Glamorous Barcelona Destination Wedding | Jenny & Charles

Barcelona Destination Wedding With Glitz And Glam

This romantic and sophisticated wedding in a grand old casino building turned out to be superb. Wedding dress challenge or not. I loved working with Jenny and Charles in the months leading up to their wedding. When the day finally came, it was very relaxed and fun. It had a dreamy mix of the modern meets old world. Learn how to plan an unforgettable evening for your guests and NOT leave your wedding dress at home. Read the bride’s advice below.


“I accidentally left my wedding dress at home as I left for the airport!”

Real words from my bride Jenny! I can’t imagine having to go through that a few days before your destination wedding in Barcelona. Not when you’re already a thousand miles away.
We wanted to ensure our guests let loose and had an exceptional evening. They were, after all, traveling a long way (flight commute times ranged from 7.5 hours to 25 hours). We incorporated various modern references that we love in our lives. Such as have a string quartet perform the Game of Thrones opening song for the bridal party’s walk down the aisle.
We are also big foodies so the food and drinks played an instrumental part in our wedding day. Charles wouldn’t let me have a wedding without traveling to Barcelona. To taste the food and sample the wine list (after thirty hours of flying and five airports later). We greeted our guests with specialty cocktails of our favorite drinks. A Jamon leg station, a paella booth, along with 13 other appetizers. All before their three-course dinner (in case they were hungry).

What was your favorite moment From your Barcelona Destination wedding?

Let me start with the fact I left for my Barcelona destination wedding, forgetting to bring my wedding dress. After much stress, my favorite moment would be when I received my wedding dress the night before the wedding. After it’s made a pit stop through five airports and two days in Munich during Oktoberfest.
My other favorite moment was seeing the reaction of my guests’ faces as they arrived at our venue. We had kept the location a secret. Not even a sneak peek on google pictures. We arranged for a bus shuttle service to pick everyone up. (I also had to ban my bridal party from social media posting before guests arrived). Our guests’ stunned faces as they arrived, filled our hearts with joy! The ceremony was also amazing. Where we could declare our love in such a romantic flower-filled arch and hear each other’s vows.

Tell us about your flowers, your gown, your favors, your cake, etc.

I wanted white, cream, and green colors for my flowers to match my theme as well as my dress.
I wore this fabulous Inbal Dror mermaid dress. It had detailed beading with a long nude-colored train. I tried on quite a lot of dresses and fell in love with many. But I think you need to choose a dress that you look best in photos as the dress can come out very different in pictures!

What is one piece of advice that you could give brides-to-be?

Hire a planner! Especially a local one. I found the most brilliant team helping me with my Barcelona destination wedding. I enjoyed working with my planners. They had such excellent taste and incredible organizational skills. My planners sorted out all the coordination during the day with details. Such as ensuring we didn’t bump into each other during getting ready shots. Due to weather, we had to scrap our original plans for the wedding in the garden. But they pulled everything together on the day better than we could have hoped for.
Another tip is, please book a few days off work before needing to fly to your destination wedding. I didn’t take any time off and I felt so rushed in the end. I filled six suitcases to carry for my wedding and honeymoon in Amalfi Coast. As a result, I left my wedding dress at home as I went to the airport!”
