Help! Small Wedding in Spain, Italy, or Paris

Jump to last reply

I am going to be spending three weeks in December traveling to Spain, Italy, and ending in Paris over New Years. I have been trying to plan a wedding ceremony for just me and my wife, no guests, in any of these locations. I have not had much luck mainly due to not wanting to spend a fortune on it.

I am already legally married in the US so there doesn't need to be any paperwork involved. So it would be considered a symbolic ceremony, wedding blessing, or renewal of vows. I have found a number of wedding planners who can help with this, but the problem is that I can't afford their rates. Unfortunately, the big spend for me is the trip itself.

But I don't see any reason why it should cost over $1000 for an officiant to do a simple blessing for the two of us. I mean, if a gondola ride in Venice costs $100 then a gondola ride with a wedding officiant aboard shouldn't cost $1500 (a quote I got).

Any help would be appreciated. Getting married in Europe is a real dream for my wife and I'm trying to make it happen at a price we can afford.

Thanks!
