    I would recommend that every bride to struggles with this big decision to really make the effort to come to the Bridal pop up stand. The variety of dresses and the incredible staff makes it the perfect match. Was most definitely the best experience I had so far from my various dress fittings thus far. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for my dream dress. I can’t wait for the big day and will most definitely share photos of the day with you.

    My mother was fascinated with the exhibitions, she walk the line and had a little chat with each and came back with feedback and business cards. She was very impressed with the class of suppliers and the extraordinary services they provided. Each friendly and patient, and able to answer all her questions. The event also allowed for her to have that, were at other expo's and shows it is always a rush and on to the next person.

    We had the absolute best experience! The first gown I saw, I grabbed and tried on first. I fell in love ... felt like a bride for the first time! And to our shock, it was marked down to R2000.00! We couldn’t believe we could find my dream wedding dress at this amazing event!  Adel who helped us was so kind, sweet and helpful! Thank you so so much! I will definitely recommend the pop up shop to every bride to be!

    My friend, Bella, was amazed at the refreshments and food made available to us, because our fitting time slot was just before lunch. The slices of cake was such a treat and big enough to share. The barista with his coffees not just flirted with my mom and Bella, but also made the best coffee. It is nice to go to an event where we have the option of hot and cold beverages at reasonable prices.

    Die BigBridal Popup was vir my 'n ongelooflike ervaring! Die rokke was mooi netjies vertoon volgens die grote en kon maklik gevind word. Die dame wat my gehelp het was ook vreeslik behulpsaam. Dankie vir die puik diens!

Some photos from our debut event...

The 8th of July 2017 will be remembered as a breakthrough day in the wedding dress industry for South African Brides! Better known as the all-new and exciting annual SALE event namely THE BIG BRIDAL POPUP – and this event promises to “popup” all over SA!!!

The smell of excitement and expectation in the air, along with the fabulous coffee from #UrbanBarista made THIS day, a day to not only remember, but to diarize as your annual GO TO event in future!

Our unique and edgy city center venue #012cental was transformed into a bridal haven with exhibitors showcasing wonderful products and services, creating the opportunity for brides to interact with credible trusted service providers and help them along in their wedding journey!

For a few lucky brides, their wedding planning journey started early with a welcome boost into planning action in the form of AMAZING prizes!


With brands such as Demetrios, Lubellos, Beautiful, Badgley Mischka, Maggie Sottero, Pronovias and Sophia Tolli sparkling on the rails (naming just a FEW brands from top bridal houses) the choices were endless! Brides had fun with their bridal team with a glass of bubbly in hand of course and had the opportunity to fit dresses in the privacy of their own fitting rooms expertly crafted by #DDZ.

Thank you for all the lovely and happy brides that came to enjoy the day with us! We will see the rest of you soon… watch this space!!! #BigBridalPopUp


And then it was quiet, the very first #BigBridalPopUp event sale doors closed, and we had one task left to do. Give away the super cool inner city space that is #012central (YOU have to follow them!) to a very very lucky girl…

We sit…we ponder…we imagine the reaction of the lucky receiver on the other side of the line, expecting her to cry out with excitement and then it happened. WE cried (real actual tears) instead. When giving away amazing prizes one always hopes that the most deserving person will magically walk away with the prize and so it happened in that way!

The #BigBridalPopUp is not only a SALE but an event created by two very passionate individuals with a love for making a difference in the lives of their clients and setting the bar a bit higher when it comes to products and events, so being able to give back, gives us the thrills!!

Here we will be sharing with you the story of Ida. A REAL bride with a REAL story. We hope that her journey will inspire you, give you a few tips and befriend to you as you walk the path in your OWN journey toward your “I do’s”!
