Foreign marrieges increase by 25% in Italy

Almost 25% of weddings are on destination and they are increasing every year. Italy can be the right destination for you because...It’s one of the most romantic countrys in the world!!!!!

Its' the right way to combine the best of ceremony and honeymoon. It is fun and relaxing, romantic and intimate and cost effective if you follow some simple rules...



1. Define a budget one year in advance which includes travel and your arrival at least 4 days before the wedding. When done, start booking your flights and remember: if you opt for a group packege, you get a better deal.

2. Send out Save the date cards: guests will have to plan their travel budgets and get a passport if they don’t  have one.

3. Hire a Wedding Planner and start the process for legal requirements because here it’s one of the most important points: if one document is missing, the ceremony will be delayed or worse, will not take place, no matter if your guests are waiting!!!

4. Explore local tradition: having some destination touch in your wedding will make it "yours".
Italy is plenty of them!!!

And among other pros, consider that you don’t have to invite 200 guests (that you will definitely have in a local wedding).
Although Etiquette says that bride and groom shall pay for the hotel rooms, food and most of the guests' expenses, in my experience most guests pay for their own travel and accommodation expenses and bride and groom provide for welcome dinner, the party and farewell brunch, together with some fun activity during the stay.
