Re: What to wear for a Swiss Wedding?

Who cares what you wear, as long as there is cheese?

To my utter surprise I found out that in Swiss, unlike all other european countries, they have no protocol. I have been to one Swiss wedding and turned out in a normal three quarters dress only to find out that all the other girls were in JEANS!

Now I myself am marrying a Swiss and it's terrible... no one has an idea of basic wedding attire. They have no idea that a bridal car is required, nor that bridesmaids dress the same and that the colour and style is chosen BY the bride and chosen from a bridal shop (even though bridesmaid dresses are inexistent in Switzerland cos they usually just tell the bridesmaid to turn up in anything as long as its in the same general colour), AND not even the father of the groom thought it was obvious to turn up in a suit, not the mention having a sense of uniformity in the dress code of close family members!

So dress down as much as you can and maybe you can fit in the crowd! Frankly Swiss weddings are unamusing and the only focus is on drinking and playing games!
I agree that it's not very clear what the rules are here. I'm getting married in August and organizing everything is challenging, to say the least. It's very difficult to find bridesmaid dresses here as it seems that's not so much the custom. If anybody knows of a great formal wear or bridesmaid dress shop in the region of Luzern, that would be a big help

Re: What to wear for a Swiss Wedding?

Have you seen this site? http://www.heiraten.ch/ many beautiful second hand bride's dresses.

As for the bride's maids, could they not all go to the same shop and buy the same dresses?

Or lots of women rent their wedding/bridesmaid dresses. I've rented a bridesmaid dress on two occasions.
