Chalk board delight!

Wednesday, 11 March 2015 00:00

Chalk boards are set to be huge for 2015 and are a fantastic way of adding a personal touch to your Big Day in a simple inexpensive manner. Here we look at five ways you can harness this trend for your wedding day. These work especially well here in Spain to tie in to a more informal, outdoor theme or can add a more artisan touch to a formal wedding. Ask us if you’d like to rent a chalk board (or two!) and send us your own ideas too as we’d love to see more ways you can use these brilliant wedding props!

Adding additional sparkle to your Sunny Spanish Wedding!

Friday, 19 December 2014 00:00

As you plan your wedding the big things like booking a band and deciding on a menu can loom large. Obviously these are big decisions and like other major considerations for your Wedding day, should not be taken lightly. Like the babbles on the Christmas tree however it is sometimes the little touches at a wedding which make all the difference. These do not need to be expensive or time consuming but simple things which will make your guests smile and elevate the day from a fun one to a truly memorable occasion. See our ideas below for some of the things which can really add even more magic to your wedding day here in Spain!

Delivery of a gift for your intended on the morning of the wedding. Yes it’s pretty clear by the morning of the wedding that you are marrying the one you love. In the excitement of the last few days before the Big Day however it can actually be hard to spend “alone time” with your other half. A little gift or note that can be delivered to the hotel/apartment where your future husband/wife is getting ready shows the intimacy you share and that you have thought of them, and them alone amid a day of friends, family and celebration. Check with your wedding planner for gifts which work well in Spain.

Photobooth props. These are a selection of silly hats, wigs and glasses and a photo frame. Guests can use them to take fun photos on their cameras or phones to send to you after the wedding. Simple maybe, but as the night continues and the booze flows this is just a brilliant memento of your family and friends who shared your day with you. Ask your wedding planner about renting these from us for your day!

Welcome chalk board at the entrance to the dining area. A message of Welcome and thank you to your guests for sharing the day with you is always appreciated. A simple blackboard can be used and you can write your own personal message that friends and family will appreciate. The Chalk board can also be used later on for messages from family and friends and in conjunction with the Photobooth too! Again ask your planner about renting this.

Spanish fans. The chances are you have chosen Spain partly for a wedding with sunshine. The heat can be unexpected for some guests however so keep everyone cool and give them a keepsake of Spain with a Spanish fan. These come in almost any colour and a range of prices depending on the quality and style you want. Perfect to hand out before the service and great for photos too!

Matching socks (or ties) for the groom and groomsmen. The male members of the wedding party can often feel a bit neglected when it comes to wedding outfits. In addition they may not know you have a prefered colour scheme or theme for your wedding day. Get them on board and co-ordinated by picking out matching ties or socks and ensure they look the part too!
