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.
