Rene bought her wedding dress from Olivelli in Randburg. She had a clear image in mind of what sort of dress she wanted, but when she tried the style on, it just didn’t suit her. After trying on around 10 dresses, the shop assistant suggested she try on a dress that was on display. The bride-to-be wasn’t keen, but her sister insisted too, so she gave in.
The Maggie Sottero dress turned out to be the one! It was beautiful but elegantly simple, and the beaded sweetheart neckline suited Rene perfectly. Her sister treated her to some drop earrings from Galaxy and Co, which she wore with the dress, and she bought some white sandals from Woolworths.
Rene hired Amelia from Sunet Vermaark to do her hair and makeup. She asked for a natural but elegant look, and was thrilled with the result. She accessorized her updo with a diamante clip bought from Sass Diva.
