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

I was excited but also a little apprehensive having never been through the experience before. I wanted to make sure that I definitely chose the right dress for me.

On arriving at our boutique what were your initial thoughts?

Myself, my Mam and sister were all warmly welcomed and as I looked around I remember thinking how pretty, charming and glamorous the boutique was. The story behind the boutique opening was uplifting and heart warming.

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

I was quite open to looking at different styles however I knew that I wanted my dress to be lace. After trying on only two dresses I knew the type of style that I wanted.

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

Yes. Danni was extremely knowledgeable about all of the dresses. I knew about the new range of Maggie Sottero gowns that had recently arrived in store so I was drawn to those quickly. Danni listened intently to the thoughts that I had and picked out some exquisite gowns that matched my initial ideas.

How did you find our service from start to finish?

Truly wonderful. All of the staff that I dealt with went out of their way to help you. They gave high quality customer service with a smile!

How did you feel when you found your dream gown & what made you choose it?

I knew immediately when I had found ‘the one!’ As I appeared from behind the curtain my Mam cried, this confirmed it for me! I had been keeping a close eye on some of the new Maggie Sottero gowns knowing a lot of them were lace and as soon as I put it on I feel in love with it. I loved how we were given a glass of fizz to celebrate finding my dream gown and we were made to feel really special.

Where did you find the perfect accessories for your gown?

My shoes and jewellery were from Monsoon and my gorgeous hair piece was purchased from YAP.

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

Wonderful experience from start to finish. The staff are so friendly and I immediately felt at home and at ease.

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

I felt incredible! I was overwhelmed with the kind words and compliments people constantly gave me about my dress.

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