MEXICAN INSPIRED ELOPEMENT-HOW TO CONFIDENTLY TELL FAMILY & FRIENDS YOUR ELOPING (3)

Assuming you’re a human being with actual feelings, you probably care at least a little about what people think? Yeah yeah I know we preach alot about your ‘wedding day being your way’ but unless you have a heart of stone, you never truly turn off to what people are saying about you, it’s human nature after all? So it should come as no surprise that the fear of telling people you have decided to elope is a concern for many couples who have made that very decision as reader Abbie explained in her recent comment on our blog…

“We have decided to elope – we did have a blessing to do so by my parents but now that I have mentioned it again it hasn’t really gone down well, as if they’ve completely changed their minds on the idea? We are still doing it regardless but its kind of put a dampener on it… I’m so excited to elope and likewise cannot wait to be his wife. But just the daunting fact of how to tell people, especially when the reception is 4 months after we are married? Any advice on how to tell people? Is it rude to  just send an invite to our party? Or do we publicly announce? Please help! I’m in such a panic about it.”

While there are many good reasons for couples wanting to elope i.e costs, stress, family feuds etc, you really shouldn’t let your fear of telling people about your decisions prevent you from following your dream wedding, so we have compiled a list of helpful tips to hopefully make that process easier.

Happy Friday lovely people! It’s my Birthday on Sunday and I’m throwing a little mini party with the girls at my house before we head out for a night on the town, I always look forward to this every year, coming up with fun ideas for the little pre drinks session! This time I thought it would be cute to make a bunch of boozy alcoholic ice pops that I can keep in an ice bucket and everyone can help themselves to! Please be sunny tomorrow….PLEASE! Here’s how you can make a bunch of the same ones I’ve made…

TEQUILA SUNRISE

First up is the tequila sunrise! Now don’t cringe, I know some of you hate tequila but this one really is delicious, it’s got fresh blended pineapple inside and who can resist the pretty ombre effect it makes on the ice pop!

YOU WILL NEED (MAKES 12 ICE LOLLIES):

3/4 Cup tequila // 2 cups of pineapple juice // 1lb fresh pineapple, peeled and blended // 1/4 cup grenadine //

STEP 1.

Combine the blended fresh pineapple, pineapple juice and the tequila into a jug and stir well.

STEP 2:

Fill the ice pop moulds about 3/4 full (my moulds had a little fill line on them which was really helpful!)

STEP 3:

Finally, pour about one 1 teaspoon of grenadine into each pop and allow it to sink to the bottom of the pop. Then press it into the bottom of the mould and give it a little mix at the bottom by massaging the bottom half of the lolly to create the ombre effect! Then quickly pop them in the freezer!
