“The jewel in the crown of our wedding…”
We used Dapper & Bride for my wedding this summer and their service was stellar.
They provided our invitations, place name cards, table plan and the jewel in the crown of our wedding… Our very own wedding magazine. What was provided had a unique design and a quality finished that everyone praised. The wedding magazine was a big hit. People are still asking me for more as a memento of the wedding. We plan order more to give to family overseas.
The quality of end products was only bettered by Kysha’s professionalism. For a highly stressful, big occasion, you need someone who knows what they’re doing and the right way to go about it. Someone who’s done it before and knows what to look out for. To reassure you and instilled you with confidence in their abilities – this is what Dapper & Bride provided.
In fact, we had issues with ever supplier we used. The evening caterer forgot to bring spoons, the wedding car didn’t arrive because it caught on fire (true story) but Dapper & Bride delivered without flaw. Kysha had thought of everything. So we didn’t need to do much thinking…which is exactly what we needed.

“You really transformed the design and feel of our wedding. We loved working with you!”
Amazing designs and a really innovative idea.
(We liked) Everything from start to finish! Kysha was friendly, professional, creative and really good at turning things round quickly. She was an absolute pleasure to work with.
Kysha carefully wove the colours and feel we wanted for our wedding into all of the designs. We would recommend her to anyone and everyone!
The guests absolutely loved the magazine - they had never seen anything like it before. The guests (particularly the ladies) like the way everything matched and the theme and colours ran throughout everything.
Thank you so much! You really transformed the design and feel of our wedding. We loved working with you!

“It blew our guests away and was such a lovely touch.”
My bridesmaid and Best friend organised the whole thing for us and she said Kysha was amazing to work with in every way. The detail in the magazine is amazing. We couldn't believe that it could work in two languages either. We couldn't of been happier with the outcome of the magazine. Especially as we had it in 2 languages. It blew our guests away and was such a lovely touch.
No (improvements needed) it was perfect. Our guests -they couldn't believe the magazine as a lot of our guests had never seen this before. Thank you so much for all of your help :)

“We are over the moon, they look amazing!”
Kysha was so helpful every step of the way, even when I wanted to check the design or layout of one of the pages to fit in with my own personal ideas,
Kysha was quick to come back to me if I any had any queries and with the final drafts of the magazine. Nothing was too much trouble… We are over the moon, they look amazing!
The only people who have seen our magazine are myself and Alex and our parents - our parents are so impressed. It's such a unique thing to be able to give out to guests on the day. (After the wedding) Everyone loved the magazines, all our guests commented on how they had not seen anything like it before.
I will not hesitate to recommend Dapper & Bride to any future family/friends that are getting married

“We both were extremely surprised at how polished and personalised the magazine was.”
Our initial expectations were we wanted a product that would compliment our big day, a professional service, something affordable and fun. It was brought to our attention by a family member that Dapper & Bride would be able to meet our needs.
Our first impressions of the brand Dapper & Bride was amazement. We both were extremely surprised at how polished and personalised the magazine was. It was something different and no one that we had known had anything like this.
The things we liked the most working with Dapper & Bride were;
The professional service: From beginning to end Kysha explained to us how things would work. What we needed to supply her to produce the magazine. We were able to contact Kysha by phone and email. Her communication skills were excellent. There was never a time we were unable to contact Kysha and she always kept us update with her progress.
The amount of input we had in supplying content for the magazine: We were initially surprised at how much input we had. From choosing pictures, to getting family and friends to write kind messages. We were able to add the things we really wanted in our magazine.
The quick turnaround time: We were very surprised at how quick we were able to see the first draft of the magazine. It was then a matter of a few weeks before we were holding our very own copy.
Being kept informed of progress every step of the way: Kysha kept us informed and communicated with us at every step of the way. Kysha went above and beyond to ensure we had our ideal magazine that represented us. Kysha listened to What we wanted and didn't try to sell us unnecessary add ons or extras. The pricing was very clear and met our budget requirements.
As a couple we were fairly confident that what we wanted from Dapper & Bride could be delivered as Kysha had come highly recommended. We wanted something that would capture our big day in a different way. We wanted to do something and have something different. We feel not only did Dapper & Bride meet our expectations they also surpassed them. The magazine was more then we expected. We feel this was achieved because Kysha listened to what we wanted. Had a great eye for detail but allowed us to tap into our creative selves. Kysha encouraged us to have a say and be bold with our choices.
All the guests loved our wedding magazine. Reactions from guest were all positive. Guests loved the concept. Many people were considering the magazine for their weddings or for other celebrations they were having. Most memorable moment were seeing peoples reactions to the magazine's for the first time. That was timeless.

“It was so amazing opening the delivery and seeing the magazines and thank you cards for the first time!”
I didn’t know a lot (about Dapper & Bride) as I saw the brand on Hollie Kane’s (Instagram). I had almost finalised all my wedding plans and I saw the Dapper & Bride magazines and knew I had to get one!
I like the fact that the product has its own unique identity and you could personalise it however you wanted. I liked the fact that Kysha was so efficient in getting back to you and the process was very smooth. My favourite thing was writing the brief and planning the content to make it unique and personal to you.
The final outcome exceeded my original expectations by a mile. It was so amazing opening the delivery and seeing the magazines and thank you cards for the first time!
Dapper & Bride is such an amazing brand and I can’t recommend it enough to my friends and family! The magazines are such a great keepsake and give me great memories of the best day of our lives. Kysha, you are fabulous and I wish you every success in the future with your brand!
(The guests) They absolutely loved it! They always tell me how they have shown their friends, family and work colleagues. Myself and Liam are basically famous now lol.

“The concept was spot on and everything I wanted.”
I loved the product as soon as I saw it and knew I had to have it for my wedding. It was such a unique idea and a special keepsake to set the scene of the wedding.
Kysha was so helpful from start to finish, she is so efficient and accommodating. She was a delight to work with on both occasions. My experience was very positive I always received my magazines earlier than expected and they were perfect. I had both the Wedding Magazine and Thank you Magazine.
The concept was spot on and everything I wanted.
I would like to thank Kysha for adding that special touch to our wedding day, all of our guests loved the magazine and couldn’t stop talking about it. I can't wait to have a baby so we can use Dapper & Bride again!
(Our guests) They loved it! It was a big hit. All of our guests had a copy of Dapper & Bride waiting in their rooms the day before the wedding so they had time to read it and find out things they didn’t know about us. The kids loved the word searches too!
I have recommended it to many of my friends who are also getting married in the next few years.

“The experience from start to finish was amazing…”
We found Dapper and Bride at the wedding fair, straight away we loved how they presented their wedding magazines and how much we could show inside them for all of our guests. We thought it was a great idea for a wedding.
We got a guide on what to put on each page or ideas we could put across for our wedding. We loved sitting down together and filling out our journey and also picking photo memories for everyone to see. We did a photo shoot to have nice images on the cover - that was a fun day and also we get to keep them photos, forever.
When we received our mini magazines prior to the big day, they were even more beautiful in real life. The colours we chose and photos we pictured, all came together and they were perfect.
The experience from start to finish was amazing… We were so overwhelmed with the outcome. All of our friends can’t wait to plan their future weddings with Dapper & Bride in mind.”
-Hollie & Josh Wright
“Far beyond what we thought and it was just great.”
Really liked the idea of the magazine and have never seen something like this before.
(Kysha was) Easy to get along with, nothing was too much trouble and had some great ideas and thoughts…
Far beyond what we thought and it was just great. They (our guests) are amazed with it and think it’s a great keep sake from the day.
Thank you Thank you Thank you.

“I just can’t thank Kysha enough. We were so happy and it meant the world to us!”
I wanted something that was more personal then an order or service. We wanted to give our guests an insight to our relationship in a fun and funky way. The magazine was the perfect way to do that. Kysha was out going, fun and gave you every second of her time if you needed it. She was very professional and you really felt like she cared about your individual story. She was also very flexible.
I loved how much detail Kysha put into the form that she requests you fill in. It really highlights all the top bits about your relationship. I also liked that you are sent as many drafts as you need in order to ensure it’s perfect! Kysha really does care about all her clients and if you got a bit stuck she was there to offer guidance. I also loved how excited Kysha seemed to get which really made the whole experience a lot more personal. This was definitely my favourite bit about designing my wedding. I was so excited to receive the final prints and they came well within time.
They exceeded my expectations! Absolutely perfect. Kysha is very good at what she does and I think she should be very proud. The whole planning of the magazine is so well structured that everything was such a breeze! You expect to get stressed during your wedding prep - but not with Kysha. Easy peasy!
(The guests) They loved them! Everyone hadn’t seen something like that before and it’s so nice to get to know both the bride and groom if you are only from one side. Our nearest and dearest loved being featured in the “kind words” section as it made them feel really special. It was also a brilliant way to identify who’s who in the wedding party! On a plus! It was also super hot on our wedding say so after they had been read our guests also thought they doubled up as a great fan!
I just can’t thank Kysha enough. We were so happy and it meant the world to us!

“Warming and easy to talk through ideas/vision”
- Very personable - Met deadlines. - Took brief very well, when receiving concepts they were spot and fell in love with them instantly.
Overall, I was very happy with the concepts and final print of the invites. We had received many compliments about the invitations mentioning how different they were. With the final print this has enable us to shape our theme for the wedding.
Very excited to see the remaining docs which will feature on the wedding day!

Our Dapper & Bride Magazine
Hi Kysha, I would like to start with saying thank you from the both of us, for the amazing job you did.
The magazine was amazing and what we really liked was that it was unique. One of my friends brought it to her workplace as her colleagues couldn't believe we had an actual magazine dedicated to us.
The front page said it all, as it made people wonder and excited to view the content. I loved the suitability of the doves and it was an amazing way of incorporating something important to us without overwhelming guests.
The guests knew what to expect and as we handed the magazines while they were seating it was a good way of waiting for the bride as she was late!
Guests said that they got to know our story and it really correlated with the day, as I did a surprise rap on Notorious BIG for Ben he was so impressed he felt obliged to freestyle on it right after. It was one of the highlights of our day! Finally you were right it was a "rap affair" - if you remember I was more for the Gatsby theme, but it turns out not everything stays as you wished from beginning to end.
The friends and family words is more a nice memory for us mainly I guess.
The magazine is not only great for actual guests but also for everyone else who was invited but could not be present. It is a bit of the day summary, well, kind of! And I liked the idea of thanking the people whom helped us put our celebration together.
That is all I can think of really. We loved every bit of it and we were so happy - not a bad thing to say.
You are so kind and considerate. Please stay that way as that is a huge factor as why you are successful. I just hope you get loads more orders.
Many, many thanks,”
- Patience...and Ben (lol), South London
“Very high expectations but nervous...”
About whether my imagined design would materialise in the way I have envisioned.
Kysha was professional and reliable. There were no delays and as I’m a lover of plans and lists, the structured and organised way is which work is done really left me feeling calm and satisfied.
Invitations - Kysha took a few details from me, based on a rough sketch in my head and created the perfect invitation for our day.
Perfect. Colour, shape and design... minor alterations on the font but perfect.
THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!

“Our first impressions of Kysha’s brand was very impressive.”
In our first meeting with Kysha, we were shown examples of the work she completed for previous weddings which helped create a bespoke design for us.
We enjoyed working with Kysha, it has felt like a journey from the beginning. She supported us in having a running theme from our save the dates to the final order of service. Everything worked beautifully together. We got a lot of comments from family and friends. Kysha spoke with us on a regular basis to check in with us and incorporate our vision.
It is hard to say what was our favourite everything was so fantastic. Although in particular, the quiz we had for our guests had an interesting visual twist to it which was very creative and a pleasant surprise.
Our original idea was beautifully incorporated, we had our faith as Christian Believers reflected in a very creative way and the colours magenta and gold complemented each other very well.
We were very happy with everything and would recommend Kysha to future couples.
Thank you again for everything Kysha, we are so happy with everything. The vision came to life beautifully and it is remarkable to have had you on this journey with us to make it happen.
