for Your





You’ve probably heard of rustic weddings a lot since you started thinking about your wedding. That’s because rustic weddings are becoming a popular wedding theme choice among wedding couples. With a rustic wedding, you get a fresh and relaxed vibe that your guests will be talking about for a long time after.

Rustic weddings are also popular in Portugal. In fact, we at Lisbon Wedding Planner have handled lots of them. So, if you’re wondering what a rustic wedding in Portugal would be like, here’s an article from us with a few tips to help you make up your mind.

  • First, What Is A Rustic Wedding?

Rustic weddings are a timeless wedding theme that has been a favorite for a long time. They have a strong country influence and feature lots of organic and natural things. Rustic weddings are often casual, and the countryside is often a perfect fit. It also features décor that includes lots of natural elements like wood, wildflowers, fruits, etc. Here at Lisbon Wedding Planner, we love rustic weddings and are great at planning rustic outdoor weddings in Portugal.  

  • Great Outdoor Venues for Your Rustic Wedding in Portugal

Choosing a venue is one of the most important parts of planning your rustic outdoor wedding in Portugal. You have to go for a venue that complements and lends itself to the theme perfectly. The Quinta do Torneiro, Gremio Palace, and the Monserrate Palace are some of such venues that you can use for your rustic outdoor wedding in Portugal. What’s also amazing is that Lisbon Wedding Planner can get you amazing packages from these locations and the best services too. These venues will complement your wedding’s neutral color palette with their beautiful settings and natural feel.  They’ll provide the perfect ambiance for your wedding.

  • How About The Right Props?

The great thing about rustic wedding props is that they are inexpensive. Which will add to the overall budget-friendly experience that you get when Lisbon Wedding Planner handles your wedding. Tree logs, candles, burlap, jam jars, and hay are some excellent props that will help your wedding with that rustic feel. A tiered cake designed with a rustic wedding in mind will also add to the décor. These props are available for outright buying, or you could hire some of them. All you need to do is let us know which you’d prefer and leave the rest to us.

  • The Menu Is Less Than Formal for Rustic Outdoor Weddings in Portugal

It ultimately depends on what you desire, but for that rustic, laid back feel, a less than formal menu is best. You could skip the traditional three-course meal for a barbeque instead. Classic comfort food and lots of sweet cakes for dessert will also help when it comes to this theme. Luckily for you, all the venues and vendors we work with have the experience of fashioning your wedding whatever way you please.

  • An Essential Addition to Your Rustic Outdoor Wedding in Portugal

This addition is romantic lighting. Romantic lighting complements the atmosphere at your rustic outdoor wedding. Picture fairy lights wrapped around tree branches; they’ll add the much-needed magic touch to your day. You should see the outdoor venues that Lisbon Wedding Planner has ready for you, light up in the dark. You and your guests won’t be able to stop talking about how wonderful it was.

  • Natural Décor Is the Best for Your Rustic Outdoor Wedding in Portugal

Your décor color palette should be natural and neutral. Think colors like browns, creams, and greens. With the natural surroundings at some of our outdoor rustic wedding venues, you won’t even have to use table covers or clothes to finish up your décor. You can still add them, though. The natural look of the elegant wooden chairs you’ll find at Quinta do Torneiro, Gremio Palace, and other outdoor venues are a perfect addition to your rustic style.
