Okay, so it’s never going to be completely stress-free to find the wedding dress you’ve always dreamed of wearing on your fairy-tale day, but, there are a few pointers that could certainly ease some of the stress during this once-in-a-lifetime experience.
Since you’re only going to be wearing this dress once, the pressure is really on, and anything you can do to make it a little less daunting will be well worth your while, and could even make the experience a lot more exciting and fun!
So, keep a few of these pointers in mind before you head for your first fitting for an easier journey:
Start out with at least six months on hand
When you start going through online bridal wear catalogues and paging through bridal magazines you’ll know you’re in for a super-human feat, for any woman.
There are thousands and thousands of different wedding dress styles and colours available today that you could well send you into information overload, long before you head for your first fitting!
Give yourself plenty of time, you deserve it. If you’re lucky enough to have more than six months in which to find your dress and settle on the alterations, you’ll have plenty of breathing space in the run up to the wedding!
Keep track of the styles you love to bring along to fittings, but, try to keep an open mind too. You may be pleasantly surprised to find yourself walking down the aisle in a dress you may not even have considered to be the one!
Don’t have that much time?
If you’re lucky enough to have started out at Ever After Bridal Wear in Durbanville, Cape Town, then you’re going to be in the pound seats, no matter how little time you have!
You’ll find that this team stocks 4 top ranges of designer wedding dresses for hire, making it easy for even the bride with little planning time to shimmy down the aisle in a designer wedding dress.
Hiring a designer wedding dress is also a fantastic way to save for the start of a new life together, or a honeymoon to rival all honeymoons, so don’t even think twice if this is your ideal!
Understand the shape of your body
Your wedding dress is meant to celebrate and accentuate the natural shape of your body, and, if you spend some time on getting to know the different silhouettes that would do all of this for you, you’ll already be well on your way to success, before you head for the first fitting!
Compliment your skin colouring
Not every bride glows in icy white, which is exactly why there are so many different shades of white awaiting you, along with a rainbow of colours that range from dusky rose to salmon, red to grey and anywhere in-between, for those who will pale into insignificance in white!
