You’ve been working on your wedding Pinterest board since you were 11. You’ve seen Under the Tuscan Sun only about a million times. It’s time to make your wedding dreams come true with a stunning Tuscan vineyard wedding!
Rustic-style weddings have made a huge comeback in recent years. However, getting married in a local barn is so last year. With VB Events, you can take your wedding to the next level. Experience all the beauty of the Tuscany countryside, while marrying the love of your life in an intimate, rustic ceremony.
The Tuscan countryside is a romantic and adventurous wedding location. The lush vineyards make an amazing backdrop to the happiest day of your life. This location is perfect for couples who love wine, and who want to experience some of the best wine in the world while they tie the knot.
Whether you had to postpone the wedding due to COVID-19 or you are planning a ceremony for the very first time, you and your beloved should consider a wedding held in an authentic vineyard in Tuscany.
Not only will the venue embrace an authentic rustic-chic aesthetic, you will get to walk down the aisle in the fresh hair - against a backdrop of rolling country hills.
According to The Knot, the top wedding trends of 2021 include pops of color, outdoor ceremonies, more intimate weddings, and an increase in travel.
Since everyone has spent the last year cooped up at home, couples across the world are excited to travel, try new foods, and see the sights.
Why not plan a destination wedding and get married in the gorgeous Tuscan countryside?
It is like a wedding and a honeymoon all rolled into one. The best part is that you get to share the experience with all your closest friends and family members, giving them a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
Wedding planning can be a lot - from outfit shopping to putting together the guest list, and all the work that goes into decorations. One benefit of having your wedding at a vineyard in Tuscany, is that you don’t have to spend nearly as much time on DIY, Etsyinspired decorations and signs.
However, it is important to make sure that the venue meets all your needs. When you plan your destination wedding with VB Events, you have several options for where to have your Tuscan vineyard wedding.
Here are 5 things to consider when you are picking out a vineyard venue:
1. Size of Wedding and Guest List
In general, destination weddings and rustic weddings are usually smaller and more intimate than traditional weddings. However, different couples have a different definition of what constitutes an intimate wedding.
Some small weddings have 10 or fewer guests, and some have as many as 50 guests. The most important thing to look for in a venue is that it can comfortably accommodate all your guests.
If you guests are staying on-location, then you will need to either pick a venue with enough rooms for everyone, or narrow down the guest list.
2. Mobility and Accessibility
This is you and your beloved’s reminder to think about the grandparents. If your elderly relatives are attending your destination wedding, then you should take into consideration their mobility.
While outdoor weddings are beautiful, it can be hard for people in wheelchairs or with canes to make it across great distances. Of course, no one wants to be left out because they have difficulty walking across a field of grape vines.
If you or your wedding guests have any mobility concerns, let your wedding planner know. There are many available locations in Tuscany that would be easily accessible to everyone on the guest list.
3. Luxury or Homey
There is a wide range of directions you can go in when you decide to have a rustic wedding. The term “rustic” itself can describe a wide range of wedding aesthetics. For some couples, their rustic wedding is a casual affair in the family barn, complete with a relative manning the grill, games of cornhole, and a few dogs running around.
On the other hand, a rustic wedding can also be a luxurious wedding, complete with a high-fashion designer gown, wooden signage and centerpieces, 5-star food, and a black-tie dress code.
Vineyard weddings can be easily tailored to meet you and your partner’s desires, whether you want to go earthy and casual or luxurious and high-fashion.
4. What Kind of Experience Do You Want?
One of the best parts about planning a destination wedding in Italy is that you and your partner can use it as an opportunity to save money on a honeymoon. Some couples like to stay in Tuscany after their guests return home in order to enjoy some alone time while exploring the culture.
If you and your beloved want to roll your wedding and honeymoon into one, it would be best to choose a centrally-located vineyard or all-inclusive resort for the wedding. That way, you have all your accomodations for the honeymoon already taken care of and you can easily tour Italy.
Tuscany is a very popular wedding destination for this exact reason. Located in central Italy, you can spend your honeymoon in Florence seeing the art, or you can journey south to Rome and spend your first days as newly weds in the most romantic city in the world.
5. Stay True To Yourself
It is easy to get carried away when putting together a wedding Pinterest board. Just because something looks beautiful online, doesn’t mean that it is the best thing for you and your partner. According to Brides.com, the biggest mistake that most wedding planning couples make is to go too trendy with the outfits and makeup, get wedding envy, forget to prioritize what they want, exhaust themselves with too many DIY projects, and forget to set boundaries with the parents.
Remember, this wedding is about you and your beloved. While it is important to consider your guests, it is even more important to not lose yourself in all the suggestions and requests. Just because so-and-so had an expensive wedding with a full candy bar, an explosion of flowers, and custom bridesmaids dresses, doesn’t mean that you have to play “keeping up with the Joneses.”
If you and your beloved really want to see the sights, drink Tuscan wine, and keep the ceremony small, then do it! Don’t let all the Pinterest DIY ideas distract you if you’re not into DIY. And you are under no obligation to wear a certain outfit on your wedding day just because it is in style.
When you plan a destination wedding with VB Events, it is about more than just your big day. It is also about having an authentic, immersive experience where you can experience the culture and enjoy the food and the architecture. Tuscany is renowned for wine tasting, as well as home to world-famous art and views. No matter what you and your beloved are looking for, one of these amazing venues will be the perfect backdrop as you say “I do.”
Borgo Santo Pietro is located near Siena in the heart of Tuscany. It is a 5 star luxury resort that offers both closeness to nature as well as opulence and grandeur. The resort is built around an authentic 13th century villa, which is also home to a “farm to plate” restaurant and enough thoughtfully decorated hotel rooms for all your guests.
Palazzo Pfanner is located in Lucca, Italy is perfect for hosting weddings. The grand staircase and arched ceilings, with a lush garden filled with Roman-style statues, provides the perfect big entrance to wow your guests as you walk up the aisle to say “I do.”
The Palazzo has several historic and artfully decorated rooms to host your beloved and your wedding party in the lap of luxury.

Il Salviatino is a hand-restored 15th century villa that sits on 12 acres of lush, green land. Considered the gold standard for hosting bespoke events, this location is home to 40 available rooms - more than enough room for everyone invited to a small, intimate wedding.
Couples who want their privacy will love this location! Complete with a dreamy pool, a sparking spa, and beautiful green rolling hills, Il Salviatino is the perfect place to host and then unwind after your dream wedding.
Weddings are stereotyped as being stressful to plan, labour-intensive to make everything, and time consuming. You may know a bride or two who didn’t even get to enjoy her own wedding because she was too busy running around and making sure everything went according to plan.
However, weddings do not have to be stressful; not when you hire an experienced wedding planner.
It is especially important to have a wedding planner for a Tuscan vineyard wedding. Not only will a local wedding planner be an expert in the best venues, caterers, and florists, they will be able to help you book everyone from the photographer to the makeup artist.
Since all wedding planners at VB Events speak the local languages, you will never have to worry about a language barrier when you try to make plans.
For a rustic Tuscan vineyard wedding, it can really pay to hire a wedding planner.
If you are obsessed with Pinterest, then you will probably notice that rustic weddings can involve a lot of DIY projects. From the centrepieces to the signage and the venue decorations, many couples discover that, in their attempts to plan a down-to-earth wedding, they are in way over their head. This is where a wedding planner comes in; they can handle all the decorations, design, catering, and scheduling.
On the happiest day of your life, you should be spending it with your beloved. You should not be rushing around organizing the caterers or setting up an entire venue’s worth of decorations by yourself. Trust us, you will want to remember every second of your amazing vineyard wedding. Leave the planning to VB Events while you and your partner enjoy the experience.
With the pandemic nearly over, now is the best time to travel, try new things, and to tie the knot in luxury.
