02 Oct The mise en place of your wedding
What makes a wedding unique?
Definitely the details! From the choice of clothes to the location of the reception, from the invitations to the organization of the honeymoon.
Small tricks that no one will seem to notice, but which will actually create the atmosphere you dream of. Whether it’s a rustic, vintage or elegant wedding, it doesn’t matter, the attention to detail will make your event unique. In order for the mise en place of the tables to be exclusive and unforgettable, it must also be accurate and original. Do not forget that most of the time of the day will be spent at the table and the mise en place requires the same attention paid to the menu.
Before making hasty choices, look around you: what are the predominant colors chosen for the wedding? Make sure that the tablecloth is combined with these and, if you don’t want to risk it, opt for soft colors that always give charm and elegance such as powder pink or ivory.
If the reception will take place outside, perhaps with a view of the garden, you can be daring with colors, but without exaggerating, focusing on embroidery or hems; whatever your choice, the napkins will be matched for fabric and colors. The rule requires that there is a plate on which a flat plate will be placed where the dishes will be served. The etiquette wants the fork to the left of the plate and the knife to the right with the blade inwards, the ones that are used first are those furthest from the plate. For desserts and fruit they will be placed between plate and glasses, then on the upper side of the plate; make sure all cutlery is of the same material and style.
To be perfect, a mise en place cannot fail to have an adequate centerpiece. In this case, choose something as creative and personalized as the rest of the event: candles will make the atmosphere romantic, shells and starfish if the wedding theme were the sea, while plants and glass jars decorated for the shabby chic style. Offer special arrangements, free your imagination and opt for what reflects your hobbies and passions, perhaps using books, vinyl records and old frames.
