A guide to the perfect wedding dress for your special day from a wedding venue in Gauteng

As a bride who’s booked the most picturesque wedding venue in Gauteng, your wedding dress is sure to be the next thing on your mind.

Wedding dresses are a focal point of any wedding, so it’s very important that you take some time and think about the styles that will suit you best rather than leaving it all to the last minute. Your wedding party and friends are going to have all sorts of ideas about what you should choose, but at the end of the day, you’ll find that your opinion is the most important! Write down ideas about what would suit your event, the impression you want to give, if you have a theme or you’re going for a more traditional look. This will help you sort through the trends and find something that fits in with your event.

If you’re looking for something a bit daring but still traditional, one of the most sweetly sensual wedding gowns out there are the bareback designs. These wedding gowns can be cut high in the front and look very demure, while keeping your back bare can be amazingly flattering and daring. Just remember to make sure that you have a good bra for this look!

While wedding dresses can tend towards the practical or the outrageous, both looks can incorporate a train. This can look lovely trailing behind you at the ceremony but you do need to consider the rest of the day as well – after all, what happens when the reception comes though and you need to take to the dance floor? In years past, this might have resulted in an entire wardrobe change, but these days, wedding gowns can often be arranged so that the train will be bundled up as a bustle, which can change the look of your entire dress. Some brides find this to be the perfect option, while others dislike the extra bulk and weight.

There is also a trend for wedding gowns that aren’t white. Pure white gowns are lovely, but the truth of the matter is that the colour suits surprisingly few people. A glacial shade of white can make complexions look washed out, too yellow or too pink. Luckily, when you want to make sure that your dress offsets your skin tone, there are many options for you. An off-white colour can do the trick and, if you have a deeper complexion, you’ll find that a rich, luxurious ivory is very complementary. Other brides realize that they would love to be even more daring and will look for gowns in pale pastels or in something even more vibrant!
