A colleague of mine was recently in Majorca, Spain. Lucky him! I was stuck at work behind the monitor. Urgh! Nevertheless, when he came back, he told me that Majorca was one of the best places that he’s ever visited! It got me thinking, why not have a destination wedding in Spain, Majorca?

Funnily enough, Majorca reminds me a little of Cyprus. I know it sounds luxurious and expensive, but it’s really not! In fact, many Germans have summer houses in Majorca. There are plenty of reasons why you should go for a destination wedding in Spain, Majorca.

Being on an island is sometimes the best

Great scenery and historical places! Imagine those wedding photos, capturing the beautiful coastal waters in the background. My point here is, that it’s not too crowded with tourists in some villages as other places in Spain such as Marbella or Malaga. In the end, a whole body of water separates the tourists from the natives. I‘d still recommend Majorca for a peaceful and tasteful destination wedding in Spain.

Great romance

It wouldn’t be a perfect destination wedding in Spain without having the perfect setting for romance. This is exactly what Majorca does! Small towns and charming European-like city centers will capture your hearts and get you in the I-do mood! The restaurants, the wine and the views will leave you breathless. Truly cozy and charming to share with your special someone.

The water is great

Not only does the water look great, it feels great too. Nice and warm. However, many people don’t even think to explore the beautiful waters of Majorca in more detail. It’s actually a fantastic place to snorkel and scuba-dive. I dare you to do an underwater wedding photoshoot. They’ve become very popular you know!

Prepare for your beach wedding in Spain!

As you know, Spain has lots of sunshine and is definitely warm enough to walk in shorts. I know exactly you are thinking! You’re probably thinking that a beach wedding in Spain presents the perfect opportunity to get that tan you’ve been waiting for all year. However, don’t be fooled! First of all, if you are having a beach wedding in Spain, there is no way you’ll get a tan just in a couple of days. You either need a spray tan in advance, or a longer vacation in the sun to get that glow before putting on that white dress. I’ll dig into the details below.

White on white

 

Let’s state the obvious. Imagine having a beach wedding in Spain, wearing a beautiful white dress. Do you think the reflected sun rays on that untanned skin will look nice in your pictures against the gorgeous white dress you’re wearing?

You need to prepare and get yourself a proper tan. You might look too pale in your photos, and trust me, it doesn’t look good. Besides, it takes time for us Brits to get a tan (without looking totally burned). There are a couple of ways you can prepare for this. However, there are also some precautions you should take as well.

 

Lesson #1 Pre-tan at least 2-3 weeks before

Now, I say this with much love, however, you need to pre-tan for your beach wedding in Spain. You should tan at least two to three weeks before your wedding day. Why do I say this? There are two very special reasons. The first being, if you tan only a couple of days before, you’ll overdo it and you’ll more than likely turn red. What happens after you turn red? You peel! Surely you don’t want to shed skin down the aisle at your beach wedding in Spain. I think that would even be worse than the skin burn. What do you think? Burn or falling dead skin? Yuck. I vote neither please! For this reason, it’s wise to pre-tan three weeks ahead.

Lesson #2 Spray tan is the easiest, but most trick!

Spray tans are very popular in Britain. Let’s be honest. I don’t know a single British girl who hasn’t put self-tanning lotion on, or tried a spray tan. Have you ever seen an epic fail on spray tanning? Oh, I have, and multiple times! First of all, if you go for a spray tan, make sure it’s at least a week before your wedding. I‘ve seen girls walk down the aisle, while it was really humid. What do you think happened? One girl had her spray tan only two days before her wedding, and it ended up all on her white wedding dress. It was really embarrassing!
The same thing happens with tanning lotion. It ends up directly on the dress. Plus, it melts of off your skin. People will really be able to tell that the tan is fake. Not good for a beach wedding in Spain.
Therefore, I encourage you, prepare in advance! The best thing is to take an extra vacation somewhere. The spray tans went out of style as soon as Trump became president! 😀
