Mallorca Wedding

Mallorca Wedding 2
For many couples a Mallorca Wedding is a dream come true, and for people who have visited this beautiful Mediterranean island, that should come as no surprise. It’s not only the sun, sea and sand that make Mallorca an ideal place to celebrate a wedding, but it’s also the modern facilities, stunning venues and easy flight connections. It’s no wonder that Mallorca is a very popular destination for people to come and take their wedding vows.

A Mallorca wedding can be anything from a small intimate affair to a large and extravagant party. The island can accommodate any kind of event. Old imposing churches, cliff top altars, sea side terraces, and quaint mountain villages; a couple wanting to get married here just needs to imagine their perfect day for it to become a reality.

When considering a Mallorca wedding remember that Mallorca is home to one of Europe’s busiest airports, so that getting your friends and family over to share in your special day should not be difficult. The island enjoys more than 300 days of sunshine a year, so you don’t need to plan your wedding for the high season months of July and August either; take advantage of cheaper prices and set a date in the quieter months.
