1.Choose a wedding planner

 

The first step you must take is hiring a Wedding Planner to help you with all the preparations that a wedding abroad entails. They will advise you when making the most important decisions of the ceremony: the choice of dress, accommodation, catering, music, photographers, decorations …

You will have to trust them fully and make clear to her from the beginning your tastes and your ideas so that they know how to capture it in perfect detail.

2. Necessary documents

 

If you decide to celebrate a completely legal wedding you will have to present a series of documents that are not necessary in a symbolic wedding. Among them,you will have to include a birth certificate and marital status. On the other hand, if it is a religious wedding, you will have to present the baptismal certificate among other documents. You can find out more in this post about the documentation required to say ‘I do’ in Spain, if you are a foreigner.

If you are going to have a multicultural marriage, you can review all the procedures here.

However, for any wedding held in a symbolic way you just need to choose where you want it to take place and start designing it to your liking.

3. Area: Beach or mountains?

One of the great benefits of Spain is that it has a wide range of possibilities, in terms of areas, to make a wedding. If you prefer heat, the coast and its beaches are an ideal place. The Costa del Sol or the Balearic Islands are a success for all those who seek sun and outdoor ceremonies.
