Hi brides to be!
Don't know if anyone is considering Italy. . .Today is our five year wedding anniversary and we were just talking about our unforgettable experience in Italy and I wanted to share it with others in the States who may be looking for a hassle-free wedding and beautiful locale in Italy.
We had our worries about planning a wedding long distance but we wanted something affordable and memorable close to Venice. I contacted some wedding planning services but the price tags were $10,000+. Thankfully, we found Villa Luppis through military family stationed nearby at Aviano Air Force Base.
From the start, the Villa Luppis staff communicated color, food, cake, seating, and music options via email and mail. They speak fluent English. We had nearly 50 guests fly from the States and stay at the Villa. Everyone was floored by the fairytale setting- Napoleon Bonaparte's summer home- and beautiful grounds and fountains. It's picture perfect. We felt like royalty and so did our guests. We had a 7 course meal (yes 7!) and it was the highest quality cuisine- think Top Chef- from stuffed conch shells to truffle pasta. Servers served the wine and food- which in the US is unheard of unless you pay top dollar. Our wedding was a fraction of the price it would have been in the States. Food and wine doesn't carry the price tag in Italy as it does in the States and we were out of the door under $5,000. I can't say enough good things and I just wish I could get the word out to others in the States looking for a hassle-free, unforgettable wedding.
You can search for their website and contact them- it is definitely an option worth considering.
