3 Reasons to Hire a Wedding Planner in the South of France

The South of France is one of the most romantic places on earth. From majestic chateaus and breath-taking vineyards to beautiful sands by the warm Mediterranean sea, the South of France is home to a stunning selection of venues for destination weddings.

From a rustic ceremony in a vineyard in Cannes, celebrating your wedding reception underneath the stars, to a wedding on the beach in Monte-Carlo, followed by setting off for your honeymoon on a yacht. The main challenge in organising an overseas wedding is often the distance. This can lead to difficulty in finding your perfect venue, challenges in coordinating and communicating with vendors, amongst other challenges.

For a stress free wedding, it is best to hire a wedding planner with experience of planning weddings in the South of France. Here are just a few reasons why.

Professional wedding planners know the legalities in the South of France.

Arranging the required paperwork to get married in France is quite complex. It’s made more difficult for non-residents who do not have a parent living in France. Professional French Riviera wedding planners are familiar with the requirements, procedures and other legalities related to getting married in France. They can guide you through all the documentation needed, the residency required and obtaining the needed certificates.

South of France wedding planners have the needed resources and connections.

Wedding planners who regularly work in the South of France know the most trusted vendors and the most beautiful locations in the area. Much of this knowledge comes from connections which planners have built up over years as well as experience of planning weddings with similar challenges, and understanding what will work best for couples given the location.

Truly professional wedding planners are used to handling unexpected problems.

Professional, experienced wedding planners also have experience in handling unforeseen complications. It is their job to plan for the unexpected and be prepared for this. Destination weddings such as those in the South of France are logistically more difficult and with this comes increased chances of complications, even with the most detailed planning. Having an experienced planner on board means that if such complications occur you will be able to concentrate on enjoying your wedding whilst your planner takes care of everything behind the scenes.

Planning your wedding should be a once in a lifetime experience, and memorable for all the right reasons. Hiring a professional destination wedding planner with experience of planning in the South of France ensures you have someone on hand to take care of everything and enjoy your wedding experience from start to finish.
