A month or so ago we collaborated with Darling Juliet Photography for a styled bridal/bridesmaid shoot. Our beautiful models are wearing three custom pieces- one custom bridal kimono, hand-dyed with a train and two bridesmaids kimonos. We started doing wedding kimonos because 1- we make kimonos, and 2- it's really hard to have an original idea for your wedding these days. There are plenty of silky floral kimono robes out there, but it's really hard to find something to get ready in that is different. If you are getting married, we would love to hear your ideas for your special day! We are open to new colors, fabrics, laces and prints.
The other great aspect of Hey Wanderer's custom wedding kimonos is that they would be great gifts to pass on to your children. Everyone loves the idea of wearing their mother's wedding dress but often the wedding dresses from our mother's aren't really our style or they wouldn't fit. However, kimonos are timeless and can fit many people. How much would you love to get ready wearing what your mother wore when she got ready for her wedding? We are currently working with a bride who is providing us her grandmother's + her mother's wedding dresses to use to make her wedding kimono. We are so excited to see the final result.
Because we can make your kimono to your specifications, we can make a kimono that you could wear outside of your wedding. This makes these kimonos great bridesmaids gifts because they can get ready in them and wear them after the wedding.
