Here at Distinctive Italy Weddings, you could say that we’ve seen (and done) it all, but one type of wedding that our agency has become specialized in is planning luxury Indian weddings in Italy, and let us just say that we thoroughly enjoy planning them!
In the last few years, we have seen a growing demand for Hindu wedding ceremonies and receptions in Italy.
With our many years of experience, we have become experts at creating spectacular and lavish Indian weddings. We have a long list of contacts throughout all regions that specialize in ceremonies, décor, food and entertainment for all types of traditional Indian weddings in Italy.
We always strive to incorporate and juxtapose Italy’s natural beauty, art, architecture and culture with our extravagant Indian weddings.
Below are some tips on location, menu and décor that we’ve come up with on how to organize an Indian wedding in Italy.
Let’s just say we wouldn’t use the words ‘intimate’ or ‘low-key’ to describe the Indian weddings that we have organized, but instead use ‘spectacular’, ‘grand’ and ‘over-the-top’! Indian weddings are usually large affairs with many guests and last 2 days
Many of the weddings we’ve done had a large number of guests and many lasted 3 days with multiple events including Mehndi, Sangeet, a traditional Hindu ceremony and a white "European" wedding!
Because of these festive traditions, we suggest that the best region for a large wedding is Tuscany due to the variety of option, and large number capacity.
Tuscany is filled with large and spacious indoor and outdoor wedding locations. From vineyard style ranches to hilltop castles and rustic-chic villas, there is no shortage of space and staff who are fully equipped to host a lavish Indian wedding in Italy.
Depending on the region, the ideal months to celebrate an Indian wedding in Italy are May to October.

We know that the key to Indian wedding décor is color, sparkle and attention to detail detail detail!
Distinctive Italy Weddings works with the best florists and decorators to ensure that we use the brightest reds, golds and jewel tones with the freshest florals.
We find that the rustic and Mediterranean Italian venues compliment the traditional Indian style’s bright décor.
Sometimes couples opt for a mix of Italian accents and an Indian color palette, while others prefer to have one event in a traditional Indian style and the other infusing Italian and local elements.
We have experience in creating everything from the table setting, to the ceremony aisle, to the seating chart, using just the right palettes, textures and designs.
We make sure to pay serious attention when designing Mandaps by making sure it takes full advantage of the breathtaking landscapes that Italy offers.
We provide exclusive services for the ceremony, including Hindu priests and various symbolic, civil or religious options.
Every ceremony detail is attended to from the sacred fire to an English speaking priest!
Italy is a country known for its cuisine, so of course we have countless catering contacts should couples want a typical and local menu. However, many couples request the flavorful, traditional dishes from India. When we understand which type of menu the couple desires, we advise accordingly. Usually, if they want a traditional Indian menu, we highly recommend having the wedding in Lake Como, Tuscany or the Veneto area, which are the best regions for Indian food. Areas such as the Amalfi Coast or Puglia are more specialized in local Italian cuisine.
We have worked with mixed cuisine and fusion menus and also traditional delicacies – nothing is off the table for us.
Indian bridal beauty is of paramount importance for an Indian wedding in Italy - we offer outstanding henna artists, makeup artists and hairdressers.
Knowing all the ins and outs is crucial when creating extraordinary and super luxe weddings like these. From organizing exclusive henna parties the night before the wedding, to ending the night off in fireworks, Distinctive Italy Weddings has extensive experience in designing the most glamorous Indian weddings in Italy.
