Tips on Planning Spanish Weddings

When you think of Spanish weddings dramatic visions of an exotic bride in all her bridal finery appear. You imagine the bright and the best wedding centerpieces. Vivid orange blossoms are predominantly used in floral arrangements; and they are usually without any foliage.  Earthen pots may be used to decorate the reception area and also on tables. The bride at a traditional Spanish wedding wears a silk black wedding gown with a black lace veil to go with it. Nowadays many brides have taken to wearing white or ivory.

The best wedding centerpiece ideas are those that go with the theme of the wedding. For a Spanish wedding this would mean exquisite lanterns, gorgeous fans and flamenco dancers. You would need to select the items you use for the centerpiece based on your budget.

If you are getting married in Spain it will be easier to get authentic floral arrangements and other centerpieces. If you are in the US you may wish to go online and look for Spanish decorations and curios that you could use to create centerpieces. In case you are unable to get fresh flowers, make or buy silk flowers in bright colors and team them up with Spanish fans. Orange is the preferred color as it denotes happiness and joy.

A wedding in Spain is a time for families and friends to come together and celebrate the union of a couple. It is fun and exciting, and you would want to plan the music and dancing accordingly. The best wedding centerpieces require the right table linen and tableware. Bare wooden tables look great, and the rich color of the wood is a wonderful contrast to the bright flowers. Use lanterns and candles to add a touch of romance to the setting. You could also use glossy black table cloths and place fans and thick candles for the centerpieces. A single red rose in a slim vase will complete the look.
