A To-Do list for the wedding day in Spain is so important to keep organised so that your day can go exactly to plan, with no hiccups! It is a good idea to make this to-do list in advance and try to get some things done a few days before the wedding. You can share this to-do list with other people, such as bridesmaids and groomsmen so that you have people to help you. If you have a wedding planner, they can take care of this to-do list for you so you can enjoy a stress-free wedding in Spain.
In this article we provide some examples of things you can include in your to-do list for the wedding day in Spain to help you when creating yours! Let’s begin!
Create a list of vendors with contact details
It is important that you have a list of all the vendors that you are using for your Spanish wedding. Vendors will likely include florists, venue manager, photographer (and videographer if you opted to have one), entertainers (e.g. DJ), transportation, catering staff and wedding ceremony officiator. Put their contact details next to them so you can call them on the day to make sure they’re ready. If you’re getting married in Spain and don’t speak Spanish, it is important that you have a communication plan, for example someone to help you translate, or simply ensure that your vendors can understand your language.
The most memorable and important part of the ceremony is the exchanging of rings. They are a symbol of your eternal partnership – don’t forget them!
Although Spain boasts predominantly good weather all year round, perhaps consider checking the weather forecast for your big day. This means that you can be prepared in the unlikely case that it rains.
Have the timeline for your wedding day
The timeline for your big day is very important so you know what’s happening when. If you are having a wedding coordinator make sure he/she has a copy. Also make sure that you, your partner, bridesmaids, and groomsmen know the timeline so you can all be ready. The wedding coordinator will ensure that your guests are in the right place at the right time.
Plan how long your bridal party needs to get ready
Having an idea of how long it will take everyone to get ready is important to ensure that the ceremony will not be delayed. It is always a good idea to have a trial hair and makeup styling for the bride and bridesmaids so you can plan timings. If you are marrying in Spain and you don’t live there, try to arrive at least a day early to allow for these trials.
Ensure you have the all the outfits ready and clean. Make sure you have the wedding dress and bridesmaid dresses where the bride and bridesmaids are getting ready, and the same for the suits for the groom and groomsmen.
Pack spare clothes!!!!
Don’t forget your overnight bag with everything you’ll need in it for the day(s) after your wedding! So make sure to put this on your to-do list for the wedding day in spain.
Say your thank yous
On your wedding day it is important that you ensure that your guests know that you appreciate them coming. A nice touch is to provide a small welcome gift for your guests. You can leave this either in their accommodation rooms, or on the banquet table at their seats. If you’re getting married in Spain, it is likely that some of your guests will have travelled. Therefore a nice idea for a welcome gift could simply be useful information about tourist activities in the area, with a Spanish themed souvenir.
