Creating with Peach Tree Productions

Video Shoot.jpg

Wrap Dress Magic

We recently decided to embark on a mission to create a promotional video for our multiway wrap dress product. We needed a partner with a “can-do” attitude. Because what we wanted was a very complicated quick change sequence of our dresses gliding across the screen - this was no small request…

We found the perfect partner in an owner operated videography company called Peach Tree Productions.

In the past, we would use photos try to convey just how versatile this little dress was. Not only that, but when you consider what the market is currently offering by way of bridesmaids dresses, then the price-points tend to start at around R800 and up. We offer our wrap dress at R535. So it is a very attractive proposition for our customers. Creating a social media video would allow us to present our wrap dress in a more attractive and exciting way.

David from Peach Tree gave us an awesome final product. Not only that, but he really knew how to work with our models to inspire confidence in their on-screen movement. The final product is now up on our Facebook page and the result speaks for itself. We should add that David also has a division of his business called Peach Tree Weddings. So if you are looking for someone to capture your wedding on video, then look no further. You can reach David at 082 333 1106

We are super stoked about our video-shoot today. We plan on showcasing our multiway wrap dresses and to demonstrate just how versatile they can be. Peach Tree Productions will be on hand to film our models and the ever dependable Maryke Verster will be taking care of our hair and makeup requirements. We look forward to sharing the final video with you in due course.

The Design Process

Okay, so you’re thinking of having your very own unique wedding dress designed from scratch. How might that work?…

First and foremost, you’ll need to book an appointment. We have made it a breeze for you to book a consult with us. Simply go to our “CONTACT” tab and fill out the form at the bottom of the page. We will be notified of your appointment request and get it touch to confirm it for you.

As a rule, we try to allocate at least 1.5 hours to our design consults. So keep that in mind when you make your booking.

Once you arrive you will be given the opportunity to try on some of our off the rack dresses. The aim of this will be to give you an insight how certain dress shapes might either work for you, or against you. Remember that our job is to make you look your absolute best. We can only do that by being brutally honest with you.

Once you have finished trying on some styles, our inhouse designer will show you an assortment of fabrics to choose from . She will then start the process of taking your measurements. This is done with meticulous attention to detail. She will also sketch out a design for you that will be based on the shape, the bodice, the back and the embellishments of the gown. These details will include things such as the bead and lace work.

The entire process up until that moment would have been at no cost to you. So even if you chose to walk away, then you would not be charged a cent... Not many design studios are willing to run the risk of spending precious time with a prospective client only to never see them again. But we have a high degree of confidence in our service offering. Because we know that what we do here at Bridal Alchemy is rooted in so much more than just the sale of a gown.

Shortly after your consult is concluded - usually a day or so afterwards - you will receive a formal quote that will stipulate the gown costs to you. This will be broken up into a deposit value as well as the incremental payments that we would expect over time. There will be no hidden costs such as additional alterations etc. In fact, as part of your quote, you will have access to at least three additional fitting consults. Those fittings are for the purposes of performing fine alterations to perfect your gown.

We pride ourselves on the overall quality of our service offering. So why don’t you make a booking and come and talk to us about your big day? We are ready to be of service :)

Wrap Dresses

Bridal Alchemy_Bridesmaids-16.jpg

Infinity wrap dresses continue to be one of the most popular line items that we sell here at Bridal Alchemy. Brides know that they get great value for money. They are also assured that each dress is made to precise measurements as well as the exact colour that the bride wanted. Keep in mind that wrap dresses are extremely flexible in that they can be styled in many different ways. Click HERE for a YouTube how-to video.

If you would like to order your wrap dresses, then simply email with the words “Wrap Dress Order Form” in the subject line. We will then reply to you with our standard ordering template and our colour options.

Please note that while our September R450 promotional price offering has now expired, that we will continue to offer the price to customers who order 3 pieces or more. If you are ordering fewer than 3 pieces, then the standard price of R535 per dress will apply.

We DO however anticipate that due to the rand/dollar exchange rate, that our textile merchants will be upping their prices to us soon. We will do our best to keep our prices as low as possible.
