The important costs for a destination wedding in Italy


Italy is surely one of the best wedding destinations in the world and if you have been just one time, you can easily understand the reasons why this is one of the top choices.

History, good food, traditions, different panoramas are only a few reasons that make Italy the perfect wedding destination. I am sure you are curious to know the total budget for a wedding in Italy.


Well, this depends of course on the destination and number of guests, typology of the ceremony, kind of setting, and season. From my experience, I can confirm that Como lake, the Amalfi coast, artistic cities such as Venice or Rome are the most expensive. A budget is something very important to decide, especially for a destination wedding.


Of course, it all depends on what you are really looking for as we have a different choice of suppliers that can match your budget for a wedding in Italy.



The budget for the most requested region of Italy: Tuscany

If I have to prepare a general wedding budget, I would consider Tuscany as this is one of the most requested wedding destinations in Italy, especially for a good correlation between quality and price. With a group of 50 people, the average price is around Euro 10.000 – 12.000 including:

  • Space for the ceremony
  • catering with a wedding menu of 4 courses and wedding cake
  • basic flowers arrangement
  • photo service
  • Dj for the after-dinner party

Here you have some examples of venues in this range of wedding budget:

Why does the wedding planner need to know the budget dedicated to your wedding in Italy?


Of course, all the costs for a wedding in Italy vary according to the number of guests and your preferences in terms of style and setup. I understand that it is difficult to plan a wedding, especially if you are so far and for this reason, it is important to choose the right person to guide you during the selection of the right destination and Italian wedding venue keeping always an eye on the budget dedicated for the wedding.

This is the reason why during the wedding planning, we always send an updated wedding budget to our couples in order to have everything under control and adjust costs according to the final budget.

What happens if you are only two or with few guests for a romantic elopement in Italy? We can arrange exactly what you want as we have wedding planning packages dedicated to that. Just visit the following page: Wedding for-two



Of course, we prefer to customize every single package but we offer a good choice of wedding planning packages that will guide you in the right direction. We can share with you some prices but due to the nature of the event that we always personalize according to the preferences of the couple, we prefer first meeting our clients and after that, send an estimate of costs. From your side, I understand that costs are your priority since a destination wedding has an impact on family finance.


It is part of my job to make all the things clear from the very beginning and direct contact is the perfect solution. After years of experience planning weddings and events, I have tested that a meeting via Skype or WhatsApp is very useful especially for couples to understand many details in terms of destination, budget, and steps to do for a wedding in Italy, and not less important, to build a good relationship with who has so important role for this Day.
