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.
