5 Tips to Help You Choose the Right Bridal Shop 

The modern bride is super organised. How could she not be? Everything she needs is but a click away on her laptop or mobile. She can keep track of her appointments via an app, order anything she needs online, and even have a virtual tour of prospective venues.

From experience, however, we have seen even the most organised of brides unravel while trying to find the right bridal shop to meet their needs. There are dozens of bridal shops near Johannesburg and in the surrounding areas, but finding the right one is the tricky part.

If you’re looking for bridal shops near Johannesburg, come and visit us at Timeless Bridal Couture. We know brides, we know wedding dresses, and we know what brides want from bridal shops.

Here are our top 5 tips to help you make the right choice when searching for bridal shops (near Johannesburg or elsewhere):

  1. Remember anyone can pretend to be something they’re not on a website. Don’t judge bridal shops by their website alone. We don’t recommend that you order wedding dresses online either.
  1. Before you landed on this article, you may have searched “bridal shops near Johannesburg” or something similar, and been confronted with dozens upon dozens of matches. Try to narrow your search for “bridal shops near Johannesburg” down to no more than five prospective bridal shops in the area of Johannesburg.
  1. Phone the bridal shop, ask them about their dresses and the brands they stock, ask them about their policies during consultations, and ask them just how near to Johannesburg they actually are. You may be surprised to know that some of these “bridal shops near Johannesburg” are actually located in India or the Philippines.
  1. Be clear about alterations and who will be doing them. It is a bride’s worst nightmare when a dream dress turns into a nightmare alteration, because the seamstress is nowhere near the bridal shop. Preferably, you want an on-site, professional seamstress. Reputable bridal shops will offer this.
  1. Choose a bridal shop near where you live. Your fittings and consultations should be stress-free and easy to manage. Also remember that the bridal consultant’s time is as valuable as yours, and if you want their undivided attention and expert guidance, you don’t want to be running late for appointments or fittings.

Ultimately, what you are looking for in a bridal shop is a great experience, from the minute you make contact, to the moment you walk down the aisle.

Do not settle for anything less than professional service. End your search for bridal shops near Johannesburg by putting Timeless Bridal Couture’s co-ordinates into your GPS, and heading to our bridal shop.

We go the extra mile for our brides, and look forward to meeting you and being a part of this exciting journey that you are embarking on, not just regarding your wedding day, but also the new life that you will be starting.
