The first step in planning a Wedding on the Dolomites?
Catch the best Wedding Venue!
One of the things couples most worry about when they contact us is locating the right wedding venue.
It’s a commonplace that couples request us to have their guests having they stay in the same venue.
We know how important it is for you to have all your guests together during your destination wedding in Italy.
Our experience and knowledge of the Dolomites and Alps’ territory are fundamental assets we use to find a suitable solution for you and your guest after a long travel!
By working throughout the Italian mountain territory and getting used to satisfying every extravagant need of our clientele, we gained the opportunity to get in touch with many charming, cozy, and exclusive wedding venues and breathtaking locations in the Alps, South Tyrol, Cortina d’Ampezzo, Val Gardena (Gröden), Alta Badia, Marmolada, Seiser Alm, Colfosco, Corvara in Badia, and many other popular locations all over the Dolomites, such as Lake Braies, Tre Cime di Lavaredo, Cadini di Misurina and Seceda.
We know that for a destination wedding in Italy, it is essential not only for a beautiful setting but the accessibility and security; hence for this purpose, we, as your local wedding planners in the Dolomites, will advise you on the best solution for your guests’ arrival and accommodation.
What should be considered when selecting a wedding venue in the Dolomites?
1) The backup plan for you and your guests!
You know that in the Mountain the weather change quickly and it’s impossible to predict even hours before what will happen.
But one thing is sure: we are happy to teach you that.
The higher your venue is, the quicker the bad weather will disappear because of the wind and different pressure.
Therefore if you are at least 2.000 meters and your ceremony is close to starting to be sad!
Just wait 20 minutes, and the cloud will be moved soon.
Maybe it won’t be the sunniest day ever, but believe us, we have seen many magical moments.
Things can change rapidly and positively!
Many Charming Hut and Refugee are located in areas that are reachable by car but only upon permission; therefore, it’s better to discuss with your wedding planner the best route to follow before planning and committing to the venue.
There is also a venue that can be reached by car and get their supplies, and you are obliged to take one or more cable care.
And sometimes, the cable car is far from each other, and there is a trekking session to make.
This could be entertaining for your guests, but you have to evaluate that elders and kids may not feel like facing this challenge.
3) Willingness to host a wedding
If you ask any venue landlord if they want to host your wedding, they will say, “of course we do.”
But things go pretty differently in the mountains, especially in Südtirol.
If you think you will design and plan everything and have all the quote and answer you’re looking for in a reasonable time, you are far from the idea of a wedding planner in the dolomites.
Of course, we know more structured venues for events, and these kinds of issues do not occur.
But as local planners, we frequently received requests from couples that got engaged at a specific place in the mountain with a beautiful and charming hut.
Every case and every owner must be debriefed before taking a decision, and that’s why we are here to advise you on the best solution for your wedding, elopement, or civil wedding in the Dolomites.
We have a lot of couples that love winter weddings, and we understand them because we love winter weddings too!
The thing is that winter itself is a big business in the Dolomites; therefore, several venues will only host your wedding if they are full of guests who have booked the place.
Or, in the best scenario, they will rent you the venue four times the price.
This is understandable; otherwise, hosting a wedding would be a significant loss for them!
So what? What will we do in winter? No weddings?
But of course, yes! We’ll plan your wedding here!
In our wedding platform, we have all the venues with no accommodation; therefore, accommodation is not their business; therefore, they don’t care if it is summer or winter.
In conclusion, Dolomites are a particular scenario for brave hearts who love the wild nature in the cozy and refined venue designed according to the Italian-german taste.
