For a truly memorable day to remember, we have prepared this Ibiza Destination Wedding Guide. Read on for tips to help you with all of your Ibiza wedding planning…
So you have decided to get married in Ibiza? GOOD CHOICE! Ibiza is one of the most beautiful islands in the Mediterranean with stunning sunsets, the most incredible food and perfect weather conditions. Destination weddings are great for getting everyone together in holiday mode. Everyone is always so chilled and happy.
Plan an Ibiza pre-wedding visit
You wouldn’t buy a wedding dress without trying it on first would you? We highly suggest you plan a trip before the big day to look at Ibiza wedding venues and meet your suppliers. It’s good to chat with your wedding planner face to face and there’s lots of other fun wedding things to do! Consider meeting the caterer to sample the food (YUM!), having a hair and makeup trial and speaking with your photographer and videographer. Deciding on the finer details are all great experiences that will get you even more excited for your Ibiza wedding! Try and come around the same time of year you plan to get married to see how busy the island is. It helps to see how the is weather and lighting is too.
Select the best time to get married in Ibiza
This really comes down your budget and preferences. In high season (July/August) it’s hotter, busier and more expensive, but this is the traditional time for school holidays. This might really appeal to you or perhaps you want to come when it’s not so busy. Plus the temperatures are much more forgiving. Keep in mind that from October to March many places in Ibiza start to close so it may limit your choices. Still, there are still some great options at this time of year. Ibiza in winter can be absolutely breath taking.
Hire an Ibiza Wedding Planner

Who is going to marry you?
A key part of your wedding day that can be overlooked is the person actually marrying you. No, we don’t mean your partner but someone to lead your Wedding day! The celebrant will be on your wedding video, and it’s important to pick one that mirrors your style. It’s no fun having someone super straight-laced if you like comedy. Equally, you don’t want someone telling too many jokes if this isn’t your personality! Luckily, we have worked with lots of different Celebrants in Ibiza. We have listed some options here.
Choose the perfect Ibiza wedding venue
There are so many beautiful wedding venues in Ibiza to choose from to represent your personal style. Maybe you want to walk down the aisle with your feet barefoot in the sand on one of Ibiza’s beautiful beaches, or you prefer a stunning garden in the countryside? There are literally hundreds of Ibiza wedding venues for you to choose from. To take out some of the guesswork, we have prepared a selection of our favourites. There is no best wedding location in Ibiza as they all really have their own magical charm. See some of Ibiza’s most beautiful wedding venues here.

Be entertained with Ibiza’s huge selection of performers, musicians and bands
Ibiza is home to some of the best performers, bands, dancers, singers, magicians and entertainment in the world. There are too many to list so be sure to speak to your venue or wedding planner for recommendations. We absolutely adore Lovely Laura and Ben Santiago for a live Dj and saxophone experience if you are lucky enough to be able to book them! Fire shows also look amazing, and there are lots of acrobatic performances available too! You can organise specific children’s entertainment as well, to really spoil the kids. If you want any tips please do not hesitate to ask us.
Ibiza Flowers that smell as good as they look
There are various suppliers of wedding flowers in Ibiza. You can speak to your venue or wedding planner to select a credible Ibiza florist. It is best to look online and in magazines for inspiration. Pinterest is awesome for this! Think about colours, aromas and styles you like to therefore create your perfect ambience. From contemporary to more traditional styling the options are endless. Keep in mind some flowers may not be possible depending on the season.
Getting from A to B
Getting you and your guests around the island is a key ingredient that’s easy to overlook. In the main season, taxis can be few and far between. Also, depending on the location of your wedding, it’s a good idea to have minibuses, or other transport pre-arranged. You will find this will ease your mind about everyone being on time, therefore making everything a little more smooth on the day. Ibiza is an island where there is a very laid-back attitude to timing! Plus, let’s not forget your personalised Ibiza wedding transport! Your carriage awaits… See Ibiza transport options here.
Your pre and post wedding home from home
Whatever the budget and wherever the chosen location, there is sure to be the perfect Ibiza hotel, apartment or villa for you and your guests. From comfortable family-friendly Ibiza apartments to 5-star hotels, private villas and agroturismo options, you are destined to find the perfect Ibiza accommodation. Hiring a villa is a great option because you can be away from the crowds and have all of the bridal party staying together. If you want to be a little closer to the action, a hotel may be a better option. Many wedding venues also offer accommodation on site, like Hostel La Torre, Hacienda, Me Ibiza and Atzaro. We strongly suggest you consult with your wedding planner or venue for the best options.
