What Our Johannesburg Brides Love About Us

 

As a bridal boutique in Pretoria, we often find that brides from all over Gauteng make the trip to have their wedding dress consultations with us. Johannesburg brides, in particular, seem to enjoy the quality of the impeccable products and services we offer. If you are from Johannesburg and looking for a professional bridal experience, then Timeless Bridal Couture might be what you are looking for. Here are just some of the reasons our Johannesburg brides adore us:

World-Class Bridal Consultations

Every bride is different, which is a fact that we appreciate. We, therefore, take our time during appointments getting to know what our brides like and dislike. With our intimate and exclusive bridal consultations, we will give you expert advice and recommendations on wedding dresses that will suit your body type, skin tone, and most importantly, style. Our consultations are an hour and a half long, during which time you will be able to fit as many dresses on as you’d like. We love to spoil our brides, so you can expect luxury treatment while being provided with your pick of tea, Nespresso coffee, or champagne.

Wedding Dress Fittings and Alterations

We have our very own, highly skilled seamstresses, which means that our studio offers in-house alterations to customise your dress, ensuring the perfect fit on your special day. Fittings will take place as often as needed with your final fitting done about 1-2 weeks before your wedding date, so you can rest assured that your gown is ready to be worn down the aisle.

Exclusive Post-Wedding Services

Whether you wish to put your dress in storage or resell it, we offer dress-cleaning and pressing services, as well as dress repairs done by our seamstress. Should you choose to sell your dress after your wedding, we provide our clients with the option of reselling their dresses through our studio, which means that a percentage of your original purchase price gets paid back to you.

Exclusive Designer Wedding Gowns

We know that our Johannesburg brides expect products of a high standard, which is why we house designer brand dresses of exceptional quality to suit every style and silhouette. We are passionate about accentuating feminine grace and beauty by making every bride feel her absolute best.

For exclusive bridal consultations, superb post-wedding services, and matchless designer wedding dresses, why not make an appointment with one of Johannesburg’s favourite bridal boutiques? Contact us today via our email at info@timelessbridal.co.za.

Planning a Johannesburg Wedding? We Have the Right Dresses for You!   

 

It’s no secret that South Africa has some of the most stunning landscapes in the world, which is why our splendid country is a travel hotspot when it comes to destination weddings. From the tropical climate of the South Coast to the delicately beautiful Fynbos in the Cape – South Africa is rich in breathtaking fauna and flora. There is no shortage of wedding venues, either. One of the top cities for wedding venues in South Africa is Johannesburg.

Johannesburg has a multitude of wedding venues and because each type of venue is unique, we at Timeless Bridal Couture have the perfect dress for each occasion. If you are having a Johannesburg wedding and your venue falls into one of these categories, pay attention to the type of dresses you can pull off on your Big Day.

Hotels, Mansions, and Clubhouses

These venues are usually quite large and are known for sophisticated luxury. They are also always the easiest option because they generally include everything from catering to the DJ in one fee. Having such a grand venue with so many guests is definitely a time that the bride will want to wear a showstopper. A ballgown silhouette like the SY6636 by Stella York is a great way to make every head turn and dazzle your guests with your elegance.

Farmyards, Barns, and Inns

Rustic weddings have been on trend for a while now, as most brides love the challenge of DIY crafts and casual festivities that end with good food and dancing. If bridesmaids in cowboy boots are your thing, then you will need a comfortable dress to dance in. The Capri dress by Le Papillon is a lovely two-piece gown made from flowing chiffon, which gracefully moves with the body. It is ideal for the bride who loves having her skirt caught in a breeze.

Gardens, Vineyards, and Wineries

The photographs from this type of venue always have a backdrop of lush, green foliage and fairy lights. Bridal gowns that suit this look include vintage, ethereal dresses. One of our favourites in this category is the Estelle from Le Papillon. Incorporating romantic elements such as Chantilly lace and hand-beaded details, this dress is fit for a fairytale.

Lake Houses and Dam Venues

Thin straps? Flowing material? This is all it takes to make a joyful water-wedding look sexy and elegant. We love the Lily dress in the Colet collection by Nicole Spose. This boho-styled dress incorporates a soft tulle skirt (which looks beautiful when whipped up by water) for some wedding fun in the sun.

Getting the Most Out of Your Wedding Dress Appointment Near Johannesburg

There is nothing more stressful than sitting in heavy, Johannesburg traffic – except maybe the idea of a wedding dress fitting. Planning a wedding can put a lot of strain on a bride, and the last thing she wants is the confusion and fuss surrounding choosing her perfect dress. This pressure can be amplified when an array of opinions regarding her choices leave her frustrated and exhausted.

Thankfully, at Timeless Bridal Couture, just a short drive from Johannesburg, we are all too familiar with the stress a bride-to-be goes through, and we treat the consultation process with the utmost care and respect. Unlike in Johannesburg traffic, you will have us every step of the way to ensure that you feel comfortable, and enjoy this exciting part of your journey. Feeling prepared for your wedding dress appointment can help you to relax and get the most out of your time with us – thus, we have compiled a list of a few tips to keep in mind for the day of your appointment.

The Right Time Management

Our consultations are an hour and a half, as it is important that you are able to go through your options without feeling rushed. Opening this time up, free of any other obligations, will allow you to browse and fit dresses at your leisure. Because you are able to try on as many dresses as you’d like in your time with us, you may find yourself getting tired – we recommend eating something to sustain you for the duration of the appointment.

The Right Research

While it is important to have an open mind on the day of your appointment, we recommend doing some research about the different types of dress styles, neckline shapes, and materials. The shape of your body will be a large factor in deciding which dress is not only the most comfortable, but also the most flattering.

The Right Undergarments

During the appointment, you will be in and out of wedding dresses, so you will need to wear underwear that you are comfortable being seen in. Nude, seamless underwear is preferable, as it will not interfere with the dresses that you try on – a black brassiere strap may be distracting when trying on an a strapless dress.

The Right Company

Many brides are tempted to bring a large group of friends and family along to a dress appointment. In theory, this sounds like a fun day out for the bridal party, but in practice, it isn’t always in the best interest of the bride. Everyone has their own taste with regards to what looks good and what does not, so it is important to bring people along who you know will respect your decisions as the bride. Two or three trusted companions is ideal when dress shopping. Remember to take into account what the consultant has to say, as their expertise may open up new options you might not have considered before.

Our consultations are professional, intimate and exclusive, and we offer a variety of customisation options for your chosen dress. If you live in Pretoria or Johannesburg, feel free to contact us at Timeless Bridal Couture to book a wedding dress appointment.

Brides Just Wanna Have a Fabulous Experience 

Johannesburg is a big place, and it can feel like it wants to eat you alive when you start shopping for wedding dresses! Do you know this feeling?

Well, relax. We’re here to help. Ultimately, you do not want viewing wedding dresses and settling on a bridal boutique in Johannesburg to be stressful and angst-filled. What you want is to find the dress you love, so if you have to go to the ends of the earth to find it, you will.

With the right bridal boutique in your corner, you won’t have to go to the ends of the earth.

What’s important when working with a bridal boutique in Johannesburg, or anywhere else for that matter, is that you communicate well with your consultant. This is very important, so you’ll have to leave the shorthand and emojis for social media, because honest, clear communication is vital when shopping for a wedding dress.

The consultant needs to get to know you (the real you), so that they can help you realise your vision. This often starts with some personal questions, like what would you consider your personal style to be and where is your wedding taking place, etc.

Yip, you will soon discover that shopping for a wedding dress isn’t your average shopping trip to one of your favourite malls in Johannesburg – it’s a little more focused and demanding, but for all the right reasons.

So, are you a city slicker or rustic bride, modern or classic, dramatic or understated? Consider your personal style before you start looking through wedding dresses, as this will really help you to narrow down your options. However, always stay true to yourself. If you want to bling like the gold foundations of Johannesburg, then do that!

This is a good reason to be selective too of who you ask advice from and who you take with to the consultation when you have narrowed down your options of wedding dresses. You need honest, trustworthy feedback and constructive criticism of the wedding dresses you’ll try on. Perhaps convince aunty so-and-so that a trip to your consultation is entirely unnecessary, and placate her with some fun photos from your bridal boutique experience.

Everyone means well, but never lose sight of the fact that this is your wedding and the wedding dresses you’ve selected to try on are the ones that you love the most.

Bridal consultants are trained to deal with overbearing entourages, but save yourself the stress from the onset and keep the party small. Deposit the other half of the entourage at a trendy little Johannesburg coffee shop and hook up with them after you’re done. They’ll no doubt be bursting with anticipation and forgiving sweet treats for the bride-to-be!

Yes, sifting through wedding dresses for your Big Day can be daunting. But, it needn’t be. If you are looking for a professional, full-service bridal boutique close to Johannesburg, look no further than Timeless Bridal Couture in Pretoria.

Choice, Choices, Choices 

There are not many brides who start shopping for wedding dresses without a knot in their stomachs – and, unfortunately, sometimes, this is not due to excitement. Finding the ideal wedding dress, especially in Johannesburg, can be stressful, but it needn’t put you in a flat spin. 

Here Are 6 Snazzy Tips to Help You Narrow Down Your Choices: 

  1. Have an idea of what you’re looking for before you start shopping for wedding dresses. With absolutely no clue from the outset, you run the risk of turning shopping for wedding dresses into a serious bridal shop nightmare. Take some time to decide on the fabric and silhouette, and think about the way you want to feel in your wedding dress.
  1. We always urge our brides to decide on a dress at least six to eight months before the wedding. Your other planning should also be well underway by then, because it will have a major impact on the wedding dresses you’ll be considering. You should have decided on the theme, venue, and time of day of your wedding, among other aspects. Are you going to be a vintage bride in a sublime Johannesburg garden setting? Or, are you going to be a whimsical bohemian bride in a trendy downtown Johannesburg setting? These are factors which will help you to narrow down your choices of wedding dresses.
  1. Celebrities may look fantastic in the most outlandish creations, but this doesn’t mean you will. Steer away from trying to copy someone else’s style. It’s like taking a photo of a celeb to your hairdresser and asking them to make you look like that – it seldom works out. Be original. There are so many wedding dresses to choose from, and ways in which you can make a wedding dress unique. There is no need to copy anyone.
  1. There is no shortage of bridal shops in Johannesburg. Brides are, in fact, spoilt for choice. Our advice is do some research, talk to friends and family, and gather some references. Word of mouth is a powerful medium, and nowhere more so than in a bustling city like Johannesburg where wedding dresses are rife.
  1. Don’t lose sight of who you are. Your personality and personal style should shine through on your wedding day. Go for wedding dresses that will bring out those playful, quirky, hip, modern, or classic traits which make you who you are. This can be difficult when you’re in a Johannesburg bridal shop surrounded by wedding dresses, the next more gorgeous than the last. By sticking to styles and silhouettes which really speak to who you are, you can easily narrow down your choices of wedding dresses.
  1. We’ve seen many brides make the mistake of choosing a silhouette which doesn’t suit their body. There is nothing wrong with losing a few kilos before your Big Day, but in reality, your body shape is your body shape. Let a professional analyse your body shape for you and show you wedding dresses which will bring out your best assets and have you feeling confident and comfortable.

If you live in Johannesburg, make the trip through to Pretoria for an appointment with us at Timeless Bridal Couture. You won’t regret it!
