Many of these items were discovered during Pompeii's original excavation, which is just incredible. Imagine the experience you and your wedding guests will have surrounded by such unbelievable history.

Choosing your wedding colours is a crucial step in planning a wedding in any season, but it can be challenging when it’s for an Autumn wedding. Of course, given that it's pumpkin patch season, orange is a no-brainer, but if that's not quite your thing, don't worry. Numerous fall wedding colour schemes are available, including deep jewel tones, earthy neutrals, and pastels, which will capture the season's charm while looking chic and current. 

Have you decided on your fall colour scheme yet? We’ve rounded up some great examples of fall wedding palettes that will spark your imagination and help you plan your dream wedding. 

Autumn  wedding palettes
Fall wedding colors

Fall Wedding Colors That Aren’t Boring

Autumn weddings are popular yearly because the weather is getting cooler than summer, but not yet the frigid winter. And, of course, (depending on where you live) the shades on the trees are changing, different florals are blooming, and the humidity isn’t so bad. So it’s genuinely a great time to get married. 

Terracotta and Greenery

Terracotta is a lovely option for a fall wedding for you and your significant other. This warm, earthy color has been popular for some time, and we're not surprised. It's ideal for making your wedding feel warm and inviting.

Beautiful contrast between flora and terracotta. It feels like home when there is greenery around because it gives the walls an earthy, terracotta-like texture. It can serve as a backdrop for photographs or as subtle accent lighting around your venue. Everyone will like the aesthetically pleasing setting created by the contrasting greens and browns!

Navy and Burgundy

Want something classy, stylish, and romantic? Choose burgundy roses and dark navy blue flowers for a natural appearance. Flowers can be lavishly arranged in large and tiny bouquets, with one bouquet for each person. This is a dramatic and elegant color palette for your Fall wedding. 

Teal and Tangerine

Teal and orange are the perfect combinations if you're looking for a rich, colorful palette. At first sight, these textures might not appear to go well together, but they go pretty well together. Because teal and tangerine are complementary colors or opposites on the color wheel, they create a visual contrast that helps intensify each hue's intensity when used together. 

Both of these colors are warm and cool, and they both have characteristics that complement one another. As accent colors or stand-alone colors, they both can give your wedding-day outfit more depth and dimension. In addition, these wedding colours photograph beautifully. 

Copper and Merlot

You know the American saying, “If you find a penny, pick it up. All day long you’ll have good luck”? A penny's coating is made of copper, which has long been thought to bring luck and love into one's life. That’s perfect for weddings, right?

Copper is one of our favorite wedding colors because of its glamorous sheen and the elegant and sophisticated ambiance it creates. When combined with a deep merlot-inspired hue, it appears opulent and welcoming. For a European-chic aesthetic, include traditional calligraphy, wax seals, and gentle greenery in this fall wedding color scheme.

Raspberry and Green

Raspberry and green are beautiful for any type of wedding but look especially beautiful at vineyard weddings. 

Jewel Tones

Jewel tones are often a safe bet, which is why fall weddings continue to choose them year after year. To give your palette a regal feel, incorporate deep hues like burgundy, green, navy blue, and dark purple. Flatware, candlesticks, and table chargers with gold trim add glimmer and romanticism to a tablescape with jewel tones.

Plum, Green, and Ivory

The result is tasteful and romantic when you blend the muted versions of these lovely hues. If you want to create a garden-inspired wedding theme, green and purple are stunning colors to use. It will look even better if you include unexpected details like herbs and dried floral arrangements that enhance the botanical motif. 

We can absolutely picture this wedding palette at the stunning Italian wedding venues' ancient and well-manicured gardens with the majestic sea as the backdrop

Burgundy and Gold

This one is one of the most adaptable (and risk-free) color schemes for an autumn wedding. Burgundy and gold are timeless colours, regardless of your wedding's boho, rustic, or formal theme. 

While burgundy is a deep, muted red and gold is a metallic yellow, both warm hues will give everyone the impression that they are at an autumn wedding. However, you may easily incorporate these two colors into your clothing even if you don't have much décor.

Beautiful Color Palettes

Lavender and Amethyst

If your wedding has a vintage theme, we recommend a two-tone palette with light and dark purple tones. These fall wedding colours can be gorgeous, romantic, edgy, or all of the above, depending on how you design them!

We especially love how lavender can add vibrant pops of color while amethyst infuses a rich fall aesthetic. 

Navy and Gold

Are you planning a traditional wedding? The perfect colors for any elegant autumn celebration are navy and gold. They are classic and elegant without being overly simple. Leave them as-is, or add burgundy and burnt orange splashes to other parts of your design for extra cosiness.

Dusty Blue, White, and Green

To master this autumn palette, you should start by picking a dusty blue. Incorporating it into your wedding is best done by combining it with white and green flowers. Green will assist bring more color without overpowering the other elements in the space, while white will lighten the color scheme and add some contrast between your dress and bouquet.

Dusty Rose and Burgundy

You can choose any shade of dusty rose as a gentle, muted pink. It works well for both floral centerpieces and wedding invites and your decor. You might, for instance, use Dusty Rose as the background color of your invitation or as an accent color on the envelope or RSV{ card.

Try to include burgundy details throughout the venue (such as napkins) and dress up the tables with burgundy flowers like rose or ranunculus bouquets to tie these colors in with other elements of your big day! The result will be a romantic and beautiful wedding. 

Burgundy, Peach, and Greenery

Peach is a pale orange hue, whereas burgundy is a dark red. These two hues go well together since they are complementary to one another. Instead of utilizing black or navy blue for your bridesmaids' dresses, burgundy can be a more traditional choice. Additionally, combine it with greenery (consider pine trees) to provide an earthy atmosphere ideal for autumn weddings (or fall-inspired ones).

Brown and Red

Red has been a popular wedding color for decades because it symbolizes love. But when it’s a fall wedding, you can really have some fun with red accents by mixing them with some unexpected Autumn hues. 

Particularly for rustic fall weddings, vibrant orange and crimson are frequently combined. However, this dark red, black, and brown texture scheme feels equally suited for any elegant and rural wedding with a modern twist if you want something pastoral.

Orange and White

Orange and white (or ivory) are your go-to colors because they make us think of homemade pies for dessert, hot apple cider, lots of pumpkin decor, and nice flannel blankets.

Champagne and Salmon

Salmon and champagne are both chic neutral hues. They can serve as the primary colors in your wedding palette or serve as accent colors.

Suppose you decide to utilize these as your primary fall wedding colors. In that case, they look stunning with less saturated versions of the champagne and salmon we've just discussed (for example, pale skin tone ivory is a great color choice). Even better, you might emphasize their neutral tones by including white or silver accessories in your decor!

Emerald Green and Moss

A beautiful two-tone color palette can be made with several tones of green. For example, when combined with a mossy color, sophisticated emerald or dark teal looks exceptionally stylish. This combination would look fantastic for a forest, garden, or vineyard wedding.

Fall is a beautiful time to get married, and if you choose one of the color palettes, you’ll undoubtedly be designing an unforgettable aesthetic. Using these hues in your decor and your flowers and bridal party attire will create a cohesive look. And if you add metallic touches such as gold or copper, it will elevate the theme to a luxurious and sophisticated style. 

All of our life experiences are sewn together by color. For example, a particular hue of yellow may instantly transport you back to your childhood summer days spent playing on the beach's soft sand, while the color red may remind you of your yearly family road trip when the leaves change.

An infinite number of colours finishes, and undertones to pick from enables you to entirely create the ambiance of your wedding day, down to the napkins and bridesmaid dresses. So feel free to infuse your favorite color and definitely your personality, and the result will be a fabulous event no one will forget.

The first thing you need to do is decide on your wedding date. The location is a popular Italian wedding venue, so booking your date well in advance is important. Once you set your date, you can start planning the rest of your wedding.

The next thing you need to think about is your guest list. The Villa San Michele Hotel can accommodate up to 200 guests, so make sure to invite everyone you want to attend. If you're having a smaller wedding, the hotel also has smaller event spaces that may be more suitable for your needs.

You'll also need to decide on catering, flowers, music, decorations, and any additional events you may want to host.

What Type of Ceremony Can You Choose?

There are many different types of wedding ceremonies you can choose from when getting married here. If you are looking for a traditional ceremony, you can opt for a Catholic or Protestant service. Both of these services will be conducted by an officiant in front of your guests. 

If you are looking for something a little more unique, you can opt for a humanist ceremony conducted by either a celebrant or an officiant. This type of ceremony is non-religious and focuses on the couple's love for each other. You can also choose to have a civil ceremony, which a mayor or magistrate conducts. Again, this ceremony is secular and not affiliated with any religion.

Wedding Receptions

There are many breathtaking reception areas at the Hotel, including an outdoor terrace with stunning views of Florence, the city’s skyline, and the surrounding Tuscan hillsides.

From cobblestone streets, historic cathedrals, scenic vineyards, beaches, finest Italian wedding villas and venues, it’s the best place to tie the knot. So when you want to create a “wedding experience” that’s unforgettable, you need an area that has it all - and Italy is it!

With a Catholic wedding in Italy, you’ll experience Venice's perfect Instagram filter-like golden glow, the elegant style of Roman boutiques, sunlight splattered across olive trees, and its delicious foods.

These are just a handful of the numerous explanations for why Italy is the best wedding location. So, we’ve put together this helpful guide to help you plan your Catholic wedding in Italy.

Italian Catholic Wedding Traditions You Should Know

Italy is recognized as the country of love, from the seductive sound of water lapping against the walls of Venice's medieval palazzi to the seductive aroma of citrus blossoms in Sicily. To keep things traditional, you should be familiar with the most common Catholic wedding traditions. 

Long-standing practices abound in Catholic wedding traditions, but they go well beyond reciting a few verses from the Bible and having a priest officiating. Thankfully, a lot of Roman Catholic wedding customs are generally known. With the help of this guide, you'll know what to anticipate while planning your Roman Catholic destination wedding. Here are just a few Catholic wedding traditions in Italy.

Wedding Date

Fridays are rarely used for weddings in Italy since it is said that on this day, evil spirits are formed, and being married on a Friday will only bring you bad luck. The best day to get married is Sunday since it is considered lucky and represents fertility and prosperity.

Good Luck

In many Italian weddings, the bride and the groom will take every precaution to ensure that the union is blessed with good fortune. The groom must have a tiny bit of iron in his pocket to ward off evil spirits. And to bring in luck, the bride will make a little rip in her veil.

First Look

We’re not talking about the first look where the couple sees each other before the ceremony…In some Italian areas, the bride is not permitted to look in the mirror before the wedding. Wow! Now that’s an interesting tradition. But luckily, she can take a peek if she takes off a glove or shoe first. 

No White

You’ve probably heard the wedding tradition where no one can (or should) wear white to a wedding. This Catholic wedding tradition will probably last forever, so yes! Even if the bride isn’t wearing white, tradition states no guest should wear white to an Italian wedding.

The Bridal Bouquet

In Italy, the groom is expected to pay for the bride's bouquet as his final gift to his sweetheart before she becomes his wife. The groom must pay for the floral arrangement and ensure that it is brought to the bride on the wedding day; she can choose the flowers and colors the groom must pay for it. 

Catholic Marriage Certificate

The newlyweds receive a Catholic marriage certificate as proof that their union was "solemnized" (a ceremony occurred). That’s it! It’s just one document that is needed to complete the requirements for a “legal Catholic marriage.” But, for a private catholic wedding, only getting a Catholic marriage license is insufficient. In most locations, you must still obtain a formal marriage license from the town hall or registrar's office before the wedding.

Catholic Marriage Requirements

A Catholic wedding ceremony differs significantly from a traditional wedding in many ways. Therefore, couples embarking on this magnificent, sacred journey must be aware of the traditions and rules of this type of religious ceremony.

Contrary to most other weddings, Catholic marriages may call for extensive pre-marriage counselling with a priest, the completion of specific paperwork, and even participation in specific church functions.

You may believe that the typical Catholic marriage preparations take a month or even a few months, but many churches have a long waiting time of up to several months! Here are some of the Catholic marriage requirements for your wedding in Italy.

Church Ceremony

Most of the time, a Catholic wedding must take place within a church. The couple must feel close to God throughout the ceremony because it is unique and sacred. Hence the ceremony shouldn't be held somewhere else, like by the beach or in a vineyard.

If you dream of an outdoor venue for your wedding, we’re sorry, but for a Catholic wedding in Italy, you’ll have to skip that in favour of a blessed church wedding. Also, remember that Catholic wedding ceremonies do not have custom vows written by the couple; instead, the priest will recite traditional vows, and the couple repeats them.

The Interview

The first step toward walking down the aisle is often for the couple planning to get married to schedule an appointment with the priest before Pre-Cana (or pre-wedding). If you decide to get married in a Catholic church, many parts of your wedding may change, including your clothing, your bridal party, and the locations, so consult your parish priest as soon as possible.

Prenuptial Investigation

The canonical interview may be followed immediately or accompanied by a church investigation. According to the church, the goal of this study is to determine how prepared you and your spouse are for marriage. Divorce is still not encouraged!

Following the initial consultation, a couple will go through the Prenuptial Investigation, a one-on-one discussion with a priest conducted under oath. The investigation aims to determine how well they comprehend marriage's four fundamental [tenets]: that you join into it voluntarily, that it is a lifetime commitment, that it is exclusive, and that it is open to children.

Required Documents For Church Weddings Abroad In Italy

Different churches may have other requirements for marriage. Many will need documentation of confirmation, communion, and baptism. You can ask the individual church where you received the sacraments for a copy because most churches keep records of attendance at these ceremonies. Don't worry if that's not achievable. Many priests will accept two witness affidavits for each sacrament.

Catholic Wedding Pre-Cana

When planning a beautiful catholic wedding in Italy, you must do the Pre-Cana. Couples will go through Pre-Cana, the church's mandated program for marriage preparation, after completing their paperwork. The Pre-Cana program may have a variety of criteria, depending on the diocese, including many sessions with a priest, attendance at a required event like a conference or retreat, and more active participation in church activities.

The sessions with a priest make up the majority of Pre-Cana. In addition to providing guidance on what the church teaches about marriage, during these hour-long counseling sessions, couples will be questioned about existing and potential problems in their union, such as how to handle money, how to deal with potential in-laws, how to behave in public or any other issue that might be impeding faithfulness or fulfilling one's role as a spouse.

Before continuing with the marriage preparation, the priest has the right to suggest a session with a psychologist to address specific difficulties if he discovers any "impediments" to marriage or carrying out the spousal function.

Getting Married In A Catholic Church

While getting married in a Catholic church in Italy may require a few extra steps, the experience and the memories will be worth it. But, if you feel like the process seems too much to handle on your own, hire a wedding planner. They will help keep you on track and on budget and make sure nothing that is required is missed. They are worth every penny spent, especially when you're getting married abroad.

8 Ways to Deal with Wedding Planning Stress and Keep Your Sanity

When you're planning a wedding, every little detail can feel like an insane amount of pressure. The potential stressors are endless—and they all add up to one giant nerve-wracking experience. And while all this pressure can bring out the worst in us (yelling at your mom or bawling your eyes out during a stressful moment doesn't exactly qualify as "normal" behaviour), it's also the type of situation where we grow as people and learn about ourselves.

So, as challenging as wedding planning can be, it also can strengthen your relationships and help you discover new things about yourself. It is, after all, a labour of love that is worth putting in the work. 

The Most Stressful Part Of Wedding Planning

Ok, we're going to be totally transparent here…the most stressful part of wedding planning is different for everyone. No two people will experience wedding planning the same way, which is why what makes it stressful will differ.

For some, it might be the logistics of finding the right venue or the budgeting aspects of the process. For others, it might be the emotional aspects of wedding planning, such as deciding on the guest list or choosing your vows.

Engagement ring shopping could be the most stressful part of wedding planning for some, and this can be due to several factors. For example, maybe you don't have much experience with jewellery, or perhaps you have a lot of pressure from friends and family to spend a certain amount of money on the ring. 

And yet, for others, the most stressful part of wedding planning might be picking out the invitations or decorations for the reception. 

Maybe you have a lot of friends or family who want to be a bridesmaid or groomsman, making this part of wedding planning feel highly stressful.

It's ok! Your love story is unique, and your wedding planning experience will be as well. And although you may receive some flack from friends and family for being so stressed, it's your wedding, and you want it to be perfect.

So, it's ok to stress–sometimes. However, what isn't healthy is to stress yourself to the point of illness or ruining relationships, so that's why you're here!

With these helpful tips, you can ease through and eliminate the stress of wedding planning on relationships.

How To Counteract Wedding Planning Stress

Set Realistic Expectations For Yourself

The first step in wedding planning is setting realistic expectations.

This can seem like an obvious thing to do, but it's so easy to get swept up in the planning process and lose sight of what's realistic. You and your partner must set expectations for yourselves, both financially and timeline-wise.

While there are some things you can control (like the types of flowers you want to use or the floor plan of the reception hall), there are also plenty of things you can't control (weather, other people's availability, vendors' schedules, etc.).

It's important to remember that nothing will ever be perfect, and trying to make it that way can drive you crazy. So, sit down and make a list of everything you want to include in the wedding, and then another list of all the things you can't control. Then, cross-reference the two to see if there are any possible conflicts or issues that arise.

Don't Be Afraid To Ask For Help.

One of the best ways to get through wedding planning is to ask for help. This can involve asking your family and friends for help with things like sending out invitations or hosting a shower, or even hiring a wedding planner to help ease some of the burdens off your plate.

While wedding planners are priceless, they do add another layer of complexity to the planning process, so you'll want to make sure you find one that you're comfortable with and that you can trust. 

Hiring a wedding planner can be a lifesaver.

First, you just want to make sure that you select a wedding planner whose style you love, understands your vision, and blends well with your personality. Planning your wedding should be a fun and memorable experience, and having a talented wedding planner can help you achieve that. 

Stress Of Wedding Planning On Relationships

Wedding planning is often considered as being one of the most stressful times of a couple's relationship. With so many expectations placed on the couple to throw the "perfect" wedding, many couples go into wedding planning with unrealistic expectations for themselves and each other. 

This pressure can cause stress in the relationship, both between the two of you and with your family and friends. To avoid letting wedding planning stress impact your relationship, make sure you're communicating with each other and keeping each other in the loop on everything that's happening. And if possible, set aside some alone time to help reconnect with each other after a stressful day.

In any relationship, it's always essential that you have open lines of communication, understand each other's strengths, and know when to shut things off for some one-on-one time. Finding time for date nights and designating a no-fly zone where anything wedding planning related is off limits can be the key to keeping love alive. And, of course, it will also help to lower wedding planning stress.  

How To Deal With Wedding Planning Stress

Create A Breathing Space

When all the stress of wedding planning starts to feel overwhelming, create a breathing space for yourself. This can be something as simple as taking a few minutes to sit and breathe, or it can be something more complex like meditating, getting a massage, or going to a yoga class. 

Do something that allows you to slow down and take a break from wedding planning for a few minutes. This will help bring you back to reality and give you a fresh perspective on what's important. This can also be a great thing to do with your partner if you both feel like you need a little extra help dealing with the stress.

Be Flexible And Be Ready To Adapt

Something that will help you get through wedding planning without losing your mind is being as flexible as possible. This means not having rigid ideas about how things have to be done and being open to changing your plans if they're not going well. You can't control everything, and you and your partner can't expect everything to go perfectly the way you imagined. 

So, be prepared to roll with the punches and be open to adapting when things don't go according to plan. It's also important to be flexible with your family members' expectations

While you and your partner might be the ones getting married, you can't control their reactions or what they need from you.

So, try to be open and flexible with them, too, and remember that everything takes time. Getting married is a huge thing, and it's going to take a lot of time and effort to pull off. And remember, a wedding planner can help! They can be the intermediate between you and vendors or you and the family. Trust us; they're worth their weight in gold. 

Take Time To Care For Yourself Physically And Emotionally

Sometimes, wedding planning can cause us to forget to take time to care for ourselves, and it's easy to get caught up in the moment and lose track of what's important.

To avoid this, make it a point to schedule some time to do things that are important to you, like girls' or boys' night out, shopping, going to the doctor or dentist, getting your nails done, or even finding time to exercise and eat well (assuming you have the funds to do so). 

You're under a lot of pressure and stress, so you must take care of yourself. And often, when we're stressed out, we tend to push people away and make impulsive decisions or engage in self-defeating behaviours.

This can include things like drinking too much or smoking, or it can even mean letting things in your relationship get to the point of being abusive. To combat this, make sure you're getting enough sleep and spending time with friends who support you and make you happy.

How To Plan A Wedding Without Stress

As with most things in life, the best way to deal with wedding planning is to make sure you have a healthy balance of managing your emotions and expectations and putting in the time and effort to get everything done. One of the best ways to start this process is by making a timeline. 

This can be as simple as writing down a list of everything that needs to happen (or needs to be decided on) during the planning process when it needs to be done and checking it off once it's been completed.

The to-do list is real during wedding planning, and it's an ongoing, evolving part of the planning process.

As one to-do list gets completed, there will be another one that gets started. It's a great way to keep you organized, on track, and on budget. And trust us, the incredible feeling you'll get by "checking off each item" is absolutely rewarding.
