HOW TO GET
MARRIED IN ITALY
AN EASY GUIDE
So you decided to get married in Italy… well, let us tell you: excellent choice! Our country is full of enchanting locations – castles, villas, grand hotels, agriturismi – that will make the perfect venue for your Italian wedding.
After all, if so many people from abroad want to get married in Italy, there must be a reason. But this doesn’t mean that planning your special day will be easy, especially if you live far away. So let us give you some professional tips about how to proceed.
First of all, let’s see which are your main options:
Option 1: Ask a Professional
If you want it easy and decide to arrive on your special day without stress and cares, ask a professional and hire an Italian wedding planner. It’s not only about giving the “dirty work” to someone else. There are many other reasons to choose this option.
First of all, an Italian wedding planner knows which are the steps to undertake, which are the difficulties, and which are the best locations to plan your wedding.
Secondly, a local wedding planner – of course, you should choose an English-speaking wedding planner – won’t only know which are the best wedding venues in Italy. He will also have a privileged channel to book the venue of your dreams, a thing that could be quite hard if your chosen location is extremely popular.
Finally, a professional will take care of your wedding budget from the beginning to the end of the whole planning process, guaranteeing that it won’t ever get out of control.
Option 2: Do It Yourself
The second option to getting married in Italy is… well, doing it all yourself. If you are one of those persons that love to plan his holidays and trips on his own, or if you just want to have total control of the whole wedding down to every detail, then go on.
Just be sure, when you choose your wedding venue and look for the staff and professionals for your wedding, to check if they are reliable, so as to avoid nasty surprises.
GETTING MARRIED IN ITALY STEP BY STEP
THINK ABOUT WHAT YOU WANT
First of all, in order to get married in Italy, you should clear your mind. What kind of wedding would you like? A fancy one, with a lavish buffet? Or maybe something more straightforward and “authentic”?
This decision will “set the tone” for your Italian wedding and, along with the next step, will allow you to understand how to proceed with the planning.
SET YOUR BUDGET
Of course, one thing is what you want, while another is what you can afford. Set your budget before starting to plan your wedding. This way, you won’t have to renounce later to something you had already chosen. And already knowing how much you can or are willing to spend will help you keep your expenses under control.
FIND YOUR ITALIAN WEDDING PLANNER (If You Want One)
If, as we have previously seen, you decided that getting married in Italy is easier with a wedding planner (and trust us, it is!), then you should choose one.
We have already told you: our suggestion is to choose an Italian wedding planner, because he will perfectly know which are the steps to undertake to organise a wedding here in Italy.
But be careful: choose someone who speaks and understands your language, or an English-speaking wedding planner. Otherwise, getting to understand each other will be a nightmare!

FIND AND COORDINATE YOUR STAFF
Maybe the wedding venue that you have chosen already has all the needed staff for your wedding. Otherwise, you should ask someone else to find and coordinate the required professionals for you, or you will have to do it on your own.
Think about every little detail of your wedding, so you will know which and how many workers you will require for your special day: a travel agency, a catering company, a florist, one or more drivers… it really depends on your needs.
