Arranging a destination wedding in Italy and staying within budget without sacrificing style and desires is not very easy nowadays. Planning your wedding on a budget means getting the best deals on all your wedding’s expenses. Weddings and Weddings will try to pass you some interesting tips and ideas for your fantastic Tuscan wedding in 2015. Our aim is not to offer you ‘low cost’ wedding, but to give you some good secrets to save money and get the best quality in any case! Let’s see:
-Timing is important. Before setting a destination, ensure there aren’t any major events during that period (Italian holidays/breaks) as most of the locations have full prices on these dates. Some feasts as St Valentine day might impact on your budget as flowers or catering because of the high demand in these days
-Be flexible with your date. A trick to plan destination wedding on a budget is that every guest can already be in the location. Guests have not to work the next day, so why do not choose a week day instead of a weekend? Villa rental, catering, music, and even town hall fees for your civil wedding are much cheaper on a week day in Tuscany.
-Use your location as natural setting for your Tuscan wedding. If you choose a location with a stunning background as a country farm on a hill or a villa facing Tuscan seashore, you won’t need to have high expensive flowers or decorations as the natural beauty of Tuscany will be appreciated by all your guests.
-Register. Create a honeymoon registry! They are popular for destination wedding and can put some money in your wedding budget. Instead of getting household items, guests can pay for portions of your honeymoon, activities, visits.
-Enjoy local food and drinks. In order to save money, choose a local wedding meal with typical Italian food and toast with local drinks as prosecco instead of champagne. If you have ‘good’ drinkers, another suggestion is to handle ‘all-inclusive drinks’ with the local catering company. This will save quite a lot of money!
-Shop around and get good deals. Weddings and Weddings, your local wedding planner, will help you in finding right solutions for several items and services that are surely less expensive in Italy than in your country. For example wedding shoes, tie for groom, typical wedding favors to give to guests at the end of the party, special Italian wedding cake.
-Choose a special Tuscan wedding destination out of the main tourist stream. There are many little medieval towns as Volterra, Suvereto, Barga, or nice villages on the coast as Pietrasanta, Castiglioncello, which can offer very good deals for your Italian wedding, especially if out of the high tourist season.
These are just some basic suggestions for your Tuscan wedding. As you see, you can surely arrange a fantastic wedding on a budget in Tuscany without getting crazy for expenses prices. Just contact us to get some interesting ideas and proposals!
