Nova Santa Ponsa

Mallorca's mountain and sea vistas have always qualified is as a romantic destination. Increasingly, couples influenced by the island's many pluses are choosing to get married here.Cheap airfares, reliable Mediterranean climate, and a profusion of charming village's and city sites contribute to the rising wedding popularity....

Tipping the scales, especially with budget-conscious couples, is the fact that the island offers out standing value for money compared to many other European locations

A major economy involves the rental of reception venues. An expenditure that can run to many thousands of euros elsewhere usually doesn't even come into the equation here.People who come to Mallorca especially to get married tend to want to escape from what they consider the norm. What appeals to foreigners getting married in Mallorca is the relaxed atmosphere in surroundings so captivating that they need little enhancement. Natural perfection and informality mean that decorations might involve little more than candles and sprigs of colorful bougainvillea, or wonderfully scented orange blossoms, or clusters of freshly picked orange and lemons. Nor do flashy limousines feature in most celebrations. Instead, whenever possible, the wedding party walks in procession from the church to the reception venue, cheered on by waving and clapping locals-an animated scene that looks great in photos.

The complexities of coordinating a wedding in any circumstances can be over whelming; factor in distance, language difficulties, and a lack of local experience and the high stress levels can come close to putting the ceremony at risk! This is where the island's professional organizers become invaluable aides, adeptly matching questing couples with idyllic locations. They do as little or as much as the client wants. Perhaps their greatest strength-and solace-is averting costly and disastrous mistakes.

Interestingly, many of the allegedly Mallorcan conventions interspersed into foreign ceremonies and receptions are sentimental fabrications. for the most part, Mallorquins marry in much the same way as everyone else. For instance, they choose classical wedding music such as Here Comes the Bride; foreigners, on the other hand, often prefer the 'authenticity' of a Spanish choir of flamenco guitarist in the church. And where foreigners incorporate existing flora, Mallorquins generally prefer conventional formal flower arrangements.

Caballero de la rosa (the rose cavalier) is another tradition which survives. About an hour before the wedding., the groom's best friend or brother arrives at the bride's home. He presents her with a bouquet of flowers and eloquently recites a poem he has written that extolls her beauty and tells her how much the groom loves her. In our impersonal existence of text messages, this enduring ritual is a particularly touching link to times past.

One area where regional influence regns supreme is in the cuisine. Mallorca's tasty ingredients prevail, whether it's arroz brut ('dirty' rice) and lechona (suckling pig) favoured at the local village wedding or fresh seafood specialties and bountiful buffets seen at cosmopolitan functions. And for the wedding desert, what could be more typical than delicious helado de almendras (almond ice cream) and gato de almendras (almond cake) made from the sweet nuts that are a hallmark on the island.

In the end, it doesn't matter whether the traditions are old or new, indigenous or foreign. Mallorca's compelling combination of oldie-world e culture, quality lifestyle, and spectacular environment create an exceptional experience.

Every bride dreams of a memorable wedding; Mallorca delivers.
