Frequently Asked Questions.
- What is the dress code?
For the Belgians: normal wedding attire. Funny socks are strongly encouraged. Ties are totally optional, but bow ties will get you bonus points, as well as flower crowns. No hats. Flat sandals might make more sense in the grass than high heels.
For the Spaniards: casual wedding clothes. Pinguin suits (rokkostuum/jaquet) are only allowed for pinguins. Funny socks are strongly encouraged. Ties are totally optional, but bow ties will get you bonus points, as well as flower crowns. Flat sandals might make more sense in the grass than high heels. Also, Belgians do not wear tocados.
For the internationals: a nice short dress with high heels or sandals will do for women, while a suit (with or without tie) will do for men. If you don’t own a suit, don’t buy one especially for us. But maybe also don’t wear jeans.
- What will the weather be like?
Let us have a look in our crystal ball. July 1st will be sunny and warm. Somewhere. We are sure of it.
- Will there be alcohol?
- I want to drink. How do I get back home safely?
There will be a shuttle between the wedding and Hostel Snuffel in the centre of Bruges (see also here). Don’t drink and drive!
- Will this be the best party ever?
- Speeches? Funny sketches? etc etc?
Yes, please! While it might not be a custom to do speeches or other things in Spanish weddings, it is in Belgium. Moreover, we want to have a small and personal wedding full of love, and what better way to achieve that by some personal touches from our guests?
The only thing we ask, is that you let Els – the person in charge on the big day – know what your plan is, so she can coordinate everything. She also knows which (technical) things are available in the venue, and she speaks Dutch and English (we’re sorry, no Spanish).
