You can contact them directly via the forms that can be found with the location descriptions on the website.
Can you contact suppliers for me - can I organise the whole wedding through you?
Of course! Our vision is to make the whole experience of getting married in Italy as stress-free as possible, so anything we can do to help is our pleasure.
I would like to plan my wedding but don’t know where to start! Are there steps to work through?
How long before my wedding should I start planning?
Essentially, as long as you can. It is possible to organise a wedding in three months, but it is very stressful and difficult to do. we at DreamWedding recommend that you start planning at least a year in advance, if possible.
Can you help me to calculate my budget?
Only you can know how much you want to spend overall, but we can help you to get the most from your money.
What are the legal implications of getting married in Italy?
Italy is one of the easiest countries in the world for a couple coming from overseas to have a globally recognised legal marriage. There are no residency requirements as there are for France, although the certification required varies depending on your country of origin.

Do I need to come out to Italy before the wedding to do anything?
We strongly recommend that you come out to Italy before the wedding to choose a venue and meet with your suppliers. This will ensure that your day is exactly how you imagined it, and not someone else's vision. Dream Wedding can help you to organise this trip and help you while you are here, providing everything from expert advice and contacts to an interpreter for meetings with suppliers.
