Weddings in Tuscany is the dream of many young couples from around the world.
To spend the most beautiful day of your life and say the fateful “yes” in a land so rich in art, history, good food and hospitality, makes such a special day even more memorable.
So to the issue “Wedding in Tuscany” we answer with the best locations in Mugello!
It comes as no surprise that so many people seek to spend the most important days of their lives in a place as tranquil at Tuscany. Here in Mugello, at Villa Campestri Olive Oil Resort, we have had the pleasure to be the setting of several memorable weddings, all with their own unique style.
Since everything ‘Tuscan’ embodies a rustic, elegant and timeless style, we have a few ideas on how you can make your wedding into a simple country affair. The bonus is that many of the ideas can be cost-savers and pack a visual punch. Sticking to neutral colors and playing on textures make weddings embrace country-sheek.
One of the most important elements in Tuscany is nature and seasonable products. For a rustic, country theme you can use many natural elements as your wedding decorations, such as lemons, rosemary, floating candles, for a simple and elegant feel. Plus they cost a lot less than flowers. Olives branches make for a lovely table setting and have a pretty neat historical meaning as well.
What could possibly be more Italian than gelato. One trend we have been spotting in weddings recently is of a bespoke, small wheelable gelato cart that would certainly be a hit at any wedding. Stick to simple flavors like pistachio or crema and enjoy la dolce vita! You can always commission your local favorite geleteria in town and see if they offer a service like this.
For a truly unique wedding gift for your guests, what about a small bottle of extra-virgin olive oil from Tuscany? At weddings in our resort, we always provide this charming items for guests. Not only is it useful, olive oil is as important to the Tuscan region as anything else, literally the ‘life of the land.’ Or if you prefer something like wine as a gift, personalize the label with the date of your wedding.
Wine isn’t just for drinking, it also comes in handy as a pretty table setting for your guests. We have seen so many interesting wine elements in weddings lately. From using bottles to number tables or using glasses made from the base of the bottles. Another interesting idea is to use corks as place setters for your guests.
Italy is a land of the perfect before dinner drinks and adding a local cocktail is the perfect way to add a bit of Tuscany to the mix. We suggest the Florentine ‘negroni’, made of one part gin, one part vermouth rosso, and one part Campari, garnished with orange peel. This is the quintessential ‘apertif’ that many of your guests will be very impressed with. Otherwise you can definitely incorporate non-Tuscan but Italian cocktails such as the peach bellini or Venetian spritz.
Over the years, the trends for weddings change and therefore we thought it was interesting to draw up a list of tips and ideas for your wedding in Tuscany:
Raw materials such as jute bags, twine and large white candles for country-chic, country-style weddings and sober elegance are in fashion. The cranberry red color has become popular in recent years. Other colors that are in fashion this year are sage green, light pink and navy blue.
Every bride or groom usually has an idea of what they like well before their wedding. Everyone’s tastes are different but in the last years we have seen a return of simple lace, beautifully accenting a clean, almost slightly conservative gown.
Without a doubt, gold always remains a classy element to any wedding, it’s about ‘how it’s done’ and what we’ve seen lately, is a more soft gold – in the form of chandeliers, stripes in cake and as table accents. Romantic is a popular wedding theme with large candlesticks and a huge floral element. ‘Great Gatsby’ seems to be quite the inspiration for those looking for a more vintage vibe.
