Happy Endings Bridal is able to offer its dresses online 50% - 80% off retail prices for 2 key reasons.
--We operate with lower overheads than a local retail stores. We do not need to rent the store and employ sales staff or an alterations department.

All our dresses are quality guaranteed. We have passed SGS, and now we are preparing to applyISO9001 and ISO14001 to improve our competitive power. Also, our QC staff will check all the items carefully, when there’s no problem, items will be shipped out.

  • Chiffon: Delicate, sheer, and transparent -- made from silk or rayon, with a soft finish; often layered because of its transparency, making it popular for over skirts, sheer sleeves, and wraps.
  • Organza: Crisp and sheer like chiffon, with a stiffer texture similar in effect to tulle, but more flowing; popular for skirts, sleeves, backs, and overlays.
  • Satin: A heavy, smooth fabric with a high sheen on one side; very common in bridal gowns.
  • Silk: The most sought-after, cherished fiber for wedding dresses (and also the most expensive).
  • Silk-Like Satin: A smooth silk satin, with a glossy front and matte back.
  • Taffeta: Crisp and smooth, with a slight rib.
  • Tulle: Netting made of silk, nylon, or rayon; used primarily for skirts and veils (think ballerina tutus).

We do have fabric swatches available for purchase for only R250.00 per fabric type such as satin, chiffon and Martin, but you will also need to pay the shipping cost.

You can choose a standard size or give us your custom measurements. Please view our Size Charts Prior to selecting your size to order, we suggest reviewing the information provided in How to Measure. Even if there is some fluctuation in the size you need, all our dresses are made with a margin for modification or alteration. The modification or alteration can be made by your local tailor.

A number of alterations can be made:

  • Side seams and Back Seams - The side seams and back seam in the torso can be taken in or let out to make a wedding dress fit a bride. This is true even for gowns ordered to size. Wedding gowns are usually made to allow the side seams to be let out up to 3 inches or 1-2 sizes.
    Additionally, the back seam often can be let out slightly to size up further.
  • Shoulders - It is also common for shoulder seams to be taken in to bring up a gown.
  • Hem - The length of a dress can be shortened only and is affected by the height of the shoe you are planning to wear. Some gowns can only be shortened from the waist. Other gowns can only be shortened by taking up the hemline.
  • Bustle - The bustle is a way to hook the train up in the back so that the dress can be worn comfortably after the ceremony. Bustling a dress is part of the alterations for any gown that has an attached train.

Based on our past experiences, most of the countries do not charge import duty on low volume personal imports.
