Arranging a Wedding in Italy!?!

My fiancee and I are planning to get married this autumn. We're based in Ireland but would like to have the wedding in a small Italian village (somewhere like San Gimignano in Tuscany). We've traveled around Italy quite a bit but we've no idea how to arrange something like this!?! Would appreciate any advice or any ideas about where to go to get advice!

firbolg,

Suggest you put 'weddings' in the search box to get some ideas of what is involved.

One idea in Tuscany could be La Crociona http://www.lacrociona.com/

Fiorella doesn't advertise it but she does wedding receptions for Italian friends. Using the old wine cellar (vaulted ceilings) she can feed about a hundred people. There is a small chapel for the service and apartments for the guests. La Crociona is about 2km from Montalcino, a fifteen minute walk, and overlooks the Val d'Orcia, one of the most beautiful places in Tuscany.

Since there is no information about weddings on the website you will have to e-mail her and 'talk' about it. Fiorella's english is pretty good.

It is ensuring you follow all the legal requirements that is important.

Lots of info on the web (and lots of people happy to help for a fee) but this might start you off

Try googling under <<weddings in Italy law>>

Hi there!

I agree, the burocracy paperwork for foreigners wedding organization is really annoying, and a complete waste of time! But that's a legal requirement... so better delegate...

Take a look at some wonderful villa that are in the venice countryside that are as beautiful as Tuscany one, but much more affordable!

Good luck with your wedding preparation!

As said above it is more about sorting out the legal requirements, finding a church and a priest who will marry you rather than worrying about reception location.

Can't suggest specifics. Assume there are a few companies out there who can arrange things for you (know Malcesine castle is a popular place for brits getting married).

May cost a bit but will at least take some of the stress out of it.

Hopefully you not talking about a Catholic ceremony, which is not as simple.
