5 tips on how to pick the perfect wedding location for your wedding in Italy

According to our experience we think that you should keep in mind five most important tips that will help you choosing the wedding venue of your dreams.

– Hire a wedding planner and talk to her/him first;
– Write a list and count how many guests you will have;
– Think about the style you wish your ceremony will have;
– Timeline: picking up a wedding date
– Keep in mind your budget

First steps on taking the decision on where to get married in Umbria

First (and most important) of all: hire a wedding planner! A local wedding planner will help you with all the details, and will definitely guide you through the many overwhelming emotions affecting you! She / He will write down a list, from which wedding gown to select, to flowers, bridesmaids, list of guests. A local wedding planner will help you think about everything without missing the point, and most important of all will help you picking the right wedding location. Most important to do this is knowing how many guests will attend your wedding in Umbria. If you choose a venue that can’t hold all of your guests in the list, or more guests RSVP ‘yes’ than you can fit in the venue, you might have some problems. In our experience at My Umbrian Wedding we know that couples often underestimate how many people they will invite, so it’s better to get all the responses before choosing your venue, or at least choose one that can hold all of the people you invite!

Which style will have your wedding in Umbria

Third tip in our list, after counting the possible guests coming, is to think about the style you wish your ceremony will have.
Are you a romantic bride? Then go for a wedding in a castle: just like in a fairytale, you and your beloved will be so beautiful, in a historic setting, looking in each other’s eyes, vowing eternal love.
The wedding ceremony will be more informal? Then a farmhouse or a vineyard will be the perfect venue for saying “I do”. Spring or Summer will be the perfect seasons to organize your wedding in Umbria in these locations, so that you can also have an en plein air ceremony.
Are you dreaming about a lush ceremony, elegant and very formal? A villa will fullfill your wishes. A villa with a superb view to the amazing green landscape of Umbria.

Picking the right date for your wedding in Umbria

The first EVER question is: what comes first? Picking a wedding date or choosing a venue?
It mainly depends on what is more important to you: getting married during a particular time of year or getting the venue of your dreams. Our suggestion is: go into the venue search with two ranges of dates. But in our opinion, first comes the location. Because once you have the location, the date will follow basing on availability.
This also leads us to the fifth and last tip: keep in mind your budget! Knowing in advance the exact number of guests will also help you saving money, since you will not have to change the reservation a dozen times – or worst, change location due to a wrong program!

Last but not least…

Ok, we spoke about 5 useful tips. But our experience tells us that we ABSOLUTELY have to tell you two more things.
First: think of a back-up plan. We at My Umbrian Wedding can handle this for you, and we really suggest to have one.
Second: like with your wedding gown, you will immediately know when the location will be the right one. It’s a deep feeling. If you can’t help but imagine yourself there in your vision of your dream day, it’s likely right.
Your wedding in Umbria is nearer than you think!
