Almost every little girl has had dreams of her wedding day and what she’d like it to be and look like, a fairy-tale day that’s filled with magic in which she features as the fairest princess of all. But, before the magic can happen, there are a few practical things every bride-to-be needs to do.
Pick the dress for comfort and beauty
Choosing a wedding dress is one of the most important, most daunting decisions you’ll ever have to make to prepare for a magical day. If you’re not totally comfortable in your dress it’s a sure bet that your confidence will take a spill and it could well spoil your whole day, and it’ll be a long one!
This is why brides turn to the team at Ever After Bridal in Cape Town when they start shopping for their dream designer dress! Aside from everything else that’s special about this team, they also stock ranges from extraordinary international wedding dress designers such as Maggie Sottero and Rebecca Ingram.
With dresses like this in every silhouette, style and fabric on hand, this team shares a passion for seeing every bride shine on her wedding day, which is exactly why you can be 100% sure of being in the best hands possible in the industry.
Get a good night’s sleep before the big day
While this might be obvious, many brides are so anxious and or excited they struggle with sleeping the night before their big day. Some make the mistake of working late on finishing touches for the next day. Others may give in to the temptation to have a few too many glasses of wine to settle frazzled nerves, but that’s never a good idea if you’re to look fresh as a daisy as you walk down the aisle. Alcohol will dull your skin and your glow won’t be easy to force, chamomile tea may be a better option! Consider shutting down, taking a long, relaxing bath and getting under the covers, determined to sparkle on your big day!
Schedule enough time with your photographer
These photos will become the memories you’ll treasure in an album and on video for the rest of your life, images and memories that will be passed down to future generations as well, so make sure to set aside enough time to spend with your photographer before you finally let your hair down to party and celebrate!
Dance the night away…finally!
When all the formalities are over and done with, it’s time to let it all out on the dance floor! You’ve spent the day with butterflies that refused to fly in formation ahead of the ceremony, you’ve made it down the aisle beautifully and said ‘I do’, now it’s time for you and your prince charming to dance the night away and enjoy all the love that surrounds you!
…and perhaps…at the end of your honeymoon, when you have a spare moment, pop in at Ever After Bridal with your wedding album! They’ll be over the moon to see it all, as they always are when ‘their’ brides share these memories with them at their happy ending!
