If you are about to choose where to get married in Italy, you should first ask yourself: what do I want from my Italian wedding? Am I dreaming of something straight out from a fairytale, with a castle, a lavish buffet, and so on? Do I prefer a fancy wedding, but a little more “up to date”? Or maybe something more “authentic”, where the focus is eating and drinking well, staying with relatives and friends, and just having a good time?
Answering this question should give you a huge hint about your choice. You may know if a castle makes the perfect location for your wedding, or maybe a villa or a grand hotel, or on the contrary a country abbey or an agriturismo.
Once you have decided on the type of location you would like for your wedding, you still have to choose the actual venue. This could be quite complicated if you don’t already know specific places, especially if you don’t live in Italy, and you don’t have the chance to easily explore your options.
Moreover, once you have chosen your wedding venue, you still have to contact the owners and book it in advance. This also could be a problem, since the most charming locations are also the most requested. The risk is to discover that the venue of your dreams is already booked and that the waiting list is incredibly long.
Our suggestion, and we don’t say it just because planning weddings in Italy is our job, is to ask a professional. This way, your wedding planner will already give you a selected list of amazing locations, avoiding the risk of nasty surprises. And, once you’ve made your choice, will guarantee you a privileged channel to book your wedding venue.
