Thank you all for the wonderful welcome. This site is fabulous! I would love to share my experience and impart any advice for those interested in a wedding in Rome. I will definitely share my post wedding pictures too!

 

Heidi, I canâ€t believe I found my wedding date twin. Especially because Friday weddings arenâ€t all that common. But hey! The same rules donâ€t apply with destination weddings.

 

Hi Twinkletoes! My fiance and I chose Italy because we are both travel junkies and history buffs. So we wanted to get married someplace romantic with tons of history. So Rome fit the bill! Paris was an option, but it seemed that the Italian language was a little less insurmountable than the French language. :)

 

Jessalyn, out of curiosity, did the champagne before the ceremony help with nerves? hehe.

Hi Lili! So exciting to be getting married in Rome! I lived in Italy (in Siena) for a while... and I miss it terribly!!!! If you need any assistance with language stuff, tips on getting around Rome/Italy etc. Let me know, I'll be happy to help in any way I can.

 

Where are you staying in Rome? So many fantastic venues!

 

Last year my FI and I took his parents to Rome to do a renewal of vows for his parent's 50th anniversary. They're catholic, parents came over from Italy, etc. so it made great sense. We had the ceremony at the Basilica di San Silvestro in Capite - Fr. John Fitzpatrick. All in English (they don't parla), it was WONDERFUL!! I know you'll have the most spectacular experience!

Hi Becks!

 

Thanks for your offer of assistance. :) You are SO lucky to have lived in Italy. And in Siena! Oh the wonderful wine you must have drank. I can only dream. Your FI's parent's 50th anniversary must have been so lovely.

 

Let's see...we are planning to stay at Relais Pierret in Piazza di Spagna. We stayed there when we were there last May and just loved it. The hotel overlooks the Spanish Steps, so at night we would leave the windows open to see/hear the guitarists playing music. I didn't mind the sound of the crowds at all. It was just so romantic.

 

One of our activities with our guests is to have everyone meet at the Spanish Steps to have a glass/bottle of Prosecco. Just something memorable that our guests can say they have done in their life...

    • Another option is to find an app that allows for group talk. This Wedding Party App looks pretty neat. https://apracticalwedding.com/wedding-party-app/ 
    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
