Many of my couples really don’t know where to start when planning a destination wedding. Information online can make it seem daunting and off putting, but please don’t be put off.
Planning a destination wedding is actually easier than planning a wedding at home as long as you have a local wedding planner who will guide you through each step, advise on budget, recommend venues based on your requirements, negotiate with, recommend and coordinate suppliers, manage logistics and give you advice & guidance ensuring that you are relaxed and can enjoy the fun parts of planning your destination wedding.
A good planner will take the burden and responsibility of trying to plan a wedding in another country. In fact most of my couples do not come and view their wedding venue before booking their wedding, they trust my advice, do their own research online and feel comfortable that they have booked a beautiful venue for their special day.
So what are the first steps when planning? You need to have an idea of guest numbers, time of year, style of wedding/venue, also a rough idea of budget. Then we talk about venues that are appropriate. Usually I give you info, photos, videos and an idea of price, then it’s up to you to decide if you have fallen in love with any of them. Of course if you want to come out and view venues, that’s great, but if not there is so much info online that you can get such a good vision and feel of a venue. Before you book a venue you will receive a Wedding Proposal for each venue documenting the exact costs of your wedding day so you know exactly what you are getting and how much it costs, and when the payments are due. So you are completely informed before booking your wedding.
So lets give you an example cost for a wedding day, a budget of around €5,800 for 30 guests, €8,200 for 60 guests or €11,800 for 90 guests would give you; exclusive use with a beautiful seafront wedding ceremony complete with floral altar arch, flower decorations, a stunning sea view meal of 3 quality courses and drinks, wedding photographer, bridal bouquet, button hole, celebrant and a wedding planner to plan, design & coordinate your day and be on hand for advice and guidance.
So hopefully this has given you an idea of how to get started and what weddings cost here in Spain. If you want to find out more, then please feel free to get in touch!
