ACCESSORIES: Are you interested in viewing or fitting accessories? *
GUESTS: Each bride is limited to one to two guests. Please let us know if one of your guest is a previous Cindy Bam bride/client. Name/Year:
TIME MANAGEMENT: We prepare ahead for your fitting and take every client very seriously. Therefore, time management is of utmost importance to us. Being on time will enable us to give you our undivided attention when you visit the studio. Should you run late, we will have to reschedule your fitting as we cannot cut into another client’s time and it will be an extra fitting cost to you. If you are early, we ask you kindly to grab a coffee nearby and come back on the exact time we booked your appointment. *
ONE-OF-A-KIND:  The dress and size you see online, is the only one available. We cannot guarantee that the dress you want to fit will still be available at your appointment, and we cannot reserve dresses for clients. *
HIRING: Please book your fitting appointment three months before your wedding. We cannot secure hiring dresses for longer than three months. *
ALTERATIONS: Remember that not all the dresses will fit perfectly. Some might be a bit too big or some too small. Alterations can be quoted for by booking an Alteration Appointment, or you can have it done closer to home. We cannot quote you on the day of your fitting appointment. Email to book an Alteration Appointment *
REFUND POLICY: Weekday appointment cancellations must be done 4 weeks in advance, or you will not be refunded. Rescheduling a weekday appointment can be accommodated once. After hour (16h00-18h00) weekday and weekend appointment cancellations or rescheduling, will not be refunded, since we close at 16h00 and must make special arrangements for the later appointments. *
WEIGHT LOSS OR GAIN: You don’t need to be your goal weight at your first consultation, but you must be when we take your measurements or start your alterations. Should you start with a diet to lose or gain weight, start to exercise, and build muscle while we are busy with your dress, you will be liable for all the extra alteration costs (labour, fabric, etc.) to do additional work that was not originally quoted for. *
We know that this is a very exciting time for you and that you may wish to share this experience with a large group of family and friends but too many opinions will be confusing when we are trying to focus on your requirements.  
You book time with us, to receive our expert advice and let us focus completely on you, your likes, your dislikes, body shape etc. You will try on a variety of dresses to get the style that suits your figure best.
You will have lots of fun, but it's important to note that it’s not a TV show, where you stand in a dress to get the opinion of your guests. We encourage you to let your potential guests know of your ideas for your gown before your consultation. Everyone has their own taste, style and will give you their opinion of what you should wear.
You will lose precious consultation time trying to convince your guests that you do not want lace or the opposite. We have had brides that did not take our advice and was in tears, confused and insecure because of all the opinions.
Remember that not all the dresses will fit perfectly. Some might be too big, some too small and you will stand on display in front of everyone there.
We also ask personal questions, like, what do you want to hide on your body or talk about tricks to get you looking slimmer, for example.

If you arrive by yourself or with one guest, it will be simpler to reach a clear understanding of your desires and to walk away perfectly happy.
Ask yourself whose opinions truly matters and bring that guest with you. We do have wi-fi, so skype or facetime is possible of your favourite gown to your family, should they be abroad.
Trust your gut and don’t stress, we will guide you through everything. Our studio is not pet or child-friendly due to delicate fabrics and exclusive gowns in the studio.

Taking photos of the dresses are not allowed, unless a dress has been purchased (please let your guests know). This is to protect the copy right of the designer’s work.
We have had clients taking photos and having the dress made elsewhere. Lighting and bad angles also often distort the gown therefore giving a false impression.
We are located close to Canal Walk Mall and not inside the mall. You can park in front of our studio.
Our studio address: Unit E7, 1st Floor, Century Square, Heron Crescent, Century City, Cape Town.
At boom gate, tell the security you are here to see Cindy Bam and ask for an available customer parking.
