- Wedding: January 2016
Yes! I will be getting an event coordinator, but for the most part I want to plan the vow renewal. I’m very resourceful and planning is my day job….just not in Paris! :). My husband and I will be renewing our vows in Paris on our 10 year wedding anniversary. We didnt have the chance to celebrate our wedding day, so this will be our celebration…no better way than to say “I do Again!” in the most romantic city in the world!
What I’m looking for…
Venue: It must be inside, due to the winter. I would love something small, unique, and charming…that will allow lots of candles! I don’t want the venue to be the centerpiece of the renewal but a romantic enhancement of the ceremony. I was thinking about an old wine cellar, old small chapel, …something off the beaten path of the usual venues. I will have a photo tour of the hotspots to capture the magic of Paris, but really would like the ceremony to be simple and romantic. Ideas?
Reception: This is hard…my husband and I aren’t one for DJs and dancing…plus it is a small group. Any ideas on what to do after the ceremony? I was thinking dinner on the Eiffle Tower? They take reservations up to 25 people. Or cocktails and cakes at a Panoramic Bar? I want to keep it intimate but also entertaining. Thoughts? Ideas?
Transportation: How should I arrange for the guests to get from venue to venue? Should I just let them figure it out, or because it is a different country…make it easier by coordinating transportation for them? Thoughts?
If you have any suggestions, please let me know! Thank you.
