The Story of the Wedding Dress: Tells a Maid of Honor

As promised: today Anna, Michael maid of honor at their Hanseatic weddingtells you by frustrating dream dress search with a Happy ending. Anna was naturally live and has held the fitting with a few snapshots for us.

No, “my” bride is not a ‘normal’ bride. We have since the engagement on new year’s Eve passed still no wedding magazines or crawls Web pages… We have still not even really talked about the dress. A lot traveling businesswoman must hire back many things… sometimes your own wedding.

Three months before the wedding – mid may – then a first date in fine bridal business. There are mother, mother-in-law in PES and I – the maid of honor.The seller is experienced. She asks about the wishes and the Search narrows ideas, for the first time. However, none of their proposals corresponds to the ideas of the bride. There are only two short dresses – unfortunately you are not eligible. Since we all agree. Also the long find no consent from us. You would have to remove half of the tulle fabric for a wedding on a tight Alster steamer. The date ends with pure frustration for the bride and a few tears!

Less than a week later the next attempt: this time we’re moving out just two.Our goal: smaller bridal shops and boutiques. So a really lavish wedding dress should not be this much is now clear… But what’s exactly should look like, we don’t know that yet. Tried the future bride, I take pictures. We don’t have the “AHA moment” with tears of happiness in mind.

We keep looking – for young designers in the Karolinenviertel – hip and will find it. For the first time we can imagine it: blue sky, sunshine, Alster steamers and the dress. It looks nice. But still no tears. At lunch after the bride is not quite so hopeless. We now have a fallback position (“fall back” as the business woman says).

Yet we keep looking. We’re going to a seamstress in Eppendorf. The small shop has a few wedding dresses in stock, but none matches our needs. Together we decide whether a private dress of the bride after could sew. And this idea is gradually turning into reality. We like the cut of the dress for a wedding, the seamstress draped around a little bit… It could be a “real” wedding dress.

On the way back to the car, we discuss the options. And then we pass on a Bridal dresses custom tailoring called “Calypso” . I live around the corner, but noticed the business has never been me. You have various wedding dresses in the shop window – from simple to complex, from short to long. The shop is empty, opening hours on Saturdays until 4: 00. It is 15:30. We try our luck and ring out.

The owners are really nice and helpful. The two sisters design and tailor all the clothes themselves. Also according to personal wishes. The bride after the day of the search now has a good idea of her dream dress. The two seamstresses suggest to draw a design on the fly.

On paper, the bridal gown is created! Incredible! So how it should look and look how it later will be accurate. The future bride, and I leave the shop after more than an hour – long after closing – time. Happy.

During your next appointment, the tip will be selected from two thick folders.The cut once again discussed. Then – after less than six weeks – the nettle sample. The dress is simple, white cotton cut and sewn. Fitting, neckline, length and seat can be ever adapted. The seamstress paints the changes with blue felt-tip pen, stakes out the dress with many needles. We are impressed. It already looks like on the drawing. We order shoes from the catalog.

A few weeks later. First try on top. Madness. The dress is almost done. The bride looks great… Now is the moment for a few tears of happiness. There’s request dress.

Last fitting shortly before the wedding. Mother of the bride, mother-in-law in PES and I are again. We toast with sparkling wine. It’s a dream dress.Designed and manufactured exactly according to the bride. We are looking forward to the many open mouths of the wedding party!

Thank you for this detailed report, dear Anna! In its full glory you can watch again the dress here . Annie Priayranjan shot the photo of bride and Maid of honor.

Perhaps is the story of Anna and Kathrin courage, which has not yet found her dream dress Yes you brides out there? A custom wedding dress, as it otherwise does not have – Oh, what a Happy ending!
