from intricate embroidery on the bride’s bodice reminiscent of snowflake patterns to the groom’s sharp festive suit, to the food and drinks laid out in a rustic décor with pine cones, silvery wreaths, and mistletoe leaves elegantly set.
How about you celebrate your marriage in a beautiful church in the Alps mountains or a town hall in a small village and then treat your guests to one of the Alpine restaurants that offer an amazing view of the Italian Alps? Cool wreaths, garlands, table runners, lot of candles, lanterns filled with ornaments and wood logs as candle holder stands to make your winter wedding even more special.
Or, you can choose the illusion of a transparent marquee to host your reception and give your guests the impression they are outside with frozen ice statues, ghost chairs, crystal chandeliers, and white frosty branches for a dramatic effect.
With snow as a backdrop to a gorgeous winter landscape and frost dusted over tree branches, nothing can be more romantic than arriving on a horse-drawn sleigh and you can continue on a ski holiday as your honeymoon.
Just Amore, your wedding planner in Italy, can capture the essence of the winter season and weave many themes and motifs on your special day. Colors of deep red, forest green, and gold perfectly reflect the magic of the merry season against a white backdrop of mountain peaks. We favor sophisticated romance for the snow queen with a bold palette of red roses with green centerpieces.
Brides can capture the crystalline beauty of the winter season with dramatic white and silver, white with golden hues or silver, grey and pale blue. For a romantic effect, few silver leaves, sequins, beads, fur branches and tendrils of delicate and graceful snowdrops transform the classic white into a romantic and glamorous wintry display for your wedding in Italy.
Turn to rich reds with a combination of some of the above to create an elegant and festive mood for your centerpieces.
We suggest a creative touch to your bridal bouquet with fresh flowers, crystals, or even feathers. To reflect the snowy season, silver leaves and white-tipped pine cones add to that frosty effect. Winter flowers can also include festive holiday red flowers such as the amaryllis blossoms or red roses for a stunning bridal bouquet.
How about you serve food at your reception that withstand the cold weather and provide your guests with a vivid insight into the northern Italy’s culture and tradition? Mini pizzas, bruschettas, polenta and focaccia for appetizers. Soups like Tortellini in brodo or Ribollita as starters. Melanzane alla parmigiana, Ossobucco, Gnocchi with wild boar sauce are top comfort foods for the coldest month in the Italian mountains.
Panettone and Pandoro, the Italian Christmas cakes that will remind you of the festive season, can be served next to a hot cocoa station. A decadent crème brûlée served with espresso coffe and an all white “Italian Confetti” sweet table will complete your menu. A must have is the favorite Italian winter drink, served in Italy’s ski resorts, known as Bombardino -Literaly “the bomb”-. Comprised of half eggnog and half brandy, it is served hot with whipped cream and a pinch of cinnamon.
Let’s not forget the wedding cake! Frosted, icing reminiscent of icicles, ice-blue fondant, ruffles, silver beads, snowflakes…Or for a rustic wedding, you can adorn your naked cake with alpine greenery, tiny pine cones, and delicious berries. For a lasting winter touch, this cake can be dusted with crystalized sugar to create a snowy effect.
