Why do I need a wedding planner like ALAGO Events?

For many couples, it is their very first time planning a wedding. They are confused as to where to begin, how much everything costs, and how to choose vendors. The number of locations, caterers, photographers and other service providers used to be relatively limited. These days the options are endless and with them comes greater chance of making the wrong choice. We have done all the leg-work and after over a decade of experience as wedding planners in Mallorca we know the right suppliers for every part of your day.

Planning a wedding is not only about choosing your colors, flowers, and menu. There are logistical matters to attend to such as the timing of events, parking situations, and knowing which vendors are reputable. We are here to guide you and to take care of all of these concerns. We are able to help save you time and money as well as your sanity so you can actually enjoy your wedding day!



Why should I pay for a wedding planner when some offer services “free of charge”?

So-called “free” wedding planners offer their services by adding their fees to those of each service provider contracted for your wedding. So you may not be knowingly paying for their services but the cost is there.
 
Because we receive our fees from you, we have no financial incentive to recommend one service provider over another who might offer a better commission, and you’ll know that we are selecting the ones that are best suited to your unique event. Our goal when contracting all vendors will be one of obtaining the best services at the fairest price. It’s as simple as that. It’s very transparent and there are no hidden costs.


I am not a resident in Spain, can I still get married in Mallorca?

The ease with which foreigners can marry in Mallorca depends on the ceremony that you are planning on having.

If you are planning on a Civil ceremony then you will need to sign up for Spanish residency 6 months prior to the event.

Alternatively, you can have a small civil marriage in your country before flying out to Mallorca and having a blessing ceremony. This ceremony is our most popular as it allows you to totally personalize the service and vows to suit your style plus it can take place anywhere you wish: church, field, courtyard, garden, etc.

If you are Catholic then you can have a church wedding that is legal, both by civil marriage and religious, so there is no need to have a civil ceremony in advance of your wedding day. The ceremony on your wedding day in Mallorca will be legal and it must take place in a catholic church, of which there are many beautiful ones on the island.
