Another wedding from abroad took place in July 2017 at the Riessersee Hotel Garmisch-Partenkirchen in Bavaria. So many lovely details were prepared by the bride and groom and their friends to make it a perfect wedding weekend in Germany

The party started with a gathering of the wedding guests Friday night at the lake house. Initially, the evening was planned at the hotels Biergarten but it started raining in the afternoon and so we switched the Bavarian BBQ dinner to the Kaminzimmer at the lake house.

The decoration was rustic Bavarian in blue and white, fresh herbs in paper bags, pretzels and wooden candle holders. The bride brought the cute "Bavarian heart" straws to complete the set-up for the Bavarian BBQ.

Next morning the bridal bouquet as well as the bridesmaids bouquets were delivered to the wedding venue Riessersee Hotel and brought - together with boutonnieres and flower bracelets for the groom, best men and Mums - to the "Residence" at the lake house where the getting ready took place. The colour scheme was white, green, grey, brown with slight shades of lilac and the special wish for the bouquet was something like wild flowers, nothing straight, a natural look. Here is the result from Passiflori:

The flowers for the altar centerpiece and the flower arch were chosen according to the bridal bouquet. Some paper hearts made from music sheets - hand-crafted by the bride and her friends - were hanging along the aisle on the sides of the white carpet.

The seating plan for the wedding dinner at the lake house of the Riessersee Hotel Resort was another hand-craft project from the bride and really fascinating: On a big wooden board milk churns with guest names found their place and between the flowers in the churns the wooden table numbers were placed. The same numbers took place on each table.
