There’s Nothing More Beautiful Than Being Yourself 

It takes all sorts to make the world go ‘round, as they say. Nothing could be truer when it comes to brides-to-be, which is probably why there are thousands of wedding dresses sitting in boutiques across Gauteng… each waiting patiently for its perfect bride.

Thank goodness for variety, fresh designs, and innovation in wedding dresses, coming to us in Gauteng from designers as far afield as Europe.

Any bride in Gauteng who is looking at wedding dresses at the moment is more than likely planning an early winter wedding (we always advise you to start looking at wedding dresses at least eight months before your Big Day). Luckily, the weather in Gauteng is blissful just about all-year round, so even autumn brides can look at styles of wedding dresses that feature plunging necklines and illusion backs, for example.

Choosing a style can be overwhelming. To make things simpler, it really helps to define what your bridal style is.

Remember, determining your style is not only about which wedding dresses you will be fitting on, it is also about the statement you want to make on the day and, it’s all tied into the theme of your wedding too.

You may not think so, but everything, from your make-up and hair, to the bouquet, the wedding venue, music, and dessert table speak volumes about who you are.

Some brides get caught up in trends and completely lose sight of who they really are. Our philosophy is that if you’ve never owned a garment in the style remotely close to the one you want for your wedding dress, you’re on the wrong track.

The ballroom-style wedding gown, which remains a popular classic with Gauteng brides, is a good example of this. So, your wardrobe reflects a boho vintage girl who is most comfortable in flats or bare feet, loves flowers in her hair, and would choose Frank Sinatra over Kanye any day. Why then does this bride want to look like Cinderella on her wedding day by insisting on only fitting ballroom wedding dresses?

What this bride needs is a style such as the Breda wedding dress, which is part of our Le Papillon collection. It has a beautiful lace bodice, which exudes vintage and is an absolute must-have for that whimsical look. The bodice is perfectly complemented by a soft crepe skirt.

What is most important in choosing a wedding dress is that you want to be comfortable in it and be yourself. If you’re not used to wearing big, puffy skirts or body-hugging fabric (because it’s not your style), don’t look at these types of wedding dresses.

And, you don’t have to go over the top with fabric or colour to make a statement either. If you’re not that type of bride, let everybody in Gauteng know, by walking down the aisle in a style of wedding dress that is right for you!
