5 Bridal Boutique Myths Busted
Finding a bridal boutique in Gauteng isn’t difficult – there are literally hundreds of them. Choosing the right bridal boutique, however, can be a bit trickier. This is a big part of your wedding planning. Like everything else, you want your dress shopping to go smoothly and be an unforgettable experience that you will look back on and cherish.
So, what should you expect when visiting a bridal boutique in Gauteng? Some brides think it is all champagne and caviar, laughter and photos. Other brides are terrified that the consultant is going to see them in their underwear.
Every store is different, but they all have one thing in common – brides walking through the door looking for their dream dress.
We’re going to bust five common myths which surround many bridal boutiques (in Gauteng and pretty much everywhere else in the world):
Myth #1: You can’t say you don’t like a gown that the consultant brings you to try on.
Yes, you can. Your consultant at the bridal boutique can’t help you find the perfect dress if you aren’t upfront and honest about what you like and don’t like about each style. Consultants want the brutal truth!
Myth #2: You can try on as many dresses as you like and it’s great fun.
Yes, well… it can be overwhelming and not-so-fun after a while. Any consultant at a bridal boutique in Gauteng will tell you that it helps everyone a lot if you have an idea of what you like before you walk through the door. Narrowing your options makes for a far more focused appointment.
Myth #3: It’s free drinks, so the more the merrier!
Most bridal boutiques will provide complimentary refreshments. It’s a good ice-breaker and makes things less formal. But, it’s not an invitation to an open house party. Come with one or two trusted confidants. Emotions will be running high as it is, so keep the champers-sipping to a minimum and focus.
Myth #4: Online wedding dress shopping is the answer!
No, it isn’t. “Buyers beware”, is our warning. There is no substitute for the quality of design of wedding gowns bought through authorised retailers. Note that authorised retailers will never sell authentic wedding dresses designed by recognised bridal brands online. None of Timeless Bridal Couture’s gowns are available for sale online, which means that you can rest assured that they are authentic.
Myth #5: You can pose in all the dresses you try on and send the pics to your girlfriends for their approval.
Many bridal boutiques in Gauteng don’t allow you to take photos. Timeless Bridal Couture also has a no-photo policy. Sorry girls, save the selfies and Instagramming for your Big Day. We’re sure you can appreciate that plagiarism of design is a huge problem in the wedding gown industry.
