◊ Y.A.P Guidelines for your Appointment Angels ◊
We are excited to welcome you to our studio & make all the magic together - With the relaxation of the rules from 19th July 2021 we want to ensure everyone’s health & wellbeing is of the upmost importance still and so here are our precious guidelines.
◊◊◊ Prior to your visit IRL ◊◊◊
We advise up to 3-4 Diamond Guests to join you at your appointment angels - meaning you can relax in our beautful fitting rooms spaces, keep everything focused on you finding your precious one and not feel too overwhelmed on the opinion front. When choosing who to join you, think of who’s opinion you value the most, who you feel the most natural in front of & who’s support means the world to you. Please let us know the names of your guests once you have received your confirmation text the week leading up to your visit.
Our sample styles that are available to try on are listed by designer on our Instagram page @yapbridal under the ‘Highlights’ section. Be sure to screenshot or make notes on key designs you’re swooning over –we can explore your ideas at the start of your visit as we'll chat through your dream dress during your consultation when you arrie.
If you or your guest feel unwell, have been in contact with any person showing symptoms or have any symptoms no matter how mild please contact us to reschedule your visit to a safer date – this is imperative.
◊◊◊ On the day ◊◊◊
Please arrive promptly girls - We will still be cleaning, refreshing and preparing your personal bridal space inbetween appointments (both prior & post all visits).
First appointments take an hour to an hour and a half & will be super focused on finding your dream dress. (For full details on length of appointments & what to expect please refer to the ‘Our Precious Promise’ page of our website).
When arriving at the main front door of our studio (this is pink so you cannot miss us) our main sanitiser station is positioned on the wall to your left within the entrance porch – Please all use this facility on entry before meeting your personal stylist, who will lead you to your exclusive appointment room.
With the relaxation on face coverings within retail the decision on whether to wear a mask is completely your choice - We offer such a personal service & our stylists will be wearing either a mask or visor when in close proximity to fasten each dream dress during your visit. If you would prefer our team to wear face coverings throughout your appointment just let us know via email in advance - [email protected]
Both you & your Diamond Guests will have exclusive seating within your personal bridal space. We are asking that you all sit back and relax –Your personal bridal stylist will show you our range - matching you to the most perfect styles – this will minimise popular touch points in store.
We will be giving everyone as much space as possible throughout your time with us still - every little helps in the slowing down of the spread.
◊◊◊ Behind the scenes ◊◊◊
All areas & key touch points are fully sanitised prior & post our brides appointment time. Our products will be fully steam cleaned between appointments.
We will be taking cashless payments for the forseeable months - Our card reader is available for instore payments & balance transfers are encouraged for our precious ones visiting to try on and collect your gowns.
We have made special layout changes within our studio which means that you can relax & fully enjoy your own private appointment room that's full of all our magical vibes.
◊◊◊ Our Y.A.P Brides Precious Collections ◊◊◊
How exciting –you’ve had the call from your Y.A.P Team to say your unreal gown has arrived with us & to plan the next steps - bringing all the positive vibes into your bridal journey.
We are asking our brides to arrange a bank transfer of your gown balance ahead of your visit in real life which minimises shared touch points in store such as card readers to heighten safety & peace of mind – meaning more time to focus on your dream dress. This also allows for us to complete your order with your designer if you're unable to visit us within 30 days of your dress arriving thus supporting your bridal team in following our normal procedures. For details on this service please email us at [email protected]
When you arrive at our studio your bridal gown will be beautifully displayed ready for you to try on - Please let us know in advance if you wish to keep her a surprise for any of your guests so we can prepare your appointment space.
Your collection appointment will take around 30minutes –please let us know if you would like to try on any accessories whilst you are with us & we can have these ready for you.
For our precious ones who have already experienced your gown arrival & our babes whose gowns have just arrived now is the key time to book your Gown Collection with us - It is so important to have your dress with you at home or stored with our recommended seamstress team as she is now all yours, so that you are literally ready to rock your alterations in the lead up to your day - Giving you complete flexibility without any boundaries on timescales.
For Accessory Collections please call or email your Y.A.P team to book your collection time –this means we can ensure one of our stylists is available and has your order all ready for you to sign out.
