Why A Palacio de Fronteira Wedding

I always had this boho wedding idea in my head. When I was 16, I used to imagine having a beach wedding. Since our families are Portuguese, we started looking for venues in Portugal. At first, we had booked a rustic spot in Sintra, but then the pandemic hit, and we had to change plans. That’s when my planner showed me Palacio de Fronteira, a historic and classic venue. I wasn’t sure about it because it didn’t fit my boho vision. But in the end, I decided to mix the two styles and go with it.

A Labor Of Love: Handcrafted Bouquets By Mom

To add a special touch to the ceremony, my mom made my bouquet and all my bridesmaid bouquets. She made it ten times better than I envisioned, and it was such a special touch that I would remember forever.

Discovering Lucky Savings and Dream Dress Finds For An Affordable Price

I used an online template to figure out what to include in the budget. Once I had an idea, I started getting quotes to see how much everything would cost. You won’t believe how lucky we got with a few things that saved us a ton of money. First, the bar was included in our package, so we had unlimited drinks without worrying about the cost. And guess what? I found my dream dress for just $400! It was on sale at BHLDN, and I didn’t even bother trying it on before buying it. Can you believe that?

Their Palacio de Fronteira Wedding Reception And Seamless Celebration Exceeded All Expectations (And Lasted Until 2 AM)

The most unforgettable moment of the day was seeing the reception and how everything came together. It was mind-blowing! I know it sounds cliché, but don’t stress about the little things seriously. What I’m particularly proud of is how flawlessly the day unfolded. I honestly can’t recall a single awkward moment. If anything, the day went by in a flash. The music stopped playing at 2 AM, and everyone started chanting for it to return. It was such a fun and energetic atmosphere.
