Find den bedste gave til guldbrylluppet

Guldbrylluppet er en hyldest til kærligheden. 50 år i ægteskab er ikke noget, som alle par får lov til at opleve, hvorfor de par som klarer det fortjener at blive fejret i stor stil. Det kan være, at dine bedsteforældre – eller forældre – snart runder de 50 år sammen i ægteskabets tegn. Derfor skal du naturligvis finde en fantastisk guldbryllupsgave. Men hvor finder du den? Du kan blandt andet søge inspiration på nettet. Det er eksempelvis muligt at finde den perfekte guldbryllupsgave hos Find-gaven.dk. I denne artikel får du dog ligeledes nogle idéer til, hvad du kan overraske guldbrudeparret med.

Tid og oplevelser er en af de bedste gaver

I den travle hverdag kan det af og til være udfordrende at finde tid til hinanden, hvorfor tid bliver noget af det mest dyrebare, vi har.

Hvis dine bedsteforældre – eller forældre – har guldbryllup, er de sandsynligvis ved at være oppe i alderen. Af samme grund vil de elske at bruge tid med dig. Her kommer oplevelsesgaven ind i billedet. Tag guldbrudeparret med ud på en oplevelse, hvor I kan skabe nye og gode minder. Det kan være en tur i Tivoli, en kanotur, lerdueskydning eller en forlænget weekend på et badehotel. Du bestemmer.

Én ting er sikkert. Oplevelser er guld værd.

Følg ønskelisten

Når du skal finde den bedste guldbryllupsgave, kan det nogle gange være en sikker løsning at følge ønskelisten – hvis der vel og mærket følger sådan en med invitationen.

Hvis du følger guldbrudeparrets ønskeliste, kan du vide dig sikker på, at du ikke går helt galt i byen med din gave. Du risikerer dog, at flere gæster køber den præcis samme gave som dig. I forlængelse heraf skal du have in mente, at en gave fra ønskelisten ofte kan være lidt mere upersonlig. Det gør dog ikke gaven dårlig. Du kan sagtens finde den bedste guldbryllupsgave ved at kigge på ønskelisten.

Giv en gave fyldt med minder

Når et par har været gift i 50 år, har de oplevet mange ting, som de måske ikke længere husker så godt. Derfor kan du med fordel lave en personlig gave til guldbrudeparret, hvor du vækker nogle gamle minder.

Du kan eksempelvis designe et fotoalbum, hvor guldbrudeparret får lov til at se tilbage på, hvordan det hele startede med dem. Derefter kan albummet vise, hvordan jeres familie har udvidet sig gennem tiden. Det er en personlig gave – og det er ofte en af de bedste af slagsen.

Disse ting er vigtige at få styr på inden brylluppet

Når du først er faldet på knæ, eller er blevet friet til, begynder den store planlægningsproces frem mod den store dag. Datoen er måske blevet sat, og det er nu, at du og din partner for alvor skal til at have styr på alle de praktiske gøremål, inden at I endelig kan sige “ja” til hinanden og fejre jeres kærlighed. Herunder får du et overblik over nogle vigtige ting, som du og din kommende ægtefælle bør få styr på inden brylluppet – og uden at gå på kompromis med jeres drømme.

Skab et overblik over de økonomiske anliggender

Et bryllup løber ofte op i mange tusinde kroner. Dit eget bryllup er dog også en begivenhed, som du forhåbentligt kun skal opleve én gang i dit liv. Derfor skal du naturligvis heller ikke gå på kompromis med dine drømme. Der er mange udgifter til et bryllup – specielt hvis I er et par, der ønsker at fejre den store dag med en masse mennesker, som I holder af. Det kan for eksempel være maden, drikkevarerne og måske skal I endda også dække udgifterne på en hotelovernatning – hvis nogle af jeres gæster eksempelvis kommer langvejs fra. 

I har måske en opsparing, hvor alle pengene til brylluppet står klar. Er det ikke tilfældet, kan I overveje, om I skal tage et lån til at dække nogle af udgifterne. Det kan eksempelvis være et kreditlån, som du nemt og hurtigt kan tage online.

Det handler blot om, at I ikke går på kompromis med jeres drømmebryllup på grund af et par tusinde kroner.

Find den rigtige fotograf

Jeres bryllup skal naturligvis ikke løbe op i en million – og det er jo heller ikke fordi, at I skal gå ud og låne penge, der sætter jer i gæld de næste mange år. Der er mange ting, som du kan gøre billigt til et bryllup, uden at du går på kompromis med dine inderste bryllupsdrømme. Der er dog én ting, som du ikke bør spare dine penge på. Det er bryllupsfotografen. Du bliver forhåbentligt kun gift én gang i dit liv, hvorfor du naturligvis skal have nogle ordentlige billeder, der kan forevige den store dag.

Derfor anbefales det, at du og din partner sætter jer ned og finder den perfekte bryllupsfotograf, der tager nogle billeder, som falder i jeres smag.

Der er masser af skønne steder i København til bryllup

Få styr på gæstelisten og ønskelisten

Det er også ret tidligt i processen, at I bør få styr på gæstelisten og ønskelisten. Specielt gæstelisten. Ønsker kan jo altid tilføjes undervejs. Gæsterne skal I derimod have inviteret i god tid, således at de kan sætte dagen af til at fejre jer. Når I har styr på gæsterne, bliver det ligeledes lettere at få styr på menuen – eksempelvis antallet af kuverter.

Ønskelisten er også en god ting at få styr på hurtigt. I forlængelse heraf kan det være en god idé at finde en gavekoordinator – eksempelvis et familiemedlem – som kan holde styr på, hvad I får af de forskellige gæster. På den måde slipper I for at modtage otte identiske lysestager.

Få styr på alt det praktiske til dit bryllup

Dette indhold er sponsoreret

Endelig er det den store dag, og efter en smuk vielse i kirken, går turen til den lokation hvor den efterfølgende fest skal foregå. Her skal receptionen holdes og efterfølgende står den på middag, dans og fest. Et bryllup er en stor begivenhed og kræver meget planlægning. Der er mange detaljer at holde styr på, og selvom det kan være dejligt selv at være med ind over de forskellige ting, kan det være en god idé at få hjælp til noget af det praktiske. Læs videre og få nogle gode tips til, hvordan du får styr på, og hjælp til, alt det praktiske i forbindelse med dit bryllup

Servering 

I forbindelse med fejringen af et bryllup indgår der som regel en reception hvor bryllupskagen serveres sammen med champagne eller andre drikkevarer. Derudover hører oftest en middag, enten bestilt udefra eller hjemmelavet som buffet. Om det er det ene eller det andet, kan det være en rigtig god idé at få hjælp til serveringen af maden. Er maden bestilt udefra og leveret så den er nogenlunde klar, er det en oplagt at få nogen til at ordne de sidste ting inden servering samt til at servere retterne for gæsterne. Er menuen en buffet er det smart at have nogen til at sørge for at der ikke står tomme fade, og at buffeten ser nogenlunde ren og fin ud gennem hele middagen. På den måde kan du få lov til blot at fokusere på at være dagens midtpunkt, og nyde den dejlige dag, og skønne middag, uden at skulle tænke nærmere over praktikken.

Oprydning

Lige så vel som det er oplagt at have folk til at servere middagen, er det en god idé at få nogen til at rydde op efter den igen. Det er måske til at klare selv at stille champagneglas og kagetallerkener frem til receptionen, men det kan blive træls selv at skulle bruge tid og kræfter på at rydde op efterfølgende. Brug i stedet for tiden med dine gæster, og klik ind på https://handyhand.dk/hh/servering-eller-anden-hjaelp-til-fest for at finde hjælp til oprydning til din fest. På den måde går oprydningen nemt og smertefrit for dig, og du kan i stedet fokusere på at nyde den store dag, med din partner og dine gæster. Ideelt set kan du finde hjælp, som både kan assistere med servering og oprydning i samme omgang, så du ikke skal tænke på at holde styr på for mange. 

Musik 

Enhver bryllupsfest kræver en god playliste og sæt gode højtalere til at sætte festen i gang. Måske har du selv det rette udstyr derhjemme, eller kender nogen du kan låne det af. Hvis dette ikke er tilfældet, eller du bare ikke har lyst til at stå med ansvaret for musikken selv, kan du altid hyre nogen til at gøre det for dig. Der findes et hav af DJ’s som du kan hyre til privatfester. På den måde kan du slappe helt af, feste løs, og være sikker på, at musikken kører som den skal. Så er du også helt sikker på, at der ikke ender med at stå en masse fra festen, som prøver at få deres yndlingssang i kø. Du kan selvfølgelig altid selv sende ønsker afsted til din playliste, så den hyrede DJ kan sørge for, at du får lige den fest du ønsker dig.

Smukke og utraditionelle billeder fra bryllupper

Bartender 

Middagen er slut, brudevalsen er klaret, og nu begynder festen for alvor. Som oftest betyder det også, at der ryger lidt drinks og andet alkohol ned. En af mulighederne her er at vælge at købe lidt forskelligt alkohol og ting til at blande op med på forhånd, og så lave et tag selv bord, hvor gæsterne selv hælder deres alkohol op og blander drinks. Alternativt kan du hyre en bartender, eller måske lave en aftale med den lokation hvor du holder brylluppet. Så kan du udvælge en række drinks og få mixet og serveret dem præcis som du ønsker. En god idé kan være at få lavet en drink som du og din partner selv har sammensat, og som kan blive en særlig drink til brylluppet. 

Rengøring

Festen er nået til vejs ende, og du vakler lidt halvsnaldret derfra med din nye partner for livet. Men tanken om at skulle tilbage og klare rengøringen i morgen, lokker ikke ligefrem. I stedet for selv at stå for den trælse slutrengøring, er det oplagt at få nogen til at hjælpe med den del også. Giv dig selv lov til udelukkende at fokusere på alle de sjove aspekter af brylluppet, og lad andre klare rengøringen. Igen er det oplagt eventuelt at kombinere servering, oprydning og rengøring hvis muligt. Ellers er det helt sikkert muligt, blot at skaffe nogen, som kan hjælpe med den efterfølgende rengøring.

Billederne til jeres bryllup

Har du haft succes med at finde en kæreste? Og har det resulteret i et frieri, et kæmpe stort ja og et forestående bryllup, så læs med her. For her kommer vi nemlig med en række tips og tricks, når du skal forevige kærligheden med billeder fra brylluppet og ikke mindst fra festen.

Der er stort ser ikke nogen billeder, der er så vigtige, som billederne fra ens bryllup. Selvom billeder af ens børn også altid vil være helt specielle, så var det jo aldrig kommet dertil uden den ultimative kærlighed til hinanden. Derfor bør I helt sikkert investere i enten en professionel bryllupsfotograf eller en ven eller bekendt, der står for tage billederne til jeres bryllup.

Billederne der siger mere end 1000 ord

Langt de fleste vælger at få taget mange forskellige slags billeder, når de skal giftes. Det er, for de fleste vedkommende, den dyreste og største fest i deres liv, og derfor skal der ikke spares på noget. Derfor investerer mange også i at få en professionel fotograf til at følge bruden og brudeparret og gæsterne helt fra start til slut.

De mange forskellige billeder, både de lidt mere opstillede billeder ude foran kirken, i en skov eller lignende – altså de lidt mere formelle billeder, hører til et bryllup og det er med garanti billeder, som man bliver glad for også mange år efter.

Kontrasten mellem uformelle og formelle billeder er vigtig

De mere uformelle billeder, hvor fotografen fanger virkelige øjeblikke af jer og af gæsterne er også fuldstændig uvurderlige. Kontrasten til de mere formelle billeder er stor, men begge typer har hver sin berettigelse. En god blanding giver nemlig en god balance, og man kan dermed også få lov til at opleve festen fra sine gæsters øjne. 

Det er umuligt at være alle steder på en gang, og til et bryllup, hvor der er mange gæster, så er det umuligt at interagere og feste med dem alle sammen på en gang. Derfor kan det også være dejligt at se, hvordan gæsterne, fra deres synspunkt oplevede festen. 

Fang de unikke reaktioner

Det er muligt gennem de mere uformelle billeder, hvor grin, tåre og andet bliver fanget. Det er også typisk øjebliksbilleder af gæsterne og af jer, som brudepar, der er dejlige at have. Under taler, sange eller andre aktiviteter kan man også fange helt unikke reaktioner.

Generelt så er de uforbeholdne øjeblikke bare rigtig dejlige at have. De ægte billeder af ægte følelser er guld værd og hvis I selv skal tage billederne, så er det ikke muligt at få fanget af de gode billeder. Det samme gør sig lidt gældende, hvis I bruger en af gæsterne som fotograf.

Slap af og stol på at billederne bliver fantastiske

Med en fotograf så kan du slappe af, da du ved, at der er en med erfaring og de rette kompetencer, der står for alt omkring billeder og lignende. Han eller hun ved også alt om hvi9lke positioner, der er gode at bruge og stå i, når man skal have taget de mere formelle billeder.

Det kan også være at I gerne vil forevige jeres gæster, familie og venner. Det kan gøres på mange forskellige måder og trænger I til inspiration, så kan I naturligvis søge den på nettet og dermed videreformidle jeres ideer til fotografen. Fotografen har som oftest også gjort det mange gange før og kan bidrage med gode ideer og vejledning.

Fra dating til bryllup

Vejen til brylluppet har for nogen være lang og andre kortere. Hvis I har fundet hinanden på nettet via online dating, så er I nok begge meget bevidste om at billeder og især det rette profilbillede har en kæmpestor betydning. Det er førstehåndsindtrykket og det, der fanger opmærksomheden.

Bryllupsbilleder er jo ikke på samme måde nogen, der skal fange opmærksomhed på den måde. Med derfor må de gerne være spændende og interessante. Det bliver de også, hvis der lægges noget arbejde og energi i dem. Endnu bedre bliver de, hvis det ikke er jeres egen energi, men i stedet en fotografs. 

Gå ikke glip af festen

I mange tilfælde behøver man ikke en fotograf. Men bryllupper er helt klart et af de begivenheder, hvor det er en rigtig god idé at bruge en fotograf. Hvis I vælger selv at stå for billederne, så risikerer I, at I enten fokuserer for meget på at tage billeder dermed går glip af festen.

Eller I risikerer, at I glemmer at tage bryllupsbilleder og dermed går glip af at forevige billederne fra jeres livs bryllup. Dog kan det være en sjov idé at samle alle venner og familiemedlemmers billeder i en samlede mappe. Dermed kan alle få adgang til billederne og I kan også se alle de sjove og lidt mere ”skæve” billeder, som gæsterne har taget af dem selv og hinanden. 

Bridal Bouquets – How to Make Your Own

If you are on a tight budget for your wedding, or if you just like working with flowers, you might try making your own bridal bouquet.  You may run into some problems that can be avoided by paying attention to our checklist for making a bridal bouquet.

Glorious, sweetly scented Roses

Plan before starting

If you just jump in to making your bouquet without planning what style, colors, and flowers you want, you may not like the finished product. It would be best to have chosen your wedding colors before you begin the bouquet. Take a swatch or color chart with you to the florist to be sure you are ordering the correct colors.

Roses

Choose the flowers

A traditional bridal bouquet has an odd number of flowers, usually seven or nine, but you may want more or less, depending on your wedding budget. Roses are a popular choice for the bouquet. If you do choose roses, make sure you order long stems, so you have enough to work with. Keep in mind that flowers with soft stems, like daisies, may droop if made too much before the ceremony.

You do not have to use the same flowers in your bridal bouquet as you have chosen to decorate the wedding location or reception hall. You will want, however, to make sure they don’t clash too much.

Choose the flowers

Choosing the greens

Unless you are choosing to go with a flower only bouquet, you will need to carefully consider which greens you place in your bouquet. The foliage that surrounds and supports your chosen flowers can make or break your bouquet. Using a mixture of foliage generally goes nicely with all flowers. However, like flowers, you need to keep in mind that some foliage will wilt or turn brown if cut too early. As you gather your material together, keep in mind that your bouquet is often seen from all angles, including underneath. Keep everything trimmed neatly.

Choose the flowers

Gather your supplies

You will also need some other basic supplies, such as scissors, a knife (to cut the stems), floral tape, and ribbon in a color that compliments both the color of your flowers and the overall color palette of your wedding. Fortunately, all of these supplies are easily found at your local craft store.

Schedule Time

Depending on your talent and experience, it may take a bit of time to make your bridal bouquet just the way you want it. You may want to practice once or twice ahead of time just to make sure you know how to make it.

You will also want to make sure to set aside some time in your wedding planner or your wedding checklist the evening before you wedding to make your bouquet. Leave the flowers and greens in water if you make the bouquet the night before, but make sure that the ribbons do  not get wet. If the weather is very hot, you will want to put the flower, still in water, into a refrigerator to keep the flowers fresh.

Instructions

  1. Lay out your supplies. You don’t want to be searching for your scissors while your flowers are already in hand.
  2. Prepare your flowers. Strip leaves from the stem and remove wilted or browned petals and flowers.
  3. Prepare the foliage in the same manner.
  4. Holding the foliage in one hand, arrange them so they form a rounded head.
  5. Next, place flowers among the foliage. Arrange the flowers and the foliage so that all are evenly spaced.
  6. Add flowers to the outer edges of the bouquet. Your bouquet should fan out in your hand naturally.
  7. Once you have the shape and design you like, wrap floral tape around the stems tightly, just above your hand.
  8. Wrap the floral tape around the stems at least three times.
  9. Tie ribbons around the stems, being sure to cover the floral tape.
  10. Cut all the stems about six inches below the lowest edge of the ribbons.

Choosing Wedding Songs

Choosing the right music for your wedding can be daunting. Many people feel they have to choose traditional wedding songs for their ceremony and first dances. However, more and more frequently people are choosing popular songs that mean something special to them, rather than traditional wedding songs.

Choosing a wedding song that holds a special meaning

Choosing a wedding song that holds a special meaning

Choosing a wedding song that holds a special meaning to you and your fiance will make your ceremony and first dance just that much more special. Whenever you hear that particular song, you will be reminded of your ceremony or first dance.

There are at least three points in your ceremony and reception

There are at least three points in your ceremony and reception that you will want to choose a song for: your entrance into the ceremony; your exit from the ceremony; and your first dance at the reception. You might also want to choose a song for a father-daughter dance and maybe a couple other special dances during the reception.

There are at least three points in your ceremony and reception

Most couples choose a contemporary, popular song for their first dance

Most couples choose a contemporary, popular song for their first dance. This song might be the same one you first danced to, or might have some other special meaning. Keep in mind that you first dance doesn’t have to be to a slow song; as long as your chosen song is danceable, it will work.

You will probably want to sit down with the DJ or band well in advance of the ceremony and reception to go over what songs you want included. Be sure to also let them know if there are any particular songs you do not want played. There’s nothing worse that bringing up bad feelings by hearing your ex’s favorite song!

The most important thing to remember when choosing your wedding music

The most important thing to remember when choosing your wedding music is that the choice is yours and your fiance’s – not anyone else’s. If the songs have meaning to you, include them. However, you may want to consider the lyrics before making your final choice. Walking down the isle to a depressing song about loosing everything isn’t really a great message to send (unless it’s done as a joke and people realize this). Playing songs with NC-17 rated lyrics at a reception filled with young children is not going to make you a popular bride. The music itself might be beautiful, but after reviewing the lyrics, you may decide that it simply isn’t the right song for your wedding.

The most important thing to remember when choosing your wedding music

If you have hired a band to play, make sure you think about what instruments they will be using – you may not want a lot of electric guitar and drums, or you may not want a harp. Be prepared to listen to various bands and other music before you finalize your wedding song play-list.

Wedding Themes

Your wedding should be one of the most memorable days of your life. You will still remember a cookie cutter wedding, but personalizing the details of your wedding according to your personality (and your soon-to-be spouse’s) will turn that boring wedding into an event you’ll remember forever!

Now more than ever, couples can spice up their wedding in ways that make their day unique to them alone, and unlike days gone by, no one will bat an eye. Traditional wedding protocol is still popular, but that doesn’t mean you need to follow it to the letter.

Before you start calling reception halls and caterers, sit down with your partner and discuss what the two of you want for your wedding. Write down your ideas for the perfect wedding. Keep these ideas in your wedding organizer for reference later.

Wedding Themes

Theme weddings are very popular

Theme weddings are very popular. These can be very subdued events, or crazy and outrageous. Remember, this is your wedding, your special day. Don’t be inhibited by what you think others will think. As long as you and your partner are having fun, then your theme wedding is a success!

Theme weddings are very popular

If you want to have a theme wedding that is fairly elaborate

If you want to have a theme wedding that is fairly elaborate, then be sure to allow yourself plenty of time for planning. It may take some time to find the right place to hold a pirate themed wedding, or a caterer that can make an elegant castle cake to go with your fairytale theme. Remember to give your guests plenty of time to find costumes, if you choose to extend the theme to them as well.

You may think a wedding planner is a useless expense

You may think a wedding planner is a useless expense

You may think a wedding planner is a useless expense. However, having someone else to take care of all the minute details of a theme wedding (or any wedding for that matter) might be just the thing you need to take the stress off your shoulders. A planner that specializes in theme weddings will know shortcuts and vendors that will make your wedding a fantastic success.

You may think a wedding planner is a useless expense

Be sure to interview several wedding planners before making the final decision

Be sure to interview several wedding planners before making the final decision to hire one or not. Prices for their services will vary depending on how elaborate and large you want your wedding to be, and how involved you want the planner to be. When balancing the cost of a wedding planner against your budget, keep in mind that using a wedding planner will allow you to continue your busy daily schedule knowing that every detail of your wedding is being handled. That alone could make a good wedding planner well worth their price.

Winter wedding ideas in Denmark

Choosing the winter to tie the knot can be one of the biggest decision you make for your winter wedding planning. There is a growing trend of brides choosing autumn or winter weddings instead of summer weddings. Winter weddings in Denmark, can be very beautiful and intimate, and certainly will stand out from the many summer weddings that are held each year.

While there are some disadvantages to having a winter wedding

While there are some disadvantages to having a winter wedding, there are some significant advantages. If you want a wedding that will be beautiful and truly unique, there are lots of different winter themes for weddings that are unique and can only be held in the winter months that will make your wedding very personal and very special.

Women who like to do things differently may really like the different themes and style choices available for winter weddings that aren’t  available for spring or summer weddings.

When deciding whether or not a winter wedding is the right choice for you, talk over the advantages and disadvantages of having a winter wedding with your fiancé before deciding if this is right for you.

The Advantages of a Winter Wedding in Denmark

When thinking about whether or not to have a winter wedding, here are some of the many advantages to consider:

  • You can save a lot of money.  By holding it in the winter you can save up to half the cost of a traditional summer wedding and get more for your money since winter is considered as “off wedding season”. 
  • You can get exactly what you want.  It’s more likely that you will be able to get the hall, restaurant, church, or other location of your choice. But since not that many people get married in the winter, the same popular locations are usually available during the winter, sometimes at a reduced cost. 
  • More of your loved ones may be able to attend. By holding your wedding in the winter it’s more likely that family and friends will have fewer social commitments and thus will be free to attend your wedding. 
  • Winter weddings are different. Do you want your wedding to stand out and be memorable, a winter wedding can be a great way to do something new and different for your wedding. 
Advantages of a Winter Wedding

The Disadvantages of a Winter Wedding

While there are a lot of great reasons to have a winter wedding, there are, of course, some downsides to having a winter wedding that should be considered before definitely choosing to have winter wedding. There are ways to overcome these issues, but it’s up to you to decide if a winter wedding is right for her.

  • The weather might not be what you expect. Obviously, in northern climates you’d expect it to be cold and snowy. Bad weather could mean that family and friends wouldn’t be able to make it to the ceremony. The weather might not be terrible – it usually isn’t; but it might be too mild, which can also ruin wedding plans. If you are envisioning a beautiful snowy landscape for your wedding, or arriving in a horse drawn sleigh, and there is no snow then your wedding plans could fall flat fast. 
  • A winter wedding might cause holiday complications. While you might love the idea of a Christmas theme wedding full of red and green and gold and traditional Christmas elements, your family and friends might not want to spend Christmas Eve or Christmas Day at a wedding. Also, holidays are a prime travel time and it might be expensive and time consuming for friends and relatives who need to travel to make it to the wedding. 

These disadvantages can be easily overcome with proper planning and some creativity. With some handy winter wedding tips from this site, there is no stopping you from having a successful and romantic winter wedding of your dreams.

Wedding Dresses in Vejle and Kolding – Attire Tips

One of the biggest decisions you will face as the big day approaches is choosing the perfect wedding dress and wedding attire. The process of shopping for a wedding dress can be a fabulous adventure, but it can also be stressful and overwhelming–particularly because a bride-to-be often starts shopping for her gown before many other details are determined. You might have had a clear mental picture of the perfect wedding dress ever since you were five years old.

Wedding Dresses in Vejle and Kolding – Attire Tips

Take a few minutes to think about what you want

Take a few minutes to think about what you want. It will be helpful when you enter the maze of wedding dresses out there to know what your budget is, any details that are essential (i.e. I must have a full skirt, or my arms must be covered), and an idea of how traditional you want your dress to be. After all, if really a teal pantsuit would work best for you, it’s probably not worth your time to sort through racks of flouncy white gowns.

Give yourself ample time to plan- generally the rule of thumb is that you need to order your gown at least six months before your wedding. So you should ideally start shopping for your gown nine months or more before your wedding. (If you don’t have this much time, its okay, just budget for some rush charges).

On your wedding day, you’ll want to look great

On your wedding day, you’ll want to look great, but you’ll also want to be comfortable- it will be hard to pose for all those pictures, dance, laugh and more if you’re tugging your dress up or have boning jutting into your ribs. First- consider which wedding dress is most appropriate to your day – for example- consider a shorter tea-length or cocktail length dress for a beach wedding. If you’re the kinda gal who likes to dance with her hands in the air, and anticipates doing the limbo, perhaps a strapless dress is not the one for you. Look for wedding dresses with removable sleeves or straps to give you the widest range of options.

On your wedding day, you’ll want to look great

Think about your body type and what kinds of dresses generally look good on you. Take a look at what you regularly wear that makes you feel confident and beautiful, and then look for a wedding dress with similar lines.

If a friend is making your wedding dress

If a friend is making your wedding dress, ensure that you have agreed on a fitting schedule and chances to make adjustments. If you’re looking for a bargain at a sample sale, or discount outlet, you should budget money for taking the dress to a good tailor. Many designers will ask for three fittings, and will closely tailor your wedding dress to fit you.

If money is an issue

If money is an issue, remember that the most expensive kind of dress is not necessarily the best kind. Many brides find a bridesmaids dress in white or off-white that works perfectly, and is hundreds of dollars cheaper. There are thousands of dresses to be had at sample sales, thrift stores, and ebay. Consider taking pictures from magazines to a friend who sews or seamstress and getting a price quote.

If you choose to make your own dress, don’t delay. The sooner you finish it, the sooner you’ll be able to attend to the many other details of your wedding.

Don’t forget this is your wedding day. Wear whatever makes you comfortable and feels like you. And have fun shopping for your dress. It should be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

Top 6 Tips for Finding Your Perfect Wedding Dress in Aarhus and Copenhagen

Selecting the right wedding dress is one of the most important decisions you will make in planning your wedding. It can be more than a little daunting, as you know all eyes are going to be on you – and your dress – on the big day and you want to make sure that you are looking your best. It’s enough to drive some brides to despair. But with a little pre-planning it’s easy to get organized and on the right track to finding “the one”. Here are 6 top tips to help you find the perfect wedding dress for you:

Your Perfect Wedding Dress

Look for what you like

1. Look for what you like – Some of us girls even have pictures of dresses saved from before we got our proposal! Looking in wedding magazines is always the useful first step to getting an idea of what you want – it’s fun too. Also use the internet as a resource. Keep these clippings and bookmark sites in your web browser. Top Tip: Use Google’s Image Search function to quickly browse through pictures of dresses (go to the Google homepage and click on the text that says ‘Images’ in the top left hand corner. Then search as normal for ‘wedding dresses’ – the results will be images instead of text).

2. Look early – This means looking at around 9 months ahead if possible. Say you have a proposal, set a date – ideally you can start looking then. If you are ordering a custom dress then this can take months to make and if you need alterations – as the majority of women do – this will also take time. A good seamstress is often booked up far in advance, so getting in early is essential.

Set a budget for the dress

3. Set a budget – Why does there have to be a budget?! Well, it’s way too easy to go overboard with the dress – but it is unfair to spend a huge proportion of the budget on a dress if it means your guests have to eat bread rolls all night! It’s important to strike a balance and setting a budget in advance can help you focus. And remember you can find stunning gowns for a few hundred pounds if you know where to look (check out our site below for more on this). Also remember alterations could cost a few hundred pounds, although some boutiques will do the alterations in store for you, if you negotiate with them.

How to pay for the dress

4. How to pay – Instead of using a cash deposit, use a credit card. Why? To protect your purchase in case something goes wrong. This happened to my sister-in-Law… the dress shop went out of business a few weeks before her wedding day. Thankfully it was covered by the credit card company.

Set deadlines for trying and buying the dress

5. Set deadlines – From the point you buy your dress you need to give the seamstress specific deadlines for delivering the required alterations. It’s probably a good idea to allow for a bit of leeway and set deadlines that have a 1 – 2 week contingency built in.

Bring a friend

6. Bring a friend – Or someone you trust. Someone who has a style you like – this may not be your mum and it may not be your best friend. As much as you may like the look of a dress, a good second opinion is an essential sanity check. Remember to keep things appropriate – a grand wedding probably calls for a classic wedding dress and not a short white number. A semi-formal ceremony means you can wear a coloured dress or even something more modern and funky.
