Nature Trend – Getting Married in the Countryside
For those seeking an alternative wedding location away from the hustle and bustle of the city, a wedding in the countryside is the perfect fit. These days, a wedding in the countryside is characterised by a rustic connection to nature. For this location, it doesn’t matter if the whole celebration is held completely out in the open or perhaps on a farm. Highlight the natural aspect of the location and select regional and local products when choosing the dishes and drinks for your celebration. The best part: you can use materials such as wood, flowers, straw, fabric, and ribbons to decorate your vintage location in an extraordinary fashion. This will not only be cost-effective, but will also produce a romantic atmosphere.

Sparkling Water – Getting Married at the Lake
The lake is an especially extraordinary location for your wedding celebration. Whether enjoying the view of the sparkling water while sipping on your aperitif or taking in the romantic sight of the sun slowly setting behind the mountains and watching the last sunrays glow off the water’s surface – a wedding celebration hosted at the lake will offer guests a very special atmosphere. In order to make the celebration that much more unforgettable, guests have the opportunity to go on strolls along the water’s edge as well as taking a trip around the lake on a boat. These excursions can be organised with the local boat operators and are the perfect way to round off a wedding at the lake.
