Themes for your beach wedding in Gibraltar

Creating the perfect wedding setup is one of the most important aspects of your special day. But with the sandy beaches of Gibraltar, finding your dream setting is easier than ever. If you’ve decided on a beach wedding but want to elevate it even further, why not consider a theme?

Themed weddings are becoming more and more popular in the industry and with so many options to choose from, it’s not hard to see why. So, if you’re interested in a beach wedding in Gibraltar but are struggling with a theme, here are some possible choices to consider.

Sea theme

With the sea already acting as the backdrop to your beach wedding, why not take inspiration from this for your decor? With so many shades of blue to choose from, you really are spoilt for choice – think pale blue bridesmaid dresses and navy suits for the men.

If you’re sold on a sea theme, you can look at incorporating this into the reception too. Driftwood and sea shells make for beautiful table centrepieces, while paella and tapas would go down a treat as your wedding food. Baby’s breath would also look beautiful in the flower arrangements, and you could add coral for something a bit different.

Sunset theme

Not quite got your sea legs? Not to worry, how about a sunset theme instead? With such beautiful colours to choose from, you can create an elegant and peaceful vibe for your wedding. Why not go with muted pastels for a more understated look? Or go bold and capture the phenomenon of the setting sun with purples and yellows. Purple bridesmaid dresses would look stunning, as would a bouquet made up of orange and yellow flowers.

For your evening meal, opt for al fresco dining. This will allow your guests to enjoy the actual sunset before partying the night away.

Glamour theme

If you’re not feeling the beach, Gibraltar can also offer you plenty of glamour. Situated right at the top of the Rock, The Mons Calpe suite supplies a backdrop worthy of a Hollywood movie.

You can enhance the glamour and elegance with a black and white colour scheme. Additional accents of gold can provide that vintage Hollywood, and ask your guests to come red-carpet ready in ball gowns and suits. Opt for champagne and hors d’oeuvres to really sell the theme.
