A while ago, the Sunshine Weddings Spain team shared FAQs for couples planning weddings in Southern Spain. Now, we’re doing the same for the beautiful island of Mallorca.

Well, there’s no one-size-fits-all answer. Our venues vary widely, each offering exceptional quality and unique features that will make your wedding truly unforgettable. Whether you’re envisioning a rustic celebration in a charming farmhouse estate, a romantic setting in a converted mill, a grand affair in a luxurious wedding finca, or the epitome of opulence at a five-star hotel, Mallorca provides a diverse range of options to suit your preferences.
What makes Mallorca an enchanting wedding destination is the diversity of its regions. Each part of the island offers a unique charm, catering to various preferences. Whether you’re dreaming of a sea-view resort, a rustic country estate, or something a bit more unconventional, Mallorca has it all. The island’s compact size means you and your guests can easily explore different areas, ensuring that your wedding experience goes beyond just the venue.
In the capital city, Palma, history comes to life as you stroll through its winding streets adorned with enticing restaurants and bars. The city’s 14th-century castle and Arab baths bear testament to its rich Roman and Moorish heritage, while the iconic cathedral stands majestically overlooking a picturesque harbour. In sum, Palma’s winding streets and grand architecture provide a captivating backdrop for your wedding photos.
For those seeking a quieter and more tranquil setting, the port towns of Santa Ponsa and Port d’Andratx present luxurious beach resorts against the backdrop of vibrant harbours. Alternatively, to the north of the island, lies the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Serra de Tramuntana, where you can discover stunning lakes and panoramic vistas. If you crave a bird’s-eye view of Mallorca, don’t miss the opportunity to visit its highest peak, Puig Major.
Consider taking a tram ride into Port de Soller, where a breathtaking bay awaits your exploration. For families, Alcudia and the nearby port of Pollensa promise great fun and entertainment. And, for those in search of golden sands and secluded coves, Cala Ratjada or Cala d’Or (Golden Cove) provide crystal-clear waters and rocky inlets. Whether you’re a sun-seeker or a culture enthusiast, Mallorca provides an array of paradise-like destinations to cater for all.
Unlike some Mediterranean regions that can experience scorching heat in the summer, Mallorca offers a more temperate climate. The wedding season in Mallorca typically spans from May to early October. During this period, spring and autumn temperatures range from a comfortable 20°C to 23°C, while in the height of summer, you can expect temperatures to reach between 28°C and 32°C.
Mallorca’s near-ideal weather allows for beautiful outdoor weddings without the concerns of stormy skies or excessive summer heat. Even in mid-summer, you won’t need to schedule weddings exclusively in the evening to avoid unbearable temperatures for your guests.
