Diary of a wedding Planner

A Little Inspiration

A bride once told me a good Wedding planner is a very special gift that you give yourself! Then you wonder how you could have ever lived without one!

Weddings are a time in your life when you want everything to be perfect. You want to choose the time of the year to get married that fills all your needs. Wedding seasons can have an impact on any wedding. If you want to have a holiday wedding, you might have a winter wedding. If you want to have an outdoors wedding, spring, summer and possibly fall are the perfect months. When you decide which type of Algarve wedding you want to have, you are also choosing the season. This is important for planning the entire wedding. The Algarve’s main months to hold a special event would be May, June, July, August and September as most people want the beautiful weather.

Summer Weddings: June, July, August

Summer weddings are more popular because you can choose from many different dress styles and you could have the wedding outdoors or indoors. It is possible to have theme weddings such as a ceremony on one of the Algarve’s famous beaches, within villa grounds, set within beautifully matured gardens, country weddings, on a private boat at sun set. When you are thinking about the different wedding seasons, summer is usually the first one to come to mind.

Spring Weddings: March, April, May

When you are thinking about the best wedding seasons, spring time always comes to mind because the flowers are in bloom and it is never too hot for fancy dresses and tuxedos. You can easily have a wedding outdoors or indoors in the springtime as well as the summer. This is the time when almost every flower you want for your wedding is in season and you can choose any colour you want.

Autumn Weddings: September, October, November

This is a wonderful time of the year to marry if you are planning to have a wedding with a difference. With many beautiful, country properties, lavish villas and historical castles available to be used in the Algarve. We can create a truly magical day. With so many vibrate and warm colours of the season. The Algarve is often forgotten about this time of year. The end of September can still reach highs of 30 degrees, perfect for an outdoor wedding.These months are often less expensive, as many of the school holidays are over and the flights and accommodation prices have reduced.

Winter Weddings: December, January, February

Winter isn’t always a season people choose for the Algarve, as they dream of a wedding with sun, sea and sand. Often people think the Algarve is cold and wet, however this isn’t always the case, the Algarve can be warm and dry during these months. The Algarve has many beautiful beaches, ideal to use as a back drop for the ice blues, silvers, whites and the pale pinks of the months. These months give the fairy tales chance to come alive. With hooded long, white, fur coats, mulled wines and big church candles. Not forgetting the festive warm reds and log fires. Weddings in February are often dominated by red, pink and gold colour palettes coupled with hearts and roses to reflect the air of romance that surrounds this time of year. This is an ideal wedding month, for the modern bride. Whilst this is, of course, very appropriate for a Valentine’s wedding, many brides are looking for something less sugary with a more contemporary and original feel. I would recommend one of the Algarve’s boutique hotel venues.
