Italian wedding customs
Cath, Mike and the Trevi fountain.

When we were married in Italy, we wanted to incorporate as many Italian wedding traditions as we could into our ceremony.

So we did our homework. We spent ages researching the history of wedding traditions - not just Italian but global customs and traditions - and discovered that most of them came from ancient Roman weddings.

We learned how modern Italian weddings are conducted, and what wedding customs are used every day.

We talked to Italian friends of ours including a wedding planner in Italy to make sure we’d got it right.  And finally, we had an unforgettable wedding day.

How to share our knowledge of Italian wedding traditions?

And then we realised that lots of people want to get married in Italy, but not everyone can. There are lots of people around the world who have Italian roots and want to blend some of that Italian genealogy into their wedding. Maybe you’re one of them.

So we wrote some web pages about Italian engagement culture traditions through to ancient Roman food and how it affects Italian wedding receptions.

But we know people still have questions. So this is your chance to have all your questions about Italian wedding customs answered. If we don’t know the answer immediately, we have contacts in Italy who will!

And, if you have something to add that will help other brides, feel free to post your own comments - and photos - here too!
