Answers to Questions You May Have About Weddings In Italy
How much does a wedding in Italy cost?
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?
For weddings in Italy we help you source the right wedding venue that suits the style of wedding you want and then we source the wedding services you need, such as catering, transport, musicians, flowers and decor plus we help you with any legal paperwork required. We are there on the day to ensure your wedding day goes without a hitch.

What do wedding planners charge?
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?
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 are the steps to take to planning a wedding in Italy?
Do you only do weddings in Italy?
Do you offer on the day wedding co-ordination 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 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.
