A Pre-Wedding Visit to the Island
We strongly recommend you plan a trip to the island before the big day. Seeing Ibiza wedding venues first hand is invaluable and you can meet prospective wedding suppliers while you are here to.
Take the opportunity to chat with Ibiza wedding planners face to face to bounce around ideas. There’s also lots of other fun wedding things to do! Consider meeting Ibiza caterer’s or cake makers to sample some wedding food ideas (YUM!), have a hair and makeup trial and speak with your Ibiza photographer and videographer.
It is so much easier to be on the island to explore your options and see them for yourself. Try and come around the same time of year you plan to get married. This helps to to really get a feel for what your day will be like.
What is The Best Time to get Married in Ibiza?
Choosing what time to get married in Ibiza really comes down to what type of wedding you desire and when it’s convenient for you to get away. In July and August it’s the high season so there can be a higher price for accommodation and flights; it’s also very hot. Most people choose to get married in Ibiza from May-October due to the weather and partly because many places close down in the winter months. A winter wedding in Ibiza would be absolutely beautiful though (better than a winter in the UK that’s for sure)!
Here at Dream Captures we get most of our bookings in May, June and September, dates fill up fast so get in touch with us to find out if we are available on your date. Our photographer Tasha got married in Ibiza in October 2018, luckily the weather was perfect but the week before and after the big day was stormy and cold!

Wedding Transport in Ibiza
Getting your guests from A to B is a key ingredient that’s easy to overlook. In the summer season, taxis can be limited. 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, hence making everything smoother on the day. Ibiza is an island where they tend to be a little laid-back regarding timing!

Who is going to Conduct the Wedding Ceremony in Ibiza?
A very important part of your wedding day that can be easily forgotten whilst planning is the person marrying you. No, we don’t mean your partner but someone to lead your wonderful wedding day!
The celebrant will be in your wedding photos and video, and it’s important to pick one that mirrors your style and makes you feel comfortable. It’s no fun having someone straight-laced if you like to joke around. Equally, you don’t want someone attempting stand-up comedy if this isn’t your thing!
Luckily, we have worked with lots of enchanting celebrants in Ibiza and rest assured the right one will be waiting for you. We have listed some options here.
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 great Ibiza florist. Looking online and in magazines is awesome inspiration. Pinterest is perfect for this! Think about what colours, aromas and styles you like to therefore create your perfect ambience. Keep in mind that some flowers may not be possible depending on the season. Some current trends include coupling your flowers with fruit or herbs – who would have thought! From contemporary to more traditional styling the options are endless. And don’t forget about the arch at the end of the aisle!
Also be sure to check out the flower walls. They are great for having photos in front of.
