3 Signs you’re not ready to say yes to the dress!

Finding the perfect dress is tougher than one might imagine, especially if you’ve been told a few horror stories courtesy of other brides. The dress you have in mind might not suit your body type or the colour you like may not do any justice to your skin tone. Nevertheless, as you start hunting down the perfect designer wedding dress in Cape Town, these signs will tell you that you’re just not ready to say yes to the dress yet!

Everyone loves it but you

Just because your besty or your mom thinks it’s the right dress, doesn’t mean you have to settle for it. If you’re not happy or comfortable in it, put it back on the rack. If you like it but aren’t 100% sure, mull it over before you make a final decision. Buying a designer wedding dress is a major investment and definitely not a decision to be taken lightly.

It’s not the right size

Buying a dress that’s a wee bit on the tight side because you intend to lose the weight before the wedding is never a good idea! You’ll simply be adding extra stress onto fully loaded shoulders planning the wedding! If you do manage to lose weight and the dress you’ve chosen is loose it’ll be a cinch to take it in without major altercations. If you’re determined and would really like to lose some weight before the wedding, perhaps it would be best to consider a dress with a corset back that can be easily adjusted.

It’s on sale

Yep, we all 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 if it doesn’t end up being your real dream dress. 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, however, when Ever After Bridal has second-hand designer wedding dresses on sale, you can bet your bottom dollar the dress will be in pristine condition!

Let the team at Ever After Bridal assist you to find the dress that makes you look and feel like a princess on your wedding day, book your appointment today and begin the journey to a stunning designer wedding dress!

A few points to ponder before you say yes to the dress!

Your wedding dress is arguably more than likely going to be the most expensive dress you ever wear, which adds extra pressure to an already daunting choice. However, there are a few factors that, if neatly put together, can make the whole experience a lot less challenging, and still bring you to the wedding dress of your dreams.

One of the first things you need to do is to mosey through bridal magazines, scrounge through online collections, and perhaps even have a look at the styles some of our celebrities are wearing. It’s about putting put enough ideas together to find a common theme among the dresses that catch your breath.

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 aware though that you may start fittings with one idea in mind and find that you fall in love with a dress that is completely different to what you’d imagined! Give yourself the latitude to keep an open mind going in.

The next major step is to find a bridal store that only carries the best in designer wedding dresses, one in which you will be treated like the princess you are, which is where Ever After Bridal Wear comes in!

The reputation for service excellence this passionate team has earned in over 10 years is one that is well deserved. They give each bride the personal attention she deserves to find a wedding dress to fall in love with, and the support we all need on a journey this important!

Ever After Bridal Wear in Cape Town has a stunning range of designer wedding dresses for sale in Durbanville, and have been wise enough to add the option of being able to hire a designer wedding dress into the mix, making 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 loads of inspiration across ranges designed by 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 you’ve dreamed of!

Ever After Bridal has a whole team on hand to deal with fittings and alterations, and, while working hand in glove with you, will produce a dress that you will love, not just for your wedding day, but for all the years your dress will be on view in your wedding album!

A few other important things to think about is the mood, time of day and venue for your wedding. It’s not as if you’re going to have a beach wedding wearing a ball gown after all, and the season will also feature very heavily in how you make the cut to get to the dress you can say yes to unequivocally!

While most of us avoid the word ‘budget’ for something this special, but, putting your budget in place is going to be a very important consideration before you start shopping for your dress. Remember that it’s not just 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.

Pitfalls to avoid when shopping for your dream wedding dress

Shopping for your dream wedding dress should be a time of excitement, magic and wonder, however, it can also be rather nerve wrecking if you make some of the mistakes many first-time brides have made, mistakes that can spoil what should be a fairy princess dream come true!

If it’s at all possible, get yourself ready, organised and well-researched in advance of shopping for your dress.  The best plan is to start your homework five to nine months in advance of your wedding. This is just to make sure that any and all alterations that may be needed will be ready on time.

The theme of your wedding is going to be a big deciding factor in how you approach moving in the right direction to find your dream wedding dress; if you’ve dreamed of a frothy, floating ball gown or a glittering mermaid style wedding dress, make sure it suits the theme, season and time of day for the wedding.  This is far too important a day to end up unhappy and uncomfortable in your wedding dress!

Knowing a little about the language attached to wedding dresses, such as understanding the different dress styles – such as A-line, mermaid, column, fish-tale and more will stand you in good stead. It will also help you to get an idea of the many necklines available, which would include terms like square, V and halter. Understanding and knowing a little about this terminology and which suits you best is going to make your journey to that dream dress a tad easier in the long run.

Whatever you do, 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 dreamed of being!

Don’t even think about choosing accessories like a veil before you find the dress!  You may just find that nothing matches by the time you’ve fitted and discarded many dresses before you find 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 will mean a lot along the way. This team offers solid advice based on their experience and on their knowledge of the beautiful range of designer wedding dresses available to lighten your load along the way.

Remaining open to experienced advice from a passionate team makes narrowing down your choices of style, colour and accessories a lot simpler than trying to do it on your own. It’s about having true professional advice and guidance, rather than having 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

The team at Ever After Bridal would love to meet you and guide you to find the wedding dress perfectly suited to your figure, personality and style, so that they get to share in your joy and pleasure when you stand facing yourself in the mirror wearing the wedding dress of your dreams!

Being comfy in your wedding dress will make you supremely confident on your wedding day

You’ve dreamed of your fairy-tale wedding since you were a little girl, imagining your prince charming transfixed by the vision you’ll be as you approach him down the aisle, taking his breath away, but none of us thought about the practicalities that would come about when we finally found our prince charming and have to start shopping for the dress!

You may find yourself bombarded with questions like; are you going with a fish tale, ball gown, dramatic or super sexy dress? Or; ‘what colour will suit your complexion best’. There’ll also be questions about the shoes and underwear you’ll be wearing – none of this featured in any of those little-girl fantasies, that’s for sure!

The reality is a lot different to the daydreaming, and, without the support of a bridal shop that offers everything from stunning designer dresses to a team able to deal with all the alterations, nips, tucks, frills and laces to be added, it can be more difficult than need be.

This is what the team at Ever After Bridal is dedicated to; making the journey to the perfect wedding dress one where every bride has the full support and undivided attention of people who do what they love most, turning brides into princesses!

If anyone can make finding your dream wedding dress a lot more fun and a lot less stress, then this team can! Having dressed many brides in the ten years since they opened their doors, this team has maintained a single minded determination to bring the greatest joy to each bride they journey with.

Before we go into why it’s essential for you to be absolutely comfortable in your wedding dress, it needs to be pointed out that Ever After Bridal has the most exquisite range of designer wedding dresses to hire or buy, giving every bride, with every budget in mind, the opportunity to wear the best on her wedding day.

Designers Maggie Sottero and her latest discovery, Rebecca Ingram are names that fill the top rungs of wedding gown designers worldwide, and not for nothing, as you’ll find if you take the time to explore the online portfolio of their creations at Ever After Bridal!

There’s nothing worse than wearing any outfit, for any occasion, that’s so uncomfortable you can’t wait to get home and rip it off, and to do this with your wedding dress is going to be even worse!

The practicalities of being able to sit, dance or even go to the bathroom all need to be checked as you try on and discard dresses – if you can barely move or breathe in your wedding dress, you’re going to be more focused on the discomfort than on the priceless beauty of this once-in-a-lifetime day. You may even feel like wincing every time you look at the dress in your wedding album!

You deserve far better than that, so, choose a style that enhances everything that is unique about you, from your shape to your colouring, but do it so that you’re comfortable enough to radiate a confidence that will make you shine brighter than a diamond on your wedding day!

Contact the team at Ever After Bridal to be a warm shoulder of support and wise voice of experience, driven by passion as you work towards making your dreams a reality!

Tips from brides to help you shop for your wedding dress

From the day the engagement is official, everything becomes a whirl of activities to get ready for your wedding day! There are going to be many manic moments of flying high on feelings of joy and excitement, and, there’ll also be more than a few moments that’ll make you feel like tearing your hair out and throwing a tantrum in the corner.

Remember through this all though, nothing can take away from the fact that you’re about to have your dreams come true in the arms of your Prince Charming at the end of it all!

Many 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’re all going to have their own stories about what their experience of shopping for the dress was like. 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’ve taken the journey you’re starting out on have to say;

Taking a crowd with you is not going to make your choices or experience easy! In fact, too many opinions are going to have you reaching for more than just one glass of champagne during fittings! Their advice is to limit your entourage to two special people who have very different personalities.

Try to include at least one who is a really honest but loving friend, or include your mom, as long as she isn’t too biased or bossy! Add to this someone sensitive enough to be the perfect foil for the brutally honest friend!  Everyone else can wait for the big day!

You may well find that you fall in love 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 be a lot more fun for you!

It’s best, if you can, to start shopping for your wedding dress once you know 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’ve have decided on a late afternoon or early evening wedding, add a bolero jacket or cape 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’ll never regret!

There are a lot more words of wisdom that make life a little easier for brides starting out on the hunt for a dream wedding dress without causing further confusion, but, here’s a final thought; make sure that whatever you do, you wear the bra you are going to be wearing on your wedding day to every fitting!

Oh and bring your wedding shoes along too! Facing your wedding day in a dress that’s too long or too short isn’t going to make it the happy day you so deserve!

Ever After Bridal not only offers designer wedding dresses for sale or hire in Durbanville, Cape Town, they also welcome you into their family to share a wealth of experience through over ten years of dressing brides, they share a passionate commitment to making a journey that can be pretty daunting a whole lot easier!
