When organizing a luxurious destination wedding, it’s crucial to foster connections and create a welcoming environment for all guests. That’s why I always make sure to offer unique and exciting entertainment at my clients’ destination weddings.

Keep in mind that not all of your guests will know each other. This means they may feel uncomfortable or excluded when surrounded by strangers. But don’t worry, that’s where fun and creative activities come in!

From vintage car tours to cooking classes, the possibilities are endless when it comes to organizing entertainments for your guests.

 

Among the multitude of entertainment options available for weddings, it’s not always easy to decide. That’s why I’ll present you with the best entertainment choices from these four splendid regions: Provence, French Riviera, Lake Como, and Amalfi Coast.

Wedding entertainment for your ceremony in Provence

Provence offers an incredible backdrop for your destination wedding. By incorporating local entertainment throughout your wedding stay, you and your guests can fully immerse yourselves in the rustic and charming ambiance of the French countryside.

In Provence, you’ll find stunning properties like Mas des Poiriers, as well as castles like Château d’Estoublon and Château de Tourreau. With their ancestral walls and beautiful gardens, you can accommodate your guests and organize various activities to ensure everyone enjoys every moment leading up to the wedding.

For the food enthusiasts among your guests, plan entertainment centered around local cuisine, such as cooking classes to learn how to prepare traditional Provencal dishes. You can also arrange tastings of the property’s products, including olive oil and local wines. Many estates and castles produce their own wines, olive oils, and fruits. These tastings will be greatly appreciated by wedding guests as they can fully embrace the local culture.

Create an unforgettable experience for your destination wedding in Provence, filled with joy and cherished memories that will last a lifetime.

You can venture away from the estate and explore the region for a day, which will be highly entertaining for you and your guests. Additionally, this getaway will help you clear your mind and release the tensions caused by travel and wedding planning.

To do this, you can organize an accessible hike on the nearby trails for everyone to enjoy. You will quickly find yourself immersed in the countryside, orchards, fields, and forests, allowing you to reconnect with the tranquility of nature.

You can also turn this hike into a horse riding excursion and gallop through the provincial lavender fields.

For an adrenaline rush, arrange a vintage car race with your guests on open roads. The winding paths of Provence will guarantee an exhilarating experience. This entertainment will transport you back in time and add a vintage chic touch to your wedding.

With this activity, your wedding will take you to the heart of the scents of Provence, which your guests can take home with them.
