HEY, I'M EVÓRA!
Celebrating your wedding in Spain
Do you need a wedding planner?
Do I need a wedding planner in Spain? As an experienced celebrant in Spain who works in the wedding industry, I’m going to help you with this question.
Not everyone needs a wedding planner, I planned my own wedding in Spain BUT, I was living in Spain, spoke the language, had lots of friends working in the wedding industry and most importantly had the TIME to do it. If you are planning to get married in Spain, here are some reasons why you should seriously consider a wedding planner.
There are lots of professional and great wedding planners to choose from in Spain, you should find one that suits your style and be sure to look at their previous work and reviews. The more similar those weddings are to what you want the more likely it is they will meet your expectations and at the best price. If you find a good wedding planner, they will fight for your vision, battle with vendors for you and make sure every single detail is perfect.
You should discuss your budget at the get go, talk about the different services the wedding planner offers and that you will need. Wedding planners will know which suppliers are within your budget, may have vendor discounts and can save you a lot of money. They will help you prioritise and can ensure you get the best deals because they are repeat business and couples are not.
Some vendors speak English and some don’t, for a local wedding planner there are no language barriers, they are simply getting you the best service, their knowledge of the local area, key suppliers and vendors really is invaluable. Get a bilingual wedding planner, that speaks the local language well and that can communicate with you in English, so that you don’t have to worry about misunderstands.
A wedding planner can handle all the legal elements for you and help you with any paperwork in Spanish. They can advise you straight away what is and isn’t possible which will make everything seamless and fun, and avoid you going around in circles. They are used to dealing with hiccups and will tackle any problems for you that may arise.
ON THE DAY CO-ORDINATION
A planner can hire vendors that are already with the space where you will be getting married and make sure everything is streamline. It’s possible that a venue may only coordinate services that they are responsible for such as the food or space itself, whereas a wedding planner will coordinate all the details and getting your guests from one area to another, for example from the ceremony to the reception. A wedding planner allows you to enjoy your wedding day alongside your guests.
Last but not least, I think this is one of the biggest reasons couples may opt to hire a wedding planner, TIME. If you plan your own wedding it takes a long time to find the right vendors, lots of communication goes back and forth before you get anywhere and then there’s all the paperwork. Hours and hours are required to cover all the details of a wedding, and even more if you are getting married in another country.
I’m a celebrant in Spain, if you are celebrating your wedding in Spain, you will need a professional like me to officiate your ceremony. The legal part of your union can be carried out in a registry office of your home country and I craft you a ceremony which can be carried out at your venue if you like!
