A destination wedding in Algarve is a popular choice among couples who want to get married in Portugal. The country has many lovely locations that can serve as the perfect setting for your special day.

In order to decide whether an Algarve destination wedding is something you should consider, there are some key things you need to think about. The great weather in Portugal attracts thousands of tourists every year for a reason: Portuguese summers by the beach really are that hot, with average temperatures of above 80 degrees Fahrenheit (27 degrees Celsius) between June and September.



Planning a destination wedding

There are many different options for your Algarve destination wedding. You can choose from many different types of wedding venues, from beach weddings, to castle weddings, to rustic weddings and to vineyard weddings. There are so many options for a destination wedding in the Algarve that you can turn any dream into a reality.

If you want to have a destination wedding in the Algarve, you need to start planning early. You will need to start looking for a venue at least six months before your wedding date and you will also need to find a travel agent that specializes in destination weddings, or book your own flights, hotels and other travel plans.

Then you will need to choose a wedding venue, as there are lots of options for destination weddings in the Algarve, so it is important that you look around and find the one that is perfect for you. The first thing you need to do is decide where you would like to get married. Do you like the beach? Do you like the mountains? Maybe you would like to be in a vineyard.

A destination wedding in Portugal is not necessarily more expensive than a wedding in your home country. If you choose to organize everything yourself, then there are no extra costs associated with having a wedding abroad. However, if you plan on hiring one of the many companies that organize weddings in Portugal, then you should be aware that prices vary greatly depending on which company you choose and what services they provide.

If you wish for an intimate, small wedding surrounded by close family and friends then a small venue might be enough – and a vineyard wedding will be the perfect place to do it. Quinta dos Vales offers the chance to have a beautiful and romantic wedding in a WineEstate, surrounded by vineyards, nature and the warmth of the sun.

To ensure that you get the date you want, it’s best to book as far in advance as possible and make sure that everyone is able to get there. This could mean booking flights for your guests. Another important thing to decide is the theme of the wedding. If you’re getting married in a vineyard, you may want to go with a rustic theme with flowers.

Quinta dos Vales is a Wine Estate located in the heart of the western Algarve and has several venues for the couple to choose from, all of them surrounded by endless, vineyard-contoured slopes that act as the perfect backdrop for a special event of any size, be it a celebration under the stars at one of the outdoor spaces or on a covered panoramic terrace, overlooking the vineyards.

Having had a lot of experience with organizing weddings, Quinta dos Vales has everything that is needed to turn the event into a success. Their on-site team has made sure that all the essentials are covered – from venue rental, food, drinks and catering service to having plenty of space for a band or a DJ setup for the guests to dance the night away.

To make the experience even fuller, it is the perfect opportunity to turn the wedding into a short vacation in the always-sunny Algarve for the guests, or simply choose to spend the wedding night in one of the units located only a few steps away from the party.
