What to do with your wedding bouquet during the ceremony

Wondering what do you do with your bouquet during the ceremony?

 

DSCF2455 (2)

You have plenty of options:

 

Give it to your bridesmaid or matron of honour.

Place it in a stool or chair if any next to you..

If it is a register office ceremony you can put it on the ceremony table while you sign the register & have photos.  You can even plan for a nice vase for head table.

If it is a church wedding you can ask your dad to hold it for you, he can put it at the front of the church during the service and then give it back to you as the ceremony ends and you walk down the aisle as a married couple.

Bathroom Baskets: What you can’t miss

 

 

Bathroom baskets can be really a life safer for your guests.

We put together a list of items and some tips  that we always consider when planning our weddings in Portugal.

It’s important to get the correct size so when you’re visiting your venue, remember to measure the counter space in the toilets. If there isn’t much counter space, ask for a stool or small table to hold the bathroom kit.

1. Beauty and Grooming:

  • Comb and brush
  • Lip balm
  • Lotion

  • Scissors
  • Sun cream (as the sun can go really strong in Portugal)

2. Emergency Situations:

  • First Aid Kit
  • Safety pins
  • Stain remover (tip mini stain remover pens can be bought online)

Is wedding insurance a necessity for a wedding in Portugal?

Portrait Of Bridesmaid And Bride Jumping

 

A wedding insurance in not compulsory but highly advisable.  Just think of it like car or house insurance – only useful if you need it but you would never think about not having it.  It is also cheap as chips in comparison to something going wrong so why would you risk it specially thinking that you are in a country abroad? And from our experience the sooner you get it the better.

As your wedding planner in Portugal we will definitely be able to advice you on the best option for you so you wouldn’t have to worry about a thing!

What do wedding insurances cover?

It depends on the wedding policy you go for but most wedding policies in Portugal cover:

  • Loss or damage (due to accident, fire or theft)to the main wedding outfits; presents, and rings;
  • The cake and flowers;
  • The price of having to retake photographs and video;
  • Failure of wedding cars;
  • Personal liability and legal expenses.

What exactly is a Blessing Ceremony and how does it work?

 

wedding

 

A blessing is in many ways no different from any other ceremony. The main difference lies in the fact that it is not legally binding.

Blessings were created mainly for couples already legally married usually in a very private setting that to have a wedding party and ceremony with all of their family and guests at a later stage.

Within a blessing couples usually make their vows to each other, exchange rings or gifts, add readings and music or enrich the ceremony with the addition of joining rituals to symbolize their union such as lighting of a candle, binding of hands, wine sharing, sand blending, love letter locked box, the giving of a flower or anything that makes sense to the couple and to their love story.

Celebrants will also write the couple love story that will inspire their speech. The result is a magical ceremony, very emotive and so special for both the couple and the guests.

Blessing ceremony is usually crystallised with the legendary kiss between the bride and the groom at the end.
