17 Apr Say “I do” in Mauritius
Are you planning to get married on the paradise island of Mauritius? Great choice!
With its amazing sandy beaches, lush mountains and ideal climate, there is no better place to say “I do”. This tropical country offers countless possibilities depending on your preferences, your budget and the number of guests.
But first things first. When you think of your big day, where do you picture yourself celebrating your union with your partner?
There are many options to choose from, each with their perks and setbacks. One of the most popular choices is getting married in a hotel. Which is not surprising since Mauritius is well-known for its hospitality industry and has a very wide range of hotels, from 2 to 5 stars. The best part of getting married in a hotel is that everything is taken care of, from the menu and the flowers, to the setup and the music. However, all this has a price… And it can be quite steep. Besides, the reception usually has to end before midnight.
If you would rather walk down the aisle surrounded by nature, you can have your wedding in one of the domains, located mostly in the centre of the island. Since they are usually far from inhabited regions, you can party until the early hours of the morning and it can accommodate many guests. But you will usually have to provide a lot of equipment and plan everything yourself.
Les Palétuviers, is the perfect place in between! You are close to the beach, surrounded by nature, and in an amazing setting.
If you don’t have everything organized for you by your venue, you can trust professionals to assist you throughout the process. Stage’In – Mauritius is an efficient event production company who will take care of everything from scratch, making sure to make your wedding an exceptional and unique one. You can rely on them to ensure the most effective organisation and smooth running of your big day according to your expectations.

But let’s talk about an essential part of a wedding: food and drinks!
Buying your own alcohol and beverages is the best and cheapest option. Furthermore, bartending is usually taken care of by your caterer and if ever it’s not the case, you can always hire barmen.
As for food, you have quite a few options depending on the time of the reception, the number of guests and your preferences. Would you rather have a seated diner or a buffet? Or do you prefer cocktail-style receptions with canapés and hors d’oeuvres? You could ask Eva Harel from Pensée Gourmande which would be the best option.
