David’s Bridal Taps Zoom for Digital Appointment Experiences

06/24/2020

David's Bridal is adding video services to its digital customer experiences, helping brides social distance while planning for their big day.

With the retailer’s Virtual Appointment Experience, consumers can schedule an appointment with a store stylist on David’s website. They’ll complete a style profile and “Vision Board” to personalize services, and associates use Zoom to show dresses, color swatches, provide styling advice, review accessories and more.

While most of the company’s stores have re-opened after temporarily closing to help slow the spread of COVID-19, the service intends to help families and friends still gather in groups, and the Zoom link can be shared with family or bridal party members to join in the appointment.
