Mambo Weddings’ in-house wedding planner Lucy Dyer has been behind some of the best and most beautiful island sunset weddings over the last six years, and has all the experience and contacts – not to mention the military precision like planning skills – to make your event go off without a hitch. Except the getting hitched part, naturally.
First of all, let’s get one VITAL thing straight about Ibiza sunset weddings – it’s important to note that the sunset takes place quite late in the day during summer – between 8pm and 9.30pm, depending on the month. This means sunset ceremonies are a little impractical (if you also want a lovely dinner and fun party afterwards), however it is the perfect moment for your first dance, cutting the cake and posing for the photos as the sun plunges into the Mediterranean Sea behind you. The actual sunset moment can seem quiet fleeting on the day, so be sure to let your wedding planner know your priorities.
It’s not always about weddings – sunset proposals are super popular with fans of the Ibiza sunset strip, with many future fiancee popping the question at Mambo, Savannah or even aboard a Mamboat quite regularly throughout the summer. Mambo Weddings can help arrange the moment perfectly – be it with champagne and sushi at sea, a fire dancer on the rocks or your favourite tune played by the DJ (within reason of course!) – so all you have to do is cross your fingers and hope she says yes!
Once you’ve decided to come to Ibiza for your wedding, the sky is the limit (well, along with your budget) when it comes to planning a sunset wedding. Mambo Weddings can arrange for the bride or groom to arrive at the ceremony by boat, can create extra special moments including floating wishing lanterns , belly dancers, Flamenco guitarists and DJs, plus all the little extras that contribute the success of your event – think love-themed décor, custom-designed wedding cakes, photographers, transport for your guests and more.
Lucy also specialises in creating multi-day, multi-venue itineraries for wedding groups – from pre-wedding brunches and lunches on the beach and boat trips with Mamboats by day, to post-wedding sunset cocktails and dinners at the best restaurants like Villa Mercedes, and parties in cool villas and VIP clubs by night.
