How to choose your Ibiza wedding villa

As dreamy as it gets.

As one of the most magical places on the planet, Ibiza obviously ranks high amongst favourite wedding locations. With myriad stunning locations and villas around the island, it does not come as a surprise. Check out where you could be saying the words "I do" by reading on.

Renting a villa works whether you are looking for an intimate ceremony for only you and some close friends or a big celebration with a good number of guests.

Plus, if you choose to have both your wedding and your reception at the villa, you could save on the cost of hiring two separate venues. With flights, transfers and all the wedding expenses to consider, this could be a great bonus.

While in most cases you will need to have an official wedding to get your actual marriage license - usually done in the bride and groom's home country - it is possible to get married on the island. Nevertheless, most go for a smashing wedding celebration here on Ibiza.

To save you the time to check whether the villa you select accepts bookings for weddings and how many guests are allowed, here is a guide to villas that do.

First decisions

Estrella Roja with its stunning grounds and view

You can start by looking at our selection of villas for weddings, which frequently hold this type of special event. Not every villa will accept weddings and these have all been vetted as ones that do.

Once selected, you will need to fill out the form at the end of the villa page to be connected to our partners, Privadia, who will verify your booking. You'll need to give them an idea of what kind of celebration you want to hold as well as guest numbers so they can make a final check with the owners to see if they are happy with your plans.

Being clear on these details is important as some villas are licensed to host only the maximum number of people that a villa sleeps. Note that villas often levy an additional charge for wedding events in most cases.

If you plan on making a lot of noise, remember that there is a noise curfew at midnight. You could of course head for the bright lights of Ibiza and go to a super-club, so consider this when looking at a location for proximity.

You will most likely want to engage the services of a wedding planner such as Ibiza Service Center so you have someone on the ground to handle all eventualities.

Finally, it's likely that all your guests will not be staying at the villa you choose, so you might want to look into renting an additional villa or you can select a hotel from our hand-picked selection.

What type of villa?

On Ibiza Spotlight's villa pages, you can choose by location, such as a specific resort, villas in the Ibiza countryside or ones near the beach. Many wedding couples like to have their photos taken next to the sea, so the latter option could be for you. Some might prefer the splendid isolation of a rural villa.

You will be able to quickly see - via the photo galleries on each villa page - the style of the property, with everything from sparkling minimalist decor or rustic Ibicenco charm. You can also select the villa size, choose luxury or opt for budget places.

To help get you started, here's a selection of villas for different tastes and needs:

Best all-rounder: A gorgeous setting with valley views, lots of space, modern meets rustic charm and a sweeping pool - Villa Buscastells ticks many of the wedding celebration boxes.

Ideal for small ceremonies with scenic views: With its beach club-style bar area, pool and sunset views, Villa Benito is also perfect for intimate ceremonies that finish early.

Perfect for a large party wedding: Besides its breathtaking views and myriad outdoor areas, Estrella Roja boasts an indoor nightclub with DJ equipment to keep the party going after midnight. Party on!

Perfect for families with small children: This elegant house Villa San Lorenzo Deluxe has a playroom and also a full-size boat in the garden for children to play on. The owner can even assist in the organisation of the ceremonies as she has a wedding/events company
