Symbolic ceremony for weddings in Italy
Nowadays, getting married with a symbolic ceremony has become very common, especially among young couples who deeply believe in its spiritual value.
Not having any legal or religious value, a symbolic ceremony doesn’t require any documentation. It can be celebrated in any place and any language by a professional or a family member.
Symbolic ceremonies are a valid alternative to civil ones, especially if your aim is to avoid bureaucratic procedures or in case you have already celebrated a civil wedding in your own country. A symbolic ceremony is often chosen by couples with different religious beliefs or by those thinking it is unnecessary to sign a contract when declaring eternal love to each other.
Nowhere else in the world except in Italy, you will have such a big choice in terms of extraordinary settings and venues as perfect background on your symbolic wedding, such as panoramic terraces with sea views or overlooking blue lakes, wonderful gardens or castle’s courts, tiny and cozy village squares, Tuscan vineyards or barefoot on a beach.
We, at Italy Wedding Planner, will be happy to help you find the perfect location for your symbolic wedding ceremony in Italy.
A symbolic rite lasts approximately 30 minutes and is celebrated by a celebrant who can issue a wedding certificate at the end of it.
This kind of ceremony leaves a lot of room for personalization, they can be enriched with vow exchange, poem readings, and much more, creating a very evocative, intimate, and romantic atmosphere, tailor-made on the spouse’s dreams.
The most common rituals that can be celebrated during a symbolic ceremony are:
– Light Ritual, where the spouses, each of them holding a candle, will symbolically light a new one.
– Sand Ritual, where the spouses will mix two different colored bunch of sands together, to symbolize their union.
