Urgent Wedding Help Pl Ladies!!!

Hi... Im going nuts trying to find wedding stores in and around ZH!!!!! I have the dress but need a veil and corsage!!!!!

Its unbelievable but Zorro will not allow you to buy ANYTHING in there if you don't buy the dress to from them- hmpf with nose up in the air et al!

And then there's Mery's where everything is a minimum of 500 bucks!!!!! from a damn corsette (as plain as it gets) to the simplest veil!!!! really its just net with the thinnest possible lining of lace at the borders...

I have 3 days left... Does anyone know of any places please???

pl help!! I'm flippin out!!!!!!!!!

Re: Urgent Wedding Help Pl Ladies!!!

Hi Arena,

You could try Pronuptia near Zurich Hauptbahnhof. Contact details here:
http://www.pronuptia.ch/de/zuerich.htm

A friend of mine had her dress (bought in the UK) altered there, no problem. Some other shops would only alter stuff if you had bought it from them too.

Good luck!!

The pronuptia in France is known to make their money from alterations more than selling dresses. I guess it might be the same here too.

There's a bridal shop right across the road from where I live. I think the address would be Universitaetstrasse 83. But if you take tram 9 or 10 to Winkelriedstrasse tram stop, it's right there.

The shop next to it is I think a man's formal dress hire shop. I'm not sure if they do women's things.

Good luck with the wedding.

Re: Urgent Wedding Help Pl Ladies!!!

Hi, what length of veil are you looking for, if it's long one I have one you could borrow if you have no luck finding one.

Re: Urgent Wedding Help Pl Ladies!!!

i know it's abit late, as the 3 days you had left are almost gone, but there's a list of shops grouped by postal code on this page:
http://www.hochzeitstipps.ch/adrkleider2.htm#08

by the way, i have seen that C&A also has wedding dresses and accesories ... dont know exactly what and how the quality is, but it's maybe worth checking it out, if you want soemthing fast and not too expensive .....

I'm also on wedding dress hunting, but have a bit more time ....

Good luck!

Re: Urgent Wedding Help Pl Ladies!!!

How did your hunt for the veil & corsage go? I'm presuming you found what you were looking for? And most importantly: how did your wedding go?

Re: Urgent Wedding Help Pl Ladies!!!

If its any sort of dress you are after Karen Millen is great! (disclaimer: my friend runs the store in Zurich)

My friend bought all her bridesmaid dresses from there.

There is one in Zurich and Geneva.

Good luck and hope the day is perfect for you!!

Re: Urgent Wedding Help Pl Ladies!!!

LOL!! Lou, Richard and Oldhand... You guys are so funny!! Thanks alot for asking and being interested...

I finally bought that veil from Mery's as i had no luck in finding another one for a better price or prettier! My husband thought it was worth the money so I guess we're good on that front (phew!) heheh

As for the wedding, we had it on the beach in Sicily with poeple from 10 different countries present. It was small but beautiful. The sun was shining, people crying (music and vows) otherwise smiling (drinks and food) and it was the most perfect day, a dream wedding worth every single tear, frown and wrinkle!

Re: Urgent Wedding Help Pl Ladies!!!

Zuricher thank you for the info. I had got my dress taken care of a while ago. My mom was my bridesmaid and had her outfit sorted out too.

Sigrid, thanks and since you have more time on your hands I'm sure Zuricher's post can help!

Good luck for your wedding. May it be as beautiful and perfect as you dream it to be.

Re: Urgent Wedding Help Pl Ladies!!!

Did you try looking online? I found everything online...from the veil to the shoes...even my dress. Tried on a similar one in a store and then Shopped online. Don't know if it'll work for you, but just a suggestion. Good Luck! And don't forget to BreAThe!

Re: Urgent Wedding Help Pl Ladies!!!

Hi there,
I was just wondering how your wedding went?
I just posted a message today, as I need some advice...
Can you help? I am looking for a good florist that makes bouquets, button holes and corsages, as well as a makeup artist and hairdresser (not too expensive) for the wedding day. Can you recommend anyone?
Thanks,
Tala
