Winter Wedding in Italy
Think Different and be bold!
Ever thought that everyone seems to get married in June?
But a winter wedding can be totally glamorous, cinematic, and magical. With the right elements, your winter wedding in Italy will be a wonderland.
In Italy there are wonderful places to organize your mountain wedding. Our favorite place and geographical core business area is South Tyrol. Ever heard about this particular region in Italy where people speak both Italian and German?
The winter wedding Attire
Think about you and your partner in the elegant look, the groom in tails, and the bride in a long white silk dress with purple fur. It would be interesting to evoke the winter season with diamonds and pearls on the gown. Using wraps, shrugs, and capes, or dramatic coats could result in a perfect combination. The bride in a white dress and a large red shawl rolled up against the groom dressing a red boutonnière makes a striking contrast. And what about bridesmaids? An attractive wrap to wear on the day of the wedding could be very appropriate.
Look for a chalet with a fireplace that is going to leave your guests breathless. For larger ceremonies, you may use a historic lodge or a castle to maintain an intimate, warm atmosphere. Big rooms with large picture windows are the best solution you can have during winter events, even though snowflakes might miss on the wedding day. Don’t forget to consider adequate heating during your event.
We personally suggest the Tyrolese cuisine inspired by the old tradition in Südtirol, “Kasspatzln”, “Canederli”, “Mezzelune”, Rosticciata “Gröstl” and for the sweet “Sacher” cake and “Strüdel”.
Winter Wedding Flowers
A wedding inspired by silver and white elegance should be decorated with dusty miller, silver-dollar eucalyptus, baby blue eucalyptus, eventually mixed with white flowers such as roses and football mums crocus, lilies, and stephanotis. For a bright bouquet, red roses with holly and pine-tree greenery evoke the forest and woods’ tonalities.
Décor for Your Winter Wedding
A mise en place with white poinsettias, bright red cranberries in a bowl surrounding floating candles, a room enlightened light by pillar candles on a bed of pine branches, stock up on strands of small white lights, stringing them around doorways, over tables, and on archways.
Favors for Your Guests?
Get inspired by the place! Give them some good warm small blanket, a map of the places to visit, or a brochure suggesting activities (i.e., ice-skating, skiing) or invite them to play in a competition all together fighting with snowballs, live it with the joy even though it is cold!
