Check the paperwork for the wedding
If you want a legally recognized marriage in Italy, you will have to check what documents you will have to submit.
The procedure is not the easiest ( but not impossible either), so we recommend that you engage a professional in Italy who can help you.
If you do not feel like getting into the bureaucratic path, you can always opt for a symbolic rite, where everything is much easier and you can handle everything as you like.
Moreover, in Italy you will find experienced celebrants who will make your “Yes I do” a unique moment.

Hosting your guest.
Thinking about the well-being of your guests is your duty so we recommend finding accommodations for them for at least 2 days.
When choosing the venue for the wedding check if within the venue you can also accommodate guests.
Another alternative is to find accommodations for them very close to the wedding venue.
This will not be a big problem, many wedding venues in Italy have the ability to accommodate guests; there are even entire villages that can be booked for a wedding experience immersed in the most authentic Italian style.
Consider other seasons
The favorite season for weddings is summer, followed by spring!
But I’ll give you a super tip…consider other seasons as well.
Italy has a mild climate so even in winter, if you get married by the sea or in the hills of Umbria, cold weather won’t be a problem.
Getting married in seasons like fall and winter will give you so many advantages such as you will have no problem finding the free date you want at the venue for the wedding of your dreams.
You will have all the vendors focused on you because they have less wedding and are less tired and can be even more top than they already would be in the summer season.
Plus budget, off-season weddings cost a little less and you can afford more things for the same amount of money invested (not a bad motivation).
Do the food and wine tasting.
Food and wine trials are provided for the bride and groom to choose the menu.
When you have everything organized, and have a clear idea of what to choose, plan a trip to Italy and come and test everything!
As for the wines, get advice from the sommelier it is wonderful to make a choice that perfectly matches the chosen dishes.
The amazing result will be guaranteed.
Locate an Italian wedding planner.
Last but not least advice is to hire an Italian wedding planner.
We have talked several times in this blog about the extraordinary advantages; first and foremost is her extensive knowledge of the geographical areas and the best suppliers.
You need a trusted person who is your eyes and voice in Italy and above all who looks after your interests.
