So you’ve chosen to get married in Italy (which is a great decision, by the way), and you’ve selected the venue of your dreams, invited your guests and maybe even booked your flights. But with the big first steps completed, now’s the time to think about those extra touches that will make your destination wedding unique. When getting married abroad, couples often lack those personal and quirky additions to the event that are so common in weddings closer to home. But it’s just as easy to add character, personality, and originality abroad as it is at home, simply do your research for the best providers out there.
For this kind of research, Zankyou is always here to lend a helping hand. Our presence in 23 countries means we have an incredibly varied network of wedding vendors and services all over the world. And in Italy, a country we absolutely love, we have an infinite amount to recommend. But let’s simple it down to 5 providers we think will help jazz up your beautiful destination wedding:

Alternatively Confetti Snob Lion and Snob Galak are perfect for those wanting to rediscover the tastes of childhood.
Talking of delicious delights, one thing to really think about when planning your wedding in Italy is the catering.
