Buy / Hire
Our imported Wedding Dresses are available to buy or hire.
Please note we carry a variety of sizes between size US4 and US10. We do not have every dress in every size but we try our very best to offer a great variety of dresses in all sizes. We do stock a very small selection of dresses in a size US12 to US16.
We offer an alterations service to existing clients as well as any-one else who needs their wedding dress, bridesmaids dresses or Matric dance dress altered. Just about every wedding dress needs some sort of alteration... this is a lengthy, difficult process which generally requires between 3 to 6 fittings. Please allow between 4 to 6 weeks for this process.
Prices to hire are generally between R10 000 – R17 000 and prices to buy are from R9000 upwards. However, we do have a sale rail in store (Priced between R3000 and R9000) and will try our very best to accommodate you.
Is there a cost for a consultation?
After a brief ‘One on One’ consultation, you will be taken to one of our luxurious fitting rooms where you can enjoy a glass of bubbly (if that’s your thing!) with your nearest and dearest… We will be here to assist and guide you the whole way through – from your first appointment to the day you collect your gorgeous dress! We ask that for your Own benefit, you bring a maximum of 4 people with you.
We have 2 packages on offer…All consultations last One hour.
- Silver – No consultation fee. Pay just R20 per dress that is fitted.
- Gold – Enjoy a bottle of Award Winning Bubbly and try on 5 dresses (or more) for only R250! (Fitting wedding dresses whilst drinking bubbly with your best mates and family – what could be better!?)

About The Wedding Boutique
"I am living my dream…gosh, I am SO blessed!"
People often ask me “Alex, what on earth made you want to have a Bridal Boutique’ and for the past few years my answer has always been “well I’ve always loved wedding dresses, everything about them – the way they make you feel, the way they fall perfectly onto a woman's body, the BIG smile the bride has when she finds THE one.”
Then the other day an old friend who had been living abroad for many years came back and said to me “Alex, do you remember when we were in school and you were always drawing wedding dresses?” I couldn’t believe how I had totally forgotten that I used to do that! WOW – What an ‘ah-ha’ moment!
So, now I tell people that story :)
What are your opening hours?
We are open 09h00 to 17h00 Monday to Friday and from 09h00 to 14h00 on a Saturday (but an after hours appointment can be arranged during the week)
Do i have to book to try on dresses?
You are welcome to come and browse anytime but if you would like to try on dresses, or talk in depth about your wedding dress, an APPOINTMENT is necessary. After a brief consultation, you are taken into a private fitting room (with your retinue) and fit on your dresses in your own private 'suite' :)
How long in advance must I come to discuss my dress?
We recommend about 6 to 8 months before the wedding.
Can I bring my Mom /Bridesmaids / Best friend?
Sure! But for your Own benefit, we ask that you bring a maximum of 4 people with you.
How long does it take to make a dress?
It takes roughly 3 to 4 months once your dress has been ordered from our supplier overseas.
How long in advance should I come if I am going to hire my dress?
We recommend about 6 months before your big day.
Do you make to hire?
Yes, we do… but this depends on the dress. Please enquire further.
Do you make / hire Bridesmaids dresses?
Unfortunately not. We only offer the infinity wrap dresses, but these days you can have long sleeves, lace or tulle - which keeps the infinity dress fresh and modern!
Do you make / hire suits?
How does payment work?
If you are having a dress custom made overseas a 50% deposit is required upfront and the balance when the dress arrives.
If the dress is bought off the rail 100% payment is required (although a payment plan can be made if necessary)
When hiring a dress a refundable deposit of R3500 is required when the dress is booked, and then the balance is due 30 days prior to the wedding.
