WEDDING IN ITALY

Your wedding day will be a moment to remember; for many brides and couples, the idea of marriage is more than just signing a piece of paper. It represents the start of a new phase with the person you love, who you choose to spend the rest of your life with. And why not getting married in a place you love rather than the usual hometown wedding. If natural landscapes, mountains, vineyards, and even islands are your thing, perhaps an Italian wedding is right for you.

Italy offers many unique wedding venues and plenty of natural beauty for your intimate or large celebration. We will review some beautiful and astonishing wedding venues, like villas, hotels, and even castles. And I will also provide a hint of information regarding your legal marriage in the "bel paese" along with general recommendations for you to enjoy Italy at its best.

Legal marriage in Italy.

When you choose to tie the knot in a different country than your own, you need to find out which documents are required and if it is possible to get married without having a residence in the country you are visiting. Luckily for you, Italy has a fairly easy process for non-residents; overall, you will need your passport, birth certificate, a document stating there is no legal impediment for you to get married, and a couple of witnesses. All documents must be translated to Italian, and to find out about the exact documents you need, it is better to contact the municipality where you intend to get married.

And if finding your documents, translating, and going to the local authorities seems like a bit too much for you, you can get legally married at home and come to Italy for a symbolic ceremony in which you can exchange vows and have a

meaningful moment without involving the law.
