Big hair, petit body and a huge voice - We are bringing Diva back!

Imagine a filled 1920's jazz club... Mahagoni furniture with velvet cushions and brass details. Champagne towers are filled in the sparkling light of the women's jewellery and huge chandeliers. Couples are dancing everywhere and a smooth jazz rhythm controls the mood of the room, accompanied by an amazingly alluring vocal!  

Now this is vintage!  

Many couples dream about the perfect vintage wedding, and while the location can be quite easy to find and decorate, the music can be more difficult. Yes bands playing jazz, blues, soul ect. are easy to find, but the authentic diva-artist is a rare species! 

But we have found her. Gorgeous as few and with a voice like no one else, Joanita is the talk of the town!

Joanita was born in 1982 and has roots in Uganda and a Christian background. She specializes in Gospel and Soul, but her versitility is astounding. In person she is sweet and humble, but when she enters the stage, she tranforms into a pleasingly perfect vintage diva! 

She truly shines through and would make any vintage wedding a straight home run! 

So lean back and enjoy the pictures below. Also visit her website for a video of her performans, but bare in mind, that you will be blown away 😘 

Have a nice one 🙏🏻 

XoXo

Lollipops - The new Hour D'oeuvres

In February 2016 at the Gulfood fair in Dubai, an absolutely delicious new food trend was presented for the first time. At trend so new that it still is unnamed!! For the time being let's call it the lollipop hour d'oeuvres. Aesthetically pleasing with flavours that just spoiles your taste buds while being easy finger foods, this is truly the perfect all in one wedding reception option! 

At a first glance they look like small sweet popsicles. With the expectancy of a hard and cold surface and a sweet taste, I was truly over thrown when met whit an all smooth and melting texture. The cheese and salmon one I tried first was like nothing I have ever tasted.

While knowing exactly what salmon and cheese are supposed to taste and feel like, this experience cought me of guarde! Both tastes were recognizable but they seemed way more intense because of the new way they were represented - and I was sold. The foie gras to come just made me an addict! 

I had the privilege to taste five amazing and very different flavours, each unique in their on way. All  products are made with the best ingrediences, and with a huge respect to the art of cooking! Unfortunatly I can not provide a taste sample, but let me try and fulfill your longing by pictures and discriptions!

If you want a taste the only Danish provider I have found is  http://www.cantinamaria.dk. Frank will be delighted to help you. 

Enjoy your meal and your 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 😘

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 🙏🏻

How to pick the perfect ring

When choosing a ring to wear for the rest of your life, you must be absolutely certain that it is the right one. Especially when you are picking the ring for another, there are many things to consider.

First of all you need to be sure of the size of the ring. In the first link below there is a detailed guide to different ways of messuring one's ring size. But if it is an engagement ring, the best way is to bring one of your girlfriend's rings to the jeweller. 

Once you have found the ring size, you will face one of the biggest decisions of your life: How shoud the ring look? Do you want gold, silver, white gold or maybe a fourth option? Is the style of the ring to be modern, classic, art noveau or even antique? Is it to be minimalistic or maximalistic? And last but not least: Is it to have a stone and if so how big should it be and which stone?

This is where it gets tricky for the suitor. Choosing a wedding ring is a common task, but choosing an engagement ring is a lonely and nerve wracking decision. What if she does not like it? The answer is that she will probably say yes anyway.

But in the hope of helping lost suitors, we will share with you our thoughts on how to choose the perfect engagement ring.

For the suitor it would, as mentioned, in most cases be very effective to check out your girlfriend's other rings. Not only for the size but also to get a hinge of her style. Make sure that the engagement ring matches her other jewellery. Next you must consider if the ring should have a stone. Maybe a stone is a bad idea because it could be in the way while she is working, or maybe she has been showing you pictures of Kim Kardashian's rock everytime she has had the oppotunity.

If you decide to get a rock you have to choose the type of rock. All gemstones have different symbolic value and meaning. Follow the second link below to learn more about gemstones and what they symbolizes.

The most common choise is a diamond which is said to protect the person who wears it. But the diamond is propably the most common choise because it is beautiful, classic and a girl's best friend. A diamond is the safe bet, but also smarags, amatyst and rubies are common. 

It all may sound very confusing, and we truly whish that we could just lay out the one ring, that is perfect for all women, but such a ring does not exist. You must trust your instinct and the fact that you propably are the person who knows your girlfriend the best.

We can only present the many stages there is in choosing the perfect ring and thereby give you some tools for the process. Use everything you got: That being your instinct, memories of her loving the Kardashian ring or checking out her own style by snorting around in her jewellery box. 

Oddly this is an important decision, with no real consequence if chosen wrong. So choose away and remember to ask about the store's refund system - just in case 😜

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.
