our partners in crime!
Ibiza is a small island – where everybody knows everybody! And thanks to our long-years in business we are able to share our little black books of trusted suppliers with you!
Our recommended suppliers are all local to the island and will fit the criteria you are looking for, which is, the perfect blend between “relaxed vibe” and professionalism. They have all given us happy couples and we would recommend them for your special day with our eyes blinded!
Also, for the purpose of making your planning an easier task, we built this section in a “user-friendly” way so that you are able to come back and easily scroll your way through to the next vendor in your “action list”.
We look forward to receiving all your thumbs up for this!! Show your support by following us on Instagram!
Please note that suppliers have not been listed in any particular order
enjoy the planning!
Set your timings
The very first thing you need to determine when starting off your planning is setting your timelines. Believe us, this will save you a lot of time! At Païssa we include these in your catering quote. But the way to go about this is by first finding out what your venues finishing time is. And then, you just need to create these with a "back-to-front" approach. Here is how long we recommend you allowing to each part:
Welcome drinks: 30 minutes
Ceremony: 30 minutes
Post Ceremony Reception: 1.5 hours
Dinner meal: 1.5 hours to 2 hours depending on your menu and number of people
Speeches: 30 minutes (no longer)
Sunset time: factor this in if you are having a Païssa wedding as its an event in itself!
Dancing, DJ and Open Bar: 3, 4 or 5 hours.
So this will give you something like this:
4.00 PM - Guests arrive at your wedding venue
4.00 PM - 4.30 PM - Blessing of your marriage
5.00 PM - 6.30 PM - Post-ceremony drinks & canapes
6.30 PM - 8.30 PM - Dinner service
8.30 PM - 9.00 PM - Speeches and cake cutting (this can happen earlier too!)
9.00 PM - 1.00 AM Open bar & dancefloor (4 hours)
1.00 AM Guests departure
Tips: in order to ensure you're always on budget and that your time is used efficiently, we recommend you determine your hours of bar from the very beginning. This will avoid you having to get back to suppliers at a later date with any schedule changes! Use the above to determine timings now and stick to them throughout. If you are not sure about an extra hour of bar and DJ service, then simply leave the gap as an option (finish at midnight) and maybe decide closer to the time if you do want or can afford that extra hour.
Notes: compared to other destinations, it may seem that your wedding in Ibiza starts "late" but earlier start to 3 PM are not recommended due to the heat. Plus, there is no "moving" time to factor in from reception to venue. For church weddings, you will need to check with the church for their hours of service and then continue the above recommendations factoring in the time from the church to your venue (minimum 1 hour).
