Elopement, a new trend in the world of weddings

Every time we hear more the term Elopement that refers to a new trend in the world of weddings.

This trend consists in a choice of the couple to celebrate their wedding alone and possibly out of their city and even outside of their country.

There are couples that want to escape from conventional and to share this intimate moment, without being under the eye of relatives and friends, without any planning and certain amount of expenses for food, wedding car, stationery, and much more.

Only them in a paradisiacal beach a summer afternoon, or in a garden full of flowers in some historical and charming mansion…Only them, their love and their words that will seal that moment forever.

All that daring and passionate couples that decide to choose this different way to say “Yes, I do”, should know that there are many advantages that make the elopement a simple and fascinating way to replace the traditional wedding:

  • The planning of an elopement is much more simple. It’s mainly about looking for the date that is in the couple interest, and especially, to decide where to realize it. In the elopement, there are very few suppliers involved: a location, an officiant, a photographer, flowers, make up artist, hairdresser and location for a romantic dinner.
  • Therefore the expenses are mínimum unlike the typical wedding.
  • Another advantage is to join the elopement with the honeymoon in some exotic and attractive place.

Claves para ser el perfecto anfitrión

Todas las claves para ser el perfecto anfitrión, sencillos consejos para que vuestras veladas sean perfectas.

Se acerca la Navidad y con ella las numerosas comidas y cenas entre amigos, familiares, compañeros de trabajo, y un infinito etcétera. A veces tenemos la suerte de ser los invitados, pero otras nos toca el papel de anfitrión. Empezamos a decidir a quién invitar, qué platos preparar, y cómo vamos a montar la mesa. Y justamente en ese momento nos preguntamos cómo colocar la vajilla, si poner un centro de flores o velas, si es mejor un mantel liso o estampado, etc.

Antes de entrar en pánico, os dejo algunos sencillos consejos para que vuestras veladas sean perfectas.

Hay diferentes maneras de montar una mesa dependiendo del tipo de cena o evento que se organice. Las cenas/comidas de Navidad, son encuentros entre familiares y amigos, en un ambiente más relajado y distendido, donde se olvida el protocolo aunque hay algunas pequeñas indicaciones que sería importante seguir. Se puede dar vía libre a la creatividad, utilizando mantelería de colores, mesas “desnudas”, estampados, etc. Y lo mismo se puede hacer con las vajillas y cubertería. Pero a la hora de colocar los elementos en la mesa, es importante seguir algunas normas como se puede ver en la imagen.

Claves para ser el perfecto anfitrión

Estas son las claves para ser el perfecto anfitrión

Las servilletas pueden ir encima del plato o a la izquierda acompañando al tenedor. La cristalería se coloca arriba y a la derecha del plato, y como se trata de una mesa informal, se aconseja poner como máximo 2 copas (1 vaso para el agua y 1 copa para el vino). Recordad que lo que queremos conseguir es facilitar las cosas a los comensales y no volverlos locos con demasiados elementos en la mesa.

También es importante  adaptar el tamaño de la mesa al número de comensales, teniendo en cuenta que cada uno necesita un espacio aproximado de 80cms. No os recomiendo tener la televisión encendida a no ser que se trate de las campanadas de fin de año. Es aconsejable una música de fondo que acompañe la velada.

La distribución de invitados también es muy importante para crear un ambiente distendido. Los anfitriones deben estar en los extremos de la mesa y cerca de la entrada a la cocina. Si hay niños, es bueno montar una mesa a parte con una zona de juegos. Para el resto de invitados, es importante tener en cuenta la alternancia de sexos, la integración de extranjeros con nativos y la ley del descanso matrimonial en la que se separan a las personas que tengan algún lazo íntimo o familiar para favorecer la conversación.

Se puede añadir un centro de flores o algún detalle decorativo pero es importante que no entorpezcan la visión entre los comensales. Las velas sólo se ponen en las cenas. Incluso se puede poner un detalle o un mensaje para cada invitado al lado o encima del plato.

Os dejo algunas fotos de inspiración para una mesa navideña en tonos crema, dorado y vino. ¡Espero os gusten!

¡FELICES FIESTAS!
