Wedding in Florence


Has anyone got married or planning to get married in Florence. We have just got engaged so are starting out on the whole excitment of planning at the moment but just don't know where to begin!

We would prefer to get married either in florence or close by so that it's easier for our guests to sort our accommodation.

Ideally we want to be able to make the most of the (fingers crossed) sunny weather and have the reception outside.

What's anyone else doing? Any help, ideas, suggestions would be great.

    Well, the first things you should focus on is what type of wedding you would like (religious or civil), how many guests you are inviting, what sort of atmosphere you have in mind..

    With this info you can surely start searching the best venue!

    Hi merlin77uk!

    Another thing that I would look into asap is whether you require any certified translations for getting married in Florence (the best people to advise you on this are your travel agent or the hotel where you wish to get married).

    TLC UK is a company specialised in the translation and legalisation of documents for weddings abroad and can help you out!

    Enjoy the planning!

  • My advice would always be, plan for an outside wedding, of course you want the wonderful Italian sun to shine on you, but do make sure there is a plan B all set up in case the weather is not being kind that day. Many venues will happily let you book their outside space without making allowances in the case this isn't possible.

    Good luck with your search.

    Unless you speak/write Italian, then you will need to hire a good wedding planner. They will act as translator on the day for you too (a legal requirement in Italy for foreigners).

    I got married in neighbouring Umbria last June and it was the best day of my life - you will have a wonderful time in Florence! x
