Your Spain beach wedding

If you book your Spain beach wedding one year in advance, it leaves room for you to experiment with your wedding date. Why not get married during Mother’s Day in Spain on a beach? Not only will you give the perfect gift to your mum, but you will also get the perfect weather. May in Spain is a fabulous time to get married on the beach. You won’t need to research weather statistics or worry if it might rain on that special day in May. It will be sunny and warm, hot enough for you to wear your dress without a sweater. Moreover, not too hot that your beautiful wedding hairstyle might get ruined from the humidity. Weddings in Spain are just perfect in May, so you should choose Mother’s Day!


No worries. If you do decide to book your Spain beach wedding on Mother’s Day, the spotlight will still be on you and your fabulous dress. In fact, I think your mum will even be grateful that you choose Mother’s Day for your wedding in Spain. She will interpret it as a token of appreciation. This will give you an excuse to have to huge celebrations in one day. Let’s face it, our mums are worth celebrating and we should be thankful to have them around every day! Make sure you thank you mum this coming Mother’s Day for all her efforts and love over the years.

The Plan

Don’t talk about your surprise to anyone. You know how people talk and never actually can keep a secret. If you really want to surprise your mum on Mother’s Day, then shush! Only let your second half on this clever plan. Make sure you have a red envelope at home. This way, you can place your wedding invitation and sneakily fool anyone that you are sending a Mother’s Day card for your mum. The red colour won’t give away the contents of the envelope and your mum won’t expect a thing! Next, your should ask your local post office when you should send your envelope so it arrives precisely at the time you want. My best guess it roughly two to three days in advance. For some security, you can also put the envelope in the mailbox yourself.

Then all you have to do, is wait for the huge surprise. Will you do it? You think you’ve got the guts to pull this off?

We all look for the perfect flower decorations and the flower bouquet for our marvellous wedding. The never-ending question – which flowers should I use? If you are getting married abroad in Spain you shouldn’t be an exception to hold back on your flower dreams! Flowers are the perfect decoration to your dress and your Spanish wedding.

Many celebrities are fully aware of this fact. Beyoncé, for example, had an exclusive wedding in New York and she had over 100,000 orchids! Can you imagine how beautiful it must have been? They were all tailor made within a couple of days. The poor florist had teams of people assembling each orchid decoration manually. Only the best of the best for Beyoncé. The cost of course was undisclosed.

However, I think more planning is needed for getting married abroad in Spain.

The appropriate flower

The most popular and appropriate flower used for a wedding in Spain are carnations. Did you know that carnations are the national flower of Spain? Well they fit well if you are getting married abroad Spain. They will probably be cheaper than the usual roses, and you will have a wide range of colours you can select from. They are visually stunning and are beautiful when they fully bloom.

If you are a Sex and the City fan, you might remember the time when Charlotte told Carrie that pink carnations are according to her “eeew”. In fact, I remember when Jack Berger gave Carrie pink carnations the night before he dumped her. However, this is definitely not the case for your wedding in Spain. Carnations in Spain are said to symbolise passion and it’s no surprise that red carnations are the national flower. Hence, carnations are the perfect flower if you are getting married abroad Spain.

Common practices

You have probably seen many cartoons where people dance with a carnation gripped in between one’s teeth. Believe it or not, you might see this practice while you are in Spain with your family. It’s very common to hold the carnation flower between your teeth! Maybe not a great idea to grasp the carnations in your teeth while you walk down the aisle for your wedding in Spain. It might not send the right message to your guests arriving from the UK. They might not understand that this, in fact is a symbol of passion.
It is also said, that if you receive a bouquet of red carnations from a man, it means that he absolutely adores you. If you receive white carnations, it suggests that the man is still single and is looking to date you. These are of course traditions in some parts of Spain.

So, do your research on the meaning of flowers if you are getting married abroad in Spain. People take these things very seriously and selecting the wrong flower can ruin the vibe of your wedding.

Other suggestions

My best friend has recently chosen lavender as her wedding theme. Yes, you guessed right! Everything is also in the colour of lavender. What’s your favourite flower you’ve seen in weddings? I personally like king lilies, but they are so aromatic, it might be too much for some people. Leave a comment!
