3 themes for your Gibraltar wedding

The wonderful thing for couples choosing weddings in Gibraltar is the incredible choice of venues. Whether you want a casual wedding at the Registry Office or the glamour of a yacht, there’s a venue that can bring your wedding dreams to life. Be inspired by your choice of venue to create a wedding theme that’s beautiful, unique and timeless.

An exotic, natural wedding

If you love the idea of an outdoor, nature-themed wedding then the Alameda Botanical Gardens will provide you with endless inspiration. Pick from a palette of lush greens, hot pinks, eye-catching orange and cool lilac to create gorgeous boutonnieres and bouquets, then pick up the floral theme in details like clutch bags and shoes for your bridesmaids. Pick a simple and elegant white dress and accessorise with a lush floral headdress, and continue the theme through your stationery suite. Don’t forget to research the gardens in various seasons so your chosen colour palette doesn’t jar but is effortlessly complementary.

The height of glamour

The Mons Calpe suite perches right at the top of the Rock, with a backdrop like something from a Hollywood movie, so play up the glamour and elegance of the venue in your wedding theme. Black and white are the epitome of elegance, and a sprinkling of on-trend metallics will add a vintage edge. Stand out in a pure white gown fit for a Hollywood Diva against bridesmaids and groomsmen all in black, and carry orchids for drop-dead glamour. Remember, the stunning view will add breathtaking drama to all your wedding photos!

A 60s traditional wedding

Take inspiration from John and Yoko’s wedding on the Rock and wear a casual white blazer teamed with linen trousers or a chic white mini dress with tennis shoes. You might think that a retro theme will look dated, but if you keep it simple and casual you’ll create something unique and timeless. The secret? Not making everything matchy-matchy, from the bouquets to the decorations to the wedding favours. Add a couple of signature colours that you both love and throw in some surprises like a live wedding painter, flip flops for wedding favours and a wedding pinata for a fun wedding your friends will never forget.

They say that getting married on the Rock is symbolic of a strong and happy future together. If you want to experience the joys of a Gibraltar wedding, then contact us at Sweet Gibraltar Weddings and we’ll be happy to help you arrange the Gibraltar wedding of your dreams.
