Spanish Ceramic Tiles for Weddings

OK so no glitter or sparkle but lots of love for Spanish ceramics :)

We have used Spanish tiles for table numbers before in our weddings which we love.

 But this year we are taking it one step further and have sourced a fabulous ceramic tile maker in Seville who is making us some gorgeous handmade Spanish tiles as favours for guests.

We are using them as place names and displayed as table seating plans. 

One of our couples have designed their personal wedding tile based on a Moroccan design which we have sent to our supplier to be copied into an authentic original ceramic tile as favours for their guests. 

This is a fabulous idea for our Destination Weddings as it is easily transported back home and we don´t think these gorgeous tiles will be put in a drawer, we can imagine them being displayed proudly in the kitchen, perhaps as a spoon rest, on the wall as a piece of art or even used as coasters.

We wanted to share our Spanish tile inspiration board with you as I am personally interested in the colours that have become dominant having put these images together which are the terracotta and deep Mediterranean blues.  

These colours, however, are so reminiscent of Eighties interior decoration trends but added as an accent into a palette of whites, ivories, deep magenta pinks and soft greys provide an interesting and exciting colour combination and I can imagine this with lots of vintage ivory lace for a wedding scheme.  It is the unusual colour combinations that shout out style and create very eclectic weddings and this is one of them.

Even combined with a deep olive or a sunflower yellow would work extremely well and these colour schemes are exciting and different, away from the norm which of course is what any designer strives for!

I hope you love our inspirations we share with you and do pop back to see our gorgeous weddings we are designing as they appear on our blog.

Would love to be a guest at one of your weddings, then...Spanish ceramics are my absolute favorite! As a typical tourist years ago, I stopped at virtually every plate, tile, etc. shop because I just couldn't make up my mind which ones to buy! Ended up with 4 small plates now hanging in our dining room, and 4 house number tiles at our front door!
