And now, here are the 8 most important things to consider before planning your destination wedding in Italy!
1. Clearly define the starting idea.
What kind of marriage do you want? It is the question of questions, but that is where you need to start.Where to get inspiration? On our site, of course, but also on many social networks. For example, Pinterest and Instagram. Defining the concept around which the whole wedding will revolve will help you choose the location first. For example, if you want a beach-themed wedding, Milan is certainly not the right option. Keep looking until you find what fully satisfies you!
2. Inform about the wedding place.
Knowing the climate of the place you have chosen for your most beautiful day, and reading the latest news, is a good rule. This will help you be safe from unpleasant surprises!
3. Entrusted to a local wedding planner.
As experienced professionals, we can only recommend particular attention to this point. A wedding planner is what it takes to ensure a perfect organization, care of every detail, rigorous planning of every event of which a wedding is made up. The advice is to always choose local wedding planners. They certainly know the area, the locals and the suppliers, which will save you time, money and stress! For your wedding in Abruzzo, you can count on us!
4. Define the number of guests.
Before you start planning your wedding in Italy, make sure you have a clear idea of how many guests you will be inviting.This decision can guide you in choosing the location where to celebrate the event or hold the reception, not to mention the accommodation of the guests. Keep in mind that there is always the possibility that not all the people you invite will be able to travel abroad, so make sure you have no problems with a smaller list of guests than expected.
5. Planning to visit the location at least once before the wedding.
One should never be bought in a closed box, especially if it is the organization of the most important day of life.The advice we give you is not to rely only on websites and reviews, but to visit the location chosen. In this way you can personally see the characteristics of the place, its beauty, the comfort, the accessibility.You can also test the food and meet the suppliers.
6. Planning the travel expenses.
Celebrating one’s marriage abroad means a lot of baggage. Planning the composition of your suitcase, with the clothes and other items you will need for the duration of your marriage, will help you keep track of what you will really need, avoiding carrying unnecessary items.
7. Inform yourself about the necessary documentation.

We left it for last, but not least! Always listen to your heart, especially when it comes to planning your wedding.Taking into consideration the advice of family and friends is fine, trusting the chosen professional is fine, but in the end it is important that things are right for you, that they warm just your heart.
