Destination Weddings – The Guest List

White wedding invitation with red rose

Planning your wedding is incredibly joyful, but there is always one area that most couples struggle with and this is the guest list. It brings out the family politics in most families. Maybe your budget is tight or you just want to have people who are in your life daily there to celebrate with you, whatever your reasoning, there is always someone who objects to your choices; perhaps your Mother wants you to invite all of those aunts, uncles and cousins that you never see, or you want to invite one cousin because you get on really well with them but your other cousins will feel left out. It is always an area of wedding planning that is full of hurdles and logistics. So here are some tips to guide you through:

Remember when planning your destination wedding, quite often 80% of those invited will attend.  This of course depends on where the wedding is, how much it will cost them to travel, and if they can travel abroad at that time.

Before you accept financial help from your family, ensure that they understand your dreams and ideas for your wedding day, including guests. This way you won’t feel pressured by them to invite people they want at your wedding just because they are contributing to the cost.

If you have chosen your venue already, then ensure that you stick within the numbers quoted by the venue so that you are not over capacity, it would be a disaster to have to un-invite guests later, you would be better off inviting less now and adding more guests later.

So how do you decide who to invite? 

Well the first thing is to agree some rules, such as; no children, no distant family, no plus ones that you have never met, and so forth.  Once you have made these rules, stick to them.

Secondly make a big list of all of those that you would like to attend your wedding. Break this down into four categories: Category 1 – essential must have guests. Category 2 – Would really like to attend. Category 3 – could invite if we have the space after we receive the first lot of RSVP’s. Category 4 – Evening Only (this might not be appropriate of you are having a destination wedding, as it might be a big ask to invite someone to travel abroad for your wedding, only to find they cannot attend the ceremony).

Then with any luck categories 1 & 2 will fit within your limited guest number, if not you will need to remove some from Category 2 and put them into 3.

As always the important thing is to remember that this is your special day and you should plan it how you want to and have only those around you who you love.  Your guests will make your day more perfect, more memorable and more joyful, so enjoy this part of the planning as you imagine your special day with those you love.

Getting Married in Spain

Are you dreaming of a destination wedding and are thinking of getting married in Spain but want to know more about it?  Then please read on.

Spain is a beautiful part of Europe and offers a wide range of stunning venues ranging from sandy beaches to countryside villas and mountain retreats, as well as hotels in busy tourist areas or peaceful farmhouses.  There really is a stunning wedding venue to suit all styles and budgets as we have affordable venues through to the most luxurious venues.

With over 300 days of sunshine and so many blue sky days, you are almost guaranteed to have sunshine on your wedding day!

Having your wedding celebrations here is much more affordable than in the UK even when you take into account the flight and accommodation costs and of course drinking and eating out is much cheaper!

It is also much more affordable than places like the Caribbean as you can have the same all inclusive hotel package with a small fee for the wedding ceremony, and your guests are catered for by the all inclusive package within the hotel, so you don´t have to pay for food and drink packages for your guests, meaning more money in your pocket for those little extras.

Affordable short haul flights mean that your guests can fly out for a weekend rather than  having to have a week or two week holiday, meaning it is much more affordable and possible for your guests to join you, especially those with financial concerns, family and work commitments.

If you wanted to make your wedding day into a wedding weekend and make it extra special for everyone, we are able to organise other events for you all during your stay such as boat trips, spa visits, golfing days, wine tasting, hen and stag parties and group meals.

Here in the northern Costa Blanca many of your wedding suppliers are English and if not they speak superb English, so there is no language barrier.  All of the suppliers that I recommend to my couples are friendly, reputable, trustworthy and innovative suppliers ready to give you the wedding day of your dreams.

Depending on your requirements I can put together a bespoke wedding, a private villa wedding or you can choose one of our wedding packages.  Whichever route you chose your wedding will be personalised for you.  We know how important it is to make your wedding day unique and reflect your style and personalities, therefore unlike many wedding planners we  do not provide a one style wedding to suit everyone.

So if you are dreaming of getting married in Spain, then please get in touch with me to find out more about your perfect wedding here in the sun, or visit my homepage to see some of the stunning venues we have here in Spain.
