Wedding in Tuscany: a castle for a dream ceremony

The best day of your life deserves a special location.

Between villas, resorts and historic buildings, have you ever thought of celebrating your wedding in a castle in Tuscany?

The magical and timeless atmosphere of an authentic medieval castle will make you feel like the protagonists of a beautiful fairy tale. But how to choose the right location for your wedding in Tuscany? Not all castles offer the same comforts and the same suggestive atmosphere.

Here are our tips for you.

Castles for weddings in Tuscany: how to choose?

 

Authentic atmosphere

Getting married in a castle is the dream of many couples, because it is a location that offers a magical and solemn atmosphere, princely and regal, just as if you were in a fairy tale from another time.
However, it is important that the castle in Tuscany you choose for your wedding has been preserved in respect of its authentic structure. The massive stone walls, the niches, the wooden stairs are precious details, necessary to have an authentic and fairy-tale atmosphere. Any castle in Tuscany that has been modernized and restored without taking care of the authenticity of its structure will never offer the same magical atmosphere.

Spaces and capacities

Celebrating your wedding in a castle in Tuscany is certainly a unique experience, but it is also important to evaluate the practicality of the solutions offered. It is useless to choose a castle that is a small party favor if you are planning to host two hundred people!
Therefore, carefully evaluate the available spaces in a structure and, above all, get informed about its maximum capacity to see if it is in line with your list of guests.
Furthermore, if you want some guests to stay for the night, you will have to choose a castle in Tuscany for weddings that also offers the possibility of booking rooms.

Services and catering

Everything has to be perfect for your wedding, so it’s important to be informed about the additional services offered by the castle. Where will the aperitif be served? And how will the buffet be organized? What about entertainment? Every detail must be carefully planned.
And don’t forget that catering is a key aspect of any wedding. Before choosing the castle in Tuscany that will frame your most beautiful day, also make sure that the catering service they offer is in line with what you are looking for. Not everyone is able to offer a menu for many people, but opting for external catering is certainly more difficult and less practical.
