Despite Christa being Maltese and having recently left the Island, we knew that planning a wedding from practically the other side of the world would not come by easily. We needed someone with experience in destination weddings, someone who would know the running of the mill, not only in terms of paperwork when it comes to intercultural marriages, but also giving us that heads up on what is done and not done, and how to go about the planning and supplier selection. And that’s how we chose IdoWeddingsMalta.
We started planning 9 months earlier, and immediately Martina would prioritise the best locations for our religious ceremony and reception. It was great because Martina would send over numerous photos of recommended locations, as well as her opinion and experience when working with such suppliers. The same went for choosing the music, photos, flowers: a wide array of suppliers she works with, all with great portfolios, innovative ideas and attentive to your and your partner’s special touch.
A great tool which Martina and Laetitia swear by is their Planning software. Gone are the long threaded emails which you might have forgotten to put in your Wedding Folder: with the planning software you can share and save and upload and download whatever documents or photos you’re sharing with your planner. This was a great lifesaver. Everything was organised, from food choices, to supplier bank details, to photo samples. It actually felt like we were planning from around the corner in Malta not from across the Atlantic in Rio de Janeiro!
To all newly engaged couples considering Malta as their desination for an unforgettable wedding, we say: do it your way! From our experience, we drifted away from the traditions of Maltese weddings, had to cater for guests coming from various countries across the globe, all with their cultural baggage and expectations, but focusing on what mattered most, on the beauty and joy of a happy wedding day, we pulled off an unforgettable day for ourselves, our families, and closest friends. Martina and her team were an essential part of this process, she listented to our needs, answered our queries and gave us invaluable advice. Putting it simply: she’s highly recommendable!
