If you are planning to get married in a Spanish style wedding, you have plenty of ideas on how you can plan for it. While it may not be as traditional as a European wedding, there are some things that you can do to make your wedding in Spanish style unique and memorable. All you need is some creative planning.
First of all, don’t be afraid to plan well ahead. If you have a few months before the wedding to organize everything, you will save a lot of stress and make the entire event easier to manage. You may find it useful to talk with your friends or relatives who live in the same neighborhood or town so that they can also help you out. The more people you have involved in the planning, the better chance you have of getting things done smoothly.
Once you have selected the date, you have to think about the venue. You can hold the wedding at home, hotels, and cottages, or any place that you want to spend your time while still being in budget. You may choose to have a small reception during lunch or dinner. It is up to you how formal you want the wedding to be. Just remember that it is an important day for both of you so make sure that you don’t forget anything important.
Decide what kind of wedding attire you want for the event. Some brides opt for something traditional like a church wedding, but if you don’t want to go this way, why not consider a Spanish style wedding gown? There are so many beautiful options out there. If you want something conservative, why not choose a marina wedding? This is one way to have fun without having any “formality”.
The decorations will vary depending on the type of wedding you want. If you want a more formal affair, perhaps with a Spanish Arch, flower crowns, and handcrafted crosses, there are plenty of these types of items at local stores. There are also beautiful centerpieces you can have made that use flowers and candles. All of these will help set the tone for your wedding day.
When choosing music for your Spanish wedding, don’t be afraid to ask your guests to help you out. A lot of people just want to hum along to the music, but if you want something more original, maybe you could hire a musician. Just make sure that they have experience playing in this type of setting. Also, make sure that they are familiar with wedding customs such as when to ring the bell. Spanish is different than the American version, so make sure that your musicians understand the ceremony and can be adapted to the language.
One of the most important aspects of a Spanish wedding is the food. You definitely want to make sure that whatever catering service you hire specializes in Spanish dishes. There is nothing worse than eating some traditional food at a wedding reception that is obviously not Spanish! Be sure that you ask the caterer to do a few Spanish phrases on the menu so that you can ask for your favorite dish instead of just ordering something off the menu. If you get good service from your caterer, they should know what traditional foods are best for your guests.
If you have been invited to a Spanish style wedding, then you will surely want to dress up for it. A lot of people wear traditional clothes, but if you really want to stand out, you can rent some clothes for your reception from your local rental store. There are so many beautiful dresses that are available that you can choose one to go with a traditional look or one that is more modern. Make sure that you ask your wedding party what they would like for their attire. They can either choose something traditional for your wedding party or something more unique and modern. Either way, you can’t go wrong when it comes to your Spanish style wedding invitations.
