Stunning variety of dresses. Felt like a closet straight out of Pinterest!

 -Darné Claassen



After waiting 2 long years, I finally got to wear THE DRESS! Lorette was my absolute best experience out of the whole wedding, she makes you feel like every dress was made to fit only you and you walk out feeling like an absolute queen! I got my wedding dress, veil and had my alterations done through her and honestly, you will never go wrong! ABSOLUTE BEST EXPERIENCE!

Wow! Waar begin ek...
Eerstens dankie tannie vir my droom trourok. Dit was alles en meer as waarvan ek kon droom.
Dankie dat tannie altyd die ekstra myl vir my gestap het en dit was nooit teveel moeite vir tannie nie. Dankie vir al die pas, meet en spelde insteek om seker te maak my rok pas perfek op my troudag. Dankie vir tannie se liefde en vriendelike gesig elke keer as ek my rok gaan pas het.
Tannie is 'n engel en ek sal Lorette Designs vir ENIGE bruid aanbeveel.
Baie dankie dat tannie gehelp het om my droom te bewaarheid.

- Liza Bennett



I had an idea of what I wanted my wedding dress to look like and after meeting with Lorette of Lorette Designs I knew she would help me create my dream dress! I knew this because after chatting for just a few minutes I realised that we were on the same page in terms of the design, material and…well with everything actually! I wanted something elegant, classic and timeless with not too much detail like lace or beading etc.
When my dress was coming together and as I put it on I said to Lorette it feels like stepping into "whipped cream". It’s very obvious that Lorette loves what she does. Lorette is extremely intuitive and in tune with the wants and desires of her clients. I think this is because she takes the time getting to know her client very well and never just assuming and/or going ahead with a big change but always seems to know exactly what you want. Towards the end a few things were added on and I just fell in love with my dress even more and I knew I would have to buy it as there was no way I was going to give it back! I love my dress and I know it’s a cliché to say but I felt like a Princess on my wedding day. My dress was everything I dreamt it would be and more! Thank you Lorette xxx
