The Ultimate Wedding Guide for getting married in Italy

MakeloveinItaly is the Ultimate Wedding Guide for getting married in Italy and inform married couples-to-be on how to plan the Perfect Wedding in Italy.

We are Giulia and Laurent. Giulia is Italian and Laurent is Dutch.

We live in the Netherlands. We got married in May 2009. Needless to say, we picked Rome, my home city, as our destination wedding.

After tying the knot in a fairy-tale Church (Sant’Alessio all’ Aventino) set on one of the seven panoramic hills of Rome (Aventino hill, watch our short wedding video to get a glimpse of the church and venue atmospheric roman setting), we held our wedding reception in Trevignano-Romano.

Trevignano is a lovely lake town at 20 km from Rome. This stunning hill-top venue has breath-taking views over Bracciano Lake that turned us all on our heads!

Don’t get me wrong, the whole process didn’t go so smoothly as you might guess. While not doubting a sec that our destination wedding would be Italy, we struggled at times to sort all things out from abroad.

The thing is that when you try to arrange a 170-guest wedding from abroad, stress goes off the chart.

And now you’ll be possibly wondering why Italy.


After traveling for a long time across the world during our young carefree age, we’ve found out that Italy besides being the most beautiful country in the world, offers the largest variety of highlights and sites suited for all ages and tastes.

In short, Italy is the ideal destination for all couples wishing to leave a dream wedding experience, without spending a fortune!

Get inspired by the countless off-the-beaten information on today’s less tourist Italian regions and provinces, but no inferior to any others.

Add the outstanding coastline area of Cilento to your wedding list of destinations. Cilento is certainly less exclusive and pricey than its neighboring Amalfi coast while being absolutely equal in value.

Consider marrying on the coastal strip of Maremma valley, or in its inner land, rather than in the more exclusive and pricey Chianti valley or in the tourist crowded city of Florence.

Why not picking medieval hill-top villages in Marche or Umbria regions, rather than choosing a castle or lavish villa in Siena, ranking among the most tourist provinces?

Sardinia is scattered with countless impressive off-the-beaten tourist tracks (Nuoro, Ogliastra, Oristano, Carbonia-Iglesias…) and more affordable coastal strips where you could consider honeymoon.

They are certainly a valid alternative setting to the more exclusive seaside resort of Costa Smeralda.

Not to mention the endless and varied opportunities to plunging into the authentic regional cultures of Italy thanks to the numerous local organizations providing cooking classes, wine, and food tasting tours, art city tours, nature and adventure activities and many more.

This and much more on MakeloveinItaly.
