I thought it was appropriate to do a little post on Italy seen as though the wedding is taking place there next year. There are so many inspiring choices of weddings in Italy from rolling countryside, beach or lakeside affairs or ultra chic city ceremonies. A particular favourite style of mine is a rustic, romantic and rural wedding that chooses a colour scheme similar to that of the countryside, generally in a palette of green and white. I particularly love the little Italian touches in these weddings such as the mini bottles of Limoncello, a traditional Italian lemon liqueur with a personalised message from the bride and groom or the bottles of olive oil especially if chosen from a local olive oil factory. The bride is yet to settle on a style but either way with a setting as breathtaking and romantic as Italy you could simply light up the venue with fairy lights and set the tables with clean white linens and a few simple flowers and it would still be breathtaking.
