If your wedding daydreams feature fairytale castles, wineries, historic villages, or Mediterranean feasts, planning your big day in Europe can make them a reality. You'll enjoy singular settings for ceremonies and receptions, while your guests choose their own adventures, be it admiring Renaissance masterpieces or people-watching at an outdoor café. Head for the hills above art-filled Florence to reach Il Salviatino, a 15th-century villa-turned-boutique hotel full of luxurious touches, including a gourmet restaurant (with its own organic gardens), a spa, and 45 rooms and suites. Vows can be exchanged in the main house or anywhere in the acres of private parkland; on the terraced gardens, with views of Florence's Duomo, is a top pick. History and romance are also at the core of Lisbon's Pestana Palace Hotel, a former palace whose gardens have been designated a National Monument. The 193 rooms are elegant, refreshed, and generally more affordable than comparable properties—making the hotel, like Portugal, one of Europe's more wallet-friendly options. Wedding festivities can be held outside, or in one of the many cocktail and banquet rooms in the events complex, a converted 19th-century coach house with views of the River Tagus.
