Italy wedding venue: how to choose the one that best suits your needs.
Choosing your wedding venue in Italy is one of the first choices you need to make when starting to plan your destination wedding.
It is certainly in the top 3 of the most important decisions you will have to make (the other 2 are the local wedding planner and the husband).
How to choose a Italy wedding venue
As we said this is a very important choice. Not only does the wedding venue have to be in line with the style of the wedding you want to have, but it also has to have some “technical” features that will help you in planning all the details that revolve around a destination wedding.
Here we give you 5 tips that you should take into mind when making your choice.
Comfortable position to reach.
When you start your search, take into account where the wedding venue is located.
It should have convenient connections to airports and train stations.
You could, for example, consider arranging transfers for your guests from the point of arrival, such as the airport, to where they will be staying.
This will be very much appreciated but make sure you plan it carefully from the start.
Let’s continue talking about the well-being of your guests.
We suggest you choose a wedding venue in Italy that has the ability to accommodate guests for the days leading up to and (at least) after the wedding.
If it does not have internal accommodation, make sure it is close to accommodation that guests can use.
The accommodation should not be far from the wedding venue and getting there should be as easy and convenient as possible.
Choose the right size for your wedding venue in Italy
The right size of a venue is a detail that few brides think about.
They usually focus on the aesthetic aspect (which is obviously fundamental), leaving out this detail of the right size.
We’ll let you in on a secret…
The wedding venue must be the right size for your needs (yes, you heard me right, just like a dress).
If you choose one that is too big, it will look like there are only a few people at your wedding and the effect will not be good!
If you choose one that is too small, you run the risk of it looking crowded. People will find it difficult to move around and the effect won’t look good either.
So choose what you like but in the right size.
Choose an Italy wedding venue that has more space.
As you can see, we place a lot of importance on space management for the wedding venue.
In fact, space is important for the success of the event and also for the effect you want from the scenery.
We recommend that you choose a wedding venue in Italy that has both beautiful outdoor spaces and elegant indoor spaces.
If you decide to get married in spring or summer and are planning an outdoor wedding, you will definitely want to consider venues with beautiful gardens.
But be careful!
Make sure they have equally beautiful indoor venues because if it rains or it’s too hot, having shelter will be essential.
If you decide to get married in autumn or winter, your focus will be on venues with the most atmospheric rooms.
Take the outside area into account for 2 reasons:
- Your guests will be greeted on arrival by the gardens or the courtyard or the tree-lined avenue. This is like the theatre foyer, it welcomes guests and determines their first impression of the event.
- You can also think about organising special moments using the outside areas. Such as the ceremony.

Keep the season in mind
The season in which you organise your wedding obviously determines the whole mood.
From graphics and choreography to the logistical choices of the Italy wedding venue.
When you are considering the perfect venue for your wedding, always keep in mind the temperatures expected at that time.
Based on these temperatures, you can decide how to organise your reception.
If it’s going to be a scorcher, try to provide cool places where you and your guests can find shade and coolness.
If you’re getting married in colder weather, make sure the indoor venues are well heated (if you can find one with a fireplace, that would be ideal).
The perfect choice for an Italy wedding venue
As you have read, the choice of destination wedding venue cannot be a random choice.
You have to think it through, take many things into account and only then, you can say “Yes I do”.
That’s why our advice is always to choose a wedding planner who specialises in destination weddings to help you make these choices and suggest suitable venues based on their knowledg (before you go crazy looking for this solution).
