The annual Wedding Expo took place in Cape Town this past weekend at the CTICC. Brides-to-be, excited moms and even a few grooms drew inspiration for all things wedding related. From decor and selfie-booths to gowns and beauty, the expo showcased everything a bride might need to make her dream day a reality.
Here are some of our favourite picks.
Infinity Dress serves as the perfect answer to finding dresses for your bridal party that are not only cohesive, but can be altered to flatter any body shape. This brand produces the renowned ‘infinity’ dress that can be styled in 27 different ways. Their studio in Cape Town allows you to browse through a range of colours, fabrics and styles to make sure each of your bridesmaids receives a dress that is personalised and special. The best part? It can be worn many times over. Browse their online store for stunning designs that can be made to your custom size and colour, and you may even find a matching tie or pocket-square for the guys. They also won the best stand award at the expo, so you’re know you’re in good hands.

Cindy Bam Couture
We loved the collection of romantic flowy gowns that were shown on the runaway. The lace details and light fabrics chanelled themes of a Cape Town beach wedding in summer, while designs at the stand sported impressive applique and beadwork.
