Vow renewals

We wedding planners always tend to say that you only get married once! The reality is quite diferent as the rate for divorces are sky rocketing 🚀

But lets not fall to depressing and dark questions and thoughts! The truth is that there is another and way more romantic way of having another wedding - Vow renewals ❤️ 

Mostly an American tradition, vow renewals are spreading to the continent of Europa. Loving couples who have been married for some years are embrasing this foreign tradition, as a means to celebrate their love to each other one more time. 

And why not? Is love not the most important thing to celebrate? Then why only do it once? 

We love both weddings and vow renewals because we love love ❤️

Find inspiration to your vow renewals here and have a nice weekend with your loved once 🙏🏻

The artsy airbrushed wedding dress

In an earlier blog post I have already challenged the thought that a wedding dress is supposed to be white! At the NY Bridal Fashion Week in April designer Naeem Khan showed a wide variety of colored wedding gowns. The colorful bridal decor trend has flourished, and now we can add a new trend to this lovely wedding spectre - the airbrushed wedding dress! 

 When the artist Taylor Ann got married this summer, it was in a one of a kind artwork of a dress. Bought in a regular wedding dress shop she had taken this gorgeous but quite regular wedding dress and airbrushed it with bright colors. By that she created a very original and brand new wedding dress look.

At the first glans you might think dip died - it is not! You can learn more about how to airbrush a wedding dress here

The reason why I personally admire this bold choice so much, is that she used the colors in her dress as a guide line to the general wedding theme and decor. Even her hair was in the color scheme, and I simply love that!

And then she topped it off with a pair of big boots - at a forest wedding - ingenious!!! 

image.jpg

 A wide palette of colors was used, and still nothing seamed uncoordinated or messy! 

Off cause it goes without saying that this is not for everybody, but for the brave, untraditional and colorful bride this might just be the solution. For more information and inspiration you can always check the two links below! 

Now enjoy the rest of these amazing wedding photos, sug in the artsy inspiration and enjoy the rest of you weekend 💜💙❤️💛💚

Are you the perfect wedding guest?

Nobody is flawless and flewlessness is not expected, but there is no reason not to strive for perfection!

Most of us know how to conduct ourselves in a normal day to day setting, and being a good wedding guest simply comes down to manners. How well behaved are you?

We truly think the world of our guests, but a little list of helpful guidelines never goes un handy. 

1) The RSVP-ing  

RSVP as soon as possible, and most important NEVER after the given responds date. The way to respond is often written in the invitation. Today it is often by phone. When calling make sure that you reach the correct person, and by all means never leave you answer on the answering machine or write them a text! Whether the RSVP is to the host or an second person, make sure to given the person your gratitude. If the RSVP is not given to the host, still make sure to thank them right away for including you in their celebrations.   

Originaly the polite way to RSVP was in the same manner the invitation was given. If by phone one could RSVP by phone, if by letter the responds should be given by letter. This practice is almost gone but personally I still RSVP by letter on a written invitation. It is just so romantic and different to receive a letter instead of a phone call. If you would like to impress and do something special for the host, then try RSVPing by a hand written letter.  

My last comment on this subject is very important! If it is only your name in the invitation, then only you are invited! It sounds simple, but unfortunately it is not for everybody. Plus one is only if mentioned, and you cannot expect your brand new boyfriend to be invited, and you can certainly not ask for it. The same thing goes for children. If they are not on the invitation, then they are not invited. This goes for almost all children, except infants. They are so pedended on their mother, that the hosting couple would expect it to be present, when inviting the parents. But when it comes to weddings you should expect it to be children free, unless is says otherwise on the invitation.    

2. The gift  

This is quit easy. Stick to the registered gift list, and if you think you have spotted the holy grail of wedding gifts and it is not on the list, then make sure it can be returned for a full refund. As for the budget, it is up to you, but wedding gift attends to have a higher budget than other celebratory gifts.

3. Dress code 

The dress code is often written in the invitation, which makes it easy to follow, but if you are in doubt then ask. 

There is however one very important rule for women, and it is indisputable! DO NOT wear white. And by white I mean any types of white - off white, cream, eggshell ect. Sometimes even very light gray is to bold. If there is any chance it can be mistaken for white in pictures or at a distance then it is a no go. This is a matter of better safe than sorry. But you can be partial white. A good rule to follow is that a maximum of 50 % of your in tire outfit can be white. If you for example are wearing a flowered dress with a white background then at least 50% of the dress should then be covered in coloured flower print.   

By many it is also considered ill mannered for women to wear black. I to do not find black appropriate, but is is not as big a problem as white. But if you can leave the black dress in the closet then it would be preferable. 

If you need some inspiration for the perfect wedding guest outfit then check this out.

As for he gentlemen the dress code is quit simple. Do not overdress the groom or the nearest family, and do not wear smoking before 5 pm.  

Often there is time between the ceromony and dinner, were you can change you outfit into fx long dress and smoking. 

4. Attend the ceremony 

You might not believe in good or the message of the bible, but I you are invited to the ceremony then you should attend. Apparently the bride and groom wants you to be there - so be there. Keep you opinions to yourself and do not fall asleep 😜

5. At the table introduce yourself to everybody at your table. 

For next many hours you are supposed to talk and have fun with these selected guest who shares your table. To secure a good beginning make sure to introduce yourself to each person, and try to remember their names. There is a reason the host placed you with these people - you must have something in common. Make it you business to add to a great and festive atmosphere by being dedicated to you table. 

6. Listen to The toastmaster

It is not an easy job being the toastmaster. The pressure is huge and the deadline short. Try you at most to help the toastmaster by listening to his or hers instructions. This means being quiet during information and toasts, and most of all respect the time line or pauses and toilet breaks. When the toastmaster announces a 10 minute break then check you watch and be back on time. Being back means being seated at the correct time. If a toastmaster needs to round up all guest at a wedding, telling them that it is time for a toast, it can be exhausting and it can spoiled the good mood. Help the toastmaster make everything run smooth. 

7. Do not get to drunk during the dinner.  

You can always get as drunk as you want after dinner, but during you are expected to be social and delightful. Nobody want to be seated next to the way to drunk cousin. This goes for it self.

8. Be attended and interested

You might not be the most outspoken or loud person in the crowd. Maybe these big weddings make you a bit uncomfortable and in the end more quiet than normal. Even though it can be difficult, please try and come out of you shell. The bride and groom placed you with some people they apparently thought you would click with - and most often they are wright. But you bare a huge part of the responsibility for making this happen. Be attended to the persons around you. Listen to the conversations and be interested. Ask open questions and look for some common ground. You might ask about how they know the bride and groom, where they are from, their work or their hobbies. This is a social event, so be as social as your nature alows you. 

9. Have a party

The party is not there for you, you are there to have a party. The greatest fear of all newly weds is that their wedding party is going to flop. They (hopefully)will never be able to do this again, so they have to ace it the first time. But what if the guest do not like the food or the company? What if they do not like the music or do not dance? What if they are not having fun? As an attending guest it is your job to get the party started. Even though you are not the best dancer or do not like to dance, the good guest would still dance in order to get the party starting. Once the dance floor is full, you can always relax. But all good parties need a good kick off, and if everybody just sits down and start talking, it will never happen. The hosting couple provides the scenery, but it is up to the good guests to make the party happen for them. Be attentive and notice if the party is going on as is should. If not, help the couple reaching the wanted party level. 

Do not leave the party to early unless you have a REALLY good reason.  

10. Say thank you

Again it should be obvious, but it is not. You can never say thank you to many times at these sorts of events. Make sure to thank the bride and groom, by complimenting the food, wine, venue and the party. They need the confirmation. You must also show your gratitude towards the parents of the bride and groom, congratulating them on their children and saying thank you for a lovely party. Parents often pays for some or all of the wedding. 

You gratitude should as a minimum be showed after the ceremoni, after dinner before you turn in and the next day before you leave.

Now how did you do? Are you the perfect wedding guest, or are there room for improvement?  

As I said in the start - nobody is perfect! The best advice I can give you is to have a nice time and show the couple that you are truly enjoying yourself.   

 

Have a nice weekend 😎

Serenity Cupcakes

One of the things I love most about Copenhagen is it's authentic feeling. Narrow cobblestone streets surrounded by old buildings with beautiful details. This is truly a time warp creating the unique atmosphere that is Copenhagen. In one of these streets close to The Kings Garden and Rosenborg Castle we found a shop that reeks the essence of the Copenhagen feeling.

The interior design is kept in a douch coler scheme, with chandeliers, soft pillows and rustic furnishing, providing the cozy feeling that is "hygge". As the outline is soft and sweet, so is the product of this shop - delicious and cute cupcakes of all sorts of colors and flavours are presented behind the counter. There is a cupcake for every persons. Neetly decorated with a steady hand they just look so yummy!

Here are some of the flavours:

Banana Bumblebee
Apple Blossom
Carrot Karma
Bohemian Raspberry
Blueberry Rain
Chocolate O'dream
Rocky Mountain
Summer in Rio
Autumn in New York
Red Liquorice Devil
Ginger Infusion
....and many more

The name of this heavenly place is Serenity Cupcakes, and it was founded in 2011 by the present owner Mariam Mistry. Mariam bakes all the cupcakes herself. Starting early in the morning, so that the newly baked cupcakes are ready for sale in the afternoon. 

This respect for and striving after quality and a high end product, is was has given Mariam so much success. Every aspekt of her business is the best of the best, from the ingridiences used for the cupcakes to the Royal Copenhagen china the cupcakes are served on. The the is from the recognized the house Perch's and the coffee comes from Amokka. 

Her sense of style is also why we at The Wedding Company recommend her. As cupcakes for weddings are very trendy and highly short after, it was important for us to find the absolute best cupcake provider we could. The finish, quality and taste was extreamly important, but also the flexibility and professionalism of Mariam was noticed. She will without a doubt be able to make you the dream cupcakes for your wedding reception. Whether you would like a special flavour, a personalized sign on top of the cupcake or an entire cupcake tower, she will be able to help you reach your cupcake goal. 

Did I mention that she does also provide frosting classes for the bachelorette party? Well she does!

Stop by her shop and sug in the spirit of the Serenity universe and hopefully a great cupcake. And by all means tell her we said hi 😘

Feminine Coolness and A Couple

Skipping through bridal magazines, wedding blogs and other inspirational wedding sources, one gets an image of what the perfect bride looks like. As today's wedding dress fashion is very avantgarde, feminine and girlish, so has the styling of the bride often tended to be. But fear not - the edgy bride is returning! 👏🏻

One of our favorite Danish wedding blogs A Couple (link below) is bringing feminine coolness back in its shoot by the same name. Sunglasses, natural makeup, edgy accessories and untidy hair put together with the fashionably and feminine lace dress create a laid back and cool bridal look. We simply love this effortless look and the feeling of comfort that shines from the bride. 

Check out A Couple here and enjoy the amazing shoot below!

Bonfire Wedding

Yesterday we Danes celebrated St.Hans evening with barbecue, bonfires, singing and rosè wine. Standing in the warmth of the fire with family and friends watching the sun go down over the sea, was one of the most calm and pleasing moments of my 2016. The simplicity of the concept was so pure and unspoiled, and it gave way to a feeling of total happiness. Peace, nature and quietness consumed us as we stood there watching the flames.

It was the essence of romance - the perfect wedding setting. Getting married on the beach by the fire while the sun sets, only joined by those closest to you - I would definitely say "I Do".

I am inspired by this concept, but when I started searching on "bonfire weddings" almost nothing came up. This is appearently not a normal theme for a wedding, eventhough most of us have attended a bonfire party. 

Lets brainstorm the idea - When I am thinking bonfire wedding, I see barbecue, rosè wine, beach setting, blankets, marshmallows, acoustic guitar, community singing, natural flower decorations, long tables with benches, and torches surrounding it all. 

Do you have any bonfire wedding visions?

Beneath you will find some pictures to illustrate my vision of the perfect bonfire wedding.  

 

Enjoy and have a nice weekend 😘

The history and traditions of the bridal bouquet

The bridal bouquet is for most brides a bare necessity.  Whether one is planning on a big church wedding with reception and dinner at a magnificent castle, or just keeping it simple and planning on a city hall wedding, the bridal bouquet is the most common and sort after bridal accessories. The Veil, the big dress, the blue, the old and the borrowed are not always represented, but it is seldom that you come across a bride without a beautiful bouquet.

It is tradition for the groom to provide the bouquet, but in most cases the bride or the bride’s mom has a say in the design of the bouquet.

But if you are a traditional groom, we have some tips for you. When you go to the florist there are a few information’s that will help in designing the perfect bouquet for your wife to be. They may want to know the color of the dress – and yes I do know it is probably white, but what sort of white color is it? Cream, champagne, clear white or perhaps egg shell. It might help to bring a fabric sample from the dress..

It is also a good idea to bring a photo of the bride. Her statue is important, because it says a lot about which bouquets she can pull off. The bride is not to disappear behind a mountain of flowers. As the bridal gown may change the statue a bit, it can be a good idea to know which type of dress the bride will be wearing – is it a ball gown, A-line or maybe a  mermaid gown?

Our last recommendation should be the easy one, but can prove to be difficult – trust your instincts. One must assume that the groom would be the person knowing the bride best, but when it comes to following instincts it can be a tough job being a groom. Just remember that then it comes down to it, the most important thing for the bride is that her husband to be is enchanted with her looks. She will love the bouquet you choose because you choose it. This last rule apply to most bride’s. As a  groom you can only sat praise to the fact that tradition tells you to choose the bouquet and not the dress.

The bridal bouquets as we know it dates back to the 1880’s. Before then the bride wore a smaller chest bouquet attached to her dress. The fashion have changed over the years, but the bouquet has always been in fashion.

Naeem Khan did it

The aftershock of the New York Bridal Fashion Week is beginning to fade, and what remains is our astonishment of the creativity and out of the box thinking which was presented to us by designer Naeem Khan. This has caused us to name him he uncrowned king of the NY Bridal Fashion Week 2016! 

His Indian roots may be the reason why he questions the classic white wedding dress. He plays with colors, materials and shapes in his creations, and this year he did it spot on. 

Here are some of our favorite Naeem Khan creations showed on the runway this spring.  

Enjoy

The colored wedding gown is back

A wedding dress is white! WRONG...  

Last week New York City hosted the Bridal Fashion Week of 2016, and as everything else of this season, the new creations were over the top in details and extravagance - and in color 🤗

Seldom have we seen so many stunningly colored wedding gowns. Maybe this is a sign that the traditonal white gown has meet its monopolistic ending, aften nearly 150 years on the wedding throne. 

Maybe you are all into the idea of a colored wedding dress and maybe not, but we must admit that we love it! 😍

Below we have gather a small pot pourri of some of our favorite colored dresses of the NY Bridal Fashion Week 2016.  

Enjoy 💃🏼

14 modern bridal bouquets

In the ever changing world of bridal fashion the bouquet is the master of innovation and transformation. Its unlimited color choises gives it a head start in the running of being the most limit free and creative platform on the wedding scene. 

At the  beginning of this century bouquets were to be controlled, minimalistic and dense. Classic flowers were in favour, and mostly used were roses of all colors but mainly the white ones. I general the bouquet fashion subscribed white or pale coloured flowers neatly put together so nothing was hanging loose and everything was a compact romantic and classic unit.

Today the bouquet fashion has change enormously. We want vast bouquets, with all kinds of flowers and materials. The classic bouquet is out, and the innovative bouquet is in. The perfect bouquet is to be something that has never been seen before or worn by anyone else. Every bride wants to be unique, and they will go head over heels to be different, more creative and more innovative than her fellow brides. This may sound as a terrible competition, but we have been in need of change and courage, and for the industry this brings some freedom and a breath of fresh air.  

Today's bridal bouquet can be everything. It is the creativity, artistic fell and above all personality of it that gives meaning to the design. It is to tell a story about the bride holding it. 

Below we have gathered some unique and very different options on what a  modern and beautiful 2016 bouquet could look like.
