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.
