A year of weddings in Tuscany: all the trends for 2024

According to bridal experts, even in 2024 destination weddings will continue to be highly sought after. This is great news for Tuscany, which will host the special day of many traveling couples.

But while the charm of Tuscan locations never goes out of style, the same cannot be said for many other aspects of the wedding. Over the course of the year, several new trends will emerge, making the 2024 wedding season unmistakable.

Here, then, are some suggestions to ensure that your wedding in the Valdichiana Senese area, in the south of Tuscany, is absolutely up to date.

  1. Extravagant locations
    The mood of weddings in 2024 will be totally nonconformist. Brides and grooms will say goodbye to established traditions to add a personal touch to the celebration of their union. In Valdichiana Senese, this will be the opportunity to discover original locations, away from the usual Tuscan farmhouses: you can say “yes” immersed in nature, inside evocative museum spaces or theaters. The unique location that you can find only here? The “La Città Sotterranea” Civic Museum in Chiusi: the Etruscan-origin tunnels that develop under the historic center, populated by precious inscriptions, will make the ceremony mystical and timeless.
  2. Long weddings
    Increasingly, the wedding affair will not be confined to just one day. In 2024, a series of side events will be added to the actual ceremony, designed to share more time with family and friends. Valdichiana Senese, with its many faces, becomes the ideal destination to engage guests in many fun and rejuvenating experiences. Dinners in the vineyard, bike rides, and thermal baths are just some of the activities that the territory offers; without a doubt, you will be able to find the right proposal for every guest.
  3. Garden-style decorations
    Flowers and plants will not only compose the bride’s bouquet but will be at the center of the entire event, from invitations to banquet decorations. It will be the garden style that dominates, that is, the flower design trend that wants to reproduce disorganized nature. Valdichiana Senese, with its lush nature, provides endless inspirations for creating a green-spirit wedding. Depending on whether you prefer warm or cool tones, autumn, spring, and summer are poised to become the perfect seasons for your wedding in Valdichiana Senese.
  4. Personalized gifts for guests
    Weddings are evolving to become unique and unforgettable experiences, as much for the spouses as for their guests. And what better way to remind all attendees of the occasion than to give an exclusive memento of your wedding? A bottle of Vino Nobile di Montepulciano accompanied by a personalized label, or a handmade item from a local artisan workshop are two zero-kilometer ideas to immortalize your Tuscan “yes” in the memory of relatives and friends.

Vineyard wedding: 5 reasons to make this choice

For a destination wedding in Tuscany, the vineyard is the location of excellence.

Wine is certainly one of the treasures that makes Tuscany famous throughout the world. And there are so many suggestions that this excellent product comes with: there are those who travel to Tuscany to admire the rows of vines, which create unique landscapes, there are those who, as true connoisseurs, can’t wait to dive head first in unique tasting experiences. But there are also those who come to the vineyards of Tuscany to celebrate their special day. Why make this choice for your wedding? Here are just a few reasons:

  1. A super original venue
    If you love to surprise, an essential element of your wedding must be the location, unconventional and impressive. Well, the vineyards of Tuscany certainly respond to these characteristics! The rows of vines are the ideal setting for the actual wedding ceremony, helping to create a collected and intimate moment under the “protection” of the plants surrounding the bride and groom. And for the reception, there is space for a very long table that can welcome and keep friends and relatives together.
  2. Cozy and casual atmosphere
    A vineyard wedding, with the correct set-up, can become chic and elegant. But the atmosphere is absolutely cozy and casual. Being in close contact with nature helps make the big day authentic and relaxed. In short, the vineyard is the right location if what you imagine when thinking about the celebration of your union is a real party.
  3. The ideal setting from spring fo fall
    Are you still undecided about the wedding date? In the meantime, you can start selecting the location! From April to late September, the vineyards are ready to welcome newlyweds and guests. Of course, depending on the time of year, it will be necessary to adjust the start time of the event. While in the height of summer a wedding at sunset will be preferable, in spring and fall the party can last throughout the day… But pay attention to the harvest season! In September, the opinion of the winemakers will be decisive in establishing the day and time of the wedding.
  4. Chic and unconventional set-ups
    A vineyard wedding allows you to fully show off your creativity. There are only a few “rules” to respect and there are many ways to have fun! As for colours, it’s usually best to stick to nuances that recall nature, from green, to brown, to burgundy, without forgetting all the shades of white. As for the rest of the set-ups, the only limit is your imagination. You can use recycled objects and materials, take inspiration from country chic or boho, or opt for a more shabby look: what is important is that the result fully represents you.
  5. Quality wines
