wedding journal show belfastIt’s a really busy time for the Commercial team here at Sunset; the vast number of trade fairs and exhibitions taking place at this time of year mean that the department is spread thin as different members jump on planes heading to a variety of European destinations.

Next week its Melissa’s turn as she heads off to The Wedding Journal Show in Belfast.

The venue for the show will be The King’s Hall and the dates are the 1st, 2nd and 3rd of October.

If you are in Belfast, make sure you visit our stand as Melissa will have some great wedding package offers available as well as the chance to win a 3 night winter break at Sunset Beach Club!

Winter Wedding in the sun

Winter Wedding in the Sun

We have many couples who choose Sunset Beach Club for their special day. The majority of weddings take place in the “higher” season months – typically from April to October – as people like to play it safe with the weather and prefer the warmer months.

That’s all very well, but the downside is that weddings in the high season tend to be considerably more expensive; hiring of wedding venues, accommodation, it all adds up. What most people do not realise is that the weather here on the Costa del Sol is generally very good in the winter months. Yes, we get some rain but we also get lots of sun too! With average winter temperatures (November to March) of 19ºC, a winter wedding in Spain might just be the right option for you.

Well, we’ve got a solution for those looking to save money and searching for a cheaper Spanish wedding option; Our new winter wedding packages are perfect for couples who would like to get married in Spain but are on a tight budget; you can save up to €1000 compared to a summer wedding. We have a range of packages which include seafront blessings or church ceremonies; to give you an idea, to can get a winter wedding package for €6200. What’s included in this price? We’ve highlighted the main items in the list below:

  • Personal Wedding Planner to help you arrange your special day
  • Wedding reception meal including drinks
  • Drinks reception with canapés
  • Table Flowers
  • Wedding night upgrade for the Bride & Groom
  • Church fees
  • Paperwork (legal)

  • Buttonholes for the Groom & best man
  • Flowers for the church
  • Bride’s hair and makeup
  • Taster meal
  • Bride’s transport to the church
  • Transport for guests
  • Photo Album

And if you think that’s great value, wait until you hear what your guests pay for a room in the hotel…..During the winter months we have special room rates which start at €56 per room per night (you can get 3 adults in each room) including full buffet breakfast!

Unsuspecting guests may have mistaken Wednesday’s wedding for a children’s birthday party! Lisa and Jez didn’t want a formal bash but instead wanted their day to be as relaxed and truly enjoyable as possible, not just for themselves but for all of their guests, especially the younger ones! After getting married in Gibraltar the couple that live locally here on the Costa del Sol travelled back to the Hotel where they greeted guests with a cava and canapé reception followed by gala dinner and then after party. The bride pulled out all the stops when it came to decorating the banquet room, brightly coloured balloons, assorted chair ribbons and incredible amounts of sweets and chocolate on every available surface, not to mention the cake! Words can’t describe, so hopefully this picture does the trick, a fantastically fun day was enjoyed by all!

I’ve only just got around to uploading my pictures from my recent trip to Dublin! As I had mentioned on an earlier post that this was my first trip to Ireland and I am pleased to say I had a great time there, working hard on our stand at the Wedding Journal Show all weekend and meeting lots of friendly locals. Although the weather wasn’t great, at least I managed to avoid the snow! The show was held at the Citywest Convention centre and there was a great turn out, with lots of interest in getting married here in Spain. My colleagues, Miguel and Claire will be in Dublin again this weekend at the Bride of the Year Show, so if you’re in the area, be sure to visit them at the RDS!

My first wedding exhibition!

The first English speaking wedding show on the Costa del Sol took place last weekend. The Perfect Wedding Expo was held at the Palacio de la Paz in the Fuengirola fairground. It was the first wedding fair I have attended and I was pleasantly surprised by the atmosphere and the great turn-out of both exhibitors and visitors. There were suppliers present for everything from delicious chcoolate fountains, beautiful wedding dress and evening gown designs to diamonds and jewellery as well as florists, planners and photographers, making it the one stop shop for any bride to be, planning their wedding on the coast. Myself, Claire – our wedding co ordinator and Kerry – our wedding planner looked after the Sunset Beach Club stand, click here to take a look at our stand!
