Here comes the Bride & Co.
It’s cliche, but it’s true – the wedding dress is no doubt the most crucial element of the entire day. Your dress is the foundation of the entire wedding. So, when shopping for a dress, choose wisely! While you might have a very set idea in mind, don’t be surprised if something else looks much better. Take your time to find the one that works for you. After all, you’re the one wearing it.
Find the perfect dress for your big day that suits your body and budget at Bride & Co in Canal Walk, one of the most renowned wedding dress stores in Cape Town. Whether you’re looking for that showstopping designer gown or a flowy, ethereal piece, you’re guaranteed to find it here.
Scratch Sorbet off your to-do list
While seemingly one of the smallest parts of your wedding ensemble, your manicure is where you can have some fun. Since they’re, quite literally, such a small element, they won’t draw too much attention even if you decide to go bold. Just make sure to adhere to the overall feel of your big day. If you’re going the beachy route, natural nails might be best. Whereas, a full glam wedding might call for blinged-out beauties. You could even go for vampy-romantic with some deep red nails.
Whatever you choose, visit one of our Sorbet salons (Upper Level Shop 583 or Lower Level Shop 239) in Canal Walk for a marvellous mani to finish off your spectacular look. Pssst, if you're looking to freshen up your hubby-to-be, send him over to Sorbet MAN for a mani, pedi, facial, shave and cut.
Unveil true glam at Bobbi Brown
Imagine it; you’re standing in front of your loved one as your veil is lifted. Underneath, your face is the perfect combination of glamour and subtle, natural beauty. When it comes to your wedding makeup, there are a few things you shouldn’t compromise on; you want to look like an elevated version of yourself, you want to look flawless in photos, and you want your makeup to hold up until your guests are gone.
For unmatched bridal beauty, visit Bobbi Brown in Canal Walk and find the makeup and skincare you need to radiate from within.
Get the picture-perfect Carlton Hair
There are so many hairstyles to choose from when deciding on your dream-day do. The deciding factor, however; is the style of your dress and accessories. If your dress has intricate shoulder details, you wouldn’t want to cover it up with loose curls. And you also need to consider your veil. Ultimately, your wedding hairdo needs to be stunning and durable. Can you imagine anything worse than your glamorous up-do coming undone with the first dance?
Luckily, Canal Walk is home to one of the most popular salons in the city. Book your wedding hair consultation at Carlton Hair, and look back at your luxurious locks forever!
Find “something new” at Colette by Colette Hayman
Like most things, your wedding day accessories will depend on your dress. If you’re wearing a glitzy, glamorous gown, you’ll want to keep the accessories to a minimum; and vice versa. Just keep in mind that you have to be as comfortable as possible, considering the circumstances. Also, think of the reception; do you need a small clutch to keep your touch-up lip gloss and powder in?
A world of wonderful wedding accessories awaits at Colette by Colette Hayman in Canal Walk. So, stop by, and add the finishing touches to your already fabulous bridal look.
Float down the aisle in Aldo
Many factors should play a role in your wedding shoe selection. From the dress to the location, your holy matrimony heels need to fit the context. Will your dress cover the shoes, or will they be visible? Will you have to walk on grass or cobbles? These are essential things to consider. And, most importantly, you need to be comfortable; for a long time. So, quality is key.
Slip your feet into a stylish stiletto or wedding wedge from Aldo in Canal Walk, and strut down the aisle feeling fabulous!
