COVID-19 Weddings in Italy: Can Coronavirus (covid-19) affect your wedding in Italy? 

Hi I am Deborah Taliani from Just Get Married in Italy, a destination wedding planner operating in Italy. On this video I will talk about  the Coronavirus (covid-19) and how it may affect your wedding day in Italy. Wedding planners are used to cope with the unexpected, it’s part of our job and I encourage couples not to panic ahead of their big day. Your wedding won’t be affected by the current restrictions, in place until May 3rd, if it’s outside this period. We couples getting married during this time, have been given the option to postpone it and the rescheduling fees have been waived or go ahead, as some venues, including Rome’s Town hall allow civil weddings, respecting some security measures. For couples that don’t have a new date yet, they will be given a voucher to be used within 1 year. Similar options are also available to other clients outside this time frame to overcome any possible restrictions that might be taken from their home country after this time.

covid-19  Weddings & Coronavirus: security measures in Italy 

We thank all our amazing clients for their support and thoughtful messages during this challenging time for Italy ! we are all good and business is as usual. Let’s face it, We are all venturing into new territory, mostly to do with the restrictions imposed rather than the Emergency itself. If you are a bit older like myself, you surely remember other serious emergencies like aids , mad cow disease, Ebola, and more recently SARS and also the Terrorism attacks . The difference with the Coronavirus are the measures taken to stop the outbreak, which are very challenging for all. I know that hearing the news is one thing and being here is a complete different story. What has been restricted is our social life. So, NO party time for Italians until May 3rd . My advice is to follow the World Health Organization procedures and get all info from official government channels. The UK travel advice page is also given you the option to subscribe to a newsletter with the latest updates from Italy, while I found the Irish one, the most comprehensive in explaining clearly the security measures in place until May 3rd, in Italy. Keep washing your hands e Ciao a tutti da Roma!
