On this website we have gathered answers to the most frequently asked questions about destination weddings.
Costa Blanca Events is specialised in Weddings in Spain, and more specifically, in the beautiful Costa Blanca, (white coast), where the sun shines more than 300 days per year. We can arrange everything, from arrival in Spain until departure back to your home country, and we offer a choice of over 30 venues to make your perfect wedding abroad come true, so have a look at our different moodbooks ;
Destination weddings are becoming increasingly popular,
but what are the benefits, possibilities, obligations, costs, etc ?
Anybody who has ever attended a wedding abroad will agree,
it's an unforgettable experience, for bride, groom and all of the guests.
Destination weddings are totally different. Bride, groom and all of the guests
are more relaxed, in a vacation style atmosphere where the sun is shining.
But it's almost impossible to plan a destination wedding all by yourself, so you need somebody that can take care of all the planning and preparations for you. Preferably a professional wedding planner who lives and works in the area, who speaks your language and the local language, and knows the local laws, venues, providers, etc...
You're not the first couple to face that question, so we've made a short video about the various options ...
Each wedding couple has other preferences, chooses a different venue, wedding setting, flowers and decorations, reception, dinner, etc... In short, each wedding is different, and as a result also the cost of each wedding is different.
That's why we created the free online wedding budget calculator which makes it very easy to get an answer to the question "what would be the cost of my dream wedding in Spain ?"
You enter the estimated number of guests to your wedding, and the system immediately creates a detailed wedding plan and budget for you, without any commitment whatsoever.
But it does even more then that ; it shows you 3 different totals, based on your estimated number of guests ;
the minimum budget
the average budget based on the services and choices chosen by most wedding couples
the maximum budget
Easy and transparant,so you immediately have an idea of what a destination wedding can cost you.
Do bear in mind that you guys don't have to pay everything for your guests !
Etiquette says that you only pay everything on the wedding day, and all other costs; flights, excursions, meals, transport, accommodation,etc...is a cost paid by the guests.
So, that being said, a wedding in Spain is surely not more expensive then a wedding in your own country, and you get to enjoy it together with your closest family and friends, those who really want to attend your wedding and will happily book a flight and hotel just to be at your wedding!
Some time ago, I wrote an article on how to plan your destination wedding using the 5W system, and it has been published on various international blogs about weddings abroad, and couples have found it very helpful.
You can find the article on our "how to plan a wedding abroad" page. In short, it all starts with 3 "W"s
We're based in Altea, in the Spanish Costa Blanca, which with 300 sun-days per year, not too hot in the summer and little chance of rain...In short, is an ideal climate for a destination wedding.
Choosing a venue is great, if it's available. If not, you either have to choose another date, or another venue.
That's why "when" is the second "w". In choosing the date, you also need to check if all the persons who really need to be there can make it to the wedding.
Unless you want to plan your wedding all by yourself ( which we absolutely don't recommend ) you need to hire a wedding planner, someone who lives and works in your chosen destination, who's experienced and ensures that your wedding dream, becomes a dream wedding. That's your 'who'.
