Re: wedding dresses

I had to go through the process of buying a wedding dress while living in Germany, and I can tell you the best you can do is to go get it in Portugal. The price difference can be staggering and worth the plane trip.

The only problem is that you usually need to go to the shop 2 times - to order and to do the fitting.

In any case, a quick search in google gave me a few results for Konstanz, including what appears to be a pretty big shop.

Yes. I took the liberty of checking your profile because I suspected as such due to your username (I am also Portuguese)

I bought mine in Porto. I am not sure where you are from, but in Porto most of the stores are relatively close to each other, so you can check them out rather easily. They also have the advantage of being already more... how to put this... "suitable to the portuguese woman shape"... so you might even get a dress that doesn't need fitting.

But please be aware some dresses need a few months to be done. So if you are marrying this year, you should start looking stat.

Re: wedding dresses

Do you live in Staffa or in Stäfa? Because if it's a spelling mistake and you actually live in Stäfa, I can meet you for a coffee, and we can speak in Portuguese (I tried looking for Staffa in google maps, but didn't find it).

Re: wedding dresses

12 minutes away from the train station, up hill (hence so many minutes ... it's a steep road). I'll send you a pm as soon as I am home.
