Read on because we tell you why celebrating your wedding in Mallorca will be the best decision of your life.

Mallorca the ideal destination for weddings

Mallorca is a very popular tourist destination, you’ve probably already visited it. And it is an ideal place to celebrate a wedding.

The island offers incredible and varied landscapes: coves with turquoise waters, castles in the middle of nature, charming villages, avant-garde but historic cities, etc.

Another decisive factor is the climate, which is almost perfect for outdoor weddings with pleasant temperatures all year round, many sunny days and little rainfall. This is the ideal climate to guarantee a sunny and wonderful wedding.

Last but not least, the countless possibilities in terms of venue guarantee that you will be able to find the location of your dreams: luxurious hotels, castles, exclusive halls, villas, farmhouses…

Wedding season in Mallorca

The wedding season in Mallorca is longer than in other destinations, running from April to October.

June and September are the most popular months so we recommend you book early if you choose these dates. However, it is also not a bad idea to celebrate your wedding in any of the other months, as the good weather will almost certainly be with you.

Let’s take a look at each month of the wedding season in Mallorca to see what the weather is like:

  • April. It is a pleasant month in Mallorca, with an average temperature of 16°C and little rainfall (5 days on average).
  • May is also very pleasant, with temperatures around 19°C and only 4 days of rain. It is a great month for outdoor activities such as hiking or celebrating a wedding.
  • June Summer begins in Mallorca, with an average temperature of around 23°C. Rainfall drops to two days on average and the possibility of strong winds is very low. It is the perfect month to enjoy the beaches, because the water temperature allows for pleasant bathing or water sports.
  • July This is one of the hottest months on the island, with temperatures averaging 26/27°C and one day of rain. Another perfect month for enjoying the outdoors and being close to the water.
  • August is usually the hottest month of the year with an average temperature of 27/28°C. As August progresses into September, there is a greater chance of thunderstorms, although rainfall days are around two. In August we all continue to enjoy the island’s beaches and coves, as well as water sports and nautical activities.
  • September is a very pleasant month, with an average temperature of 24°C. and five days of rainfall. The sea is still warm so we can continue to take advantage of the countless beaches, coves and routes that Mallorca has to offer.
