In the last few years, more and more couples decide to hold a wedding event in the European style. A European wedding is more like a social event in a calm and romantic atmosphere.

The difference between the two solemn events

According to European customs, the young woman is given by her father or the closest male relative. You can combine the traditions of both peoples, but usually, the European style is chosen because of the lack of bride price in it. Also, at such a wedding, there will be no toastmaster, serving bread with salt, and other familiar rites.

According to the tradition of European wedding Banquet hosts leading, or as it is often called, entertainer. It does not so much entertain guests as create a favorable atmosphere for them and the young. The entertainer announces musical pauses, gives the right to toast, focuses on the special moments of the evening.

A wedding in European style (photo can be seen in the article) is more spectacular, as artists, circus performers, magicians, and singers are invited to entertain guests. Young shows a short film about the history of their acquaintance and love. For all those present organized the most comfortable conditions for a pleasant time.

Another feature of the European celebration is the presence of bridesmaids and groomsmen. Outfits for each of them are purchased in advance. Bridesmaids' dresses are made of a fabric of the same color and texture, but in different styles, depending on the shape of each. Friends are dressed in tuxedos or suits like the groom. At the European celebration, each girlfriend has a bouquet. The details of the dress at the bridesmaids and friends are in the same colors to blend in with the chosen decor of the wedding.

Traditions of the event

The main traditions of a European wedding are:

  1. Services of professional decorators, managers, photographers, etc.
  2. The wedding and the away wedding ceremony take place on the same day.
  3. The participation of the younger generation - girls sprinkle the path to the altar with flower petals, and the boy brings wedding rings.
  4. In contrast to the Slavic celebration, where there is one witness from each side, there are always some friends and girlfriends in a European wedding.
  5. Lighting a candle of unity. The tradition is like stirring up a “family hearth,” but it is held after the wedding ceremony.
  6. The absence of a toastmaster with banal competitions. Instead, they invite a professional presenter.
  7. The design of a European wedding is tied to a specific theme and the chosen color palette.
  8. Stand-alone tables for invited guests, on average, designed for ten people. Each of them is beautifully designed and provides a seating card.

What should not be at a European wedding?

It is carefully planned. Every detail must comply with the plan. All performances take place at the specified time, there is no room for improvisation, typical Slavic customs. Be sure to a pre-written script. At a European wedding, the traditional theft of the bride and the ransom, vulgar contests, shedding grain or sugar, giving a loaf, etc. are excluded. If the young are ready to abandon these customs, the celebration in the European style is ideal for them.

How the event goes?

According to the scenario, a European-style wedding begins in the morning. This day belongs entirely to the couple. Waking up in the morning, they bring beauty without fuss, meet and go to a photoshoot. After that, with friends go to the venue of the ceremony, where they are waiting for invited guests. The bride is led to the altar by her father.

He sets the pace for the celebration, where the guests were able to congratulate the newlyweds and to have fun. The couple cut the cake and dance their first dance. The Banquet doesn't last long. As a rule, the newlyweds are the first to leave the event, leaving the invited guests to have fun.

Finally, the bride throws a bouquet to her unmarried friends. If fireworks were organized or launching paper lanterns into the sky, it is the final part of the evening, after it the young leave. As a thank, you for the gifts and congratulations from the Bridal couple to each guest presented a miniature of the same thing. Photos from European weddings remind of this solemn day.

When choosing the main color scheme of the celebration, it is important to take into account the venue, wedding theme and time of year:

  • universal all-season shades are pink, cream and blue;
  • for the fall best-suited wine, orange, and chocolate color;
  • for the winter period - deep purple, emerald, and scarlet;
  • for spring and summer - bright or, conversely, muted pastel colors.

All colors are a different variety of colors, so it is important to determine the correct color scheme. For example, red-haired girls and brown-haired women are perfect lilac color. At the same time, it should not dominate in the design, it is enough to place a few accents. To the bride stood out against the background of the holiday and those present, her outfit should be bright. But the dresses of girlfriends, on the contrary, need to be made contrasting - this difference looks especially good on the photos.

Before you choose the color scheme of the wedding, you need to focus on the choice of fresh flowers, because blue or purple plants are much smaller than pink or red. The combination of sharply contrasting shades looks exquisite:

  • pink with brown;
  • red and blue;
  • green and orange.

The white color at the wedding is always appropriate.

Banquet and festivities

European weddings do not last long. The Banquet usually lasts for several hours. The ceremony is not heavy serves home-cooked meals, which are usually light snacks, fruit, and cold meats, salads, tarts, and canapés.

On the table in front of the memorial book of wishes and Seating plan. At each place at the table, there are cards with the names of the guests and miniature gifts of thanks from the newlyweds. The format of the celebration is more close to a social event than to a feast, so it is desirable to inform the most active friends and relatives about the style of the event in advance.

Entertainment

Since the wedding is conducted by the entertainer, he announces the numbers of the program and gives the right to speak. Music should be live. The evening's program should be in advance, it involved fakirs, dancers, musicians, pyrotechnics, etc. It starts the fun part with the first dance of the young. On the screen show funny pictures of each of the spouses or the history of their acquaintance.

Photo session

Before the wedding or after it, the young go for a wedding walk. During it, the invited photographer conducts a photoshoot, according to the chosen theme or pre-agreed preferences. Friends do not participate in it, usually, it happens later, at a Banquet, or in the morning, after the young people gather.

      Square Enix published a translation of the session of answers to investors ' questions about its financial results in the first half of the current fiscal year. Chief Executive Yosuke Matsuda confirmed that sales of "The Avengers" were below expectations and that the action role-playing movie has not yet paid off its production budget.

      Earlier it became known that Square Enix sold only 60% of the planned circulation of "The Avengers". It is estimated to have a budget of between $170 million to $190 million, with initial sales of only about 3 million copies. Because of this, the company's HD division lost approximately $ 62 million in the second quarter.
      Matsuda noted that if The Avengers hadn't been released last quarter, the HD division would have remained in the black. However, the losses were caused not only by the non-recouped development costs, but also by the marketing campaign, which suffered due to delays caused by the coronavirus pandemic.
      That being said, Square Enix still intends to make it profitable with post-release support. Last week, the developers announced that Kate Bishop will appear in The Avengers on December 8th.

      Flax seeds are an amazing superfood that combines a huge variety of different nutrients and is useful for all body systems. Even in ancient Greece, a decoction of Flaxseed was used as an anti-inflammatory agent, and for more than two thousand years, doctors have strongly recommended adding it to the diet. What is so useful flax seeds and how best to use them in food, we tell in our material.

      What are the benefits of flax seeds?
      Flax seeds contain the plant compound linamarin - it evenly envelops the walls of the stomach, creating a protective film on it that prevents harmful toxins from being absorbed, and protects the stomach mucosa from ulcers and gastritis. In addition, the high concentration of omega-3 and -6 fatty acids in flaxseed significantly increases the elasticity of blood vessels and heart muscle, strengthens them, and helps in the prevention of cardiovascular diseases. Even if you don't have heart problems right now, regular consumption of flax seeds reduces the risk of them appearing in the future.

      Flaxseed is a source of antioxidant compounds. They protect body cells from free radical damage and have powerful anti-inflammatory effects. Antioxidants are the real elixir of youth: they nourish the skin from the inside, prevent the signs of aging and hyperpigmentation and protect the skin from the harmful effects of ultraviolet rays.
      Flax seeds are rich in magnesium and phosphorus, which are essential for the proper functioning of the brain and nervous system. They increase concentration and performance and improve memory. A number of active substances in flaxseed strengthen bones, muscles, and tendons, prevent respiratory diseases, and restore the acid-base balance of the body.
      What's more, flax seeds are essential in your diet if you are looking to lose weight. They help burn visceral fat, and due to their high nutritional value, they provide long-term satiety and significantly reduce the risk of overeating.

      How to add flax seeds to your diet?
      The most important thing: it is useless to add whole flax seeds to food - the hard shell of the seed is beyond the strength of our stomach, which means that not a single nutrient will be absorbed by the body. The seeds can be crushed, or they can be soaked in warm water for 1-2 hours (then the shell will become soft and easily digested, and useful substances will enter the body).

      Further, in chopped or soaked form, flax can be added anywhere - here you are limited only by your imagination. Flax seeds are a great addition to your morning porridge, smoothie, or avocado toast. They can be sprinkled on salads, vegetables, and meat dishes, added to cream soups and stews.

      It is no secret that the Caucasian holidays fascinate with their beauty, a large number of guests, beautiful dresses and a rich table. Gaumarjos – traditional Georgian wedding is currently held in compliance with ancient rules, although modern innovations have made their adjustments. The article will tell about how the newlyweds are now welcoming guests in this country.
      Old national customs and traditions
      It is now the Georgian wedding is preceded by an acquaintance of the future spouses. It used to be a custom when the groom stole his future wife. He may not have disappeared now and is still practising in distant mountain villages.
      To the parents of the girl almost never came back because her honor has been desecrated. In order not to cause discontent of neighbors and numerous relatives, parents had to take this step. Often women committed suicide because of unwillingness to marry the unloved. Of course, there are many cases when there was a strong and friendly family.
      Georgians are very hospitable people. On such a great holiday is still accepted to invite all relatives from the bride and groom. It is polite to accept. This causes offense, and can even put in a special book the names of people who did not share the joy of the family. That is why, following the tradition, Georgian wedding gathers a huge number of people.
      After the wedding night, the mother-in-law took out a sheet from a bed of newlyweds to prove chastity of the daughter-in-law. If the girl was not a virgin, she was thrown out in disgrace.
      On the wedding table, young put only sweets that none of the guests did see how the wife eats.
      Previously, the holiday, when a new family was formed, was celebrated only in the house of the bride or groom. Despite the fact that now a lot of European learned in the celebration, a lot of rituals left. But about them in order.
      Machankloba
      This is the Georgian name for the first stage – matchmaking. Of course, now young themselves meet and choose a mate, but without the approval of the parents will not be a ceremony. There are exceptions, but children try to educate so that they listen to the opinion of elders.
      Here the rites of Georgian wedding are not much different from Russian. The groom must come to the bride's house with relatives to ask for her hand. The girl's parents meet matchmakers with a magnificent feast, during which the young man's side praises him. They should list all the positive aspects.

      Everyone is waiting for the appearance of the bride, who must give their consent to marry. And with a positive answer, the feast continues. Often even neighbors are involved in this process.
      Then the holiday is moved to the house of the future husband, where the table is also laid.
      Nishnoba
      As well as the Georgian wedding, preparation takes place to some days. It's time to get engaged to a young man and a girl.
      Taking with them a lot of gifts (it may even be just flowers, an expensive bottle of cognac and sweets), the groom's parents with him again visit the bride's house. On the table should be national dishes and a lot of wine, which should not end until the matchmakers at a party. Therefore, they are stocked in advance.
      Men and women before the feast are divided, discuss various topics. And now the guy is sitting next to his beloved. Everyone is waiting for the groom's father to stand up and make his toast, in which he will Express the joy of the upcoming kinship with the bride's parents. Only then will be presented with a beautiful ring future wife (sometimes a family heirloom, which passes from generation to generation). The fun doesn't end there. No one should be left out.
      During the talks, the financial and organizational aspects will be touched upon. Discuss the wedding venue. More often, almost everything has to pay for the groom's side.
      When the matchmakers gather, they are given khachapuri and various sweets.
      Bridal clothes
      Buying clothes also occurs according to tradition. So, for the Georgian wedding, the future husband buys beautiful clothes for the girl.
      The outfit should consist of two parts. A shirt with a collar is worn down. He shows modesty and innocence. From above there is a black or light-colored dress, which according to tradition should be richly embroidered, the sleeves have deep cuts. Bride necessarily girdled. Girlfriends braided a braid and put on a headdress with a veil - chikhti-mines or mandilias. The neck can be decorated with a beautiful necklace and pearl thread.

      The groom had previously picked up the outfit (us to make a chokha) bride. It consisted of a white shirt with a stand-up collar. On top was dark or light shade cloak, embroidered with gold, with satin lining. The groom was belted and unarmed. On feet - leather boots.
