Reasons to hire a destination wedding planner in France
Planning your wedding day will be one of the most exciting journeys you’ll ever take, but it is also likely that it will also be one of the most stressful. This is particularly the case if you’re planning your celebration in a faraway destination that you’re not overly familiar with – not to mention the language barriers! However, if the thought of saying, ‘I Do’ in somewhere as beautiful as France has you feeling weak at the knees, you do have the option of a destination wedding planner. Here’s why you might want to consider hiring one for your French wedding…
While this may not apply to every wedding that is planned in a far-flung location, often, language barriers can cause challenges. Essentially, it can make the planning process trickier than it needs to be! Having lived in France for many years, I speak the language fluently and am therefore able to effortlessly translate for clients or to simply provide seamless communication between couples and suppliers.
Here at By Joanne Weddings, I am lucky enough to live closely to local, talented suppliers whom I truly trust to bring your celebration together. I am a long-term resident of France and know the area extensively, including key suppliers and the country’s most sought-after wedding venues. As part of my planning services, I can curate a list of vendors and venues who I feel would be the perfect fit for your love story, from florists to photographers, stationers to cake makers! I can even recommend the dreamiest honeymoon locations if you want to extend your wedding day.
SAVE YOURSELF TIME
Wedding planning, whether abroad or in your home country, is a hugely time-consuming process. Team this with the stresses that planning a destination wedding can bring, and it can easily become a full-time job. From budget planning, booking consultation, spreadsheet creation and the finer details, I’ll take care of every element of your destination wedding for you. Hiring a planner means you can simply look forward to the destination celebration of your dreams, without a worry in the world. Don’t forget to swing by my planning process page to find out more. .
Hiring the expertise of a wedding planner not only means you’ll have help with the organisational elements, but it also means you’re guaranteeing security when booking suppliers and venues. At By Joanne, I bring you the highest level of service and work collaboratively with you to source the most prestigious suppliers for your special day, taking care of negotiation without compromising on quality. I’ll also help you to set a budget and to ensure your wedding day is planned around this – offering advice on projected costs of planning a French wedding so that the process is as streamlined as possible.
THE LEGAL SIDE
The legalities of getting married can change from country to country, and I have an in-depth knowledge of the legalities of tying the knot in France. I’ll take care of the paperwork and documents, so that you can sit back, relax and soak up the romance! Alternatively, I recommend to my couples to get married in your hometown so you can host a non-religious ceremony in France without the complications!
EXTEND YOUR WEDDING
Destination weddings tend to last longer than just a day, and I love working with couples to extend their celebration so that they can really enjoy the experience with their friends and family. If you would like to book extra activities for your loved ones to enjoy, such as boat trips, cookery classes or intimate dinners, this can be included within my services.
