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!

How to tell you’re dealing with the wrong bridal wear shop

As a one-time decision that allows for no turning back once it’s made, it’s obvious that even the most confident bride will experience shopping for her wedding dress daunting enough, without having bad bridal consultants adding even more strain into the mix!

Once you collect your dress it’s a done deal, which is why its essential for you to choose a bridal wear shop that offers you a team of consultants who care about your dreams and your budget, since most budgets have been decimated in our current economic climate!

It’s your prerogative to be choosy about the bridal wear shop you settle on, as much as it’s your prerogative to move along swiftly if you’ve ended up with the wrong team to take along on this special journey!

At no point do you deserve to have bridal consultants forcing their ideas on you, after all, it’s your wedding day, your budget and your dream wedding dress this is all about!

Here are a few basic but important questions you can ask a bridal wear shop before you decide to take the journey with them to your dream wedding dress:

Will they brush off your questions?

It’s a good idea to have a list of questions to take along to your fittings. There are questions you do need answered as you negotiate these uncharted waters, but without a list you’ll forget half of them in the excitement of coming face to face with beautiful designer wedding dresses.

If you feel that your questions are being brushed off, or that the bridal consultant isn’t being entirely open and up-front, find one that’ll take your questions and concerns seriously.

Will they help you understand the fine print in the contract?

There will definitely be a contract involved in buying or hiring a wedding dress, which means there’ll be fine print involved, and, because this is such a daunting experience, you deserve to have a bridal wear shop to point out what the fine print involves.

Any bridal store that glosses over the fine print and distracts you from it isn’t the right place for you and your dreams of looking like a princess on your wedding day.

Will they be open about costs?

Your budget is very important as you head out to find the right bridal wear shop to trust with your dreams. If you find that the bridal consultants you’re dealing with initially have no interest in your concerns regarding costs and your budget, leave.

A lack of transparency about your budget on the part of the consultant could see you being flooded with dresses you fall in love with but that are way above your budget, which can be quite heartbreaking. You deserve far better than this!

Will they discuss the cost of possible alterations with you?

Naturally, not all alterations can be set in stone from the first fitting; however, if you’ve ended up with true professionals who value integrity, you’ll find that they can advise you on how to add a little leeway to your budget for alterations.

Naturally some alterations are simpler than others, making some more expensive than others, but an honest bridal wear shop will keep you informed about possible costs for alterations as you fit dresses.

If there’s no transparency about possible costs for alterations, you’d be better served by looking elsewhere for a team you can trust.

Ever After Bridal Wear ticks all the right boxes!

If you start out by booking a fitting at Ever After Bridal Wear Shop in Durbanville, Cape Town, you’ll find that you’re in the best possible company on this wonderful journey!

They care about how you get to the designer wedding dress of your dreams. They will want to know about your budget and be happy to answer every question you may have, and they’ll do it all with the same passion that has brought this team a fantastic reputation for service excellence during the past ten years!

Why hiring a designer wedding dress makes financial sense in 2021

As things stand today, with a second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic causing further havoc, so much has changed in our world, and that includes not being able to have lavish, big weddings.

Intimate weddings are all most couples can get away with under current lockdown levels, along with the economic devastation this pandemic has wrought on millions, buying an expensive wedding dress is out of the reach of many brides.

We can all understand what it is that makes wedding dresses so expensive, what with all the finishes, lace, beads and crystals used, in addition to beautiful fabrics available today, which has always made the trade off worth it to brides who could afford to buy a new wedding dress.

Most brides dream of getting married in a designer wedding dress, however, without a big budget, this dream would be scuttled were it not for the fact that more and more brides are choosing to hire these stunning designer wedding dresses.

More and more couples are choosing to save on wedding costs in an effort to make starting a new life together much easier, and, if a honeymoon is even possible, many choose to spend less on the dress and take any opportunity they can to have a honeymoon.

Ultimately, hiring a wedding dress will make no difference to the photos and videos that will emerge after the wedding and, you won’t have to go to great lengths to pack and store a wedding dress safely for posterity.

The fact that the team at Ever After Bridal Wear has made it possible for every bride to wear a designer wedding dress as she walks down the aisle puts a real feather in the cap of this bridal shop, with their stunning designer dresses that are available to hire.

Here are a few more reasons to encourage you to join the growing trend of hiring a wedding dress in Cape Town, from Ever After Bridal Wear:

Alterations

Although major alterations can’t be done if you’re hiring a designer wedding dress, there are enough small alterations that can be made to suit your body type.

The choice of a unique colour

The choice of sizes

Ever After Bridal will also assist you to find the perfect fit if the dress you love isn’t hanging on their racks when you start fittings, once again by sourcing it directly from the designer.

Aside from the cost of any small alterations, the only other cost you need to figure in when hiring a wedding dress, is to have it cleaned professionally before you return it!

When you’re ready to head off to your first fitting, speak to the awesome team at Ever After Bridal Wear to make sure that not only will you walk down the aisle in a designer wedding dress, but that you’ll have an awesome journey on the way to the culmination of all your dreams!

Don’t allow anyone to bully you into buying the wrong wedding dress!

Heading out to shop for a wedding dress is daunting enough all on its own, but add to that a bully in the entourage you take to fittings who will try to get you into a wedding dress that doesn’t suit you in terms of silhouette and style is definitely not what you need.

You need to point out unequivocally that it’s your wedding day, your choice and your dress; even if it’s your mom you need to pull up by the socks!

It’s a dress you’ll be wearing only once, and, when you start your fittings you’ll need to make wise choices about who comes along and who doesn’t. The most important thing is not to be swayed by pressure from others, you’ll know when you’ve found the perfect dress, and that’s all that matters.

Here are a few tips that may help you stand your ground, in case there’s a bully around!

Stick to your guns when it comes to your budget

One of the first things you should do at your first fitting, is to be open and discuss your budget with the bridal consultants you’ve chosen for the journey.

If you’ve had the misfortune of meeting with a bridal consultant who doesn’t respect your budget and has no qualms about getting you to try on dresses way above budget, the team at Ever After Bridal Wear in Cape Town would suggest that you find someone you can trust to respect what you’ve set aside to spend on your dress.

To this awesome team it’s all about integrity, and it’s also all about making your dream come true at a time when the world economy has taken a complete dive!

Pay attention to the fine print of your contract for the dress

There is always a contract involved when you buy or hire a wedding dress, and, it should include as much as is possible at the outset regarding alterations, colour and sizing.

At Ever After Bridal Wear you’ll find that their experience of dressing brides for over ten years now has given them the experience to be able to gauge these expenses pretty well by now, which will be of great benefit to you.

Keep your entourage small

Believe it or not, the people you bring along to fittings can make or break your experience, which is why it’s very important to balance out who joins you on this journey.

Balance friends and family out so that you have at least one who will coat their honesty with love, one who will help calm your nerves; it’s a little like choosing a few special people to invite to dinner that you know will bring out the best in you and in each other.

The drama queen and mean friend should definitely not be invited to this experience that is focused on making your dreams come true!

If you don’t want to make those you haven’t invited to feel bad, send and share photos, or to set up a mini fashion show to parade the best of what you’re trying on, just to soothe any wounded egos.

Here’s an idea you may never have considered: invite a good male friend to fittings, a brother or father, or, if you can get a good friend of your future hubby to the fitting you’ll be in the pound seats for well-rounded advice!

Be careful about being tripped up by unnecessary alterations

This is where you really need a team of bridal consultants who know their stuff, so that you’ll have a good idea of what you could be looking at in terms of alterations.

Something as simple as shortening a hemline can give unscrupulous consultants an excuse to overcharge you, and if that’s what they do with simple, imagine what they’ll do with more intricate alterations!

If you’d prefer a good start on this journey with a passionate team committed to making sure that you’ll have all the support and honesty you could hope for, then the team at Ever After Bridal Shop in Durbanville, Cape Town, will make sure that no one gets to bully you on the way to your dream designer wedding dress!
