Getting married on Valentine’s Day: living your fairytale on the day of lovers

Wedding planning is one of the most important moments in a couple’s life. A phase of sharing, ideas and creativity in which one has to make important decisions to best represent one’s experience and dreams. First and foremost, the choice of time and day.
So, if you have decided to crown your dream of love, you are a romantic couple, but you are still undecided on the date, fear not, we at Wedding in Valdichiana are here for you, and we will give you 4 good reasons why getting married on February 14th could be a really great idea!

Curious to know more? Read below!

1) ROMANTICISM: 14 February is a symbolic date because it is Saint Valentine’s Day, known as the patron saint of lovers, so it’s the day on which, more than any other, Love is celebrated. By marrying on this day, therefore, you would not only give greater significance to your union, but you would spend the most romantic day of the year, crowning your dream.

2) THEME: if you are a true romantic and love themed weddings, you can’t help but choose Valentine’s Day as the date for your wedding. You can adapt your menu with love-themed food and beverages, and the same goes for the tableau mariage, but without overdoing it. For example, you could use the color red, roses and hearts sparingly and with refinement, in the details of the set-up. It will be enough to limit these details to sugared almonds, invitations and balloons, for a romantic and non-trivial wedding reception.

3) DRESS CODE: if you dream of a different colour and an extravagant style for your wedding dress, what better “excuse” than getting married on Valentine’s Day to wear it? Women might opt for a super elegant red sheath dress, while men for a more eclectic and original outfit. The same goes for the guests, giving them carte blanche on the dress code for the big day!

4) EXPERIENCES: the trend for 2023 mainly concerns extended celebrations, i.e. the organization of long weekends or even weeks, in specific destinations… and Tuscany is in the top places in the ranking of favourite destinations! So, it goes without saying that a magical time to plan them, especially in this Region, is Februrary and the close to Valentine’s Day!

Winery wedding: an unusual location for a joy-filled ceremony

Are you a lover of life’s pleasures and out-of-the-ordinary experiences? Are you looking for an original location for your wedding day? Well then, we at Wedding in Valdichiana can’t help but propose to you a winery in our territory, the Valdichiana Senese, a land rich in precious vineyards and evocative
wineries! Here are 5 good reasons why you should choose it…

  1. LOVE AND WINE: if one of the passions that most unites your couple is that for wine, one of the many wineries in Valdichiana could be the ideal place to spend the most romantic and important day of your life. By doing so, you will unite your love with your passion for wine, saying your fateful
    yes and celebrating your union in the perfect setting of a beautiful Tuscan winery!
  2. SENSORY EXPERIENCE: choosing a winery as the location of your wedding also means living authentic experiences, thanks to the organization of real sensory tours: you will be able to taste a good glass of wine, smell its fragrance and learn its characteristics. You will also be able to wake up in the morning with a breakfast in the vineyard, have a snack with the winemaker and a cutting board of typical Valdichiana products and finally end the day with a Tuscan dinner in the vineyard.
  3. AUTHENTIC AND EVOCATIVE LOCATION: Tuscan wineries, in addition to being home to some of the most famous wine labels in the world, are truly original and striking places to hold your wedding party. The wineries will envelop the bride and groom and their guests in the special scents of must and wood from the barrels. The dimmed lights (because wine likes to rest in the twilight) will make the atmosphere even more evocative. Guests will be fascinated by the sommeliers’ stories and the carefully designed menu paired with the wines, which will turn the meal into a true experience.
  4. VARIETY OF STYLES: Tuscany has a large number and variety of wineries. There are older wine cellars with a stone architectural structure reminiscent of the time in which it was built, ideal for those with a more traditional taste, or the more recent ones, for the newlyweds who love modernity. Arrangements can be truly endless and, as a rule, will favor informality, such as vine branches and candles made from the bottoms of glass bottles.
  5. VERSATILITY OF SEASONS: the wine cellar is undoubtedly one of the most versatile wedding, adaptable to every season. It will certainly be perfect in fall and winter, as these periods coincide with the grape harvest and wine bottling, so it offers the chance to experience and breathe in the Tuscan wine traditions.

At this point all that remains is for you to choose from our wedding proposals, designed to give you the wedding of your dreams. Get inspired… And if you don’t find what you are looking for, we can customize our offers according to your wishes. Contact us!

The emotion of getting married in a garden of Valdichiana Senese

Getting married in a Garden: is there a more romantic location?Let’s find out together!

If you’re thinking about a wedding ceremony en plein air , whether only for the reception or also for the civil ceremony, the ideal location for you is certainly one of the marvellous gardens or parks of the Valdichiana Senese, in Tuscany. Especially in Valdichiana, in fact, there are so many of them!

Below you will find some useful hints to clarify your ideas.

1. Beauty and Nature
For couples imagining spending their big day outdoors, there is no more perfect and precious choice than a garden or park in Tuscany, surrounded by the sounds of animals, the colours of the countryside and the scents of flowers. The ‘wow’ effect is assured!

2. Romance and intimacy
Tuscan gardens or parks, from the simplest to those characterised by a more complex structure, have always been places of pure hedonism, to be shared with the person you love and, in the case of a wedding, with all your loved ones, isolated from the world, in absolute quiet. For this reason, if you are looking for an intimate and evocative location, the garden will be the perfect setting for your special day.

3. Simplicity and history
Tuscany is home to influential and historic families and famous artists, who have given our splendid region unique and unrepeatable places, rich in history and charm, that have become symbols of this territory: gardens are among these. Many gardens, in fact, originated as ornaments of the palaces, villas or castles of noble families, in which, through their architecture, the magnificence of the family to which
they belonged shone through. But there are many other gardens with simpler lines that tend to enhance nature as it is without resorting to human labour. Whether you have in mind a more elaborate location, or a simpler one, without sacrificing nature, the Gardens will provide the backdrop for an unforgettable ceremony!

4. The good season en plen air
If you dream of getting married in spring or summer, and you love the idea of doing it in the open air, you cannot but consider the Tuscan Garden as a wedding location. You will enjoy the climate, the long days and the beautiful sunsets.

5. Unique and unforgettable emotions
Spending an entire day, especially the wedding day, amidst the beauty of nature in a Tuscan garden will be like experiencing forgotten emotions and reliving that childlike carefreeness made up of simple gestures and spontaneous smiles. With the help of good weather you can organise wedding receptions, perhaps even in the evening to make the atmosphere more romantic and unforgettable!

However it goes, it will be beautiful!

Choosing the perfect cadeau

Does planning the wedding favours for your guests cause you anxiety? We know, it’s a delicate choice because there are so many elements to consider! Don’t panic! In this article you will find some interesting tips and ideas to help you tackle this important task without making a mistake!

It must have happened to you too, to receive superfluous objects at some cerimonies and not knowing exactly what to do with them. Our mission is to guide you towards a conscious choice, that is as original, authentic and as useful as possible! For your wedding day to be truly unique, every detail must be taken care of to perfection, favours included!

Where to begin?

Let’s see specifically which steps to follow to plan this aspect of the wedding in an impeccable way, without leaving anything to chance.

  • The first step is to define the style of the cadeau so that it is consistent with the wedding theme, your personal taste and the meaning of your event. It doesn’t make sense to organise an ultra-glamorous, chic and refined wedding and give your guests DIY and rustic design items. Not to mention themed weddings, where the choice of favours is even more specific.
  • The second essential step is to find favours that are not only original and personalised, but also useful, as opposed to the usual classics that end up gathering dust at the bottom of a forgotten drawer. It could be food and wine gifts (such as jars of jam, honey, wine, liqueurs) or a beautiful plant. Valuable handcrafted creations (for example jewels) or simple but useful furnishing objects (such as soap bars, scented candles, small ceramic vases) in short, something destined to remain over time while being functional in everyday life. Alternatively, you can opt for solidarity souvenirs or donations to specific charities.
  • The third step is to think about the message you want to leave to your guests. Whatever your choice, always try to give it some relevance, accompanying the cadeau with a message that explains its actual essence. Only in this way will you avoid falling into the classic cliché of the superfluous object, fully enhancing your idea.
  • It is essential to establish a budget to devote to wedding favors, so as not to waste time when choosing, as is done, for example, to buy the wedding dress.
  • No less important is the timing of the purchase of wedding favors, which we at Wedding in Valdichiana recommend at least five months before the wedding, in order not to incur in unforeseen events such as delays on the part of the supplier, especially if the choice fell on handicrafts or if you need some time to finish customize them personally.
  • Not to be underestimated is the setting up of the table that will host your wedding favors. It is advisable to make it visible enough, to deliver them easily or to give the guests the possibility to take them independently. Remember to decorate the table according to the style of the event and enrich it with sugared almonds, which can be arranged in maxi containers or attached to each cadeau.
  • Finally, do not forget to deliver the cadeau in person even to those who were unable to attend the event, as a sign of thanks.

It’s the details that (really) make a difference to a wedding

“It’s always the details that make the difference”, and this is not just a saying, but the plain truth, especially when it comes to organising a wedding.

Organising a dream wedding necessarily requires a team of professionals who are able to support the couple in every choice and fulfill their every request, so that the wedding day will be exactly like the bride and groom have always dreamed of!

Wedding in Valdichiana’s customised packages include complete or partial proposals for the organisation, of your super event in Tuscany.
Our 20 years’ experience in the hospitality and tourism sector will be a guarantee for you and your guests!

The steps to follow to plan the big day impeccably, leaving nothing to chance

  • Once the location has been chosen, it is important to focus your attention on the colours, theme and style you want to use for the entire ceremony, starting from the invitations, to the dresses, all the way to the event set-up, since, if chosen carefully and meticulously, they will provide added value to the selected location and the entire event.
  • Then we move on to the accessories: in a wedding with a capital M, the latter are not mere decorative objects or details, but are a fundamental part of the reception and ceremony, and, precisely for this reason, they must be chosen in line with the style of the bride and groom and the location, so as to make the entire setting pleasant and elegant. By ‘accessories’ we refer to the study and selection of all the furniture, to the mise en place (i.e. the complete table setting), to the gifts for the guests and, finally, to the lighting set-up.

In the case of a wedding in Valdichiana, it is advisable to opt for simple but refined colours and accessories, in rustic-chic style!
Everything must appear harmonious and faithful to the context in which the big day will take place, namely the natural wonders of Tuscany.

Why get married in Tuscany in the summer

Here’s why Tuscany is the perfect destination to get married in the summertime

The first thing to decide for a couple wishing to get married is the period in which to do it, as well as the season they prefer. In the case of a wedding in Tuscany, every season is perfect for doing it, because Tuscany is considered an ‘always green’ region, that is splendid throughout the year, but given the imminent arrival of the summer season, we at Wedding in Valdichiana want to provide you with a series of reasons why getting married in Tuscany in the summer is a really good idea!

Here are some of them:

  • THE CLIMATE: the summer climate in Tuscany is perfect for weddings and outdoor celebrations, especially those in the afternoon, as the weather is always clear, the temperature is never too sultry and the arrival of sunset is accompanied by a pleasant breeze, as well as being a moment of pure magic
  • THE LONGEST DAYS: in summer, the days get longer which is a real added value for those who want to organise a wedding during this time of year, because with sunset and darkness arriving later than usual, the bride and groom will be able to fully enjoy every moment of their most beautiful day…because, you know, no one would ever want their wedding day to end
  • THE PHOTOS: Tuscany has always been considered one of the most beautiful locations in the world, especially in summer! Photographers from all over the planet often choose this area to carry out photo shoots and video recordings of their projects, whether fashion, art, design or weddings! Natural light, intense colours and authentic marvels will be the perfect set for your dream wedding photos!
  • COLOURS: in summer, Tuscany, and especially the Valdichiana, become palettes of breathtaking colours, envied by painters the world over: the deep green of the wheat fields, the bright red of the poppies, the soft blue of the sky and the bright yellow of the sunflowers…is there a better location and time of year to organise your wedding day?
  • ROMANTICISM: summer evenings in the Valdichiana represent the height of romanticism, because they are characterised by sparkling stars and moonlight, optimal temperatures, intoxicating perfumes and relaxing sounds such as the singing of cicadas

When a couple decides to get married, they feel an indescribable emotion, an emotion they will feel throughout the wedding preparations, from the first moment to the last.
Usually, one of the first choices a married couple has to make is the location, the starting
point for any self-respecting organisation list.

Bachelorette and bachelor party

A wedding in Tuscany, as we know, brings with it parties, joys, unique emotions and sensations that only this fantastic land can give. Everything will be perfect for the fateful day thanks to the organization of the smallest details, to have the best of the best in that magical moment. Prior to the big event, however, there is another party that deserves our attention today: the bachelorette or bachelor party! To prepare for the “yes” day, there is nothing better than celebrating with loved ones, friends or relatives, and you can do it right in Tuscany, in Valdichiana Senese!

The beauty of a bachelorette or bachelor party is to allow everyone to have fun in company and enjoy the last moments before the fateful event we all wait for a lifetime.

These areas are perfect for riding a vintage or brand new vespa and enjoying the scenery. For those who prefer a bit of action, however, quads are available for cruising far and wide through the Tuscan lands. These experiences are perfect for those who want to release the tension before the fateful day!

Speaking of points of view, have you ever thought of practicing yoga by a lake, immersed in the Tuscan hills? For your bachelorette/bachelor party, it is possible to organize a relaxing yoga session on the shores of a lake in Valdichiana Senese, to rediscover spiritual wellness and inner peace.

Pampering with the flavor of wine and thermal waters
