Many years ago a destination wedding in Italy on a budget was a way to combine both a stylish wedding ceremony and the honeymoon at a lower cost than a wedding at home.
Then the wedding planner stepped in and started charging fees for planning a wedding and the cost of getting married in Italy spiralled and threatened to take the shine off the style and romance.
It’s a sad world when the real cost of romantic weddings in Italy are artifically inflated by wedding planning costs. But, if you want the glamour of a dream Italian wedding with fine food an,d wine, in a wonderfully atmospheric setting without breaking the bank, then sit back and read on.
Getting Married in Italy?
Choosing your destination wedding location
However, unlike Tuscany weddings and other wedding venues in Italy in Venice, Rome, Florence, Positano, or even Lake Garda or Como, here in Le Marche Italy we have the bucolic landscape, the warm medieval glow of fortified hilltop villages at sunset, but none of the inflated prices.
Happy couples considering getting married in Italy are obviously concerned that a romantic destination wedding in Italy will come with a high price tag. Just look on Google and a common search is “wedding in Italy cost” or “weddings in Italy cost” but our Italy wedding venues been proving that things don’t have to be that way.
Do it Yourself! Why use a destination wedding packages or destination wedding planner?
We have hosted a number of couples who dreamt of wedding in Italy and had researched all of the best places to get married in Italy. They found that wedding packages in Italy or hiring a wedding planner in Italy were charging them excessive sums due to them not having local contacts and not knowing how to get married in Italy.
So we have stepped in and are now helping you to cut out the middle man. If you are looking for exclusive Italy weddings, but want to avoid traditional Italian wedding destinations and to find the real Italy.
If you want a lower cost but still want a distinctive Italian wedding then you should choose Villa San Raffaello. Our large Villa Rental, with its extensive gardens, vineyards and big pool, has been consistently rated excellent on trip advisor.
Sarnano; one the best places to get married in Italy
If you choose our Italian wedding villa for your Italy destination wedding then we will help put you in touch with all of the best local Italian wedding services.
You can even contact couples that celebrated their marriages with us and they’ll tell you that Sarnano in Le Marche, named one of Italy’s most beautiful villages, is one of the best places to get married in Italy. I don’t know if they have married in other places as well, but they just can’t believe there’s a better place!
Italian wedding flowers and Music
We have built up a network of fantastic Italian wedding photographers and have some serious local cake-makers and bakeries who offer a range of great wedding ideas.
In Sarnano itself we have a number of fioraii or florists, who are used to arranging wedding flowers & brides bouquets. And if you want wedding musicians to play wedding songs or music for the wedding ceremony or at the celebration banquet or party then we can help.
The Italian Wedding meal, drinks and pampering
The Italian wedding meal can be arranged using top of the range caterers at the Villa, or alternatively at one of the great local restaurants.
We can also arrange aperitivi, drinks and canapes at a bar in the Centro Storico before or after the marriage ceremony. Sarnano has a Spa and a number of excellent hairdressers if you need to arrange a bit of pampering or that special hair for your marriage in Italy.
The Italian wedding venue
The actual marriage ceremony takes place in a historic location in the medieval centre of Sarnano and depends upon budget and party size. Most small weddings use the vaulted wedding room of the Comune and larger parties can make use of the wonderful Baroque Theatre.
Keeping it local keeps the prices down
We don’t want to be called a wedding coordinator, wedding planner, or, wedding consultant, we just want to provide you with a range of competitive options for all of the wedding components and let you select the one that suits you and your budget. Oh and you will find that local prices are far lower than you would find in any of the traditional wedding venues in Italy
