WELCOME to the Bridal Manor

EXPERIENCE

Welcome to the Manor Experience

Since I received my first sewing machine in grade 1, my love for excellent quality construction of fashion garments started. I completed my fashion & marketing studies in 2003 after which I worked in the fashion industry to gain valuable industry experience which is of great value, since today.

I realised my dream and opened Bridal Manor in 2010 and here’s the story so far.

Bridal Manor Experience

THP_1262

I sold my first dress from my little townhouse within the first week my website went live, and it quickly expanded from there. I then moved into our current premises a year after I sold my first dress and since then we expanded 3 more times and currently have a beautiful boutique, I am very proud of.

Within a few years, we were a big team of expert ladies working together as a little family.

I am quite amazed but totally proud to say that Bridal Manor has become "The" place to buy your wedding dress in Pretoria and we are leaders in our field. My little brand has become a famous name in the South African wedding world.

It’s so very flattering to know that Brides travel from all over Africa and even abroad to visit us and fall in love with "The One".

To ensure that Bridal Manor can offer the best, I’ve invested in travelling across the world to bring back a unique and personally selected range of exceptional international designer wedding dresses. Each designer I work with is handpicked for their excellent craftsmanship, brilliance and for their unbending desire to deliver the best service, quality, fit and cut.

Every member of my team is also handpicked for their personal style, skills, qualifications and great personality, some have been with me from almost the very start. Ranging in ages from 20 something to 50 something we have a stylist for every age. I am a busy working mom of 3 boys and without these special ladies, I would be a bit lost.

I am totally in love with this year’s collection of wedding dresses and separates.  Each wedding dress was handpicked for its individuality, superb fit and flawless design. We are proud to sell a large range of dresses and some of the biggest brands known worldwide.

Here we have made it super easy for you to shop either by designer, silhouette & shape or even by personal style. So if you are boho, classically elegant, alternative or sophisticated & formal we have a dress just for you.

My collection of designer gowns starts at about R 15000 and goes up to R 40 000, with the average dress price being around R 25 000. We know the amount you want to spend on a wedding dress plays a big role in the decision-making process, therefore, we’ve incorporated price category filters so that you’re easily able to see how expensive your taste really is. If you’re unsure about anything please do call and chat with us.

Come and experience Bridal Manor, home to many happy beginnings. Our brides can trust us to be filled with a sense of wonder and anticipation as they embark on the journey of their dreams.

your
questions
ANSWERED

allow us to EDUCATE YOU…

Your Expert Luxury Fitting
  • Consultations must be scheduled, booked and paid in advance
  • We charge a consultation fee of R400 on Saturdays and R300 during the week, which includes refreshments and a complimentary second view.
  • Your fitting will be 90 minutes. Ensure you arrive on time to make the most of your fitting.
  • Bring pictures of dresses you’ve seen on Google, Pinterest and Facebook or in bridal magazines or you’ve tried on elsewhere.
  • Wear light coloured underwear and perhaps a strapless bra to be able to get the best idea when fitting different necklines.
  • For your own convenience, we recommend no children under the age of 10 are allowed.
  • Bring the person closest to you whose opinion you value most; too many opinions can easily confuse you.
  • If you wish to bring a large bridal party, it is advised to do so during your complimentary second fitting.
  • Cancellations of fitting appointments will only be accepted 48 hours before your fitting. Please note that a 5% admin fee will be deducted.
Buying my wedding dress and accessories at Bridal Manor
  • We do not rent our wedding dresses as we believe in selling excellent-quality gowns. We do have a re-sell option available to all Bridal Manor brides, which your consultant will discuss during your appointment.
  • We require a deposit payment to order your dress; the balance is due on arrival of the dress before we start with alterations.
  • If possible, it’s best to allow 5 to 8 months before your wedding to order a gown. This will allow enough time for the construction, transport as well as alterations of your gown to ensure a perfect fit.
  • We are able to help brides with a much shorter lead time with available stock and samples in our store; this can be discussed with your consultant.
  • Our collection prices vary from R15 000 to R40 000; there may be dresses lower than R15 000 on our sale page.
  • Our samples vary between sizes 4 and 24 depending on the dress style. Feel free to view our fuller-figure section for dresses available in sizes 16 to 24.
  • Special-order designer veils have a 3-to-4-month lead-time, so making a decision at the time you order your gown is helpful.
  • At your first alterations fitting, you can order a custom veil which we’ll make for you, or you are welcome to buy from our stock available in store. We offer a large variety of custom-made veils to suit your specifications.
Alterations
  • Bridal Manor has on our premises a specialised team of alteration experts with more than 20 years’ experience who will ensure that your dress is a perfect fit on your dream day.
  • We’ll contact you about 8 to 10 weeks before the wedding to book your alteration appointment.
  • Kindly bring to your fittings your shoes, accessories and underwear that you plan on wearing on your wedding day.
  • Alteration costs are excluded from the wedding dress price and mainly range between R1 000 and R2 000.
  • Our alteration department is only available during the week between 08:30 and 16:00.
  • Please ensure that you are available for 3 to 5 fittings during the week in the 8 weeks before your wedding.
  • If you are from out of town, it is recommended that you do your alterations in your hometown as a few fittings may be necessary; please discuss this with your consultant.
  • At your first alterations fitting, you can order a custom veil which we’ll make for you, or you are welcome to buy from our stock available in store. We offer a large variety of custom-made veils to suit your specifications.
Brides beware
  • Make sure the wedding dress boutique where you want to buy your dress from is an authorised retailer who sells authentic designer gowns and not copies or knock-offs.
  • For your security, please visit the store locator on the supplier’s website page to find an authorised retailer.
  • If the price of a designer wedding dress is significantly below the prices generally prevailing in the market, it is highly likely it is not a genuine product.
  • Counterfeit products are being offered on websites and in unauthorised retail locations. In some cases, suppliers from China claim they produce genuine designer products. These products, however, have proven to be counterfeit and have been the cause of great disappointment, dissatisfaction and regret.
  • Bridal Manor is an authorised retailer of Pronovias, Justin Alexander, Lillian West, Sincerity, Sweetheart. Justin Alexander Signature and Nicole Spose.
