The ultimate guide to planning a memorable Maltese Wedding

Embarking on the journey of planning a wedding is a thrilling adventure, and what better backdrop than the picturesque island of Malta? Known for its rich history, stunning landscapes, and warm Mediterranean charm, Malta provides an enchanting setting for your special day. In this ultimate guide, we'll take you through the steps of planning a memorable Maltese wedding, from choosing the venue to incorporating local traditions that will make your celebration truly unique.

1. Selecting the Perfect Venue

Malta offers a diverse range of wedding venues, each with its own distinct charm. Consider historical sites like the Mdina Cathedral or a romantic seaside location overlooking the crystal-clear Mediterranean waters. Explore options that align with your vision, whether it's a traditional church ceremony or a beachfront celebration.

2. Navigating the Legal Requirements

Before diving into the wedding preparations, it's crucial to understand the legal requirements for getting married in Malta. Ensure you have all the necessary documentation, including a Notice of Marriage, and familiarize yourself with the residency and waiting period regulations.

3. Embracing Maltese Wedding Traditions

Make your celebration unique by incorporating Maltese wedding traditions. Consider the "għonnella," a traditional Maltese lace shawl worn by the bride, or the symbolic tossing of rice or almonds for good luck. Embrace the local customs to add an authentic touch to your special day.

4. Choosing the Right Time of Year

Malta boasts a Mediterranean climate, making it an ideal wedding destination year-round. However, consider the time of year that aligns with your preferences. Spring and early autumn offer pleasant temperatures, while summer provides long, sunny days for a magical celebration.

5. Working with Local Vendors

Opting for local vendors not only supports the community but also ensures a seamless planning process. From catering services that showcase Maltese cuisine to local florists who understand the island's blooms, collaborating with professionals rooted in Malta enhances the authenticity of your wedding.

6. Crafting a Maltese-Inspired Menu

Malta is renowned for its delicious and diverse cuisine. Work with your caterer to incorporate local specialties into your wedding menu. From fresh seafood to traditional pastries like the renowned pastizzi, offering a taste of Malta will be a delightful treat for your guests.

7. Exploring Pre-Wedding Photoshoot Locations

Take advantage of Malta's breathtaking landscapes for your pre-wedding photoshoot. Explore the charming streets of Valletta, pose against the backdrop of the Blue Lagoon in Comino, or capture romantic moments overlooking the cliffs of Dingli. The options are endless for creating stunning memories.

8. Ensuring Guest Comfort and Accommodation

As you plan your destination wedding, consider the comfort and accommodation of your guests. Malta offers a range of hotels, resorts, and charming guesthouses. Provide information on local attractions and activities to enhance the overall experience for your wedding attendees.

9. Incorporating Maltese Music and Dance

Add a touch of local flair to your celebration by incorporating traditional Maltese music and dance. Whether it's the lively rhythms of the "Għana" or the elegance of the Maltese Waltz, infusing these cultural elements into your wedding festivities will create a vibrant and unforgettable atmosphere.

10. Planning a Seaside Celebration

Given Malta's stunning coastline, consider planning a seaside celebration. Beach weddings offer a romantic and picturesque setting, with the sound of the waves and the golden sunset creating a magical ambiance for your ceremony and reception.

11. Creating Memorable Wedding Favors

Express your gratitude to guests with wedding favors inspired by Malta. Consider gifting local products such as artisanal honey, traditional Maltese nougat, or a bottle of the island's renowned olive oil. Thoughtful and locally inspired favors will leave a lasting impression.

12. Adding a Touch of Maltese Decor

Enhance the visual appeal of your wedding venue by incorporating Maltese-inspired decor. From traditional patterns to colors reflecting the Mediterranean palette, infusing these elements into your floral arrangements, table settings, and overall decor will create a cohesive and culturally rich atmosphere.

13. Organizing Pre-Wedding Excursions

Maximize the destination wedding experience by organizing pre-wedding excursions for you and your guests. Explore Malta's historical sites, take a boat trip to the Blue Grotto, or embark on a wine-tasting tour. These experiences will not only create cherished memories but also showcase the beauty and diversity of the island.

14. Planning for Unpredictable Weather

While Malta enjoys favorable weather, it's wise to plan for unexpected changes. Have a backup plan for outdoor ceremonies, and consider providing shade or fans for guests during warmer months. A well-prepared contingency plan ensures a smooth celebration regardless of the weather.

15. Hiring a Local Wedding Planner

To navigate the intricacies of planning a destination wedding in Malta, consider hiring a local wedding planner. A professional with knowledge of the island's venues, vendors, and regulations can streamline the planning process and alleviate potential stress, allowing you to fully enjoy your special day.


Planning a Maltese wedding is a unique and rewarding experience, combining the romance of a destination wedding with the rich cultural tapestry of Malta. By carefully considering the venue, traditions, and local elements, you can create a celebration that not only reflects your love but also captures the essence of this enchanting Mediterranean island. Embrace the beauty of Malta, and let your wedding be a testament to the magic this destination has to offer.

Beautiful, inspiring couple from the U.K. Emil and Charlotte Burton who had their wedding at the 5 star Hotel, Phoenicia.
