Wedding decorations are a big part of planning your day. With so many things to think about and what decorations you need where etc. So I thought I would do this blog to help you with some ideas.

When planning your wedding there are 3 areas of decorations you need to consider

1) Venue Decorations

2) Ceremony/Church Decorations

3) Table Decorations

To start off its deciding what colour scheme you would like to go for? Some people have a colour in mind as soon as they start planning others have no idea what to go with. This year we have a range of colours that are on trend, combining a few together they will create a real statement.

colours 2016

with also Copper, Rose Gold and Blush making a huge impact.

copper rose gold


So once you have decided on your colour scheme you can now start thinking about decorations :) questions you might need to ask yourself...

1) what type of decorations do you want - floral, candles, lanterns,mirrors,feathers,wood etc

2) Your Budget - maybe split that into the 3 sections - venue, ceremony and table

So lets get creative...

Venue Decorations - You can go with just something small for this for example just some fairly lighting to create a beautiful atmosphere or some hanging buntin or paper lanterns. Just these small little touches at your venue will transform it into the perfect wedding reception.

hanging 1hanging decs 9 lights hanging


Ceremony Decorations - Just adding a sash to the chair can make all the difference in creating the perfect look for your ceremony. However you can also add some flowers to the chair, of course your red carpet entrance and then maybe some decoration along the isle too. All create a real WOW factor.

Table Decorations - This is where you can really start to get creative and add your personality to your wedding. With some many ideas out there I fully understand why some people arent sure where to start. You can have floral centrepieces, lanterns, candles, vases, wishing trees, feathers to name a few all offering an amazing look for your wedding. And you can go as small and simple as you like or big and bold.

And then of course its then adding the other small touches to the tables - Table numbers, Favours, Menu and you might even take the opportunity of adding the guest book to each table.

Check out our pinterest boards for some FAB ideas for these little touches

Hope this has given you some ideas for your up and coming wedding

Happy Planning :) :)

wedding dress tips

Buying your wedding dress is a big part of all the wedding planning preparation and many brides cant wait to go shopping. But some dont know where to start, you can do your research on styles of dresses, designers and colours etc but its the small details that you dont always know until you go shopping. Having knowledge within the Bridal Industry they are many questions that all brides ask,  So I thought why not do a blog about all you need to know about buying your dress. Here are the common questions asked....

  1. Underskirts - do you have to wear one? Of course it firstly depends on your dress if you need an underskirt but if you can wear an underskirt with your dress I would recommend it, it helps keep the shape of your dress and it also helps you with walking, without an underskirt the dress hooks between your legs which will become VERY annoying as the day goes on
  2. Bras - Shall I wear one...... this comes down to preference some people wouldn't be comfortable not wearing a bra however most dresses will have built in support so you shouldn't need to wear a bra
  3. Alterations - costs will vary with each seamstress, tend to say allow 6-8 weeks before your wedding for your 1st appointment. Make sure you have your shoes you are going to be wearing and your underskirt
  4. Breathable bags - I would also recommend to buy one of these - I would say all bridal shops will sale them. These bags will protect your dress from everything.
  5. Destination Brides - You can either box up your wedding dress or store it in a breathable bag and if you let you airline/holiday agent know you should able to take this on as extra luggage - so you dont need to worry about finding space in your suitcase :)

I hope that helps you all and happy wedding dress shopping :) Enjoy every moment of it

Perfect Spanish Weddings have a wealth of experience in creating and designing these beautiful Ethnic Wedding Ceremonies

The “Aghd” which is the legal ceremony of the Persian wedding, is a spectacular and joyous event celebrated with family, friends, music and fun. The Aghd usually takes place in the afternoon at the bride’s family home or other venue of choice.  This is the time when the bride and groom sign a wedding contract, legally binding them as husband and wife. 

Traditionally, the Aghd ceremony, takes place by 
Sofreh Aghd, Persian and Iranian’s, which is an exquisite spread laid out on the floor containing many symbolic items:

The Blessed Bread, specially baked bread with calligraphy written on it. Persian feta cheese, and greens are also placed on the spread to symbolize the basic food that is needed to sustain life. Symbols of Fertility: Decorated eggs, almonds, walnuts and hazelnuts. The Heavenly Fruits: pomegranates, grapes, apples. Persian Rose: A cup of rose water and a rose extracted from the Gol-e Mohammadi (Mohammadan flower). This is to perfume the air. A bowl made out of rock candy, Honey - A cup of honey should be on the spread.

Wedding Planners are a great fit for professional couples who are too busy to handle the 250-plus hours it takes to plan an individual and unique wedding, or simply for couples who don’t count being organized as one of their better skills.

When planning a destination wedding, where documents, paperwork and legalities can be different to ‘home’ a local Wedding Planner, can be an essential guide. Any country where a wedding is held requires different procedures, depending on the nationality and faith of the marrying couple.

Veronique and Scott chose to celebrate their very special wedding day in Andalusia Spain at this most gorgeous Spanish countryside Cortijo...

Set in a huge country estate surrounded by avocado and mango trees – one of the few parts of Europe warm enough to be able to grow them. Huge banks of lavender, rosemary and agapanthas, and best of all a sea of hibiscus that leads you down to the alluring outdoor pool. The Cortijo gives off an aura of privilege, it is appropriate then that the owners are the Larios gin family, one of Malaga's grandest, whose land once stretched along the entire eastern Costa del Sol, from Nerja to Malaga. This is a recent project, with no expense spared on the quality of construction. The clever use of light and planting in the surrounding gardens is absolutely wonderful, a most beautiful backdrop for a very special wedding day. Perched on a small hill above the historic market town of Velez-Malaga (inland between Nerja and Malaga), the Cortijo has spectacular views of both the coast and the marvellously hilly Axarquia region. With its folds and difficult geology, it is easy to see why until relatively recently this was a lawless region, known for its bandits and rebels, who fought on after the Spanish Civil war against Franco into the late 1950s. The Cortijo hinges around its stunning central courtyard, an architectural triumph of light and balance. Reminiscent of the days of the Raj, in part due to its ferns and other foliage, it is inspirational and calming. There is seductive up-lighting where many candles add to the romance created and desired for your special wedding day in Spain.
