We love watching the new trends to ensure we are always up to date with our wedding styling and tonight I quickly put together this style board with concrete inspirations found on Pinterest.

As the industrial look hit the interiors world a few years ago we adored the polished concrete kitchen worktops and I was pleased to see the use of marble and stone come back with a vengeance as my entire house has marble floors that I never really liked but now they are bang up to trend! (more…)

Sparkly Winter Wedding, Villa El Cid, Marbella

When Elaine and Kevin first contacted us it was to help them style and decorate their wedding day, the rest was pretty much booked from the church ceremony to the cocktail and reception at the villa they had hired for the week and Elaine had been picking my brains during her wedding planning to get some help and direction when she was booking suppliers.


A Pretty Cool Wedding at Castillo de Santa Catalina, Malaga

October 30th, 2015 Posted by Delightful details, Styling Weddings in Spain, Vintage Furniture Hire for weddings in Spain, Wedding Decorations, Wedding Planners Spain, Weddings in Malaga 0 thoughts on “A Pretty Cool Wedding at Castillo de Santa Catalina, Malaga”
I aptly name this a cool wedding as it was so sparkly and fabulous however anything but cool as the temperatures by the afternoon were sizzling, humid and hitting 50 degrees in the courtyard of the stunning Castillo de Santa Catalina in Malaga.

I could not even move without sweating, in fact not moving promoted sweating so kept making excuses to visit Farah and her girls getting ready in their air conditioned rooms!  

That was a treat in itself watching them merrily prepare for the wedding celebrations with their stunningly beautiful outfits and jewellery.

We had been introduced to Farah by Perfect Spanish Weddings to help her style and decorate her wedding day with a beautiful blush and gold theme and were hyperventilating when she sent us photos of her stunning blush wedding dress, it was absolutely beautiful. 

I worked with Farah to design the wedding decor she really wanted but within her budget constraints to achieve the maximum impact, we focused on the florals, which were very important to her, and added a few details to create an overall luxury design for her wedding day.

The beautiful bouquets were created using hydrangeas and roses along with tall centrepieces using the same florals which were placed on top of tall glassware cylinders filled with gold gypsophelia and blush dyed water.

The table seating plan was designed by us using a Hand of Fatima theme decorated with soft pink and gold crystals and we created matching Hand of Fatima paddle fans for the ceremony which can be seen on our Instagram page. A rather dodgy photo taken by me but we try!

 The tables were beautifully dressed with our gold charger plates and we finished the napkins with blush ribbons and individual place cards again with the Hand of Fatima design to compliment the paddle fans and table seating plan.

Finally we also provided props for the dessert table including a blush sequin table cover, pink cake stands and glass apothecary jars.

It was a wonderful day and our thanks to Perfect Spanish Weddings for recommending us to design and decorate Farah’s fabulous wedding and to Jeremy Standley for these gorgeous photos to share with you.

You will be pleased to hear I did not steal any donuts although I was sorely tempted the opportunity did not arise to sneak up and get close to them 🙂

A Beautiful Blush and Mint Wedding at Villa Padierna Hotel

Nothing quite beats the elegance of the Villa Padierna Hotel and for our avid followers you may recall one of our previous weddings at this gorgeous hotel was featured in Style Me Pretty so a wedding combined with this beautiful venue and the stunning Encarnacion Church in Marbella is always going to be a fabulous affair!

Eva and David live in Australia but chose to host their wedding here in Marbella as it is such a great central location for family and friends to travel to from all over the world including Ireland and London with supposedly almost guaranteed sunshine.  

Our famous Mediterranean sun did not show up sadly and was replaced by rain, a hailstorm, lightening and thunder, but I have to admit I loved the more atmospheric feel to the day listening to the thunder whilst working on the flowers in the church.

 Nothing was going to dampen the mood for this gorgeous wedding and brollies were quickly found for everyone at the church.  A beautiful ceremony took place and eventually true to Spain the sun came out again later in the evening and a fabulous party was underway.

We loved the colour combination using a mint green and blush scheme with chevron details and golds and created some beautiful Spanish vintage style stationery to compliment the design from the Save the Dates to the Order of Service booklets, gorgeous flowers and lots of delightful details from gold charger plates to personalised placecards tied to each napkin with mint ribbons, table names set into gold vintage style frames and this fabulous dessert and chocolate treat table.
The icing on the cake, excuse the pun, had to be this fabulous creation from Sweet Things By Fi with the chevron pattern and such beautiful sugar flowers.   We have now stolen this cake design and have it in our shop as we love it so much!
Our thanks to all the suppliers who worked with us at this gorgeous wedding and to Nani De Perez for sharing these beautiful photos.

Our congratulations to Eva and David and cannot believe it is now over two months since your wedding day!

Stylish Ideas for Favours and Weddings in Spain

July 21st, 2012 Posted by About Us, Alice in Wonderland themes, Delightful details, Favours for Weddings, Fun Stuff, spanish wedding themes, Unusual Ideas, Wedding Decorations, Wedding Planning service 0 thoughts on “Stylish Ideas for Favours and Weddings in Spain”
Here at Reviva HQ we have been very busy over the past few months and have created so many new and lovely ideas for our weddings we wanted to start to share these with you as they were such fun and perhaps an idea for you to easily create at your wedding to bring that extra dimension and a bit of fun to the celebrations.
We have and still do candy bars, we just get better everytime, and of course are still famous for our twinkly lights and candles but this year we have had a lot of fun creating very different ideas for our weddings.
Our olive bars have been a huge hit, just buy some large loaves, cut the top off and scoop out, fill with olives, placed on some cut off tree slabs with some gorgeous signs and wooden spoons and treat your guests to an olive bar 🙂  You can give out olive oil and olive favours too to share the Andalucian flavours with your guests!

We now hire out gorgeous lemonade dispensers should you wish to create a fresh lemonade bar, or indeed a pimms bar or a fresh juice bar, complete with paper straws and our very retro glassware this is a refreshing welcome for any hot wedding guest as you welcome them to your ceremony. 
We do stock paper straws and many other gorgeous party items at our shop in Elviria.
Our dressing up boxes have been a huge hit, whether you are having a photo booth or not it is amazing what a glittery hat and large sunglasses can do to your grandfather :)!
We supply dressing up boxes for weddings in vintage style cases full of stupid and fun dressing up things to bring out the child in every guest, we have endless photos of our weddings revisiting their youth :)!
Dancing shoes baskets, we started last year and they continue to be a welcome hit this year for sore feet, supply a basket of flip flops for your guests and they will love you forever. 
I dread to think how many times I have seen guests wobble out the church clutching their gorgeous shoes in their hands.
I think it is due to the heat here and whilst the shoes may feel fine in the UK or Ireland, the heat in Spain makes many peoples feet swell. 
The sight of a dancing shoe basket I think for many of these women I witness must be a godsend!
Our very popular spanish fans are still a must at every ceremony, we can provide plain or decorated fans to match your style of wedding and again are a godsend and a useful accessory for any wedding in Spain.  My advice is give them out at the ceremony and do not keep them for the reception 🙂
For our September weddings we have even more fabulous props and ideas, including fairground attractions, Alice in Wonderland style games, in fact we cannot wait to share all these with you.
Lawn croquet, coconut shies, candy floss, signage and dressing up boxes are all available now to hire from us to make sure your wedding turns into a party that your guests will love and remember.
Add a fun element to your wedding whether it be maracas and castanets to get your guests into the flamenco mood, or perhaps a more elegant foodie experience of hosting an olive bar, lemonade bar or a themed candy bar which again can double up as favours for your guests to take home or just have some serious fun with games, dressing up and chilling in one of our gorgeous Moroccan styled chill outs.

Indian Wedding Inspirations in Marbella

January 24th, 2012 Posted by Indian Weddings, Inspiration Boards, Reviva Weddings Exclusive Weddings, Styling Weddings, Wedding Cakes, Wedding Decorations, Wedding Trends for 2012 0 thoughts on “Indian Wedding Inspirations in Marbella”
As Indian Weddings take Marbella by storm, we thought we would share some of the inspirations we are creating for our weddings. 
The explosion of colours used for Indian weddings are glorious and here we have created a more cohesive look to our weddings by keeping to a heady mix of beautiful colours.
Ivory, gold and red are a hugely popular colour combination, mix this in with a fushsia and yellow and a dash of purple creates a vibrant combination.
We have kept one of our designs to just using a peacock colour theme of purples, turquoises, aquas and golds but throwing in a touch of orange for the reception tables.
There are so many glorious details from floral elephants, embellished gold confetti cones, lots of lots of bling, particuarly this year with the latest rage for metallic wedding cakes and we love the idea of using slightly different textures and fabrics to bring different elements into creating our Indian wedding styles.

Stunning September Weddings in Marbella

September 20th, 2011 Posted by About me, Caterers, Getting Married in Spain, moroccan decorations, Our Weddings, Testimonials, Wedding Decorations, Wedding Planning service, Wedding Suppliers on the Costa Del Sol 0 thoughts on “Stunning September Weddings in Marbella”
I have just realised we are almost at the end of September and I have not created one blog post since August so hugest apologies to all our followers.

Working in the Destination Wedding Industry here in Marbella, we do have incredibly busy months, predominently May, June, July and September. Needless to say September has whizzed past leaving little time for me to indulge in my blogging.

We have been frantically waving our famous magic wands over Andalucia and have some fabulous weddings to share with you over the next few months plus some very exciting news, so do keep an eye out for our announcements coming shortly.

We have been thrilled to again receive many testimonials from our brides and would like to share this one with you received tonight for a wedding we planned, executed and designed at the beginning of September.

I think the importance of this email is that our lovely bride works for one of the largest event companies in London so we were up against a real test of our planning and decoration skills with this fabulous wedding set in a stunning monastery in the hills behind Sotogrande.

Hi Laura and Carla
We really wanted to thank you guys for you amazing hard work and commitment to make the wedding so beautiful and such a success. We absolutely loved every minute of it and are both still on a total high from it all and buzzing.

Every detail was perfect and when we arrived at the both the church and the venue we were really blown away by how fantastic they looked and all those months of work and deliberating had delivered something beyond what we expected.

All our guests remarked on how stunning the venue looked and how fab everything was from the food/drink to the disco and laser lights were, people really felt this was something unique and special and the wedding of all weddings!

Sad that it is all over but we have such fantastic memories and cannot wait to see the photos and videos which we will of course pass onto you.

Thank you for making it such a memorable day.

Very Best Danielle and Ed

Our thanks to Danielle and Ed for choosing us and allowing us to plan, design, decorate and manage this fabulous wedding and we thoroughly enjoyed working with them and their lovely family and wish them a future filled with fun and happy times.
