Pitfalls & mistakes to look out for on your search for a dream wedding dress!

Finding your dream wedding dress is a time of excitement, magic and wonder, but can also be pretty nerve wrecking if you make some of the mistakes many a first-time bride has made, and these mistakes can spoil what should be a fairy princess dream come true!

If it’s possible, get yourself ready and organised pretty well in advance.  Plan on starting the search between five to nine months before your wedding, just to make sure that any and all alterations are ready on time, but, don’t shop too early and then find a dress you completely fall in love with closer to your wedding day!

With the speed at which style changes, another iffy part about shopping for your wedding dress too early is that it may well be out of style by the time your big day comes around – last thing any of us wants!

The theme of your wedding is also going to be a major deciding factor in how you go about moving in the right direction to find your dream wedding dress – if you have dreamt of a frothy, floating ball gown or perhaps a stunningly glittering mermaid style wedding dress, make sure it suits the theme, season and time of day.  This is far too important a day to end up unhappy and uncomfortable in your wedding dress!

Do a bit of research into the language of bridal gowns, such as understanding the different dress styles – such as A-line, mermaid, column, fish-tale and more, as well as getting an idea of the very many necklines available, which would include terms like square, V and halter – knowing a little about this terminology and which suits you better is going to make your journey to that dream dress a little easier.

Don’t choose the dress for your mother, mother-in-law, best friend or anyone else for that matter, it’s your wedding dress so choose the one you want, the one that makes you feel like the fairy tale princess you always dreamed of!

Don’t even think about choosing your accessories before you find the dress!  You will more than likely find that nothing matches by the time you have tried on and discarded a heap of dresses to finally settle on ‘the’ one!

It is your inalienable right to make the final decision about what constitutes your dream wedding dress, but, letting the team at Ever After Bridal share their experience with you by offering solid advice based on their knowledge of the beautiful range of designer dresses available for sale in Durbanville and Nelspruit is going to make the journey a lot less stressful than it need be.

Remaining open to experienced advice from a passionate team makes narrowing down your choices of style, colour and accessories so much easier than trying to do it on your own – it’s about having professional guidance rather than someone else’s opinion shoved down your throat on this important journey.

Ever After Bridal will incorporate your personal likes and dislikes into their ability to guide you to wedding dresses that finally lead to the dress that makes you feel absolutely beautiful; no matter what, do not settle until you have fallen in love with the dress!

The team at Ever After Bridal would love to meet you and assist you to find the wedding dress perfectly suited to your figure, personality and style so that they can share in your excitement and pleasure when you stand facing yourself in the mirror wearing the wedding dress of your dreams!

Let your wedding dress be a perfect extension of your unique personal style!

Don’t let anyone tell you what you should or shouldn’t look for in a wedding dress!  If you have a funky nature, let it bubble out and be as quirky as you like in your choice of wedding dress, or, if your personality lends itself to the classic, romantic or even Victorian style, dive in and make it your own personal expression of who you are – it’s your wedding day and your bold statement of what your dream wedding dress looks like to you!

Ever After Bridal is not going to simply nod heads as you try on dresses that do not do justice to your personality and style, while they won’t force an opinion on you, they are certainly going to share the many years’ worth of experience they have had in dressing beautiful brides with you, to make sure that you find the wedding dress of your dreams in their bridal salons in Durbanville and Nelspruit!

Designer dresses from the likes of Maggie Sottero, Enzoani, Sophia Tolli and Rebecca Ingram fill the racks at Ever After Bridal, making sure that there is a wedding dress to buy or hire for every bride crossing the threshold into their world of romance, lace and satin!

There are more shades of white, cream, ivory and lightly coloured wedding dresses than you can imagine, so that when you do find the style of wedding dress perfect for you, but prefer it in a unique colour or size, the team at Ever After Bridal will go the full distance to make sure that your dress is ordered direct from the designer!

You can rely 100% on the fact that Ever After Bridal will go all out to make sure that you have the team’s full attention on a journey that will be a lot more fun than you’d imagine!

Finally finding the dress you fall hopelessly in love with isn’t just a matter of trying on dress after dress, it’s also the one dress you will wear only once, the one you will look at in your wedding album for years to come, and most likely the most expensive dress you will ever wear, and it is for all these reasons that having a caring, experienced and professional team passionate about what they do will make all the difference to the journey!

Short and funky, sleek and sexy or a romantic classic and Victorian masterpiece; it’s all up to you,  the team at Ever After Bridal is only interested in being your guests on the journey to the wedding dress of your dreams!

Make unashamed use of the experience of this team renowned for dressing brides throughout South Africa and from around the world, Ever After Bridal has yet to let any bride leave without the wedding dress of her dreams!

Don’t let anyone stand in the way of your right to wear the wedding dress that suits who you are to perfection!

Be comfortable in your wedding dress so that your confidence can sparkle brightly on your wedding day!

You’ve dreamed of your fairy tale wedding since you were a little girl, imagining your prince charming transfixed by the vision you will be as you approach him down the aisle in a wedding dress to take his breath away, but none of us thought about the practicalities that would come about when we finally found our prince charming and starting shopping for a dream wedding dress!

You will find yourself bombarded with questions like ‘are you going with a fish tale, ball gown romantic or super sexy shape of dress’, or, ‘what colours will suit your complexion best’ and even questions about the shoes and underwear you will be wearing – none of this featured in any of those little-girl fantasies, that’s for sure!

The reality is a whole lot different, and, without the support of a bridal shop that offers everything from stunning designer dresses to a team able to deal with all the alterations, nips, tucks, frills and laces to be added, it can be more difficult than need be.

This is what the team at Ever After Bridal is dedicated to; making the journey to the perfect wedding dress one in which each bride has the full support and undivided attention of people who do what they love most!

If anyone can make finding your dream wedding dress a lot more fun and a lot less stress, then Ever After Bridal can – having dressed many brides in the six years since they opened their doors, this team has maintained a single minded drive to bring the greatest joy to each bride they take the journey with.

Before we go into why it’s essential for you to be absolutely comfortable in your wedding dress, it needs to be pointed out that Ever After Bridal has the most exquisite range of designer wedding dresses for sale and for hire in Durbanville and Nelspruit, giving every bride, with every budget, the opportunity to wear the best on her wedding day!

Designers Maggie Sottero and her latest discovery, Rebecca Ingram join ranks with two ranges representing Enzoani designs and the best of Sophia Tolli – these are names that fill the top rungs of wedding gown designers worldwide, and not for nothing if you take the time to explore the portfolio online at Ever After Bridal!

There is nothing worse than wearing any outfit, for any occasion, that is so uncomfortable that you can’t wait to get home and rip it off, and doing this with your wedding dress is going to be even worse!

The practicalities of being able to sit, dance or even go to the bathroom all have to be taken into consideration as you try on and discard wedding dresses – if you can barely move or breathe in your wedding dress, you are going to be more focussed on the discomfort than on the priceless beauty of this once-in-a-lifetime day, and, every time you look at the dress in your wedding album you are going to wince!

Don’t do that to yourself, choose a style that enhances everything that is unique about you, from your shape to your colouring, but do it so that you are comfortable enough to radiate a confidence that will make you shine brighter than a diamond on your wedding day!

Contact the team at Ever After Bridal to be a firm shoulder of support and wise voice of experience driven by passion as you work towards making your dreams a reality!
