Have you ever been a bridesmaid? If you by any chance had the pleasure of being a bridesmaid, then you know that you played an important role during your best friend’s wedding. My best friend’s name is Anne and she had a gorgeous wedding in Spain. I consider myself truly luck to have been a part of it. I will now tell you how her wedding in Spain went down.

The party on the plane

Anne, me and the rest of the bridesmaids flew together for her wedding in Spain, Marbella. We caused quite the stir on the plane. No surprise there, we are British! Our flight attendants kept serving alcohol on the clock, and we had the time of our lives. I swear, time went by so fast, it felt like we took off and landed in no time at all. I must admit, we got Anne a bit tipsy. I think she finally realize she was heading to her wedding in Spain.

The arrival

We arrived in Marbella! It was sunny and it was hot! Everything that Britain was not. A shuttle picked us up, or rather I would call it a party bus.

Did you know that you can get one of those disco buses for your wedding in Spain?

We know how to have a good time. The shuttle drive us from the airport directly to the beach villa. As you might have guessed, this was a villa wedding in Spain. I don’t know what it is this year, but everyone is doing villa weddings.

The villa

The villa was stunning. It was one of those houses that you know you will never be able to afford. Marble bathrooms, huge sunny rooms, situated on the beach and beautiful back garden. A typical villa for the perfect wedding in Spain.

The last night in the city centre

Marbella is one of those amazing places where you can have the party you expect with a side of luxury. We went crazy with Anne the last night before the wedding. We did a proper bar crawl and ate great tapas. Anne was very cautious not to overdo it on her last night as a single gal. She always made sure that with every drink she drank a glass of water. That’s a very handy trick that I taught her. Ladies, this might just save your lives and your wedding! There is no point in explaining that Marbella is a beautiful historic town. Why don’t I just skip to the wedding!

The Wedding

The wedding was impeccable. Anne and her husband had a beach wedding in Spain.

They hired an altar on the beach and got some stunning sunset photos by a professional wedding photographer in Marbella. To be honest, I was a bit jealous. The bridesmaids stood right beside Anne, supporting the decision of her life. To be honest, the bridesmaids treated this wedding in Spain more as a vacation!

The afterparty and journey home

On the very next day, we returned home. I was a bit sad to leave Marbella. It truly is one of the most beautiful places to get married. The newlyweds extended their stay and kept the villa to themselves of course. I am truly happy for Anne and wish her all the best. She had a beautiful wedding in Spain and I am grateful I could be a part of it.
