As Manuel and I have a really large family and a lot of friends we decided to have additionally to our wedding a wedding eve party so we could also have a nice party with the family members/ friends we couldn't invite to our wedding. The party was held on Saturday the 21.05.2012 and my parents home and over 210 guest celebrated this special part in our life with us. The wedding Eve Party has a long old tradition in Germany. Guests have to bring a lot of old porcelain to the party and then have to throw it on the floor and it must broken in many small pieces. The more pieces on the floor, the longer the marriage will keep. It will also should scare away evil spirits, so the couple will have a happy marriage. But it should only be thrown porcelain and no glass. But be sure to clean this shit up wasn't really funny :)
As I was very very tired of this damn glu gun we decided to order the invites from Vistaprint as we know they have great products. Unfortunately they haven't got cards which matched our color scheme but we both fell in love with this nice postcard (We also used this Design for our Thank you cards).
The back of the invite has a lovely german verse which I found while searching the internet. It matched the theme perfectly :)
And here are pics from our wedding eve party on Saturday - love and enjoy :)
