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!

2015 Spanish Wedding Trends

Tuesday, 03 February 2015 00:00


A New Year has begun and with the New Year, new trends and inspirations for weddings both in Spain and elsewhere. We count down the five trends and looks set to be big this season AND how you can work these into your own Spanish Wedding!

  • Vintage British
    With the continued success of Downtown Abbey vintage British continues to be popular with brides both in the States and elsewhere. The look is exemplified by a few elegant vintage pieces and especially suited to the more relaxed, al fresco dining which is much more popular and possible here in Spain. Vintage lace table cloths are available from online retailers such as Amazon while we have vintage lace sashes and centrepieces you can rent or even a vintage package to make things simple!

  • Unusual invitations
    Invitations are one of the places you can really let your personalities shine and not only make them relevant to your wedding theme and colours but also to the two of you. Personalised invitations including dried flowers, buttons, ribbons or personal items or photos are set to be popular and there are some great Wedding Stationary companies who will help you design unique invitations and give you ideas to help you along. Alternatively if you are creative you can design your own using tools such as Microsoft Word or Publisher.
  • Value added Engagement shoots
    Engagement photo shoots have been popular for a while and photographers usually offer these at a special price when you book them as part of your wedding day package. While popular for home weddings they really come into their own for Spanish brides, as an engagement shoot can be combined with a visit here to do the tasting adding value to the trip. This works out as even more of a saving if you then use the photos from the shoot to make your Save the Dates and Invitations even more personal with images from this. As an added bonus it also helps you get to know your photographer and get more from your wedding day photos too!
    See one of our successful engagement shoots here feature Emma and Chris who married in September 2014, with photographer, Pierre Richardson.

  • Memento moments for your guests
    For the family and friends who have come to Spain to be with you on your special day a Caricature artist who does portraits of the guests can be a brilliant way to give them an extra special memento of you wedding. This works best for small parties due to time constraints, but if you are a big group why not have a caricature of the two of you done in advance and have guests sign this instead of a Wedding day guest book? Simple and fun!
  • Pastel palettes
    For cakes, flowers and dresses the colours still exciting this year’s brides are the softer, more romantic ones – light blues, peaches, mint and even grey which is particularly big for Wedding cakes! Incorporate these into your Spanish Wedding with pastel chair ties, (ask your co-ordinator for a list of shades), and delicately shaded bouquets and centrepieces. They all go brilliantly with our white Chavari chairs and you can create a look that is entirely you own!
