Frequently asked questions to Marry me in Italy

faqs about weddings in italy

A wedding requires precision, experience and above all good contacts!

For a wedding you need time to keep an eye on the small elaborate details, the bridal couples often do not have this time. Don’t worry, even if you decide to plan it all, it’s still your wedding! I just help you with realizing your dreams.

For sure, this is one of the most difficult points for a wedding couple so I would like to assist you also with this!

There is no general answer to the question of what the costs of a wedding are. Every wedding is individual according to the wishes of the bride and groom. There are many different details that affect the costs.

Think about which areas of your wedding are particularly important to you. Good planning is a great way to save money and control the costs of your wedding. In my blog I have addressed this topic in great detail.

The costs depend entirely on you, your dreams and your ideas! And of course, on how much you want to invest in your big day. Because only you know your account balance and only you can decide, how much you want to spend on your dream wedding in Italy. My job is to help you to precisely work out different options and with your ideas and my experience, we will tailor your dream wedding together.

My fee is not based on your budget, but always on the performance needed! The costs for Marry me in Italy depend on the scope of our services to you. We are happy to take over the complete planning and organization of your dream wedding. Otherwise we only offer you coaching or just advice. Simply arrange an initial non-binding consultation with us to find out which solution is best for you! We are here for you!

In order to guarantee you absolute transparency, you will pay each provider directly. You will receive all payment terms and details from me, but the payment will be always done diretley from you to the providers! 

As a wedding planner agency we are happy to support in advising you on your dream holiday, but unfortunately we are not allowed to book any trips as we are not a tour operator. But of course we also have contacts to a reliable travel agency that will be happy to support and assist you!

No! If Marry me in Italy can take over the entire organization of your wedding day, we will be on place for you in assisting you and your guests the whole day! We will be always in the backround to supervise everything.

With us you can enjoy your wedding without having to think about anything.

Then of course I won’t leave you out in the rain! Together with you, your guests, the booked providers and me, we will set a new wedding date and simply extend the anticipation a bit 😉 No problem!

In any case! The earlier you plan your wedding, the more choices you will have. We still have a lot of leeway for the negotiations, the planning is less stressful and the anticipation longer! Since nobody knows what’s coming, let yourself be guided by a positive goal! And if we see months before the wedding that there are problems, we will tackle them together. I promise I will always be there for you in any situation!

Documents needed for your wedding in Italy

civil and church wedding

I will take over the planning of your civil or church wedding, a symbolic or free wedding ceremony or a simple blessing. I will help you to prepare all the required documents. Our service includes the complete handling of the bureaucratic formalities so that your marriage can also be recognized effortlessly at home. Here you will find a list of all the documents required for a legally effective marriage in Italy.

Civil marriage

In order for your marriage to be legally recognized in Germany, you need the following documents:

  • Valid identity card or passport with a period of validity of at least 6 months
  • International birth certificate, which you can obtain from the registration office of your place of birth
  • International Certificate of Eligibility for Marriage: You can obtain the certificate of ability to marry at the registry office of your permanent place of residence. We advise you to contact the registry office as soon as possible in order to be informed of the exact documents you need to present there. Usually both fiancés will ask: Residence certificate from the registration office stating marital status, place of residence and nationality, certified copy or excerpt from the family book, certified photocopy of an official ID
  • If widowed, the death certificate


Please keep in mind that for women who are divorced, the year of separation is taken very seriously in Italy. The same also applies to divorces. A woman may not remarry unless at least 300 days have passed. For these cases we need a special confirmation from the German embassy.

I am of course happy to answer any questions you may have in this regard. Feel free to call me without obligation!

Church wedding

If you only want to get married in a church in Italy, you must have already been married in a civil ceremony in your home country. Or you decide for the civil and church wedding in Italy. Catholic weddings can only be celebrated in sacred places. For purely Catholic couples, it is possible to plan the church and civil wedding at the same time. We can also arrange Protestant and Anglican weddings at a location of your choice.
You need the following documents for the church wedding:

  • Marriage certificate already available from the registry office in your home town or at least the registration for the civil marriage with the date
  • Valid passport or ID card and indication of the valid place of residence
  • Certificate of Baptism and Confirmation
  • Confirmation of the marriage preparation course from the home parish
  • Transfer for marriage abroad (Litterae dimissoriae)


All documents are translated into Italian and certified by us, so that a smooth process is guaranteed.

You can find contact to the German Church Community in Rome by following this link.
