What is a destination wedding in Italy?
Dreaming of saying your ‘Yes, I do’ away from home? Organise a destination wedding in Italy
The Destination Wedding is a trend that is increasingly in vogue in our country but which comes from overseas. The expression destination wedding refers to a wedding organised and celebrated far from one’s city of residence, preferably in a dream location.
Destination wedding? Yes, in Italy
Italy has always been a much sought-after destination for foreign couples of future brides and grooms, who find the countryside, coastline and typical landscapes of our territory romantic and fascinating. But that’s not all… More and more Italian couples are also choosing to pronounce their ‘I do’s’ in a romantic fairytale location, still in Italy but far from their home town.
The destination wedding is a very romantic wedding celebrated in a dream location that becomes the perfect setting to celebrate the birth of a sacred union.
This will be the first in a series of articles dedicated to destination weddings in Italy. It will be a journey up and down the peninsula to discover the most sought-after destinations for destination weddings in 2023. Ready to go?
The destination wedding often turns into an entire weekend dedicated to the celebration of the wedding, which is why, even if it often involves fewer people than a more traditional wedding, it requires precise and punctual organisation.
If the bride and groom are foreigners, most of the planning of the event is often done remotely and well in advance, so that the bride and groom and all the guests can reach the wedding venue on time and without a hitch.
In addition to logistics, in a destination wedding another fundamental detail that should not be underestimated concerns the bureaucratic aspects to be considered when celebrating the wedding. If it is a real religious or civil ceremony, one must make sure that the marriage is also considered valid in the couple’s country of residence. This problem does not exist if the couple chooses to celebrate a symbolic rite.
Why choose to celebrate a destination wedding?
There are many reasons why couples choose a destination wedding for their wedding, but I believe it is the suggestive and emotional atmosphere that is created around the couple that makes this type of wedding unique. The sincere affection of close relatives and close friends surrounds the couple and the most beautiful moments of the ceremony and celebration become even more emotional when they take place in a secluded location, where the protagonists are the pure and sincere feelings of two lovers who pronounce their promises of love.
