Getting married in Italy!
It is crazy when I think back over the past 12 months, to say it's been a funny old year would be an understatement and I think its safe to say it's not over yet! But even with the challenges 2020 brought, at the same time it has made us all slow down, spend more time with our loved ones, bunkered down at home, focus on our families, our own health, our wellbeing...
Basically Covid made us remember who is important and the values we cherish. Love has triumphed and the we have seen many marriage proposals. As couples turn their attention towards planning their wedding, Italy with all the tradition and family values, amazing venues, history and fantastic food and wine, is the perfect location for a destination wedding.
Now I wish I did not have to write again about Covid 19, and I am sure you wish you were not reading about it when thinking about your wedding anywhere in the world, but I would like to update you on the situation here in Italy and the good news is, things are looking up.
Prime Minister Mario Draghi announced "Italy will open for tourism from mid-May" . His message to prospective visitors is that "the time has come to book your holidays".
Mr Draghi said Italy would move ahead of the EU in introducing its own travel pass to resume tourism after the pandemic.
Whilst at the time of writing this, there are travel restrictions in place, we believe the Italian government shall be announcing soon when the current 5 days quarantine will be lifted. The Italian government have shown to be decisive in putting the publics health first and as we saw in the first wave, Italy did a great job! We have full confidence weddings will take place this summer.
So if you are setting the date for your wedding in Italy, my advice is weddings in 2021 are looking good, if you are thinking of a last minuet wedding in Italy or maybe you are thinking of eloping, there are really amazing deals to be found! If you are only just starting to plan your wedding and are looking at 2022 or 2023, both years are booking up fast, so it is advisable to secure your date ASAP!
We all need great weddings after this to bring our families and friends back together!
