Finding the Best Wedding Venues in Italy

Getting married in Italy you will find no shortage of beautiful wedding venues and Tuscany definitely has some of the best wedding venues in Italy. Before you start hunting for a wedding venue though, you first need to determine what type of wedding you would like to have. If you want a rustic wedding, then a farmhouse in Tuscany would be the ideal choice. If you want a regal and exclusive wedding, then a castle will suit you well. Or, maybe you want something more modern and elegant, then a grand hotel would be your best choice.

Once you decide on the type of venue, you will have to do some further research to determine which exact venue you want to reserve for your special day and then, of course, there is the Italian wedding reception to consider. If you happen to have a wedding planner Italy, utilize them as much as you can. Have your wedding planner do research to help you find the best venue that suits your tastes and needs.

Of course, it would be my pleasure to put you in touch with the wedding planner I highly recommend and have personally worked with for many years. In addition, I would be happy to work with you or your wedding planner to help find your perfect wedding venue in Italy.

How to Get Married in Italy

Before you book your perfect Tuscan wedding venue though it’s important that you first contact the consulate in Italy if you plan to have your wedding here. They will be able to guide you in terms of the necessary legal documentation and the steps you need to take to get legally married in Italy.

Of course, your Tuscan wedding planner can also help to guide you through this whole process of getting married in Italy if you perfect not to do it yourself. These things in Italy can be taxing, so it’s always a good idea to get the help of someone who knows the process well.

It’s good to know that traditional Roman Catholic ceremonies are legally binding in Italy since they have a civil element already to them. However, if you practice a different religion to make your marriage in Italy official, you will have to first have a civil ceremony followed by your religious celebration.

Finding a Wedding Planner in Italy

It is of the utmost importance to have a wedding planner for your wedding in Italy to go off without a hitch. It would be best to hire a wedding planner of Italian background or better yet, a wedding planner who resides in Italy. They will know what’s best in terms of location, venue, food, decor, flowers, etc., and make your Italian wedding day one that you will never forget.

If you aren’t based in Italy then you can have a Skype interview with your wedding planner to get to know them better, make sure to ask lots of questions. It’s important that you have a wedding planner in Italy who will listen to your ideas and give feedback. They should want to make your dream wedding in Italy a reality. Also, ask to see their portfolio, because nothing speaks louder than a strong track record.

I am Mary Di Lanno, owner of the Real Estate Agency "La Camelia" based near Lucca in Tuscany. I grew up in Montreal, Canada and I speak perfect English and quite good French. After returning to Italy and during my studies at the University of Parma, I studied for 6 months in Germany, where I also learned the German language. After graduating, I worked for several years in the customer service office and marketing department of some large companies in the ceramic sector. About 15 years ago I moved to Lucca together with my husband and last year at the beach in Lido di Camaiore. I have always had the vocation to help find the ideal home for those who come on holiday or those who want to buy it, so when I moved to Lucca in 2004 I opened my real estate agency. I fully understand the various needs of my clients, who often come from different nations and cultural backgrounds. I am convinced that the best service is given by learning to deeply know the tastes and preferences of each person. Each customer is special and unique.
