TOP REASONS TO PLAN YOUR DESTINATION WEDDING IN VENICE ITALY

Travel and a celebration of unity..


UN RÊVE


Up until my wedding last year, I truly had no idea how sentimental and profound one event could be.

As an American makeup artist and hairstylist based in Europe, destination weddings are a large facet of my business. By far one of my top locations to provide luxury beauty services for brides is none other than Venice!


It may seem to some that it would be difficult to plan a wedding in a far off place, but today many wedding planners as well as venues, specialise specifically in destination weddings.




WHY CHOOSE VENICE?

This idyllic paradise offers a backdrop to the most picturesque scenery in the world.


It is easily accessible by boat from the airport.


Venice is a floating city with no streets or cars but only canals, so that the only available means of transport are boats or gondolas.


The weather is cool in the winter and very warm in the summer.


And….


It is iconically romantic.



There are splendid churches, grand palaces converted into hotels, pretty villas, exotic gardens, or exquisite terraces providing incredible views over the Venetian Lagoon.


But if you really want to make your exchange of vows extraordinary and special, get married on the terrace of the Gritti palace



It is simply the most gandiose view on the island.


Known not only for the view, but you can stay at the hotel with or in close proximity to your guests.


A planner can help in taking care of all of the fine details so, you and your lover can walk along the historical streets or discover the canals on a gondola.

You can explore ancient buildings and find many hidden gems in this historic city.


Must See’s


St. Mark’s Square and San Marco Basin

The two spaces together form the social, religious and political centre of Venice and are commonly considered together.



The Ancient Palace for a traditional Venetian look or admire the façade adorned with sculptures, the 14th-century arch-shaped windows and arcades on the ground floor.


There are terraces overlooking the Grand Canal, with oversized windows and endless lit up salons decorated with precious tapestries and classical paintings.




Highlights:

  • The Gran Canal, Rialto Bridge and San Marco square - timeless beauty!

  • The cichetti bars of Venice - Venice’s version of tapas bars.

  • Meandering through the lesser known parts of Venice - Castello and Cannareggio.

  • The unquestionable charm of the isles of Murano and Burano.



If you are dreaming of a destination wedding in Venice, just know that it will be so much more than a glorified vacation.


It's an opportunity to share your love with the people you choose in a magical place.


A gift you give yourselves as well as anyone else who has the great honor of sharing this experience with you.


Best wishes,


Kassaundra
