Short or tall, petite or buxom, you deserve a wedding dress that makes dreams come true!

Every bride deserves to look like a princess on her wedding day. It’s a dream so many of us have had since we were little girls imagining the day we’d find our Prince Charming.

Well, you must have found your Prince Charming if you’ve started falling in love with wedding dresses you’ve pinned on your board, which means you’re in for an exciting journey to the dress of your dreams.

Every woman has an innate beauty that deserves to shine on her wedding day, but to get there means finding the wedding dress that makes the most of your natural assets.

Doing research into the right silhouettes before you go for your first fitting is going to be a fantastic start to your wedding dress shopping experience.

Let’s look different body shapes to get an idea of what to look for in your perfect wedding dress.

Pear:

A pear shaped body generally means that you’ve narrow shoulders with wider hips, bottom and thighs.

The best silhouettes for you to look at is the A-line dress, which delicately shimmies over your hips and bottom.  A strapless wedding gown is also a great option for narrow shoulders, while intricate, sparkling waist details will draw attention away from your bottom.

A dropped-waist wedding dress is also a great choice for placing the emphasis on the upper half of your body.

Apple:

If you’re larger in the bust and mid-section but have skinny legs, you’ll look great in something like a sweetheart neckline and a V-neckline. This lets you make the most of your awesome assets!

You might as well have some fun showing off your legs as well by looking at shorter dresses.

Athletic:

If you’ve an athletic straight from the top to bottom shape, you will have the option of showing off a fuller-style dress, unless you’d like to keep it slim line, in which case a one-shoulder neckline or sweetheart neckline will create the look of a fuller bust.

Full figure:

Voluptuous and curvy can be shown to stunning effect in a trumpet or mermaid style, creating a slimming effect while highlighting the beauty of your curves.  You’d also look beautiful in an A-line dress with a low neckline to celebrate your natural assets!

Hourglass:

Your curvaceous bust and hips that meet at a small waistline are perfectly designed to sparkle in a beautifully fitted fishtail wedding dress. A sweetheart neckline is also a great idea if you’d like to highlight your assets in a tasteful, understated style.

With a shape like this you can add touches like sashes and belts to highlight those beautiful curves!

Trying on a dress you’ve fallen in love with but doesn’t do anything for your shape isn’t a road you want to go down.  You’ll need a few hankies for the tears that this could cause.

Here’s what you need to know before you start trying on wedding dresses.

Being prepared in advance is going to make shopping for your wedding dress a lot easier than it would be otherwise.

If you’ve already scoured bridal magazines and bookmarked wedding dresses online, you’re on the right track for stress-free success.

How to prepare for the journey to your dream wedding dress:

Undergarments:

The last thing you want is to get to your wedding day only to find that the bra you’re wearing spoils the fit of the beautiful wedding dress you’ll be wearing!

The right bra can make all the difference.  A strapless bra, or one with clear straps is one of the best investments you’ll make towards finding the perfect wedding dress.

To look like a princess you need to feel like one, inside out, and feeling like a princess starts with comfort in what you’re wearing, which leads to the confidence any glowing bride deserves to feel on her special day.

Shoes:

If you’re planning on wearing heels, make sure the heel you wear to the fitting will be the same height as what you’ll wear on your wedding day. If you try to do the fitting with flat shoes it’ll spoil the visual effect of every dress, even the one you fall in love with!

It’s pointless going to fittings with flat shoes if you’re going to be wearing high heels, and vice versa.

Makeup:

Makeup is a must, no matter how little you wear.  Fluorescent lights shining down on a sea of white satin and lace will make you see any minor flaws and shadows under your eyes that aren’t normally visible to you.

You don’t have to plaster the makeup on, just enough to make you feel good and give you colour in the brilliant white of a bridal shop.

Hair:

When you start going to fittings, try to wear your hair as close to what you’re planning to wear on your wedding day.  The makeup and hair combined will make a big difference to the way you see yourself in all the dresses you’ll try on.  It’s worth the effort, especially when you get to the day when you fall totally in love with the dress you know is a resounding yes!

The fitting:

Once you start trying on wedding dresses, make sure you try them out for comfort.  The last thing you want is to be completely uncomfortable on the day should shine like a princess!

Sit, twirl and take a ‘pretend’ walk down the aisle before you say yes to a dress that’ll make any of this nigh on impossible.

Choose the team you’ll share this momentous journey with care:

Finding your dream wedding dress should one day be a wonderful memory, which is why it’s important that you find a bridal shop that’ll make you feel right at home from the first fitting.

If you’re looking for a wedding dress in Cape Town, you’re in the right place.  The team at Ever After Bridal are professionals who absolutely love what they do, and they’ve been doing it for many years.

5 Tips that’ll make your wedding dress shopping experience hassle-free.

As you launch into wedding dress shopping, you’re probably going to feel all tingly about looking like the princess you always dreamed of as a little girl, and that’s what the whole experience should feel like.

So much goes into planning the actual wedding that shopping for your dress should be as exciting and stress-free as possible, the real cherry on top of planning other minute details.

To make your wedding dress shopping experience more fun than stressful, there’re a few things you need to be on the lookout for, before you make your first booking for fittings.

Try these tips; you’ll be surprised at how the small things influence the experience:

Research:

Get an idea of the style and mood you’d like to reflect when you find the ‘yes’ dress.  There are online bridal magazines galore, so dive right in and save as many of the ones you love as reference for when start shopping.

Once you have a silhouette and style in mind, Ever After Bridal will help you to find the right wedding dress to match your ideas.

Browse through the Ever After Bridal portfolio that include the names of designers like Maggie Sottero, Enzoani, Rebecca Ingram and Sophia Tolli.

Without a doubt you’ll find the wedding dress of your dreams waiting for you in these collections.

While research is going to make the shopping experience a lot more focussed, try not to close your mind to all other options.  You may just miss out on that special dress you never even considered.

Budget:

Yep, budget! Though every bride would love to have free licence with the credit card, most brides need to think about what to budget for when shopping for a wedding dress.

Don’t make the mistake of trying on and falling in love with a wedding dress that’s way out of budget, all it’ll cause is heartache and tears when what you really should be doing is having fun.

The team at Ever After Bridal will make sure that you don’t go down that road. More than anything, they want your time spent with them to remain as one of the best memories of your life!

Planning:

Give yourself the time to try on, buy and fit your wedding dress at a stress-free pace.  Starting the journey around six months before the big day will give you a sense of peace, knowing that when you arrive to collect it, all the nipping and tucking will have been done.

Many stories, many brides:

Every bride that’s gone before you will have a story to tell you. Some will have had an awesome experience, then there’ll be those who’ll terrify you with horror stories about their experience.

Choose your experience with an open mind and it’ll be exactly what you dreamed it would be.

Entourage:

Even if friends and family are going to feel snubbed, try to limit your entourage to no more than three honest, true friends or family members.  Too many opinions are definitely going to confuse you and cloud your judgement.

It’s your wedding dress, no one else is wearing it but you so make your stand!

Ever After Bridal will make that stand with you, through all your choices and fittings, until finally they can celebrate the day you fall in love with the vision looking back at you in the mirror.
