Once upon a time, a luxury wedding was something attainable only by an élite. Nowadays, it feels like it’s almost a common good that anyone can afford. But how do things stand, really?
We at Paolo Cicognani define ourselves as luxury wedding planners, so we know the topic and we care a lot about it. Here are the answers to a few questions that you might have in mind: dig into them if you’re dreaming of an event like no other!
What does a luxury wedding entail?
When you misuse a word such as “luxury”, you take away its power and set yourself up for disappointment – that’s why we think it’s so important to set a standard for it, especially in the wedding industry.
We believe that this kind of event has three main components:
- each detail is designed with extreme care and love for beauty, following your specific desires and individual taste;
- you are treated like royalty and will feel like a movie star, thanks to the exclusive venue, stunning scenery and unique experience – documented through high-quality photos and videos that will preserve your memory of that day;
- there is no space for compromise and no price it’s too high: you’re not spending money, you’re investing it into the luxury wedding of your dreams.
These are the ingredients for a once-in-a-lifetime celebration, to live with emotional involvement and cherish forever.
Can exclusive Italy weddings be affordable?
We have just said that a truly luxury wedding is priceless – but maybe you’re wondering if you can have your own kind of sumptuousness at an affordable cost.
The answer is: yes, as long as you’re not looking for a bargain price and choose the right suppliers – especially the wedding planner.
Accessible luxury is an option and relies on a deep knowledge of the territory – Italy, in this specific scenario – and its vendors. Beware of those who try to sell you an ordinary, pre-packaged event for a cheap price though: that’s surely going to disappoint you.
A tailor-made, timeless event can’t be cheap, we’re afraid. But it can be cost-effective, especially if you opt for an intimate celebration.
Luxury wedding… or elopement?
An elopement is a wedding with just a few selected guests… or even none!
Nothing says luxury more than an event where every single moment is precisely the way you – and only you – want it. From the choice of the wedding venue to the catering, from the flower design to the music: everything will be just as you’ve always dreamed of, with no space for compromise. A very special treat that you’ll never forget.
The secret for your perfect, luxurious event
To be fair, there’s only one secret behind an outstanding event: the choice of the right wedding planner.
Someone who knows all of the venues in his area, even the most hidden gems. Someone who has the ability to enhance the setting and to pay attention to those details that make a difference. Someone who can turn a celebration into something magical, striking the right chords for you and your guests.
At Paolo Cicognani we do a lot of research, visiting off-the-beaten-path locations and meeting a lot of vendors in the wedding industry in order to find the best ones. Then we listen to your wishes and needs, and plan a luxury wedding that makes your dreams come true. Get in touch with us now, and live happily ever after.
