Making the most of your pre-wedding flight to Gibraltar

It can take as little as three hours to fly from the UK to Gibraltar. You’d be hard pressed to deem the journey any sort of a hindrance – especially since it can come very in handy if you are about to get married. Once you’ve boarded the plane along with your betrothed and your guests, here are three ways that you can make the most of your pre-wedding flight to Gibraltar.


It’s true that planning a wedding is exciting – but it can also be rather tiring. Luckily you’ve got the perfect excuse to rest up when you’re on the plane to Gibraltar. Whether you try to get some sleep or whether you simply relax with your own thoughts, you’re likely to step off the plane with more energy for your wedding ahead. Don’t forget, this downtime will also leave you looking refreshed before you walk down the aisle and tie the knot.


Weddings guests usually fall into three categories: those who know the bride, those who know the groom, and those who know both members of the happy couple. You shouldn’t take for granted that these guests won’t necessarily know each other though – and you can use this time travelling to get people to mingle and talk. In this regard, the flight acts as a kind of icebreaker to get people acquainted before the big day.


Okay, so admittedly it’s hard to switch off when you’ve got the most special day of your life ahead of you. Thankfully, the flight marks the perfect opportunity to put some of the final touches on your big day before you touch down in Gibraltar. This can be anything from seating charts to the order that you’ll play the songs during the reception. You just never know what inspiration will come to you when you’re thousands of feet in the air.

Good luck!

There’s plenty to look forward to when you’re getting married in Gibraltar – and the flight should be one of them! If you’re keen to set the date and know you want to say ‘I do’ in a sun-soaked setting, get in touch with Sweet Gibraltar Weddings.
