Are you having children attending your Wedding Day? and need some ideas on how you can keep them entertained..... then this blog is all about that.

I have been to a few weddings recently that have really catered for the kids which has been FAB - Having a nearly 4 year myself it can be hard work to keep them out of mischief especially when photos are being taken, and the speeches are being done. So here are a few ideas that I have come across that I hope will be of use to you all.

 

Outdoor Games - This is a FAB way of keeping them happy if you have the space to do it - Things like giant jenga, snakes and ladders, skittles and twister to name a few. A perfect way to get the kids all playing together no matter what ages - and also im sure the big kids (Adults) will join in too :) 

kids outdoor games ideas

 

Kids Table - If you have a few children at your wedding then you could always have a kids table, they can then all sit together and have a different centrepiece that is relevant for them - maybe lego. You could then have colouring books, small toys and a few sweets - so they dont ruin their dinner. This works perfect for the older children maybe not so suited if you have under 5s.

kids table

 

Childcare Service - You could aways have a few hours of child care provider, there are many companies around UK and Aboard that offer this service and it is perfect. I have been to a wedding that had this and they were amazing. They bring lots of different toys and they play games with the children. You could always have the service whilst the drinks reception and speeches are happening so the kids dont get bored and are definately entertained and then they come and sit at the table once food is being serviced.

Kids Entertainer - Another idea is to have a kids entertainer. There are many different options out there that you can choose from: A Magician, A Clown, A Balloon Artist, Facepainter. All these will definately kids your kiddies happy for an hour or so. 

 

A Photo Booth- This is a perfect way to getting the kids involved and creating some FAB photos - also the adults will LOVE this too. With a prop box you can have hours of fun dressing up and making some funny photos. There are a few different options out there you could have a prop box, a few cardboard cutouts, photo frames and a polaroid and have some fun or you can hire a photo booth.

The past couple of weeks it seems hen parties have been popular for me, A few weeks ago I taught a couple of hen's a chicago themed dance as part of their hen party package and then a good friend of mine gets married next year so hen party discussions have started...... this has inspired me for this weeks blog:

What type of hen party are you having?

 

Is your hen party all planned? if so what are you doing?

 

With so many different options out there it is quite a daunty task for your maid of honour/bridesmaids to plan the perfect night/weekend/week hen party for the bride to be and after all it has to be what the bride will love doing, the last think you want to do is organise something the bride to be will not enjoy. So I have put together a few different ideas I have come across to maybe give you a bit of inspiration.

1) A popular choice for many - a relaxing spa day, a day to unwind with your girls, get pampered and a spot of lunch.

sarah hen do

2) A big night out - VIP treatment into a big club - brush of those heels and dance the night away

VIP hen

3) A cocktail making class - A FAB experience with plenty of laughs - plus you get to drink the cocktails

cocktail hen

4) An extreme sport day - this could involve a range of watersports, or land based activities eg rockclimbing, clay pigeon shooting - a fun day experiencing something a bit different

watersports

 

5) A weekend away - maybe a city break with a mix of seeing the sights and of course plenty of food and drinks in the evening - or maybe head to a beach resort to soak up the sun in the day and then dance the night away in the bars and clubs.

city break hen

6) A murder mystery themed dinner event - A great opportunity to get all dresses up into your themed charactor and take part as the mystery unfolds. 

hen murder mystery

 

7) A dance lessons - this is what I taught a few weeks back to a hen party, they came all dressed up in frapper dresses as the dance themed they chose was Chicago, I taught them a dance which they learnt perfected and then i filmed it. It was a good giggle and it is suitable for all ages.

8) A boat river cruise with dinner and evening entertainment - A lovely way to enjoy the views plus something a bit different then being in a bar.

 hen boat

Of course you can also combine many of these things together to make it the perfect Hen Party. This is just a few ideas for you, I hope it has given you a few ideas.

 

Would love to hear what your hen party has planned?

Pierre Richardson Photography

 

pierre himself1) a photo of your company team, bit about the company and your services in Spain

 My name is Pierre, I am a full-time professional wedding photographer based in Tarifa, just south of Gibraltar where the Costa del Sol meets Africa. This is where I have made my home, and where I have established my studio for the last 14 years.

I am often asked what it's like to live here, and do what I do, and the short answer is I believe I have the best job in the world: I am permanently surrounded by happy people in beautiful settings, who invite me to the happiest day of their lives to help them remember it forever. And all this in guaranteed sunshine..!

Fun and light-hearted as all this may be, it is also for me a great responsibility, as your wedding photographs are the foundation for preserving all those wonderful memories, which you and your loved ones will cherish for years to come.

I always feel very honoured when couples entrust me with photographing their wedding day, and it really inspires me to capture it in a way that reflects their vision, with all the love, the joy, the beauty, and the sacredness of such a special occasion. So to all you lovely happy people, a genuine and heartfelt "thank you"!

 

 

2) how long have you been working along side Perfect Spanish Weddings? Your experience in working with them?

I have worked with Perfect Spanish Weddings for a couple of years now, and I have found Moira and all her team to be very professional, easy going and just great to work with.

 

3) what is your favourite wedding trend? and Why?

The vintage-glamour look, as much for the couples' outfits as for the settings and decorations, I like this new classy trend of mixing old and new, it's fresh and makes for great photos!

 

4) if you could recommend a place to visit whilst in Spain to our couples where would it be and why?

It has to be Tarifa, my home town, with its 7 km of white sandy beaches, where the Mediterranean meets the Atlantic ocean, and Africa is just a short hop across the strait. It is one of the most beautiful places in Europe, perfect for wedding photography, especially "trash the dress" shoots! 

 

5) What is your favourite Spanish Dish?

Tapas, tapas!

 

6) what does 2018 wedding season have in store for you?

It's already shaping up to be a very busy season here in Spain, but I have established a base in Dublin this year, so I hope to develop more business opportunities there for 2018.

Where will you be buying your wedding dress from? and How much are you willing to pay?

dress shopping

 

There is a mixed opinion about wedding dresses somebrides say its only a dress you wear for one day so they wouldnt spend too much on it, but then others say you its a big part of the wedding and they would spend a couple of thousand pounds for the right dress..... where do you stand?

Its seems to be a growing trend that more and more people buy their wedding dresses online, and if im honest I can see why they do, with the cost of some wedding dresses today.

But would you risk buying your wedding dress online??

bridal shopping online

I can honestly say when I got married it never even crossed my mind to buy my dress online, and I am a bargain Queenbut I loved going from bridal shop to bridal shop and having the experience of trying all the different styles on, and I was on a budget too. I was very lucky to find my dream dress for £550…. yes this was 12 years ago but I do believe you can still snap up a bargain from a bridal shop. 

Having worked in the Bridal Industry it does seem that more and more Brides are looking for a bargain and Iam fully with them on this, you dont need to spend thousands of pounds on a dress you can still finda stunning dress for £600 and under depending on what style of dress you are looking for. This does however mean some people looking at purchasing online but it is so risky and it is something you really need to consider. Its great getting ideas of dresses online and getting a feel as to what you like but just really think long and hard about buying online. There are so many horror stories where Brides have brought online, their dress arrives and it is nothing like the original photo.

At least buying from a shop you can

1) try it on

2) get the whole “bridal” experience

3) have somewhere to go if there are any problems – security

So with all of this is mind there are many other ways of being able to get your dream wedding dress at a more affordable price.

  1. Check out your nearby Bridal shops as they may have Sale dresses or discontinued dresses where you can snap up a BARGAIN
  2. Look on Facebook at your local wedding sale pages as loads of shops and people sell dresses on there
  3. Larger department shores with have a range of dresses at reasonable prices
  4. Have a look around for lower cost wedding dress shops, there are a few around where you can grab yourself a good deal. Wholesaler, discontiued dresses warehouse

So please just think before you go buy that cheaper dress online – as you only plan to get married once and it is YOUR wedding dress you are buying and not just an evening dress

Wedding Cakes In Spain 

 

We are pleased to be introducing guest blogs from all our lovely supppliers. Today's blog is from Wedding Cakes In Spain.

                                                                                                                         Wedding Cakes In Spain was started in 2003 and has gone from strength to strength. We specialise in designing and create bespoke wedding cakes for your special occasion.

2) How long have you been working along side Perfect Spanish Weddings? Your experience in working with them?

Wedding Cakes In Spain has worked alongside PSW since 2009, I remember the first cake I made for PSW, it was a 4 tier creation decorated with lots of lemon coloured sugar roses for a wedding at the Villa Padierna Hotel. My experience working with PSW has always been positive and enjoyable.

 

3) What is your favourite wedding trend? and Why?

I think all weddings are beautiful, but if I were to pick a favourite trend I would choose the 20’s 30’s vintage look, inspired by a favourite TV program of mine Downton Abbey. I love the fashion of this era and the influence it has had on many weddings I have worked with over the past year or so.

 

4) If you could recommend a place to visit whilst in Spain to our couples where would it be and why?

As a huge skiing fan I would have to recommend a trip to Sierra Nevada. The scenery is breathtaking whether you visit to ski in the winter months or walk in the summer months, I absolutely love it up there.

 

5) What is your favourite Spanish Dish?

This just has to be gambas pil pil, spicey and hot with lots of garlic.... to die for!

 

6) What does 2018 wedding season have in store for you?

Busy... but to be perfectly honest I would just like to focus on getting to the end of the 2017 wedding season before I can give any real thought to next year!

Candles create a very romantic atmosphere to a wedding table. You could have a tall candelabra or small tea lights in a tea-light holder. You can also add petals to the table to add a little bit more, or flowers or stones/pebbles, these are just a few ideas for you there are many more you can find on our pinterest page or google.

Tall Centrepieces:

Having a tall centrepiece can make a real impact on the table and works really well if your in a grand building or maybe outside in a grand garden. You can use tall glasses for this and add flowers or maybe feathers. Or you could have a large candelabra and then add decorations to this. A large wishing tree also looks lovely and by adding some hanging crystals and maybe candles in glass jars also looks beautiful. A few pictures below of some examples.

Long Centrepieces:

If you choose to have a long table you can always add a long centrepiece onto the table rather then a few individual ones. It adds the look of a table runner but with a use of different things from wood, leaves, candles to name a few it can really make a table stand out. A few ideas for you.

WOW... how do you decide what to have in your hair on your wedding day with so many things to choose from!

Veils

Birdcages

Tiara

Hairpieces

Flowers

I suppose it all comes down to what type of wedding you are planning on having and your hairstyle as to what will look amazing in your hair.

 

The Veil - a tradition that has been around for hundreds of years and as we see many wedding traditions change over the years this is one tradition that has always stuck. Many brides these days still do choose to wear a veil and its not always if they are getting married in a Church. Veils vary from length from a shoulder length to a cathedral veil which is to the floor and the detail in the veils can be very plain and simple to lace or diamontes.

A birdcage is a trend that has come in over the past few years and it fits perfectly with your vintage themed weddings which are still a big trend. Its a lovely hairpiece that adds that slight tradition of your face being covered but is still modern.

Tiara or Headband - most brides always want a bit of sparkle in their hair and tiaras or headbands are still very popular. You can have something thats quite small and delecate or something that really stands out. A tiara works lovely if you have a simple elegant dress as it just makes it pop out. Having a tiara or headband can also work well if your having a veil. Every bride can enjoy being a princess for one day :)

Hairpieces are a big trend and there are so many different styles and designs you can choose from. You can have pearls and/or diamonds in them they can be side clips, back clips, pieces that run around the back of your head and also run around the front of your head. Hairpieces work well with all dresses and all types of weddings its a great way to add a bit of sparkle to your hair but it doesnt have to be huge.... some of the smaller pieces can also work well with a veil.

Floral hair - a big trend if your having a boho style wedding. Having just flowers in your hair can look lovely. You can have flowers just put through your hairstyle, or have a floral headband or maybe just simply have a large flower tucked behind your ear. This look also looks beautiful if you having a beach wedding.

I hope this has given you a bit of inspiration as to what you would like to have in your hair on your wedding day. Just remember to try things on as part of your wedding dress shoppping experience as you will probably find that the one thing you said you didnt really want you end up buying and to be honest it is amazing how a dress tranforms once you accessory.

 

Happy shopping and I know whatever you decide to have you will look stunning on your wedding day.

Next Stop Honeymoon

 

Are you the one who will be booking their Honeymoon as one of the first things on the list or will you be leaving it until the last minute once everything else is paid for?

Having chatted to a few couples there really is a mix of opinions with regards to a Honeymoon..... some say they are getting it booked straight away as its an important part of the wedding planning preparations and then others have said they hadnt even thought about it yet and that they will look into into once everything is paid for.

 

A honeymoon is not just a holiday it is the first time away as Husband and Wife, a time to relax after all the stress of planning your wedding and also having the opportunity of maybe visiting somewhere you have always wanted to go but would never really do it as just your normally annual holiday.

Then its deciding what type of honeymoon to have..... do you go with Beach, City, Adventure, Ski or maybe even a Road Trip.

 

Beach - A perfect way to unwind, chill in the sunshine and basically not do much. With so many places to choose from this. You could go with an All Inclusive Hotel or maybe just a small island bungalow. With your days spent relaxing by the pool or beach, maybe a bit of sightseeing and then watching the sunset with a cocktail in your hand. A few location ideas for you Thailand, Fiji, Bali, Seychelles to name a few..... Is this your type of Honeymoon?

City - If you are not a beach bum and enjoy the city life and exploring then this could be the honeymoon that is perfect for you. You can spend your days walking, cycling or maybe bus tours around the stunning city sights then come the evenings visit the restaurants, Bars or maybe even the theatres. A few ideas for you New York, Boston, Rome, Paris. Is this your type of Honeymoon?

America 2011 748

 

Adventure - for all the adrenaline junkies out there, if your an active pair and love trying new things then this is an great honeymoon option for you. Spend your days jumping off cliffs, scuba diving into the lush turquoise seas, spend the day with the orangutans or if your feeling really tough then climb a mountain. A couple of location ideas for you Killimanjaro, Red Sea, Borneo, Brazil, Costa Rica...... So is this your type of Honeymoon.

Ski - So a snowing break is more what your looking for. Hitting the slopes by day, feeling the fresh air against your face and then by night cosying up by the fire with a glass of wine with your loved one. Sounds lovely doesnt it. A few location options for your France, Bulgaria, Italy, Canada.... Is this your type of Honeymoon.

Road Trip - for the explorers at heart. Touring from place to place, exploring new things and getting to see everything from mountains to beaches to national parks.
