Plan your Wedding in Italy
Wedding Ideas
Discover Italy

preparing for weddingIf you are planning on getting married in Italy then you will be thinking about the best way to go about planning the big day. Getting married abroad means a few changes to the classical wedding planning checklist, so we have pulled one together that is specifically geared towards making organising your wedding in Italy easier.



The wedding Timeline


  • Put together a "wedding folder" for all your contacts, pictures, things that inspire you etc.
  • Decide what wedding style you want.
  • Investigate all of the legal requirements pertinent to your citizenship and make sure you have all documentation required
  • Work out your budget, including air fares, accommodation and other fees.
  • Decide whether you are going to pay in part for your guests or if it will be up to them. Talk to those you want to invite to see how interested they are.
  • Make sure your passports are up to date!
  • Start investigating possible hotels and venues, and create a shortlist.
  • Once you have a shortlist you might want to come out to view the location before booking.
  • Take out the appropriate insurance.
  • Think about what you are going to do for your honeymoon - are you going to stay in Italy?
  • If you are using one, choose and speak to a wedding consultant.
  • Start thinking about wedding dresses.
  • If you want a religious wedding then look into the availability of officials and religious grounds.

Don't forget that last tip, as it is probably the most important one on the list. This is the start of your life as a married couple, so it is important that you make the time to relax and enjoy the experience and each other's company.
Remember, our network of contacts is vast so you will be able to find someone to help you with all possible requests.
