Tips from brides who have already taken the journey to finding the perfect wedding dress!

From the day the engagement is official, everything becomes a whirl, there are going to be plenty moments of flying high on feelings of joy and excitement, and there are going to be more than a few moments that will make you feel like tearing your hair out and throwing a tantrum in the corner, but, nothing can take away from the fact that you are about to have your dreams come true in the arms of your Prince Charming at the end of it all!

Many of your friends are going to have opinions about everything from the kind of venue, how big or small your wedding should be, the best season for it blah di blah di blah, but most of all, they are all going to have their own stories about their search for that dream wedding dress – some will tell you it was a nightmare experience, and, if you are really lucky, some will tell you it was a really great experience – word of advice – ignore them all!

Here are a few things brides who have taken the journey you are starting out on to find your perfect wedding dress have to say, the kind of points that make sense no matter how you look at it, so that you don’t make the same mistakes as they did:

  • Taking a crowd with you is not going to make your choices any easier! In fact, too many opinions are going to have you reaching for more than just one glass of champagne during fittings! Limit your entourage to two special people who have very different personalities – make sure one is a brutally honest (but loving) friend, or your mom (as long as she isn’t biased!), and then make sure you have someone sensitive enough to be the perfect foil for the brutal honesty!  Everyone else can wait for the big day!
  • You may well find that you end up with a dress that is completely different to the style you had already decided on – odds are that keeping an open mind is going to cause you a lot less stress, and it’s going to be a whole lot more fun!
  • Only start looking for your wedding dress when you know the wedding date is set and the venue is booked – you can either freeze or perspire your way through the wedding if you don’t plan around the venue and the season! If, for instance, you have decided on a late afternoon/early evening wedding, making sure that a bolero jacket accompanies your dress to keep the chill at bay!
  • Whatever you do, make sure that you go to a bridal store like Ever After Bridal so that you have a seamstress right at your side through all your fittings, it’s a decision you will never regret!
  • There are a lot more words of wisdom that make life a little easier for brides starting out on the wedding dress hunt without causing further confusion, but, as a final one here, make sure that whatever you do, you wear the bra you are going to be wearing on your wedding day!
  • Oh, and bring your wedding shoes along too, facing your wedding day in a dress that is too long or too short is not going to make it the happy day you so deserve!

Steps to finding the wedding dress of your dreams from Ever After Bridal.

If possible, and if you are not on a tight schedule, try to start your search about nine months before your wedding day.  This will give you enough time to plan any alterations with the Ever After Bridal team. Bear in mind that if you are planning on adding beading or lace, or even changing up the neckline or train, it will take a little longer.  If you are pressured for time, speak to Ever After Bridal, there is always a solution to make sure every bride looks like a princess on her wedding day!

All the designer wedding dresses at the Ever After Bridal stores in Durbanville and Nelspruit are available to rent or buy, making it a little easier for you if push comes to shove in terms of time.

Make sure you come up with a realistic budget that will take into account any alterations you may want, fees that can always be discussed with the team at Ever After Bridal so that they can assist you to say yes and celebrate the day you find your dream wedding dress, knowing you have planned well in terms of your budget.

Before you actually go shopping for the perfect wedding dress at Ever After Bridal, take a look at the outline of the dresses you are interested in.  These wedding dress silhouettes fall into a few broad categories such as the ball gown, A-line, fit-and-flare, sheath and mermaid, among others.

It may be a good idea to try one of each the first time you go shopping for your wedding gown; it will make it a lot easier to start from a shape you know works best for you, making it less stressful to narrow down your choices from the beautiful designer dresses at Ever After Bridal.

Other important considerations on your way to the perfect wedding dress is to limit how many people you bring along, how you would like your wedding dress to make you feel, from sexy to understated or Victorian and anything in-between.

Make sure you take comfort into account, to look like a princess on your wedding day means you need to have the confidence to feel it in a dress easy to move around in, and whatever you do, make sure that in the end you choose a dress that is right for you and for no one else!

Remember that colour makes a difference when you are shopping for your dream wedding dress!

Once you have narrowed down the silhouette, mood and personal style of your dream wedding dress with the caring guidance of the team at Ever After Bridal at your side, you will need to start thinking about colour.

The colour of your dress will contribute as much to feeling confident and beautiful on your wedding day as the comfort, silhouette and mood will, and the hue of the fabric will do the same for your colouring.

The designer wedding dresses chosen by the team at Ever After Bridal have been selected from renowned designers such as Maggi Sottero, Enzoani and Sophia Tolli, and there is a variety of colours that cross the spectrum from bright white to creamy ivory or even bold pinks for you to choose from, taking into account your skin tone.

Choosing the right colour wedding dress will accentuate and complement your skin tone, as an example, whiter dresses may wash out those with fair skin, which means that you might need to look at something with a warmer ivory tone.

The passionate team at Ever After Bridal will assist you to try on different shades of white or colour until you find the hue perfect for you.  No doubt Ever After Bridal will make sure that you will be able to see what your dress looks like in natural light and indoor lighting, as this does have an effect on how the colour looks!

Your wedding dress represents the uniqueness of you, and by putting your best foot forward during trying on dresses, you will be able to truly asses how you feel in the wedding dress and how you will look on the wedding day, so if you feel great in curls, makeup and high heels or in clear lip gloss and flats, go for it, it will make it a lot easier to visualise the whole effect!

Remember, buying or renting your dream wedding dress from Ever After Bridal is an emotional decision so make sure you shop feeling like the best possible version of yourself!  No matter what the journey takes, you will have a phenomenal team at your side to guide and support you when you start the journey at Ever After Bridal!
