We had been together for three years before I popped the question. Though the time was ripe for marriage, neither my wife nor I had put much weight into this question. A little teaser, we had our wedding in Spain.
Like many modern couples, we were already living together, and had been for some time. So, we were simply going on with our daily lives, almost feeling like a married couple already. But even still, that idea of putting it on paper, was simmering somewhere on the back of my head. And as I later found out, also in my wife’s mind.
So, the day we celebrated our third-year anniversary, I took her out for dinner, to the place where we had our first date. I asked her to marry med and she said yes! Not long after that, the wedding planning started, or at least the brainstorming about how to go about it.
We had a lot of options on the table. Should we go for a church ceremony or for city hall? Where to have the celebration, and who to invite. One of the ideas that my wife came up with was to have the wedding in Spain.
At first, I thought this was an unrealistic idea. How was that ever going to work? Bringing all the guests there, etc. But the more we talked about it, the more it seemed like a fantastic idea. Of course I wanted to give my wife to-be, the wedding of her dreams, so we finally decided on having the wedding in Spain. My wife quickly powered through, and started to organize the details. We managed to get everything in place, even a professional wedding photographer in Spain.
For the destination we decided on Malaga, because of the many available venues, amazing beaches and not least, the easy access by plane, for us and our guests. We decided to keep the actual wedding rather small. Just the closest family and friends, in fact just 18 people in total. It was without a doubt the most memorable experience of my life, and I can only recommend all of you guys out there to do the same. Your wife will love it, and both of you can spend some days in the sun surrounded by the people you love. Of course you and your fiancé will know what the right choice for you is. But for us, having the wedding in Spain was definitely the right choice.
The city of Malaga is as beautiful and charming as you could possibly wish for.
Not to mention, that you have access to a beautiful beach, and amazing, local food and wine, to pamper your guests with. It’s also a lively place with lots of bars and nightlife, so can arrive some days early and have your stag party in these gorgeous surroundings.
I know we will cherish the memories from the wedding forever, and since we booked a professional wedding photographer in Spain, we can always look through all the photos from those special days.
