Marriage Requirements in Italy
In a romantic setting like Italy, there's no better place to say I do! To tie the knot, both US and CA citizens must meet specific requirements, such as providing valid passports, birth certificates, and declarations of intent to marry, and all documents must be translated to Italian. US citizens need a nulla osta (sworn statement stating that there are no legal impediments to the marriage), while CA citizens require an affidavit of single status.
Wedding Packages in Italy
Italy wedding packages are extremely unique and are catered to fit your wedding vision. Some of the general wedding essentials in these packages include, venue rental, legal paperwork assistance, on-site wedding coordinator, officiant, ceremony, flowers, decor, photography/videography, music, reception dinner, wedding cake, accommodations and transportation.
US and CA citizens must have a valid passport, which must have at least three months of validity beyond your stay. Starting in 2024, U.S citizens will need to apply for authorization through the European Travel Information and Authorization System (ETIAS) before traveling to Europe. Check with your Certified Destination Wedding Specialist for details.
Italian is the official language in Italy, but English is widely used and understood in Italy, especially in major cities and tourist areas.
Currency & Tipping
The official currency is the Euro. The US dollar may be accepted as a form of payment in tourist areas. Tipping is not required, but is appreciated for good service.

Things to Consider when Planning a Wedding in Italy
Saying I do surrounded by enchanting scenery in Italy sounds like the ultimate wedding dream, but it does come with some challenges:
- Hotels in Italy are EP (European Plan), which typically means the quoted rate only covers the cost of the room itself, so your meals and drinks will be an additional cost.
- The flights to Italy are longer and more expensive from most US and CA vacations.
- Wedding packages in Italy are not all-inclusive, so you'll have to hire each vendor individually (i.e. florist, wedding planner, caterer, photographer, etc.)
- The overall cost of a destination wedding in Italy will more than likely be much more expensive than a destination wedding in Mexico or the Caribbean.
