WHAT IS A DESTINATION WEDDING?
A destination wedding is when a couple decides to get married away from home, out of state or in another country. Will you be the next to announce that your wedding will be held in France with your favorite partner Madame Wedding Design? For my part, being a french wedding planner, hosting destination weddings! "No matter where you are, I will be at your service if you decide to opt for my wonderful territory, where castles, lavender fields abound or palaces open the doors of elegance".
WHAT KIND OF WEDDING PLANNER DO I NEED?
Does this make me a destination wedding planner? No, I am not. A destination wedding planner is a wedding planner who specializes in organizing weddings abroad (outside her home territory). Madame Wedding Design is a Paris based agency specializing in weddings in France, so you can imagine that finding venues and suppliers will hold no secrets for us. We will provide you with a list of talent and service providers based locally and beyond as our ambition is to maintain international links.
WHEN SHOULD I START PLANNING?
The best time to start your wedding project is now! In general, you should book your wedding planner between 12 and 18 months before your wedding date. However, there are always exceptions, such as exclusive weddings that can be done in less than 6 months, but for this you should not have any budget constraints.
HOW DO I BOOK MY VENUE?
This is the most important step once you have found your wedding planner. The venue allows you to project yourself with more confidence, it makes things more concrete.
But above all, it is also a step that triggers the sending of Save the Dates or invitations. Unexpected changes of location can create delay in the process of organizing your wedding and create stress. We recommend you to pay particular attention to the choice of your venue, so that the following steps can be carried out serenely.
HOW IS THE WEDDING ORGANIZED?
An exclusive and high-end destination wedding requires more than 500 hours of work. Knowledge of the area is of great benefit to your event. It helps to manage and prevent risks, thus speeding up the decision making process of the wedding organization.
The most important thing when deciding on a destination wedding is to create a bond of trust with your main partner: your wedding planner. Then it's a matter of creating the right conditions to work together despite the distance. How do we do this? By establishing sustained communication, consistency, commitment and a real partnership.
WHAT IS THE EXPERIENCE OF A DESTINATION WEDDING?
A destination wedding is a wonderful thing, it's a real lifestyle, like an art of living. It is a high quality, immersive experience for you and your guests that you will remember. It's about sharing and the pleasure of giving, it's a philosophy, so if you're an epicurean, the destination wedding is for you. It is also an intense and collective moment of getaway, it is the delivery of wonder. The celebration of your feelings in an intimate way by accessing the most precious properties.
With everything I've just told you, I'm sure you already want to get on board and book your tickets for your wedding in 2022. Dear couples, I look forward to reading all about you and welcoming you to France in 2022.
