Numerous property programmes on television show people searching for the perfect house. Different family set ups and desires result in those on the shows choosing very different houses and there are often difficult choices to be made. When you start trying to find the perfect wedding location it can be just as hard. You need to combine your dreams with your budget and the type of wedding you are planning. Southern Spain has an incredible climate and some incredible venues - but which is right for you? In this week's blog we look at the pros and cons of different types of venues:

Private Villa/Spanish Hacienda - If you want a larger degree of autonomy and freedom with the decoration and timing of your wedding day then a private villa can be an ideal choice. This type of property can be rented out for one or several days and you can use the house and grounds (owner regulations permitting) to create the wedding day of your dreams. Catering is more likely to be done by a private catering team, so while this can be more expensive than a hotel or restaurant, you have a great deal of flexibility with your menu and presentation.

 

Hotel/Boutique hotel - if you want to keep things simple then a hotel wedding can be perfect. On-site accommodation, set wedding menus, an area or areas dedicated to weddings and experienced staff make hotels one of the most popular choices for Spanish weddings. Special deals are often offered on accommodation for you and your guests if you book your wedding at the hotel along with items such as centres, menus and seating plans.

 

Restaurant - if the wedding day food is super important to you, you want a central location and are not too worried about the decor then a restaurant can be ideal. Restaurants have the advantage of great, accessible locations ie: next to a beach, or in the centre of town and menus are usually varied and fairly inexpensive as food is of course what they specialise in. If you are looking for a venue which you can decorate on a grand scale for your wedding day however then do check carefully what is and is not permitted. Also important to note is that due to their central locations most restaurants will have specific times when outdoor music must finish and after that you will need to move to an indoor nightclub or function room.

Do note however that these are just guidelines. Each venue has its own advantages and specialties so if you want to find out more about any of them just get in touch!
