10 things it’s totally cool to do at your wedding (Part 1)

Have a tiny guest list – It’s your day and you can choose who to invite and what you can afford. Don’t go into a huge debt just to impress anybody. You will get a bad case of wedding hangover when you get the bills.

Have a destination wedding – Not everyone will be able to make it, but the ones that matter will….

Keep negative people off your guest list – Even if they are family, you want only happy guests sharing your special day. It will make a huge difference.

Thumbs down.

Have a “themed wedding” – Forget tradition and social pressures. Make this day your own, no matter what that means. You will be happy you did! (Game of Thrones anyone?)

Getting married somewhere different – You don’t have to get hitched in a church or temple. Try something exciting, a hot air balloon, a boat, a ranch, the desert, an aquarium, the zoo or anything else that makes you happy. Your guests will enjoy a different venue and experience.

Skip the wedding cake and try something different – Again, it is ok to do something different like ice cream bars or brownies (not the happy ones). People will always remember something special and wedding cakes are really expensive, so you can save some bucks for the honeymoon.

Serve BBQ – It will make the affair fun, different and very yummy!

Make it beach chic, not black tie – This will make a huge difference in the mood of the party as people will be more relaxed and ready to party.

Have a shot girl – Distributing shots can accelerate the speed at which the party will get banging! Just make sure you have enough alcohol available if it gets crazy!

Don’t take traditional wedding pictures – It is a huge effort and consumes a lot of time and at the end you will probably look at the party pics more than the traditional ones. Make it fun for you and party like it’s 1999BC!!!!

The Do’s and Don’ts if you go to Ibiza

 

Don’t: Go there on a tight budget, I cannot stress this enough. It is honestly so not worth it to go all the way there and have to be concerned about every penny. Drinks range from 9-30 euros for a drink, that 9 will sadly get you a bottle of water, or the house wine, and all of this is not including your entrance fee which usually ranges from 30-75 euros per person in the major nightclubs and pool parties!

tight budget

Do: check the schedule on Muchotickets.com/en/ to make sure that your favorite Dj’s will be playing, the weekly residences are insane, they usually include people like Axwell and Ingrosso, Hardwell, David Guetta, Dimitri Vegas &Like Mike, and so many more!

Don’t: forget to stay hydrated if you take a pill in Ibiza to show Avicii that you’re cool. It is hot as hell out there and humid too, the sun goes down around 10PM so you will be in full party mode while the sun goes down, and the stars come up!

Do: Get a table with your crew of people if you can afford it. The clubs in Ibiza hold anywhere from 5-10,000 people so the dance floor can get ridiculously crowded to the point of not being able to move. (plus some are not airconditioned)The tables run for a couple grand but they are totally worth it, your own private security guard escorts you to wherever you want to go, whether it is the bathroom or the middle of the dance floor. The bottles keep flowing as long as you want them too, and you have your own space so no worrying about the madness that is the dance floor. This is your ultimate celebrity VIP experience! (a table for 4 is 2 seats and a table for 8 is four seats, plus the prices are all inclusive you do not add the 30% that is added in the states)

Don’t: be intimidated by the size of the crowds and clubs either, just be prepared for lots of bumping and grinding with strangers’ and their drugs, sweat, and tears covering you.

amnesia

Do: Pregame heavily for basically every event, getting drunk is expensive; maintaining that drunk on the other hand is not too bad! If you decide to go sans table, we recommend a lot of this, unless you don’t mind the drink prices.

pregame

Don’t: Dress to impress if you’re spending the night on the floor. Be comfortable and happy. You will see people in 6 inch stilettos, and you will see people in converse and flip flops, wear what makes you feel best. For the most part there are absolutely no dress codes in these places so you can get away with wearing anything. You probably see more jean shorts at the club than you do LBD’s so keep that in mind when you’re planning your outfits!

Do: Spend some time at the beach clubs and local non touristy restaurants out of Ibizas main city, they are on the water and usually have incredible views, lounge music, and great vibes!

Don’t: forget that it is not Ibiza if you don’t leave the club while the sun is rising at least once on your trip! So have an incredible time, say hello to my one of my favorite cities, and most of all, stay safe and happy! You haven’t lived until you see the sun come up at Space, works for both Miami and Ibiza

BTK tip of the week: Wear lots of insect repellant, especially if you are in the Wynwood area, as Zika is spreading here and can be very serious. Besides that we hope you have an incredible weekend, let BTK help you out with any reservations or plans you may need!
