‘I have been married for 23 years’: Couple’s wedding dressmaker says he’s not going to make another wedding dress because he’s too busy with work
In a wedding dressmaking business that has been around for 23 decades, one of the most famous dressmakers in the country says he has been married three times.
The dressmaker, who cannot be named for legal reasons, told CBC News he has worked in the industry for more than 30 years, but that he was so busy at work he has not had the time to make a wedding gown or a dress.
The couple’s wedding was last weekend in Miami, and the dressmaker said they had to travel to Canada to get the wedding gown from the bride’s hometown of Winnipeg.
They arrived in Toronto on Saturday, and he was ready to start on the gown by the time they arrived at their destination.
“We had to go through customs.
We had to get a permit for this to be a wedding and then we had to sign the papers.
I mean, we were just going to do this for a wedding.
I’m sure it’s very difficult for a lot of people,” he said.
A few days later, they were told that they were to pay $100 each for their dress, and had to wait two weeks for the final dress to arrive.
The first dress they received, the dressmakers family was thrilled.
“I think it’s one of those things that happens in the course of a day.
We’re going to get it back.
It’s a little bit of a thrill.
I just think we’re so lucky to have it,” he added.
The second dress, however, was much less exciting.
“It took us two weeks to get this dress.
We were just getting it from the airport to get into our hotel,” he recalled.”
So, that was really, really difficult.
It was a very long wait.”
The couple, who live in Toronto, were told they would have to spend another $100 for their gown and wait two more weeks for it to arrive, and then the dress was not theirs.
“The first time, the whole family was elated,” he remembered.
“Then they said ‘we’re going home.'”
He said he was in shock.
“When I walked into the hotel room that day, I was in a total shock.
I thought, ‘oh my God, this is really happening, this has happened.'”
The couple were told to wait at least two weeks, and that was when they decided to get married.
“That was one of my biggest regrets,” he continued.
“And when you’re in a situation where you’re going through a whole bunch of paperwork, it takes time.
And when it’s two weeks in advance and you’re still waiting for a dress, you’re just kind of like, what’s going on here?
We’re just going home.”
He said the couple is expecting their second child in the next couple of weeks, but added, “we’re just happy that we got it done and that we were able to get our wedding dress.”
“I’m just so glad that it’s going to happen.
I was really looking forward to it.
And I think we were very happy with it.”
