Why Slow Dreams for Your Wedding in Italy?

Slow Dreams is a team  of British, American & Italian weddings planners in Italy  with offices in Europe (Italy) and the US. 

There are numerous reasons for having Slow Dreams  as your wedding planner in Italy




Scores of testimonials  -  To best understand our success in  managing & planning Italian weddings, look at our weddings Italy testimonials, and Tripadvisor posts.  We have been successfully managing weddings in Italy since 2003.


A large choice of venue types    -  regardless if your wedding is a luxury wedding in Italy or a budget wedding, all our venues are in stunning locations with wonderful views - some of the finest views in Europe.


Careful wedding management    -  All of our staff have lived many years in Italy.  To minimize miscommunications and errors in general, we always assign multiple wedding planners to every wedding who repeatedly cross check everything.


Unusual Italian wedding venues  -  To make weddings even more memorable at highly affordable prices, as  well us the usual type of wedding venues in Italy (castles, villas, hotels, etc.), we offer  some of the most memorable,  and certainly most different  ideas for a  wedding in Italy  - e.g., see our "Unusual Italian Weddings"  - these include  sailboatdeserted beach and deserted island,  cliff-tops, a lovers walk on the sea, agriturismos  (family farms).   We can even arrange an "armada" of boats to one of Italy's most secluded and dramatic cliff surrounded beaches.  





Low cost of services  -  since we bring a lot of business to the various service providers (florist, photographer, etc.),  we strongly negotiate prices with then  and, importantly,  publish those prices on this site for you to see even  before contacting us.    Have a look at our cost and prices (all taxes are  included)  -  you will find these costs to be simply low.  The average cost of an Italian wedding with Slow Dreams is a fraction of the average cost of a wedding,  for example, in the UK or the US.


Italy's Best Kept Secret  -  We offer a lot of venues in  the Coast of Maratea & The Cilento - Traveler Magazine says "Maratea is Heaven - It's The Amalfi Without The Crowds.... Italy's Best Kept Secret".  beside being one of the lower cost areas of Italy,  most  mayors of this region will conduct outdoor ceremonies at the venue of your choice -  saving the significant  cost of having a symbolic ceremony in addition to the civil town-hall marriage costs.


A wide range of differently priced venues  -  there are venue prices to fit all types of budget from the low to the extremely high.   See list of venues.


Special Offers  -   these range from  special offers from individual venues to local tourist board rebates for having your wedding in their region - this rebate can significantly lower the cost of your wedding. 







Flexibility - not a subject discussed much in wedding web-sites  - but so important for peace of mind,  so important for a relaxed wedding.  Most of our Italian wedding venues offer a great deal of flexibility.


Venue Choice - We offer a large variety  of venues, and types of Italy Weddings.


Marry Where You Want   -  in many of our venues,  the mayors and ministers  will marry you at the venue of YOUR choice - hotels, villas, churches, beaches, etc.  You are NOT restricted to just town-halls and Catholic churches, as is the case  for most Italy weddings.


No Minimum Stay  -  many wedding venues in Italy require a 6 or even 10 day stay.  However, most of our venues have no minimum stay  -  however, we do recommend coming a day or two early during the week to lodge paperwork at the town-hall and to simply chill-out.


Outdoor Weddings Italy  -  Many of our  mayors and ministers offer outdoor ceremonies.  Unfortunately Catholic weddings in Italy are still restricted to a church - however, we do offer a great choice of beautiful and historic churches.


Last Minute Weddings Italy/Elope to Italy -  US citizens can have last minute expedited approval just by bringing their passports  -  by "last minute", we mean just a few days  - total flexibility.    See our no hassle approval.   Any other couple who has their embassy's approval (i.e., they have Nulla Ostas)  can take advantage of this last minute wedding service.   For those who cannot get last minute approval, we offer symbolic ceremonies from either a local mayor  (identical to a legal Italian wedding, but not legal) or a minister or simply have a friend be the celebrant.


Non-Catholic Church Italian Weddings  -  We have churches that allow for non-Catholic religious weddings,   including, for example,  the Church of Our Lady  of The Snow & Olives, a small historic church with ancient frescoes  situated alone  on a mountain-top cliff overlooking -  the sea, the historic red-tiled roof town of Maratea with its 44 churches, the world class Coast of Maratea,  and two national parks,  the Cilento and Pollino.


Bring Your Own Celebrant  -  Bring your own priest (most of our churches allow this, but not all), minister, rabbi, etc. 


Italian Weddings For  Woman Divorced  LESS than 300 days -   Most of our mayors ignore the 300 day arcane law for Italian weddings that prohibits woman from marrying within 300 days  of their divorce. 






Many couples and guests want to attend the wedding then move to see our parts of Italy they have dreamed about.  There are excellent inexpensive high-speed trains services to Tuscany (Florence, Pisa, etc), Rome, Naples,  Pompeii, Herculaneum, Paestum,  Salerno (boat to Amalfi Coast), Sorrento,  Sicily ferry boat, etc, etc.
