• How does it work with you?
To start, we prefer to meet our couple in person (or on Skype or Zoom) to make sure that our personalities mesh, and that we would both like to work together. If we find that we are a good fit for each other, we will show you a draft of our agreement, and once it is signed, we can start planning your event. This agreement contains only aspects related to our service as your wedding planner. Therefore it doesn’t include the duties and services offered by vendors. For this reason, the couple will sign single agreements with each vendor and send additional payments to each one of them, and we will assist you during this vital step.
• How can I receive a quote from you?
Each wedding is different from the other. Especially in destination weddings, the type of demands may vary a lot. The requests are pretty much diversified, from logistics aspects and accommodation to everything that concerns the legal paperwork for couples who need legal assistance for a legally binding ceremony in Italy.
For these reasons, we kindly invite you to send us a detailed request via email or using the contact form.
• Do you offer wedding packages?
No. We create tailor-made events about your desires. For this reason, we don’t propose and offer packages for our clientele.
• Do you charge the first consultation?
No. Your first consultation is free. If the couple needs more than one consultation before booking with us, there will be a fee invoiced.

• How much does a Wedding Planner in Italy cost?
It depends on whether the planner does this for a living or not. Some planners ask for a low fee because they do not have to cover their business expenses, do not have budget finance, and do not hire anyone to manage your event.
In Italy, some planners will ask you only 500€ for the whole event and other planners will ask you 7000€. It's not a problem of how much is the fee but it is about whether you trust the planner or not and mostly how much experience and connection the planners have in the chosen territory.
• We have an idea of the venue but we haven’t found the right one, what can you do for us?
The selection of the venue is a service the can be sold apart. However, we include this option in our main services, such as: “Wedding Planning and Design,” “Destination wedding” and “Elopement.”
• We would like to come in Italy some time before to inspect some venues, will you be with us?
Yes, we will be by your side when you come here, as specified in our agreement.
• Do you offer Legal services for a legally binding ceremonies in Italy?
Yes, the co-founder Alessandro has been working as a practicing lawyer in different law firms. For this reason, he knows the procedure very well, and he has mastered the relationship with the public administration and public institutions.
• In which Italian areas do you work?
We cover the areas of Tuscany, Umbria, Dolomites, South Tyrol, Amalfi and Sorrento, as we have built a solid experience and relationships in these areas. However, it happens frequently that we are asked to extend our presence all over the Italian territory. We love to use the richness and the beauty of the other regions and experiment with new flavors and colors and meet new professionals.
• How do you choose which wedding suppliers and vendors to use?
It took a long time to establish many of our vendor relationships, so we propose to our couples only reliable and tested vendors and suppliers.
If the couple has already chosen a vendor, we are open to mix them with ours.
• I want to host a pre/post wedding event, coul you assist us?
Yes. Destination Wedding in Italy will be such a joyful moment, and your guests will come from so far to celebrate with you this unique event for more than one day. Therefore, a pre/post wedding event is something we are happy to manage. A relaxed pizza party, poolside BBQ, tapas evening on the beach, or an authentic wine and “Grappa” tasting session are just some ideas.
• Do you take on more than one wedding per day?
No, we never take on two weddings on the same day. This approach allows us to only focus on you. Besides, wedding days are exhausting for a planner; we have to run from one place to another, directing vendors and guests. It wouldn’t be fair to you to have another event the day before yours as we wouldn’t be in the right shape to focus on you and your guests.
• Will you be at my wedding?
Of course. After months (or year) of planning, it will be our pleasure and duty to be there on the day to ensure you can relax, enjoy your moments and rest assured that we are on hand to help everything run smoothly.
Depending on your event's size and logistics, we will be present from the set up until the moment the last vendor provides its service.
