Thank you Joyce for your care and attention. You really listened to what I wanted and I felt part of the design process. I had been looking for an outfit for my son’s wedding for a while and couldn’t find what I was looking for. You took on board my thoughts and designed a stunning silk tartan dress with lace overdress in my family’s tartan, Ancient Campbell. I have never received so many compliments for an outfit before. I was especially pleased that once the overdress was detached, I had a stunning tartan dress suitable for Scottish country dancing balls. Thank you also for the minor alterations when the overdress was detached. Your staff were so helpful and went out of their way to get the dress just right at a time when they were extremely busy. This was appreciated as I live in the Highlands and had to make a 3 hour journey or try to fit appointments in when I was in or a bit nearer Glasgow, thanks to staff for their flexibility. As for value for money, it was worth every penny as I got exactly what I wanted, now have two stunning outfits, and the quality of work and attention to detail was outstanding. The whole process was a very enjoyable experience, and from a rare female who doesn’t like shopping, this is high praise indeed.

Once my daughter decided to get married in the hills above Florence I started the hunt for a suitable dress. I searched the wedding magazines and finally found Joyce Young. It was a wonderful experience from start to finish. I saw the dress as soon as I walked in as it was being displayed on a mannequin. However, I felt that I would suit a brighter colour and so Florence suggested some alternatives colours. I really enjoyed going to Glasgow for the 3 fittings and was a little sorry once the experience was over.

After some hesitation I decided that a fascinator would really finish off the outfit. Joyce made me a wonderful fascinator dyed to match the dress and I really love it. I also bought the matching shoes and handbag as it was so easy to get everything under the one roof.

The wedding last week was wonderful. A very happy day. I got many compliments about my outfit and I really enjoyed wearing it. All the staff at Joyce Young were so helpful and friendly. I certainly would recommend them to anyone.

I am so glad I found Joyce and her wonderful team,they were very helpful from our very first visit . Florence is simply the best at picking out styles that are perfect for you,although it wasn’t what I expected!!! But ,it was perfect and I felt very confident and comfortable on my daughters wedding day.I cannot praise or thank them enough.

Joyce Young Designs was a great experience from start to finish. My main criteria was that the dress should be comfortable and after looking for ages , I first saw the possible dress for my son’s wedding on Joyce Young’s website. I made an appointment and met Joyce Young. Joyce showed me different styles of outfits and colours ( which are all beautifully made) but I still came back to my original choice. Once the decision was made Joyce took my measurements and 3 appointments were made. First fitting was with the dress in calico, a second fitting for final adjustments in the materials I chose and the final appointment where the dress was ready to take away.
Joyce is delightful and all the staff I met namely Val and Flo are very friendly and helpful with no airs and graces. It is the first time I have had an outfit made to measure and the whole experience has been really enjoyable.
The Joyce Young Studio is very easy to get to, and for two of the fittings I went to the Studio by train from Glasgow Queen Street station. It only takes 15 minutes and the station is next door to the studio. There is also plenty parking right outside the studio.
I am delighted with my outfit. ( So is my husband ) I feel really good in it and it is very comfortable just as I wanted. I can’t wait to wear it at the wedding.
Joyce is going to be well represented at our wedding as the mother of the bride has gone to the London branch of Joyce Young for her outfit !! It has also been useful we have gone to the same designer as we can be confident we have entirely different outfits.
Thank you very much to all the team

I had seen the dress I wanted in a magazine. I phoned and made an appointment in February 2016. On visiting the showroom I explained that I wanted to lose weight and as the wedding wasn’t until April 2017 I had given myself plenty of time. This was not a problem. I picked my dress and paid the deposit securing the material. They couldn’t have been nicer or friendlier. I phoned and made my appointment for January for my measurements to be taken by the wonderful Val. After another three appointment I had my fabulous outfit. I felt so comfortable and glamorous in it. I received numerous compliments on my outfit at the wedding. It was as fresh at the end of the wedding as it was at the start. No crushing. I can’t recommend Joyce Young by Storm enough. You will not be disappointed.

My experience started about 7 years ago in a kilt makers in Edinburgh who, at that time. was displaying the most beautiful wedding dress I had ever seen, nothing like the usual ivory or cream. I knew that I had to have this when my other half finally popped the question. 7 years later the planning began. Returning to the kilt makers I found out that the dress was designed by Joyce Young. My quest was on. Having made an appointment to visit by Storm in Glasgow I arrived quite late in the day but was given a warm welcome. Explaining what I wanted I had the services of Florence and Joyce – what more could a woman want? The dress I had chosen all those years ago was from the Tartan wedding range, in particular the Heritage design. Being a woman of a certain age it wasn’t suitable to where all ivory or white so this was absolutely perfect with a few tweaks – not so much ivory – more tartan and learning that Joyce had designed the tartan herself made it even more perfect. My first fitting was awesome. Val was now looking after me, we had such a laugh. I kept changing size (like you do!!) but that was never a problem, by the time I got to the fitting where the dress was made out of the tartan I was nearly in tears (of joy), I couldn’t believe how it looked, little OLD me in something so spectacular. Val was very patient with me – living in Newark on Trent my fittings had to be made around visiting the frozen north which happened four times a year. By the time of my very last fitting in February 2017 I was now panicking about shoes. The first pair I had purchased didn’t go with the dress even though Val had given me a swatch to work with. I hadn’t managed to find any that suited since. Val sorted me out taking me back down to their most sumptuous and calming showroom a bride or even brides mother would ever want to be in. Six pairs of shoes later Val had found the right choice for me. My journey was complete. Joyce was there on my last visit as well what a fitting end. Val and the team even sorted cravats for the men matching the cravat colour to the colour of their kilts. I have only six days to go before I walk up the ‘aisle’, no-one expect my Maid of Honour knows what I am wearing, Thank you so much to Joyce, Florence, Val, Irene and all the staff for making my wedding so special for me.

From the first time I walked in to Joyce Young and met Florence, to picking up my outfit from Val, I was extremely happy with the service and courteous professionalism that was shown to me. Florence has a really good eye for what does and does not suit without being pushy-She made me feel very much at ease and I was very grateful she was there. After the outfit was picked, I was then passed onto the very experienced dressmaker, Val. What a pleasure to deal with someone so pleasant and talented. My outfit was stunning and I was so glad that someone recommended Joyce Young to me!

I am getting married in September next year and have been so excited since we set the date….well about everything but my dress! I am a curvier woman (maybe considered ‘plus size’) and the thought of finding a dress in my size filled me with dread! My Mam arranged an appointment at Joyce Young Glasgow for us both and to be honest I wasn’t looking forward to it….that was until we arrived! A stylish and classy showroom was first followed by meeting Florence, also stylish and classy! I was instantly put at ease with Florence who asked about my special day and what style I was going for so she could incorporate that into my dress. I had a dress in mind that I thought would cover up all the wobbly bits…how wrong I was! Florence tried me in a variety of shapes, styles and fabrics and finally designed me the perfect wedding dress for me and it was the opposite to what I had originally thought would be best for me. I couldn’t of asked for a better day and I can sit back and relax knowing my dress is taken care of and that it will fit me perfectly when the day comes. I’m excited for my fittings to start now and so is my Mam who also got a fabulous Mother of the Bride outfit too! Florence also helped pick the perfect shoes, head piece and veil so all sorted in one lovely afternoon! I couldn’t recommend Joyce Young Glasgow enough for brides of any shape or size….they have everything and if they haven’t they make it for you. Worth every penny in my opinion to look and feel your best on your wedding day!

First of all I want to say that I have had a wonderful experience at Joyce Young Design Studio Glasgow.
From the first visit where I met Joyce who helped me to pick out an outfit for my son’s wedding. She made suggestions to ensure that my choice of dress and contrasting jacket were ideally suited to my requirements.
After my choice of outfit I had three planned fittings and met the wonderful Val. Her attention to detail was incredible and nothing was too much trouble. She advised on a number of changes which were perfect for my style of outfit. I cannot praise highly enough Val and her colleagues for the quality of workmanship.
I have had a wonderful buying experience from a wonderful and dedicated team.
Lots of love and grateful thanks

AN OASIS OF CALM.

Having just come from a well recommended shop I was tired,disillusioned and empty handed.
My friends and I walked into By Storm .
It was like an oasis of calm compared to anywhere else I had tried. We were a bit early for my appointment but were offered coffee and a comfortable seat.
I was lucky enough to be attended to by Joyce which was a fantastic experience. After trying just a few outfits Joyce came up with a combination which suited me perfectly. I really valued her input and gentle manner.
The outfit was chosen, I was measured and after months of looking around, one visit to By Storm and I was sorted!
I had 3 fittings with the lovely Val who couldn’t have been more helpful. She also advised me on which hat and bag to chose, making them to match my outfit.
I received some wonderful comments about my outfit on the day, however, the best bit for me was not only how good I felt but how comfortable I was. That feeling lasted the whole day!
I can’t thank Joyce, Val and the whole team enough.
THANK YOU.
Elaine.

I first came across my outfit in a magazine, I made my appointment at Joyce Young Glasgow, where I was greeted by Florence for my private one and a half hour appointment and I was not disappointed. I decided on a dress and jacket, Val then came through and took measurements and from there I had three fittings from my first visit. Val and team were wonderful even when I changed material from part of my dress with a week to go to the wedding, they pulled out all the stops . I also bought my hat, bag and shoes there. I had the most wonderful comments from guests and members of the public as Dan and Vairi were married at St Giles Cathedral and then the reception at Prestonfield House. My outfit was collection K purple and teal dress and jacket.

This was my first wedding as mother of the groom and I felt so special, I have two other children and when they marry there will be only one shop that I will buy my next outfit at.

Many Thanks Team Joyce Young

Teena Gilmour.

I cant thank Joyce, Val & Florence enough when its came to their help designing my dress. For years Joyce has designed dress & outfits for my mum so there was no other option than going right to Joyce. I cant wait to see the finished piece x
