HOW MUCH DOES AN IBIZA WEDDING COST ?

This is one of the most common questions couples ask when they start planning their Ibiza wedding. Just how much will this wedding cost us, and will there be any unexpected things to be aware of? Below you’ll find every aspect of an Ibiza Wedding Day and what each element can cost. We are using our own venue as an example so you can also figure out what the cost of a wedding is at Paissa d’en Bernat. Let’s get started!

before the maths, come the lists

 

First things first, the guest list. For this, you will need to work together with your partner to create a list of your must have people, this will give you a good base for calculating your final prices. 

We see all wedding budgets as having 2 clear parts. First you have your fixed costs, the costs that will remain the same whether you are a group of 5, 50 or 100. This will include things such as photography, videography, wedding celebrant, venue hire (for some venues). Then you have the “per-head costs” or variable costs. This will account for the largest sum of your wedding day and will change based on your head-count. This applies to food, drinks, hires and even flowers.

Please note that all the prices should be used as a guide and can differ depending on the professionals you decide to hire for your big day.

Other Costs

Ibiza wedding venue

Each wedding venue works differently. Some work on a per-head cost only, others on a starting price and other on a hire plus a per-head cost. For the purpose of helping couples figure out real numbers, we are using the prices of our wedding venue as a sample. In case you have chosen to go with another wedding venue, please make the adjustments to your budget.

Paissa d’en Bernat hire fee: starting from 2,800€

Rental fee + hire fee (including accommodation): starting at 6,900 Euros

The hire fee usually only accounts for the hire of the venue only. At Paissa d’en Bernat as a part of our hire we include the benches for the ceremony and lectern and all tables and chairs for the reception. Throughout your process I (Cris) will also be helping you and you are always invited to navigate our website which we’ve built with the purpose of becoming a free online wedding planning tool.

Food and drinks

All Ibiza wedding venues operate food and drinks on a per-head cost. At Paissa d’en Bernat our catering prices start at 170 Euros per person. With this per-head cost, you are covered from the start of the event (welcome drinks) up until the end of your dinner and speeches. Therefore this cost covers you on all-day food and drinks, tables, chairs, waiting staff, tableware, and chefs.

Sample costing for 50 people (sunset package): 8,500 € + VAT

In order to cover overheads, we do set a minimum spend on our menus of 8,500€ + 21%VAT (on premium dates this fee is higher). 

Evening open bar

Some venues will offer either an open bar or a paid option. 

At Paissa d’en Bernat we have found that an open bar works best for our guests. 

Our standard bar starts with 3 hours but can go up to a maximum of 5 hours on the day. The cost of this is 25€ + 21% VAT per person, per hour.

Sample costs for the open bar would be (based on 50 people):

3 hours: 3,750 € + VAT

4 hours: 5,000 € + VAT

5 hours: 6,250 € + VAT

On average in Ibiza you can expect to spend between 250 and 350 Euros per person on food and drinks for the day including all hires. Make sure that you factor in all the elements when gathering food and drink costs as some venues will not include tables, chairs, cava for speeches, a free open bar etc.

Please note that at Paissa d’en Bernat we do not offer the option of a cash bar.

Photographer

The cost of an Ibiza wedding photographer will vary depending on the level of experience of the professional and also the final services required. Starting prices for full day coverage start at 1,500 Euros, I personally recommend to my clients that they invest slightly more as these are memories to be treasured forever. A good budget for photography would therefore be around 2,500 Euros.

Videographer This service starts at around 1,000 Euros and can often exceed the cost of the photography due to the extended editing time required to make a wedding video. If the budget does not allow for this, I would suggest allocating more budget for your photographer and saving on this area.

Wedding Celebrant

Ibiza Wedding Celebrants can range from 300 to 1,000 Euros depending on their level of experience and the type of service they offer. At our venue, we have had many brave guests take this job and officiate their friends or family’s ceremony. This saves them a huge cost and can offer the couple the most personal experience.

Wedding flowers and decor

When it comes to wedding flowers and decor – the sky’s the limit! How much you intend to spend on flowers will depend on your style and vision for the ceremony and tables and also how many bridesmaids and ushers you have. There are plenty of ways to economise here but our best advice here is to not under-estimate. Flowers are expensive and they are all imported. Even dried flowers are expensive.

I like to tell my clients to allocate at least 800 Euros for flowers and if they anticipate wanting many specialist flowers such as peonies or named roses, then that figure can reach 2,000 Euros and beyond. It’s worth considering that the cost of flowers isn’t just the product itself but also their delivery, set up, and breakdown. 

Our own recommendation for extra decor at Paissa d’en Bernat is less is more. Our ceremony and dining areas enjoy stunning views and we present the venue in a way that makes full use of our beautiful surroundings, so you may find that beyond personal flowers there’s not much need for many extras.

Sound, dance floor lighting, DJ and entertainment

At Paissa we provided all of these services in-house so that you do not need to worry about finding and hiring third parties. The cost of the sound system for the day and the dancefloor lighting is of 1,200€ + 21% VAT and the DJ cost is 180€ + 21% VAT per hour during your hours of the open bar.

We will use the same sound system for the full day, covering the ceremony, speeches, dance floor and background music.

The price of other forms of entertainment such as guitarists or saxophonists depends on supplier and service, but estimate 350-550 Euros in case you wanted to add one of these elements.

Transportation

Transport for your wedding venue will depend on location and where your guests are based. For us transportation can not be optional and we always book a mini bus service for all guests. Taxis in Ibiza can’t be pre-booked and are notoriously unreliable, sometimes taking hours to arrive if they have other fares they’d rather take ahead of yours. We recommend you allocate 10 Euros per person per journey to get everyone to and from your wedding venue.
