From princesses to pop stars, some brides just seem to be able to capture the zeitgeist, setting new standards for beauty, elegance and style. Some are much anticipated, others come completely out of the blue from unexpected quarters.
Taken from a list of Vogue’s 25 iconic wedding dresses, here at The Wedding Portugal we’ve selected our favourites.
Grace Kelly by Helen Rose
Princess Charlene of Monaco designed by Giorgio Armani
Jacqueline Kennedy by Anne Lowe
Anne Hathaway by Valentino
Elizabeth Taylor by Helen Rose
Bianca Jagger by Tommy Nutter
The Duchess of Cambridge by Alexander McQueen
Kate Moss by John Galliano
Gene Tierney by Oleg Cassini
Audrey Hepburn by Pierre Balmain
As you can see, they are all iconic in their own different ways, both reflecting and defining the eras from which they come.
Now imagine teaming up an iconic dress of your own with a stunning Portuguese wedding venue and you’re on track for having an unforgettably glamours wedding day of your own.
Weddings are all about flowers right? Wrong. Well, not wrong exactly, but they certainly don’t have to be. There are plenty of alternatives for creating stylish, innovative and beautiful centrepieces that don’t rely on our floral friends.
As well as being one of the major expenses at any wedding, flowers can be problematic, sensitive to temperature and they don’t exactly hold their shape for long, so to speak.
Plus, there are plenty of stunning, colourful, fun and fabulous alternatives, including fruit…
With a little imagination, you can make your centre pieces a real talking point without having to spend a fortune at the florists or worry that a stiff breeze might blow them away.
It’s no wonder that non-flower centrepieces have been a big hit in 2015, and here at The Wedding Portugal, we just love to use our imaginations when dressing a table.

This is the kind of flair and style that we bring to our wedding planning services here in Portugal. We think that you’ll love them too.
