To cheer you up at the start of the week we’d like to plant some ideas about having a wedding in Malta. This lovely island has a great array of potential wedding venues, and celebrating here makes a great opportunity to have your honeymoon in the same place (another advantage of a destination wedding!). Lots of things to do for you and your guests- go shopping and exploring in Valetta or take a trip around the harbor in one of the traditional dghajsa boats, so colourful and pretty! Or just relax in the Mediterranean sun, with an average temperature is 18ºC  on the island.

We focus on two different types of venues in Malta and have a few tips and ideas for those who are thinking of planning a wedding here. Destination Wedding Malta

Palazzo Parisio

I was at a very impressive wedding in this baroque style palace situated in the town of Naxxar. The ceremony was held in the beautiful ballroom filled with ornate gilded plasterwork. The Palazzo Parisio also has beautiful landscaped gardens out the back. The upstairs ballroom leads to a hall which opens out onto a balcony from which you can look down on the gardens. I believe they often shoot film scenes at this venue and I can see why! The ballroom can hold 120 guests for a meal- by combining rooms or having dinner in the garden you could possibly fit up to 400.Wedding in Malta Wedding in MaltaWedding in Malta Getting Married in Malta

The Westin Dragonara

If you’re looking for something a little bit more holiday resort-style, the Westin Dragonara is a beautiful hotel situated right on the bay in St Julien’s with its own private beach. The ballroom can accommodate up to 400 for a seated banquet. There are other areas for a smaller number of guests including the Castilian and Pavillion Halls, the Bedoin Bar, Quadro Veranda and the Reef Club Sundeck. Ceremonies could be held on the beach or in the Sunken Garden.

Local Information

Fireworks are big in Malta. As well as having local companies which produce them, Malta has a fireworks festival at the end of April in Valetta. This is held to to celebrate their accession to the EU in 2004. If you are looking for something a little different, you could have a firework display on your wedding night- they are pricey but for a short display can be affordable. This company has ‘do it yourself’ wedding fireworks that can be ordered online, starting from €127 for a 5 minute display. Get your groom to take charge or put one of his best men on the job, they would only love it!Wedding in Malta Wedding in Malta

This site gives helpful information on the formalities and paperwork involved when getting married in Malta (actually it has loads of lists of vendors, wedding planners, beauticians, musicians etc so I would recommend having a look!). Finally, why not make a must see list for your guests that will be traveling to your wedding? It is such a pretty island!
