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!!!

 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 💜💙❤️💛💚

In love with Valdemar Castle

Go to Denmark, go to Fyn, take the highway all the way south to were it ends, take a left once you have crossed the bridge that takes you from Fyn to the small island of Tåsinge, and then just follow the road until you are met by the magnificent Valdemar Castle. Encircled by both the see line, vast fields and deep woods this fairy tale castle is worthy of the name. The surroundings truly create a very special  feeling of being close to nature and still in the middle of the luxury lifestyle that is Valdemars Castle. 

As the surroundings differ so do the wedding dreams this venue can provide. As for the traditional princess wedding Valdemar Castle has room for both big and small parties, adjusting to the customer's every need. For the very big wedding parties and for those wishing for a more raw and authentic venue, the old stable building with room for 400 guest is ideal. Cement floors, exposed beams and stall windows take the guest back to basic, back to nature and let them enter the romantic atmosphere that is the south of Fyn. Last but not lest we have the pavillion located just on the beach. With room for only 50 person, this is for the small and intimate weddings. 

 

Versatility often equals a compromise with quality. Valdemar Castle is one of our favorite venues due to the fact that it can combine world class gastronomy, great service, gorgeous sourroundings, luxurious settings and huge ambitions with a flexibility and versatility that is seldom seen. 

We highly recommend Valdemar Castle to everybody! No matter the budget or type of wedding, Valdemar Castle can provide you with your dream wedding.

The Wedding Company wishes everyone a nice weekend 😘

It is time for cake

Denmark is well know for its exquisit food culture. Everything from good ingredients and innovative methods of cooking to the way the food is presented have a high priority on the danish gastronomic scene. This does not only go for michelin restaurant, but also for the ordinary danish consumer preparing dinner at home for the family. Therefore it gows without saying that the standards of cooking is pushed to the limit to meet  the high expectation and standards of the consumers.

This high standard is also reflected in danish wedding cakes. We got some of the worlds best bakers and confectioners, making sure that the taste is innovative and exquisit! 

But the taste of a wedding cake is not the only important thing, and maybe not even the most important thing. The appearence of the cake is essential. For many couples the cake  has to represent the wedding - is there a theme or maybe a distinction that is unique for the marrying couple. Therefore the looks of the cake is important. 

Below We have gathered some delicious wedding cakes - both some of traditionel and some of more modern looks. 

Enjoy 😋

Slør

Veils are still the most common headpiece of modern day brides, even though many brides have preferred flowers or maybe just a piece of jewellery as their hair accessorie.  The veils have been short and minimalistic without a lot of lace, and without it covering the face of the bride.

Minimalism in general is on its way out. The demand for more modest veils with a historical design touch is increasing.  Floor length veils with a lot of details and lace are high in demand. Covering the bride’s body and face gives her look an aspect of virginity and modesty that many brides pine for.

The antique bride of the late 19.century and the early 20.century is the main inspirational factor for bridal couture at the moment. This time also marks the beginning of the bridal fashion as we know it today. Until the middle of the 19.century white gowns and veils was not the normal equipment for a bride.  

Vails have been spotted throughout history on Greek goddesses and later nuns. Young women for the nobility wore veils as a sign of their virginity, but for the lower classes veils and headwear in general was a sing on a womens married position. Unmarried women had loose hair and no headwear.

When the bourgeoisie started using the veil as the bridal accessorie in the middle of the 19.century it was to show the modesty and virginity of the bride. Earlier the bride had worn a “bridal crown” made of flowers, with loose hair. 

The tradition of cutting up the veil symbolizes that the bride is no longer in title to wear a veil. Back in the days the veil was torn apart and exchanges by the heaswear of a married women. The unmarried women of the wedding are to receive good luck, if they get a piece of the veil to take home.

Still today many veils are suffering the destiny of being cut up by eager bridesmaids. Therefore many brides buys two veils, and changes to a cheap one just before the wedding dance.

We have gathered some of our favorite veils of the time. Many of them represent the more old fashion and antique look discussed above.

The world of "more is more" invitations

Whether one will admit it or not, the invitations we choose tell a lot about us and the wedding we want to have. Not only because it informs the addressee about the venue, the church, time and date and if chosen the dress code of the wedding. On an additional page it can be a good idea to present the toastmaster, the gift registerer and the wedding planner. If the wedding has a webpage it should be mentioned there as well, and so should information about nearby hotels and overnight stay opportunities.

The design of the invitation is more important than one should think. It tells a great deal about what the guests should be expecting of the wedding. The design can be fun, ironic, romantic, graphic, industrialistic, classic, historical or maybe a mix. Of course you must choose the invitation you like the most, but bare in mind the signal the invitation sends about the wedding and try to make the two work together. If you are sending out save the day cards, then make them the same design as the invitations to secure a common thread.

For the last couple of years, invitations has been very minimalistic and pure styled. We have not seen a lot of colors, flowers or blondes, but I think we are up for a change. We will of course still see a lot of minimalism, but people are becoming more courageous and want the romance back. The less is more movement is on a retreat both in flower arrangements, dresses and in invitations. Below I have gathered some "more is more" invitation design.

Enjoy the flowers and have a happy easter.

On choosing the perfect toastmaster

As the name indicates the toastmaster is "the master of the toast", but he or she is so much more than that. Therefore the choise of the toastmaster is not to be taken easily.  

It is an honor to be chosen toastmaster, and a quality toastmaster will see it as such. But it is also a job.

Depending on the wedding, the toastmaster already starts his or hers job in the church making sure that everybody is well seated. Hence forth he leads the party all the way to the wedding dance. 

Mostly the toastmaster is only active during the dinner, presenting speakers, being in contact with the kitchen and keeping track of the deadline. This sounds quite simple, but a wedding is not a train station. Everything must be delivered with charm and humour. The good toastmaster is jolly, has an easy approach and is comfortable and maybe used to speaking at large assemblies. It is the toastmaster's job to make sure the party is active and fun. Nobody is to be bored. The toastmaster must lighten the mood, tell jokes, toast and maybe sing a song if necessary. But seldom this is the case! The perfect person for the job is not a stand up comedian and not a logistic trainee, but something in between. The keyword is smooth. 

When it comes down to it, today's toastmaster's job is to make the wedding day go smoothly. He is to make sure that the bride and groom can relax and enjoy their day. Therefore it is a good idea to establish a contract between your wedding planner and the toastmaster at an early stage. 

And for the toastmaster here are som tips:  

  1. Do not get to drunk.  
  2. Stick to your schedule, and only add newcomers if you are absolutely sure you have the time. It is okay to say no to last minute speakers.
  3. Due to the problem mentioned above it is a good idea to name the toastmaster in the invitation. 
  4. Remember that there is a speach hierarchy. Close family is more entitled than periphere friends. There is only a small amount of time, so it can be necessary to say no to someone. You must decide who are close and who are not that close. 
  5. Make sure you are certain about the names and relations of the speakers.  
  6. There is a speach line tradition.  Ask the bride and groom if it is to be honoured. 
  7. In fact make sure that you and the bride and groom agree on what type of wedding they want. Formal or informal?
  8. Remember that you are to give the last speach.  
  9. And last but not least - By all means make sure that the wedding dance is held before midnight. Otherwise it means bad luck, and it would be your fault!

To dresscode or not to dresscode

Bryllupssæsonen nærmer sig, og hvis ikke allerede invitationerne er sendt ud, er I måske ved at overveje dem. 

Såfremt der er en dresscode for jeres bryllup, vil invitationen være stedet at nævne den.

Det er væsentligt at overveje dresscode, for selvom man ikke altid tænker over det, har ens tøj og tidspunktet, man bærer det, en stor betydning for ens sociale udstråling. Noget af det første, vi ser på, når vi ønsker at forstå og fastlægge en social situation, er, hvad for noget tøj der bæres. Er vi i et træningscenter, er vi til møde, ser vi film på sofaen eller er vi fx til bryllup? Derfor er det tøj, som såvel brudeparret som gæsterne vælger at bære, også med til at sætte dagsordnen for festlighederne. 

Der er utallige holdninger til brugen af dresscode. Mange ser det som et unødvendigt og måske ligefrem uopdragent krav fra værterne - "Det er vel mig og ikke mit tøj, de vil se?!".  

Jeg melder mig modsat ind i gruppen af folk, som ser dresscode som et hjælpemiddel til gæsterne snarere end et krav. Jeg ser det ofte som et direkte problem, hvis jeg bliver inviteret til bryllupper uden en gennemskuelig dresscode. Dette skyldes mit behov for at være korrekt klædt. Man kan risikere ikke at være fint nok klædt på og derfor skille sig unødigt ud. Endnu værre er det dog, hvis man er finere klædt på end brudeparret og brudeparrets nærmeste familie. For det meste ringer jeg derfor og spørger yderligere ind til, hvad der forventes. For mit vedkomne handler det ganske enkelte om ikke at sætte andre eller mig selv i forlegenhed ved ikke at være passende klædt. Det er ikke mig, der skal have opmærksomheden, men bruden. 

Men alt har en gylden middelvej, som bør følges. 

Det første, man som brudepar bør overveje, er, hvilken type bryllup man ønsker. Nogle ønsker, at festen skal være meget uformel, mens andre gerne vil have højtideligheden og traditionerne med.

Også tidspunktet på dagen bør overvejes. Såfremt man gerne ser smokinger til brylluppet, skal man sikre sig, at der er tid til at klæde om, da smokingen hverken må bæres i kirken eller før klokken 17. Sådanne regler er der mange af, og der kan læses mere i linket nederst. 

Som det næste bør man se på, hvilke gæster man inviterer. Man skal overveje, om gæsterne har tøj til at følge en pågældende dresscode, eller om de skal ud og investere i det. Såfremt det sidste er tilfældet, skal man overveje, om det vil være en for stor økonomisk last at pålægge pågældende gæst. Det skal være en fornøjelse at komme til bryllup og ikke en økonomisk byrde, og ved siden af polterabend og gave kan det hurtigt blive dyrt, hvis der skal købes en smoking også. Heldigvis skal man her huske, at udstyret kan lejes for forholdsvis små penge. 

Hvis man beslutter sig for at tilføje en dresscode, så overvej, hvorledes I serverer budskabet. Man bør endnu engang kende sit publikum og så overveje, hvor "hård" eller "blød" man bør være. Hvis man fx skriver: "dresscode: festligt tøj", så bliver det pludselig en definitionssag for gæsten. For nogle er skjorte og jeans med en jakke ud over festtøj, mens andre trækker i gallakjolen. På den måde kan men ende med at få en meget broget fest. Dette kan måske være det, man ønsker, men mange føler sig faktisk bedst tilpas, hvis de føler, de er klædt på i stil med de andre gæster. Nogle har måske sågar fravalgt gallakjolen, da de var nervøse for at være overdressed. 

Modsat kan det man også risikere, at gæster ligefrem melder fra til et arrangement, hvor grænserne er trukket for stærkt op. Hvis der fx bare stod: "dresscode: Smoking", så kunne nogle føle sig trængt op i en krog, og måske ville disse personer slet ikke føle sig tilpasse og festlige i sådan et antræk. 

Men hvordan rammer man så de korrekte vendinger?  

Hvis vi endnu engang kredser om smokingen. Ved at skrive: "dresscode: smoking tilladt" eller "dresscode: Vi ser gerne smoking", så giver man en indikator til såvel mændene som kvinderne i selskabet om, hvilket niveau af højtidelighed I ønsker festen er på. Dette gør I dog uden samtidig at forlange noget af gæsten. Gæsten får den valgmulighed, at det er tilladt at komme i smoking, men at jakkesæt dermed også er helt okay. En sådan formulering sætter nogle gode grænser for påklædning uden at virke for krævende. 

Som en sidste ting skal det nævnes, at dresscode altid bliver sat ud fra mandens påklædning. Man nævner altså normaltvis ikke kvinden under dresscode, da mandens påklædning indirekte ansporer kvindens. 

Selvom mange vælger ikke at skrive dresscode på, så husk, at selv ingen dresscode er en dresscode. Men kan jo altid skrive: "dresscode: Det du føler dig bedst tilpas i." 

I nedenstående link finder I regler og overvejelser for valg af dresscode. Men uanset hvad så husk, at de væsentligste regler er de regler, I selv laver for jeres bryllup 🙏🏻

Glorup Manor

In my search for the most exclusive and beautiful wedding venues I stumbled across Glorup Manor and most of all its breathtaking park. Located in the south of Fyn it is surrounded by some of the most untainted and authentic nature. 

When one walks the park, one is met by an indescribable feeling of silence and history. The composition of the park is unspoiled, raw and utterly romantic. Old temples, statues and ruins meet you through the maze of tracks. Following a wooden path over a small stream, you find yourself deep into the woods. The feeling of being lost consumes you momentarily, just to be replaced by the surprise when you are suddenly met by a vast amount of open fields, small lakes and in the end the magnificent main building of Glorup Manor.  

The versitility of this romantic garden is seldom seen. But the atmosphere is truly unique! Everything is so quiet and you walk around, as if you were all alone in this world. Glorup park is one of those diamonds in the rough - unspoiled, with a world of potential.
