Erna Theron from Lace Blossom is a household name in the bridal industry and she has provided many brides with beautiful wedding gowns a girl could ever dream of, we've asked Erna to share her great story behind the leading company below!
I love to portray femininity in my designs and personal style. I am a true believer of timeless designs combined with a trendy element.
I think the few trends that have been going on - like the low/open back, crop top and skirt, blouse top effect will remain for some time still!
A bridal gown that doesn't fit well is a big faux pas for me. A big 'no no' for me personally would be anything over the top. I love simplicity and quality.
I love the outdoors and being active outside gets my batteries charged and helps me unwind mentally.
The top advice I could give is to make sure you love what you do, you have a good business plan, a goal and a vision to perhaps fall back on when you get discouraged. Support from friends and family always helps too!
Make sure you know your body well. We are each created uniquely and how certain fabric falls and hangs on your body will drape differently on another woman. Choose a design that flatters your figure!
Before deciding on your wedding dress, check out all the different trends and ideas available to you online. Find designers that you'd love to work with and start setting up appointments to see their work. I now it may seem scary but finding the perfect dress for you is the main priority!
