The wedding season in Spain is often spoken about for its huge parties. The festivities kick off from the beginning of April through to the end of October, offering months of glorious sunshine for the perfect destination wedding.
Although there’s no wrong time to get married to the love of your life, but saying “I do” among clear skies and sunshine makes a huge difference and luckily, even in the depths of winter, temperatures on the Costa del Sol are still often milder than those of a sunny spring day in England.
Statistically there are more than 300 days of sunshine with average temperatures of 26 degrees in the Andalusian province of Malaga. The hot season lasts for 2.9 months, from June 17 to September 15, with an average daily high temperature above 27 degrees, with August being the warmest month of the year seeing average highs of 31.
But if you’re following what the locals do, then most of the Spaniards opt for an October wedding, where the summer weather is just starting to fade, but is still pleasantly warm for you or your guests, with the added advantage of having vibrant and beautiful autumn colours for capturing the best memories of your life.
It is exceptionally well valued. Getting married in Spain is cheaper than marrying in other European destinations, particularly hot spots such as Italy, France or even the UK.
As an example,
the cost of a pint of draught is approximately 6€ in France, about 6 pounds in the UK and only 2.50€ in Spain. This translates to many other things such as supplies and wedding venues, which work at a much cheaper rate than in other European destinations. There’s no doubt that the globe is currently experiencing a cost of living crisis, but here in southern Spain, it’s impact on the hip pocket is not felt as much as it would be in many other destinations.
April, May, June and October are typically the most cost-effective months to book a summer season destination wedding in southern Spain, additionally, there are cheap and frequent flights to Malaga and Gibraltar. British carriers are putting on more flights to Malaga as the destination soars in popularity, and it is not unusual to see airfares as low as 30 euros, even lower with flight discounts.
At the end of the day, southern Spain has a huge variety of venues with something to suit every budget, for more information get in touch with Sunshine Weddings Spain today.

Wow what can I say, we have just returned from a the most amazing wedding we could ever of imagined. From the very first time we met Scott we knew he was the one to plan our wedding, we knew what we wanted and Scott showed us to the most amazing villa near to were we wanted to get married.
Scott’s team are a real asset to him and helped us arrange meetings with florists, cakes, catering while we were in Spain. Raquel took us for our tasting and helped us create our perfect wedding meal, she was on hand and helped with the smooth running of the day, she was an absolute star.
All our wedding guests said what an amazing weekend it was and one they will never forget so thank you Scott and your team for letting us create such wonderful memories. Mr and Mrs Sutton! X
It’s hard to know where to begin to thank this amazing bunch of people. It all began with a dream of wanting to get married on a beach in Spain, and that dream was made a reality by Scott, Pam and the team. I couldn’t have asked for better people to organise one of the best days of our lives. They were so professional in everything they did. We had zero stress in the months leading up to the wedding thanks to the lovely Pam.
She was brilliant to work with and never missed a detail. I had a lot of ideas for the day and nothing phased her, anything was possible. Scott is on the ball when it comes to the running of the day, he has his schedule down to a tee (we thought it was very optimistic for the day) but the day ran so smoothly from start to finish.
From the moment we woke up it was a lovely calm atmosphere and that carried throughout the day. The suppliers that Pam had suggested to us couldn’t have been better, Padre Peter, Issy, Jasper, Inma, Verity and the band. They all made our day so so special and we can’t thank them enough. After hundreds of emails, 2 trips to Nerja and the support of Pam through it all we were rewarded with the wedding of our dreams.
Our guests are still talking about the day, almost 9 months later, and many of them are planning a trip back. There is so much more that I want to write but I’d end up writing a book. I would highly recommend Sunshine Weddings for anyone planning to get married in the south of Spain. They do a brilliant job. Thank you for giving us the wedding of our dreams and thank you for making it perfect. Carol and James, Nerja 22/09/17 x
