Each destination wedding in Rome will be tailor-made, because each couple is unique, with different requirements, often a very precise vision of the wedding day and always a specific budget.
Here’s an idea of the wedding planning process, from the initial consultation up to the wedding day:
Initial free email consultation for professional advice on planning a destination wedding in Rome and general costs involved
Developing a personalized proposal and quote for the wedding day
Free phone or Skype consultation
Suggesting ceremony venues (civil wedding venue, church or symbolic ceremony venue)
Booking the ceremony venue chosen
Assistance with paperwork for civil weddings and church weddings
Providing an English-speaking (or other language) officiant for the ceremony, either a priest for church weddings or an actor for symbolic ceremonies
Suggesting possible reception venues
Suggesting catering company
Booking the venue chosen and assistance with the contract between the couple and the reception venue
All communicationsand meetings necessary with the reception venue manager
Discussing and confirming the Banquet Event Order with the reception venue manager
Discussing additional services necessary and suggesting vendors (florist, photographer, videographer, hair-stylist, make-up artist, musicians, etc.)
Booking the vendors chosen
Phone calls, email correspondence and meetings with the vendors chosen
Throughout the planning, contact with the couple via email, Skype, phone, WhatsApp and possibly, other media, such as Instagram and Facebook
Discussing and producing the “Wedding Day Programme” with the couple to be approved and sent to the couple before arrival in Rome
