For those who love winter and mountain weddings, the Italian Alps in the north of Italy represent one of the grandest backdrops for a wedding. At any time of year, this breathtaking scenery with typical stone and wooden lodgings, offers an infinite number of possibilities, both traditional and contemporary, for your wedding in the mountains.
The peaks have a different appeal and charm in every season: in the spring, the meadows are filled with flowers and the summits still covered with snow; in the summer, the skies are clear and nature is at the climax of its splendour; in autumn, the foliage creates a spectacular backdrop and the warmth of the fire is welcomed; and finally, winter is the time for the fairytale wedding with a modern Snow Queen.
Ideas for a wedding in the mountains
With a little care in organising the event, your guests will be blown away by your choice of location, and perhaps might take advantage of the occasion to stay overnight and spend the weekend in the mountains. Those who decide to celebrate their wedding in the mountains usually request my Full Wedding Planning service, where I take care of all of the organisational aspects of a wedding in the outdoors: from choosing the ceremony venue to the decorations, the bus transfer service or off-road vehicle to reach the mountain refuge, and hotel bookings for the guests and the happy couple.
We will create a tailor-made event for those who love the mountains, the warm glow of a roaring fire, warm spicy tea infusions and the smell of the undergrowth.
Venues for a winter wedding in Italy
The number of charming venues is infinite, and I am on hand to provide you with a shortlist of options in the Dolomites, which offer endless possibilities both when it comes to mountain refuges for the summer and hotels in the valleys for the winter, and in the Julian Alps, in untouched and little-known villages, as well as in those that are more famous.
In terms of the venue, here are some of the most famous ones: the Scoiattoli refuge in Cortina d’Ampezzo, with an outdoor barrel tub heated by a wood-burning stove at 2,225 metres; the Pomedes refuge, located in the Tofane mountain range; or the farmstead Malga Peziè de Parù and Fraina lodge.
Who is this style of wedding for?
A wedding in the mountains is the ideal choice for couples who love the mountains with their boundless surrounding scenery in all seasons, and for those who love life out in the open air and want their guests to be a part of nature’s most spectacular show.GET IN TOUCH
