So you’ve decided to have a destination wedding in Malta… What an amazing place to choose for what is surely going to be one of the best days of your life!

Now, chances are you plan to bring a bunch of your friends and family with you, and we’re sure you’ll want them to have a great time while they’re here. So, how do you handle that responsibility while also managing the vital elements associated with your wedding day?

Well, worry not! We’ve put together some tips on how you can ensure your guests have a great time – both on the day itself, as well as in the days leading up to your wedding.

  • If your guests are staying in a hotel, then it is a good idea to organise a nice relaxed brunch or a drinks reception, there for all of them the day after they arrive (if not, you can still organise something at one of the stunning high-end hotels and restaurants found around Malta). It’s a very enjoyable way for everyone to meet and exchange pleasantries while doing something that pretty much everyone likes – eating and drinking!
  • Malta is blessed with good weather during most of the year. If you intend organising your wedding between, say, May and October, you can be fairly sure that the weather will be lovely. So why not make the most of the outdoorsy life that it is possible to have here but getting your guests down to the beach? During the day, they can enjoy themselves while sunbathing and swimming (just be sure that they apply sun cream liberally and that they stay out of direct sunlight between noon and 4pm during the months of July and August, though, or you might have some people dropping out of the wedding festivities because of sun stroke!). In the evening, what could be better than getting your guests to bond over a barbecue while being serenaded by the waves crashing upon the shore? Sheer bliss!
  • Apart from Malta’s fantastic climate, the fact that the island is surrounded by the crystal-clear waters of the Mediterranean is definitely another plus if you want to organise something special for your loved ones. You can charter a private boat or gullet, including food and drink and, even, entertainment if you wish. Your guests are bound to have the experience of a lifetime as they lounge about onboard or dive into the gorgeous blue sea.
  • Malta is steeped in history, and its heritage greets you practically everywhere you go. The capital city of Valletta, for example, has been described as an outdoor museum. The old capital of Mdina is breath-taking too, not to mention the various prehistoric sites and temples that dot the Maltese Islands. If your guests are interested in the past there are a plethora of excursions that you can book for them which will take them on a journey to days gone by. It will make their stay that much more interesting and unique.

  • Firstly, I just wanted to say how lovely it was meeting you, Mauro and the rest of your team and to thank you. Both Andre and I were so impressed with everything you did for Annez and Gio's beautiful wedding on the Salt Pans in Gozo - every detail was taken care of so thoughtfully and we were absolutely blown away by the venue, and of course how it was setup and dressed for their wedding day! It was simply breath-taking and that light (honestly, Andre and I could not get enough of it, which you may have noticed!!). You and your team took such good care of Annez, Gio and the wedding party and nothing was too much trouble. I especially liked your approach to the bride as its very similar to my own (that you are present and in the background, never rushing or stressing the bride or the bridal party). And thank you also for driving me to the Salt Pans - it certainly made it less stressful for me and I really appreciate that! As as for the venue at night - now that really had the 'wow' factor - absolutely magical, both for the guests and the lenses on our cameras :-)

  • Excellent. Nothing but Praise for Petra, Mauro and all the team at I DO KNOT. We celebrated our ruby wedding anniversary in Malta and I DO KNOT arranged everything for us and our 18 guests from Ireland and England. Such hard work and professionalism provided us with a unique 're proposal event' full church service, hotel, entertainment events etc. The I DO KNOT team were there for us, for all the whole 2 weeks and made it such a wonderful event that will never be forgot by the whole party. Feel free to ask them for more details of our functions they provided and you will see exactly how good they are and what such nice people they are and clearly a credit to the people of Malta. They deserve the awards they have achieved so far and Im sure there will be many more.

  • I would recommend Petra and her "I Do Knot" team to everyone! As getting married in Malta was a really last minute decision, Petra was super fast in providing us with best options and deals! I reached out to few companies, but Petra was outstanding and stood out right away! Could not be more thankful. And this comes from a wedding planner herself. If I trusted our day to her, anyone can!

  • I cannot recommend Petra Gasan and her I Do Knot team highly enough! Petra planned the perfect fairytale wedding for us in Malta last month. We are so happy we had Petra as our wedding planner, from start to finish she was there, answering every question promptly, taking in our vision of our wedding and our ideas and coming up with great suggestions and ideas herself. Petra suggested the perfect church and reception for our big day, and organised every detail of our wedding faultlessly. Our guests were so impressed with Petra and her team on the day of our wedding, as were we, as she co ordinated everything without a hitch. It was a relaxing and stress free day as Petra and her team dealt with everything and left us with nothing to worry about. We are delighted with our wedding and have great memories of our special day to look back upon thanks to Petra, we could not have done it without her ! :-)
