Couples who wish to get married in Malta are determined to make use of the island’s 3000 hours of sunshine by planning an outdoor wedding. While Malta’s winters are quite mild, its summers are legendary, and couples travel from far and wide to turn their island wedding dreams into reality.
If you’re planning a summer wedding in Malta, here are a couple of things you should look out for.
April and May
April or May tend to be very humid and windy. They are perfect if you’re opting for a day wedding, and don’t mind continuing the reception indoors. Furthermore, nights tend to be a bit chilly, so you really don’t want to force your guests to stay outside.
While June is warmer, it’s always a good idea to have a backup plan and an indoor venue to lean on. However, it’s safe to say that it’s an ideal month for outdoor weddings in Malta. It might be a little bit too hot if you’re planning to start before 4 or 5 pm, but nights are warmer and definitely more tolerable.
July is considered as the peak period of Malta’s summertime. Summer is in full swing, and the chances of rain are very slim. Evenings are comfortable, and outdoor ceremonies and receptions can confidently continue all throughout the night. Make sure that you start planning your wedding well in advance since Maltese venues and suppliers are super busy during this period.
Opt for August if you don’t mind the high humidity and temperatures Malta experiences during this month. If you’re planning an outdoor wedding, start your ceremony later in the afternoon to avoid the scorching August sun. On the other hand, if you’re planning an indoor wedding, make sure that your venue has a functioning air conditioning system. Light snacks, an open bar and plenty of ice cream are a must when it comes to keeping your guests refreshed.
