The wedding receptions. Tradition or a big party?

More and more I receive requests from couples who dream of informal weddings and in a relaxed atmosphere.  Most of them come from abroad with the desire to have a wedding in the South of Spain, gathering friends and family at a big party.

A new concept that sees the wedding day as a meeting without much protocol and more relaxed.

So everything changes…Symbolic ceremonies in which emotions, laughter, readings of anecdotes of friends and family, and rituals that represent the union of love, predominate.

And also the banquets are revolutionized!

The traditional wedding that begins with a welcome drink, dinner and ends with dancing and open bar, makes way for a cocktail reception with appetizers and snacks, or a buffet with different food stations that also decorate the space with appetizing tables of cheese, fried fish, breads, and a long etcetera.

In this kind of weddings is very common the show cooking, so paellas, sushi, mexican food and much more, can be cooked at the moment and can be part of this environment more relaxed and with less formalities.

Informal weddings allow guests to interact with each other in a more familiar environment.

What kind of wedding receptions do you prefer? Do you prefer the traditional banquet or an informal party?

Tips for healthy hair and ready for the big day

When we set the date of the wedding, we always think of having long and healthy hair so that we can see more beautiful on our big day. This requires the help and advice of professionals who prepare the hair in the months before the wedding.

Among them today I present a great professional, friendly and always on trend with the hairstyle of brides and guests, who will leave us some tips to have healthy hair and ready for the big day.

I met Lola Cabezas at a destination wedding that I organized in a beautiful and pretty castle in a small village in the province of Jaén.

Her style is modern and at the same time elegant and always respecting the personality of her clients.

Lola tells us all the steps that need to be made so that the hair can be ready for the hairstyle of the big day.

 “To have a radiant hair with shine and a perfect color, you have to do a hydration treatment and a cutting of tips. To give more luminosity to the face, it is always advisable to put some reflections that help to soften the factions”.

“Dry and frizzy hair, need hydration treatment, and if it is dull a keratin treatment will give it life and luminosity again”.

As for the type of hairstyle for the day of the wedding, Lola always recommends previous trials to be able to choose the most appropriate, respecting the personality of the bride and always in harmony with the dress.

You can choose a fashionable updo but it is always advisable for the bride to feel comfortable. That’s why the previous contact with the professional is very important, so that he/she can perfectly capture the needs and tastes of his/her client.

THE DECORATION

Without a doubt, a Christmas decoration will give the magic touch to the wedding.

A big Christmas tree in some corner of the reception hall, will be a must.

All you need to know about bridesmaids

Have you ever thought of having bridesmaids for your wedding but you don’t know exactly how many they should be, how they should dress, and what roles they have?

Read on, because I tell you everything in this post!

WHAT ARE BRIDESMAIDS

The bridesmaids are a group of friends, cousins or sisters who are part of the bridal courtship. At the ceremony they make their entrance before the bride who will arrive accompanied by the best man.

The bride can choose how many bridesmaids will accompany her on her big day. There is no set number. The most important thing is to choose the people she considers closest and special to her.

WHAT ARE THE BRIDESMAIDS DUTIES

Bridesmaids can help the bride in choosing her dress, accompanied on the tests and advising.

They are also in charge of organizing the Bachelorette party, but the most important thing is that they will be accompanying the bride on her big day from the preparations to the end.

If there are several bridesmaids, it is always advisable to have one that takes care of coordinating the rest of the group.

During the ceremony they can help the bride to place the veil, and can also help to give the favours to the guests.

HOW SHOULD BRIDESMAIDS DRESS

The bride usually chooses the dresses of her bridesmaids, but always consulting with them so that they all feel comfortable with the chosen model and color.

It is not necessary that the model is the same for all of them. They can choose the same color and style, but each one will wear the dress cut that suits them best.

You can also give the bridesmaids general instructions to match the style of the wedding and the color palette used.

The same with the hairstyle: you can advise that all wear the hair up or loose, but each one choose the model that she likes.

 

But the most important thing is that you enjoy the time you will spend with your bridesmaids in the days before the wedding and also during the big day.
