First of all, you will have to decide the type of wedding you want to plan, it is one of the most important aspects because it will mark the style in which the union will take place.

Civil ceremonies or civil weddings are ceremonies that take place in the courts or town halls, as the people in charge of the process are usually judges in charge of the civil registry, justices of the peace, mayors or councillors. Normally, a day is agreed upon to sign the papers that will prove that you are officially married, and the day of the signing is the moment when the civil wedding ceremony takes place. Some people like to personalize it and hire a ceremony officiant, you can even invite friends and family.
In this type of ceremony there will be many variations depending on the country and the couple’s customs. In Spain, the most common ceremony is the Catholic one, through a ritual celebrated by the priest or priest who is in charge of formalizing the union. This type of ceremony takes place in cathedrals, churches or chapels and respects the procedure of Catholicism. You will need to be up to date with the documentation required to get married “in church”, such as the baptismal certificates of each of you, or take the pre-marriage course to prepare for the ceremony.
It is important to be clear that in legal terms you will not be married, you will be formalizing the marriage in religious terms. Most people sign the marriage papers before the religious ceremony, so that for legal purposes they will be a married couple.
This type of wedding has been gaining prominence in recent years. Traditional civil and Catholic weddings do not seem to convince a certain number of couples. Either because they are not religious or because they don’t feel like having to go through such a bureaucratic process. In any case, it is a style of wedding that can be combined with the other two previous types, perhaps with the religious one you should consult beforehand, but normally they are usually a little flexible.
The most popular types of symbolic weddings are:
● Sand ceremony
The union is formalized by each partner pouring sand into a container and keeping it as a symbol of their union.
● Candle ceremony
The ceremony states that each member of the couple must light a candle with the candle that each of them has, in a joint manner, thus sealing the marriage.
● Handfasting ceremony
An act in which two people are united through a ritual where the hands are intertwined in the shape of an eight, a symbol of infinity that signifies the union between the sun and the moon.
● Ceremony of the roses
Greek tradition associated with the goddesses of love. The bond is generated through the exchange of a rose, accompanied by a few words to the couple as a sign of affection, respect and love.
The figure of a wedding planner can mean a leap in quality in the management of the event in general. This is the person who takes care of practically everything, formalizes agreements with suppliers and establishes an outline so that all the parties involved in the wedding act in harmony. If you have the chance to hire a wedding planner you will not regret it and you will be able to enjoy the day much more with your partner.
Regarding the rates of this type of professionals, it can vary depending on the number of guests and the time of the year in which you want to make the union. They usually charge a percentage of the wedding budget that may vary in relation to what we mentioned before.
