Casual Park Wedding in Germany

Casual park wedding in Germany (34)

Iris and Josef planned their entire wedding by themselves. They wanted something casual and fun rather than formal and stuffy, so they chose to have their reception in a park in Regensburg, Germany.

“We wanted everybody to feel comfortable”, they explained. “So there were no rules, only a lot of friends and good spirits. We basically changed everything we didn’t like about weddings!”

“One of our favourite things was the ‘friendbook’ that we made instead of a guestbook. Everybody had to fill it out and say things about us, for example what animal they think we’d be, what other names we could have… it was really funny to read the next day!”

The bride’s incredible dress was homemade and was the biggest saving of the whole wedding. They even attached paper butterflies to the outside! “The skirt was made from a mosquito net from Ikea!” Iris laughed.

“Our advice to other couples would be to try not to stress out”, she concluded. “If things go wrong – so what!? – it just give it the chance to be great! Our original caterers pulled out but instead of getting panicked, we found someone else and they ended up being even better in the end!”

    My Mum made ny dress and used ikea curtains too. So much cheaper than buying the fabric and Ikea is my favourite shop so I got to have it on my wedding day too!

    I’d like to toast the bride and groom for designing their beautiful wedding in such a way that they were able to enjoy it, too. So many fun and creative ideas. Undoubtedly other brides will want to wear a similar dress. She may have started a trend.

    Great copy of the Kaviar Gauche gown from the Papillon D’Amour collection 2015. Love it!
