1. Plan and organise your wedding seating

Planning and organising seats for your wedding in Gibraltar may not be one of the most exciting things to do. Regardless of the challenges, you need to take your time and make sure the wedding seats are arranged thoroughly. Talk to your wedding planner to ensure you’re providing a well-thought-out seating arrangement that works for everyone.

2. Have interactive food stations

In our experience at Sweet Gibraltar Weddings, we’ve found that interactive food stations at wedding receptions ensure that attendees have a truly unforgettable dining experience. Offering dishes and drinks that can be customised to one’s liking also allows for more mingling between guests.
