Argentina is every bride’s dream. Ever since we’ve branched out to provide Argentinian businesses with the option of building out their event offering by renting Tentickle tents, we’ve had the privilege or working hand in hand with some of the foremost wedding suppliers in the business. All we can say is, the rest of the world has some serious catching up to do because Argentinian weddings set the bar high! In fact, it might not be amiss to say that there is some serious trailblazing going on over here.
Here are a few of our favourite Argentinian wedding ideas to inspire your own:
Flipping the Script
Argentina enjoys incredible weather for a large part of the year, so it’s no big surprise that bridal parties often choose to host their receptions outdoors. However, until recently, the location of these events were a little limited – if you wanted things to run smoothly you had to book your event at an existing venue. Now, with the advent of Tentickle Tents, the sky is truly the limit. Argentinians are getting married in meadows, deserts, on windswept cliffs, you name it! Increasingly, couples are also choosing to get hitched in locations that have a special meaning – the place they first shared a kiss, saw their first sunset, etc. It is small touches like these that make a wedding really special.
Argentina is situated in a water-scarce region of Latin America and the new generation is known for making water-wise lifestyle choices. This includes getting creative with centrepieces at weddings. Fresh flowers are traditional, yes, but conscious consumers realise that the supply chain that brings it to their wedding tables uses a lot of water. As such, many couples are opting for alternative decoration options such as large groupings of different sized candles; arrangements of fruit and vegetables that can be reused or donated after the wedding; or even fun options such as neon-sprayed figurines and origami sculptures suspended from the roof.
FUN FACT: Argentinians love weddings so much that they even throw fake ones! No kidding – after a group of Argentinian friends got tired of waiting for the next wedding to roll around, they hosted the first ‘falsa boda’. This went on to become a major trend with younger Argentinians who want to dress up, dance, and have a good time without having to put a ring on it (just yet).
These are just a few of the many exciting wedding ideas we’ve encountered in Argentina.
