Italy is a breath-taking destination for a wedding abroad and, well, there are many good reasons to it: stunning and diverse views and venues, breezy and sunny weather and tasty Mediterranean food, to start with.
But these, to be fair, are just some of the perks that will help you choose Italy as your
From the azure Mediterranean Sea to the glistening lakes in the North, and from when the sun rises over the centenary olive groves in Apulia to when it warmly sets on Tuscany’s rolling hills, Italy is always and in every single bit the most romantic and mesmerizing place where to say “I do”. What is more, is that Italy is nothing short of incredible venues as well: whether you want a wedding in a countryside barn in Friuli-Venezia Giulia, on a clifftop hotel in Ravello or in a luxurious historical villa, Italy does not disappoint. Like, ever.
Food in Italy is The Bomb™. Our cuisine offers an abundance of taste and flavour and heavily relies on hearty and simple quality ingredients that vary by region and season. Pasta and focaccia, polenta and sauce, cheese and cured meats, but also creamy risottos and delicate gnocchi, juicy beef cuts and freshly caught fish, zesty sorbets and fine wines and an abundance of colourful and fragrant fruits and vegetables are just waiting for you to enjoy them until the very last bite.
Rooted in a fascinating mélange of Mediterranean and central European cultures, Italian age-old hospitality is a blend of an open, cosmopolitan attitude with a cosier and traditional charm.
It is not unusual for venues and service providers to welcome wedding couples and their guests with elegance and style while being as effortless and as generous as they would be if they were interacting with their own circle of friends – or even families: indeed, Italians would do anything to make you feel both comfortable and special during your Big Day!
Every region of Italy has different traditions that can enrich your destination wedding with history, art, and culture: without traveling too far, you and your guests will be able to enjoy mesmerizing natural wonders, buzzing cities, remote villages and historical buildings, monuments and sites. The choice is so wide that picking Italy as both your wedding and honeymoon destination not only makes so much sense, but will also feel like travelling to an all new – but always welcoming and beautiful – country each stop of the way.
“Organise your wedding in Italy”, they say.
“Trust Italian Wedding planners”, they say.
And you know what? They are right!
A destination wedding coordinated by Italians in their very own land is a credit to the inimitable quality, elegance and design of our Belpaese. When you decide to give us the responsibility to tell your story during the most important day of your life, we are ready to bring our style and taste in the game and translate it into something that will wow your guest while genuinely reflecting your personality and wishes.
That’s it. Just love, amore. Italians are incredibly romantic, passionate and emotional, and Italy is, by definition, one of the most romantic and magical destinations in Europe. A very big part of what makes Italy so romantic is the fact that Italy has romance in its DNA: think back to Romeo and Juliet, La Dolce Vita and Frank Sinatra. And again: the food, the climate, the views, the people, and literally anything else that has even just a 0,1% of Italian in it.
What they say
"Wedding in Venice..... Employing Giada Marcuzzi Weddings was the best decision we made. It was always going to be tricky to organise a wedding in Venice from the UK but once Giada was on board things got a lot easier. Giada’s organising, creativity and eye for detail are impeccable. Giada had sourced and supplied an amazing team for the day including the photographer, DJ, stylists etc. The wedding day itself was amazing with Giada’s team getting us from venue to venue around Venice with such ease. Personally Giada is a very friendly, approachable and lovely lady and we got on extremely well, which was so important when organising a wedding. So if you are getting married in Italy I would not hesitate in recommending Giada… she is a star." — Ed Taylor
"Amazing Wedding Planners. Giada, Anna and the team delivered the most incredible wedding for my husband John and I. We live in London and they made having a foreign wedding so much easier for us. Every supplier they found was of top quality and perfect for what we were looking for. Once found, they made sure we were able to communicate directly with the suppliers who were there all day, so we could really let them know the mood we were going for. If any supplier was above our budget they worked with us to negotiate whenever we asked. The team work tirelessly to make sure everything is perfectly in place for the wedding, especially in the lead up a few weeks prior and around the wedding itself. We had 170 people at a 3 day wedding and each event they did whatever they could to make it run as smoothly as possible. Even if we wanted a last minute change, they made it happen. Not only are they extremely professional, but they are absolutely lovely people and we had a lot of fun whenever we were with them :). I would 100% recommend them as wedding planners." — Namita
"Giada and her team made everything beyond beautiful... Take her advice, she has loads of experience and will make sure everything goes smoothly. She also understands the timelines a lot more and most of the things for the wedding get finalised last minute which is daunting enough for the bride and groom... but the sooner you understand this the better... She will do an amazing job :)" — Maeve
"Success is no accident. It is hard work, perseverance, learning, studying, sacrifice and most of all, love of what you are doing or learning to do." — Pele
"Giada and her team worked extremely hard for 9 months to execute the perfect wedding for us. They were exceptional and always kind and patient to each and every question. The day was perfect and can only be described as seamless due to their hard work. No bride is easy and I am not an exception. I would highly recommend using Giada Marcuzzi weddings for a wedding or even... party!" — Connie
"I have contacted Giada just three weeks before the wedding: thought I had everything under control but, MAN, I could not have been more wrong! Giada immediately made a detailed estimate of my budget and behaved as one of the best supplier at my wedding: I assure you that whatever I would have asked her, she had always the right answer. In addition to that, she has always suggested smart solutions for all my problems and doubts, plus answered quickly, even in the black of night. Always on time for all our meetings, she did not miss our last and most important one: the wedding. During my Big Day, she and her assistants have been careful and always available for helping me: I was completely relying on her, I have trusted her and I have been repaid in so many ways!" — Cristina
"It was not my intention to hire a wedding planner for my Big Day. However, I had to change my mind: GMW team was perfectly tailored on our dreams and budget. The team was patient and led us effortlessly through out all the planning before and during the day of our wedding. Planning everything all by yourselves will drive you crazy: if you want to be original, stay in the budget and choose the best for yourselves, I highly recommend Giada." — Chiara
"Giada puts her heart into her projects: that makes a concrete and discrete difference in comparison with her colleagues. It is not enough to have a good CV or on point budgeting- and planning-skills, when your job is all about the understanding of others. You need to have something more, something that Giada and her fabulous team gladly have: indeed, they create magic and realize all your inner dreams with skills and passion. In particular, Giada is professional, dedicated, calm and focused: she is the perfect balance between organizing skills and emotions, since she is the one who believes in your wedding dreams more than anyone else. I have casually met her while I was working and she, ironically, was a client. I felt blue because I was losing my job, and she literally brightened up my day. Since then, I have relied on her not only as the planner for my wedding, but also as a good friend. Thanks, Giada." — Dyandra "Giada has been our professional guide for every single detail of our wedding. Always available (even at midnight!), quick and open to discussion, she kept her word and respected our plans and budget. In addition to all of these incredible qualities she has, our guests had only positive feedbacks for her! Thanks Giada!" — Lara
