Inspired by Spain too…
Once again its my favourite day of the week and we are so lucky to be heading off for a long weekend to our favourite part of Andalucia, the Costa De La Luz. We can’t wait to relax for just a few days on the lovely white sandy beaches! So as you can imagine its a very happy Friday wedding beauties! I hope you all have something nice planned too!
Continuing on from last weeks Blog, Inspired by Spain we wanted to share another wedding palette inspired by the beauty and nature of Spain. So today, it’s all about Lemons! Their fresh citrus scent, their thirst quenching juice and their beautiful bright colourful skin!
Lemons are a super special fruit with many health benefits and almost 50 different uses. They were first introduced to Spain by the Arabs hundreds of years ago. With a high sensitivity to the cold lemons grow only in very particular regions, Andalucia being one of them! With two types of Lemons being grown in Spain, the Fino and the Verna, an all year round supply of Lemons is guaranteed for your Lemon inspired Wedding day celebration!
Symbolically Lemons are a great accessory or theme to your wedding day. Symbolising longevity, purification, love and friendship, the perfect elements for a long lasting marriage.
If you are planning your wedding during the summer months in Spain and you would like to incorporate a Lemon theme, they will certainly play more than one role on your wedding day. The bright and beautiful fruit is perfect for vibrant decoration, incorporate them into your wedding styling. Using them will add a sense of nature and wholeness to your day. Ask your Stylist to add them to your centerpieces, floral displays, use as name card holders, to decorate your aisle and perhaps burn lemon essence to refresh the air and help to keep insects at bay!
Old fashioned Lemonade makes a great refresher for a hot wedding day! Display in a Vintage dispenser with plenty of ice and keep your guests refreshed, hydrated and also energised throughout your wedding day! And to bring some life to your evening reception, why not serve your guests signature Vodka lemonades!
