Dear readers, we made a new year’s resolution and the work to accomplish it starts right away. We want to enter 2017 with a prettier, smarter, cleaner website, so we need to take a break from our blog’s posts and put our hands to it.
For the time being, do enjoy all the beautiful things we’ve posted until now and browse our content on Portugal and the perks of coming here to have your dream wedding. And now is the perfect time to start following us on Instagram, @wearethedestination, if you still didn’t get around to do so.
We will be very busy redesigning our website so that everything comes together until the end of the year. Stay tuned, you do not want to miss our epic comeback!
Oh, it smells heavenly around here today! That’s Claus Porto for you: a Portuguese beauty and fragrance brand that was founded in 1887 and will be turning 130 years old in 2017, but just keeps on surprising us.

Fall is definitely here to stay, but warm days still linger in our minds and in our hearts… fortunately Pinga Amor’s amazing floral design has the power to transport us to a gorgeous summer day in Portugal where, inspired by a rustic and organic feel, the beautiful Douro Palace Hotel was transformed into a fresh and elegant paradise, where linen, sackcloth, wooden boxes, detailed glass and kraft paper laid the foundation for the fragrant beauty spun by porcelain flowers, buttercups, baby’s breath, eustoma, eucalyptus, roses, peonies, viburnum and chrysanthemums. A white, ivory and natural green garden of love…
