Eco-sustainable weddings in Italy have only been on the radar for a few years and there are a number of ways you can interpret this style.
After an initial meeting to get to know each other and some careful organisation of the details, we will be able to create an event that communicates your tastes and values.
Indeed, couples who feel an eco-sustainable wedding is what best represents them are able to find their own in this style of wedding, something that represents their lifestyle and respect for the environment, going beyond standard “green” choices.
Ideas for an eco-chic wedding
When it comes to eco-sustainability, the go-to for any wedding planner is Emily Anderson, a design expert and party organiser for the famous Martha Stewart, author of “Eco-Chic Weddings: Simple Tips to Plan an Environmentally Friendly, Socially Responsible, Affordable, and Stylish Celebration”.
Through Chapeau, I have personally reworked various ideas from this book with a view to taking advantage of local production and promoting the specific character of our local area, giving the couple and their guests some positive food for thought. The services I can offer include assistance in taking care of the finishing touches; finding organic suppliers in the local area, as well as Slow Food strongholds in the region; putting together unique menus; finding a meaningful and original wedding favour; organising eco-themed activities or entertainment; and creating floral decorations without using cut flowers, for example making use of recycled paper or vegetables.
Venues for an environmentally sustainable wedding in Italy
The province of Pordenone and the Friuli region offer numerous venues that are suited to eco-friendly weddings: from a traditional agriturismo, to country houses, fields, natural parks and reserves. Among the venues that make the cut are the winery Cantine Pitars, the Vistorta estate, Villa Pera in Gaiarine, Villa Pera in Godega Sant’Urbano, and the enchanting Locanda La Candola, in the Prosecco hills.
Beyond the north-east of Italy the options are endless: Tuscany, Umbria, Salento, Oltrepò Pavese, the Reggiano Apennines, the Langhe… Each is unique for its colours, smells and flavours.
Who is this style of wedding for?
Eco-chic weddings are the ideal choice for nature-loving couples who care about environmental sustainability, healthy eating, veganism and vegetarianism, or simply using local products. They are for those who pay attention to the local area, are tied to where their roots, and want to share local gems, producers and places that deserve recognition with their guests.GET IN TOUCH
