7 Stylish Serving Ideas for a Gourmet Italian Wedding

Italy – the home of romance, fine wine and a world-class gastronomy. Part of our role as a wedding planner in Italy is to infuse Italy’s irresistible local flavours into your dream day. To create a gourmet Italian wedding that marries Italian delicacies celebrated around the planet with unexpected surprises your guests won’t forget

Here are some of our most mouth-watering suggestions to create an authentic taste of Italy in your wedding celebrations. We promise your guests will love them!

Gourmet greats

Swap sparkling serving platters for a more immersive experience for this one! We’ll organise a host of local producers to design a hand-picked market stall experience. Picture perfectly themed stations poised and ready as you exit the ceremony. It’s time to get the celebrations started!

Invite your guests to browse, to try and to experience your favourite Italian flavours. This makes a brilliant surprise during your cocktail hour and canapés and works for guest lists both intimate and large.

Centre stage

Keep the party in full swing as you take your seats for dinner. We pride ourselves on carving out magical moments as your wedding planner in Italy. That means we have first-class partner vendors at our fingertips. We’re also no strangers to thinking outside the box, promising each couple an experience that is truly unique.

Wow your guests with a live pasta making display by Razdore, before diving into a delicious plate. Next it’s time to turn things up a level and get interactive, with guests mixing and mingling as they make their own pesto! It’s a brilliant ice breaker activity for guests who may be meeting for the first time.

Finally, as the daylight fades and the dance floor fills, it’s the turn of Italy’s speciality pizza to take the spotlight. Exchange a traditional evening buffet for a DIY pizza station. With toppings to suit every guest, this guarantees empty plates and plenty of fuel for dancing late.

Sip, sip, hooray!

For country-style celebrations, a Limoncello bar should be your go-to. Complete with a beautifully styled vintage serving cart and real lemon trees, we’ll create the ultimate Limoncello corner. Plus, with pops of yellow, natural foliage and charming touches, our Limoncello cart promises a laid-back vibe for cocktail hour alfresco.

Speakeasy style

Style it two ways – as a wedding planner in Italy, flexibility and personalisation is a promise. Invoke a super-cool speakeasy at your drinks reception with a moodily lit drinks tent, where waiters serve you secret drinks and a plush leather bar with statement lighting awaits.

Furthermore, for all-out drama and a truly immersive style, we’ll help you bring the speakeasy theme into your entire reception. Picture cabaret performances, contortionists and acrobats suspended from the rooftops. Even burlesque queens taking to the stage! The ultimate after-dark entertainment that your guests will definitely write home about.
