Hallo^^ (Hello)

I like that picture but I would add to correct the apron (The ribbon buttoned at the front right). Because the traditional wedding dress is the dress called Dirndl. It's a very "Bavarian wedding dress". (The Bavarian culture will almost complete held for the German culture (almost))

In Germany (respectively Bavaria) was (from the middle class) worn almost always dark respectively black wedding dresses. That's a long time ago ... (my grandma has even married in black)

As I said, I like the picture ^^ Unfortunately, there are hardly any true traditional weddings (at least in my country, Bavaria)

I'm so sorry about the details like those ;A;
I got the design from some posts and these pictures on google:
so I combined them all and that's basically it...
I apologize about the mistakes ;A;
but at least I'm glad you liked the pic :hug:

The buckles and the hem at the end of the dress have irritated me a little bit. (That are don't exist in a normal Dirndl) And the apron is compulsory at every dirndl. In Bavaria will use for example Edelweiss as accessories. (Edelweiss is also the national flower of Bavaria)

You're Lucky that I'm from Bavaria^^ What a North German would have said, I don't want to know... (In Germany, Bavarians and "Prussians" (almost(!) all outside Bavaria) tease each other) The traditional dresses are totally different from each region in Germany.

I'm really sorry about those details, I didn't mean to offend anyone, specially Bavaria and North German.
I'll be more careful next time, and if you don't mind you can tell me about the traditions and costums from each region in Germany.

Oh! I'm not offended! No way ... I noticed these details are now times ...

It's all very complicated ... for example Lederhosen are almost ONLY worn in Bavaria (respectively Austria). A Prussian would never (But there are a few not Bavarian wear this yet, because it is a well-known traditional clothing.) wear.

I only know the Bollenhut from the Black Forest (because my grandmother was there time to cure), in Baden-Wuerttemberg (located west of Bavaria). There are as good as for each federal state its own traditional clothing. In Bavaria, for example there is still the Goldhaube.

I'm glad to hear that! ^^

Oh I see.... well that's really interesting and yeah I'll keep that in mind next time ^^
Thanks for letting me know these details, it's always nice to hear about the traditions from different places. I'd have never found about them and be 100% sure without your comments so thanks! c:

By the way, I was thinking about drawing Prussia as well so .... could you help me, please? /;_;/

Sure, I'll help you! Apropos, Traditional clothes here in Germany are called Tracht.

To find a traditional dress for Prussia proves to be very difficult, because Prussia had not fully northern Germany. It looked like a swiss cheese ... But I found a video about the West Prussia Tracht. [link] Unfortunately this video is in German, but I explain something:

from 0:25 she talks about the rock, which is available in red-black, red-blue and red-green. Classically however is the red-black.

from 0:40 she talks about the Jostenband that you can wear, but you don't need. (The apron is tied behind and the Jostenband tied over it)

from 0:57 talks she about the sleeves of the jacket, which offer the puff sleeves from the dress space.

from 1:12 she says that you can button up the jacket (with only a small hook)

This traditional dress is also known as Pomehrendorfer Tracht and was the only known regonalie Tracht of West Prussia. I think also in Prussia were the Trachten worn for weddings, simply because they could possibly not afford a wedding dress.
