Wedding in Italy

Jump to last reply

Hi All, thanks for reading and for any advice offered - it is much appreciated. We are hoping to get married in summer 2015 in Italy but I am overwhelmed with the options and cost. We are flying from Ireland and want find somewhere within an hour of an airport and will have 60 guests approx .

We are considering somewhere near Pisa such as Lucca or anywhere mid way to Florence. (To allow for a day trip) We are also considering Bari or Palermo in Sicily due to regular cheap flights as we want to make it as easy as possible on our guests to reach the venue.
We are also looking for a venue within walking distance of a town or village so guests have some dinner options and can do their own thing on some days.

We are open to a hotel or villa but would like an outdoor pool and to have the wedding meal outside. We would like the venue to have a bar and restaurant so we do not have to cater every day as guests may stay from 3 days to a week.
I am finding that many venues in Tuscany are more remote and so it may involve renting a car which is cost we do not want to add for our guests. Perhaps we stay in one venue then travel to one of these villas!?
Any help regarding a laid back wedding that won't cost the earth is much needed and appreciated,
Thanks
Donna
