4. If you have guests, make sure they can organize on their own
Even if you plan an intimate elopement or destination wedding in Paris, you might want to bring some guests but ensure they are autonomous. Otherwise, you will act as their trip planner while you are supposed to enjoy the most important day of your life. Bearing that Parisians speak French and do things differently than in the USA, your guests could need help in many ways. And you are not there to take care of them. I have seen many brides or grooms trying to please Uncle Joe or Aunt Annie, who arrived late to the wedding… Guests are fantastic to have but in small numbers! Let us know what is your choice in order to give the information to our celebrant and our photographer who will on site.
5. A French wedding coordinator is your best friend
Finally, our main suggestion would be to get a local wedding planner who speaks both English and French and knows the city because it’s their hometown. Eventually, you will save so much time and money by hiring a professional because they will know the pitfalls and the little secrets to make it a success without stressing you out on this special day.
Our advice to find a good one is to book one that is a real Parisian: not only someone who knows the city but also knows the culture and its way around. Ideally, someone who was born there. Also, find a planner that has at least ten years of experience. Many new bees joined the business in the last two years. Still, due to the popularity of elopements and destination weddings, they cannot have the experience of a senior planner.
