Your ‘love story’…
Jack and I met at secondary school!
Tell us how you felt before your first appointment to try on gowns
Extremely nervous. I was very body conscious at my first appointment as I was trying to lose weight and I had put a lot of pressure on myself.
On arriving at Y.A.P Bridal Boutique what were your initial thoughts
Excited but really nervous. I had visited a few boutiques before Y.A.P. and I didn’t feel comfortable in any of the dresses. I was starting to worry about the time frame and that I still hadn’t found a style which suited me.
How did your consultation during your appointment help to find the perfect dress for you?
The consultation was amazing. Danni and Heather were so welcoming, kind and made me feel at ease straight away. They talked me through everything and were more than happy for me to try on my ‘perfect’ dress and then when I started to feel defeated they stepped in and used their knowledge and experience to find me my dress.
Tell us about your bridal stylist and the ‘You Are Precious’ service you received
Danni was absolutely out of this world! She made everything about the experience exciting and not as terrifying as I thought it would be. She was so patient with me and guided me through the whole thing. Heather was also absolutely amazing and she was actually the one who pulled out my dress in the end. The girls even stayed late with me on my first appointment which I thought was customer service on another level.
How did you feel when you found your dream gown & how did you know it was ‘The One’
When I first tried on the dress it didn’t quite fit and I was really demotivated and frustrated with myself. Danni advised to go home and think about it and book a second consultation to try it on again. I did this and my goodness, the best advice ever! I came back for my second consultation and it fit! I have never felt a feeling like it before. I absolutely loved it and instantly knew it was ‘The One’ when I seen my entourage’s reaction.
Talk to us about your overall Y.A.P Bridal Journey…
It was more than I ever wished for. I don’t think there are enough adjectives to describe how great this boutique is. Everyone was so helpful, so happy and so wonderful in every way. I hate shopping and don’t enjoy the typical retail experience but in Y.A.P. I could of stayed for hours. It’s so relaxed and you don’t feel under pressure to make an instant decision, absolutely amazing.
How did you feel in your amazing Y.A.P gown on your wedding day?
I felt confident, this is something I have never felt before in my life. It was an absolutely amazing feeling.
Where was your wedding held and what kind of day did you want?
We got married at Le Petit Chateau in Otterburn. I just wanted all of the people I love in one room to share the best day of our lives with us.
What colour scheme/ theme did you choose for your big day?
I didn’t have a specific colour scheme on the day. The girls wore an Opal grey which meant I could have various colours throughout the flowers etc. We went for soft pastels and blues which I feel went really well with the venue.
Tell us about your chosen suppliers and how they made your day perfect
I couldn’t fault one of my suppliers, I got super lucky and I can’t thank them enough. We used Nigel John for our photography, he is absolutely unbelievable and my photos are more than I could of imagined. We used The Master Cakesmith for our amazing desert table, her brownies are to die for! Wildflower created the most amazing mantelpieces, bouquets and centrepieces. Bride and Groove made sure the dance floor was never empty and The Chief Chalker created the most beautiful table plans and welcome boards.
