Choose a wineyard or vinery in the Tuscany and Piedmont country as a wedding locations, have your ceremony under the Portico with beautiful view on the colored hills or inside an old wine cellar, with wooden barrels background. If you were planning a wedding in the fall, this would be perfect! The grape leaves are starting to turn beautiful with rich fall colors. These vibrant hues can suggest your color scheme of rust, burgundy, purple, gold, orange, brown, yellow, olive green, and cream. You reception can be decorated with pumpkins, chestnuts, walnuts, and grapes. Another reason that a winery is perfect for a Wedding in Piedmont or Tuscany, is the wine! Toast with Spumante ( sparkling wine) from Asti County or served your guests Brunello di Montalcino, Chianti Classico or Barolo during your dinner.
In Spring, I suggest the beautiful Italian Lakes District, in this time of the year the villa’s gardens are filled with colorful flowers. The weather is nice and warm and charming lakeside villas and elegant italian gardens are the perfect venues for a romantic wedding in Italy . Enjoy a boat ride to Isola Bella on Lake Maggiore or a boat tour on Lake Como with stop on Villa Balbaniello or Villa Carlotta.
Dreaming a wedding on the beach? This is a good period for a beach wedding, as the weather is fine and the beaches are not croweded as in summer. In Italy you will have a great choice of sandy beaches, from the Italian Riviera and Emilia Romagna beaches to the beautiful coasts of Sardinia and Apulia.
Have your ceremony barefoot on the beach and then invites your guests for a dinner with the waves sound as background.
Amalfi Coast and Capri are amazing in spring, the sunny longer days and a good temperature, not so hot like in summer offer several outdoor venues. Spring is definitely a great time to have a wedding in Capri and in the Amalfi Coast; in spring, the whole place blossoms with greens and colourful flowers.
Summer is filled with Italian festivals and you’ll find them almost everywhere, from big cities to tiny villages. One of the most famous summer festivals is the Palio horse race in Siena, but many towns hold contests for a palio and medieval festivals are common. Avoid the cities, hot and stifling , choose the Lakes, Italian Riviera or the Umbria coutryside. Please consider that also the South of Italy is very hot, so choose very late afternoon ceremonies and dinner reception.
If you’re searching a quiet location, that offer peace and tranquility also in this period of the year, Umbria region can be the right option. Rent a farmhouse or a monastery for your family anf friends in the umbrian countryside and you will enjoy a very intimate and romantic wedding. Choose one of the beautiful churches of a religious ceremony or a panoramic terrace for a civil or blessing ceremony. Have an outdoor dinner under the stars with lots of candles on the tables and around. Decor the venues with sunflowers and poppies. Offer your guests the regional wines and food and end the party with magic sky lanterns!
