Tips to consider before shopping for the perfect wedding dress

There are a few of the basic essentials to get together before you start shopping for the perfect wedding dress to make it all a little easier, and here we’ll bow to the experience of the awesome bridal consultants at Ever After Bridal Wear in Durbanville, Cape Town:



Wearing the right underwear to fittings is essential.  Everything you’ll be wearing under your wedding dress will affect its fit, and since you want it to be perfect, it’s worth putting in effort here.  Leave granny panties at home and come armed with either a strapless bra or one with clear straps, or both.


Weight gain or loss

While we’d all like to be able to fit into a size 6 dress, being realistic about your weight before you shop for the dress is going to ensure that your dress fits perfectly on your wedding day.  You’re beautiful as you are, so don’t go putting yourself under pressure by planning to lose weight before the big day!



You don’t have to put on a ton of makeup for fittings, but it is a good idea to wear just enough to feel good. This is important in light of the fact that you’ll be surrounded by a world of white fabric which can make under-eye circles that were barely noticeable look really stark. Put on just enough to be confident in your own innate beauty amid white fabric and bright lights.



If you’re wearing your hair up or down on your wedding day, wear it up or down at fittings. It’ll make a marked difference in how you see yourself in the dresses you fit.



Fit the dresses with shoes of a similar height to those you plan to wear at the wedding, it’ll make all the difference to the hemline.


Ever After Bridal consists of a team who love what they do, and since they’re not the designers of the wedding dresses you’ll be trying on, so they don’t mind how many times you say ‘no’ to dresses you feel don’t match your dreams and visions, all they want is to see you in the perfect designer dress on your wedding day.


You can trust that if this team of professionals who’ve been dressing brides for many years already, tells you that you can do better, it’ll be a truth, one that comes from them to show just how much they really care that you find your perfect dream wedding dress, which is priceless advice during such a momentous process.


A last tip from the team is to remember that it’s always a good idea to walk around, sit and twirl around in the dresses as you try them on, this will help you find the wedding dress that’ll make you feel like you never want to take it off!


Ever After Bridal will present you with a choice of designer wedding dresses that come from top international designers Maggie Sottero and Rebecca Ingram, and as the process evolves, you can be absolutely confident that you’ll have a team at your side who really cares about you, one that will find as much joy as you do on the day you find that perfect wedding dress!
