Ibiza wedding venue types

As one of Ibiza’s leading wedding venues, at Païssa d’en Bernat we get to chat to lots of newly engaged couples that tell us how they struggle to find their perfect Ibiza wedding venue. And we can’t deny it – getting through all the options available is not an easy task!

This is why we have decided to make this blog post – to tell you all about Ibiza wedding venues and the types you can expect to find here.

before the venue, do your homework

The difficulty of finding the right wedding venue is finding the perfect balance between your guest list, your budget and your style. But the truth is that you need to really know what your guest list is and what you can spend in order to find the right place for you. 

Start off by envisioning your day. Think if you would rather stay small and intimate, or if you would rather have everyone you know there with you. Work on your guest list and, together with your partner, dot down the names of those people you want to share your big day with. You can also read how to create the perfect guest list.

The key factor for an Ibiza wedding is to know that your numbers will probably not drop too much and that these should not differ by more than 10-15%.

do you maths

Even though figuring out what your budget is at the beginning can be quite a difficult thing to establish – a conversation needs to take place in order to know how far you are willing to go in terms of costs. 

Having a guest list in place and a budget are key elements to start off on wedding planning because most Ibiza wedding venues will speak about costs in terms of “price-per-head”, so with early numbers worked out, it will be easier to decide if a wedding venue is suited or not for you.

decide on a date

Have a good think of when you would like to get married and what works best for you, your family and friends. Instead of picking a date, if you are able to keep flexible, then this will be a plus as some venues will have discounted rates for low-season or mid-week dates, but it is worth narrowing down your preferred dates to 1 or 2 months. 

list out your priorities

What does your dream wedding look like? Is it on the beach, or by a clift, with a sea view, or a sunset? What are those key elements that will make your wedding venue a winner amongst other amazing Ibiza wedding venues. 

Talk to your partner and decide what is important to you. Should it be child friendly? Private? No matter how short that “must-have” list is, make sure you write those key elements down so that when you need to skim your choices, you are able to do this easily and keeping your priorities in mind.

Decide what type of wedding venue works best for you
