The Wedding Supplier Jungle
It’s difficult to know where to start when you’re planning a wedding in your own country, let alone overseas. Supplier standards can vary dramatically in terms of both product and service depending on the destination you are considering. This is also true of Malta. While there are many websites listing florists, catering companies, beverage suppliers and so on, it isn’t always clear which are the best – and when you are so far away, it’s important to know you’re in good hands.
Tried And Tested Suppliers
If you are arranging your wedding through a hotel or travel agent, they will often have a list of preferred suppliers and engage whoever they see fit, dependent on your requirements. The only drawback with this is that you may not know exactly what you are getting until you arrive on the day, plus the pricing mark-ups could be considerable. It’s a wise idea to ask your organiser who they are using and to provide images of their supplier’s previous work, just to make sure it is in line with your expectations.
If you prefer to take a more hands on approach to your wedding in Malta, here’s a handy list of some tried and tested local suppliers along with a brief summary of their product offerings and standards of service. In some cases personal recommendations have been added; obviously what’s right for one couple may not be right for another, but these recommendations are based on personal experiences of a good, friendly and reliable service, high quality products, competitive pricing and overall ease of transaction.
Malta has a number of good quality alcohol suppliers who can cater for bulk orders for weddings at competitive prices. Choose from a broad selection of local or imported beers, wines, spirits and champagnes at a price band to suit your budget.
Despite months of meticulous planning, your big day will go by in a flash and you’ll find yourself wishing you could do it all over again at half the pace. Finding the right photographer is therefore vital to ensuring all the magical moments are captured and friends and family’s antics documented for you to reflect upon in the years of married life to come. Standards can vary in Malta so make sure you choose a photographer of high caliber and solid wedding experience.
