SADONI Bride of September 2017

Finding SADONI dress was such a big coincidence – or maybe destiny!? My appointment at bridal boutique Brautzimmer in Salzburg was almost finished and I got changed in the fitting room. My maid of honor suddenly said from the outside: “Julia, there are some dresses coming in…”! It turned out that Sevim’s, Brautzimmer’s owner, next appointment wasn’t a future bride, but SADONI designer Hamid Sadoni and his Italian partner Luigi who had arrived to present the wedding dress collection 2018.

They immediately offered me to try everything I wanted and although I was already quite “exhausted” from the fitting, I could not resist since the dresses seemed so beautiful to me!

When I put MY dress on, the elegant lace, light and soft tulle and outstanding colors immediately made me feel certain that THIS was the dress I was searching for. I experienced the special moment I never thought I would have when trying on a dress and instantly knew that it was MY dress! After hearing Hamid’s story, I was even more convinced that this is the right brand for me. SADONI’s story is actually very intercultural and in my daily work I deal with people from different cultures; also my husband comes from another county. I could identify myself with the story “behind” the dress and the brand. Apart from that, I have to emphasize the excellent quality and the fact that the dress is 100 % a European product, designed in Oslo and fabricated in Latvia, which I appreciate very much. SADONI offers such perfect combination of simplicity, elegance, lightness and originality.

How was I feeling on the wedding day? Beautiful and just like ME (instead of wearing a princess disguise). Moreover, very special since most certainly I was one of the first brides wearing this SADONI dress of the collection 2018 in September 2017!

A tip to the future bride is – you really feel it when you put on YOUR dress! Until that moment – enjoy trying on many different gowns – you do it (hopefully) just once in a lifetime!

For us the wedding mood we agreed on was perfect, since it was very uncomplicated, easygoing, a little bit unconventional and without – in our view – old fashioned traditions, which just would not have fitted us.We decided on having a civil ceremony in Marble Hall of Salzburg’s (my hometown and where we live) Mirabell Palace, which is considered one of the most beautiful wedding halls in the world. Our closest relatives and friends were present, apart from that we installed a livestream for my husband’s relatives and friends in Spain (he is Spanish) and friends of mine who weren’t able to come. A guitar player brought a little bit of Spanish spirit to our wedding. Afterwards we had lunch in a modern restaurant with a gorgeous view to the Castle of Leopoldskron which is famous for the movie “Sound of Music”. In the evening we met with some more of our loved ones and friends in a wine and cocktail bar in the city centre which also serves delicious tartes flambées and other delicacies – it was an informal setting without seating plan, speeches and long tables.
