What does a wedding in Mallorca cost?


For a lot of bridal couples it can be difficult to estimate the cost of a wedding. We recommend for events in the Balearic Islands, this estimate should be done in conjunction with an experienced planner. For example, flowers are significantly more expensive on the islands as they need to be flown in. Other increased costs such as catering on the islands must also be considered. This is where our experience can be a big help.

Nevertheless, a wedding in Mallorca or Ibiza does not necessarily has to be massively expensive. There are many ways to reduce costs so you stay within your budget. These could include omitting certain extras that are not crucial to you. Besides, if you marry on the island its something very special anyway and striking the perfect balance is always achieveable.

Brief cost overview:

It is our experience that guests usual cover the cost of their flight and accommodation themselves.

The costs of renting a Finca with several bedrooms (e.g. 7) is around 500,- € per night in low season. This corresponds to a double room price of less than 100,- € per night. Please note that the minimum stay is 3 nights or longer for these prices.

Catering including drinks is usually 80,- € per person, depending on the location. If we provide you with a caterer that includes equipment on site at your Fnca or in one of the popular wedding locations such as the Son Marroig, this will be minimum 140,- € per person.

Other services range from:

Speaker: from 700,- to 1.500,- €
Bridal styling: from 250,- €
DJ: from 1.000,- €
Live music at wedding: from 450,- € (wedding singer with playback, bigger ensembles on request)
Bridal bouquet: from 80,- €
Wedding photographer: from 1.200,- €

Good to know!


Getting married on the beach

Many couples dream of a beach wedding in Majorca or Ibiza however there are many other exciting possibilities . These may include your own private wedding ceremony on a specially booked Finca with hotel on site. With a little luck, you may even get the penthouse suit thrown in as a gesture from the Finca owners! We have an endless list of amazing ideas waiting for you.

Things you need to keep in mind

Most of the beaches on the islands are public. It is therefore unfortunately not possible to cordon off a section of the beach for a wedding ceremony or party. Weddings without permission on the beach are illegal on the islands and even small non-approved ceremonies can be shut down with a large penalty by the police. Through our local contacts we occasionally have the opportunity to get a permit for a beach wedding from the respective City Hall (Ayuntamiento). Unfortunately, these permits can be hard to get and one cannot always rely on this.

That’s why we work with selected beach clubs and unique wedding locations that offer special private beach weddings.

During the main season July & August we recommend that you plan your wedding for after 6pm to avoid the crowds and hot midday sun. Partying into the night is of course the Spanish way of life !

Wedding party until the morning

Here on the islands noise pollution is taken very seriously by officials. If you want a location which has a concession for a wedding party until after midnight, you need to get prior permission to avoid stiff punishments. We recommend a location outside urban areas to avoid any potential problems. Some of our favourite locations for example include the lovely old romantic manor house in the Tramontana mountains or other remote places on the island.

The buildings on the coastline are build far too closely to make this an option.

Civil wedding on the islands

Civil marriages are only available for residents. Although this does not fit with EU regulations, local authorities in Mallorca do not make exceptions unfortunately.

Church wedding – open-air

A Catholic wedding only is possible in a consecrated church. Protestant weddings, however, can easily take place in open-air. We maintain close contact with the Catholic and the Protestant community. Please note that both churches are not funded through church taxes. The respective wedding fees need to be paid in form of a “donation“ starting at around 800,- €.
