I was so excited! The shop had been recommended to me by so many people so I couldn’t wait.
The boutique is breath-taking as soon as you walk through the door! Joanne and all the girls are so friendly and instantly make you feel like they’ve known you for years.
I had in mind something quite simple, fitted and maybes with a little bit of a fishtail... How wrong I was!
It definitely did, none of the previous shops I had visited did a thorough consultation like the service you get at YAP. Sitting down and talking through your ideas, budget and wedding day with the girls doesn’t just help with finding the perfect dress~ but makes you feel amazingly special too!
Incredible! All of the girls work so hard, the service received at YAP from the moment I walked through the door… till my actual wedding day when I received a ‘good luck’ text from Jo, Danni and the girls on the morning was first class.
I had tried on about 6 dresses that we had picked out whilst looking around the boutique. But it was actually Louise who did my consultation suggested that I tried THEE dress on… As soon as I saw it I knew it was ‘the one’. I felt the most incredible I have ever felt in my whole life! I had butterflies and tears filling my eyes as twirled around the boutique in my dream dress.
My full length cathedral veil and hair accessories were both bought from the boutique. My shoes were Carvella from John Lewis.
My overall YAP experience was just beyond expectations. I am just slightly gutted I never got to have any of my dress fittings in the new boutique. But as soon as any of my friends get married, I’ll 100% be recommending them to YAP so I can have a little visit!
How did you feel wearing your amazing gown on your wedding day? It was just unreal how amazing I felt in my dress with my hair done and makeup done… the full works! And I could tell by the look on Neil’s face when I met him at the top of the aisle he definitely approved. I still get complimented on how fab my dress looked and will treasure it forever.
Where was your wedding held and what kind of day did you want? We had our wedding at Newton Hall, we wanted a relaxed day and just a massive party with all our family and friends.
What colour scheme/ theme did you choose for your big day?
We chose a neutral/pastel summer theme which really suited the venue.
