How to plan a wedding in Spain

If you are dreaming to get married in some spanish city but you don’t know how to plan a wedding in Spain, here you can find some advices so make your dream come true.

 HOW TO CHOOSE THE CITY/REGION FOR YOUR WEDDING IN SPAIN

If you love this country but you don’t know which city to choose so you can say “I do”, firstly I advise you to define what kind of wedding you want.

Are you dreaming about a beach wedding or a wedding in a garden or in a private villa?

Do you prefer a Renaissance castle or some Arabic fortress? Depending on the place where you would like to seal your love, you can choose different areas of Spain.

Another very important element is your budget because it’s not the same to get married in some areas in Southern Spain than in the North or in big cities like Barcelona where you can find some differences in costs.

For example in Andalucia there are many options for different kinds of wedding.

For luxury weddings, in private beaches clubs or in luxury villas, the area of Marbella is undoubtedly the perfect location for an exclusive wedding.

If you are dreaming about a romantic and historic location, the options are infinite: Granada and its Alhambra, or cities as Seville or Cordoba offer the best venues for this kind of weddings.

Once you are sure about where to get married, you should solve another question… How to plan the wedding from far away?

THE WEDDING PLANNING SERVICE AS THE BEST SOLUTION TO PLAN YOUR WEDDING IN SPAIN

I know, you’re already thinking…I don’t want to spend more money hiring a Wedding Planner!

But, are you sure that it is one more expense? Because if you think about it, a Wedding Planner can give you many advantages when planning your wedding. And especially if you are out of Spain!

First of all a Wedding Planner that works in the location where you want to get married, knows perfectly the market, the vendors and the costs of each service. She can advise you to get the best prices.

Another advantage is that she will be present in each phase of the organization and she will be able to solve in situ every question or unforeseen situation that may arise.

This does not mean that the Wedding Planner excludes you from each phase of the planning of your wedding! On the contrary, you will make every decision and you will be in touch with your Wedding Planner forever to participate in all preparations.

Once you hire your Wedding Planner, you will start planning your big day together.

 SOME TIPS FOR PLANNING A PERFECT WEDDING IN SPAIN

I want to give you some tips so that you have them in mind when planning your wedding in this beautiful country.

  • When choosing the venue for your wedding, in case of symbolic ceremony, it would be better to find a venue where make the entire event: ceremony, banquet and also accomodation for at least part of the guests (depending on the number of guests, you can find venues that you can rent entirely for you). In this way the development of the event will be easier for all and without any transfer that means additional costs as for example the bus rental.
  • A very important detail when it is about a destination wedding, it’s to plan some extra activity for your guests in the days before your wedding. Visit the city, a Tapas route, an excursion in nature, etc. There are thousands of ideas for all ages and tastes!
  • Don’t forget to organize a welcome party for your guests! It would be ideal to prepare a barbecue in the gardens of the rented venue, or a big paella to welcome the family and friends and get together in an informal party before the big day arrives!

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.

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.
