Before choosing a venue, you shall consider a few things:
The Gambia is a destination where you can choose from many options of venues.
If you are not planning a huge wedding with over 300 guests, then restaurants are top on the list for venues. There are options for all budgets, styles and cuisines. The Gambia will not disappoint you when it comes to food. Gambian, Indian, Lebanese, Chinese, Jamaican, Mediterranean, grilled specialities, Creole, and more. Everything is available. And for all budgets.
Many hotels and lodges in The Gambia offer lovely areas, both indoor and outdoor, such as bars, beaches, pool areas, bantabas and gardens. Booking your wedding venue at a hotel has its perks, such as rooms for out-of-town/country relatives, catering, gorgeous reception areas, and entertainment.
Many wedding ceremonies happen in the family compounds. A private space for the big day is a great idea for couples who find hotels and restaurants to lack the personal touch. Having your wedding at home/family compound opens up more to flexibility. You’re doing what you want on your own time, instead of following the time constraints hotels and caterers designate.
You can select from beautiful pre-arranged beach wedding packages, or build your own package if you’d like! The beach wedding packages are designed to make your marriage ceremony unique, elegant and memorable. From a simple to a larger beach affair, The Gambia offers the perfect beach wedding packages for you.
Hall wedding venues are not only functional, they’re fabulous too and offer a beautiful backdrop for you to officially get wed. The intimate setting allows you to personalize your nuptials in ways that a larger wedding wouldn't, resulting in a celebration that's a reflection of you and your fiancé. Isn't that what your wedding should really be about, anyway?
Your entire wedding can take place on board, so you won't have to worry about the logistics and extra expense of transporting everyone from the ceremony site to the reception. Many boats offer all-inclusive packages with everything included. Some even offer a DJ, along with an onboard lighting and sound system.
