How did you feel before your first appointment to try on gowns?

I was quite anxious as I didn’t really know what I wanted.

On arriving at our boutique what were your initial thoughts?

Beautiful. There was so many sparkly dresses and the staff were just so lovely.

Did you have in mind the style and look you wanted from your gown?

I had no idea!

Did your consultation during your appointment help to find the perfect dress for you?

Absolutely! The questions helped me to think about what kind of dress I would like and the girls picked out 3 gorgeous dresses for me to try including my dress. They asked about the venue as well and all dresses they picked were suitable.

How did you find our service from start to finish?

Amazing! I really enjoyed the whole experience. The service was so personal and I felt so confident that my dress and bridesmaid’s dresses would be exactly what we wanted. As soon as I walked through the doors I felt so special. The girls speak to you like a friend as opposed to just another customer. The text’s and good luck messages on Facebook were a lovely touch.

How did you feel when you found your dream gown & what made you decide it was the one for you?

Quite overwhelmed! I loved how my dress was simple yet stunning. It had the little bit of sparkle I wanted without being too over the top which just isn’t me. I imagined how it would look in the venue and thought it was just perfect.

Where did you find the perfect accessories for your gown? Shoes, Veil, Hair accessories?

I chose not to have a veil but got my hairpiece from YAP. It matched my dress perfectly. I got my shoes from Kurt Geiger. They are not really a wedding shoe but were sparkly and something I could wear again.

How was your overall experience with Y.A.P Bridal Boutique?

The whole experience was just amazing. I was so pleased at how easy it was as I’d heard horror stories about poor customer service and dresses not arriving on time etc. Y.A.P are truly amazing at what they do from as soon as you walk through the door and till your day and beyond. It was one of the most enjoyable parts of the whole planning process. I can’t thank the girls enough for all their help.

How did you feel wearing your amazing gown on your wedding day?

I know I keep saying it but amazing. Everyone commented on how the dress suited me and I just felt great!

Where was your wedding held and what kind of day did you want?

It was held in 29 Private members club in Glasgow which has a kind of rustic feel to it. We wanted something with a vintage feel to it and just wanted everyone to enjoy our day as much as us! We tried to make it as personal as possible.

What colour scheme/ theme did you choose for your big day?

We went for red and ivory with a Vintage theme. The dresses were perfect for my bridesmaid’s and the colour just looked stunning.

Who did you choose as your photographer/ florist/ suppliers?

Jillian Clark Photography, Cherry Blossom Flowers, White Balloon Films, Special Day Cakes.
