Si mio amore – your wedding in Italy
If you are looking for somewhere romantic with delicious culinary traditions and rich historic settings, there’s no need to go far! A quick plane ride brings you to Italy, one of the most picture-perfect European wedding destinations. From the rolling hills of Tuscany to the stunning Lake Como, it would be very difficult not to find the perfect Italian spot for your wedding.
In Kim’s footsteps
Getting married in another country can be tricky. Language barriers aside, it is a lot to ask your family and friends to spend on tickets and accommodation. Finding a destination that is universally attractive and easily accessible goes a long way when asking your guests to pack their suitcases.
Just a few hours away, Italy has always been on the destination wedding map. Recently, the country has become even more popular thanks to several high-profile celebrity weddings. Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel, John Legend and Chrissy Teigen, and, of course, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West all married in Italy over the past two years.
It is easy to understand why. Italy and the Italians are forever associated with romance (Romeo and Juliet was set in Verona after all) and the country is just bursting with picturesque little towns ready to host your wedding.
I can see my dream Italian wedding now: a small ceremony in a lemon tree garden followed by an intimate reception at a beach front restaurant where a delicious Italian seafood buffet would leave no guest feeling less than blissful.
After the wedding day, we would spend the honeymoon in Sardinia, learning enough Italian to use during morning trips to the bakery, enjoying long dips in turquoise waters, and eating way too much Nutella flavoured gelato…
It is in moments like these that I wish I could get married all over again. Although, I have to say, all this daydreaming is giving me a lot of inspiration for my upcoming anniversary holiday!
