For all the happy couples planning a wedding at their favorite European destination and looking for ideas to keep their guests entertained throughout the weekend, we recommend creating experiences that highlight the local culture, from a bike tour to a cooking class. Your guests will love the opportunity to be entertained while they also get familiar with their surroundings. Here’s a selection of our favorite activities to experience the region:
Road Trip Adventure in a Convertible
For couples who are tying the knot abroad and searching for a unique guest experience, a full day road trip is the perfect way to unwind after an evening of celebrations. Select an itinerary that best fits the interests of your group and experience the excitement of being on the road. Navigate leisurely from one enchanting site to another in a vintage convertible, combining stop-offs at character-filled villages and scenic viewpoints. Make sure the end of your adventure takes you and your guests to a secluded beach for a barbecue party or for a fun and mouth-watering picnic.
Your Own Private Cooking Class
Having a destination wedding and looking for a way to keep your guests entertained? Treating them to a private cooking class in the comfort of your temporary home is a great way to create long-lasting memories. Wherever your travels take you, make sure your cooking experience starts with a market or foraging tour so you can learn how to source fresh, local and seasonal produce, and finishes with a long lunch accompanied by local wines. And for those who don’t want to cook but still want to learn more about local flavors, have them participate in a food and/or wine tasting tour.
Relax on an e-Bike Tour
If you’re having a destination wedding this summer, a fun way to discover the surroundings with your group is to get on an e-bike tour. Pack some sunscreen, your best hat and sunnies, fetch your bike and helmet from the local rental point and take off. Pedal from village to village at your own pace, enjoy leisurely breaks along the way to take photos and cruise through the scenic roads while taking advantage of the electric assistance.
