Getting Married in Italy

Italy is the most idyllic and enchanting country for a wedding. 
Period.

Can you really compare Italy to Mexico or the Caribbean? No. They’re so different. Italy is better. 1000 times over! For one reason, Italy is safe and doesn’t have hurricanes. All the more reason to get married in Italy.  

Italy is home to castles, villas, beaches, and more. In Italy, you will experience the generosity of its people, the fabulous cuisine, and a storied past.

Have we convinced you to at least consider getting married in Italy? Are you a modern individual who wants a wedding that is memorable and beyond your imagination? If so, read on and see why our clients have hired us.  

Why should I get married in Italy?

01

Wedding planning is stressful. 

Did you know that many engaged couples consider eloping because they find wedding planning stressful? Now imagine that stress multiplied if you are planning a destination wedding in a foreign country, where English is not the dominant language!

 That’s why brides and grooms-to-be hire Riveting Trips to arrange a luxury Italian wedding beyond their dreams.

Do you want to get married in Italy?

Why should you hire me?

05

We know the best regions and locations for your dream wedding in Italy.

Italy has 20 distinct regions to consider for your upcoming nuptials. Have you been dreaming of a wedding in Tuscany? Rome? Or the romance capital of Venice? Are you an Italophile and know exactly where you want to get married? Perfect. Or have you never been to Italy and find the fairy-tale wedding romance enticing?

Contact us and let us know where and when you want to get married.

03

We negotiate rates for you.

We help engaged couples negotiate the best rates with the hotels and vendors so you can spend the rest of your budget on your honeymoon — in Italy, of course.

 Because we have established personal relationships, our partners help ensure that your wedding day goes smoothly. 

04

We have the logistics covered.

Do you need a Roman Catholic religious or civil ceremony? Do you know the different rules of who can get married where in Italy?

 We will ensure that you have the proper documentation before you get married in Italy. 

02

We have the connections.

If you’re planning on a destination wedding in Italy, you’ll need to work with local vendors (unless you’re planning on bringing your photographer over).

 Our wedding planning team at Riveting Trips will help you locate the best local Italian wedding vendors for your magical day.

Kind Words from Clients

"I would like to thank you for a fabulous, well-planned trip we had last 2 weeks. We had fun, good lodgings and meals, learning experiences and a wondering bonding time together. It would have not turned out that well if it had not been for you. I can ask you to plan my next trip anytime."

Tracy & Andrew

Traveled to Peru & Bolivia

"Jeanie helped us plan a trip to Italy. Not only did she know the language, she immersed herself in the history and culture. She knows the BEST outdoor restaurants, where we got to enjoy the scenic views. She also shared her advice on how to travel smart and safe."

Suzie

Traveled to Italy

"My trip to Italy was one of a lifetime! Jeanie at Riveting Trips made it all possible!! Jeanie nailed the locations of my hotels and the quality was excellent based the budget I provided. The itinerary provided by Riveting Trips was detailed, easy to follow (especially since it was my first time to Italy), and a life saver. Make sure you have a plan before you travel to Italy!! No one better to assist with your plan than Jeanie at Riveting Trips!!!"

Jack P.

Traveled to Italy

"Jeanie was super helpful in planning extra special things to see on our recent trip to Rome and Florence. She's connected with wonderful tour operators, and knew loads of little off the beaten path spots. She listened to what we wanted to see and stayed on our budget, always a plus. Highly recommend her."

CJ

Traveled to Rome & Florence, Italy

"Jeanie helped craft a fabulous Roman itinerary for my sister and I. Not only did she take the time to get to know what types of things we like to do on vacation, she did some very thorough research to provide personalized recommendations–and her enthusiasm and love of travel and travel planning showed. It almost felt as though I was planning a trip with my bff. She provided great information and tidbits about those “off the beaten path” wanderings. There were times that we found ourselves hanging amongst the locals instead of the tourists and it gave us a different, richer perspective of the city."

Aileen

Traveled to Rome, Italy

"Working with Jeanie has been so easy and seamless. She really listens to our dreams. I was so stressed about finding the right person to help me plan my wedding in Italy. She is making everything super pain-free and I feel like she cares about our wedding as if it were her own. 🙂 I would totally recommend her services. She's presented us with different venues and has educated us about the differences in getting married in Italy."

Sarah T

Traveled to Italy

"As an executive at a Fortune 5 company, I don't have a lot of time to travel, much less arrange my travel. I contacted Riveting Trips for a last minute vacation to Paris and London. Jeanie's extensive travel experience and knowledge clearly added value that I wouldn't have been able to obtain any other way. She was able to share options that were not publicly advertised, and helped create an itinerary that maximized my time and enjoyment in Europe. Jeanie not only obviously loves travel, but delights in sharing that love with others, as well. She was well informed, conscientious, and accessible for my many, many questions. Many thanks to Jeanie and Riveting Trips."

Janet

Traveled to Paris and London

"Jeanie was helpful and organized in planning my trips to Chile, Mexico, Peru, Bolivia, and Ecuador. Responses are prompt and within one business day at the latest. Just tell her what you want and she will accommodate. If I had no ideas on what to do, Jeanie will suggest great activities to do. I loved the travel suggestions in biking around Chile, going up Machu Picchu, and snorkeling in the Galapagos."

Erwin

Traveled to Latin America

"We just finished an AWESOME trip to Peru, Bolivia, Ecuador and Galapagos Islands! It was truly a trip of a lifetime, all thanks to Riveting Trips. Everything was so well planned out, we didn't have to worry about a thing besides having fun 🙂 Jeanie was accessible and helpful during the entire trip to ensure that everything went smoothly. We are already planning our next trip with Riveting Trips... can't wait!"
