 September 2023: 

After 20 years of wedding planning around the world I have retired from the wedding industry to live my happily ever after in Italy with my husband and to focus on being a full-time author. 

My colleagues who I refer enquiries to, are fully booked for 2024 and 2025. 

I wish you the best of luck with your wedding plans and future together.

Answers to Questions You May Have About Weddings In Italy

How much does a wedding in Italy cost?
As you can imagine this is like asking how long is a piece of string! However, here’s a way to get a rough estimate for a wedding in an agriturismo: Estimate their number of guests and multiply it by 200. Then add 6000. This will give you an estimate for your wedding ceremony, reception and the services couples usually book such as music, transportation, photography and flowers.

So for 100 guests you can estimate 100×200 = 20000 plus 6000 = 26,000 euro

However, venues vary greatly in how much they charge for menus, rental, etc. and service providers vary greatly in price too so your wedding could cost less or more than this.

What wedding services do you offer?
Rosie The Wedding Planner is a wedding planning company that offers a full destination wedding planning service. We have been in business over 17 years and we now focus exclusively on weddings in Italy and Indian weddings in Ireland. However, Rosie has trained and mentored wedding planning for the past 8 years and now has a network of planners throughout the world who are running their own successful wedding planning businesses whom she can refer you on to for other destinations such as New York, Ireland, France, Dubai, Mauritius, Germany, UK and Spain.

What do wedding planners charge?
In general, wedding planners usually charge about 10% of your wedding budget.

We offer both tailored packages and bespoke wedding planning. For tailored packages the price of wedding planning is built in to the basic package and is about €1500 plus any additional staff we may need on the day depending on the size of your wedding.

Bespoke planning costs €3,000 approx depending on the location and the planning needed.

What are the best months for weddings in Italy?
May, June and September and up to mid October are great months as the temperatures are usually not too high.

July is a good month too but tends to be more expensive and gets quite hot.

I don’t recommend August, temperatures can get very hot and it’s also the month when most Italians go on holiday so it is often difficult to book services and venues. It’s also more expensive.

April and October are changable, you could be lucky and have great weather or you could get bad weather. I generally recommend from mid April to mid October (excluding August) for weddings in Italy.

What wedding ceremonies are available in Italy?

Symbolic Wedding Ceremonies

Symbolic wedding ceremonies can be very romantic ceremonies performed indoors or outdoors. There are trained professionals who can work with you to create a beautiful, romantic, meaningful ceremony but you can also get a friend or family member to perform the ceremony if you prefer. Symbolic ceremonies do not have any legal standing so it is up to the couple to consider attending this before or after their return from Italy.

Civil Wedding Ceremonies in Italy

Civil wedding ceremonies in Italy need to be performed by the Lord Mayor or their elected person. These ceremonies usually need to take place in the town hall which are often beautiful historic buildings which are very pretty. There are some outdoor locations in Italy that can perform civil ceremonies but not many. This is why a lot of couples who have their hearts set on an outdoor wedding ceremony in Italy, choose to do the legal side at home and do a romantic symbolic ceremony in Italy. Paperwork required for civil ceremonies in Italy varies depending on your nationality and circumstances.

Religious Wedding Ceremonies in Italy

Catholic wedding ceremonies are the most common religious ceremonies in Italy and are legally binding, we can advise you on the paperwork required, etc. Italian towns and villages have amazing Catholic churches and most parishes allow destination weddings but some do not (it is at the discretion of the Bishop). Sourcing an english speaking priest is also a challenge we can help with when we are doing the planning of your wedding.

Many historic venues have a chapel on the estate, however it is important to understand that these were built for family use only so they are often small and not attached to a parish so it is often not possible to have a legally binding wedding ceremony in them.

Other Christian faiths are not so common in Italy and it can be challenging to find celebrants to perform the ceremony, the best advice would be to bring your own minister.

Italy is becoming increasing popular for Indian weddings (we love planning them!) and we know a lot of the vendors required for planning the perfect Indian wedding.

Jewish ceremonies and events are also very doable in Italy.

What is the difference between a Bespoke and Package Wedding Plan?
A tailored wedding package is most suitable for those who want to keep their planning as simple and easy as possible. They are also suitable for those on a fixed budget or who do not have time to dedicate to planning their wedding. We offer plans which include all the basics needed such as catering, venue, planning and some services. The prices in the plan will be fixed at the time of booking so the couple have the comfort of knowing exactly how much the services booked in the plan will cost. The

A tailored plan is tailored to your wedding such as guest numbers and it is possible to add other services required but ofcourse this will increase the price of your wedding. If you cancel services out of the plan you will not get the full value as many of the services included are special offer prices offered to us by service providers for a fixed number of weddings each year. So Tailored wedding packages are better value than Bespoke wedding plans.

Bespoke plans are ideal for those who want to be very involved in the planning and logistics of their wedding and who have specific ideas or of what they want and are less restricted with their budget.
