@rmartinez0628:  What about using a credit card that doesn’t have any foreign transaction fees?  We got a Capitol One Visa specifically without a foreign transaction fee just for our destination elopement/weddingmoon.  (My AMEX added on a foriegn fee, not just the normal conversion rate.  It really added up when I went to Finland once.)  Assuming they’d take Visa.  We paid for the photographer, officiant, venue like that over the phone.

@rmartinez0628:  Why not just take the money out in Europe from the ATMs.

Then you don’t walk around with loads of cash except from the ATM to the venue.

Congratulations on your upcoming wedding! I am getting married in Tuscany in September! I would recommend you actually do try to use Euros in cash for vendors. Some will take a 10% discount off total, so could be very worth it!
