Spanish Wedding Invitations – Se le Invita!

Spanish Tile Invitations

Spanish Tile Invitations

You’ll want to capture the passion of Spain with these Spanish tile invitations for your wedding.

For an authentic feel, serve tapas, a classic Spanish appetizers. They are served as a wide range of small portions, each one featuring something a little different. These might include cold dishes such as olives or cheese or warm ones such as albóndlgas (meatballs in sauce), chopitos (fried squid) or patatas bravas (fried diced potato with salsa). A popular dessert food in Spain are churros, sticks of fried pastry similar in taste to a doughnut, which are dipped in hot chocolate.

To continue the theme from your invitations, music is so important.The characteristic Spanish sound is the flamenco guitar, associated with the city of Seville. Cost permitting, you could hire a live guitarist to play for your guests, but if you’re on a budget, try recordings of a revered flamenco guitarist such as Carlos Montoya.

Carry the colors from your invitations throughout your wedidng. Large floral displays could add color to the center of each table, though avoid dahlias and chrysanthemums because they are associated with funerals and death in Spain.

Brush up on your basic Spanish to get your guests in the mood for your wedding. “Hello” is “hola,” “how are you” is “como estas” and “goodbye” is “adios.” Say “muchas gracias” for “thank you very much” and “mucho gusto” for “pleased to meet you.” Refer to your friends as “amigo” or “amiga” for males and females respectively. ¬†Incorporating the sayings into your invitations would be adorable also!

Encourage your guests to come in Spanish-themed outfits. For men, consider renting matador or torero costumes and long flamenco dresses for women. For guests on a budget, simple costumes can be constructed. A long, flowing dress and fan will suffice for women, and a red shirt and sash with black trousers and shoes will give men a passably Spanish look for your wedding.
