As winter arrives in Spain and we have started our December holidays here, I am tucked up on top of my radiator, so it is lovely to receive photos of our weddings of hot sunny tropical days!! I do love to see our weddings but sometimes do not get the photos, Liz kindly sent me hers this weekend and also said it was strange viewing them whilst she was surrounded by snow in the UK!
It is always a good starting point when you are planning a destination wedding to consider the colours of that country, normally bright tropical flowers are in abundance here in Spain, with hot pinks, oranges, reds, purples and yellows and it always works well in the hot sunshine to reflect these colours in your wedding.
Liz definitely wanted a bright coloured wedding, using predominently pinks and yellows and was happy to leave the details to us but a definite decoration Liz loved was the tissue pom poms and wanted a fun vibrant wedding day.
We created some gorgeous bouquets for Liz and her bridesmaids and the boys had hot pink rose buttonholes. For the church we provided fans dressed in hot pink and lemon ribbons with personalised tags.
The reception was held at the fabulous beach setting in the Suite Del Mar at Puente Romano hotel, which has undergone lots of refurbishments including glass windows and doors installed ready for the winter season, it looks amazing, one of our favorite venues here in Marbella.
We decorated the Suite del Mar with a mixture of pink and yellow lanterns and pom poms, the effect was lovely and certainly added a party element into the day. On the tables we created beautiful brightly coloured floral arrangements in glassware filled with lemons and limes and surrounded with pink and lemon tealights, it looked stunning.
Pom poms are definitely the way forward next year, and Reviva Weddings now offer them as part of our decoration range, we will blog wedding trends over the winter as well but this is one we will see a lot of next year.
It was wonderful to hear from Liz and David and here is their testimonial.
I wanted to drop you a note to say thank you to you and your team for our wedding back in September.
We were really pleased with the flowers and the Decoration at the Suite Del Mar.
I know that it was a pretty rough brief that I gave you due to my lack of knowledge about flowers but I was really impressed by the outcome and it was exactly how I envisaged it.
The bright colours and ceiling decoration definitely gave us the party feel we were looking for.
Speaking to my brother who went to see the venue in the morning and was a bit shocked by the amount of water due to the rain the day before, I imagine you all worked really hard in getting it looking as great as it was.
Thanks for all your hard work and it looked amazing.
