Efficient and professional! I got my dress and veil from OWB and thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience. I ordered my veil from them at the last minute and they went above and beyond to ensure that it got to me on time all the way in Zimbabwe.

I religiously watch Kleinfelds, Say Yes to the Dress. And this is the experience I received at Once Worn Bridal. Jace went above and beyond to give me the best bridal experience. She was attentive and gave me various options for my body shape.This boutique also cares about the environment and plants a tree for every dress that gets sold.I would recommend that every bride, with every body shape, visit this boutique and receive the amazing experience I did

I had a wonderful experience with Jacelyn and her team finding my wedding dress this month. She helps make sure you feel comfortable in your skin, and its not just for the skinny bride! I tried on 8 dresses, ranging from bohemian to full on beaded bridal satin and found my perfect dress with the 90 minute session. Their Covid Safety precautions are great, and I felt really safe there.

I had an absolutely phenomenal experience with Once Worn! They went above and beyond to fit me and my best friend in and we both had an amazing fitting. I bought a stunning dress there and am SO excited to wear it soon! The stylist is fantastic - her experience in the industry and her enthusiasm makes the whole thing personal and professional! She found both of us beautiful dresses that fit our different body types and styles! I would 100% recommend this company - they are environmentally friendly, support local and give you a one on one personal and altogether wonderful experience!

The team at Once Worn Bridal are committed to providing a bride with an experience of warmth, sincerity and luxury.Choosing THE dress can be a daunting experience, but after 10min of meeting Jacelyn, all my fears went away.The freedom to pick dresses that I wanted to try on, with the expert eye of Jacelyn was magical. There were no expectations and the appointment was truly an experience to remember. One I wish all brides could have.I cannot recommend this gorgeous small business enough, who are supporting other local designers with sustainability in mind.Thank you Jacelyn and Amelia. I finally feel like a bride!

If youre looking for an amazing range of dresses, along with a wonderful experience, this is the place to go dress hunting for your big day! The process of choosing a dress can be stressful, but the Once Worn team made it such a happy occasion for me, and on top of that they support local designers.I might consider having two dresses for my big day just to have the experience again!

Review №8

Once Worn Bridal was just fantastic!! The service from the get go was nothing short of exceptional. My dress was sold within 2 weeks. I would highly recommend Once Worn Bridal over and over again.. Well done ladies, keep it up!!

Review №9

I had the most INCREDIBLE experience at Once Worn Bridal. Not only is it a very cool concept that offers affordable, yes stunning, dresses, but the friendliness of the owners makes it that much more special. Jacelyn was so wonderful to me and my best friend during our double appointment and she gave such useful advice and input, making me try on dresses I would not have considered. As a result I found my DREAM DRESS in a style I had not considered before. Such a wonderful place to have the special moment of finding a wedding dress! Thank you so much.

Review №10

I had an amazing experience selling my wedding dress with Once Worn Bridal. I would highly recommend them! They are professional and so friendly. The boutique is beautiful!

Review №11

I had the best experience at Once Worn Bridal! Jace made my appointment so fun and made it feel like I was trying on dresses with a close friend rather than someone I had just met. Their selection is AMAZING! Every single dress I tried on was beautiful and of the highest quality. You know you went to the right place to find a dress when its tough to actually pick one because you love them all. I would definitely recommend Once Worn Bridal to anyone looking for a wedding dress.

Review №12

Once Worn Bridal has excellent customer service.I was given frequent feedback on how clients reacted to my dress and was given advice on how we could change prices to a more attractive level.I strongly believe that I could not have sold my dress without them and that I got a fair price for it. (I tried many other online solutions before them and I had no luck)

Review №13

I had the most wonderful experience at Once Worn Bridal. They were very helpful and I really appreciated how super Covid-safe and careful they were during the entire appointment. (And I found my dream dress). Highly recommended.

Review №14

I had the most amazing experience with Once worn bridal.Jacelyn and Amelia were so helpful throughout the entire process.I had so many dresses to choose from and I am at my curviest size Ive ever been in my life. I did NOT look forward to my fitting as I though there would be no possible way for me to look pretty in any dress which is bad I know, but the dress selection was just amazing. I felt like a princess in every single dress. They had my size and bigger!The guidance throughout the fitting also helped immensely and needless to say I walked out with the dress of my dreams. I cannot wait to get married now!O and BTW, I got the dress at 50% off! There is no way that I would have been able to walk out with such a spectacular, and not to mention, bespoke dress anywhere else at that price.The dress is spotless and ready to wear.10/10 Would recommend to anyone!

Review №15

Thank you Jace and Amelia for an incredible experience. This was my first (and last) fitting and i left with the perfect dress in hand. I can highly recommend Once Worn Bridal - they have an incredible selection of dresses available at affordable prices, and Jaces knowledge on wedding dresses and fittings makes the process so easy and truly memorable.

Review №16

I had the most special experience at Once Worn, Jace made me feel so special as a bride and so comfortable at the same time. Out of all the dress places Ive visited, Once Worn was my favourite and I found my dream wedding gown here. Once Worn is authentic and one of a kind.

Review №17

Best experience trying on dresses and so spoilt for choice. Would recommend to any bride out there.. this amazing place is a must.

Review №18

We had the most wonderful experience here. The owner is warm and inviting and made us feel so special by creating a unique space where you feel beautiful and comfortable. She is able to understand your vision and style, to assist in finding the dress that is perfect for you and your body. Love the business concept of being green and sustainable! Must visit for a bride to be!

Review №19

I had the absolute best experience at Once Worn Bridal. The consultant, Jace, was eager to help and truly made me feel comfortable while trying on their beautiful dresses. She gave constructive feedback, chose dresses that she knew would suit my body, allowed me to mix and match different styles and options, all the while making it a fun experience. I would 100% recommend them to any future bride!

Review №20

So youre engaged and getting married in like 2 months, what now eeeeekk? You attend a Once Worn Bridal pop up event in Joburg thats what you do! What a special experience it was finding my wedding dress through Once Worn Bridal. I had never tried on a wedding dress before, had no idea of what I wanted and had no idea of where to start or how to go about finding one. I was so overwhelmed with where to start and Jace helped me one step at a time to choose the perfect dress for me. The one thing I did know was that I did not want to spend a small fortune on a dress and did not want to get one made and I am so glad that I did not have to do either with Once Worn Bridal. This business is so special and deserves every credit it gets. I was made to feel like an absolute princess in choosing my dress and had so much fun while doing it. I had a hard time making up my mind at first as Jace has THE most beautiful collection of dresses to choose from, but also has her tips and tricks for narrowing it down to the one, which I did and had no regrets. I loved my dress and still love my dress and everyone else loved my dress on the day. Even though someone else had worn it on their day, I felt like it was uniquely designed for me. This is a definite go to experience that I would not hesitate to recommend. Take advantage of the pop up events in your area!! 💖

Review №21

I had the most wonderful time at Once Worn bridal! I was so nervous that I would not look beautiful in any dress as a more curvy bride, but it was the opposite. I felt beautiful and very comfortable. Jace was helpful, friendly and made us feel at home. Would also 100% recommend the amazing dresses at a fraction of the original price.

Review №22

I had the absolute best experience with Once Worn Bridal! It was my very first experience of trying on wedding dresses and it exceeding all my expectations! Jace was incredible from the beginning to the end. She made me feel so comfortable and made the whole process so exciting! She is an expert at what she does and I would highly recommend giving Once Worn Bridal a try before looking anywhere else! Thank you Jace, you are awesome!

Review №23

It was a pleasure dealing with the Once Worn Bridal team - from the booking through to follow up communications on my favourite dresses. The space is welcoming and professional ,as well as covid-compliant. The dress selection was great with a variety of silhouettes and sizes - all within budget.

Review №24

Firstly, Once Worn Bridal is situated in the most beautiful heritage building. You have the whole showroom to yourself and a wide range of beautiful designer dresses to choose from, across various sizes and silhouettes, at a fraction of their original price! Jacelyn is also absolutely fantastic - a super warm energy and she offers great advice about how to look your best on your special day. A bonus of supporting this business is that you are also doing your bit to make fashion more sustainable, which is always great.

Review №25

Such a wonderful company, with an awesome philosophy! Jace was wonderful to work with and had the bride’s needs as top priority during the entire consultation. The dresses are remarkable 😍 I would recommend them to everyone!

Review №26

What a pleasant experience. Jace at Once Worn Bridal is so down-to-earth and knows the ins and outs of her industry. She has the best interest of all parties at heart and sold my pre-loved dress within 2 months. I highly recommend Once Worn Bridal - whether you are looking to buy or sell!

Review №27

If I could give Once Worn Bridal 10 stars I would. Jace is wonderful, very kind, welcoming and was genuinely interested in helping find the best dress for me. The dress selection is amazing & very versatile in style (there are new styles added on a regular) and sizes (shes sourcing plus size too, which is amazing) . The pricing is really affordable too. I will DEFINITELY recommend to anyone looking to find a unique dress at affordable prices. I found my dress and veil here.

Review №28

Calling all brides to be! This is definitely the place to find your perfect wedding dress at the most affordable price! Who would have ever thought that it would be so easy and comfortable to find the perfect dress with Jacelyn assisting you all the way. Not only do they have the best selection of once in a lifetime dresses, but they focus on reducing the carbon footprint caused by the mass scale production of dresses. If I could give them a 6 out of 5 I would!

Review №29

Jace herself and the collection of dresses are superb. Attentive, caring service. Such a safe space to try on and get a feel for things. Highly recommend Once Worn Bridal.

Wow! I loved every minute of my fitting and walked out with my dream dress... Jace was super helpful and ensured that I was comfotable the whole time, she made sure I had lots of beautiful dresses to try on. Would 100% recommend for service and quality!

Review №31

What a phenomenal experience! Amongst rows of stunning dresses making you feel like youre inside a marshmallow, Jace is there to guide you to perfection. She made me feel so beautiful and special in every dress, making for an truly wonderful time for someone who is a little curvier and was nervous for this day. In 3 tries I found MY dress and couldnt believe it. We left happy, glowing and smiling from ear to ear, thank you for that Jace!

Review №32

Once Worn Bridal was truly a breath of fresh air in the whole dress shopping experience! Jace is lovely and incredibly knowledgeable. She made me feel really special, and the gin and tonics were just the cherry on top of a perfect appointment. I found Jace incredibly helpful and genuinely invested in me finding a dress that suited my look, body and budget.Would recommend this bridal salon to every bride, not just ones looking to shop sustainably for their big day.

Review №33

Review №34

I had the most amazing experience with Jace at Once Worn Bridal. I came into the store with an expectation of just having a look and came out with an amazing dress after spending over 2 hours.If you are on the hunt for an amazing dress, awesome conversion and an amazing cocktail on the side, this is the place to be.. trust me!Thank you so much Jace and so excited to see your store grow and you are definitely fore-fronting sustainable shopping.

Review №35

We had such an amazing experience! Jace was the loveliest and made us feel so comfortable! There was a beautiful selection of dresses (that is updated all the time) and veils and showcase local designers! Definitely cant recommend enough!

Review №36

This must be the most amazing experience Ive had. Jace- who helped us with the fitting... is absolutely the most sweetest, fun, and professional woman Ive met. She made my sisters experience unforgettable and definitely let her say Yes to the dress :)She made us all feel welcome and comfortable and I would recommend any bride to be to go give them a visit ❤️❤️ You will not regret it

Review №37

Amazing experience, had my first fitting here and it was the best experience. A dress style for every bride at amazing prices. The owner knows your style before you do! Best best best!

Review №38

I had the most incredible experience with Jacelyn at the pop-up in Jhb. The range of dresses for one, were phenomenal. And secondly, Jacelyn was so knowledgeable, professional and took time to get to know you so as to give you a personalised, one on one experience. I said YES to a beautiful dress at a fraction of the original price as it had been worn once by a bride. One way to make your big day a little more environmentally friendly. Thank you Jace!100% recommend to any bride to be!

Review №39

I had the best first experience wedding dress shopping with Once Worn Bridal! The dresses are absolutely beautiful and are of high quality, she takes time to pick the best dresses for her clients, you really get your monies worthJace is spectacular, I gave her a few ideas and she knew exactly what I wanted! The time spent felt so personal and comfortable because it can be a really overwhelming time for women, I did not think Id leave with a dress after one fitting but I did! I got to say yes to the dress all because of Jace!

Review №40

I was quite apprehensive about the fitting process. Worried that it would be too crowded with too many options. What a surprise! It was an amazing experience from the moment we arrived there- and we almost didnt leave! The ladies are so professional and kind and the dresses are amazing and beyond. It was impossible for me to choose even my top three! Every single dress I tried on was a winner. This experience really kickstarted my excitement about my wedding arrangements and I cannot thank Jace and the team enough for their kindness and willingness to help and support in any way possible. They are also super environmentally friendly and Covid-19 aware. We actually went to celebrate afterwards because the fitting experience was something so special! I would highly recommend them. Thank you again!!.

Review №41

What a pleasant experience! I received the warmest welcome and immediately felt so comfortable and at ease. Jace talked me through everything at first and then I had a look at what was available. I was amazed at all the beautiful gowns that she had. Its dresses that you see on Pinterest but dont find in usual bridal shops! I ended up not taking a dress in the end, but even long after Jace still followed up with me. I will be going back soon since I still havent found a dress. I would definitely recommend Once Worn Bridal to anyone!

Review №42

I had the most wonderful experience at Once Worn Bridal and cannot recommend it enough! From start to finish, Jace was so welcoming and helpful. She made me feel comfortable by having all COVID-19 protocols in place while also being accommodating. Besides for the excellent service, their dresses are also stunning! They have a huge selection of styles for all sized brides, which was something I was really nervous about. Thank you, Jace and Once Worn Bridal, for a memorable dress fitting experience!

Review №43

I had such a good experience at Once Worn with Jace. She is really kind and accommodating and went the extra mile to source dresses that I would like. I would highly recommend Once Worn to any bride on the lookout for her dream dress!

Review №44

With the best experience, advice and super helpful with all the beautiful dresses that were amazing to try on. Jace is a wonderful person who loves making anyone feel good in their body and as a curvy bride it is hard to feel confident in a dress that is seen much prettier on a slimer bride. Fitting on a dress with Jace felt like you are at home and the way she made me feel in it wanted to bring tears to my eyes with the way she told me to love my curves and to be happy. Finding my dress was the best thing ever with Jace. I would recommend any curvy bride to her if you want to feel the warmth and love instead of a oh we dont have your size in store. She is really helpful and it comforted my heart in knowing I was going to look amazing on my wedding day. If you are a curvy bride and still looking for your dress this is the place to go!!! The story they have is beautiful and I hope more women can support it and embracing their curves. Each woman is beautiful and we can shine together when we can make a difference in someones life whatever it may surly has made a difference in mine.

Absolutely beautiful dresses, great service, felt super special and loved my gin cocktail.

Review №46

What a wonderful experience! I had been to a few dress stores before visiting Jace at Once Worn Bridal and this was, by far, the best experience! Not only because I found my dress (yay!), but because of the whole approach, philosophy and service offered. I love what they stand for, supporting local and sustainability. The dress selection is vast and caters for ladies of all sizes and tastes. Jace has a wonderful manner and makes you feel so comfortable - she also has a great way to clear your mind and help you decide on what you really want from a dress and what you feel your best in (for those of us who can be so indecisive!). All topped off with a cocktail to sip while you browse the rails and great music to create a atmosphere that makes your wedding dress search just so much fun.Thank you Jace for a great experience and helping me find my dress! x

Review №47

Review №48

Where does one even begin to explain such a highlight and gem?Location:Conveniently situated a mere 3-5 minutes off of the N2 in Somerset West, ample parking in a secure private estate, super easy to find... grand formal waiting room in a well maintained beautiful heritage building.... the studio upstairs is just mwa👌 absolutely gorgeous!! Silk, satin, beautiful dried flowers and grasses, gold and glass. Absolutely gorgeous studio!Hosting:Hosting out the top drawer. Offered drinks on arrival-usually alcoholic drinks like champers, G&T etc, but it with being lockdown, it is orange juice, refreshing lemonade tea or cappuccinos were up for order. We (my one bridesmaid and I) were made to feel right at home and comfortable by Jace(lyn). While she made our drinks we were allowed to have a look at the ABSOLUTELY STUNNING dresses on the rails. Jace came back and I was invited to give a lil background info into who I am, how my future groom and I got to this point of being engaged, what our envisioned wedding is and most importantly... What the dream dress looks like.Dress fitting:Then the fun began. Jace walked right over to firstly pick out the exact same dress I had being eyeing (which in the end turned out to be THE ONE- my very own yes to the dress). Although within 15mins Id said yes to the dress, still 60 mins remained. Jace, Jods and I had much fun trying on other dresses (like the one attached) - and Jace even let me try some one that were totally not my style but were just ones that I was keen to try... Just for fun! It was an absolute blast! We laughed, we dreamed... It was the ultimate highlight of this wedding planning journey so far for me (followed with a Pajamas and Jam brunch-it was one of the best days of my life!!) all the dresses are so unique and so beautiful. And the prices-just wow wow wow!! Still gobsmacked that such perfection... All that time and the gorgeous materials that have gone into those masterpieces can be sold at such affordable prices.Their values/the business%At the core of the business is a passion for sustainability. Think:- recycling- repurposing- reuse- reduction of waste- sustainability of the South African local designers and therefore- sustainability & empowering of local South Africans, their careers and their livelihoods.From dried flowers to thinking as far as to what material the water is served in /poured out of. ❤️ It!!I could write so much more. But Ill leave that for another time, or for someone else. What I do want to say is:Thank you Jace.Thank you Once Worn Bridal. Thank you White Lily bridal designs. Thank you thank you thank you. I cannot wait to receive my dress and wear it on my wedding day! This whole experience felt so personal and special. Even in these weird covid times, I felt special. It felt real. Thank you for making this such a memorable experience-a dream come true!!
