Wedding Season on Ibiza
Ibiza’s season officially starts around the beginning of May, where most the businesses across the island start to open for what we call the Ibiza season, you will also see a noticeable change in the climate, as the days get hotter towards reaching the hottest months of July and August. July and August is peak season and also the hottest temperatures of the year. Although most of the Island works around the clubs which have opening party’s at the end of May and mid June and stay open until around the end of September with closing party’s. The clubs attract a high percentage of tourists to the Island.
The end of the season is October when the temperatures drop and most businesses that cater for tourists close around the end of this month.
So what does this mean for a wedding event. A few key points are that you will want good weather, you may want to have some good nightlife and you may want to be here while most of the Island is running at 100% (everything is open) , unless you are looking for that winter sun and peaceful wedding event.
You can break down the seasons into off season, low season, mid-season and peak-season.
Off season you can get very good priced deals on wedding venues that are open or will open for you, but remember the reason for off season is that the weather is not very warm and can even be raining. And 85% of the Island businesses are closed. But this also adds the beauty of having a wedding around this time of year. If your lucky and you get a warm day it can be quite pleasing. The months of January, February and March are quite beautiful on Ibiza, Spring can hit Ibiza early as February and March and can be quite magical, one of the noticeable things in nature for Ibiza is the blossoming of the almond trees.
