10 tips for your eaves

Are you planning a baptism and wedding? Then celebrate the eaves! The carefree linking of both happy celebrations is simply brilliant. Are you in? We have 10 tips for your eaves that will make your planning easier.

The term “eaves” sounds adventurous. “Marriage” and “baptism” merge into one word. In fact, it turns into a special celebration:

The church wedding of the bride and groom and the baptism of the offspring are celebrated in a joint service. The joint family celebration that follows becomes an extraordinary party.

Of course, one eaves doesn’t suit everyone. But the advantages compared to two separate festivals are obvious: you only need one appointment, everything only has to be organized once, you only have to travel once and of course you only have to pay for one event.

But there are two emotions!

Convinced? Let’s get started with our 10 tips for your eaves!

10 tips for your eaves

1. Creates a connection between marriage and baptism

It should be clear to everyone from the start that baptism and marriage are celebrated together. Plan it well and involve the pastor, location, catering and other service providers.

Make your guests aware of the connection between marriage and baptism in the invitation. A family picture with the bridal couple and the person to be baptized and the rough schedule of the celebration on the invitation create clarity.

Various program items from/with godparents and witnesses in the service and during the celebration combine wedding and baptism – also during the course of your celebrations.

2. As a bridal couple, put yourself and your baptized in the center of attention

Finding the balance between marriage and baptism at an eaves is not easy. With a varied schedule, both festivals get their place:

  • Bring godparents and witnesses to the front during the service.
  • Takes photos with all guests, family photos in which the baptismal child is the focus and couple shoots just for two.
  • Plan program items for the baptized and for the bridal couple – just alternate.

3. Marriage ceremony including baptism?

Be sure to involve your pastor in the planning of the wedding and baptism ceremony in good time! You benefit from his experience and discuss the process in detail in advance.

We recommend that baptism should consciously have its own part in the church. Your baptismal child does not miss out and godparents, parents and children stand around the baptismal font – very classic.

During your wedding ceremony before or after the baptism, your baptismal child sits on grandma’s lap.

All in all, the part in the church should not last longer than an hour, so that the person being baptized and the other children do not become too restless.

4. Wedding candle and christening candle

A christening candle for the baptized and a wedding candle for the newlyweds. This puts both ceremonies equally in the spotlight. As you light the candles for years to come, you will remember the happy occasion.

Our dream vision: when the two candles are similar in style and go well together 🙂

5. When does your eaves start?

While pure weddings often only start in the afternoon, your eaves should start by noon at the latest. This is more pleasant for your baby and the other little guests.

You should plan the highlights of the celebration for the afternoon. Then you can retire in the evening when your child gets tired.

6. Extraordinary floristry on your eaves?

At weddings, floristry plays a special role. It’s no different with your eaves: think about your bridal bouquet and the floristry for your wedding together with your florist.

And for the baptized? Emphasize the place of your baptized child with floral decorations.

For our shoot, Simone conjured up the floristry of rosemary and thyme. The round wreath skilfully sets the scene for the imposing wedding cake. Thanks to the lush flowers and leaves, the simple center of the table becomes an overwhelming banquet.

Special custom for the baptized

Many herbs and flowers have always had a symbolic meaning. Worked into bridal bouquets, hair rings or boutonniere or thrown after church, they express desires and meanings. That’s tradition.

So it says e.g rosemary for loyalty & love and is said to ward off evil. During lavender stands for the purity of love and faithfulness and thyme Expresses strength, courage and bravery. basil stands for inner strength and vigilance, myrtle for everlasting love and fertility and sage to prevent negative energy from spreading.

Our idea: Why can’t you make a wish for your baby too? Simone has placed small bowls on the table and symbolically expresses wishes for love and loyalty, strength and courage and protection with rosemary, thyme, basil and sage.

7. Wedding menu – also for children!

Juicy roast and flambéed dessert? At an eaves, count on children! Keep this in mind when planning your buffet. With deliciously cooked vegetables and a delicious selection of pasta, you will make all your guests happy – big or small.

It is important that all your guests feel comfortable and celebrate a happy family celebration with you.

8. Wedding Cake and Christening Cake

How about wedding cake and christening cake? So that the christening doesn’t go down over coffee and cake, you place a smaller, beautifully decorated christening cake next to your impressive wedding cake.

Tamara from Café Kommod baked our wedding cake. The beautiful cake decorated with flowers and leaves makes our mouths water. Hmm delicious!

9. Organize children’s program!

At an eaves there are often many small guests. A fun children’s program that dear friends of the bridal couple look after is a hit and makes everyone happy!

How about your own “children’s room” where you can romp around, do handicrafts and cheer? Or a scavenger hunt through the garden of the location?

When planning the children’s program, pay attention to the age of the children – is a scavenger hunt possible or are tricycles and building blocks enough?

The little guests are happy at the end of the day while their parents were able to relax and enjoy the festivities 🙂

Noble tablecloths and chairs covered with slipcovers. Shiny crockery on top and a few candles in the middle? At least.

An eaves requires a lot of organization and preparation, but your festive decoration should not be neglected.

You should also value two separate gift tables, each decorated according to the occasion. By the way, they also show in the location that both occasions are of equal value to you.

We have put together decorative elements for your eaves that will make your eaves something very special. Shop the look!
