stop dreaming, start planning
Perugia, Assisi and Lake Trasimeno
Often referred to as the green heart of the country, Umbria is famous for its medieval hilltop towns, dense forests and local cuisine, especially wines and truffles. The hilly Umbrian landscape is a real treat for the eye. Perugia, Gubbio, Assisi but also small villages such as Deruta with its ceramics, Bettona or Corciano and the entire Lake Trasimeno area are enchanting places in which to get married, in which to declare to one’s beloved the fateful words: ‘yes, I do’.
Foligno, Spoleto and Valnerina
If you decide to get married in Foligno, Spoleto or Valnerina, your wedding will be a little bit greener. We recommend this destination if you like visiting villages, walking in nature and enjoying an authentic territory far from the usual tourist circuits. Here, too, you will be able to admire beautiful villages and you will also have the opportunity to do some outdoor sports, as well as enjoy Umbria’s most famous wine cellars between Bevagna and Montefalco.
Orvieto – Todi
Around Orvieto and Todi there are beautiful villages nestled in the mountains discovering the southern part of Umbria. Cliffs and towns are tinged with ochre as the last sun shines on this extreme western edge of Umbria, with rich vegetation framing the waters. The last Etruscan city to fall under the hegemony of Rome, Orvieto is one of the region’s centres richest in history. Its treasures should be discovered little by little as well as its cuisine, rich in dishes with intense flavours.
Terni is famous for the Marmore Falls. However, it is also worth taking a walk in the small villages not far from the city such as Amelia or San Gemini and Acquasparta. The waterfall can be visited by no less than five hiking trails, the oldest 900-metre-long passage also passes by the ‘Lovers’ Balcony‘. The Lovers’ Balcony is a favourite spot for engaged couples, and because, after all, the Marmore Falls is linked to the myth of St Valentine, the first bishop of Terni and protector of lovers all over the world. A truly magical place in which to seal one’s love.
What are the basic steps for organising a destination wedding in Umbria
The first thing to do when organising a destination wedding in Umbria is certainly to choose a local Wedding Planner who is familiar with the area, the Umbria venues and all the suppliers in the sector. Having a professional figure is indispensable to guide you through all the stages of organising your wedding, especially given the distance that makes it physically impossible for you to follow everything closely, you need to have a trusted person on site who knows how to give you the best advice.
A timeline of things to do, organising transfers, a list of guests and their dietary requirements, due dates for various payments, paperwork, organising expériences and gifts for your guests are just some of the things a Wedding Planner can organise for you.
Destination Wedding Planner Umbria
Umbria is a much sought-after destination for getting married and, because of this, if you are thinking of saying “yes, I do” in the city that was the cradle of the Italian Renaissance you will need a Destination Wedding Planner. Massara Events, thanks to careful planning, can realise a top-notch wedding through comprehensive advice on every aspect of the day.
The wedding is planned every single moment of the day, starting from the requests presented by the client and the budget, providing a range of services to personalise the ceremony and wedding reception and make them unique.
The suppliers proposed are first-rate, selected over years of work: photo and video services, make-up, car rental, transfers, guest reception, concierge arrangements, floral decorations, choice of catering and much more. Always maintaining an elegant and consistent thread to create a happy and memorable day.
Your wedding day is one of the happiest days of your life, so every piece has to fit together perfectly and a memorable day cannot be achieved without the impeccable organisation that only a professional Wedding Planner can provide.
Why do you need a Wedding Planner
A professional, who has made wedding planning his or her profession, helps you make seemingly simple decisions that make a big difference in the big picture. Given the excitement of organising your wedding, it is easy to come across unexpected planning mistakes or serious problems that go unnoticed.
A Wedding Planner has an overview of the entire event so will be able to understand the bride and groom’s tastes, guide and advise on all aspects.
A less exciting but equally important aspect is the budget. Wedding Planners not only know what budget is available, they also know which parts of the budget need to be broken down into items, enabling them to keep track of all ongoing changes and provide timely and detailed reports.
In addition, Wedding Planner will offer a wide range of suppliers, providing the best professionals selected over many years of collaboration and those that best suit the atmosphere of the wedding.
In the end, when the big day arrives, the Wedding Planner will coordinate with every supplier at every stage of the wedding (before, after, during) to ensure that everything is synchronised and that any last-minute problems are handled promptly.
How long does it take to organise a wedding
On average, it takes 12 months to prepare for a wedding, whether with an official ceremony or a symbolic ceremony. Moving ahead is not wrong, if one wants to take things slowly, but it is not strictly necessary. Much depends on the expectations of the bride and groom, but be aware that the result depends above all on what you want.
Of course, if you want to organise a reception in a farmhouse or a dream villa, it is almost impossible to book a month in advance… so you will have to go somewhere less known or less renowned.
It takes at least six months to plan a wedding day worthy of the name. That is why it is not advisable to shorten the time to plan your wedding to ensure the best day of your life. Even with a Destination Wedding Planner that cuts your time in half and optimises your choices but cannot always work miracles.
How much does it cost to organise a wedding
Fixed costs cannot be defined or predicted when planning a wedding. Each event has many variables, including the number of participants. Rather, it is best to consider the available budget and use it to determine the initial budget allocation that realistically considers the spouse’s expectations.
Other factors that affect the cost of a wedding are the location, the date chosen, the quantity and quality of the various services offered by the suppliers involved in the event, and the types of services offered at the reception.
Determining a budget is definitely the starting point for wedding planning. The next step is to divide it proportionally and realistically. In this division, it is important to note that for a wedding (large or small) to be successful and appreciated by guests, the various areas involved must be proportionate and in harmony with each other.
