Tips for a wedding in Italy

Planning a destination wedding in Italy

If you are planning a destination wedding in Italy there can be even more to consider that:
- not all suppliers speak English so you must be very patience and have to look for the right one
- your guests will have to travel and you have to be sure that their journey is perfectly organized

The easy way to have a perfect destination wedding in Italy is hire a professional wedding planner. It would be an Italian or foreign wedding planner specialized in destination weddings in Italy. So, virtually, you can choose a wedding planner from all around the world!

Why engage a wedding planner?

I really suggest you to entrust a wedding planner for two main reason:

1 - stress-free wedding planning and stress-free wedding days 

Organizing a destination wedding means making many choices: you need time to do research and be informed on each topic. This is not easy if you have a very full working life. The wedding planner will help you make the right choices for every wedding details. In this way you will get to the big day stress-free and you can be sure that everything will be fine that big day.

2 - the wedding planner overview the event design and takes care of every details with the suppliers.

If you want an impeccable wedding design you have to think about thousand things. The wedding planner is used to doing it and, above all, knows very well many supplier and can have a smarter dialogue with it.

...but if you prefer, for any reason, not hire a professional wedding planner, you will have to make many choises, and coordinate all the suppliers by yourself. Let's start!

DIY wedding

1. Kind of celebration

First you’ll need to think about the kind of celebration:
- Catholic ceremony in a Church;
- civil ceremony in a town hall;
- religious ceremony (different from Catholic);
- symbolic ceremony.

2. Venues

Now you have to choose the perfect venues for your wedding days: some brides go for vintage style wedding in a scenic Tuscan wine grove, whilst others prefer the rustic appeal of a barn-yard theme of a wedding in the typical Apulian farm house (Agriturismo or Masseria) and some soak up the year round sunshine with a beach wedding in Puglia or in Amalfi coast.

If you want to have an idea of the venues for a destination wedding in Italy, you can explore the venues where we have worked: see this map.

3. Flowers

Ok, you have chosen the locations for ceremony and for reception. Now you can think about flowers!
To choose the best florist for wedding in Italy, I suggest you to research on the different social media like Instagram, Facebook and Pinterest with the right keywords. This socials are based on pictures, so you can find the perfect florist with a quick look. If you prefer, you can do the research also using the IMAGE section of your searching engine. 
In both cases, you can research with these combinations:

"floral designer Italy"
"floral designer for wedding destination in Italy"
"floral designer Villa Tre Ville "
"best florist in Italiy"
"floral designer Sicily"

Select the images that you love and go back to the source: who made the floral decorations? Now you can go on the floral designer web-site and see his previous work. Is his style what are you looking for? In this way you can select two or three best floral designer in Puglia. Now you are ready to ask them for a quote. 
When you ask for a floral quote is very important that you specify all the infos you have about your wedding: date, venues, guests number, style etc...
The florist will make for you a first orientative quote, only to detect your budget. Once you reach with him a certain feeling, you are ready to book the date. From then, you can define together all the details of the wedding design.

ADVICE! Make sure the floral designers doesn't give the availability for too many events on the same date.
