We never dreamt of that we would write about the Coronavirus and weddings in Spain, but this is a topic that many people think about these days.
What to do with the wedding when affected by the Coronavirus? In Spain, several people have gotten the virus and been hospitalized. Many people infected explain that the symptons can be light and some doesn´t even notice that they are infected with the virus. On the other hand, it is not nice to be at a wedding if you feel scared of being infected with a virus and hospitalized. Or if you have serious illnesses or undergo cancer treatments. What should you know about the Coronavirus if you are going to get married abroad?
First, we all recommend having private insurance. Although the Spanish hospitals are good and certainly of the same standard as Norwegian hospitals (this comes from a Norwegian who has been hospitalized several times in Spain), one can still feel scared because one cannot speak the language. Therefore, it is best to have private insurance so that you can either get English speaking doctors, or possibly that the insurance company covers travel to back home if you wish.
Today at this moment we are looking at three alternatives to how to proceed with the current situation:
1. Wait, don't make any decisions before 2 weeks prior to your wedding
2. Postpone to next year
3. Cancel and contact your insurance company for refund

HOW CAN WE FIND OUR PERFECT VENUE
WHEN WE DON’T LIVE IN SPAIN?
If you don’t have the opportunity to
travel to Spain before your wedding day,
we will travel to your desired venues and
make “walk-through” videos for you. These
videos are much more reliable than
photos or other edited videos, as you will
see from where you will enter the building
and the whole area without any cuts.
WE HAVE DECIDED OUR VENUE ALREADY, DO WE NEED A WEDDING PLANNER?
For your wedding you will always need to book additional suppliers and services, these can be everything from photographers, live music, stylist, wedding cake, transport, hotels and more. We at Emma Luxury Weddings will coordinate everything in order to create a breath-taking wedding for you stress-free.
There are a few options to get married in Spain. One of them is a religious ceremony in a church, or a civil ceremony if you are not religious. Both of these require advance planning to organise the paperwork.
However, many of our couples choose to get married on their home country and later have a romantic blessing at their wedding in Spain. This blessing will be as romantic and memorable as an actual ceremony, but it does not include legalizing of your
WHY DO WE CHOOSE YOU INSTEAD OF OTHER WEDDING PLANNERS?
Emma Luxury Weddings only plans a limited number of weddings a year. Why? This allows us to dedicate more time to your special day and we will keep you updated throughout the planning process with unlimited meetings and email as required.
Additionally, we have the benefit of being native Norwegian, speaking both fluent English and Spanish. As we are living just nearby our venues we have the necessary qualifications to both visit and communicate with the native Spanish.
HOW IS THE WEATHER IN SPAIN?
South of Spain is known for it`s sunny
days. There are very few rainy days and
these are mostly common from October
to March. July and August can reach 40
degrees Celsius but there are possible
venues that offer either to start the
wedding after sunset or to celebrate the
wedding inside under air conditioning.
Our most popular months are May, June and

There are many couples that plans their wedding without hiring a Wedding Planner. When I got married myself we did not use a planner and our wedding was just like we wished for! If you have the time and the contacts to plan your own wedding, you will probably learn a lot of event planning during this time and with this knowledge you can also help others!
We would like to share with you 10 reasons why you should hire a Wedding Planner:
Personally we love Excel to create our budgets. We use excel for everything and anything. Creating budgets or even creating timelines or guests lists. We love it because you can quickly get back to the information you are looking for.
However, we understand that not everybody loves excel. This is the reason why we created a fillable PDF budget for free for your wedding. A wedding is very romantic and the process of planning a wedding should be joyful, and by controlling the costs of the wedding you are certain to avoid any issues in the long run. You dont want a panic attack after the wedding is over, you want to have full control of the costs at any time and knowing how this develops.
We can send you this PDF fillable budget for free. Let us know if you want any adjustments to the PDF. It can be used on mobile devices.
