Book the best housing
Whether you are celebrating your wedding on the beach or in a hotel or a wedding venue, you will need accommodation for your guests who are coming from far away and who will stay at least a few days on the island. This is not a problem, since Mallorca is a place used to tourism and has different types of accommodation, from hotels to private villas. However, it is very important to book accommodation in advance so that there are no surprises and you can choose the accommodation that suits you best depending on capacity, budget, location and style. Having a wedding planner will allow you to save hours of research and she will offer you the best accommodation option at the best price.
Give your guests indications
If you are getting married in a foreign country, furthermore, an island it is fundamental that you give the information necessary to your guests so that the trip will be the easiest possible. Lots of them will have to take 2 flights, one on the peninsula and the other to the island, to arrive. It is possible that it will not be such a famous place like Madrid or Barcelona, therefore we advise you to create a small dossier so that they can have all the information about accommodation, transportation from the airport, climate, etc.
Touches of mediterranean decoration
And finally we are going to a more beautiful subject, which you will enjoy: the decoration. Although each couple must choose the decoration and style of the wedding that they like the most, celebrating your wedding in Mallorca will likely encourage you to opt for a style more inspired by the sea and the sun. It does not have to be a wedding on the beach with Ibiza style, but some Mediterranean-inspired touches will be ideal. Like this table that we decorated for the wedding of Dmitry and Aurike, with a nice cage with candles and shells, blue glassware and a beautiful white tablecloth, very bright:
