Planning a multiday wedding celebration in the stunning landscapes of Tuscany is a dream come true for many couples. From historic villas to rolling vineyards, Tuscany offers a plethora of breathtaking venues to host your festivities. A multiday wedding allows you to extend the joy of your special day and create unforgettable memories with your loved ones. In this comprehensive guide, we’ll explore how to arrange a multiday wedding celebration in Tuscany, including tips for each day of the event and unique themes for dinners and other gatherings.

Day 1: Welcome Reception

Theme: Tuscan Welcome Pizza Party

Kick off your multi-day celebration with a relaxed and intimate welcome reception, welcoming guests to the beauty of Tuscany. Choose a rustic farmhouse or vineyard estate for your venue, and decorate with olive branches, sunflowers, and rustic wooden accents. Serve traditional Tuscan fare such as bruschetta, antipasti, and freshly pizza paired with local wines. Create a warm and inviting atmosphere with live music or a DJ playing Italian classics and modern hits.

Theme: Quintessential Aperitivo

Welcoming guests after a long day (or two or three) of travel is a wonderful touch to serve as the official beginning of your multiday wedding celebration. When you think of sitting back and enjoying the sun set over the rolling Tuscan Hills of Italy, odds are you imagine yourself holding either a glass of wine (of course) or our iconic Aperol Spritz! Why not offer your guests a meal of heavy appetizers (antipasti) featuring the local fare of the area a bar for beer, wine and spritzes and also a vintage gelato cart to set the mood. It is the perfect way to unwind after a long journey.

Theme: Rustic Italian Restaurant with Overlook

For couples getting married in off-seasons or when the weather just doesn’t look like it will cooperate, why not pile everyone in vans or a bus and head into the local town for a true taste of local fare. This is a great idea for groups with multiple dietary dislikes or restrictions. Usually, the restaurant will offer you a pared down menu with maybe three antipasti, three primis, three secondis, veggies and desserts. It can be a cost effective way to feed a group, ensure everyone gets what they want and that everyone gets to do a little sightseeing of the local town and some photo ops!

Day 2: Rehearsal Dinner

Theme: Under the Tuscan Stars

Host a magical rehearsal dinner under the twinkling stars of the Tuscan sky. Set up long banquet tables adorned with fairy lights, candles, and floral centerpieces for a romantic ambiance. Serve a sumptuous feast of traditional Italian dishes, such as pasta al pesto, wood-fired pizzas, and grilled meats, paired with regional wines. Create a lively and festive atmosphere with live entertainment, such as a local band or Italian folk dancers, and encourage guests to dance the night away under the stars.

Day 3: Wedding Day

Theme: Tuscan Elegance

 On your wedding day, channel the timeless elegance of Tuscany with a sophisticated and refined theme. Choose a historic villa or grand estate for your ceremony and reception venue, and decorate with lush florals, elegant linens, and ornate candelabras. Opt for a classic color palette of ivory, gold, and sage green to complement the natural beauty of your surroundings. Serve a gourmet Italian feast featuring regional specialties such as local cheeses and charcuterie, fresh pasta or risotto, fresh seafood or Bistecca Fiorentino and decadent desserts! (Might we recommend the couple build a traditional Italian wedding cake called a “millefoglie” right before the guests! It is always great funa dn makes for amazing photos! And of course, any Italian fest would not be complete without the  accompaniment of fine local wines and champagne. Create a romantic and unforgettable atmosphere with live music, a string quartet, or a DJ spinning your favorite tunes.

Day 4: Farewell Luncheon

Theme: Tuscan Brunch

Bid farewell to your guests with a leisurely and indulgent brunch inspired by the flavors of Tuscany. Choose a charming garden or terrace overlooking the countryside for your venue, and decorate with fresh flowers, linen tablecloths, and vintage tableware. Serve a selection of brunch favorites such as pastries, frittatas, fresh fruit, and artisanal cheeses, accompanied by mimosas, bellinis, and freshly brewed coffee. Create a relaxed and convivial atmosphere where guests can reminisce about the magical moments of your wedding celebration and toast to your future happiness.

Theme: Poolside Barbeque

One way to chase away the cobwebs from the night before is a fun and relaxing day by the pool. Keep things quiet and lowkey, offering guests, grilled veggies and assorted meats, fresh, crisp salads (lots of water) and of course any leftover libations from the night before! A fun trend is to have pool floats delivered directly to the venue so they can be used all weekend long. (Helpful Hint: Pay a little extra for a GOOD electric pump! Your lungs, brain and body will thank you! Haha!
