Already many wedding businesses including bridal boutiques and retailers plus hair and make up artists and celebrants are seeing the benefits of this automated system. It frees up so much time and works perfectly for a smooth appointment process.
Alison Eldridge of multi-award winning bridal boutique Townhouse Bridal told us “After doing everything manually for a while, I had been looking at a better way of managing appointments and had tried a couple of different options but they didn’t seem like quite the right fit for my bridal boutique.
I have now been using Appointedd for approx. 4 years and I love it! The website and app are easy to use and I have been able to set it up exactly how I need. Customers can book appointments online, they receive an email confirmation as well as text and email reminders, all of which can be customised.
It has honestly saved me so much time and I believe creates a better experience for my brides. If there’s anything I can’t work out how to do, the live chat on the website gets me sorted quickly and without fuss. Would never go back to doing things manually now!”

Appointedd provides you with a streamlined solution for managing all your wedding business bookings. Secure appointments with redeemable deposits, you’ll get the insights you need prior to appointments, and customize your bookable services to meet your brand standards all with 24/7 support.

Brilliant customer experiences
You can add custom questions to your booking flow to empower couples to let you and your team know details like dress sizes, important dates, and more, all ahead of the appointment. You’ll be able to prepare more effectively and deliver an informed and tailored consultation for the benefit of the couple.
Anne Widdop Founder Director of Fuze Ceremonies says; “Customers love it, they are very positive. And having online booking prompts customers to book more quickly after they receive a quote. The team can manage their own diaries however they want. It was easy to implement in the head office. ”
Secure appointments with deposit
Appointedd integrates with a number of payment stystems that enable your business to take online payments as part of the booking process. You can easily connect your account with Stripe, Square, or Braintree to take a deposit for each booking.
Deposits can then be easily refunded at appointment or made redeemable against purchase. Your bookings become more reliable, and in the event of a last minute cancellation or no-show, your business doesn’t lose out. Now that is neat.
Communicate effortlessly with clients
Communication is key for your couples- from booking to consultations, fittings or trials and final collections or deliveries. Appointedd reduces communication friction to help you and your couples stay stress-free before the big day.
Making the customer experience smooooth
Each booking made through Appointedd automatically generates an email or SMS confirmation, reminder and follow-up. Use the communications suite to customize notifications with business information and cancellation policies, and send messages directly from bookings in your calendar.
Ensure your customers can enjoy the experience of shopping with family and friends when they book with Appointedd. Customize your booking tools to offer separate services or different price points for larger groups, or utilise booking questions to find out about who will attend in advance. Particularly useful with the current Covid ready procedures.
You can then easily prepare for appointments and allocate resources accordingly, from boutique/salon/studio space, to chairs and champagne glasses!
