Religious weddings can be celebrated in magnificent Protestant and Catholic churches or Jewish Synagogues where the ceremony will be held in accordance with both the proper civil and religious requirements and the marriage will have legal recognition in your country. With Protestant, Catholic and Jewish wedding ceremonies therefore, you can concurrently be united with both a civil and a religious ceremony.

France, England, Spain, Portugal and several other European countries, instead, have a thirty to forty day residency requirement - or more - before you can apply for permission to marry with a legal ceremony.
There is no residency requirement to marry in Italy. This allows foreigners to tie the knot and honeymoon in any location without long bureaucratic delays. In some cases you can arrive and get married in Italy within two days.

A civil marriage performed in Italy has legal recognition throughout the world. The certificate you are given is multi-lingual and can be issued in several different copies. All that you must do is register it in your home country, in which case the marriage laws applicable in that state, province or country will apply.
Catholic weddings can be celebrated as a religious blessing, where you arrive already legally married, or a priest can perform both a Catholic and a civil ceremony simultaneously. 

For couples wanting to skip the paperwork altogether there is another option: That of having a romantic Symbolic ceremony with all the trimmings. A symbolic marriage ceremony follows traditional lines, but will not hold any formal religious or civil legitimacy. Having the restrictions removed allows you to get married just about anywhere except for an official civil hall or church. Many couples opt for this solution as it grants them complete freedom to celebrate both ceremony and reception in the location of their own choosing.  

Your Italy wedding party can be either very small or very big and can be organized it in one of many historic parks, restaurants or even famous Italian caf├ęs in renowned piazzas.
