... turning dreams into reality since 1997

Distinctive Italy designs one of a kind, exclusive “couture” events in specially selected venues throughout the country. We craft each event with detail and care to create the wedding of your dreams and will assist you in selecting the perfect venue from a romantic castle, elegant villa or rustic hamlet.


Experience is key for the successful outcome of any luxury wedding in Italy. DIW has a highly trained team of event designers that understands every aspect of wedding planning from handling complex paperwork requirements to assisting you in finding the perfect Italian wedding venue.

We have planned over two thousand weddings since 1997  when the idea of getting married in Italy was still a novelty.

We were the first to organize events in the yet to be discovered regions of Italy, forging key relationships with local officials and opening new Italian wedding locations like Lake Orta, Friuli Venezia Giulia and beautiful romantic towns such as Cortina D’Ampezzo in the Dolomites and romantic Verona.

Our desire is for you to discover the hidden jewels of our magnificent country.


  • All our weddings are planned by our own team, regardless of the city or region you choose to marry in.
  • Our venues have been personally screened and approved by us; and we have over 200 to choose from. We know our locations.
  • Our creative staff is experienced in assisting you in finding the perfect wedding location and selecting the best service providers to compliment your event.

“The wedding was a success because of the huge amount of planning that went in and the support of talented and professional vendors….Our Italian vendors, suggested and coordinated by DIW, exceeded our expectations through their professionalism, punctuality, quality of service/product and accommodation of our requests. We would recommend all of them to other couples getting married in Italy”. Pippa and Josh – Tuscany wedding

  • We have 2 culinary experts and one of our senior planners is also a professional chef on staff to assist with menu planning.
  • As event designers, we will create the most imaginative floral and decoration arrangements for a fantasy dream wedding. 

We chose Distinctive Italy Weddings based on your website and all the beautiful weddings posted there.  We had no real way of knowing how legitimate you were and whether or not everything would be delivered as promised.  We just closed our eyes, crossed our fingers and said "let's do this.” I am happy to report we were not disappointed.  Not only were we not disappointed, we were blown away!  Honestly, everything was perfect.  And I'm a perfectionist.  When we first started looking at your website, I thought that all the weddings were too beautiful -- almost staged.  I was prepared to be a bit disappointed with our final product -- setting not as nice as pictured, flowers not so great, people not as warm and friendly as advertised -- but in fact everything was absolutely, positively exactly as I'd hoped it would be. I can't thank you and your team enough.  From start to finish, everything was perfect!  Shawn and Thomas – Amalfi Coast

We truly love our job and make ourselves available to our couples promptly updating them on progress via email, phone or Skype. By the time your wedding day comes around, we hope you will have found a new friend in Italy!
