Jade & John’s Testimonial…
We decided in January that we wanted to get married abroad. We’d been to many places in Italy, and love everything about the country. The lake region was somewhere we’d not tried so thought it maybe an option for somewhere to marry. After 2 months of research with numerous wedding planners it was starting to become stressful (and we hadn’t even booked anything)! One evening I came across Weddingbox.
Everything started to become easier and Sally at Weddingbox was extremely quick & concise in her responses. We met up with Sally in March and she met us at our hotel and took us to all the venues we’d picked out as ones we wanted to visit. This was 200 euros (and well worth doing) we got the money back as we decided to book with her. For us, booking through weddingbox was the best choice we made.
Sally is English but lives in Lake Como. We had previously found that many of the Italian suppliers wouldn’t respond for a week or sometimes even longer – they’re just so laid back – very nice, if you’re not trying to plan a wedding!!! I’m extremely organised myself so waiting for responses when you’re trying to organise such a big event and needing to know costs is too much for me! That’s why Weddingbox was perfect for us! If i could speak Italian and understood the legalities of getting married in Italy i may have attempted to plan it myself. however, i don’t speak the lingo & didnt know what paperwork was required or when…. Sally did! She was prompt in her responses and keeping us informed with bookings. She understood our requirements and had a good base of suppliers who we really couldn’t fault. Sally helped us with the majority of aspects of planning. I think that over the course of a year we exchanged over 1000 emails with Sally- if it was a problem, she never let on!! She has a great sense of humour and nothing is a problem. We married in May this year( the first wedding of the year!) we met Gemma who joined Weddingbox in Spring. Whilst we didn’t communicate as much with Gemma we met her the day before the wedding and she did a fantastic job on the day- they both did. If you’re thinking of getting married in Lake Como and stuck for a wedding planner I 100% recommend Weddingbox.
