Are you one of those brides who always dreamed of having your destination wedding in Italy? It’s such a beautiful and magical place to tie the knot but planning a wedding somewhere you don’t live can be hard. There are a lot of things to take under consideration and today we’ll be sharing some useful tips for planning a destination wedding in Italy:
Hire a Wedding Planner
The first step is to hire a professional wedding planner, preferably someone who is known for planning destination weddings and has done one in Italy before. Trust us, this would make the process so much easier. The planner would act as your guide to ensure you have a stress free and memorable wedding.
Look Into the Legal Procedure
The legal procedure and paperwork for marriage is different in each country, so you need to figure and work this out beforehand. The Italian government has different agreements with each nation, so ask your wedding planner to look into your case and advise the best solution.
Pick the Perfect Location
A lot of couples go for the well-know countries like Rome and Florence. However, we would suggest going for something a bit more different. The most beautiful places in Italy are a little outside the city, so if you want to have an outdoor wedding then that should be your pick. If you do want to get married in the city, opt for luxury hotels.
Find Trustworthy Wedding Vendors
Since you know don’t country, it’s best to find some trustworthy vendors to make your experience easier and better. You can talk to your wedding planner about it or go on the internet and use those research skills. Don’t be afraid to make calls and ask as many questions as you can.
Photography Is Important!
You’re flying off to a new country to get married so photography is 10 times more important now! You want to make sure that everything is captured for you to look back on later in life. Again, use the internet to find wedding photographers in Italy.
Create a Wedding Website
A wedding website will make it easier for your guests to know all the information they need to attend your wedding. It’s also a good way for people to RSVP.
Go For an Off-Season Wedding
Italy is super busy during the months of June, July and August, so do your best not to plan a destination wedding during that time period. When you plan off season, you’ll get cheaper rates from vendors and won’t have to deal with packed streets and booked bars. The best months are November, January and February.
Plan Activities Afterwards
You’re in a new country, so why not make the most of it for you and your guests? Plan some fun after-wedding activities and explore the city.
We hope your destination wedding in Italy is a blast!
