For Non-Italians a civil marriage is required before you can have a religious or symbolic ceremonial in Italy. If you prefer to have a simple civil wedding in Italy it is highly recommended that you appear in front of the town registrar at the least four days prior to the date of the ceremony just to insure enough time for all papers to be attested and the necessary paperwork to be completed. You will need to present your passport. You will also need to present your birth certification. If this is not your first marriage you will need to certify the end of your earlier wedding. You and your witnesses must also assert before the Italian Consulate office in the USA that under the laws of your jurisdiction you have the legal right to marry. All documents must be rendered into Italian by a certified interpreter and certain written documents must have what is known as an Apostille Stamp from the Secretary of State in the state in which you are living. With all the paperwork in place it takes anywhere from three to four days to get permission to get married for a civil ceremony held at a town hall.
