About Renate

My name is Renate Badloe and proud founder of Classy Affairs – Weddings & Events. Since the start in 2009 I have had the honor working with more than 100 couples and their families. We are the first and only weddingplanner in Holland focussing on Multicultural, Interfaith and Indian/ South-Asian weddings.

Our expertise is to perfectly blend these elements and create masterpieces. Not just any masterpiece: we create Classy Weddings that reflect our couples, their background and everything they stand for.

Warm regards and hope to meet you soon!

Love, Renate

Wedding Design

What we do

We are concept thinkers and love personal stories. Our expertise is to listen and highlight the gems in your storyline. We come up with fabulous ideas and details for a wedding that that is everything you dreamed of and more! The concept consists of a written proposal and moodboards so you can visualize the wedding. Investment: €750 incl. 21% VAT excl. material.

A & J about Wedding Design

“You are so creative. We were able to really create beautiful things simply because of that. I especially think about the use of warm yet light colours and the rustic theme combined with natural materials and Indian touches. So different! The mood boards you created made us visualize the whole concept and really picture the wedding. We had to deal with our Surinamese-Indian and Dutch culture, and both a legal and Hindu ceremony as a mixed couple. It was so beautiful how this all melted together. To us it was a picture perfect!

Wedding Coördination

If you did most weddingplanning yourself you’ll dream of perfect execution on the big day(s). Are you a perfectionist and want (reading: demand) everything to run smoothly behind the scenes? That’s when you book Classy Affairs for professional wedding coordination. In a nutshell: letting go while we create a relaxed and cannot-wait-for-it-to-happen vibe in the final run to your wedding.

Few months before
We run through booking you made, timelines and from there we create a detailed timetable.
