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

Set the Date:

Depending on when you want to get married, choosing a wedding date can sometimes be more complicated than it seems. If you’re opting for an outdoor ceremony, you’ll want to make the most of the Riviera’s balmy summer weather, but you may also need to consider keeping your dates flexible during the summer season to ensure availability at your chosen venue. The good news is, once you set the date, everything else should then start falling into place.

“My French husband and I got married on the French Riviera in early September and the temperature was in the mid-30s on the day of our wedding. If you’re planning on getting married during the summer season, I would highly recommend checking that your chosen venue has air conditioning and/or fans to ensure that your guests are comfortable during the ceremony and reception.” Vicki

Fix your Budget:

Possibly the most important step when it comes to planning your big day, you’ll need to finalise your budget early on in order to confirm your reservations. Things to consider when fixing your budget include the number of guests attending, the time of year you want to get married and your catering/entertainment requirements. Whether you’re going all out or planning an intimate ceremony with just your closest family and friends, we can provide options for every budget to help match your spending requirements whilst enjoying the best day of your life.

“If finances allow, it’s definitely worth thinking about hiring a wedding planner - even just for the day of the wedding. It was a huge help to have someone else manage the schedule and solve problems on our wedding day, allowing us to host, celebrate and enjoy the evening with our guests instead.” Sarah

Pick a Theme:

Whether you’ve always dreamed of getting married in a fairy-tale castle, would like to go full Hollywood glam or are hoping for a boho chic wedding on a beach overlooking the Mediterranean, your perfect wedding should reflect your unique personality as a couple. From a laid back rustic atmosphere to modern minimalism or classic chic, once you’ve picked the theme for your big day, we can help you design the perfect ceremony as well as finding you the ideal venue to hold it in.

“My biggest piece of advice when planning a wedding in the French Riviera would definitely be not to spend so much time stressing about the big day that you forget why you are doing this in the first place. Things probably aren’t going to be 100% perfect and that’s okay, the little details are what will make your special day even more real and enjoyable, imperfections and all!” Sarah
