Of all the European countries, Portugal is the most exclusive. Unlike Spain, Germany, France, Italy and the United Kingdom; Portugal has largely kept to her traditions and thus makes her an ideal location for that dream wedding you have been planning.
Every person that walks down the proverbial isle wants his/her wedding special in all ways. From the wedding color theme and flowers to venue and food, people want their wedding day to be special.
Portugal was destined to be an ideal wedding destination from the word go. It is located on the exclusive Iberian Peninsula, is a developed and democratic country and holds sovereignty over the Atlantic archipelagos of Azores and Madeira. The country derives its name from the Latin word Portus Cale. So why should you have you wedding in Portugal?
Portugal is home to some of the best wedding destinations. A good example would be the sandy beaches of the Algarve, scenic vineyards of the Douro Valley, and the medieval villages on the Alentejo plains.
Unlike other developed countries, Portugal is a relatively cheap destination to hold your wedding. Amazingly, most of its cuisines such as Cozido à portuguesa, Francesinha, Feijoada, Maranhos, and Amêijoas à Bulhão Pato are cheaply obtained from catering services or hotels.
3. Little Legality
Portugal is quite flexible in its marriage rules. Apart from the regular rules such as getting two witnesses and filling in the marriage registration form, other rules are pretty direct.
4. Honeymoon destinations
The islands of Azore and Madeira are some of the best honeymoon destinations in the world. Examples of resorts you can stay during honeymoon includes; Pestana Bay Hotel, Enotel Lido Resort Conference & Spa Madeira, Hotel Dorisol Estrelicia, Hotel Dom Pedro Baia, Pestana Delfim Beach & Golf Hotel and many more.
Overall, Portugal is the best wedding destination in Europe. It is beautiful yet budget friendly. It is exclusive but not 'aloof'. If I were you, I would be different from my friends who want a wedding in the Caribbean. Portugal is Unique, classy and affordable. You will be in a class of your own for having your wedding here!
