Civil or Symbolic ceremony - do you care? Italy
So My fiancé and I are planning a small intimate wedding 20-30 people on the Amalfli coast Ravello where there are rules and restrictions around a civil ceremony.
A lot of the places I love can't perform civil ceremony on site and I think the only place is a church ceremony beforehand. (I love caruso and cimbrone)
My fiancé and I really want an outdoor ceremony as it is very us and don't want it in a church.
I first thought ok this is fine I will have a symbolic ceremony and then make it legal once we are back home (or before we go) plus it is a lot of organisation beforehand
BUT then I just saw someone walk down the isle on TV teary eyed and nervous and I thought to myself I want that, it is such a special moment - I want the emotions of omg this man is going to be my husband, and Im worried that it won't feel the same walking down the isle....I don't want to miss out on that amazing moment
What is everyones thoughts? Does it matter to you if its symbolic or civil? If you have had a symbolic ceremony did you feel nervous and excited on the day? Did it affect your ceremony knowing it wasn't yet legal?
If you had a civil ceremony in Ravello or Amalfi where did you have it? Anyone know of nice places for civil ceremony?
