The Italian Landscapes | Biggest reason to get married in Italy!

Italy provides an immense diversity in locations and type of scenery! I truly think this is probably the best reason to get married in Italy. No matter what type of scenery you’re looking for–Italy’s got it! If you want a beautiful coastal elopement then you can elope somewhere on the Amalfi Coast–or literally anywhere on the sea, because it’s all so incredible. If you want a stunning mountain elopement then the Italian Dolomites are where it’s at! To be honest, the Dolomites are by far my favorite part of Italy because they are so unique and jaw dropping. If you’re dying to stroll through some vineyards then Tuscany or the Piedmont are for you. So, as you can already tell the options could go on for days!

Enjoy an Italy Honeymoon

Why not honeymoon in the same epic country that you got married in?! Especially when it’s as beautiful as Italy! This is one thing I absolutely love about destination elopements or weddings. You get to save money, because you don’t have to travel to a different place and let’s be real, everybody loves to save money when they can. I always tell people that when you travel from one region to the next in Italy that it feels like you’re in a completely different country because of how different they are. So, why not get married in the Dolomites and then head to the Piedmont to enjoy all the wine for your honeymoon!

Summer or Winter Italy Wedding

The weather from May-October is very beautiful and sunny! During August it can get humid, but depending on where you are that isn’t even the case. The winters are pretty mild as well! Of course, if you’re in the mountains then that’s a different story, but who doesn’t love a beautiful winter elopement as well?! You really can’t go wrong.

The Italian Food and Wine

This just speaks for itself! Indulge yourself in all the pasta, lasagna, pizza and wine. It’s pretty dang difficult to go wrong when choosing a meal and a glass of vino to go along with your dinner! I actually didn’t like wine until I went to Italy. Everyone told me “Oh, you’ll definitely start to like wine when you’re there,” and I thought, “Yeah. Ok, sure. That’s not going to happen.” BUT, what do you know—I went to Italy and now all I want to drink is a glass of wine! The food here is pretty unbeatable.

    Personally I wouldn’t need a reason to get married in Italy other than hey it’s Italy haha But if I did you definitely made me want to get married there. This was such a great post.

    I saw your blog post on the Facebook group! Yours is the only one I clicked on so this is a genuine comment. :]
    Do you think that people are doing this symbolically or do your couple actually legally get married here? What is your experience with that because I am finding that it is impractical to legally marry in Italy.

    Hey Brittany! Yes, all the couples I work with who get married in Italy have a symbolical intimate wedding/elopement. It’s so much easier and avoids the hassle of dealing with the Italian paperwork, etc. Are you looking to get married in Italy??!

    Ooh yes I am definitely an advocate for people traveling and seeing the best that the world has to offer. Italy definitely seems like it has no shortage of amazing food, views and things to do!

    I 100% agree with your list, especially the food part, haha. People that have never travelled to Italy are missing out. And an elopement is just the perfect excuse to visit and have your perfect honeymoon right away too!
