Starting from this idea in mind, you should be able to narrow down the best options. For example, if you a must have for your wedding experience is a magical alfresco dinner under a starry sky, then late October or April are not the first choice month to consider. You could rather think about the period form mid May to the beginning of September. However, be careful: August is one of the most warm month during Italian summer time. For this reason, I suggest you to consider this month only if you are used to hot sunny days.
