A wedding in Spain is not over and done with in one day, that much is clear !
Usually the guests fly in and stay a few nights in Spain, often more.
If you have been on a tour of the venues and accommodations with us, then we've discussed the various options with you during the tour, if not, you can find all info, description, photo's and prices of the accommodations we work with on our online systems.
Accommodation in the Costa Blanca offer great value for money, especially sind we have negotiated special deals, starting as low as 20 € per person and per night, depending on the accommodation chosen, and season.
Based on our info, bride and groom select the accommodation(s) they wish to suggest to their guests.
It's absolutely recomendable to limit the number of accommodations, where your guests will be staying.
If your guests are scattered around in lots of accommodations in the area, then either chances of all guests arriving in time for the wedding are close to zero, or it will require extensive organisation, transport and costs to bring your guests to the venue, and back after the party.
Rental cars are absolutely not advisable on the wedding day, because in Spain, as in most other countries, drinking and driving is a very bad idea, and alcohol controls are very frequent.
Taxi's are often difficult to come by, and cannot be booked in advance, often resulting in long waiting for guests who want to return to their accommodation, which is very inconvenient for them.
Therefore, choosing only one accommodation is ideal, because it creates the best ambiance within the group, especially if it's a small group. It also saves on transport, makes it easier for guests to book hairdresser, make up artist, etc, and reduces the risk of guests arriving late on the day of your wedding.
But what if your accommodation of preference cannot sleep all your guests, or you suggest a luxury hotel, which not all of your guests can afford.
Then we recommend to suggest a maximum of 3 accommodations to your guests, in different price ranges.
A hotel is the most flexible choice, and we have negotiated great deals with various hotels in the region.
Some hotels, especially during high season, impose a minimum number of nights, often 2 or 3, especially in the weekend, while others allow a stay of just one night
Most hotels include breakfast, making the stay very relaxed, since you don't need to go out for breakfast, or buy food in the supermarket. It's a luxury too, rooms are cleaned, beds made , etc...
And it doesn't have to be expensive, since we have negotiated special deals and great hotel wedding packages.

A finca is the name of a traditional Spanish villa.
There are thousands of villa's and apartments for rent in the Costa Blanca, and by law they must be registered as a tourist accommodation, which offers some form of guarantee on quality. Unfortunately the majority of owners still haven't registered their rental property, and continue to rent out often dated, badly maintained villas.
Apartments and villas are usually rented out per week, from Saturday to Saturday, especially in high season.
This is often a problem, since most likely the majority of your guests will not stay for a whole week.
Often costs like final cleaning, use of electricity, internet, airconditioning, etc.. are charged extra, making the total cost often higher then a hotel.
Usually there is also a deposit, usually paid by the wedding couple, which they loose in case of damages.
But a rental property does offer a lot of freedom and privacy, you get up when you want, no queue at the restaurant, do what you want, and everything in the complete privacy of your group.
Therefore, as wedding planners, we've selected a limited number of finca's, villa's and apartments which are perfect for groups, offer great value for money, and of which we can monitor their quality.

Imagine you getting married at 10 AM in your home town, and you invite a friend who lives a 4 hour drive from you.
Obviously, your friend won't risk arriving late, so is likely to leave home the day before the wedding, and stay 2 nights in a local hotel. Would you pay for his hotel ? Would you pay for his gasoline ?
Well, most couples wouldn't, they wouldn't even consider it, right ?
In destination weddings the situation is similar, since your guests will have to travel, and book accommodations, and they perfectly understand that the wedding couple cannot pay for everything.
According to wedding etiquette, you do need to pay for all expenses on the wedding day, reception, dinner, etc for the guests you have invited to the various functions on the day, but you're not required to pay for anything else.
That being said, of course none of your guests would mind if you pay for ( part of ) their accommodation.
Some couples for example offer 1 or 2 nights in a standard room in the accommodation where they're staying.
Guests can then decide, and pay for any upgrade or extended stay.
