For a legal civil marriage it is highly recommended that you arrive in Italy at least a few days before the wedding, as the town registrar must review your passports. The necessary paperwork must be completed once you are in Italy.
Civil ceremonies may also be celebrated in the Catholic church if you choose a Catholic ceremony with legal validity. There may be those who says that it is impossible to get legally married in a church in Italy or that you must have a civil ceremony in your country of origin first, but that is simply untrue! We are among the few wedding planners in Italy able to arrange legally binding Catholic ceremonies in the church.
