Rome Weddings & Inspiration: Divine Old World Romance
Ah, Rome – the Eternal City. It truly does seem to live on forever as one of the most romantic places, for all its Old World treasures and charm. Why not use the beautiful backdrop of Rome for your destination wedding or inspiration?
The new Woody Allen film, “To Rome With Love,” will likely inspire more wedding couples looking to Rome and Italy for wedding inspiration this year. We’ve put together some great ideas for your Rome destination wedding or to bring the spirit of Rome into your ceremony and reception closer to home.
Rome and her surrounding countryside have some of the most incredibly beautiful churches, villas, hotels and gardens perfect for destination wedding ceremonies. You can get as grand or as intimate as you please with your international wedding planner’s guidance.
Have your Italy destination wedding photos taken by Luminaire Foto, capturing the Italian setting splendor like the church wedding above. Enjoy Villa Grazioli, which sits on a beautiful hill overlooking Rome and hosts many weddings in their Pannini Gallery. Savor the grandeur of Il Palazzetto Hotel in the heart of Rome for incredible views and accommodations. Wear a pretty bridal flower crown for your ceremony at Ninfa Gardens in Lazio (about 40 miles SE of Rome) for a romantic outdoor wedding in the picturesque setting shown here from Life in Italy.
Even if you’re unable to have your Italy wedding ceremony in a luxurious Roman setting, your wedding photos and wedding video can still have the stunning Old World backdrops of Rome monuments and architecture. These Rome wedding photos from Roberto Lavini of Wedding Photo Italy, Weddings in Italy by Regency, Cinderella Images and Alessandro Zingone of Italian Wedding Photojournalist are some of our favorites.
Can’t get to Rome for your nuptials but still want a Rome wedding theme? There are many fun and Italy-inspired ways to celebrate your wedding locally, too. Consider a Rome-inspired wedding ceremony, with flower-topped columns linked with tulle like these from Blossom’s Wedding Flowers. Add a fun Roman Cityscape wedding cake from Whipped Bakeshop for Italy-inspired wedding reception treats. Or how about beautiful tiers of savory Italian cheeses in a non-traditional cheese wedding cake, too?
The custom Rome travel posters from CustomThings on Etsy make wonderful keepsakes for the wedding couple and their families, with names and dates added at your request. Or spell out your Italian-inspired love with a sweet little burlap “Amore” banner from Mirtillo Shop on Etsy.
