Getting Married in Gauteng? Here’s How to Make a Statement!
At Timeless Bridal Couture, we have had the privilege of working with hundreds of brides and transforming them into what they’ve always dreamt of looking like on their wedding day. We also know that our Gauteng brides often have a unique set of tastes and strive to have a statement wedding that people will remember for years to come. If you find yourself searching endlessly online for ideas and growing nervous as your date draws near, then you have come to the right place. Our very own styling experts have come up with some tips for making your day as grand as you always hoped it would be, without ever having to leave Gauteng.
Choosing the Right Venue
Anyone who has gotten married in Gauteng can tell you that the sheer number of venues to choose from is staggering – and there is a venue for every need. Before the search for a wedding venue can begin, every couple must ask themselves a few questions:
- What is the theme of our wedding?
This question will be the most significant determining factor in the type of venue you select. Rustic and vintage-themed weddings often do well in outdoor venues, such as barns, vineyards, forests, and botanical gardens.
- How many guests do we plan to invite?
Hiring out a large chapel for only 20 guests might, for example, look rather empty. Be sure to fill out the space you are paying for in order to create a romantic, intimate atmosphere.
- In which season will we get married?
Your wedding venue may stun you with beautiful rose blooms in the middle of spring but, having your wedding in the heat of summer might mean those same roses are nowhere in sight. Ensure that you find out what your chosen venue will look like on the day of your wedding.
Selecting an Experienced Photographer
A spectacular wedding needs to be remembered, which is why your wedding photographer needs to know what they are doing. Most people make use of the same photographer for their engagement shoot and wedding alike – which is also a great reason to opt for an engagement shoot. Make sure that you have researched your selected photographer and studied their portfolio before finalising the contract. Your wedding photographer needs to understand your style, be able to give proper direction, and work professionally from the get-go.
Finding a Professional Bridal Boutique
There are hundreds of bridal boutiques across Gauteng to choose from, so finding the right one to put your trust in can be a trying task. The bridal boutique you decide to work with will play a pivotal role in your journey, so it is crucial to ask the right questions about the services they have on offer. Do they have a wide selection of dresses? Are they trained and professional? Does the boutique offer in-house services, such as alterations, dress cleaning, and gown-reselling options? If not, you may need to keep your eyes peeled for something of a higher standard.
Falling in Love with the Perfect Dress
Possibly the most enthralling aspect of this journey for any bride is the wedding dress. Bridal gown shopping is not only fun, but also a wonderful bonding experience for whoever joins the bride during her wedding dress consultation and subsequent fittings. It is here that the right bridal boutique will be able to assist you in finding a dress that not only suits your style, but your body shape and skin tone too. During this time, it is of the utmost importance that each bride feels confident and supported in her decisions, because a bride who feels beautifully elegant will have much of the weight of the wedding lifted from her shoulders.
If you happen to be situated in Gauteng and are on the lookout for a bridal boutique that cares for the needs of each bride that walks through the door, then look no further.
