How to make your Gibraltar wedding unlike anyone else’s

Now, we know what you might be thinking… isn’t Gibraltar already a pretty one-of-a-kind place to tie the knot? The answer is that it absolutely is, and our extensive selection of bespoke wedding packages in Gibraltar here at Sweet Gibraltar Weddings can help to make your own nuptials in the British Overseas Territory even more distinctive.

There’s a certain amount that we can do to make your wedding unique, though, and then there’s a certain amount that you can do. So, here are some of the steps you might take to ensure your wedding is even more unforgettable for you, your beloved and your guests.

Incorporate Gibraltar references into your invitations

This is a great tip for any destination wedding, but especially so when the destination in question is somewhere as distinctive as Gibraltar.

You could have a customised stamp created, for example, that depicts the legendary Rock for use on your invitations. Or you might even include a map on the invite, whether of Gibraltar as a whole or the specific part of the territory where your ceremony and reception will be held.

The idea isn’t just to provide some indication or guidance to the prospective attendee – it’s also all about getting them excited anticipating this very special event in this very special location.

Make the local cuisine central to your wedding

Gibraltar’s varied and multicultural history has helped to give it a really distinctive and eclectic gastronomy scene, and you know what they say – the way to your guests’ hearts will definitely be through their stomachs.

You might have visited and dined in Gibraltar previously, and therefore have your own favourites among such staple local dishes as rosto, calentita and rolitos… in which case, it may just be a case of adding your own twist on them.

But if you aren’t familiar with Gibraltarian cuisine, don’t worry, as our own Lounge Restaurant Package could be just the thing for putting the intriguing way the territory ‘does’ food right at the centre of your nuptials.

Blend Gibraltarian and personal musical influences

Music is also a key part of life on the Rock, which it why it shouldn’t surprise you to learn that the territory has produced many successful musicians and bands, ranging from concert guitarist Charles Ramirez to groups like Breed 77 and Melon Diesel.

It might, then, be tempting to include some nods to Gibraltar in the music played at your reception. However, it’s also important to remember that much of the whole point of making your nuptials unique is to incorporate something especially significant to you, as a couple – and maybe your guests, too.

So why not invite any musically gifted friends of yours to bring along their instruments to play at the reception, or have the musicians at your ceremony play your favourite pop or rock songs as instrumentals? The possibilities for musical customisation really are endless!

Anyway, we don’t mean to exhaust you with our rundown of the ways in which you could make your Gibraltar wedding more distinctive – the key thing is to know what can be done to add that extra-special touch to your nuptials.
