We know that planning a wedding can be overwhelming, and planning your dream destination wedding in Ibiza requires even more attention to details! So before you start picking out wedding invitations, check out these 5 tips when putting together your Ibiza dream destination wedding.
Most of the weddings held in Ibiza are actually wedding blessings. This is because Spain is a devoutly Catholic country and only recognises your marriage as legal if you are a member of the Catholic faith or a Spanish resident. If either you or your partner, are Catholics you will be able to marry at one of the island’s churches. Couples who are neither Catholic, nor residents can have a wedding blessing in Ibiza and a civil wedding in their home country before or after coming to Ibiza, but this is not mandatory.
GET PROFESSIONAL HELP
We know that putting together a destination wedding, requires a lot of effort. Dealing with local vendors and scouting the perfect wedding venue might be time-consuming, having professional on-site help will make your life easier, especially if you don’t speak Spanish. A great idea is to hire a wedding planner, someone you can trust and can meet with potential vendors on your behalf and secure the best deals.
PUT LOCAL FOOD OPTIONS ON THE MENU
The food is one of the main parts of the wedding that your guests will remember. One way to truly capture the essence of the island is to create a wedding menu that includes local and delicious food. To have some advice you can ask your Ibiza Wedding Planner, or should you decide to arrange your wedding by yourself, call and speak to residents to see what suggestions they have, and ask if there is a dish or drink that is popular.
TIME IT PROPERLY
Summer season in Ibiza means more crowds, fewer venues available and higher prices. If you choose to get married during high season, make sure to book far in advance. If you pick to get married right before or after the high season, you may be able to save yourself and your guests some money and still enjoy great weather. If you pick the low season, you will make sure to have fewer tourists on the Island and cheaper rates, but your choices might be reduced as not all the venues and vendors are open for business.
PICK THE VENUE
More than just romantic, there’s something magical about saying “I do” against a backdrop of the vast blue sea, or in a beautiful country villa nestled among orange trees and lush pine hills. Ibiza offers a wide range of magical venues to host your special day, just make sure to consider the pros and cons of each type of venue before you make your big decision.
