I said Yes! Finally!
Samila was the 7th bridal dress appointment I had done. Yes, SEVEN. Over the course of 7 months, too. I had had some good experiences where I just didn't find the one, but also some bad ones that made me not want to go to another store again. And then I saw a Facebook ad that Samila was having a trunk show of my favorite designer, so I thought I'd give dress shopping one more try, and I'm so glad I did! I was solo at this appointment due to Covid and work flexibilities, but I never felt alone. Yasmin and her "apprentice" Shay were incredibly nice and really listened to what I wanted and asked questions so that they could pull out the right dresses. I had a good feeling when there was a rack full of dresses that matched what I was looking for within minutes, whereas at the last shop there wasn't even a single dress that did. Shay helped me in dresses and took pictures for me. Yasmin put some finishing touches to the fit and worked her magic with talking me through things. She interpreted my mixed feelings and contradictory statements and was able to make the right adjustments to have the number one dress fit exactly how I wanted. And then she continued to work magic. And I mean magic! I had been hung up for so long on this one dress by Morilee online that no one had a sample of, so I couldn't try it on (I'd still be able to order it through Samila tho). When it came down to the one I had on and the one that was online, I at first was still torn. These decisions are hard! But from the initial chat, Yasmin knew that I was a biologist and thus started approaching the comparison rather scientifically for me. She broke down each detail I was debating on and was able to help me see the differences with other dresses or lighting, etc. In the end I was able to come to the conclusion myself that the dress I had on was the perfect one, and actually better than the one I had been hung up on for over 6 months. I tearily said Yes to the dress and felt like I was in a room of friends with their reaction, too. Yasmin even was able to find the right size in stock so that it will get here in time and gave me a discount to put my frugal mind at ease a bit. When I left, I realized that my appointment had gone way longer than it was supposed to, but I had never felt rushed or pressured. I was the center of their attention and felt valued and respected, even when, I admit, I was probably being difficult. I would recommend them to any bride, and I wish I had gone to them earlier! Definitely worth the drive to West Seattle, even with the bridge out (that alone is saying a lot!). Thank you, Yasmin (and Shay)!Sent on 01/26/2021

Samila Boutique- The place you want to go to buy your wedding dress
Samila Boutique is AMAZING. This was one of three total places I went. Yasmin is the actual best. She made the experience so fun for me, my mom, and MOH. She listened to what I wanted, or thought I wanted, but also provided ideas and suggestions. She worked hard to make sure the dresses looked right by pinning and clipping up a storm so I could see what they would look like on my actual day. I never felt pressured to buy (even though I bought that day) and really can't say how much I enjoyed the experience. Kind of wish I needed to buy 5 more wedding dresses (not really), because we had such an amazing morning. I would tell any bride in the greater Seattle area to come check out Samila Boutique.Sent on 11/02/2020
Samila Bridal and Formal's reply:Kallie, I had such a great time meeting you, your mom, and your MOH! I'm glad you're a Samila bride and can't wait to be with you every step of the way to your wedding. xoxo Yasmin

I said YES at Samila Boutique!
I had an incredible experience shopping for my wedding gown here. The combination of a wide dress selection, a chic and modern boutique, and amazing service with Yasmin made this an unparalleled shopping experience. My appointment was comfortable, fun, and so positive! Yasmin is an absolute professional but also so sweet, encouraging, and supportive. Both my mom and my fiance's mom joined me at the appointment, and they both want to come back to check out the evening wear selection for their MOB & MOG dresses! And also - I said YES to the dress at Samila Boutique!!Sent on 09/22/2020
Samila Bridal and Formal's reply:Alicia, thank you for the kind words! I'm glad I was able to make you visit enjoyable :) I look forward to seeing you guys again! xoxo Yasmin
