Uta-Maria and Clemens tied their knot last week in August last year and it was trully international wedding with guests form all over the world, more then 20 children and 3 days of celebrations.
We had 8 months for preparation, squeezed into a few meetings and emails. Althought bride used to live in Prague and her husband visited her often, meetings were very iregular, the schedule was just tight. Top manager position is connected with lot of work, travelling and after unexpected promotion and moving to another country just a few weeks before the wedding the time was really short. However, we tried to be as much efficient as possible and adjusted our schedule to couple´s needs (main communication was usually on Sun midnight ).
To help the guests with the RSVP´s and updates about all events, we created wedding websites for couple, where we could add online attendance to all events, but also guests could vote for their favourite songs, leave their message or get informed about activities for kids.
Most of the guests stayed at one hotel, which was big advantage for couple and us as well, logistic was much easier. We arranged welcome dinner with typical czech food in popular pub, which was a great start for Friday. Guests did enjoy sausages, Prague ham, goulash etc and of course czech beer.
Saturday morning started with river cruise and champagne on board, which everyone loved and then the boat stopped at the hotel Intercontinental. Informal lunch on the terrace, buffet style, good wine and lovely weather was all what we needed.
Minibuses brought guests back to the hotel and picked them in a few hours later. Normally people have to walk to the Prague castle, but guests enjoyed being escorted right in front of the Lobkowicz palace. In the meantime newlyweds walked together with the photographer on the old castle steps and joined their guests on the balcony, where the cocktail was served.
Couple speeches followed and becaue the view was just amazing, we spent there a bit more time then originally planned. Reception took place in lovely palace hall, decorated with beautiful flowers in shades of purple and lila, we used mainly exotic flowers.
Special room was prepared for children – babysitters sit with them at the table, animators prepared many games, T-shart drawing and children almost forgot their parents are sitting in the next room. And for those, who were asleep, was prepared separate room with children beds.
Couple attended dancing classes and wanted to share their skills, so 2 amazing latino dancers came for the event to teach guests something new. Dance floor was full! DJ continued to play untill the end of the party long after midnight, cocktails and late snack was served and tired, but happy guests were brought back to the hotel.
Sunday was just relaxed – we all met at the hotel for a brunch and latet on said Good bye to everyone. Tired, but excited – this wedding was just perfect!
