 The 3 events to plan for a destination wedding.

A destination wedding is certainly a more involved event than a wedding close to home and usually lasts about 3 days.
It is usual to plan 3 separate events for guests, to make them feel comfortable and to spend as much time as possible all together to party.

The 3 events that are planned are: the welcome dinner the day before the wedding, the wedding party, and the breakfast or branch, the day after the wedding.

 The welcome dinner: a preview of the Italian dream

The wedding journey begins with a welcome dinner, an intimate occasion that welcomes guests in an informal setting.

Imagine a terrace overlooking Tuscan vineyards or a coastal garden illuminated by the light of sunset.

This event creates meaningful connections between guests, preparing them for the unique experience that awaits them.

The Wedding: an unforgettable day

The big day is a masterpiece that reflects the magic of Italy and the mood of the bride and groom.

Ancient villas, historic churches or enchanted beaches serve as the setting for your exchange of vows.

Delicious food, fine wine and enveloping music create a timeless atmosphere.

Consider customised elements, such as details related to your culture or a symbolic Italian ritual, to make this day truly unique.

 The farewell breakfast or brunch

After the wedding day, a farewell brunch or breakfast offers the opportunity to bring the experience to a festive close.

It could take place in an outdoor garden or in an elegant hall, depending on your style.

It is the perfect time to thank guests and share sweet memories before everyone embarks on their journey.
