Wedding Favours are one of those things as you start making your list as to what you need to get for the table decorations you then can't decide whether you need to have them or if you “should”  have them.

The history of wedding favours started in France in the 16th Century, where they gave their guests "bonbonnieres" which were sugar coated Almonds or sweets, this was a thank you token but also the sweetness of the almonds which thought to symbolise a bittersweet marriage. As this tradition spread worldwide and become increasely popular, the trend grow and grow and today we use many other things as wedding favours to give to our guests.

So the question is are you having wedding favours?

and if so what are you thinking of having?

Do you stick with the traditional favours? sugared almonds

trad favour 1

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

or do you go with something different. There are so many different options for favours out there, its just finding the right one that fits with you whether its budget, edible, keepsakes or unique they will all look great.

Here are a few wedding favours I have found whilst searching the around. I hope they give you some inspiration and help you make that decision whether you want to have them or not!

favors 9 opt favour 2 opt favour 3 opt favour 4 opt
favour 6 opt favour 7 opt favour 8 opt favour 10 opt

I have also found favours that link in with your name placing, which I think its a great idea.

favour 12 opt favour 14 opt favour 5 opt 2

If you decide that wedding favours aren’t for you but feel that the table is missing something then you could put some wedding bubbles on there (great way of keeping kids ……… and some adults entertained) or maybe disposable cameras – if nothing else it gives you both a giggle looking at developed photos a few weeks later – cant beat random wedding photos.

Happy wedding planning

Are you thinking of having a smaller wedding? but trying to weigh up whether to do it or not? Many couple choose to have a small wedding with many reason behind it, it could be that you have just fallen in love with a venue and they are limited on guests numbers which means you can only have a smaller affair or maybe it comes down to your budget and that something smaller is all your budget will allow. 

Couples who decide to get married abroad tend to normally have a smaller wedding then what they would have had back home, but destination weddings are becoming very popular and after all who wouldnt want to get married on a beach or in a lovely private villa in SUNNY SPAIN!

small wedding

 

PROS:

Budget – When planning a wedding the budget is the first thing you need to set, weddings can cost a fortune and it is easy to think you have got everything on your list and then you forget something and then budget slowing increases. Some couples choose to have a small wedding because they have a smaller budget and there will be ample of choice when finding that perfect venue.

DIY wedding – When having a smaller wedding it does mean that you can get a bit more creative and do a lot of the planning and decorations yourself. This is a FAB way of getting as many people involved in your special day. It is always lovely to be able to do a DIY wedding, shopping for your decorations, then creating them exactly how you want them and seeing it all coming together on the day.

Offer better food and drinks – If you’re having a smaller guest list and your budget allows you, you can always then offer better quality food, this could be from just adding canapés as part of your welcome reception or having more expensive food for your sit-down meal. You could also add in a champagne reception, signature cocktails, gin bar and maybe an open bar giving your guests the opportunity to indulge. It is always nice to be able to have better quality food that your guests will be sure to enjoy if you can afford it.

More quality time with your guests – It can be hard on your wedding day to ensure that you have spoken to all your guests throughout the evening and this can mean that you spend most your wedding reception walking around, chatting to your guests briefly and then having to move onto your next guests and you and your partner may only cross paths throughout the evening. By having a smaller guest list it means that you can spend so much more quality time with them and enjoy their company.

Less stressful – Weddings are stressful we all know that! But if you can reduce your stress then take that opportunity, and by having a smaller wedding comes less stress and this can definitely take off some of the pressures of planning a wedding.

Adding little extras – Having a smaller wedding can mean that you can add some little extras to your wedding to make it exactly as you had dreamed of. There are many different little extras you can add to your day depending on what your budget allows you, you could add small favours for each guest that are more personal to them or add a box of dancing shoes (flip flops) so guests have no excuse not to dance the night away. If budget allows you could add a photo booth, this always goes down a treat at weddings. The little extras can make such a difference and will be sure to make it memorable.

CONS:

Upsetting family members – It can be very hard to keep everyone happy when it comes to planning a wedding, I am sure that at some point in the planning process someone in the family will not be happy about something. When it comes to planning a small wedding it may cause a bit of upset amongst the family as you will not be able to invite everyone, your relative that you haven’t seen in 10 years, I’m sure will not be too disappointed that they haven’t been invited, so please don’t worry and remember it is your day.

Can be more stress – Above we have said that it can be less stressful having a small wedding…. Which is true but, there can be stress with having a smaller wedding too and this to due to you will probably have to do everything yourself! It does all depend on what venue you have chosen as some smaller venues still do have an events team on-hand to help but if they don’t, then yes it’s all down to you and your partner to ensure that everything is booked, paid and you have ticked off everything from your wedding list.

Might have regret of keeping it small – Your wedding day is supposed to be perfect, exactly as you had always dreamed of so make sure that if you’re having a small wedding you’re having it for the right reasons. Don’t have any regrets down the line that you wished you had gone with a larger wedding because not everyone to could make it or that you didn’t include things that you may have wanted too.

Less of a “party” feel – If you are looking for a party feel to your wedding then a smaller wedding may not fully achieve this, with few guests it can end up being a bit more relaxed, and not get that full party atmosphere you may want. People wait for those first few guests to make their way to the dance floor then everyone joins in, but if there is only a small number of guests people might not want to make that first move which could result to no-one hitting the dance floor. Of course, if you are looking for a low –key wedding then this is something you will not worry about, however, if you want to strut yourself on the dance floor then a smaller wedding may not be exactly what you’re looking for.

 

As you can see there are plenty of advantages and disadvantages for a smaller wedding and it just takes time weighing it all up and deciding on what style and atmosphere you require for your wedding day. But remember it is YOUR day and that you both agree with what you want for the wedding day, as that is what is important and remember to stick with your decisions.

We work with many amazing wedding photographers that work their magic at creating wonderful and memorable photos for your special day. Today's guest blog is all about the very talented Pedro Bellido wedding photographer, we asked Pedro a couple of questions about himself and also his business to give you an insight into Pedro himself and his style of work. 

 

Pedro Bellido - Wedding Photographer 

 

pedro 21) A photo of your company team, bit about the company and your services in Spain
 
I’m a Spanish photographer based in Malaga, but have also worked in other parts of Spain and in other countries around the world for the past seven years. I wouldn’t consider myself to be your usual photographer, my style is fresh, contemporary and documentary. This unique take allows me to capture essential candid moments, 
special moments, in a more creative and memorable fashion. 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
2) How long have you been working along side Perfect Spanish Weddings? Your experience in working with them?
 
I’ve had the pleasure of working along side Perfect Spanish Weddings for approximately four years. Working with Paula and Moira has been exceptional, they are extremely professional, very organized and under control from start to finish, and it’s always an enjoyable experience. I hope to continue working with them for years to come!
 
3) What is your favourite wedding trend? and Why?
 
I’d have to say that my personal preference is small, intimate weddings with natural yet chic decore. In general, I like the atmosphere at weddings held at venues in the countryside where everyone can enjoy the beautiful Costa del sol weather, typical Andalusian dishes, and the company of their close family and friends in an intimate setting. 
 
4) If you could recommend a place to visit whilst in Spain to our couples where would it be and why?
 
Malaga, of course! You can find anything and everything from sunny beaches to small white villages in the mountains accompanied with the most delicious Andalusian dishes. In the city, there is lots of history of different cultures from different eras all intertwined throughout the center, which you can experience while exploring the gastronomy in trendy Andalusian bars and restaurants. It’s also a good base city in order to visit other nearby cities, such as Granada and Seville. What else could you ask for?!
 
5) What is your favourite Spanish Dish?
 
Espeto de Sardinas! This is the perfect dish for fish lovers. It’s literally sardines stacked on a stick and grilled in a mini sailboat. It’s best experienced at a chiringuito, your typical Malagueño restaurant right on the beach, with bare feet buried in the sand while looking out at the sea.
 
6) What does 2018 wedding season have in store for you?
 
2018 is looking bright so far. I have high expectations and am looking forward to meeting the couples who have put their trust in me to capture such a special day of their lives. I’m passionate about telling the story of my couples as seen through my camera and hope to share the special candid moments of these weddings in my photos.

3) what is your favourite wedding trend? and Why? 
I love the beach weddings, the colours or the sea and the sky with a sunset is to me the best of the best, also normally a beach wedding is very relaxed
and that atmosphere with candle lights the moon in the night is magical .
 
4) if you could recommend a place to visit whilst in Spain to our couples where would it be and why?
There are so many !! , The Alcazaba and Picasso Musseum in Malaga, Calle Larios as well with many Tapas bar, Marbella and Puerto Banus to know the night life, or Ronda one of the oldest towns in Andalucia, very recommendable, but i need a book to write all the places !!
 
5) What is your favourite Spanish Dish?
The food is one of the stronger points of Spain, a good Paella is mandatory, but must try also Fabada Asturiana, mmmm.......
depending of the place of spain there are differents foods, In Malaga the Star Dish is Pescaito frito, called boquerones.

Firstly Happy New Year to you all.

Did anyone get enaged over the Christmas break? Congratulations if you did, you have a very exciting time ahead of you.

More and more people are getting married abroad and you can see why. With the average cost of a UK wedding around £27k compared to a destination wedding costing around £7-8k there is a big difference. Figures show that 1 - 4 couples now decided to get married abroad.

But why else are people choosing to get married abroad.

1) The Weather

2) Less hassle with all the planning

3) Amazing locations

4) Great Photo opportunities

5) Honeymoon combined

6) More Intimate

to name a few.

Of course Costa Del Sol, Spain is one of the most popular destination to get married, with wonderful weather all your round, only a short flight from the UK so easy for guests to travel too, excellent value for money, great food and so many amazing venues to choose from - from beach to countryside.
