Plan your wedding in Italy with Cottages to Castles!
Maybe you’ve been waiting for it or maybe it was a total surprise. Congratulations… you are engaged! And after all the toasts, and hugs, and tears, and happiness that come with sharing the wonderful news with your loved ones and friends, it’s time to start planning your wedding!
Some people have been thinking of it since they were little, and for some just thinking about flowers and centrepieces might be a source of anxiety. When planning your wedding, most people become “worriers”: What if it rains? What if Great-Aunt Gertrude starts being inappropriate? What if food is bland? What if people are bored of the typical hotel setting? Many brides get a lot of pressure from family and friends to expand the guest list into distant relatives and to choose details that might not be to their taste. Thankfully, there’s a new trend that’s here to stay (and save your nerves in the process!).
Over 25% of couples are now choosing to celebrate their weddings abroad. They look for better weather (and what isn’t better than British “summer”?), a reduced guest list of only their nearest and dearest, a chance to extend their wedding into a honeymoon without any more travelling, interesting and romantic venues and tasty food their guests will always remember.
When thinking about weddings abroad, Italy sits comfortably on the top three countries where couples decide to organise their special days. Italy’s legal system allows you to make your marriage a reality with a simple procedure and you only need to be in the country a few days before your ceremony (unlike other countries, such as France, Spain and the Caribbean, which require a much lengthier stay). The weather is gorgeous and in most regions there will be not a rain drop in sight throughout your celebrations.
