Symbolic wedding in Italy (Cinque Terre, Amalfi, Capri)

We are looking to have our symbolic wedding in Cinque Terre or Amalfi Coast or Capri in August 2012.

This would be a very intimate ceremony as it will be only the two of us ! Leaving our three young children with family at home.

With a Italian wedding planner the fees are over 1000 euro for photographer, 300 for hairdresser, 200 for make up & some 500 for set-up fees.... Set up of what since where just the two of us without any gathering !?

Did anyone worked this out by themself ?

Thanks,

Catherine

Hi Catherine,

These fees do not surprise me.

A few things you might need to check:

- do these prices include vat? Bear in mind vat rate can vary from 10% to 21% according to the type of service

- what does the wedding planner fee include? Does it cover an officiant to run the symbolic ceremony? Does it cover all the bookings they will do for you or the day coordination?

- Hairdresser and make up fees are pretty high in Italy, especially in turistic places like the ones you are looking at

I hope it helps!

Stefania
