Wedding season is officially upon us, which means that our wardrobes need to get photo op ready. Because if there is one thing that all women know (and no man will ever understand) it’s that we cannot outfit repeat when we know there are going to be so many pictures taken.
So I took the liberty of putting together some of the best places in SA to get ensembles for the occasion (rental options included – because sometimes our bank accounts don’t seem to keep up with our vision boards).
