Weddings in Italy

There are so many compelling reasons to get married in Italy. Tying the knot with the love of your life should be the happiest and most memorable event in your life, and it can be when stunning Italian landscapes provide the backdrop.

A combination of stunning scenery and centuries of tradition make weddings in Italy particular romantic. Whether you get married by the shore of Lake Garda or high in the mountains, you and your partner are assured of an occasion you'll never forget. But to ensure your day is the best it can possibly be, it's always a good idea to place its planning in the hands of an experienced and knowledgeable wedding planner in Italy.

 

What Is So Special About an Italian Wedding?

 

You will find almost every type of landscape and scenery in Italy. Weddings here are often spectacular, whether they take place on secluded beaches, in the mountains or by breathtaking natural lakes.

Italian weddings are also known for their incredible food. Depending on where in Italy you tie the knot, you can expect to feast on classic pasta dishes, fresh seafood and a wide range of locally grown fresh vegetables. Italians are known for their love of food, so you can rest assured this will be high on the agenda of any Italian wedding planner.

Italy is also famous for its unique marital customs. For example, the bride often wears a traditional garter, which the groom is expected to remove and tear in pieces - before sharing it with family members. In some regions of the country, the garter is thrown into a crowd of guests. If a garter isn't worn, a shoe can be used.

Another interesting wedding tradition in certain areas of Italy is one that forbids the bride from even looking at herself in a mirror before she's fully dressed in her wedding attire. In areas such as Tuscany, women were once married in a black dress and white hat. And in Venice, an old tradition calls for the finest of two wedding dresses to be worn after the ceremony.

You can sample many of these wonderful traditions by getting married in Italy yourself. Allow HeraEl to guide you through the wedding process from start to finish. From organising the food to booking a premium wedding venue, Elena and her team will work tirelessly to ensure your big day in Italy is one you'll remember forever.
