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?

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.

Demystifying same-sex marriage: All you need to know to get married in Portugal.

In 2010 Portugal became the sixth country in Europe to allow same-sex marriage. It gives the couple the same legal rights as heterosexual couples. The marriage documents required and process for marriage are the same as any civil wedding and no temporary residency whatsoever is required.

The documents required by both marriage partners are:

  • Passport
  • Certified birth certificate
  • A certificate of no impediment
  • In the case of a previous marriage a certified copy of the death certificate of the deceased spouse or a certified copy of the final divorce decree

Although in Portugal same-sex weddings can’t take place in a church or chapel, couples can choose from a number of beautifully romantic places to marry, including white sand beaches, dramatic cliff tops, taking beach front hotels, luxury stunning palaces and rustic farmhouses, making the most of the country’s warm sunshine and views.

 

When we plan same-sex marriages in Portugal we ensure our couple is surrounded by a great environment by choosing from the several gay friendly hotels, venues, restaurants etc. This way the couple’s experience is unique, relaxed and simply unforgettable.
