in that one? Maybe a size medium. Certainly. I'll just look in our stock drawer.
Customer: I think I like it the way it is. I may try on another, but this one is in the running. I feel like it's just a little loose though.
Felice: We can fix that. The right accessories can change the look and the veil will really add something special to your ensemble.
Customer: Can we see where we might need to make changes?
Felice: Yes, we can.
Customer: I'd like to try on another dress, but I know I want to buy something here. Can we check to see how much would need to be done?
Dani: I'll get some measurement forms for Felice. She knows how to measure, so she'll be able to check fit and answer your questions.
Dani heads to the desk to get the forms for Felice.
Customer (to Bailey): I like that color. That may work, but I will need to be sure first.
Bailey: That makes sense. There's no need to get something that won't work for you.
Customer's Friend: I think you should sleep on it. If it's still speaking to you, then get it.
Felice: I can hold it for you for a few days. Would you like to make an appointment to return. I'll take measurements right now so that's we'll already have that and then you can either pick something else or say this is definitely the one.
Customer: I'd like to try that other one on you took to the fitting room for me. But please do hold this one.
Customer's Friend: I like the other one. I do want to see how you look in it. Go ahead and put it on.
Dani: Hi, Honey. Yes, I just need to change. Is that what you're wearing?
Zavier: Yes. You don't like it?
Dani: Well, we're taking photos for the holidays, so I thought you'd wear something more festive. That's all.
Zavier: I don't think I have anything more festive.
Dani: Something in holiday colors would have worked. But if that's what you want to wear, it's okay.
Zavier: I think it's fine. Besides, I don't have time to go back home and change or we'll miss the appointment.
Dani: Okay. Well, let me give these forms to Felice. I'll tell her I'm about to leave. I'll run to the back and change and grab my stuff and then we can go. I just need 10 minutes, okay?
Zavier: Okay. I'll have a seat and wait.
Dani: Okay. So, I'm about to go change and then get out of here. Call me on my cell if you need anything, but I know you and Bailey have this covered. Have a good night and be sure you both leave at the same time. I want you to be safe.
Felice: Absolutely. Enjoy your evening and don't worry about us. Bailey works tomorrow and I don't, so I'll see you Friday.
Dani: Thank you for your help. Enjoy your day off and I'll see you Friday.
Dani changes and then heads out with Zavier to the photo appointment. Bailey and Felice handle business at the salon until they close.
