Plan a unique Italian mountain wedding in the Dolomites

Very often, Italy results in being attractive for widespread and known places like Amalfi, Tuscany, Umbria, and so on.

But what many don’t really know is that there is a beautiful area in the north of Italy that is believed to be one of the world’s best mountain areas.

We are talking about the Dolomites, which have been declared “World Heritage” on June 26, 2009 by UNESCO.

The Dolomites well-known for being the greatest Italian skiing area, hosts a national park and eight natural parks.

They are divided into the provinces of Belluno, Bolzano, Trento, Udine, Pordenone, Vicenza, and Verona.

So why thinking about a wedding or elopement on the Italian Dolomites.

What could a couple plan in a place like this?

It is necessary to start by saying that this area is known for its high touristic attraction.

Therefore, there are many characteristic accommodation facilities, such as mountain chalets, lodges, retreats, hut and luxury hotels.

Also, the area is characterized by some places where local traditions are powerful and still present.

For example, the area of South Tyrol, which before the Second World War, was part of Austria, maintains many local traditions and customs such as the spoken language (German), clothing, food, and the typical Tyrolean architecture of the so-called “Hütte.”

In case the budget is lower than usual or couple’s preferences are more oriented to simplicity, you can’t miss to consider, Bavarian style hotels and venues in South Tyrol.

These are usually family-run business that are less expensive than luxury mountain retreats but can give you a more warm welcome and guarantee a cozy and intimate atmosphere.
