Very nervous! I did not know what to expect or if I would find any gowns I liked - never mind ‘the one’
Absolutely gorgeous! This was the third boutique I had visited and it outshone the others by a mile! Lovely relaxed atmosphere and the girls were very welcoming.
Before my very first appointment which was at another boutique, I thought I knew exactly what I wanted - which was a sweetheart neckline, a bit of bling on the bodice, corset fastening and princess style, but not too big. After trying on quite a few gowns I realised that I actually had no idea and fell in love with a completely different style of dress! I ended up loving lace and no longer liked sweetheart neckline, but still could not find the one so went on to Y.A.P to find it!
This was great as I explained to Danni about my experiences at other boutiques and the styles of dresses that I had tried on, so she knew exactly what I was looking for. I had initially spoken to Jo on the phone about another gown which she was happy to order in for me, but thought I needed to come into the boutique to have a look first and I am so pleased I did. On the day of my appointment I knew I was not going home without a gown and I was in very good hands!
I have known Jo for a number of years after working with her when I was just 16 years old! I didn't realise she was the owner of Y.A.P until after I made my appointment, so this was a lovely surprise. I was looked after by Danni, she is fabulous and makes you feel completely relaxed and at home when you are in the boutique. The service I received was again fabulous, everything about it was perfect.
I felt like a complete emotional wreck! That’s how I knew it was the one, my Mam and sister in law were also in tears which made it a definite, I was so happy!!
Well what can I say that I haven’t already said? The boutique, the team, the gowns and the service, absolutely everything was just amazing from start to finish. I was quite sad when I picked up my gown the day before my wedding as I knew it was the last time I’d be there for me!
