Why should you elope in Spain and enjoy a Spanish fiesta? Here are 4 reasons why.

1. Time for a Fiesta

If you want to celebrate, there really is no better place than Spain. Spanish celebrations are wild and wonderful.

Traditional Spanish weddings start off at a church and then finish off at an evening celebration that continues into the early hours of the morning.

Guests wear tropical colours and shower the newlyweds with rice and rose petals. Alongside salsa dancing and colourful cocktails, each of your wedding photos will be full of radiant colours.

2. Food, Glorious Food

Weddings in Spain are also famous for their food. When you’re getting married in Spain, you get an amazing menu to go with the party. Sensational foods include the freshest seafood, olive-filled dishes, tapas, paella, gazpacho, and the incredible Jamón Ibérico.

And don’t forget the delicious drinks to go with the food. Sweet sangria, fresh fruit juices, and summer cocktails galore. You won’t go wrong with a traditional glass of fine Spanish wine either.

Stop drooling and start booking!

3. Let Me Entertain You

Getting married in Spain usually means a big party with some amazing entertainment. Traditional dances are far from a stiff waltz. Saucy bachata dance moves and traditional costumes will give your wedding a unique twist.

Of course, to go with the amazing dance moves, you need amazing music!

Music should entwine throughout your big day, from ceremony songs to the first dance to dancing the night away. Hire a live band or DJ for your Spanish wedding to get the party started.
