Why a Destination Wedding Planner is right for you

Let’s face it, since the proposal all you have been able to think about is the wedding. You’ve definitely thought about a wedding in a wonderful location like a beach in sun. Who can blame you? A romantic wedding in a faraway location is the stuff dreams are made of, but just how do you turn that dream into a reality? Going it alone can be a really complicated and stressful task. A wedding is hard enough to plan, let alone a destination wedding! How are you going to pick the perfect venue, get the best food your money can buy and create the day of your dreams when you don’t know anything about the location? In comes the destination wedding planner. Not just experts in wedding planning, but experts in the destination. It won’t just save you the stress, it will save you money and time too. Destination Weddings will put you in touch with a specialist with invaluable knowledge of your dream location and put all the pieces together for you. Now just why should you choose a destination wedding planner? Here are our top 5 reasons.

Local knoweledge

A destination wedding planner is what links you with the destination of your dreams. They will be able to advise you on the best venues for each part of the day and recommend vendors they know and trust to ensure your day lives up to all your expectations. You won’t waste any time looking down dead ends, your destination wedding planner will have a list of recommendations ready for you.

It can be the smart financial choice, remember they have all the local connections

The sad truth is that unfortunately, vendors in destinations will often set their prices higher if they think you don’t have any knowledge of the area. You will not be able to know if they are giving you a fair deal or not. A destination wedding planner knows how much what you’re looking for should cost and won’t let someone take advantage of you. They will also have good relationships with their recommended vendors and may be able to use the connections to benefit you! You can rest easy knowing your flowers, cake, photos are all being taken care of by someone your planner knows and trusts, at a fair price.  Don’t forget about programs within planning services, such as Destination Wedding’s preferred partner program, which offers you the opportunity of spa treatments, private events, room upgrades and more.

They do the heavy lifting

Nothing about the research, booking or scheduling of a destination wedding is easy. When you start looking for a venue in a location you are unfamiliar with, it can be a very difficult task to even start looking in the right kind of places, or you might find yourself with too many choices and you won’t know what to do. Now add in a full-time job, a time difference and you’ve got yourself a real problem. Fortunately, your destination wedding planner will do all the research for you, and bring you a curated list of options, and then you can make a much better, well informed decision. When you’ve made your choices, they’ll make sure everything gets booked and scheduled exactly as you wanted.

Offering your guests travel advice

Your planner is not just your best friend, but they can be an incredibly useful tool for all of your guests too. There’s a pretty good chance that your guests won’t have visited the location before, and might know absolutely nothing about the area, and will need guidance on hotels, travel, places to eat and things to do before they travel. Your destination wedding planner will give you recommendations on where best for them to stay, great restaurants and the perfect local activities. When booking for a large number of people, try using a booking service like HotelPlanner.com, where you can reserve a large number of rooms at a lower price.

They’ll make sure you stick to your budget

Setting a budget can be difficult to begin with, so your planner will help you decide what budget you need to get the day of your dreams. From there, they will work with you, making any adjustments necessary to make sure your wedding is everything you dreamt, and it stays below budget.

Remember, destination wedding planners understand the stresses and strains of trying to plan a destination wedding, it is their job after all! They will make the experience as simple and relaxing as it possibly can be for you, your partner and all your guests. Always stay in touch, and you’ll sleep well knowing someone trustworthy is taking care of your dreams. It will all make the day an all-round better experience, which will live long in your memory.

What Type of Wedding Planner Do You Need

Welcome to busy world of wedding planners. There are many options available when choosing a wedding planner, but the best place to start is by making a list of everything you expect from your planner. From there, you can begin researching and crossing everything off your list. Remember that all planners are different, some are focused only on the design of the day, others will be more arranging and scheduling the day rather than designing it, so make sure you find one that offers the services you’re looking for. When you have a few potential planners in mind, arrange meetings and go through each point in a bit more detail so you are sure that your planner take care of everything you expect them to.

Here we will explain some of the options you might find during your research. Planners won’t always use these exact terms to describe themselves, but it should offer a good place to start from.

Full-Service Planner

The all in one package. The full-service planner takes care of everything from start to finish. They will arrange all the vendors, ensure all your guests are catered for and will take responsibility for the design of the wedding. If you are looking for a lot of help and guidance in planning your wedding, or if you have a complicated concept that you want bringing to life then this is the best option for you.

Event-Designer

The event designer is oriented towards the aesthetic of a wedding rather than the logistical side, meaning they will provide all the creativity to create your dream day, just don’t expect them to organise the timing or budgeting of your day. They may well work with vendors to help in creating your vision, and take care of flower arrangements for example, but they won’t organise other details for you. The designer isn’t essential. You can use a combination of florists and your venue manager to help create your vision, or a “floral designer” who specialises in creating an overall concept for the wedding, not just bouquets and centrepieces. Couples usually turn to event-designers as creating a unique and amazing experience can be very difficult and stressful without some help. If you are comfortable coordinating but would like help creating the design of the day, then this is the best option for you.

À La Carte Planner

The À La Carte Planner is perfect for a couple that want help creating a plan but want to organise the event themselves. You are able to ask them questions and get suggestions, recommendations for vendors, advice and help with particular issues you are having. It is up to you when you contact the planner, and they charge a flat fee for each service or an hourly rate for their assistance.

Day-of Coordinator

The day-of coordinator is best for couples who want to plan their own wedding but want to be able to relax in the build up and the day of. They will usually begin their involvement about a month before the event, just to ensure everything is running smoothly. On the day, they will take care of all of the setup and organisation, and cleaning or any other important tasks after the wedding. This lets you and your family enjoy the day without the worry and stress of managing the day.

Olga and Sergey’s wedding in Malaga

The adorable couple, Olga and Sergey, decided to celebrate an intimate and romantic wedding in Malaga, and we worked hard to ensure that it couldn’t have been more beautiful. This Belorussian couple have known each other since they were children, when they met playing in the park together. Later on they got separated by life, but on one great day they were reunited, to never separate again.

This beautiful wedding took place in a spa in Malaga, a spectacular place by the beach with incredible views. Before we discuss the details of the ceremony, let’s go back to the beginning of the day, when the bride and groom got ready in a luxurious hotel in Malaga. Olga got dressed, did her hair and put on her makeup in a fairytale room, while enjoying her last moments as a single woman. Her dress was an authentic work of art, it was sleeveless and made of a wonderful fabric. She opted for a midi-dress with a delicate white adornment, letting her blonde hair flow with waves and finishing the look with some big earrings. She chose to wear a veil to add a touch of tradition. As for her makeup, she opted for nude lips and statement eyes.

The happy couple were able to take some photos in the hotel, whilst they relaxed before the ceremony. Sergey chose beige trousers and a white shirt, perfect for a beach wedding.

The ceremony decorations were absolutely spectacular. The centre of attention was the circular floral structure with lots of pastel and green coloured flowers.

Next to the altar was a table with a beautiful cake with pink tones, which the couple enjoyed alongside two glasses of champagne after the couple said ‘Yes, I do’.

The rest of the photos from this wedding in Malaga were taken in the surroundings of this venue in the spa, a totally magical area. We’ll leave them with you!

A Wedding in the Elegant Palace of Aldovea

The Palace of Aldovea is one of the most spectacular places to celebrate a wedding in Spain because it’s a classic and it’s full of history. In this article, we’re going to show you one of the projects we’re working on this season, which we hope will inspire those of you who are planning a wedding for next year.

For this wedding in the Palace of Aldovea, the bride wore a Jesús Peiró dress, a brand which is celebrating its 30th anniversary in bridal fashion in 2018. Everyone thought the bride looked beautiful in her chosen design, which was made with an incredible lace. Her loose, wavy hair gave her look an added touch of elegance. Despite the palace’s traditional style, the couple did not have to follow the trend with traditional accessories. This bride broke traditions with a larger than usual bouquet, made up of wild flowers and plants in white and green tones, and touches of fruit such as apples, which brought life, freshness and originality to the bouquet!

The groom opted for a simple and classic dark blue suit with a plain white shirt; an ideal outfit for this special moment.

For the ceremony, the choice of bow was determined by the bride’s bouquet. It featured an irregular arch formed by flowers and fresh plants that brought an element of simplicity and harmony to the room. The beautiful castle, the bride and groom, and the decoration all blended perfectly.

This palace is a very special place for any couple to feel comfortably enclosed in their own walls and gardens. Celebrating a wedding in the Palace of Aldovea goes hand in hand with success, thanks to its unique space which allows for beautiful decoration, personal essence and corners full of magic. From the interior and exterior courtyards, to the bride’s room, as well as the numerous spacious rooms…we have no doubt that you’ll feel like a princess here!

20 questions to ask your wedding venue

Now you’ve picked out your ideal wedding venue, there are some questions you could consider asking to make sure that the venue will definitely be right for your big day. To help you, we’ve put together 20 questions you should consider asking your wedding venue before you commit to having your wedding there – let’s begin.

Wedding in Catalonia
Photography: Olya Kobruseva / Wedding Planner: Natalia Ortiz
20 questions
1. Is the date I want to get married available?

Venues can get booked up very far in advance, especially on Fridays or weekends, and if you have a specific date in mind (a date that is special for you and your partner, perhaps) then the first question to ask your venue is whether or not this date is available for your special day.

2. Can I have my ceremony, banquet and reception here?

Using the same place for both the wedding ceremony and reception will not only save you money, but it will also be extremely convenient for you and your guests – you won’t have to think about transportation from location to location.

3. Can I accommodate my guests here?

The next thing to ask is whether or not your guests will be able to stay at the venue. This is important when considering logistics for your wedding.

4. Are there specific caterers here which you use?

Wedding venues occasionally work with their own caterers so you can ask to see a menu proposal to make sure that you’re happy with the catering options at the venue. Alternatively, you could ask to choose your own caterers for the big day.

5. Can we taste the menu beforehand?

You may want to make sure you like the food they will serve and are happy with the quality of it before your special day.

6. What is the time-frame in which we can have the venue for?

Some venues have limits on how long you can have the wedding and reception for, so it is important to check if there is a certain finishing time they abide by so you can know how long to hire a DJ or other entertainment for, for example.

7. Are there any other events occurring on the same day?

It’s always favourable if yours is the only event at the venue on the day, but it is a common occurrence to have more than one event on the same day – still, don’t let this put you off, the venue will ensure the day is your own no matter what other circumstances occur!

8. How many guests can the ceremony and banquet room accommodate?

Often you will have less guests for your ceremony and wedding meal, then more for the evening. However if you plan to have many guests for the ceremony and meal you must ensure that they can all be accommodated.

9. Is there disabled guest access?

Another question to consider is whether or not all your guests will have easy access to the venue – do they have accessible entrances for guests in wheelchairs, for example?

10. Can I hold some parts of my wedding outdoors?

If you are celebrating it in a country such as Spain with a good climate all year round, the weather is likely to be nice. Therefore it could be worth asking if there is outdoor space you can use to make the most of the weather.

11. Do you have wedding packages?

Wedding packages are always advantageous and can save you money. So, it is a good idea to ask the question of if they have packages and what is included in them.

12. Can I see a room layout?

A room layout will help you to plan what you can fit in the space and where you can seat your guests.

13. Are there limits to what decorations I use?

Occasionally venues put certain limits in place regarding decorations. For example some may not allow the use of lit candles due to fire hazards.

14. Do you provide all the utensils, tables and chairs for the banquet?

Knowing this in advance is important so you can organise table, chair and utensil rent if the venue doesn’t provide their own.

15. When can we start the set-up?

To plan the timings of your wedding day, you should ask what time you can begin setting up for your day. You could even ask if you could start the day before.

16. Does your reception room allow for entertainment?

You should ensure that your wedding venue can accommodate the entertainment you wish to have at your reception. This could be a live band or DJ, and ask what time they can set up.

17. Do you have an alcohol licence?

Most venues will be permitted to sell alcohol, however sometimes you may need to provide your own.

18. Is there a car park?

It is a good idea to check out if there is space for parking, as many guests will wish to arrive in their own cars.

19. What is your cancellation policy?

You should check out the venue’s cancellation policy. This will be of use in the event that something changes after you book your wedding venue, and you need to either change the venue or reschedule.

20. What would the total cost be?

Ensure that there will be no hidden fees and check whether this costs includes tax.

So here is a list of 20 questions to ask your wedding venue. At Weddings and Events by Natalia Ortiz we assure that your wedding venue will be everything you want it to be. Therefore if you want help planning your wedding, you can write to us at info@svadbavispanii.ru. We look forward to hearing from you!

Natalia and Alberto’s wedding in Marbella

Natalia and Alberto, a Russian-Spanish couple, contacted us a few months ago in order to plan their wedding in Marbella. We got to work, and the result couldn’t have been more perfect. In this article, we’ll give you all the details and share a few of the most special photographs from the big day.

The outdoor ceremony took place in a spectacular hotel in Marbella. The couple got ready in their separate rooms with their bridesmaids and groomsmen, cherishing the special moments before the couple said “Yes, I do”.  Natalia wore an amazing princess dress with suspenders and pronounced cleavage, and a flattering makeup look with red lips as the main feature. In fact, red was the main colour of the wedding: the bridesmaids wore pretty red dresses, and the groomsmen wore red ties. Meanwhile, Alberto wore an elegant blue suit with a white shirt. They were a picture of elegance!

The ceremony was flooded with white, with a beautiful altar decorated with flowers and a large carpet in the hallway. After getting married, both the couple and the guests threw white balloons in the air, which made for some fantastic photographs.

Afterwards, everyone enjoyed an outdoor wedding banquet, thanks to the ideal weather conditions in this exclusive region of Andalucia. So that she could dance easily, Natalia changed into a short and very comfortable dress…now she was ready to enjoy the whole night!

We will leave you with the marvellous photographs of this adorable couple and their wedding in Marbella. Thanks for having faith in us!

Wedding coordination service

Wedding day coordination is one of the most important parts to make your Big Day a success. Our wedding planning services include wedding day coordination. Because of this, you can be sure that your planning and coordination will go hand in hand for a perfect day.

Why are wedding coordinators important?

Wedding coordinators are a crucial part of your wedding because they take your stress away. With a wedding coordinator, you can forget last minute panicking because they make sure every detail of your day is perfect. You can simply relax and enjoy your wedding with your loved ones.

What do wedding coordinators do?

There are many parts to a wedding coordinator’s role. However, to summarise, wedding coordinators take care of every detail on your big day, from set-up to when your last guest is ready to go home. Here is a list:

  • They will set your wedding up. They’ll make sure your decorations are in the right place, and the same for the seats. When the time comes for the cocktail reception or banquet, they’ll set this up too.
  • They will ensure that your vendors are ready. They’ll call vendors such as your photographer, DJ and caterers to make sure they’re on their way.
  • They will be the go-to person to answer questions which your guests may have.
  • Your coordinator will inform your photographer of when important moments are about to happen. For example, they will tell the photographer when the cake will be cut, or first dance is about to happen so they can capture the most important moments.
  • Finally, they can ensure that your guests are looked after and are behaving well at your reception. Sometimes guests can get carried away if they’ve had a few to drink, so having someone control them can be very helpful.

The role of a wedding coordinator is limitless as every wedding is different, but these are the main points. Wedding coordinators are trained to adapt to all kinds of wedding, and they are ready for anything.

How much does a wedding coordinator cost?

This depends on how many wedding coordinators you need. We suggest 1 coordinator per 25 guests to make sure there are enough coordinators for your day to be smooth. Certain coordinators will look after certain groups of guests, such as the bridesmaids and groomsmen, the couple, and the vendors. The price also depends on the location of your wedding if your coordinator doesn’t work for the venue.

Wedding coordinators are undoubtedly crucial for your Big Day. This service comes as part of our wedding planning service, so you can contact us at info@svadbavispanii.ru to team up with us. We look forward to coordinating your wedding!

Why have a small wedding?

Nowadays, more people opt for a destination wedding in Spain and, as a result, small, intimate weddings are becoming more common. In this article, we go through all the most important advantages of having a small wedding in Spain.

Costs

Firstly, by having less guests, you have the opportunity to spend more money on the decoration and entertainment areas of your wedding. As a result, your day can be exactly as it is in your dreams. This in turn will make your wedding more memorable for your guests, as well as yourselves, as you can have a small, more luxurious wedding for the price of a basic wedding with hundreds of guests.

More personal

Small destination weddings offer a more personal experience for both the couple and the guests. You will be celebrating only with your nearest and dearest, and you will not have to feel obliged to invite people you are not as close to. Additionally, you can spend more time with each of your guests which makes their time more enjoyable too.

Choice

For small destination weddings you have a lot more options for venue and accommodation at your disposal. Additionally, it will be a lot easier to accommodate your guests all in the same place. Moreover, you can often accommodate at the same place as the reception. This is generally the preferred option as it cuts down the need for extra transportation.

More days to celebrate

If you opt for a small wedding in Spain, you will tend to spend a long weekend there, or even a week! This will mean that you can spend quality time with your closest friends and family. More over, doing unforgettable activities to make your wedding even more special.

10 wedding transport ideas

Transport is a very important feature of any wedding, and traditionally the most common choice was of course classic wedding cars. However nowadays there are plenty of options of transport for weddings, so if you’re currently thinking about transport for your wedding this article is a must-read as we have put together the 10 best wedding transport ideas!

1. Classic car

Let’s start with a traditional mode of wedding transport. Classic cars have always been a popular choice for weddings, and if you love the beauty of classic cars this option is perfect for you. There is a whole host of models to choose, and it is popular to decorate the car with ribbons to transform it into a wedding car.

2. Limousine

Limos are linked to luxury and glamour, so if your wedding is going to be luxurious and glamorous, why not travel by limo? Additionally, from a more practical point of view, if the bride has a large, princess-style wedding dress a limo could be a more comfortable choice since the dress will be able to fit more easily in a limo!

3. Super luxurious car

If travelling in a supercar is your dream, why not use the opportunity of your wedding to make this dream happen? Imagine being transported from your wedding to the reception in a chic red Ferrari with the roof down with the Spanish sun beaming down on you – perfect.

4. Moped or motorbike

If you are a king or queen of speed and enjoy being in the open air, a moped (such as a classic vespa) or motorbike (Harley Davidsons always look cool) could be the option for you. It’s certainly a unique choice and would definitely be unforgettable.

5. Horse and carriage

On the opposite end of the spectrum to motorbikes lies the elegant option of a horse and carriage. With Spain’s beautiful, sunny climate, a horse and carriage is a very feasible option. This method of transport will make you feel like a king or queen on your wedding day.

6. Donkey

If you are marrying in Catalonia, why not use the cultural Catalan symbol of the donkey? As well as being sweet animals, donkeys have also provided a reliable method of transport for thousands of years.

7. In the air!

To make an unforgettable entrance, you could arrive at your wedding in a helicopter or even by a small private plane. Imagine rolling out the red carpet from a helicopter to walk down the aisle! You’d feel like royalty.

8. Hot air balloon

Again arriving from the sky, if you are a thrill seeker you could choose a hot air balloon to take in all the views of sunny Spain whilst arriving at your special ceremony.

9. Boat

Spain is surrounded by beautiful coastline, and so a popular choice of wedding venue in Spain is the beach. If you are a couple who will celebrate your wedding on a beach, why not consider a boat for your method of transport? It would be both practical as you’re by the sea and unique!

10. Good old-fashioned walking

If you are looking to have a simplistic wedding and are not all about fancy transport, walking could be for you. Just ensure that you’re not having to walk too far to arrive at your wedding as we don’t want you to be tired! Also consider what shoes you’d wear – there’s nothing worse than aching feet, especially when you’ll be doing your all-important first dance in a matter of hours!
