That's Amore....Tuscan Themed Wedding Ideas

Ahhh Italy, well rather Tuscany to be exact, a region in central Italy known for its breathtaking landscapes,  rich artistic legacy and as the true birthplace of the Italian Renaissance with some of the most influential people in the history of arts and science calling it home. Tuscany boosts unique a culinary tradition, and is famous for its wines, most notably Chianti.  It is truly the most romantic region of Italy with its art, music, culture, history and landscapes, evoking medieval charm with its walled towns, castles and fortresses, and bygone days with its olive groves, vineyards and rambling farmhouses.   

Tuscany provides a wealth of ideas for couple hoping to include their Italian heritage in their wedding theme. Ok think simple, rustic elegance, vineyards, old world charm, Tuscan inspired colors, gold, rust, grape leaves and olive trees, and manicured gardens and oh those gorgeous arches, the bread, the wine, I could go on forever.  

Here are some de.lovely ideas we can't help but adore!

Personalize wedding wine bottles with your own label and 
leave them on the tables for your guests to enjoy. 

A touch of elegance and casual Mediterranean flair. 
 Colorful, edible centerpieces add pop to your tablescape 
and are cost effecient.

We are seriously in love with these olive themed 
invitations from Paisley Quill.  Their unique and expressive design combines a classical scroll motif with the Tuscan olive branch for a vintage Italian feel.

Hope you have enjoyed our tiny stroll through Tuscany! There are so many options that can help you really make your wedding your own.
