Portugal – A Romantic Destination Wedding

Today’s newly engaged couples are adapting a new trend of romanticism using ancient wedding traditions from past generations in planning their weddings.

What better way to add that “Old World’ romance by having a destination wedding in Portugal.

Sally Kilbridge, veteran editor of Brides magazine, has created a new magazine; DestinationW which provides engaged couples with everything they need to plan a destination wedding.
In the “premier” edition of the magazine Portugal is featured on 58-77. Page 77 features their picks of TOP 5 hotels.

In a recent article the magazine also recommends; “For a fantasy wedding, you couldn’t do better than the fairytale buildings at Vidago Palace, in Portugal.”

 In 1910, Portugal’s King Manuel II was days away from inaugurating his family’s newest holiday compound when he was overthrown and exiled. Instead of becoming a royal retreat, Vidago Palace was turned into a hotel and spa, inviting European elite to take the waters for 100 years.
