Budget for Italy wedding!
We recently got engaged and I am dreaming of a destination wedding in Italy! Our plan is currently:
- 50-60 guests (includes 8 children under 10 years old)
- private villa/small boutique hotel with accommodation for all guests for 2 nights (around 25 - 30 rooms) on the coast or lakefront
- civil ceremony
- reception including aperitifs/meal/band or other music
- usual wedding extras i.e. Photographer for full day/ flowers/ decs and dress/ suit/ bridesmaid and groomsmen outfits etc
We want to pay for that, and guests pay for own flights... I wondered, has anyone done anything similar, or are you planning the same? Trying to gauge an idea of budget, of course it will depend on level of accomm etc but just wondering if anyones had something similar and would be happy to share their budget to give us a starting point!
Planning for 2017
All thoughts much appreciated, and if anyone has any personal recommendations would love to hear them!
