At Richfield Regency, our professional wedding planners are trained in the traditions and customs that take place during a Portuguese wedding. Portuguese wedding ceremonies usually consist of a Roman Catholic mass, where traditionally the priest would bind the couple’s hands with his stole, or call for the bride and groom to exchange rings, and then cover the couple with his stole, to unite and protect them. When the newlyweds exit the chapel, friends and relatives customarily throw bonbons and flowers instead of tossing rice. This knowledge regarding the specific aspects of the ceremony allows for our expert wedding planners to tailor all the details of your wedding accordingly.
Portuguese wedding receptions generally involve traditional music and a great deal of dancing. At our Portuguese wedding venue in NJ, we can accommodate any entertainment you wish to have at your reception. Also during the reception, there is an ancient custom of passing the bride’s shoe around to all the guests, to receive monetary donations that will help the couple set up their new home. Another important part of the reception is called Copo d’ Agua. During this ritual, the bride and groom go from table to table to spend time with their guests, and ensure that everyone is having a good time and enjoying their meal.
A consultation will also be held by Richfield Regency’s catering professionals in order to create the menu you have always wanted at our Portuguese wedding venue in NJ. A Portuguese wedding tradition includes a grand Seafood Buffet where guest can enjoy traditional recipes like Pastel de Bacalhau, Recois, Arroz de Marisco and Carne a Alentejana, and it usually includes traditional cakes and pastries like Pastel De Nata, Arroz Doce e Pudim Flan.
