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.

BATHROOM BASKET

1. Beauty and Grooming:

  • Comb and brush

  • First Aid Kit
  • Safety pins

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.

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

2 Beautiful bride in the outdoor, sitting on the grass - idyllic

 

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.
