In the world of pandemic, do you think it's safe enough to plan destination weddings here? What are the most important things to know about regulations in Portugal?
We know we are not the voice of the reason, nobody these days is and nobody knows for sure…. But we feel pretty confident and comfortable with planning weddings.
If you ask us if it is 100% secure now - it‘s not - you will be touching and hugging a lot of people and nobody can guarantee other wedding guests are taking the same caution as you do.
In our opinion people should only come to Portugal with a negative covid-19 test to ease everyone’s minds, but that’s not the reality. We think it’s important to keep it strictly to small events until we have a vaccine. It‘s everyone's responsibility to help containing the virus from spreading even more. We are praying for a better wedding season in 2021 and feel confident that it will get better.
Talking about the regulations and safety measures regarding covid-19 in Portugal, at his given moment (October 24th, 2020) weddings are limited to 50 number of guests. This regulation was released by the government in October 14th due to the risen number of infections.
Having in mind the huge variety of venues which can offer celebrations in open air in country where at least 300 days in a year are sunny, we feel the situation here is already way better for couples then in let's say, the UK, where at the moment wedding reception is limited to 15 people only.
