Venice Inspired Wedding

Venice Inspired Wedding

The images here will make you want to jet away to Venice for a destination wedding! But if that’s not in your plans, bring Venice to your celebration. See how by reading on!

Colour Palette for a Venice Inspired Wedding


The colour often speaks for the personality of the couple as well as sets the theme of the wedding. If you decide to have your wedding at a gorgeous lake, just like this couple (except they were blessed to be near the Venice canals), then you will soon appreciate the fun of choosing the right colour according to the scenery. Not to forget that season always plays a large role in the colour selection for the wedding.

Nowadays people love to get in touch with nature and spend some time outdoors. To create the perfect natural background for your wedding, combine the use of pastel pink or peach with funky orange, bright pink, gold, and royal blue, as well as incorporate some warm colours such as terracotta and sandy tones. This nature-inspired theme composed of saturated tones will work great with natural materials such as wood, glass, stone, and cotton.

This couple went for a classic blue, gold, and red theme with hints of earthy tones as well as some other vibrant shades!

What to Look for in a Venue for a Venice Inspired Wedding


The first thing that you should take into account while selecting your wedding venue in Venice is that there are likely to be two separate parts of your wedding to organise. Number one is the wedding ceremony and then comes the wedding reception. As far as the ceremony is concerned, there are so many couples who still favour a church wedding. Plus point? Venice is full of beautiful churches!

In the canals near those churches are beautiful boats that can be used as a means of transportation from the church to the wedding reception location. Just like the bride in this wedding inspiration board has made use of local transportation; she’s chosen boats, to sail her guests to the reception dinner, enjoying a captivating scenery in the meantime!

Details for a Venice Inspired Wedding


Small details make up for the big elements at your wedding. In this Venice-inspired wedding, the gorgeous and intricate details are a sight to behold! From the red rose petals splayed across the church stairs to the matte royal blue seating decorating the rustic boat, everything is on point.

A tall, white church, a wooden platform near the shore, bright and vibrant floral decorations adorning the balconies of the traditional and old-school restaurants, and red draperies covering the windows – spectacular. A stunning white Gondola booked especially for the lovely couple, and a scenic view are all that make it a wedding to be remembered!

Reception Decor for a Venice Inspired Wedding


Venice is loaded with art, culture, history, and music. This enchanting city and its traditions will make your wedding day even more special with the intertwined canals, rustic bridges, and historic courtyards to create an inimitable scene. And take it from us, there is no other city more romantic than Venice to host your wedding reception.

This couple hosted an intimate and private terrace wedding reception overlooking the calm waters of the Grand Canal. There is a traditional long dining table decorated with antique pieces and glass vessels holding the gorgeous flowers. The comfortable sofa seats are adorned with fuchsia pink and dark brown cushions, matching the overall theme of the restaurant.

Brown metal lanterns are hanging from the ceiling above the table and the balcony railing is decorated with fresh in-season, purple, and pink flowers. The overall look is minimal yet extremely appealing to the eye, exactly what most couples opt for when having a wedding in Venice.

Table Decor for a Venice Inspired Wedding


Table decor is as important as any other aspect of the wedding reception and most reception dinners held in Venice have a traditional floral arrangement paired with metal and glass antique pieces, stylish candle holders, and tall, fancy candelabras. It not only brings out a natural element in the wedding but also creates a warm and relaxed environment blanketed in fresh floral fragrance.

This couple opted for minimal table decor but made it stand out with the colour selection. They went for white dinner plates and modern-style drinking glasses with plain silverware. Royal blue table napkins complimented the white tablescape as well as the small glass and metal decoration items. The rustic metal serving dishes added more to the beauty of this classic Italian wedding. And to top it all off, red, white, dusty pink, and green florals uniquely sat atop the table.

Wedding Invitations for a Venice Inspired Wedding


These aesthetic Venice wedding invitations were inspired by the beauty of this romantic city of breathtaking waterways and glorious sceneries. The wedding invitations were designed keeping in mind the red, gold, and blue theme of this wedding. And, undoubtedly, it has created something truly unique and timeless. The sandy envelope is sealed with a triangular-cut sticker which represents the aesthetics of Venice city.

The wedding invitations are printed on a white base with red and blue writing on it along with some traditional designs. There is a variety of stamps used on the white paper envelope that represents the theme of the wedding, and there is a small white card serving as a direction guide to make it easier for the guests to navigate the venue. How cool and trendy!

Bouquets and Boutonnieres for a Venice Inspired Wedding


In a church wedding, apart from the bride and the groom, the wedding bouquet is another focus, so its adornment should be ultimate in every aspect! You can choose to have large blooms as your bridal bouquet or go for baby's breath, hydrangeas, roses, and other flowers surrounded by greenery to create a garden-like atmosphere.

A classic bridal bouquet is an eternal style: compact and round, with roses and green foliage. The bride in this wedding shoot is carrying a gorgeous bouquet made out of garden-fresh white and blush pink roses with a little bit of greenery. If you want to add a modern touch, simply add an olive or eucalyptus branch!

Wedding Cake Ideas for a Venice Inspired Wedding


Awaited by the guests, your delicious wedding cake will share some of the spotlights upon its arrival! It is one of the key moments of your wedding reception and marks the end of the dinner. Traditional white wedding cakes are no longer the only option available on the table, so choosing your wedding cake design according to your wedding theme is much encouraged.

You can go for a minimal single-tiered wedding cake as long as the cake design has just the right balance of simplicity and aesthetic decor. Think gorgeous gold ribbons, delicate floral assortments, and royal blue and red fondant with simple hand-designed art. How gorgeous!

Wedding Dresses and Accessories for a Venice Inspired Wedding


For this Venice-inspired wedding, the bride can be seen clad in a pure white dress cut out of lace and silk. A heavenly combination! It is a conventional full-length dress with a sweetheart neckline, long trail, and slight flare. To accessorise this dress, she has chosen a simple, multilayered beaded bracelet matching the colour of her dress and her sparkling diamond wedding ring!

For the shoes, our bride opted for comfortable yet chic white pumps, beautified with crisscrossed straps and block heels. This wedding dress and accessories style is the epitome of the phrase, "beauty is simple." Just like Venice! We know you’ll be inspired.

Wedding Photo Shoot Ideas for a Venice Inspired Wedding


Venus is particularly a suitable wedding destination for intimate gatherings with a few but close guests. Just like every other aspect, wedding photography also reflects the personality of the couple as well as the wedding theme. There are a lot of hidden corners in the streets of Venice that are not overcrowded, where you can have your portrait session.

Make sure to include the beautiful Gondola ride in your wedding pictures and capture every detail to make your big day unforgettable!
