Bridal Shop Johannesburg
Our bridal shop has been welcoming brides-to-be since we first opened our doors in 2008. We have progressed and grown and we have accumulated a lot of valuable knowledge about wedding dresses and brides along the way. Our motto is that the bride is our most important focus from the moment she steps over the threshold into our bridal shop in Johannesburg until her dress is chosen and fitted perfectly.
When stepping into our bridal shop you will encounter all the luxury you could wish for while shopping for the perfect bridal gown for your romantic day. Our shop is fitted with glittering chandeliers which would not look out of place at Cinderella’s ball, the designer wedding dresses will enchant you and our personal service will welcome you.
We believe that in this competitive industry the extras we can offer are quality wedding dresses and personalised service. We understand that because you want everything perfect for your wedding day feelings run high, people become emotional… this we acknowledge and we are used to keeping ourselves and our clients calm.
Our premises comprise of private fitting rooms ensuring that our brides have a secluded space in which to spend time and to feel comfortable without being rushed. We do have the space to include more fitting rooms but since we have you, the bride, in mind we make sure you have sufficient space to swirl and twirl to your heart’s content. After all, isn’t the process of finding the right wedding dress part of the fun of getting married? We think it is!
On your first and subsequent visits to our bridal shop we discuss:
- Your wedding and your hopes and dreams
- Wedding dates
- Your proposed venue
- Your preferred colours
- Your preferred styles
- Most importantly, we discuss your wedding dress and what you have in mind!
Often we don’t know exactly what we want when searching for a wedding dress, nor do we always know what would suit our figures. This is where the knowledge of the staff at AmberRain is invaluable. Our long experience in dealing with brides and women’s body shapes means that we can guide you and advise as to what would suit you best. Many brides-to-be leave our bridal shop with quite different ideas from what they had in mind when they entered. Experience in any field is invaluable and so it is in the enchanting field of wedding dresses. Our experience and gentle guidance will help you to find the wedding dress of your most wonderful dreams.
