1. Can I come along with my kids?
This is a tough one to deal with!
The question you should ask yourself is “Will I be ok if my close friends and relatives come along with their children?
Most people will prefer to allow their kids at home so as to have maximum fun. Nonetheless, it’s your big day and whatever you want to make the day memorable, you do it.
Have in mind that some guest will certainly ask you this question.
While the best solution is to leave out kids on your invitation, it may not be the feeling you’ll want your guests to have once they open up their invitations.
A good way to get this point across is the way you address the invitations. Rather than addressing the entire family, let it be directed only to the adults.
2. What’s the dressing code?
To begin with, you should get conversant with the traditional Spanish wedding outfit wording for invites.
It’s always a great idea to make this point very clear from the very first day.
There are a good number of collections out there.
So, you can choose from the variety and inform your guests weeks before the D-day. This will enable them to prepare accordingly.
3. Can I come along with my new lover?
To cut down and/or maintain your budget, you had already reduced your guest list.
For example, your ex wants to come along with his/her new lover? This doesn’t sound good, right? This shouldn’t bother you.
Though you want all you invited guests to have a good time, you shouldn’t go along inviting people out of emotions.
Similar to the no kids option, to avoid drama, you should make it clear.
Tell your ex not to bring his/her lover if you’re not comfortable with it. But, if you have no problem with it, you accept and simply address the invitation with “and partner”!
4. What do you recommend us to do on our trip?
This is very important. Always expect to have this kind of questions.
