FAQ - Wedding Day
What should I wear? Is there a dress code?
The dress code for our wedding is formal/semi-formal. The rules of the Duomo di Ravello (location of wedding ceremony) are traditional. Women are recommended to bring something to cover their shoulders during the ceremony if possible.
What will the weather be like?
The ceremony will be held indoors at Duomo di Ravello. The remainder of the wedding celebrations – from Prosecco in the piazza to after-dinner dancing - will be held outdoors. The after party will move inside Villa Eva. The average temperature during the day in August is 86 degrees, and at night 76 degrees. Due to being +/- 1,000 ft. above sea level, Ravello (location of ceremony and reception) generally runs 5 degrees cooler.
How do I get to the venue?
Transportation will be provided from Amalfi. Please see Transportation Section.
