If you’re planning a destination wedding, Italy may be the location on the top of your list. Here are some important tips to keep in mind when planning.

Tips for an Italian Destination Wedding

If you are planning to elope, maybe your dreams have swept you off to one of the most romantic places on earth: Italy. Maybe you are planning a small, intimate gathering or a big, extravagant affair with all your friends and loved ones present. Whatever the case may be, keep in mind these tips when planning your nuptials in Italy.

Location: Italy has some of the best and most diverse terrain to choose from, whether it be the seaside, countryside, a Medieval village or the mountains. Consider where you want to be and what kind of backdrop you want to wedding (and more importantly, wedding photos) set against. Do you want to be celebrate your reception atop a cliff overlooking turquoise waters or do you want to walk down the aisle in the lush, green countryside? Also, opt for those locations that are not “the usual.” Usually these will end up being very touristy, overpriced and overcrowded. Instead of Tuscany, go for Umbria. Instead of the Amalfi Coast, go for Sicily or Calabria.

Time of Year: This goes hand in hand with the location. Italy boasts quite mild temperatures year round, but remember that if your wedding plans take you to the south of Italy, July and August can be quite hot, sometimes unbearably hot, and air conditioning is not exactly a priority in many parts of Italy. Not to mention this is peak season for Italian tourists, which means more crowds and higher prices than normal. Opt for April, May or September and October.

Accommodation: Consider hosting your wedding in a place where your guests will be provided lodging as well. Since you’ll be bringing everyone to a foreign country, you want to make it as easy for everyone as possible and not have people staying in all different locations. Go for places that offer a package that include guest lodging, or maybe even look into villa rentals if you’re celebrating with an intimate group of friends.

Hire a planner: After you’ve got a basic idea of the first three points, hire somebody who knows the country, speaks English, and most importantly, is based in Italy. Local weddings planners will know the best locations and be able to coordinate everything for you before the wedding. They can take care of everything from venue to accommodation and transportation for your guests. Most will put together a tailormade wedding package for you and will even be able to coordinate activities for you and your guests post wedding.

The natural beauty of Italy and all it has to offer awaits you, the bride-to-be. Take the stress and hassle out of the day by considering these tips and then get in touch with a local planner to iron out all the details for the perfect wedding day.
