Italy wedding on a budget
We sre considering getting married in Italy and want to start planning but would like to do most of this ourselves. We have seen that many of the wedding planners in Italy cost thousands and really just put us in touch with the services such as photographers, venues, caterers and florists.
Has anyone had experience of arranging an Italian wedding direct and are there any tips that you can offer
For instance this venue; http://www.villasanraffaello.com/le-marche-italy/italy-destination-weddings-abroad.html which is rated consistently excellent on-line are offering to put us in touch with all the contacts we need, arrange tenders for each of them and let us choose. The wedding venue is the at the medieval comune of Sarnano, a town in Le Marche that is listed amongst Italy's most beautiful and only costs €150. It seems that the cost of a wedding for 25 guests will cost under €4000 for aperitivis, a banquet, flowers, cake, the flowers and the ceremony. Accommodation for 25 is less than €20 a head for a weeks stay. They have offered to put us in touch with previous couples who married there to find out more.
Please let me know what you think of these costs or whether anyone has any other options of places to combine honeymoon and wedding on a budget. Thanks
