The best season to get married? The one that suits you best!
When a couple decides to organise their wedding, they are faced with an infinite range of possibilities, which are often difficult to navigate. The date chosen can be an inspiration for defining the style and character of the event. Each time of year, in fact, offers precious ideas for creating original themed weddings, in which every element is in harmony with the season of reference: the colours of the decorations, the floral decorations, the tableau de mariage, the mise en place, the dishes on the menu, the dessert buffet, the cake, etc.. But what is the best season to get married? In the past, couples used to prefer spring and summer, but nowadays many couples prefer the poetic charm of autumn and the enchanting atmosphere of winter.
The Antiche Scuderie Odescalchi offers breathtaking scenery that changes with the changing seasons. The vast green spaces and large halls of the historic residence make it possible to plan every moment of the wedding, taking into account the climate, the wishes of the bride and groom and their specific needs, with the possibility of easily moving the entire event inside in case of bad weather. The venue is granted on an exclusive basis 365 days a year, both at weekends and on weekdays, guaranteeing the utmost care and perfection in every detail.
Wedding in autumn: emotions in colour
During autumn, the Antiche Scuderie Odescalchi undergoes a splendid metamorphosis. The centuries-old trees that surround Tenuta Vigna Grande are tinged with bright colours, ranging from yellow to orange and from scarlet to purple. The warm tones of the vegetation provide the ideal basis for creating beautiful themed arrangements, to be personalised with berries, leaves, flowers and seasonal fruits. On mild days, the outdoor spaces can still accommodate some crucial wedding moments, such as the authentic civil ceremony on site, the aperitif in the garden, the dessert buffet, the sugared almond reception and the cutting of the cake.
During the colder months, the halls of the historic residence are warmed by the imposing fireplaces, which contribute to creating an even more intimate and familiar atmosphere. The menu can include autumn dishes such as polenta, mushroom, pumpkin and chestnut dishes.
Celebrating a wedding in winter: enchanted atmospheres
For those who love to impress, winter is the best season to get married. Many couples are enchanted by this season, which evokes the magic of the Festivals, the lightness of snowy landscapes, the magnificence of masked balls and sumptuous banquets.
The possibility of organising weddings between December and January, a period rich in festivities, is one of the main strengths of the Antiche Scuderie Odescalchi. The settings can be inspired by the glittering colours of Christmas or the fairy-tale charm of winter gardens, with a play of lights and candles to illuminate every detail. The large halls of the historic residence can also be used to set up an imposing fir tree, which can become the centrepiece of an original sugared almond reception.
The sparkling February atmosphere, in turn, offers precious ideas for a romantic Valentine’s Day wedding or an elegant Carnival wedding, with filigree masks to be used as gifts for guests, Murano-style crystals and Baroque details inspired by Venetian tradition. Menus can include dishes related to the specific occasion and typical winter products, such as hot soups and mulled wine.
Getting married in spring: grace and beauty
In spring, every corner of the Estate glows with vitality. The stream and the ancient fountain sparkle like the waters of Lake Bracciano, located a short distance from the property. The intense green of the gardens and the blossoms overflowing with scents inundate the senses, giving a heady happiness.
The mild air makes it possible to celebrate the authentic civil ceremony outdoors even in the morning and to set up a rich outdoor aperitif, with sophisticated themed corners to be customised according to taste and the chosen style. The undisputed protagonists of the preparations will be flowers, in bright colours or in delicate pastel shades. Arches of roses, inlaid gazebos and impalpable fabrics will contribute to creating romantic and fairy-tale suggestions, in perfect harmony with the season. In the event of bad weather, the versatility of the structure allows the ceremony and the entire reception to be moved inside, without affecting the grace and beauty of the wedding.
The summer wedding: brushstrokes of light
In summer, everything is illuminated. The vegetation turns emerald and the wheat fields in the background glow golden. The season is perfect for outdoor receptions, with long imperial tables or elegant circular tables set up under the tree canopy. Skilful lighting effects illuminate the night, recalling the magic of the firmament. Menus can include traditional dishes, enriched with typical summer flavours; innovative formulas such as brunches and picnics on the grass; vegetarian, vegan or farm-to-table menus.
The opportunity to create settings in continuity with natural elements allows you to range from country chic to shabby chic; from boho chic to total white, which favours simple lines and essential geometries.
