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.
