Choice of venues

There is a huge choice of wedding venues throughout Italy such as lakeside mansions, historical villas, castles, vineyards and luxury hotels. Consider the style and atmosphere you'd like for your Italian wedding to narrow down your options. For example, do you want a rustic vibe with dinner and dancing under the stars, or would you prefer a more formal event with a timeless feel? Are you looking to host your guests in the venue for a few nights, or arrangement separate accommodations and just come together for the wedding itself?

Food and drink

Italian cuisine is famous all over the world for good reason. With its fresh produce and authentic cuisine, Italy is a foodie paradise and your guests and family will reminisce about the delicious Italian food they had at your wedding for years to come. Italian wedding feasts are typically several courses and last late into the night. The wine options are plentiful in Italy especially with all the vineyards around producing local wines and prosecco, which will help to make your wedding a real gastronomic experience.

Guest activities

The highlight of being invited to a destination wedding is getting to travel to another country, perhaps for the first time, so encourage your guests to allow time for sightseeing and local activities. Couples who choose to get married in Italy often put together suggestions of local sites to visit and things to do and include that in their invitation suite. From wine tasting to pasta making, boat trips to gallery tours, there really is something for everyone.
