Being Portuguese myself , depending on where your ceremony is (church or not) we usually do an offer to the saint of the church. Like for our ceremony, our saint is lady of fatima, we will be offering a bouquet of flowers to the statue and it will be a reflexion moment as well. We are doing 2 readings in Portuguese and then 1 in english. We are doing our vows in English. Hopes this helps in life.

A lot of catholic ceremonies have a “lighting of the marriage candle” where your respective parents each light a candle and then you are your Darling Husband take the flame from each to light your shared marriage candle. Could be a nice touch ๐Ÿ™‚

@couawilou:  lol ๐Ÿ˜‰ And Portuguese women are lovely as well hehe

 @bride71413:  The last portuguese wedding I went to had an accordian (sp?)player playing some portuguese ballads during the cocktail hour, it was really cute. Are you also considering entertainment? You could always hire a portuguese dance troupe!

@DeeVine1217:  Thank you ๐Ÿ™‚ My dad is actually playing his accordion during our reception. Just a few songs.

@bride71413:  Do you have someone who plays it? Maybe they could play a few songs.

@couawilou:  That’s awesome! My fiance is pretty opposed to having the traditional portuguese wedding. I think we might add pasteis de nata to our sweets table and maybe have some sort of dance troupe but that’s it! Oh and caldo verde as our soup. lol
