10 Reasons To Hire A Wedding Planner In Spain

When you start with the preparations for your wedding day  is when you start to be aware of the number of things you have to make ready. Organizing a wedding and making it perfect is not a simple task, it is such a special and unique occasion that it requires a lot of understanding and experience. 

That is why the Wedding Planners have arisen, people who are entirely dedicated to planning the wedding that any couple would want: before, during and after it. Before this profession was worthless, but with the passage of time to the present it has become an almost essential figure, since it guarantees us an immediate result by knowing how to organize, direct and control even the smallest detail while you only dedicate yourself to enjoy the preparations and this process with absolute peace of mind.

Surely you have many ideas in your mind of how you would like your wedding to be, or perhaps not, that is why having the services of a Wedding Planner is perfect. And now we tell you all reasons:

  1. Time is on your side

If you do not have much time to think about what you want, do not worry, the Wedding Planner will do all this for you, looking for the options that most closely suits your “dream day”. Moreover, you should not forget about: the photographer, decorations, etc. and in the most economical way and with the highest quality. The only thing you will have to prepare will be the list of guests and choose your wedding costumes, which of course, your planner will also help you.

  1. You dream about a special day which is different from the rest

This is where your taste, personality and character come into play, which will be reflected in your celebration. The organizer will be able to meet you to advise you and listen to your suggestions to make the event unique. Since a Wedding Planner, is constantly aware of the new trends that may arise and can propose you original ideas that you don’t even know exist. For example: photo booths, get to the altar in a parachute, get married in some ruins, beach or desert, have accessories for the party and guests … countless details that you may not have stopped to think about and that will surprise everyone.

  1. Do you want to get married in a different city?

More and more people are carrying out their wedding at a destination outside the city where they normally live and this can be complicated, so the wedding planner will contact your suppliers with you at your place: restaurants, spaces for the ceremony, etc. so that you do not have to travel or take the trouble to make calls with these providers.

  1. There is little time left for the wedding

Normally we usually start organizing the wedding at least one year in advance, but sometimes it is leaving and we show up six months before the ceremony, so we have to hire the services of a Wedding Planner if we want all of this despite the little time left, this is a great decision. Although there is little time left for the big day it is better to have this help as it will be the most suitable person to recommend and advise you on the ideas you have in mind, as well as to plan all the tasks that have to be carried out for days, weeks or months, leaving the square calendar until the wedding.

  1. If you don’t know where to start

You have an image in your mind of what you want and how you want it but, do you know where to find the best and cheapest suppliers, or do not have an idea for the gifts, as well as for the details of the decorations? To have a Wedding Planner will be the best decision since it already has a great advantage and the experience of finding everything you need to set up quickly and easily.

  1. Take advantage of your budget

If you think that hiring an organizer will cost you a lot, you are wrong. The Wedding Planner will be able to adjust to your budget and will help you get all the services and products for your wedding in the most affordable way, sticking to your budget and without eliminating quality.

This will also ensure that the fixed payment deadlines are met and will manage and prioritize the resources without overtaking the established financial amount.

  1. If you don’t want to involve friends or family

When we organize the wedding by our own, we have a lot of things to do, so we decide to delegate many of our tasks to family members or friends which can cause small discussions, since it is always necessary that there is a person in charge of everything and, as set everything out.

Forget that your mother-in-law takes care of the flowers, or that your sisters control the catering or the musicians and that your mother takes care of hiring the musicians. The Wedding Planner will do all this for you, solving any inconvenience or setback, coordinating everything so that everyone only worries about relaxing.

  1. If you want to avoid conflicts

When organizing the wedding you could have a lot of disputes, since much of your time you will spend organizing the special day. This is where discussions arise about who puts more effort and who less among others.

This is normal since during this period the couple is usually stressed and very emotional. Therefore, the planner will take care of everything and the bride and groom only have to give their contentment or displeasure. 

Stay out of difficulty and stress, take care of your peace of mind by trusting the organizer fully.

  1. Don’t you know which providers to hire?

Photographers, flowers, decorations, clothing, banquet, menus, restaurant, cocktails, musicians, gifts … many suppliers are necessary for this day, so having a Wedding Planner you already have everything ready.

This requires a difficult network that will make you see the quality at a good price and knowing that these will not fail at the last minute. And importantly, this will search among different options to find the most economical price for you.

  1. Take care of any situation

The wedding day with your planner will be there making everything go as planned, coordinating guests, suppliers, etc. With your endless supervision and advice.

The Wedding Planner will also be there to solve and avoid difficulties, and that you only dedicate yourself to enjoy your day in the happiest and calmest way.

With passion and duty, the Wedding Planner will make you live your day in the most intense way, without forgetting any details that make the wedding special. Why worry if we can get our wedding to have a better result than we expected?

Get informed about legal procedures

If you are looking to get married in Spain, there are certain legal requirements that you must take into consideration: firstly, one of you must have been a resident of Spain for a minimum of 2 years, and secondly you must be over the age of 18 and unrelated. Are any legal documents required? Yes, here is a list:

  • Birth certificate, officially translated into Spanish by a translator who has been approved, and with an apostilla stamp
  • If it is not your first marriage, you need to provide either a divorce certificate or a certificate of death of your previous partner
  • Passports of bride and groom
  • Certificate of No Impediment to marriage
  • If you are marrying in a church, permission will need to be granted from the Bishop.

If you want to get married in Spain, but neither of you have lived in Spain for 2 years, consider Gibraltar! It has all of the advantages of Spain but without that requirement.

Please note that these documents are likely to require translation and allow plenty of time (2 months at an absolute minimum!) to organise the legal paperwork to ensure no last-minute panicking.

Learn about the accessibility of your chosen location

If you are getting married abroad and have family and close friends coming out to celebrate with you, it is a good idea to ensure in advance that the potential location of your wedding is easily accessible so that there will be no hiccups regarding transportation of guests on your special day.

Inform your guests about your wedding plans as soon as possible

A good idea when organising a destination wedding is to keep your guests in the loop as soon as you know dates and venue, so they can plan their time off work and, if not included, plan transportation and accommodation.

Make sure that they RSVP so that you know how many guests will be coming and how many to cater for – you don’t want to waste time or money!

A nice touch would be to include information about the area in which you’re getting married so they can plan things to do and see if they decide to make a holiday out of it!

Language

It is vital that no miscommunications between yourselves and the venue organisers and vendors occur so everything will be exactly how you want and expect on your wedding day, with no hidden surprises! If you are travelling abroad for your wedding and cannot confidently speak the language, plan how you will effectively communicate with the people behind the scenes of your wedding.
