A snow wedding in Italy!

A snow wedding in Italy

Summer is not the only time to get married in Italy!  Snow, winter weddings in Italy are becoming more and more popular, particularly in the breathtaking Dolomite mountains in the Italian Alps

It is no wonder that the Dolomites have been named world patrimony by UNESCO.  The scenery is other-worldly, and totally romantic with majestic cliffs and charming alpine villages.

A winter wedding in Italy will allow you to experience a very different atmosphere and include some unique services that are only possible during this time of year.  Imagine arriving at your ceremony in a horse drawn sleigh or your guests arriving at the wedding reception via snow mobile!  Expect to have the time of your lives surrounded by the most amazing scenery.

As with any Italian wedding reception the FOOD is paramount...and this region is very proud of its cuisine which reflects the bounty of its surroundings.

And no Italian wedding reception is complete without an abundant dessert buffet.  The Dolomites are famous for their pastries and sweets!

The most traditional winter wedding transportation is a horse drawn sleigh - as romantic as it could possibly be!
