It’s no secret that I love an Italian destination wedding. In fact, I had one! From the rolling hills of Tuscany to the lemon-scented beaches of Amalfi, there’s something truly magical about celebrating your wedding in such a beautiful and romantic place. But even if you’re planning a wedding in Surrey or London, that doesn’t mean you can’t recreate an authentic Italian style celebration. With the right details and some clever styling, a slice of la dolce vita can be yours!
Here are a handful of ideas for how to create an Italian style wedding, wherever you are.
Incorporate olive leaf details
Opt for Italian style eating
Dine al fresco
Mix old world and rustic details
Give Italian-inspired favours
Be sure to send your guests home with a taste of Italy too! Many Italian-style favours are easy to find or even make yourself. For example, little bottles of rosemary infused olive oil, limoncello, or sachets of mixed herbs. Or you could opt for the traditional Italian favour of confetti (sugared almonds). Each guest should receive five almonds, symbolising health, wealth, happiness, fertility, and a long life.
Now that’s something to celebrate! Salute!
