What not to do in the week leading up to your wedding!

By the time you start planning your wedding, even before you get to your wedding dress, you’ll find yourself faced with a bunch of dos and don’ts that’ll make it all a little easier, however, the list of what not to do in the week leading up to your wedding is very important.

The major reason behind some of these ‘don’ts’ is that you’re probably already a jumble of nerves and working hard to avoid a meltdown of any kind at this late stage of the game, and this is when it’s easier to make mistakes that will be to your detriment.

Here’s what not to do in the week leading up to the wedding:

Please don’t try a new hairstyle!

The hairstyle you’ve worn to all your fittings should be the one you wear on your wedding day. By the time it gets to the final week it could be a major mistake to fiddle with your hairstyle. Why? Well, it could be a flop, or, it could change the look you wanted in your wedding dress, the one that looked so good at fittings!

Even trying out new hair products can have a negative impact on your hair. Stick to what you know at this crucial stage of the wedding plans!

Don’t try new skin care products!

If you decide to change skin care products in the week leading up to your wedding you could be looking at breaking out into rashes or, even worse if possible, finding pimples glowing back at you in the mirror!

This is definitely a good time to stick to what your skin loves, so that you glow as you say your vows on your big day!

Stick to your tried and tested workout routine

If you want to glide down the aisle gracefully don’t try to work your legs or butt too hard if it’s not part of your usual workout, it could see you gingerly making your way to the altar in great pain!

Stick to what your body is used to and you’ll do the graceful thing with absolute ease! We don’t want you wincing in pain on your way to say your vows!

Self-tanning methods or trying to catch a quick tan in the sun is a very bad idea!

You don’t want your beautiful skin to be peeling as you walk down the aisle, nor do you want to look like the Oros man after trying to use instant tanning products on your skin; a tan can wait for the honeymoon!

A tanning specialist is your best bet if you want to be absolutely sure that you’ll glow on your wedding day, and not because you’re a bright orange colour!

Say no to too much caffeine!

If you’ve got butterflies that aren’t flying in formation in this final week, you can be sure that they’ll be even less so if you fuel up on too much caffeine, which actually only serves to make the nerves even more sensitive.

Get plenty of sleep no matter how tough it is!

We know it’s virtually impossible to sleep peacefully in the build-up to the big day, but make a deal with yourself to make sure you get the requisite seven to eight hours a night! This is a sure recipe to helping you look like a dream princess on your wedding day.

Be frugal with wine consumption!

If ever there was a time for you to try and still your nerves with a glass or two of your favourite wine, now’s the time. However, if you go over the glass or two limit, you’re skin will be dehydrated, which is the last thing you want if you want to be a glowing bride!

No doubt, if you’ve chosen the team at Ever After Bridal Wear for the journey to the designer wedding dress you’ll be wearing as you glide down the aisle, you’ll have had more than enough professional and caring tips to make you look and feel like a princess on your wedding day!

Tips for making the hunt for a dream designer dress stress-free

Well, it may not be quite stress free, considering that this is a dress you’ve been dreaming about for who knows how long on the way to saying yes to your beloved at the altar, and also a dress you’ll only wear once!

It is a daunting prospect, shopping for a dress you’ll only wear once, but, there are things you can do to make it a lot more fun than you may imagine and make it a lot more exciting too!

Here are a few tips for making shopping for a dream designer wedding dress stress-free:

Know your body shape

The most important thing about your wedding dress is that it should highlight and accentuate all that is beautiful about the natural shape of your body, whether you’re short and petit or curvy in all the right places!

This is why it’s important to learn a little about different wedding dress silhouettes wherever you can, whether online or in bridal magazines and at bridal shows.

This cuts down on a lot of anxiety ahead of your first fittings.

Are you a little short on time?

No matter how little time you have left to find a wedding dress, the team at Ever After Bridal Wear has you covered, top to toe! How? By making it possible for you to hire a stunning designer wedding dress straight of the racks in their beautiful bridal wear store, that’s how!

Hiring a designer wedding dress has become a growing trend, and it goes a long way in our economic downturn towards feathering the nest for the new life you’ll be starting with your husband-to-be…or for a dream honeymoon!

Start early if you do have the luxury of time

It doesn’t matter how organised you are, once you see what’s out there in terms of wedding dresses in online catalogues and other sources, you’re probably going to be in a bit of a tizzy, to say the least, when it comes to narrowing down your options.

Having 6 to 9 months on your hands is awesome, and it’ll give you plenty of breathing space to shop for your dress in the run up to your wedding, which takes a lot of stress out of the experience.

Highlight your natural skin tone

For brides who look washed out in ice white, things have changed for the better in terms of wedding dresses in every other colour than just white! You’ll find that you have a choice of everything from dove grey to champagne, salmon to cerise or shades of blue and dusky pink to perfectly highlight your natural skin tone, so that you’ll glow on your wedding day!

Taking these points into account, the team at Ever After Bridal Wear will guide you with their considerable experience and passion for what they do to your dream designer wedding dress, giving you the undivided attention you deserve on an epic journey such as this.

This team wants nothing more than to see you through the journey towards making your dreams come true, and to make sure that the dress you wear will celebrate everything that is beautiful and unique about you as an individual!

Book a fitting today with this team to take the journey to your dream wedding dress in the hands of people who really care about what you will look like and feel like on your special day!

Will your wedding dress be an extension of your personality & style?

The wedding dress you fall in love with is nothing less than the final thread that pulls everything about your wedding day together in a perfect expression of unity with the décor, venue and theme of your wedding, but, even more than that, it should be the perfect expression of who you really are as an individual.

Everything about your personality and unique style will be on public display on this most important day of your life, but most of all, it’ll be the vivid image of beauty your groom will be following with his eyes and his heart, which will be an image he will never forget, and, like any woman, you want to be a vision of beauty for him at the altar.

Here are a few ideas to reflect on about what you’re hoping for in your wedding dress:

Do you want to express your innate creativity?

If this is the case, well, then you can get away with just about anything! You can combine unlikely fabrics and colours, especially if there’s that touch of the Bohemian beauty in you. Mix up a little leather with the lace or combine a bit of the old and the new to give free reign to your uniqueness.

Do you want to express your love of the dramatic?

If you have a penchant for drama, take a look at the styles, colours and fabrics that are being shown on the catwalks internationally today, especially when it comes to choosing not to wear white.

Colour is everywhere in terms of wedding dresses today, and if you choose to create a dramatic effect that highlights your colouring by wearing a cerise pink wedding dress, well then go for it!

Do you want to express your timeless elegance?

Nothing is as timeless as the femininity of an elegant, understated wedding gown, and if this is who you are, you’ll find something that tells the story beautifully in one of the designer wedding dresses at Ever After Bridal Wear in Cape Town.

Do you want to express your love of romance?

This is where you get to look like the real Cinderella on your wedding day, floating down the aisle in frothy fabrics in layers of luxurious dreaminess, and nothing can do romance better than a ball gown can, sparkling with beautiful embellishments that catch the light everywhere you turn.

Do you want to express a spirit of modern magic?

If you love taking the fashion-forward route then you’ll thoroughly enjoy fitting dresses with shorter hemlines, or dresses that are designed with casual fabrics sporting sheer panels and delightful appliqué that’ll express your contemporary style!

A last thought!

No matter what your wedding dress says about your unique personality and style, it’s important to take into account the season, venue and theme of your wedding, so that it will all seamlessly resonate all that you and your future husband are as a unit on your wedding day.

It isn’t always a case of falling in love at first sight

As much as you’ve probably had to kiss a few frogs along the way to your prince charming, it’ll be a good idea not to cling to the idea that you’ll fall in love with the dress you end up wearing at first sight.

Sometimes it’ll be the dress that starts to grow on you that finally determines the one you’ll truly love enough to say yes to!

State your budget in no uncertain terms

It’s essential that you share your budget with the team at Ever After Bridal Wear at the outset, as this is the best possible way of remaining focussed on dresses you can afford to fit and discard, and ignoring the others with their siren call that is way above your budget!

Choose comfort and beauty

The team at Ever After Bridal Wear will advise you to take a twirl or two in each dress you fit, to sit in it and to walk in it, all in an effort to make sure that you’ll be a bride that exudes absolute confidence generated by feeling comfortable in your precious dress.

Leave losing weight for another time

If you’re planning to fit dresses that are tight on you because you’re hoping to lose weight before the big day, you’re putting more pressure on yourself than you need. On top of this, letting out a dress later is going to add to the costs, if it’s even possible to let it out.

The point is to celebrate your beauty just as you are on your wedding day. Your husband-to-be loves you as you are, so don’t do this to yourself! You’ll be just as beautiful in the right style of wedding dress, with the right silhouette, as you may have imagined you’d be if you lost a few kilos!

The most important thing to the awesome team at Ever After Bridal is that that you’ll look like a princess on your wedding day, and that the dress you choose will celebrate all that is uniquely beautiful about you and your personal style!

Know your body shape before you shop for a wedding dress

You could be headed for disappointment if you don’t take into account your body shape and natural assets when you start shopping for a wedding dress.

Choosing the wrong silhouette and style will be a great help to you. It’ll be difficult for you to look at other styles if you’ve set your heart on a particular one, such as an A-line dress, and then have to head in another direction.

Every woman is beautiful and your body shape is uniquely yours, which means it deserves to be celebrated in a wedding dress that highlights everything about your natural body shape and style.

You’ll find that you have to wade through a broad selection of the basic wedding dress silhouettes and styles before you find the right ones for your body shape, which will include styles like empire, ball gown, fishtail or A-line, to mention a few, which makes it worth learning a little about the language of wedding dress silhouettes and specific body types.

A few examples of wedding dress silhouettes and styles:

Ball gown style

Wearing a ball gown will flatter your pear-shape body and flatter brides who are busty. A ball gown will also add curves to a boyish figure, however, if you’re on the petite side, you’ll get lost in the layers and volume of this style of wedding dress.

A-line style

This is another silhouette that flatters a pear-shaped body, narrowing at the top and flaring down to the ground.  If you have a lean, athletic shape, you’ll find that this style can contribute to a curvier, more feminine look for your wedding day.

Sheath Style

The sheath is simplicity at its best. Falling from the shoulders straight to the waist this style does give you a few options where it comes to the waistline, but this you can discuss with the team at Ever After Bridal Wear.

Empire Style

A fitted bodice and waistline lies above the natural waistline, if you’re petite, this style with its loosely fitted skirt is perfect for you. If you’re very curvy, this won’t be a good fit for you though.

Mermaid Style

Slim and tailored, this style of wedding dress with a skirt that hugs your curves will make your hourglass figure look stunning!

When it comes to making sure you wear the right style and silhouette to turn you into a princess on your wedding day, it can sometimes get confusing, in which case, the team at Ever After Bridal Wear will be happy to show you how to make the most of your natural body shape!

This awesome team of bridal consultants in Cape Town want nothing more than to see to it that you enjoy the journey to finding your dream designer dress, so, book a fitting today to find out more about the style that’ll accentuate your body shape and natural beauty on your wedding day!

A few tips to keep in mind when you shop for a wedding dress

There’s no doubt that your choice of wedding dress is going to be the result of one of the biggest decisions you’ll ever make, and, it’ll be for one magical day that will see the culmination of your dreams of exchanging vows with your husband-to-be.

The decision you make will be one that lingers for a lifetime in your wedding album, which is enough to cause great stress and tension at the start of your hunt for the dress of your dreams!

At Ever After Bridal Wear in Cape Town, you’ll meet a passionate team who are dedicated to making the experience of shopping for a wedding dress an exciting one, with a minimum of stress on the way to making your dreams come true.

Here are a few tips to keep in mind when you shop for a wedding dress in Cape Town:

Locking down the venue will help in your search for the perfect dress

Shopping for your dream designer wedding dress is actually made easier if you’ve settled on the venue and locked down the booking. It helps you to imagine the style of dress that would suit the venue and the theme you decide on for the big day.

Decide on the theme of your wedding day

If you have decided to have a theme for your wedding, and you’ve locked down the venue, you’ll find it’s a great advantage when it comes to fitting the right style of wedding dress to bring it all together.

Do your homework before heading for fittings

Doing your homework into different styles of wedding dresses, which should start at least 6 to 9 months ahead of time will simplify your choices. Narrowing down those choices as much as possible will make it even easier to find the perfect wedding dress, once you start fittings.

Choose the right silhouette for your body shape

When you know more about what shape or style of wedding dress will enhance your natural assets and play down anything you’re not comfy with in terms of your body shape, you’ll be well on the way to finding the perfect silhouette to make the most of your natural assets.

Choosing the right style and silhouette also serves to make sure that you’ll be comfortable in your dress on your big day, which will go a long way to boosting your confidence on the day too.

Take the season of your wedding into account

It’s essential that you figure in the season you’ll be getting married in when fitting on dresses.  If it’s an outdoor summer wedding you’re planning on, then you may need to think about adding something light to your shoulders to avoid sunburn.

If you’ve chosen to get married in winter, add a faux fur stole or a matching wrap and gloves to make sure you don’t shiver all the way through your wedding day!

Take the journey to a dream designer wedding dress with Ever After Bridal

The team at Ever After Bridal Store would love to meet you and join you on your journey to a dream designer wedding dress in Cape Town.

What you can look forward to is having a team on your side that have the benefit of many years worth of experience under the belt to share with you, as you make your way through beautiful designer wedding dresses from international designers Maggie Sottero and Rebecca Ingram!

What statement will you be making in your choice of wedding dress?

The wedding dress you choose will be an extension of your personality and style, which is why it’s so essential to have a good idea of how you’d like it all to come together on your wedding day as perfectly as you’ve planned!

The main thing to keep in mind on your hunt for the wedding dress of your dreams is that no one else gets to choose the dress for you, no matter how important they are to you.

Some may balk at the idea of you in a wedding dress that tells everyone about the Gypsy in you, or perhaps even wearing a short wedding dress in a funky colour with a denim jacket, but pay them no attention, after all, it’s your wedding!

If you’ve always imagined yourself in a ball gown, looking like a princess as you start down the aisle, you will bring that image to life in the romanticism of a dramatic dress.

The most important thing is for you to be comfortable enough in your wedding dress to glow with confidence and beauty on your wedding day. Don’t choose a dress that’ll be torture to wear for as long as it’ll take on the day!

At Ever After Bridal Wear in Durbanville, Cape Town, you’ll come face to face with an awesome team that’ll take you step by step through every fitting, standing by to guide you until you find the dress that calls your name.

This is a bridal store in Cape Town where you’ll find great support on every level as you face the ultimate challenge of finding a dream designer wedding dress, giving you the undivided attention you deserve on an epic journey like this!

Ultimately, your wedding dress should be the perfect expression of who you are, as an individual and as a bride!

Knowing that this will more than likely be the most expensive dress you’ll ever wear, the ladies at Ever After Bridal Wear put all their care, passion for what they do and their experience at your disposal, as you fit dress after dress, until you find the one you fall in love with!

The advice from this team is to make sure that aside from what your dress expresses about your sense of style and personality, that you’ll be comfortable in it. They offer this advice because they know that a comfortable bride is a confident on, and they want you to look radiant on your wedding day!

Talking about looking radiant; bear in mind that some brides look washed out in an ice white wedding dress, and today you have an amazing range of colours available in wedding dresses, whether you go for champagne, dove grey or shocking pink, go out on a limb if you need to, to wear a dress that makes the most of your skin tone!

Join the team at Ever After Bridal Wear to find a stunning designer wedding dress made to express exactly who you are, in fabulous, individual style!
