Are you looking for the perfect enchanting destination to have an unforgettable wedding? You might be worried about the process. It surely takes some time when you’re a foreigner in some countries. Well, worry no more! Getting married in Italy is the perfect choice, and here is why:
Getting married in Italy will provide you with many artistic backdrops. You could choose whatever suits your taste and wedding theme. Starting from Tuscan hills if you’re a nature lover. Lake Como as it has plenty of scenic places close to the water. And let’s not forget about the spectacular coastlines! For example, Amalfi coast. Each region in Italy surely has its unique vibe! All you got to do is to imagine the perfect wedding scenario, set a budget and voila! Everything is possible in the land where Romeo and Juliet’s story took place!
Can you name a person who doesn’t like pizza? Pizza lovers are so many, right? But still, you can get that from any local restaurant! And your guests would be looking forward for more than just pizza! Luckily, the Italian cuisine is very rich. And guess what? A traditional wedding menu in Italy consists of 6 courses! Your guests will surely love you for this! Here are some traditional foods that you can also include in your wedding menu: Mozzarella di Buffala, Fritturas, Prosciutto di Parma and Tiramisu!
When it comes to drinks, you have plenty of choices! Limoncello for example, which is the local specialty of Amalfi Coast, Sorrento, and Capri. It’s made with alcohol, sugar, and lemon zest. Prosecco, known as the Italian champagne, is the perfect welcoming drink! As well as Spritz which consists of prosecco, Aperol, and a splash of soda water garnished with a fresh slice of orange.
The sweet Bellini, which is colorful and full of flavor, is the perfect go-to for a summer wedding.
This point worries many people, but it’s Italy we’re talking about here! A legal wedding in Italy is easier than you think and the process is pretty quick! Regardless where you’re coming from, the wedding planner by your side will help you register your marriage easily in Italy.
Aside from the fact that historical buildings and ancient sites will be surrounding you, you can also enjoy some of the Italian wedding traditions with your guests! For example, giving Bomboniere to guests as an act of appreciation for their presence. Another tradition is throwing rice at the couple coming out of the Church or wedding hall to symbolize a shower of fertility!
Another sweet authentic tradition is what’s called “La Serenata”. It happens in the pre-wedding night. The groom secretly organizes a serenade and stands under the bride’s window along with musicians to sing! It’s marked as “mission accomplished” if the bride wakes up to the charming melody!
Italians are known for their warm generous gestures. Imagine if they hear that you’re getting married in Italy! They’d be happy for you and offer all their traditions to make your wedding even more memorable. Hospitality is shown in many forms, almost in every Italian family!
Before we get into this, you should consider what wedding theme you have always dreamt about! Because getting married in Italy will give you many choices! From Luxurious hotels and castles to simple yet charming historical villas and lakeside mansions. It also depends on the region you choose. To make the story short, you can make any scenario come to life in the land of love, Italy!
From the breathtaking beauty of artistic cities like Rome, Venice, and Florence to the stunning beauty and calmness of the countryside in Tuscany, Lombardy, and Sicily. Italy has it all, from mountains to seas. Although each city has a unique vibe, you’ll definitely sense the romantic aura surrounding you and your loved one all around Italy!
Can you imagine, as a wedding photographer, how excited I can be to photograph each corner of these amazing landscapes with my couples on the foreground!
Two birds with one stone! Since you’re already in Italy, why not go around the country during your honeymoon as well? This will also help you save money. You don’t have to leave the country to have precious memories! If you had your wedding in Tuscany, then maybe you should go to Amalfi coast and get a tan while relaxing on the beach. If you’re more into art, then Florence it is! If you seek a romantic destination, you guessed it! Venice of course! Venice is a place that makes you romanticize your life, even if it wasn’t your intention! In simple words, you’ll get to enjoy the Dolce Vita!
Have you ever wondered why we love Italy so much? Perhaps the American novelist Erica Jong described it best when she said “What is the fatal charm of Italy? What do we find there that can be found nowhere else? I believe it is a certain permission to be human, which other places, other countries, lost long ago.”
With all the perks mentioned above, what are you waiting for? What’s stopping you? If it’s your dream to get married in Italy, go now! Have a pleasing time in the land of love!
