I know quite a few people that have married here. Depends what sort of wedding you want.

I married a PT person here but we were both living in the UK when we were married. I'm not sure had we both been English we'd have been allowed to marry in the church...we had to have pre-nuptial lessons in the UK and show a certificate, have our banns read in the UK, go to lessons here. Funnily enough the priest supposedly marrying us decided to go away for the weekend so we had some drunkard priest who had allies giving out anti-abortion leaflets to our guests without my knowledge...and we then had a call from our usual priest the next day to say we weren't officially married as the drunk one had not got us to sign in the right place on the register!!!

I know of 2 brits married here but they had a register office wedding in the UK then a blessing in the church. No-one but 2 witnesses went to the register office ceremony so the church blessing was treated as their 'official' ceremony. I would have thought it would be easy to have a register office wedding here, or a beach wedding but not so easy for a church wedding. They tried to put us off even with my husband being from here.

I am preparing to be married here to a Portuguese citizen (I am from the USA) and understand from him that we have to post banns for 30 days, prove that we are free to marry and go from there. One of the requirements is that one of you has been living here for at least 30 days. I hear it is much easier to go to Gibraltar than to marry in Portugal, but I really can't image it being so.

My friend gets married in Lagos later this year and they are both British citizens. The venue is a hotel and she has arranged everything directly with them, as a package, with a holiday included. Some things she has chosen herself and some things she has had provided by the hotel. Not sure if she is just having a civil ceremony or not, but I can ask if you wish.

You will never make a good speech if you ask about jokes on the Internet. If you need jokes, remember the funny stories with you and the groom and tell them, jokes must be personalized. When I was preparing my speech I found http://www.weddingforward.com/best-man-speech/ and their advice was really helpful. Read this article and maybe it will help you too.
