How to plan a destination wedding in Italy

Planning a Destination Wedding in Italy means organizing a wedding in one of the most places around the world!

Romantic landscapes, good food, wine, art, and culture everywhere...

Great experience! But how to plan a Destination Wedding in Italy?

Below some suggestions to start your wedding organization.

The Wedding planner choice is basilar to start the planning

I think it is important to start with an Italian wedding planner, a perfect intermediary between the vendors and you. The wedding planner can suggest the venue according to your style, the vendors, and proposals to organize your wedding dream.

You must think about what it will be the ceremony type

The civil wedding

I suggest booking a venue within 12 months before the wedding date. No more, because Lake Como is a very busy area. It will be essential to have the support of a wedding planner in this situation! An Italian wedding planner knows venues and suppliers and can contract the best solution for you.

Religious wedding

I suggest asking if it is possible to celebrate the religious ceremony. Some Catholic priests do not celebrate the wedding of foreign people. The wedding planner will suggest the places for your Catholic ceremony. Regarding other religions, the Italian government admits some non-Catholic rites (you will have to ask). If it is not admitted you can celebrate a symbolic rite. More information here.

Symbolic rite

The symbolic rite has no legally valid in Italy and in your country. You can get married in your country and symbolize your union through this rite type in a magical set-up...Or after a civil wedding in Italy, for example. I think is the easiest system for getting married in Italy.

After the ceremony a very Italian wedding reception

Italy has different food traditions! These traditions can change according to the season and Italian region. Usually, there will salami or prosciutto types, pasta, and meats or fishes. A good catering will suggest the best solution. At the end of the reception, there will be a cake cutting and amazing almond favors


The venue must be chosen according to your style and wishes... There are in Italy different scenarios for your wedding. For example, villas, farmhouses, castles, etc... Every region has typical areas, foods, and wines. Italy has different experiences like the sea, mountains, lakes, etc.
