Favourite part of your experience at You Are Precious Bridal?

The team at You Are Precious made me feel so at ease. I was so so nervous to try on dresses and had been apprehensive for weeks leading up to the appointment. The moment I walked into the shop, I immediately felt comfortable and like I was in the safest hands. They listened to what kind of dresses I loved and were so patient in helping me find the one. I was also then so fortunate to return back to the shop when I decided that I wanted two dresses – a ceremony dress and reception dress. I never thought I would have two dresses but couldn’t have been happier to have landed with two perfect dresses that the team helped me find with such professionalism and grace.

The feeling when you found your precious wedding dress?

It felt like the most natural thing in the world. Like it was meant to be. I’d never really imagined myself in a wedding dress before and had been so focused on all of the wedding planning. The moment I found the dress made me stop and realise that I’m a bride, getting married to the love of my life. It was a pinch me moment. I would love to have the same feeling over and over again.

What top tip would you give to our future brides ahead of their bridal appointment or wedding day?

My advice for your appointment is to trust the You Are Precious team and to be swept away with the enjoyment of the experience. I know how daunting it can feel, I’d lost a considerable amount of weight and was so apprehensive that I wouldn’t find the one or that I’d hate how I looked in all of them. Trust me, you’ve got the best team around you to make suggestions, make you feel incredible and feel like the bride you are.
