Getting married in Spain and surviving the heat

So you have decided to book your wedding in Spain and we don’t blame you as who wants to risk the wonderfully wet and cold weather of the great British Summer.  Now you just need to make sure that your wedding guests don’t melt in shock of the heat of a Spanish Summer.  Here are some of our favorite ideas to keep your guests cool and refreshed throughout the day, ensuring they party long into the night!

Wedding Fans – an absolute essential and available in a wide range to suit all wedding styles.  They are also great as doubling up as favors for your guests and can be personalized with a simple gift tag or even printed with your order of service or your menus.

Paper Parasols – not only practical but also very pretty and can offer a welcome bit of shade for your guests during your wedding ceremony.

 Lemonade Stand – what is more cooling and refreshing than ice cold homemade lemonade, loved by both adults and children alike.

Cooling Station – our favorite idea and a fun and thoughtful addition to any cocktail hour to greet your guests with after the ceremony.  You can include ice cold towels, refreshing facial sprays in cucumber, mint and lavender,  buckets of ice cold drinks or vintage glass dispensers filled with your favorite chilled cocktail. Fans, insect repellents and sun screen are also a nice practical touch along with some flipflops for any tired feet.

 Refreshing Cocktails - With Signature Cocktails being all the rage this year we love these simple Prosecco and Ice Lolly Cocktails.

Ice Lollies - Lastly and another of our favorites are these super cute and super yummy Mojito Popsicles.
