INTIMATE WEDDINGS

How to create a sublime European destination wedding: intimate, micro or mini-wedding, or elopement?

Intimate weddings are currently back in vogue as a response to the challenge of our normal nuptial rituals, as Covid-19 plays havoc with our plans. A micro or scaled-down wedding is any wedding from an elopement, a wedding of the couple plus witnesses to an intimate gathering of up to 50 guests. In the last few years, at Sublime we have been planning gorgeous small celebrations as well as our larger traditional weddings.

Smaller gatherings are a much safer alternative to traditional big weddings at the present time. Micro weddings are intimate and charming, or glamorous and fashionable– your wedding is what your dreams want it to be. Our team is available to help inspire, guide, and plan your wedding in the safest way, putting in place strict and necessary protocols for cleanliness, social distancing, guest movement, and general safety to put your mind at rest.

Become inspired by the top 3 intimate wedding trends for not just an exquisite wedding, but an authentic and memorable cultural adventure. Feel at ease to celebrate and enjoy the best day of your life!

HIRE A VENUE EXCLUSIVELY

As Portugal’s premier wedding specialists, Sublime Luxury Weddings has noticed a significant shift. Over the past couple of years, couples are having smaller, more intimate weddings surrounded by those they love.

More couples are now considering hiring a venue exclusively, which is applicable to luxury hotels that encompass the venue itself. This means the hotel will close its doors for you and your guests, becoming safer to host your wedding, and where partying until dawn is more than acceptable!

 In Portugal hotels are certified by the Tourism Authority with a “Clean and Safe” badge meaning that specific hotel (or restaurant) is fully compliant with the strictest hygiene code.

SAFE TRAVELS AND HAVE A FABULOUS TIME

Portugal is quickly becoming the most sought-after wedding destination globally. Nestled within a small territory, historic architecture, delectable cuisine, world-class arts, leisure, and natural wonders are a stone’s throw away from each other. Soak in the sun on white sandy beaches, then sip world-famous Port at an exclusive private villa. 

Couples are now curating experiences full of authenticity and individuality. Together, with your loved ones, you can explore the beauty and charm of one of the oldest places on Earth, and celebrate your declaration of love. At Sublime Luxury Weddings, we specialize in creating these exquisitely bespoke multi-day vacations for a unique and culturally vibrant atmosphere. Private villas, hiring an hotel exclusively, or a private sail boat, are just a few of the options we offer so that you can enjoy your destination wedding and still be able to explore Portugal to your heart’s content! Private transfers from and to the airport and across the country make everyone feel safe and welcomed.

A TRULY BESPOKE EXPERIENCE

The most impactful destination wedding trend for intimate weddings is in planning a truly unique multi-day adventure; a holiday that reflects the couple entirely. Couples are proudly displaying their unique personalities, passions, and styles. From delicious menus, entertainment, flowers, decor, and destination excursions, every tiny detail expresses the true essence of the couple. At Sublime Luxury Weddings, we enable our couples to weave their personal love stories into breath-taking creations. Using their inspirations and aspirations we curate an impeccable celebration that is unique in every sense.

Heartfelt, handwritten vows, long speeches from loved ones, children and beloved pets lend a touch of the personal to the destination wedding. Bypassing traditional elements like favors for interactive food and wine tasting stations or escort cards for open seating tailor the wedding to your tastes. Unexpected entertainment such as traditional fado music, salsa dancers, and roaming artistry add a thrilling dimension to the event. Couples are also spoiling their guests with gifts from each experience on their journey together, to commemorate each unforgettable shared moment. Sublime Luxury Weddings offers an unsurpassed level of service to customize your destination wedding so it encapsulates you perfectly.
