At My Special Day Bridal Boutique all consultations are strictly on a personal one on one basis whereby your requirements are considered and attended to. You are given the time to try on the wedding dress that's perfect for you in a comfortable and bespoke environment.


We understand that the time required to find that special wedding dress is important and thus ensure total privacy during the agreed time of consultation. Generally our Brides need 2-3 hours to find that perfect gown.


We do not exhibit our wedding dresses to the public on a walk in basis, our wedding dresses are bespoke gowns based on the latest European designs ensuring your desires are exceeded by the range and choice we have on offer.


Our imported wedding dresses are affordable. Why spend R30,000 on a wedding dress when you can you love one for the day for less than R5000. We understand that the bridal affair can be a costly affair and thus we ensure that the right wedding gown conforms to your budget, allowing you to spend more on the honeymoon as opposed a wedding gown worn just once.


Our range of imported gowns are new, most of our 170 wedding dresses have not yet been fitted or worn by a bride and thus although we offer preloved gowns, the bridal gown you choose to love for that day has possibly never been loved before.


We service brides in Cape Town. Far too often a bride is left to manage the details of that special day on her own. We know you are busy and thus in respect to that special wedding dress, we offer our full and considered support in choosing and fitting that special bridal gown.

The My Special Day Wedding Dress Team



Hi, I'm Karen. Whilst working for my Husband for the last 10 years I decided to find something to do on my own. My Special Day Bridal Boutique is something different, I love the fabrics, frills and lace and love the variety of options available. With my business mind I also incorporate both the fun & social side of what a wedding is all about. With a friendly outgoing look on life, I am able to remove the stresses of what every bride experiences when looking for her dress.



Hi I'm Cyanne and I have found a new venture with 'My Special Day'. I have spent many years designing dance wear and have now discovered a passion for wedding gowns.. Incorporated with an eye for style, class and timeless elegance there is never a dull moment when it comes to fittings. As a stylist I believe that every bride should leave our store confident and excited for the big day.



Hi I’m Cassidy. After working as a buyer for a large women boutique in London i moved to Cape Town with my husband and immediately fell in love with Somerset West. I have a keen eye for fashion and love the "over the top" design of the wedding dress industry. I travel to bridal shows and wedding expos looking for the designs that fit My Specials Days Boutique ideas, ensuring you have access to the top designs without the designers price tags.
