Indeed, whether it is an Andalusian hacienda, a palace at the waterfront on the paradise island of Majorca or a starred restaurant in Barcelona, we support you in the search of your happiness and make your dream come true...
Best period to plan your wedding in Spain :
As destination wedding planners, we recommend to plan your wedding in Spain during the months of May, June, September, and October, when temperatures are very favorable. Moreover summers are often very hot and there are many tourists during the months of July and August which can be a hindrance to your desire for quiet and privacy.
As you’ve probably understood, for your wedding, off season is ideal.For total peace of mind and because Spain is popular as a destination for wedding with couples from around the world, we recommend to start your planning well 6 to 12 months before the wished wedding date.
The budget :
Spain is a member of the EU; the currency is Euro. Practical of course, and the first advantage is that it can even offer nice holiday combined with your dream wedding in Spain without breaking the bank, depending of course on what you want and dream, region, season and your desires.
Spain offers beautiful, luxurious and modern hotels, villas, restaurants, but also haciendas which are large typical Spanish farms or other places.
For accommodation budget, as everywhere all depends on when you book, the location and the season. More you do it in advance more likely you are to have the best prices. It is still interesting to know that in Spain the prices are quite affordable.
As you know now Spain attracts a lot for destination weddings. Your wedding in Barcelona, Madrid or one of their regions, will allow you to celebrate your big day in a beautiful setting but also to enjoy the Spanish culture and history side of the area. Besides, setting your wedding on a Balearic island would be most exotic and relaxing. Indeed, such a framework, the mix of different cultures and the breathtaking panoramic views, what could be better? Moreover, the Spaniards are also very familiar with destination weddings, and offer great rates to attract as many customers as possible.
But Spain also offers sumptuous locations and brimming with luxury for gorgeous and chic weddings.
