A wedding is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful events of one’s life, and managing all the related activities is certainly challenging. Among the endless steps of organising a wedding there is also the choice of location for the reception and ceremony, often a key point to allow friends and relatives to enjoy a unique day. But which venue should you choose for your destination wedding? In the following lines we will try to understand why the perfect destination for your wedding is Italy.
The most beautiful country in the world
You’ve probably heard the phrase “Italy is the most beautiful country in the world” a thousand times, and although it may sound parochial and obvious, travelling around Europe you realise just how true this statement can be. The eclectic nature of Italy, with an almost magical morphology that highlights wonderful climates and settings ideal for your destination wedding, is the best way to celebrate in style. Italy is one of the most popular countries for celebrities to celebrate their weddings; often unfamiliar locations provide the backdrop for an unforgettable setting in which guests and the bride and groom can immerse themselves with wonder. The settings provided by this country allow you to celebrate a wedding like a film, in which you can feel at ease and enhance the video and photographic service.
The characteristics that determine the great quality of weddings in Italy are the climate and the breathtaking views. The great history and artistic treasures found throughout the country offer scenery to be immortalised not only in the dedicated shoot but above all in your heart. The climate, too, is fundamental to being able to experience a wonderful day, as many countries are characterised by constant rain or torrid days where too much sun is often not pleasant. The mild Italian climate allows you to enjoy a peaceful day where it is important that everything goes as planned. The reasons listed above give you an idea of how ideal it is to celebrate your wedding in Italy, whether you are planning a winter or summer wedding in which you will always find the perfect setting.
The ideal venue
The wide variety of choices may confuse you in opting for one venue over another, so the question is: where to get married in Italy? More and more foreign couples are choosing to celebrate their wedding in Italy in the most exclusive venues, making the most of outdoor spaces. If you also love outdoor venues, you’ll have plenty to choose from in Italy: beautiful beaches or large terraces overlooking the sea will offer all the beauty your eyes deserve.
If, on the other hand, you are more inclined towards an indoor wedding, where solemnity and elegance are the most important key, the artistic heritage will be able to give you a big hand: historical palaces, medieval castles and small corners of paradise will guarantee you an almost magical event.
The most popular places for destination weddings
While Italy offers an infinite choice of beautiful locations, some destinations are more popular than others. Let’s see which Italian locations are the most beautiful and most popular for weddings in exclusive locations.
Lake Como: Although Italy offers magnificent views all along the coast, there are a few places in particular that will stay in your heart forever, and celebrating your wedding in Lake Como would be an excellent choice. An enchanting landscape that will surprise and excite you.
Tuscany and Umbria: these two regions, the first in particular, offer an artistic treasure that few places in the world can replicate. In fact, they offer magnificent backdrops for your wedding in Tuscany, with hills and medieval villages of irresistible charm. Cottages and castles are the order of the day and you can recreate a themed, upmarket setting.
Venice: foreigners are very attached to this city, synonymous with great culture and a history that seems never-ending. The famous city on the water offers you a fairytale setting, plus great luxury hotels and the possibility of having your wedding in Venice, whether civil or religious, in a rare setting.
Amalfi Coast: If you love the sea and above all the view, a wedding in the Amalfi Coast may be the solution that will excite you most for the rich villas and enchanting gardens that lend themselves to the celebration of the most beautiful and elegant weddings. But just a few kilometres away you can also enjoy the most illustrious: Capri, Ischia, Positano and Sorrento, almost surreal settings that you absolutely cannot overlook when making your choice.
Apulia: the region of Apulia, with its coastline full of beautiful beaches and corners of paradise with pine forests and enchanting woods, can be a perfect destination for your beach wedding or your wedding in masseria. From the most evocative trulli of the Itria Valley to the crystal clear sea of Salento, you can enjoy a land where nature and care for the environment are characteristic prerogatives.
In short, Italy is a country where choosing the location for your wedding is not easy, as it is full of beauty and magical atmospheres. In fact, don’t forget to mention the possibility of celebrating your wedding in Sicily, your wedding in Liguria or your wedding in Rome, where you will find equally wonderful backdrops and landscapes spiced with so much history that will surprise and fascinate you.
