How to choose the best wedding venue in Malta?

Updated: May 16, 2023

There are many elements that make up the perfect wedding day. One of the most important is of course the place for the wedding you choose. There are more and more places where you can organize your wedding, and unfortunately the choice is becoming more and more difficult. In order to make your search a little easier, you should remember about the basic things that are important when choosing a venue in Malta. What should you follow when choosing a wedding venue and what should you pay special attention to?

Budget for the renting of the wedding venue - the decisive argument.

It is very important to have a general idea of the budget you want to spend on the various elements of your wedding. This is also the case if you are looking for a place for your wedding. You and your partner should have a budget for the wedding before the search begins. Believe that this will make the search easier for you. When it comes to the budget, pay attention to what is included in the price of renting the place.

Availability of the wedding venue.

The truth is that you have to choose a place for your wedding even two years before the wedding. In less extreme cases - one year before the wedding. This is a very long time. However, if you want to arrange your wedding in your dream place, and not in the first better one with free time, this is the reality. For impatient people like me, waiting so much time for a free date is a shame. After all, you would like to organize everything as soon as possible. But when you're in a hurry, the devil is happy! Believe me, it takes a lot of time to organize everything related to the wedding and even these two years of waiting for the halls will quickly get you started. And you will manage to get it all to the last button without any stress.

Guest list - adjust the place to the number of invited guests.

Before you choose a place for your wedding, it is also necessary to specify the number of people you plan to invite. In this way, the scope of your search should be narrowed down. After all, why go and see the room for 500 people if you plan to invite only 150 people? There are a lot of places for more and less people and there is a lot to choose from. However, you should think about which group you will be looking for. If you are planning a pompous wedding for at least 300 people, mark on the map the places that offer such a large area. If you are planning a modest and family celebration for a 50-100 people, why not consider renting a room in your favorite restaurant or small place? Everyone will find something for themselves, but the first one should determine where you want and should look.

Style and theme in which you want to organize everything.

Can you imagine a rustic wedding with hay bales in an elegant ballroom with crystal chandeliers? Yes, I know, neither do I. The atmosphere and style of the place where you want to organize the celebration is also very important during your search. If you already know what style you are planning the whole day in, it's great - because you know where you should look. If not, it's better, if you do it before choosing and looking for a wedding venue, because it will make this task much easier for you. Unless you have no problem with matching the style to the chosen venue, then this point does not apply to you at all. However, if you want to have at least a minimal control over how the decorations will look like, etc. then consider now what style is closest to your heart and in such an atmosphere look for a place where the wedding is to take place.

Location of the place of the ceremony.

Wonder if you'd rather have a wedding in the city center or on the outskirts of town? How far will you have to travel from the church to the wedding venue and how much will it cost? Do you care about nice, idyllic views or is it not important for you? Are there any accommodation facilities in the area that would be useful for visitors? Location may not be the most important, but it is an important aspect when planning the whole event. Consider together what elements related to the location are important to you and consider them when looking for a place for your wedding.

Additional amenities.

What will be the amenities, it depends only on your needs. Remember them when you talk to the owner of the wedding venue. You can pay attention to aspects such as:

- Air conditioning (very important during summer weddings!),

- adapting the place to the needs of children,

- disabled and elderly people,

- event management,

- lightening,

- number of parking spaces,

- choice between different types of tables and chairs,

- a separate smoking room,

- garden or terrace,

- lodging for guests.

The amenities offered by wedding venues can be exchanged endlessly. Making a list of things that are important to you when choosing a place for your perfect Maltese wedding will make your search easier.

How to choose the best place for a wedding?

All the elements that I described above make up the selection of the perfect wedding place. Which one you choose depends solely on your needs and preferences. If you take into account all the factors that are above and visualize exactly the place you are looking for, it will make this task much easier for you. Instead of visiting all the wedding places in the area, it is better to make a list of those that really interest you and match your expectations. Good luck!
