Getting married to a prince
and wearing a dream-gown is every little girl’s dream and by
being pro-active a bride can have the dream-day of her life.
Start making these decisions as
you continue on this amazing journey, and if you still have
trouble deciding, visit
or book a consultation
During my years of bridal
design I have learned a few tricks that I share willingly with
prospective brides today....
The biggest question often is:
should I follow fashion trends or should I hang on to my
dream-dress-idea that I have had for so long?
Fashion has a tendency to sometimes dictate what should be done
and what not. Brides should rather look at fashion
trends as a guideline and not as a dictation to what
should be done and what not. These guidelines merely
indicates what will be easily available in shops.
If you like pearls, wear it!
If you love lace, wear it!
If you love clean lines, wear
Do not try and follow
fashion-trends at the cost of your dream-gown. Choose fabrics
and colours and especially necklines that are in fashion.
Insist on fitting different
styles before you decide what suits you best.
If you have a picture from a
magazine of your dream-dress, cut the head of the model off and
see if you still like the dress. View our fantastic
celebrity bridal pages
Decide on undergarments before
you go for your first dress-fittings.
Undergarments a 100 years ago!
Always take the right shoe heel
and –height with when you go for your dress-shopping.
Accept your figure-type and do
not force yourself into a style that you know does not work for
Try not to sun-tan or use a sun
bed with bathing costumes that have any lines running over your
shoulders. These lines are ugly when seen, especially on
Do not play the matchy-matchy
game with your
groom. We did this n the previous millennium.
Allow him to wear what suits him best and try and stay away from
bright or décor-colours.
The bride’s mother are setting
the dress-standard for your wedding and has to choose first what
she is going to wear before the groom’s mother and anyone else.
Remember to take your scrapbook
with pictures and ideas with you when you visit your designer
for the first time.
Use one or two of your ideas in
your gown (the best one or two) and not all of them.
Remember a beautiful, exciting,
stylish look will have only one primary focus:
Either the dress, or your bouquet, or your
jewelry, or your hairstyle, or…, or…, and
NOT all of it.
