Let me introduce you to my “Wedding Rescuers”

Hi guys, remember how I stated in one of my last posts, that we are tied up in wedding preparations? You might wonder why we still have loads of things to organize so close to the big event. Well, that’s because some unexpected events happened and  we were forced to change our wedding location three weeks before the big day!!!

Big bummer, hm?! But it wouldn’t be us if we would let something like that get us down. And as my bridesmaid Nadi has put it: Who needs more than 20 days to organize a wedding?? Not us, that’s for sure! 😉

So this is a quick post about my “Wedding Rescuers!”

I would like to introduce you guys to what is in my opinion the best Indian Restaurant in Stuttgart: Namaste India in Stuttgart-Dürrlewang! That’s where we will be for dinner – and for the party afterwards 🙂

Where there is a wedding, there needs to be a cake! And thanks to  Café Geiler, also located in Stuttgart-Dürrlewang, there will be a veeeery yummy cake on the 20th of July!

But a wedding wouldn’t be a wedding without flowers. Well, I think Stuttgart-Dürrlewang is just the place to look for awesome Wedding Rescuers, because thanks to the team of Mayer Blumen, I will not only have a beautiful bridal bouquet but there will be also beautifully decorated tables at Namaste India!

The only thing, I did not find in Stuttgart-Dürrlewang, was the hair-do. Here, my Wedding Rescuer is called Nicole Kohler from the “Haarschneiderei” in Stuttgart-Vaihingen. She even squeezed in a hair trial last saturday and I LOVED the magic she performed on my head! 🙂

Not to forget all those wonderful people who supported us – and will support us on Saturday – to make our wedding the BEST WEDDING that was ever performed in someone’s garden (yes, you read that line correctly, the ceremony will take place in our garden! :-D)  and in an Indian Restaurant! It is very moving when you find out HOW GREAT your friends and families really are. Thank you guys. We love you. Can’t wait to share our special day with you this weekend!! !! :-*

Zaz – the great little artist was in Stuttgart last week

Has anyone been to the Jazz Open this year? I went to see Zaz, the French singer and little whirlwind last week.

I met my friends in the afternoon at Schlossplatz and we got some Cocktails from the bar Waranga. I tried a Watermelon Man – man was that thing goooood! 🙂

The stage was set up in front of the new castle at Schlossplatz – what a great place for a concert.

Then, Zaz entered the stage.

She’s so tiny but man, has she a voice!!

When you wonder, why I said at the beginning, Zaz is a little whirlwind and now, I only put up pictures of her standing still on stage, well that’s because all my other pics of her, running around and jumping up and down are too blurry :-)!


When the sun was setting, the stage looked even more dramatic.

Tied up in wedding preparations

Hi guys, I am totally tied up in the wedding preparations. It’s only two weeks left and there’s still loads of things to do. Most importantly, getting the dress ready, of course 🙂

It has arrived safely at Rena Sposa and I have had my “accessories appointment” already 🙂

What’s an accessories appointment, you might ask now. Well, that’s when you put on YOUR wedding dress (not the one on display) and try your jewelry, shoes etc. with it. Rena Sposa has a lot of stuff in stock but I had already found the perfect necklace, earrings and shoes for my dress a few weeks ago, so I brought them along for the appointment.

While in Vegas for our first wedding anniversary,  I found this cute pearl necklace plus earrings.


I love that they look quite delicate – and that they have pearls! 🙂

When I saw that the jewelry I had bought just went perfect with the dress, I was quite relieved. Now, it was time to try on the shoes. And the shoes are not normal bridal shoes. Why not? Well, they are bright red. I love them! 🙂

One thing I did get from the selection, Rena Sposa offers, is a fascinator. I tried several ones. Check out this funny one… 🙂


But this one was just a bit too big for me and the beige colour did not suit my dress very well. I got another one… 🙂

I also chose a bridal veil and a little jacke,t but unfortunately I cannot show you pictures of these as they show too much of the dress (of course, I would show you guys my dress without hesitation, but as Moritz is reading my blog too, I would spoil the surprise 😉 )

I had a great time at Rena Sposas and with owner Michaela Rena again, just like last time when I was there. I love this boutique!

When I was finished choosing all the accessories, I left my dress at Rena Sposa and they transferred it to the tailor. And one week after, I went to “Atelier Beerwerth”, where Johanna Beerwerth did a great job making the dress fit perfectly.

I have already tried it on after she had finished and it suits me great. You can imagine how happy I am! 🙂 Now, it is back at Rena Sposas, waiting for me to come get it!

So that’s all from the command center of wedding planning for the moment. As I mentioned, there’s still heaps to do until the big day arrives and I better get going… 😀
