Important Suggestions to plan Elegantly a Romantic Rustic Wedding in Italy
A romantic wedding is the beginning of a whole new era of love in a couple’s life. Love is nature’s gift. It has nothing artificial, rather it’s the most real and precious thing in the world.
And what’s better to celebrate this nature’s gift on the naturally beautiful island of Sicily?
Sean and Amelia dreamed of a romantic rustic wedding in Sicily. They wanted to celebrate the spectacular views of nature and the historic Sicilian beauty at the same time.
The beautiful part of planning a romantic wedding in Sicily is the couple can celebrate in different scenarios. That is why we did it in multiple venues.
The couple asked me to plan, design, and coordinate the wedding, so we had;
- The rehearsal dinner in the historic Ragusa Ibla, and
- The welcome party in the heart of the ancient monastery
- The Romantic Rustic wedding ceremony in a luxury villa with a heavenly garden
- And the brunch and after-party on a beautiful beach
They had exactly what they wanted for their big day and so much more.
The Interesting Idea behind the Locations
The locations for this wedding were taken from the scenes of a TV series ‘Detective Montalbano’ –a novel by the writer Andrea Camilleri. These locations were also used as the backdrop to Giuseppe Tornatore’s famous masterpiece ‘Man of the stars”.
Amelia and Sean agreed to tie the knot in the Province of Ragusa in Sicily. Undoubtedly, Sicily is amazingly beautiful and Ragusa provided us with the perfect location of their romantic rustic destination wedding.
The year-round Mediterranean climate makes this corner of Sicily a relaxing and romantic getaway. Additionally, our guests had enjoyed scrumptious Sicilian food and wine in the local vineyards nearby.
Pro tip: Deciding the location for your romantic rustic wedding in Italy totally depends on your priorities. It’s always better to get the help of a local destination wedding planner to analyze the vision of your dream wedding and provide the on-ground solutions in your budget.
Romantic Wedding in Italy – The Rustic Chic theme
Amelia and Sean’s Italian wedding was stylish and elegant. Every detail was precisely selected to complete the high-end design.
The love of bride and groom exuded in our rustic chic design. We organized some high-octane entertainment by adding piano music that played famous Italian movie numbers like La dolce vita and Ennio Morricone mixed with an Italian vintage band.
The Fairytale Wedding Ceremony
The highlight of course, was the wedding itself that took place in a luxury rustic villa that we exclusively used for the day, Amelia and Sean gave us the opportunity to plan a more bespoke, personal, and romantic wedding ceremony written for them in Italian, English, and Chinese by the wedding celebrant and officiant.
The ceremony told their love story. From the day Amelia and Sean met, they had not been apart for even a single day ever since. There were also included personal vows.
The ceremony was outdoor in lavish garden space with rustic arrangements. The seating was wooden rustic adorned with floral décor made with olive leaves, roses, and wildflowers.
The colors we used were green and white, with a touch of light shades of yellow, violet, blue, and orange.
To help the guests understand, the celebrants addressed the ceremony in English, Italian and Chinese languages. During the ceremony, background music had been played through a white piano and trombone.
All set to beautifully crafted, custom-made wedding décor –the villa was waiting to the big entry of the bride and groom. While you enter the wedding villa, you’d find professionally decorated spacious floor plan, lined with a wall of glass doors and embracing the essence of indoor-outdoor events.
The Stylish Table Setting for a romantic rustic wedding
The table décor adorned with the empire crystal chandeliers enhanced the elegance of our rustic chic wedding design. The added warm light-reflecting elements created a stylish appeal to the wedding décor.
Having a romantic wedding in Italy means getting a variety of choices for floral compositions with crystal candle stands and perfectly matching tableware. In this romantic wedding, we’ve styled blue vases, crystal glasses with under plates in lighter shades of blue.
Each plate was embellished with a white silk napkin and an orchid flower as our gorgeous bride Amelia is from Asian origin.
The colors we used in this vintage chic wedding décor were white, green, and light blue. Undoubtedly, the use of colors and effects help our floral and porcelain pieces look more pleasant and gorgeous.
- Cocktails: we presented a rustic cocktail setting with long wooden tables and live cooking.
- Photo booth: Rustic carriages lemon and olives décor
- Dinner: Indoor buffet dinner
- Music: An Italian vintage band and an American street band to keep the joyous ambiance.
- Wedding Cake and Sweets Buffet Setting: We nestled the rustic lemon wedding cake with yellow and green floral décor at an outdoor patio. Under an ancient olive tree, the wedding cake was set on a naked wooden table to complete the rustic feel.
- Cigar corner: Vintage style elegant setting of old Cuban cigars for the guests to enjoy the day.
The couple thoroughly enjoyed their beautifully crafted wedding day timeline. The ceremony, music, food, and décor, everything was all on-point and well-organized to create beautiful memories for the bride and groom. No doubt, the team Luxury Wedding Sicily had done a great job as our bride and groom Amelia and Sean really admired all the efforts.
