The perks of a minimal guest list when getting married in Gibraltar

It is, of course, a joy to tie the knot while surrounded by your closest friends and family. However, there are also many perks to having a minimal guest list for your wedding. This is something to remember when you choose to say ‘I do’ in Gibraltar. While you might find that a handful of guests RSVP ‘no’ because of the travel, this is actually something that you can turn to your advantage. With this in mind, here are the benefits of having a minimal guest list when getting married in Gibraltar.


It’s always going to be cheaper to cater for less people at your wedding. In fact, you’ll save money every step of the way – from the food you choose to serve, to the size of the venue you need. Ultimately, you’ll find that the less people who are in attendance means there is less cash that you have to spend. The extra money can always be spent on other components of your big day, such as the dress.


Gibraltar is a ‘get up and go’ kind of place. With so much to see and do, it helps to be able to mobilise your wedding party quickly so that you don’t miss out on all the great sights. Obviously this is easier to do when there are less people in the mix, so it generally works in your favour when you’ve got a more manageable number of guests to organise.


The age old saying of ‘the more, the merrier’ isn’t always true when it comes to wedding guests. Instead, it can be nice to keep things quite intimate when it’s just you, your betrothed, and only your closest friends and family. This is because you can actually take in the breathtaking sights in Gibraltar – like the Rock of Gibraltar – without the hassle of others hanging around and potentially spoiling the moment.

Here come the bride and groom!

It’s unlikely that anything – whether it’s a guest list that’s too big or too small – would be able to dampen the sheer enjoyment that comes from getting hitched in Gibraltar. Therefore, don’t hesitate to put your special day together with the help of Sweet Gibraltar Weddings.
