A European wedding could mean so many things. It could mean beaches and surf, mountains and fields, or snow and waterfalls. A wedding in Europe could be one of the most memorable things you’ll ever be a part of. Of course, each country has its season and you might not always know when and where to go. Well, to get you inspired, here is some information on some of the most incredible wedding locations in Europe:

Italy

An Italian wedding is wonderfully fairy tale. Lots of people have their weddings in the antique churches, in the hills or amongst the olive groves and vineyards. To secure an Italian that’s guaranteed to be beautiful the best time to go would be between September and October. The summers in Italy can be scorching and there tend to be quite a few tourists around if you had hoped to marry in one of the towns or cities. In mid-September the temperatures have just dropped and the evenings can be cool by the days still warm. The colours around this time of year in the rural parts of Italy are beautiful and a lot more vivid than they might be in the summer when the sun bleaches the foliage. If you decide to have more of an Autumn Italian wedding you can get some stunning views around the countryside. Here you’ll find the perfect setting for a rustic wedding.

France

France is known to be one of the most romantic countries in the world, and the great thing about France is that most of the tourism is contained to northern France. This means that if you’re looking for a beautiful French wedding you’ll find the sunflower fields, medieval churches and sleepy towns of southern France almost empty, especially around May or Jun. These months of the year are the best times for a wedding because summer is just beginning and the temperatures are on the rise. You’ll find it pleasantly warm and the flowers all in bloom without it being stiflingly hot. Although October and November are also good times to visit France you might be ambushed by autumn rain if you’re not careful. So, if you’re a romantic that dreams of a French kiss in the rain, this is the perfect time of year for you.

Iceland

Why not view a more unconventional wedding destination? It’s not very common for couples to elope to Iceland, but that doesn’t mean that the island doesn’t have a lot to offer. Rather than beaches and green hills, a Nordic wedding in the snow might be perfect for you. If you’re brave enough to bear the cold, you can walk down an aisle covered in snow next to the Seljalandsfoss Waterfall in December or January. However, you best avoid the beaches and coastlines around this time of year because the waves can be very impressive. The 10 foot waves you’d see along Vic Beach can be incredible, but an EHIC card will definitely be a necessity if you intend to view them. Or, if you prefer a bit more daylight and greenery, April is one of the best times of year to see all of the natural wonders of Iceland. The roads are all clear and accessible, there are very few tourists, the temperatures are significantly higher and you’ll hopefully be able to see the Northern Lights without being rained on, although the rain would certainly make a great story.
