Wedding Ideas: Great ideas
February, the month of love. In Italy, that’d be l’amore. Valentine’s Day itself originated here, with Shakespeare penning Romeo and Juliet set in romantic Verona. With spots like the Amalfi Coast, Sorrento, Capri and Venice seen as idylls, it’s no wonder that the popularity of Italy as the backdrop to the ideal wedding has soared. We’d have to agree that it’s second to none for intimacy, declarations and serenades. If you’re looking for an exquisite destination wedding, Italy has plenty to offer from it’s sprawling coastal shores to it’s evergreen olive groves and quaint towns nestled in the hillside…
