Destination Wedding Locations: Spain
Your Guests Will Thank You!
Spain is the type of country that many Americans would love to visit, but don’t always make it to. Yet Spain is a top contender for destination wedding locations, and for good reason. People love the culture, the language, the mystical appeal, and of course, the amazing food and wine.
- For those who like to go to bed late and begin their day later in the morning, Spain is on the perfect schedule. People don’t eat until 11 p.m. in some parts, and even Starbucks is not open at 6 a.m. as it is in most U.S. cities.
- The landscape of Spain is diverse. For those who love mountains, there is the Pyrenees, and for those who love the ocean, there are many spectacular beaches. (San Sebastian, in the north Basque country, is a resort town and great for destination wedding locations). There are also volcanic islands, lush vegetation, and desert; each region also has a slightly different culture.
- Madrid is an amazing city, full of medieval architecture, cobblestone streets, art museums, and great nightlife. If you are interested in university towns, go to Salamanca in the region of Castille, full of cathedrals and gothic architecture, an idyllic site for unique destination weddings.
- Spain is considered “the new France” when it comes to gastronomy. Some of the best restaurants in the world (pioneers of “avant-garde” cuisine) are in Spain.
