Alexandra & Martin’s fairytale palace wedding was as near to a little gir's dream as a bride could hope to get. The couple knew exactly what they wanted for their big day from the very beginning and Sabina from slub4U helped it become a reality.
The small wooden church they chose was perfectly contrasted with a luxury palace venue with both locations enchanting all the wedding guests. Because the bride’s ancestors were French, a professional sommelier was used to influence a first rate wine selection.
In Polish tradition, the formally dressed groom will arrive at the bride’s house, who will be waiting for him in a white bridal gown. Then the bride and groom’s parents bless the couple by holding a crucifix as bride and groom kneel in front of them. Next everyone makes their way to the church. After the wedding ceremony the bride and groom’s parents stand in front of the reception venue and welcome them with a loaf of bread and salt. Then the happy couple drink a glass of champagne and throw the empty glasses behind them, when the glasses get broken it brings them good luck.
The next day, the newly weds have one more party called “poprawiny”. It usually starts about 3pm and can last till 10pm. It is a similar party to the wedding but clothes are more casual.
