Why you should get married in a museum?

Picture this…

Yes, I am a romantic. Not to me though, for all the others. I imagine fairy tales, dreamy venues, a lively and lovely atmosphere at weddings. I must confess I am amazed by little details. Something that just makes that wedding stands out. I dream of a wedding like the one from ‘The Vow’, yeah, the movie…

What can I say? I am indeed a hopeless romantic. A minimum number of guests, only the closest… And if one of them happens to be a photographer, even better!! In a museum, yes, an art museum, surrounded by art.

Doesn’t that give a whole other touch of elegance to it?! There is no need for all the running away from the security guard scene (although that does add up a share dose of excitement and adventure). To get married in a museum… Imagine having Delacroix, Renoir or Van Gogh as the backdrop of your wedding album. THE dream!

The Metropolitan Museum in New York, the Louvre or d’Orsay in Paris seem like the most idyllic setting of such scenery. Even if you have a priest officiating the ceremony or one of your friends, this idea can, in fact, become reality. And even if you are not that much into art, why not choose the museum of natural history while saying ‘I do’ underneath a skeleton of a real dinosaur? That sure ticks the wow-factor off the-must-have-list!

And fear not, our beautiful Portugal has some of these spots too, with the Museu de Arte Antiga, the newly debuted MAAT or Coleção Berardo, in Lisbon and Palácio da Bolsa, Museu de Serralves or even Livraria Lello, in Porto – just to name a few.

All of which allow a wow-factor, something that can take your wedding to the next level, a cut above the rest.

And not only can the museums be chosen as the venue for the ceremony but also, if wished, for the reception. Awe-inspiring art and architecture will surely be present in the wedding photos. If you either love art or

If you either love art or science, this surely seems like a great way of living the day of your dreams!

Inspire yourself!
