Weddings equal traditions; the father of the bride is giving his daughter away, the groom is not allowed to see the wedding dress before the wedding and the groom’s socks must be cut after the wedding dance. But that does not mean that you cannot play around with the format. Get inspiration for your wedding here.
It does not get more romantic; you exchange vows under the southern blue sky and sun and with the mountains looming in the horizon. The south European wedding not only makes for a wonderful wedding ceremony and party but also for a couple of unforgettable days where you and your family and friends celebrate your love.
Here the wedding has also been taken out of its classic context. But while the guests may not stay for days as is the case with the south European wedding, they will most likely stay the night in anticipation of an all-night party. At the same time, the rural wedding is more relaxed where you can set the tables in the courtyard and where the guests – perhaps instead of expensive presents – can bring delicious dishes.
It is not without reason that the classic wedding is... well, classic. As all other weddings, it takes a lot of planning, but the “script” is more in tune with the classic wedding. This may in fact give you greater freedom as to how the evening should progress, and the classic wedding often allows a greater degree of luxury in terms of food, reception rooms and wedding band.

The cocktail site bagombaren.dk has talked with some of the Copenhagen cocktail bars to learn which drinks are the most popular. This is their top 4:
Ginger beer, rum, ice and a slice of lime. Hey presto! You now have the fourth most popular (and somewhat crusty) drink in Copenhagen.
Rye whisky, vermouth, maraschino liqueur and bitters. The Manhattan is usually served in a high-stemmed, feminine glass, yet it is a drink that both princesses and princes can drink all night.
Whisky, lemon, sugar, bitters and egg white. A classic that can be traced back to the days when women curtseyed and men wore hats.
Bourbon whisky, sugar, angostura bitters and soda. This is the most popular drink, which makes it a must-have in your wedding bar. It is said to originate from the 1880s gentlemen’s clubs in the Southern States of the USA before being brought to the fashionable Waldorf-Astoria Hotel in New York.
