Do you dream of getting married with the sound of waves and blue waters as backdrop?
Then plan for a beach wedding on the Mediterranean Sea, and in particular in Spain.
In Spain, you will find fantastic rocky bays and sandy beaches for a unique destination wedding. You can hold a romantic ceremony by the sea followed by a reception with delicious tapas, local produce and exquisite Andalusian wines and finally relax in a rustic fincas or cozy accommodations.
One of the best things about a Spanish beach wedding is that you don’t need too much pomp and show decorations, as the scenery speaks for itself. The turquoise water and the heavenly beaches will be all you need to make your wedding barefoot on the sand an unforgettable experience.
Instead of spending your budget on lavish floral adornments or overmuch embellishment, you can add touches of light and romantic elements such as candles dotted around the venue, small lanterns and simple details that highlight the wedding theme.
From the viewpoint of where to plan your wedding reception by the sea, this lovely country provides a great variety of stunning locations, especially around Costa Del Sol.
You can choose between different solutions:
- If you want a refined and luxurious wedding, opt for wonderful beachfront restaurants with exceptional views, intimate corners and eclectic furniture. These exclusive beach clubs are surrounded by lush gardens and have modern and exquisite facilities.
- If you prefer a simple and intimate wedding, choose a beach restaurant with a more relaxed, casual feel and a Mediterranean style décor. These charming venues are cozy and immersed in a lovely natural setting.
Make sure the venue has plenty of outdoor space, such as a beach, a poolside area or a rooftop terrace, as well as an indoor area, each to be used for a different moment of your wedding. From the waterfront ceremony you can then enjoy a sunset aperitif on the terrace overlooking the sea, followed by an indoor reception and ending with a beach party under the stars.
From a culinary perspective, the menus will leave you spoilt for choice. Weather you plan to have an informal buffet, a barbeque or a sumptuous five-course meal, the culinary offer will meet (and exceed) your expectations. Andalusian cuisine offers countless options, from the classic tapas to fresh seafood to the unmissable queso manchego and jamon serrano.
From a wedding dress point of view, opt for something simple with light fabrics and elegant cuts to stay cool and comfortable. Beach soleless sandals are a beautiful alternative to classic shoes, ideal for beach weddings.
With so many options to choose from, sunshine all year round and some of the best culinary delights in Europe, who would miss the opportunity to have a beach wedding in Spain?
