Enchanting sceneries, luxury private villas, breathtaking views, romantic boat cruises… just a little of the Amalfi Coast’s charm that has captivated engaged couples to tie-the-knot even a thousand miles away from home.
Are you thinking of taking off and getting married in Italy? Are you looking for the right tips? Well, don’t panic! Here are my 7 #destinationlove top-tips:
1. Pick your venue
Suggestive terraces overlooking the sea or private villas: where you will say ‘ Yes, I do ’ is clearly the key of a destination wedding – not just a location, but the place where you and your guests will feel at home – which means that you might think about some entertainment activities they could do on their own for the day before and the day after around the Amalfi Coast too! So hilarious! Enjoy!
2. Save the date
Doubtless, another key thing is to set the date. Planning a destination wedding on the Amalfi Coast takes the right timing! In Italy, generally, people tend to get married during peak season – from May to September – hence, considering the favorable weather conditions, you should set the date and book your dream venue as soon as possible in order to have a better chance to find it available. On the flip side, if you’re going for a destination elopement, the off season is the best – from October to March – for a more intimate ceremony to enjoy to the fullest the unique atmosphere of the Amalfi Coast.
3. Give your guests a Heads-up
One of the main destination wedding tips is: send out the save-the-date-cards well in advance – 10 or 8 months before – Your dearest will be thrilled to share your special day with you, basically, you are giving them the opportunity to ‘switch off’ and take a holiday, but don’t forget that there are a lot of logistics details to arrange. Be sure to give your guests all necessary information in time.
4. The more the merrier or not?
This one can be tricky! It’s totally on you and on how long or short you want your guest list to be. Keep in mind that a destination wedding is a trip experience. Then, I suggest you surround yourselves with your nearest & dearest!
5. Have a pre-wedding trip
Planning a wedding in Italy when you’re far-far away can be a tough issue. Once on board, I’ll make sure to guarantee you a memorable Italian wedding experience! Anyway, after having preliminary meetings, I could not recommend you enough to take the opportunity to land in Italy and meet in person. Moreover, you can have a look-see at the venue, have a rehearsal dinner and plan a trial with a local hairdressing and make-up artist for the bride – they tend to be full.
6. Kind of ceremony
What kind of ceremony would you like? A traditional religious ceremony, a civil outdoor rite or a fascinating symbolic ceremony… Regardless of your choice, you need to start the procedure to get the necessary documentation, naturally with my support.
7. Have fun & Not-Planning
Tying the knot out-of-country can be really complicated and it’s easy to freak out when start the planning process. By the way, take time just for the two of you and don’t stress you out anymore! All you have to do is relying on your professional planner and having the most stress-free experience ever.
Think outside the box! I’ll be your toolbox to make your #destinationlove as flawless as it can be from the get-to… your call!
