Make a timeline:

As with any big event, the earlier you start to plan, the more time you’ll have to organise all those little details which will make your big day so special. We recommend planning your French Riviera wedding around a year in advance if possible to ensure you have plenty of time but we also know that sometimes time is of the essence so if necessary we can help you make decisions and keep you on track with the planning process.

“I’m American and I married my French husband in Ramatuelle in 2018. My best piece of advice is if you are having a civil ceremony, try to get your paperwork together as soon as possible, especially if you are a foreign citizen. You may need to travel to your consulate or order copies of your birth certificate from your home country before having them translated into French. I didn’t wait until the last minute, but I do wish I had started getting everything together earlier.” Sarah
