From lush gardens to period properties, and hotels to sea-side lidos, couples in Malta have many options when it comes to choosing the right venue for their wedding. Yet, the price tag for some of those venues may now always be ideal for brides and grooms planning a wedding in Malta on a tight budget.
As with most things, a little bit of planning and shopping around can help you save quite a bit of money… But here’s some other nuggets of advice that could help you spend even less.
1. Avoid Peak Season
Many couples opt for a Saturday wedding in the middle of June or July, and it’s easy to figure out why. But, with those options being so popular, the price ends up being much higher than at other times of the year. So, by choosing to hold your wedding on a different day or a different month, you could get the venue of your dreams for less. Having said that, keeping in mind the weather, alternative arrangements should the weather let you down, and your guests’ schedules is also key to ensuring that your wedding is a success.
2. All-Inclusive Wedding Venues in Malta
Wedding packages are not that uncommon and, sometimes, getting everything from the same company can save you big bucks and a lot of time. So, ask around, compare prices and look out for venues that can also sort out food, drink and all the other extras needed for your big day. When doing this, it is important to also check the quality of the products, however. After all, owning a great venue doesn’t automatically mean that the food will be top-notch.
3. Borrow a Property
Of course, we understand that this may not be possible for everyone – or even everyone’s cup of tea – but hear us out: Do you have family or friends that have a large country house or a big garden that could host a wedding? Then consider asking them to lend it to you for your wedding day. Alternatively, ask if they would rent it to you for a reduced price or in exchange for fixing or renovating a part of it…
4. Think Smaller
There are dozens of small venues around Malta and Gozo that are absolutely breath-taking and that can host small weddings – including a number of museums, historical sites and restaurants. The price tag for these can sometimes be much smaller than that of larger, better-known venues, while still offering a magical setting!
