Sardinia is the ideal island not only for relax, but also for wedding. Stunning scenery, emerald sea, velvety-soft white sand, inviting bays, exclusive venues are the perfect set for a luxurious wedding by the sea in Italy.
It is a mistake to believe that only a couple of high budget can afford a wedding in Sardinia, because Sardinia is not only the Costa Smeralda with luxury hotels, yachts, boutiques and VIP-persons. Sardinia is the island of contrasts that combines the luxury of the Costa Smeralda and the simplicity of the picturesque villages, the noise of trendy beaches and the quiet of secluded coves, the exquisite restaurants, marked by Michelin stars, and the modesty home (but no less delicious) cuisine.
Civil wedding ceremony in Sardinia normally is carried out by representatives of the mayor's office in the Town Hall the following cities: Olbia, Cagliari, Alghero, Arzachena, Palau. Since 2014 the officials may conduct a wedding ceremony on the territory of some municipal beaches or bays. Request for a civil wedding ceremony on the beach must be submitted at least 3 months prior to the wedding date. It should also be borne in mind that part of the beach is provided for the wedding ceremony in Sardinia, that is enough to accommodate a ceremonial table, arch and chairs for guests, but the beach for visitors is not closed, which means that many unfamiliar people can become the witnesses of your wedding in Sardinia.
If you are looking for an intimate wedding ceremony by the sea, then we recommend to consider the beach or the bay on the island of Asinara.
