Your Bridal Gown

Hints and Tips on buying Your Special Bridal Gown

Jo Stott from Y.A.P Bridal Boutique Newcastle shares with you some hints and tips:

What is the theme of your wedding? - No matter how simple or strong the theme may be, remember to keep this in mind while finding "Your Gown".

  • Go "Au Natural" - keep your make-up simple while trying on gowns. Usually we will be asking you to step into our gowns; however, we may sometimes have to lift the gown over your head.
  • Think about your hair? - up, down or flowing with curls for your big day. This will compliment certain neck lines.
  • Your lingerie - The right underwear makes all the difference - we can advise on what is best.
  • Footwear - think of what sort of heel you will want to have on your big day.


'YOUR GOWN' occupies a unique moment in your life. 

The idea of wearing a special dress for only one day of your life is amazing and you need to get it right.

Remember 'You' wear the dress it does not wear you.

Ball Gown: Fitted bodice and voluminous skirts, petticoats, train and veil is the definitive bridal statement. A Princess Statement!

Princess Line: A flow unbroken from top to bottom, dividing the dress into vertical panels. Clean, minimal and slimming.

Empire Line: Raised waist line beneath the bust. It gives an elongated silhouette - a good all round complimentary dress. A Grecian Style Gown!

Mermaid and Fishtail: This gown fits where it touches. The mermaid is typically figure hugging to the knee then flares to the hem.

A Line: A fitted bodice and flared skirt with a horizontal seam at the waist. The most popular choice for today's brides.

A Bride to be Shares her Y.A.P Experience
'I can't speak highly enough of Y.A.P. Jo was fantastic, the whole experience was perfect and I'm delighted with my dress - I didn't want to take it off! I love the story behind Y.A.P also and it really chimed with me as I also lost my mum recently so I had been dreading the experience a little because of that. I need not have been worried - we had a ball'
