That depends on the type of ceremony you are thinking about and the number of guests. Anyway, we suggest to entrust a local wedding planner (there are two of us) who will help you organize the wedding.
The major factors influencing the price for a wedding in Capri are: the trip to reach the location, local transportation, accommodations for the guests and all the expenses strictly related to the event. Therefore, how much does a wedding in Capri cost? Let’s get into it.
What is the price for a wedding in Capri or Anacapri with civil ceremony?
Here we go again: what is the price for a wedding in Capri with civil or symbolic ceremony? Let’s answer that right away: fees start from €350 for weddings to be celebrated during working hours (which can be found inside the Capri municipal Hall in the Piazzetta).
Price can go up to €500 for ceremonies which also take place inside the boarding chamber yet outside of working hours. The amount, on the other hand, goes up if you want to get married in Capri outside: we’re talking flowering terraces, historic villas and belvederes owned by the municipality. In this case, price would be €1500. For more details, you can take a look at civil union fees established by the Comune of Capri.
And how much does it cost to get married in Anacapri, the Comune at the foothill of Mount Solaro? For weddings to be celebrated in the garden surrounding the municipal Hall or in the Council chamber, base price is €200 during working days and within office hours and can go up to €300 for the weekends and outside office hours.
On the other hand, price would be €400 for holidays and days before a holiday. Moreover, that amount goes up if you want to get married in Anacapri outside: you’ll have to pay €500 to exchange your vows in one of the Belvederes right above the sea or in one of the fragrant plant groves. For all the information and prices, you can take a look at this page from the Comune di Anacapri’s website.
Price for a religous wedding in Capri
If you prefer to skip the civil ceremony, you can choose to get married in Capri in a church. This is an excellent choice as well. The island is peppered with big and small religious buildings, some facing the sea. What is a process to celebrate a religious ceremony?
First of all, the groom and bride to be must get in touch – with no mediators – with the parish priest and the curia. Besides, those who are not part of the Italian Diocese are required to submit a letter of intent to the local community vicar along with all the needed documentation.
The curia will review the application and, within a month after receiving it, will inform couple about its decision. What is the prize to get married in Capri in a church? The celebration is free but the newlywed couple can make a donation.
What about the price for a symbolic wedding?
A symbolic wedding in Capri has no legal value. It is a ceremony taking place before or after the official union. In this case, you can choose the location you prefer and also those used for civil weddings and more unconventional ones.
For instance, you can choose a lemon grove or a beach. You can also get married in Capri on a boat (with the sea stacks as guest witnesses), or in private villa or on a hotel terrace.

This is another crucial aspect to consider if you want to plan a wedding in Capri: you have to price in all the expenses for the guests’ stay. Usually, guests will stay on the island for two nights at least. You need to ask how many guests are you going to have? Are you thinking a high number or you just want to accommodate your closest relatives?
In other words, do you want to offer a stay in a hotel to everyone or just your family?
