Wedding date: August 23, 2011
My fiance and I were thinking about getting married in Spain (I am half Spanish) and have no idea where to start looking! We are getting lost in a sea of websites and need some guidance. We have looked at Mallorca, Ibiza, Grenada etc but my mum is from Madrid and doesn't like the ex-pat locations.
This is what we know we want:
Not necessarily a church wedding - more of a blessing preferably somewhere outside with a view of the sea
We want guests to be able to have the choice of staying in villas or hotels nearby (will need help organising this)
White roses for flowers, table settings, chair covers, fairy lights, candles, lanterns outside etc
Elegant and stylish table settings
Am a water sign so love the sea – so would like everyone to watch the sunset over the sea while eating
As I am half Spanish, I like the idea of flamenco dancers and fireworks
We both love Spanish music (a la gypsy kings) with a DJ/Disco afterwards
Photography definitely by stylish photography
Food and drink (cava, free bar, canapes and either a luxury spanish BBQ or Paella)
Currently 70 guests on the list
Budget is definitely no more than 10,000 euros
Definitely want a planner
ANY help on the above or more specifically whether we need to up our budget would be helpful.
