Forte da Cruz
Beach Castle Portugal

A small wedding is like a regular wedding but on a smaller scale. Usually, hosting way less than the average number of guests, the advantages of small weddings are numerous. They are often intimate affairs. Small weddings provide an option that is somewhere between an elopement and big traditional weddings.


You get fewer hassles, cost-saving, creativity, and flexibility. If you’re interested in a small wedding in Portugal, we at Lisbon Wedding Planner would be more than happy to help.

Small Weddings in Portugal

Below are some tips to bear in mind when planning your Small Wedding in Portugal: ​

  • Plan Your Budget

A small wedding is often the best option to go for when you’re on a budget. It cuts down significantly on your expenses and allows you to offer your guests more quality at your wedding. Planning your budget will let you know exactly how much you have to spend and how you want to spend it. 

  • Draw Up A Guest List 

A key feature of small destination weddings is that it centres on the preferences and choices of the couple. You have to sit down with your partner and decide how many guests you are going to invite. After that, is the decision on who exactly gets to come. This may not be easy, particularly if you have a large family and many friends or co-workers. To help with that, fix a number, for example, 35 or less, and stick with it. 

  • Find A Meaningful Location
