By Buhlebenkosi Sibanda

Finding the perfect wedding dress for your special day may seem a little daunting. But when it comes to your big day, finding a style that will represent well the person you are, as well as your dream look is one important thing. After having interviewed our brides from the current and previous editions and some of their costume makers, here is a guide that will match you with the ideal dress silhouettes.


This is ideal for brides looking to show off their curves as told by Monica Molebatsi. This fitted gown hugs the length of the body before flaring out at the knees in a romantic skirt. Its best suited for hugging slender frames, hourglass figures, and full-figured curves.


Tabeth Chipfupa thinks while trends come and go, some silhouettes like ball gowns stay timeless. These evoke fairytale magic with their cinched-in waist, dramatic flared, overflowing skirt, and fitted bodice, that will be in most of the brides’ minds to come. It flaunts ones’ assets and makes one feel like a superstar because the dress is all


Kerry Anne Gordon says these are similar to ball gowns though they are fitted through the waist before extending into a full skirt, creating an A-shaped silhouette. The skirt part is flared unlike the ball gown and looks perfect on all body shapes and sizes.


Nontobeko Mangena had a custom-made gown, which she basically constructed herself. Your wedding dress should be special, it should co-operate everything you want and for that reason why not make it yourself? 


NM Streetwear who custom-made Monica’s dress defined these as versatile and undeniable statements making. They are more popular for casual weddings, as a second- dress option for the reception. Short wedding dresses are perfect for showing off your legs, shoes, and epic dance moves. 


These are great for all body sizes, according to NM Streetwear, and is one of the fresh trends in bridal fashion. One-piece jumpsuit offers brides a standout style that highlights the waist, narrowest part of the body, and an illusion of long legs.


They are a two-piece wedding dress fashioned from a top and a skirt. This is perfect for unique brides who feel traditional gowns aren’t for them. Bridal separates are a modern way to highlight one’s best assets and express your personal style, as told by LilyAnne Bridal.
