Live your Destination Wedding dream with Carnival Masks

This article was written by guest blogger, Justin Angelo Patulli, who is an ItalianCanadian travel industry professional.

Italy has long been a popular wedding destination, especially among Hollywood celebrities. In fact, Venice was chosen by George and Amal Clooney to serve as the backdrop of their memorable celebration. If a destination wedding is something you have always dreamt of, but you don’t have the budget of a VIP, don’t worry! You can still recreate the Venetian atmosphere with Venezia Maschere by La Gioia!

The foundation of this brand has been built on pride and tradition that dates back hundreds of years. These skillful artisans work tirelessly to bring consumers across the world handcrafted masks that evoke the spirit of centuries past. While masks were previously worn exclusively during the Carnival season, they have now become a symbol synonymous with Venice. The unique masks created by this truly talented team are the perfect art piece to embody the Venetian Carnival theme for couples who dream of tying the knot in Venice.

These masks are truly versatile for any wedding celebration. They can be used for everything from matching masks worn by the marrying couple, to a gift given to members of the wedding party or as part of the venue decor. On the other hand, if you have an upcoming wedding to attend, any of these masks would make the perfect gift. They are both unique and memorable and their usage is not limited just to costume, but also as beautiful wall art. So whether you’re purchasing a mask for your own wedding or for one that you will be attending in the near future, do not hesitate to reach out to the team at Venezia Maschere by La Gioia, who will be more than happy to work with you on customizing these beautiful masks!

Another great way to incorporate Venetian Carnival or even to reinforce the essence of a destination wedding without flying your guests to Venice is to gift these masks as wedding favours, or bomboniere, as they are called in Italian. Hospitality is one of the fundamental pillars of Italian culture and the idea of gifting a bomboniera to thank guests for attending your special occasion is a tradition that dates back hundreds of years and has evolved over time. Originally, a sweet treat consisting of sugar-coated almonds, known as confetti, were given to guests as a token of appreciation. But the tradition has evolved to include a decorative object. Rather than gift your guests with another plate or charcuterie set, these masks would be truly unique and really ensure that you’re celebrating the Italian way on your special day.

These were just a few ideas, but I’m certain that any bride, groom or wedding planner could find countless more uses for these fine pieces of art! If the idea of creating a destination wedding at home is something that speaks to you, then look no further and make the choice to shop with Venezia Maschere by La Gioia. They are the clear frontrunner when it comes to ordering Venetian Carnival masks online. This is a brand that ships everywhere and pays special attention to every detail from the minute their masks are created until the day they are delivered to your doorstep. When you buy one of their pieces, you are buying superior quality and supporting authentic Italian artisans, helping to preserve traditions. So if you’re new to the brand, I would like to welcome you and wish you happy shopping!

The choices are endless, so here are just some ideas that may be suitable for a Venetian Wedding theme:
