Protea flowers are a popular choice when it comes to wedding decor because they are versatile and make a statement. With 1600 species of protea to choose from, measuring up to 12 inches in diameter, you’ll be sure to find one that compliments your wedding colors and theme.

If you want a more minimalistic look, try pairing the protea flower with simple greenery. This will highlight the focus flower without being over-the-top.

Budgeting for Wedding Bouquets [Infographic]

Planning a wedding? Then it’s likely that you’re planning a budget—even if your event is a very small affair. And if you’re including all the usual suspects in your wedding planning, then you’re likely making room in your budget for flowers.

Flowers are something that are typically included in wedding planning, even if you leave out some of the other add-ons. That’s because the couple getting married usually has some sort of flower that they hold or pin onto clothing. That flower can be a way to add a unique color or texture. Or if the flower has meaning for the couple, it can be a great way to include that sentimental approach in your wedding planning.

WEDDING HAT STYLE GUIDE

Ladies’ Wedding Hats – A Style Guide

There’s no such thing as “wedding season” anymore. Weddings are year-round, with many couples looking to monopolise a trend, theme or style for their big day. If you’re attending a wedding in the coming months, you’ve probably already planned out what you’ll be wearing. It’s an important day after all and the best excuse to hit the shops and find a new head to toe outfit.

After picking out a gorgeous dress (careful you don’t upstage the bride – unless you are the bride!) and some equally stunning footwear, you’ll be looking at how to accessorize in a stylish way to tie the ensemble together.  This is often the hardest part. But don’t worry! We’ve got you covered. Follow this advice, because there’s no more sure-fire way to make a statement than landing the right wedding hat.

Getting Married in Mallorca – Wedding Blessing vs. Church Ceremony

Are You Looking Forward to Celebrating Your Marriage in Mallorca? Congratulations!

Many people come to Mallorca to get married. However, non-residents who do not live in Spain are not allowed to marry in a civil ceremony. Therefore many couples decide to have the civil wedding in their country of origin or residence, and hold a second, religious or symbolic (also known as a wedding blessing), ceremony in Spain.

Choosing and Ordering Your Wedding Flowers

When should you order your flowers?

Ideally it should be once you have chosen your gown and the bridesmaids’ dresses. There are no set rules for timing, as all weddings are different, but preferably you should leave at least a couple of months before the day, to make sure everything is planned to perfection and ready in good time.

CANDY STYLE

Having a candy cart or sweets trolley at your reception is right on trend but why not take it a step further and have a desserts table? Display plates of cupcakes, bowls of Bon Bons and jars of tasty biscuits to tempt your guests. Keep to your wedding day colour by making everything on the table shades of one colour. Or, if you adore all things bright then pick a zingy colour like lemon drop yellow or apple red or mix up the colours!

Decor ideas for a pretty Mediterranean wedding in Mallorca

The Mediterranean culture has had a profound impact on the world in the form of cuisine, music and, of course, décor.

From characteristic olive trees and leaves and patio furniture, to popular stucco walls and terracotta flooring – the Mediterranean influence is everywhere. One thing to keep in mind is that Mediterranean people are especially attentive to their outdoor spaces. Because most of the region experiences warm and sunny weather, people spend a lot of time outside. Native pottery, sheer curtains, plush comfortable pillows and plenty of outdoor seating are all important when adding a Mediterranean style to your wedding. The other day we found this Mediterranean inspired wedding shoot at Style Me Pretty. Seems like the perfect inspiration for a pretty Mediterranean wedding in Mallorca. Love the rosemary and olive branch combination.

Same-sex marriage in Spain has been legal since 2005.

However, two non-resident foreigners cannot marry in Spain, as at least one of the partners must be a Spanish resident, although they both may be non-Spanish citizens. Therefore many couples opt for the wedding blessing which can take place in hotels, beach restaurants, yachts or other kind of venues. The service is the same as a church wedding but is not legally binding so you would have to manage the legal part in your country.

According to the Spanish National Statistics Institute (INE), 27,357 same-sex marriages took place up to the end of 2012. Most same-sex marriages in 2011 took place in Catalonia (886 weddings), Madrid (729 weddings) and Andalusia (484 weddings). Since its legalization, couples from a cross-section of Spanish society have entered into gay marriage. Within the first year, an influential socialist leader and Madrid city councilor Pedro Zerolo married Jesús Santos in January, and popular TV presenter Jesús Vázquez married Roberto Cortés in March. According to the Ifop poll (conducted in May 2013) 71% of the Spanish population supported allowing same-sex couples to marry and adopt children.
