Support our wedding venues

Did you enjoy your time at the Hotel Palota? What about the wine dinner at Thummerer? Of course you did. We all had a great time at both locations.

So how about showing our appreciation and support for these 2 great venues and write a few short sentences on their Tripadvisor pages telling the world what great hosts they were.

They didn’t ask us to do this, but these feedback and reviews are very important in the hospitality industry, especially for smaller venues such as these and they would be very happy that we made the effort.

Here are the links:

It will only take a few minutes. Thanks guys 🙂

Music on the vinyl invitation

A lot of you have been asking about the music featured on the vinyl invitations mainly because you don’t have a record player. Guess what? We don’t have one either and haven’t actually listened to the vinyl ourselves yet. Luckily, though, we have the music not only in digital form but also in video form. Check out the music videos for NoRey‘s On Our Way and Low Wires‘ Beneath Your Skin, both produced by Infinitum.

Hungarian alcohol at the wedding

Hungarians love their alcohol. So it is only fitting that we sourced the top quality pálinka, wine, champagne and beer for our guests at the wedding.

Pálinka is the drink of choice in Hungary. This is a type of brandy that is made exclusively from fresh fruits within the country and free of additional ingredients or additives. You’ll often be offered a shot of pálinka as a welcoming. In fact, a traditional Hungarian greeting is “Pálinkás jĂł reggelt!” which means “Good morning with pálinka!”

So what will we have for our guests?

Hungarian Wedding Traditions

Since most of our guests are coming from abroad and may not be aware of what happens at a Hungarian wedding, we figured it would be a good idea to talk about the traditions that we will be incorporating during the wedding night. This will hopefully prepare you for what you can expect and look forward to.

The main events of the night after the dinner reception are the following:

  • Bridal dance
  • Folk dance show
  • The red dress
  • Groom’s surprise
  • Midnight breakfast

So who’s filming our wedding?

This is the #1 question everyone asked immediately after congratulating us when we announced our big day. “So who’s going to film your wedding?” they wondered.

Well, we’re ecstatic to tell you that we’ve got the very best in the business, stillmotion.

Not only are they the ones who revolutionized the way wedding films are made, they are the inspiration for us venturing into the industry with Infinitum Weddings.

What will Jason be wearing?

Jason had never done so much shopping in his life before. 3 to 4 times a week for nearly a month. And all for only one item: his wedding suit.

He went through all the department stores in London, which is no easy task even for the seasoned shopper. He bravely took on the constantly hounding sales staff at all the high-end designer stores, but escaped only to be more confused than ever. He scoured through the listings on ebay for Lanvin, Corneliani, Versace, Juun.J and found nothing worth his while. What was supposed to be a simple chore turned into more trouble than Sophie’s wedding dress.

Everything was too plain and boring and anything that Jason was remotely interested in was too sporty or not formal enough.

That was until he walked into William Hunt on Saville Row and liked what he saw.

How many countries are coming?

Most weddings have 1 or 2 tables reserved for their international guests who have made the effort of travelling to attend. Then there are destination weddings, which have guests coming mostly from the same place in an effort to get away for the week.

Our wedding is unique in that almost all of our guests are coming from different places – many travelling half way around the world. We really appreciate the enthusiasm that everyone has shown in dropping everything they are doing and coming to our secluded location to celebrate with us. For our lifestyle, it’s only fitting that our wedding would be this way.

Thank you so much for the effort that you are putting in for us and we promise that this will be something special and will exceed all of your expectations.

So how many countries are we talking about here? It’s a lot. 24 to be exact. And almost as many languages will be represented as well.

Here is the list of countries that will be there and how many from each are attending:
