A guide to destination weddings in Italy | Chapter 3 | How to plan an elopement to Italy

November 7, 2018


Is your wedding on a budget but you are not ready to give up on the idea of getting married in Italy?


Well, you are in luck!! Here's a guide to Intimate destination weddings - Eloping to Italy.


But first things first: what is an elopement and why should a couple opt for one? An elopement is when destination weddings and weddings on a budget meet half way. It gives you the chance to have an intimate romantic wedding abroad while at the same time keeping the costs to a minimum.


A tip from us if you decide to elope, make sure you have a nice party at home with friends and families! It doesn't have to be anything huge, just an occasion to let you cheer to the new union together with all the people that are important to you. In this way you'll be sure no one is going to get upset, especially older people that probably wouldn't really understand your choice.


A huge plus of eloping becomes really clear when it comes to choosing your destination.. you don't have to compromise, you can really go crazy and just pick the destination of your dreams without worrying about pleasing everyone, without worrying about uncle Jo being too cold on the peak of a mountain or aunt Mary suffering the heath in southern Italy!


Plan in advance: even if we are talking about a small intimate wedding, make sure you give yourself enough time to plan it and make sure you do not underestimate the paperwork!


And the last tip from the photographer.. it may sound biased, but it's actually a genuine tip! Do not compromise on the pictures and choose a good photographer that most importantly you like. Remember, it will be the only way you will showcase your special intimate wedding and the only way to take you memories back home and show them to your friends and family!
