Hi Friend!

Welcome, we’re hoping you’re here because you’re considering a stunning destination wedding with all your dearest family and friends.  Maybe you’re considering Europe?  Right now Europe is HOT when it comes to destination weddings. But, how much is a stunning European destination wedding going to cost you? The answer might surprise you.  

Pricing for a European destination wedding varies greatly by location, so our destination wedding team, led by Mart-Mari has broken it down in a price comparison between Italy and Greece.  We’re hoping that this provides some clarity in the process, to get your dreams headed in the right direction.  All pricing below is based on a guest count of 50. Please note, these are just estimates and not guaranteed pricing.

We have a dedicated team of fabulous European planners located IN Europe, so you’re not flying a planner over, who’s completely new to the area.  This provides the highest level of service, along with the very best price.  If you’re ready to dive in, just inquire here, and we’ll get you connected.
