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.

Don’t walk down the aisle wearing the wrong dress. Let the team at Ever After Bridal help you feel like a princess on your wedding day. Book your appointment today!


Things to think about before you say yes to your wedding dress!

Your wedding dress is probably going to be the most expensive dress you ever wear, adding extra pressure to an already daunting experience, but, there are a few factors that, if neatly put together, can make the whole experience a lot less challenging….. and you’ll still end up with the wedding dress of your dreams.

One of the first things you need to start doing is to rip through magazines, scrounge through online wedding catalogues and maybe even have a look at the styles some of our celebrities are wearing, anything really to put enough ideas together to find a common theme among the dresses that have caught your eye.

Look at all the dresses that have caught your eye to see if you can find a common denominator in terms of style and any of the frills that are a recurring theme among these dresses.  Be prepared though, you may go in to the bridal salon with one idea and find that you fall in love with a dress that is completely different to what you imagined! Always a good idea to keep an open mind if possible!

The next major step is to find a bridal salon that not only carries a beautiful range of wedding dress, but one in which you will be treated like the princess you are, which is where Ever After Bridal comes in!

The reputation for service excellence this passionate team has earned in the six years they have been dressing brides is one that is well deserved, they give each bride the personal attention that is needed to find a wedding dress they will always love, and the support we all need on a journey this important!

Ever After Bridal has the most beautiful ranges of designer wedding dresses for sale in Durbanville and Nelspruit, and have been wise enough to add the hiring of wedding dresses into the mix to make life a lot easier for many brides who choose to hire instead of buy.

Looking at the portfolio of wedding dresses online at Ever After Bridal will give you a ton of inspiration across ranges designed by Enzoani, Sophia Tolli, Maggie Sottero and Rebecca Ingram, a new addition to the Maggie Sottero stable of designers – somewhere in one of these exquisite ranges of wedding dresses is the dress fit for your wedding!

A few other important things to think about is the mood, time of day and venue for your wedding, it’s not like you are going to have a beach wedding wearing a ball gown, and the season is also going to feature very strongly in how you make the cut to get to the dress you can say yes to unequivocally!

It’s never easy or comfortable, but, putting your budget in place is going to be a very important consideration before you start shopping for your dress, and it’s not just going to be the dress you need to budget for, the added frills, veils and other heavenly additions to your dress are also going to need to fit into that budget neatly.

Allowing the team from Ever After Bridal to take the journey with you to your dream wedding dress is going to be one of the easier decisions you’ll need to make, they will stand by and guide you every step of the way until the day you collect the dress that will make you feel like a princess on your wedding day.  Ever After Bridal is committed to giving you the individual attention you deserve to make your dreams come true, it is what they love doing and they do it well!

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!

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!
