Always dreamed of a destination wedding in Italy, but it just never worked out that way? Who says you can’t transform your local wedding venue into one that reminds you of that beautiful European location? Here are some ways to take that style way beyond just serving pasta for dinner, that will transport you to that stunning destination.
Your wedding stationery really is the starting point for the style of your day. This is a little window into what is to come, when guests receive this envelope in the mail. Start to incorporate that gorgeous style from here, as a basis for the day.
Include citrus & lemons
An iconic way to get that Amalfi look into your day, and the pops of colour are so fun and vibrant.
Add in some of that old-world tradition, and incorporate some pieces that bring in that touch of gold for luxury. This may include cutlery, your cake serving set, cake stand, charger plates.
Use what you can from your surroundings
If you’re hosting your day in amongst a beautiful garden, take full advantage of this. Enhance the surrounding greenery, without taking away from it.
Vines & greenery
Not only cost effective, but true to this stunning style. Save yourself on flowers and utilise greenery garlands and vines, and foliage in your arrangements to give your space some life.
Rustic over modern
To keep your style true, select furniture pieces that are more rustic than modern. Think rich woods, stone, neutral warm colours, rather than modern pieces.
Have some fun with the food
Feature your menu like the Italians would. Speak with your venue or caterer in how they can incorporate the menu in different ways to bring out that incredible vibe.
Don’t forget the favours too
There are so many great ideas for favours that will work well with this style, think bottles of olive oil or balsamic vinegar, olives, loaves of bread, herbs. Finish your favours off with a personalised tag for that extra touch.
