5 Tips From The Experts For Finding The Right Bridal Gown In Cape Town

Nothing can cause hysteria in a bride like not being able to find her dream bridal gown. With thousands of bridal gowns in Cape Town to choose from, it can be overwhelming to choose the one that fits you just right, especially if you have no idea of what it is you’re looking for. Trying on hundreds of gowns will only end in frustration.

That’s why we’ve put together some tips to help you find your dream bridal gown in Cape Town.

Look for ideas on Pinterest

While there are thousands of wedding gowns on Pinterest, you can easily find some inspiration by taking some time to browse. By doing this type of research, you’ll get a better idea of what is available, in fashion and what you like when it comes to fabric, shape and texture.

Choose a dress according to the mood of your wedding

By establishing the mood for your big day – daytime/nighttime wedding, winter/summer etc. – it will make it easier to narrow down your dress choices.

Consider your body shape

You might have an idea of what you want but it’s better to try on a few different shapes at your first appointment. You might be surprised to find another style that fits you better than the one you originally planned. In the end, you want your dress to emphasise your best features while minimising your not-so-good features.

Choose your colour wisely

The colour of your dress is another element that can make you feel beautiful and confident. The shade of the fabric can enhance your skin tone just like the silhouette can enhance your shape. Before you make your final decision, make sure you try on a few different shades of white, or even colour to see what looks good on you.

Just be yourself

Keep in mind that your dress represents who you are. While it can be tempting to lean toward making a fashion statement, it’s best to stay true to yourself.

3 Signs You Haven’t Found The Right Wedding Dress In Cape Town Yet

Finding the perfect dress is tougher than one might imagine. The dress you have in mind might not suit your body type or the colour you like might not complement your skin tone. Nevertheless, when you start your hunt for the perfect wedding dress in Cape Town, beware of these signs that the one you select isn’t really the one you should wear.

Everyone loves it but you

Just because your best friend and mom thinks it’s the right dress, doesn’t mean it’s the one you have to pick. Make sure you feel comfortable in it or else put it back on the rack. If you like it but aren’t 100% sure, take some time to think about it before making your final decision. Wedding dresses are an investment and a decision to not take lightly.

It’s not the right size

Buying a dress that’s too small because you intend to lose the weight or buying one that’s too big because it’s on sale is never a good idea. If you have to do major altercations, it will change the shape and design of the dress. If you would like to lose some weight before the wedding, maybe consider a dress with a corset back that can be easily adjusted.

It’s on sale

Yes, you love a good bargain but when it comes to your wedding dress you might want to be an extra bit cautious about trying to save a few bucks. Make sure you really love the dress and it fits you well before you buy it. Other things to look out for are stains and flaws – wedding dresses don’t go on sale for no reason.
