WEDDING-WEEKEND: FRIDAY

Finally I had time to scribble down some lines, about the best weekend of my life! I will start by making this post – which is about the day (friday), before the wedding. The rest will come soon. But talking about friday – What a way to start a wedding-weekend!

We had rented the Næsbyholm Castle the whole weekend, which startet friday afternoon until midday Sunday, and the guests stayed in the rooms so they could go ALL-IN with the wedding-shananigans. Our guests were invited to a BBQ friday night, where everyone could  just enjoy the time and meet the other guests. It was the perfect time to mingle! :)
Now looking back, we are really happy with our decision to start Friday. We had a really good time, and the atmosphere was very relaxed, and our goal was to make them feel welcome. The wedding-days went by so quickly, but having the BBQ meant we could relax a little before “the big day” (It should really be called the biggest, if I had a say! ;) ) and enjoy our friends and family a little, and show them how much we loved having them there. Normally we don’t have the opportunity to spend so much time with our loved ones, because we live so far away from them. So it was amazing to have them all together for a few days.

I went with the perfect bride-to-be look, in a beautiful & relaxed white dress from The Stone Cold Fox

The BBQ was held outside, even though it was a little chilly – but nothing a blanket couldn’t help with. The atmosphere was great and everyone really took the “mingle” seriously :) Daniel & I said multiple times during friday night, that it was amazing to see how everyone was so relaxed and happy. That was all we were hoping and wishing for!
Afterwards, coffee and drinks were served inside the castle before it was time to say goodnight so everyone could get ready for the big day. I slept like a baby, no problems there – but it was a bit lonely to sleep alone in the bridal-suite. But everything helped building up the atmosphere that took place Saturday, even though I missed a goodnight-kiss from Daniel. Luckily I got so many extra kisses Saturday ;)

// Endelig har jeg haft lidt tid til at få skrevet lidt ned, om den absolut bedste weekend i mit liv! Tanken er, at jeg starter med dette indlæg, som omhandler dagen inden brylluppet (fredag). Resten kommer snart herinde også. Men lad mig starte ud med fredag – for sikke en start på bryllups-weekenden!

Vi havde lejet Næstbyholm Slot hele weekenden, og startede derfor festen af fredag indtil ved middagstiden Søndag. Gæsterne boede på slottet og nogle havde indlogeret sig ved omkringliggende overnatningsmuligheder, sådan de kunne gå ALL-IN på festlighederne alle dagene. Gæsterne var inviteret til en fredag BBQ, hvor alle blot skulle slappe af og nyde aftenen, samt mødes med de øvrige gæster. Det var helt perfekt for at få rystet gæsterne sammen! :)
Nu hvor vi ser på tilbage på weekenden, er vi lykkelige for at have startet fredag med at mødes. Vi havde en skøn aften og atmosfæren var dejligt afslappet, og alle fik stort set mødt hinanden på kryds og tværs af familier og venner imellem. Det gjorde det også lettere for gæsterne at være sammen om brylluppet lørdag, da de havde fået “small-talket” sig fri fra det første møde ;) . Bryllups-weekenden gik simpelthen så hurtigt, men BBQ’en gjorde at vi startede med en hyggelig og afslappet tilgang inden “den store dag” (som burde blive omdøbt til at hedde den største, hvis det står til mig! ;) ) og vi kunne nyde vores familie og venner lidt mere, og vise dem hvor glade og taknemmelige vi er for at de kom. For os betyder det virkelig meget at se al vores familie og alle vores venner, da vi jo ikke gør det så meget i hverdagen pga. den store afstand – så vi var SÅ lykkelige over at have alle samlet.

BBQ’en blev holdt under åben himmel – og det blev lidt køligt – men ikke noget et tæppe ikke kunne klare. Gæsterne tog det i stiv arm og så sad vi bare lidt tættere ;) Atmosfæren var virkelig god og alle blev rystet godt sammen på kryds og tværs. Bagefter blev kaffen og drinks serveret inde på slottet, inden alle lige så stille gik i seng. Jeg sov simpelthen SÅ godt, selvom det var lidt ensomt at sove alene i brude-suiten. Men det hele byggede op til stemningen lørdag :) //
