You can take advantage of the beautiful stretches of beach, opt for a traditional wedding in a stunning cathedral filled with history, or even take your wedding to a local Lisbon winery. It’s super simple to travel to this country, making things easier on you and your guests.

The Culture

The immense amount of culture you will find in Portugal is unbelievable. Freshly caught fish vendors line the city markets while local wineries share the fruits of their labor on most corners. The city itself was established in 1200 BCE, making it one of the older cities in Europe. Because of this, you can visually see the history in the architecture and the city itself. One of the best parts of any city’s culture is the food. Lisbon is known for its delicious desserts, known as pastéis de natas, which pairs beautifully with a glass of Arinto. The locals will make you feel at home and I would be willing to bet you’ll never want to leave.

The Scenery

The climate in Lisbon is unmatched, with nearly 300 days of sunshine every year. This makes having a wedding any time of year possible. The city is known for its castle-like architecture, sweeping sea views, and lush green vineyards. The wide array of options for wedding photo backdrops allows you to get a little bit of everything all in one place. Because of this city’s beachy vibes, you can capitalize on being in this stunning spot and stick around for your honeymoon here as well.
