Jola and Radek | October 6, 2018 | Grodków, Poland
Before the church ceremony guests have gathered together to witness the blessing and symbolic farewells with parents, relatives, and friends. After the blessing, we have thanked, hugged and kissed our parents and the wedding party prepared to leave for church. Radek and I were riding together to the church. On our ceremony my father walked me to the altar. While we were leaving the church, the Wedding March of Mendelssohn was played by the organist. Guests have left earlier and were waiting in line in front of the church. Before the official congratulations our guests were throwing small pieces of flowers and rice. It was a really unique moment.
After the ceremony, we went to the palace where the wedding party was held.There we were welcomed with Bread and Salt and two glasses of champagne. We have drunk it and we have thrown the glasses behind our backs. The glasses were broken – it means we will leave together long and happy. The reception has started and the dinner was served. First dance has opened the dancing part of the wedding. Many games and attractions were taking place during the evening. At midnight the unveiling and capping ceremony (called oczepiny) took place. All single ladies/men have circled us as the maid and groom of honor have been standing behind us and have been removing the veil and the tie. At this moment, I was officially considered a married woman and Radek was considered a husband.
Jola’s Wedding Dress Search
Before I picked my dress I have seen about 100 dresses and tried on 20. I was dreaming about a royal long train, princess grown with long sleeves. One day I was very curious and I have decided to try mermaid dress with 2 trains. Once I have done it I knew it was a perfect match for me. I have been given 3 different dresses in one grown. Superb royal style version for church, perfect tulle dress for first dance and a siren shape dress for the evening reception. Guests had impression I was wearing 3 different dresses, although I was only taking off a special layer at certain time.
How She Felt In Her Berta Gown
Princess, Superb, Unique
Why She’s Selling Her Wedding Dress
I’d like other women to wear it and enjoy her wedding in royal style. This is an excellent grown with 3 dresses and I am happy to see other bride wearing it. By selling it I’m certain it will bring a lot of happiness to other bride. In my view it would be a pity for the dress to be kept in my wardrobe so by selling it I give the dress the chance for new owner and ‘life’ at next wedding.
