When you have a Gibraltar wedding, chances are most, if not all, of your guests will be travelling from elsewhere to attend. Most people who attend weddings in Gibraltar will agree that it’s a shame to visit the stunning island and not stay for at least a few days before or after the event. Of course, your beautiful big day will be the highlight of their visit, but there is plenty more for your guests to enjoy too. With that in mind, here are three ideas you could suggest to help your guests make the most of their stay:
There are few things as magical as seeing dolphins in the wild and Gibraltar has a host of options available to make that dream come true. There are many local companies which offer boat trips to suit all tastes. You’ll benefit from the insider knowledge of the local guides who know all the best spots to see these majestic creatures swimming freely.
Can you really come to a wedding in Gibraltar and not make time to see the famous rock itself? Local tour companies can arrange a fully guided experience including a skywalk and the suspension bridge. If you’d prefer a more casual walking tour to take in the sights and snap some photos, there are plenty of options to do that too.
Visit the apes
Gibraltar is known for its famous Barbary macaques, who are the only monkeys living in the wild in Europe. Legend says that if the apes ever leave the island, the British will too. At last count though, there were over 160 of them happily thriving, perhaps they enjoy all the Sweet Gibraltar Weddings too? The best place to see the apes is the Upper Rock Nature Reserve, which is well worth a visit.
When you decide on getting married in Gibraltar, half the appeal is probably just the beauty of the island itself. No doubt your guests will appreciate it too and will be spoiled for choice while they’re here. Whether they opt for beach days, sightseeing, shopping or taking to the sea, your wedding in Gibraltar will help them make so many wonderful memories.
