Very nice to meet you all on here. I’ve recently just started to plan our wedding and have decided to do Italy. We want Tuscany, Florence, Lucca or Sicily. If we can afford Amalfi Coast, that would be a plus. We just know we love Italy! Am just wondering if there’s any bees out there who were able to pull it off under $20,000?
Can you please share your pictures, wedding planner, venues, or any contact infos that would help!
Looking forward to hearing from you all!
PS $20,000 meaning just for the venue, caterer, wedding planner, food, drinks, open bar, entertainment (stereos, mic, band, etc..)

amanda830 : Does 20K include flight tickets from where you live? Where do you live? Dress?

My wedding is coming in at about 21,000 for the above but I have splurged on a wedding planner at 10% outside of that. We are getting married in a beautiful castle with a sea view on the east coast of Italy. The planner is based in London and works between UK and Italy and has sorted out all the paper work which would have been impossible for me. It turns out all the people in the townhalls dont speak a word of english and need repeated visits to get a number of documents filled out – I couldnt have managed without her!
I am working with Dominique from http://www.designmyitalianwedding.com and coldn’t reccommend highly enough
If you are looking to do it yourself – I would definitely fly out to see venues and speak to the vendors 🙂
Hope that helps!!
