 Tips for choosing wedding dresses in South Africa

Just got engaged? Congratulations! You have probably been dreaming about this day since you were a little girl. 

For every bride-to-be, one of the biggest decisions that you will have to make – besides choosing your husband – is choosing your wedding dress, and why shouldn’t it be? You want to look like a princess and take your future husband’s breath away! So with that said, here are a few tips to choosing wedding dresses in South Africa that you may find helpful on your search.


Never Settle for the First Dress that Catches Your Eye


Where tradition and culture were once the inspiration for wedding dresses in South Africa, new innovative designs accentuating romanticism and the delicacies of life are now the muse of South African bridal couture. With so many bridal boutiques scattered throughout South Africa, there is no doubt that when shopping for wedding dresses in South Africa, you will encounter a wide variety of options and while you may be tempted, you should never settle for the first dress that catches your eye.


Consider Style, Location and Season


One of the most important things to consider is the style of the dress, as well as the location and the season of your wedding. Where are you having your wedding and in what season? Will it be hot or cold, on the beach or in a church? Once you can answer these questions, then the secret is to choose a style and silhouette that highlights your best features, while drawing attention away from your less desirable ones. Additionally, your choice should not only boast your own personality, it should also be elegant, timeless, comfortable, and it has to be unforgettable. Always remember that if you do not feel like a goddess in your dress, then it is not the dress for you.


Stick to a Budget


While you may find designer dresses that you absolutely love, stick to your budget. If there is one golden rule you should always follow, it is to NEVER try on dresses that are way above your budget, it will only make you emotional and depressed about your choices. The bottom line is that the look and style that you decide upon all depends on your budget and the statement that you want to make on your big day.
