Hi Friends and Family!
We are thrilled to have you join us in Bari, Italy on August 30, 2022 for our celebration.
The ceremony will take place at the San Marco church in Bari (Church of Saint Mark the Evangelis) Via Caldarola, 50 , Bari, Italy.
There are a lot of churches with the San Marco name, so check the address carefully. The event will begin at 11:00 am, but you will want to arrive at 10:30. The ceremony will last about about and hour, maybe less.
The reception party immediately afterwards will be held at Villa Menelao about 26 minutes away by car. Lunch and Dinner will be served, so prepare for some amazing food! The party will last late into the evening.
The tradition in Italy is different than the US. Invited guests contribute Euros toward the reception party as their gift to the bride and groom. The contribution is voluntary and is offered in an envelope in Euros at the wedding reception.
Staying in Italy.
Bari is a very busy city, with lots of congestion. We recommend staying in a smaller nearby town, such as Monopoli, or Polignano di Mare. After the wedding you might want to ditch the car and travel by train everywhere. Must see places are Lecce, about an hour south by train. There are also amazing seaside villages as you travel south.
