Spanish Wedding Invitations – Se le Invita!

By jo anne

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.

Seriously in love with these Spanish tile wedding favors!  Perfect marriage of style and function.

 Every time a guest sits on their patio at home and rests their margarita on the tile, they can say, “Gracias!” to you and your impeccable taste!

  I love bold colors and a good wedding theme, and today’s amazing Spanish inspired wedding has both!

 I love bold colors and a good wedding theme, and today’s amazing Spanish inspired wedding has both!   This Texas bride brought a Southwestern flair to sunny Florida, and I’m pretty much obsessed!

Awesome advice, Haley! I must say, one of my favorite things about this wedding are the amazing favors. The tile coasters were the perfect way to tie in the bride’s Texas roots as well as remind their guests of the beyond gorgeous Spanish inspired venue. Brides, are y’all planning a special favor for your guests? I’d love to hear all of your wonderful ideas!

My favorite thing about the wedding, besides marrying my best friend, was a close tie between our Spanish/Tex-Mex inspired menu and the Mexican tile coaster wedding favors. It is so fun to hear from friends and family that the coasters are now a staple in their homes and offices.

Seriously in love with these Spanish tile wedding favors!  Perfect marriage of style and function.

Mother of the Bride: The Perfect Planning Partner

By jo anne

me and cindy mother of the bride oh goodie designs

As always when planning an event I always have the best time with my client. Trust is built, connections are made and vision is shared. I’m honored to say that I have stayed in contact with most of my clients and always can share a friendly hug and chat when we see each other around town.

This past wedding was different. Courtney’s Mother immediately heard every word I said, took to heart every detail and trusted my vision from the get go. As the planning process began, she put her trust in me and my vision to make her daughter’s day become a reality.

We talked several times a day, became quick texters and chatted at length daily. Covering every detail. It became a normal part of my day to talk to her at least 3 times a day. As a busy business owner herself, she always had the time for me to stop by her shop and even at times go to lunch.

We became instant friends and as the big day grew near, I started to worry that our chats and texts would end. Becoming friends with my clients is nothing new to me, but this felt different. I am honored to have planned and helped Cindy every step of the way.

We have chatted since and even today shared a laugh and promised to do lunch soon. Thank you Cindy and Courtney for trusting me and my vision. It makes my job easier to connect and enjoy being with my clients. I am honored to have planned your special day. And I am honored to call you my friends.

Weekend Update: NEW! Inspiration Boards

By jo anne

style inspired

We had such a busy weekend with beach weddings, meeting a new bride and a fundraiser! WHEW!

That was just Saturday.

Sunday we had a booth at the Wedding Fair and had a great time meeting new vendors and potential Brides.

style inspired

I’d say they loved our table and new Inspiration  Boards. These boards are developed to make your vision for your big day accessible and easy to translate to your vendors and wedding party. I see many Brides get carried away on Pinterest pinning pictures and before you know it their idea or vision is all over the place. I love to help organize those thoughts and narrow down your vision by creating Inspiration Boards. You can carry this with you as you  visit venues and vendors so that everyone involved is on the same page.

inspiration boards for weddings style inspired

 They include 6-7 inspiration pictures, fonts to match your theme and colors.

We already have 8 to choose from and the Brides that have seen them have said “that’s exactly what they are looking for!”

Let me know if I can develope one for you!

 

 

 

Id love to delvelope a board for you! Lets chat about your vision and make it come to life.
