Ibiza Wedding Venue Questions. The 10 Things to Know Before you Book.

Ibiza Wedding Venue Questions. The Things You Need to Know…

ibiza wedding venue questionsFirstly congratulations! If you’re reading this, then you’ve got engaged and you’re thinking of getting married in Ibiza. With that choice I already know you have impeccable taste!  One of the first things, if not the very first thing to book is your venue. This choice should reflect you and your personalities and also be amazing for your guests. So not much to ask then! Ibiza is bursting with beautiful wedding venues. Beaches, Clifftops, Gardens, Villas, there’s something for every couple. But how do you choose which one is best for you? And especially when you’re so far away? These are my top 10 things to bear in mind when making your choices, whether your’re here visiting in person or deciding online. No matter what type of wedding you’re dreaming of these are the things you must know…

 

The Ibiza Wedding Venue Questions to consider…

Location 

Not only does your Ibiza Wedding Venue need to wow you, but you also need to find it! From personal experience there are a fair amount of places which although amazing require lots of map work and sturdy vehicles to get to them. If you are visiting in person (which I recommend) then you should time how long it takes to arrive at each potential venue. Was it difficult to find? Remember your guests will not arrive prepared for a cross-country hike! 

Flexibility

Not surprising to see this one move up the list! It’s an essential that’s super important at the moment and going forward. Should you be unable, or indeed uncomfortable about travelling once your date comes around what policy does your venue have in place? It’s important to ask and have clear exactly how many times you can postpone, what the terms are regarding this, and how soon before the day you can do this. Will there be a fee or will you lose a deposit already paid. Ibiza’s most popular and professional venues will have no problem helping you with these queries.

Hygiene & Safety

We’re all very aware of new levels of cleanliness and hygiene and your Ibiza Wedding Venue is no exception. Important questions to ask are what protocols will be in place for guests on arrival, what can they expect and how will things play out during the day. A quick scan around should tell everything you need to know but there’s no harm asking and having things clear.

Transport Options

No matter how tempted you are to ‘just let everyone get taxis’, it’s never a good idea. Ibiza has a notoriously unreliable taxi system which can’t be pre-booked. This often results in late arrivals delaying the ceremony and a large number of people stranded at the end of the night. Not good. Therefore your Ibiza wedding venue needs to be accesible by coach or at least mini bus. All professional venues & planners will have excellent transport contacts and be able to easily arrange for you and your group to arrive and leave with zero hassle.

Accessibility

It’s likely you’ll have a mixture of families and older guests at your Ibiza Wedding. Will they be able to move easily around the venue? Is it safe? Whilst a cliff-side stunner might be your dream, would your guests with children feel the same?
Make sure you check where each part of the day will take place and how guests will move between each area. 

Ceremony Area

Where is this? Is there shade and will it be peaceful when your ceremony takes place? Some Ibiza Wedding Venues are next to big hotels which can get very lively of an evening. Your viewing might take place in the morning so you may miss how noisy things can get for your ceremony and reception. Be sure to ask about this. 

Photo Opportunities

It’s important to know when your wedding photographer will have time to take pictures. If you’re having group shots done with family and friends, when does this usually take place and where. Also it’s essential to know where your couple shoot will be and how much time you’ll have for photos. Is it easy to access the beach if there is one? These are all good things to know about your venue. 

Exclusivity

Is your Ibiza Wedding Venue just for you and your guests? To guarantee a perfect day it’s essential to not share it with sand-covered randoms! Just my opinion but good to know in advance what the situation is and if you must pay extra to ensure you have the venue to yourselves. 

Ceremony Timings

What time will your ceremony take place? Options are usually either a later start, around 6pm with a 1am finish or an early afternoon start with a midnight finish. Your group may include lots of families or be purely you and your mates. Will you want to go on somewhere else afterwards? These are all important things to consider when choosing your Ibiza Wedding Venue.

Venue Audio

Or how loud can we go?! It’s surprising to many, but Ibiza has some pretty strict noise laws and a local police force happy to swoop in and shut down a noisy party. Venues with an indoor party area can offer a decent celebration with good levels of music and sometimes until late. Or you may prefer the sand between your toes and an under the stars vibe… if so then be ready for a midnight finish and lower sound levels.
