TOP 5 REASONS TO MARRY IN CORSICA

Today on the blog, we would like to take you on a special and beautiful journey… somewhere where the sun is always up ; somewhere where the water meets the mountains; somewhere where you beautiful brides would love to say the big “I DO”.

And while we’re there you’re going to find out the top 5 reasons why you should marry in Corsica!

1. THE BEAUTY OF AN ISLAND. SEA AND MOUNTAINS

White sandy beaches, clear water but also the mountains, deserts and forests… Corsica’s landscapes are all amazing and pretty wild. Corsican’s have protected their terrain very well so there isn’t much construction and still lots of wild spots to discover.

2. PERFECTLY LOCATED

A quick short history background: Corsica is a French island located between the south east of France and Italy where the sun shines almost every day of the year. It is accessible by boat from France (Nice, Toulon or Marseille are the closest ports) or only 50 minutes by plane from Nice and 90 minutes from Paris.

3. THE CULTURE

We had an amazing time traveling there and we learned a lot about Corsican culture. One thing that stood out for us was the fact that they have many vines all around the island, it is worth taking to the road, discovering beautiful landscapes and tasting great flavours. You could not get married in Corsica without your guests sampling this typical food which make Corsican people so proud.You should also definitely hear their music and/or have musicians at your wedding. There are many places where you will meet with musicians (most of the time guitar and voice) who will sing old songs which are 100% part of their culture and history.

4. HOLIDAY FOR YOUR GUESTS

This island offers many possibilities to allow your guests to enjoy their holiday. Some of the best hiking spots from France are located in Corsica, and renting a bike or a quad bike for the day is a good way to explore the island. For those who would prefer the water they can have lunch or dinner on the beach, rent a boat for a day and go scuba diving. They can also do shopping or music festivals. We promise you there is no way that they will get bored!

5. SO MANY VENUE OPTIONS

A wedding in Corsica looks pretty much like a wedding in paradise. There are amazing villas with huge gardens, perfect to stay for a week and to organise a beautiful reception where your guests can feel at home.

If you expect many guests, private hotels are also very good options so you have quality and luxurious services for your guests and can have your wedding on the beach or around a swimming pool.

Beach weddings are very easy too. Many beach clubs provide this service, where you can hold a ceremony on the beach, arrive with a boat, have a cocktail with your feet in the sand and dance all night with a great feeling of freedom.

Behind the Scenes of a Wedding Planner

Behind the Scenes of a Wedding Planner

behind the scenes of a wedding planner

Ever wonder what it would be like to have the glamorous life of a wedding planner and helping cute couples tie the knot?

Well,  we have the inside scoop.

1. IT IS NOT LIKE YOU SEE IT IN THE MOVIES

You may have watched movies like the “Wedding Planner”, “27 Dresses”, or even “Revenge of the Bridesmaids”, which makes wedding planning seem a lot more glamorous and exciting than it actually is. 

You have to think of wedding planning as a business. In today’s age, you need to market your company and be on top of your social media game in order to get customers and keep up your reputation.

There is a lot of work involved and most of it is contacting different vendors and assisting with contracts and Banquet Event Orders. While you do get to see many different venues, you will learn to hate driving far distances as part of your work. Also, I hate to break it to you but you will most likely not be at the cake tasting with your clients. You will direct them where to go, set up the appointment, and then they will report to you later on which cake they chose.

2. CONNECTIONS ARE NEEDED

Just like any business, your success relies on your connections. In the wedding planning world, everyone begins to know everyone in the industry. You have to be familiar with all of the different locations in your area, wineries, caterers, bakers, florists, DJs, and tent rental companies in the area.
Over time, you will get to know the work method of all these different places and attend a lot of open houses and bridal shows. Bridal show season will make you very busy, especially on weekends.
So connections are essential in this business. You have to know managers, you have to know different people at the city hall, you hav eto get different permits so wedding planning involvs a lot of logistics 🙂 sorry 🙂

3. WEDDING PLANNING IS NOT FOR EVERYONE

Let’s be honest here: wedding planning business s not for everyone. Not every old stay-at-home-mom can do this job. 
First of all, you need to be a planner. If you’re not an organized person, you will never be able to put together a whole wedding, never mind juggling 4 or 5 weddings at once. Your job is to make sure your clients are on the right timeline in wedding planning and keep track of all the details for them. In addition, your company will not be just wedding planning but corporate events, too.  You need to have a strong, take-charge personality in this business because you’re going to have to be the go-to person who organizes the bridal party, wedding rehearsal, setup, and clean-up on the wedding day. Lastly, you need to be able to give advice to your couples, which brings me to my next point.

4. YOU WEAR MANY HATS

This business require wearing many different hats. The biggest thing we learned during the many years we have done this is we often have to play couples counselor. Many times, wedding planning brings up arguments between couples and as the wedding planner, you have to help them compromise. You have to be the mediator with mothers trying to take charge, divorced parents not agreeing to sit near each other, and bridesmaids being difficult. Your job is to stand up for the bride and groom since it is their day.

At the end of the night, your job still isn’t done as you have to make sure the clients tip and the venue is properly cleaned up before you leave.

Our Advice on How to Create a Luxury Wedding in 2019

Our Advice on How to Create a Luxury Wedding in 2019

OUR ADVICE ON HOW TO CREATE A LUXURY WEDDING IN 2019

We have worked and planed hundreds of weddings: small ones, big ones, abroad, in Monaco, you name it. But what we are good at is planning luxury weddings. And we want to share with you some of our top tips on how to create your own luxury wedding this year.

SOURCE YOUR DETAILS AHEAD

Our first tip on planning your luxury wedding is to consider your bespoke details fairly early. Mainly because a luxury wedding often include a few really special details: handmade wedding stationery, locally sourced flowers and even handmade table decorations.

Creating bespoke pieces takes time, especially when they are being made in volume. Start searching for your supplier/artist early on and ask to see samples to check the quality and materials in advance if possible. Once you’ve found what you’re looking for, get your order in to allow plenty of time and avoid any kind of rush which can result in poor attention to detail.

TRY AND TASTE EVERYTHING BEFORE YOU COMMIT

This luxury detail is a hit or miss. When planning a wedding the food and the drinks say a lot about how luxe does it feel. You got to hit this just right. Not only do wedding guests really look forward to a lovely sit down meal, they also need quality sustenance to help them thoroughly enjoy the day.
Because of this, I always recommend trying anything you might provide to your guests on the day before saying yes.

CONSIDER WORKING WITH A LUXURY WEDDING PLANNER

Here at Avalon Events Organisation we have a lot of couples who juggle life and full time careers and most of them rely on us exclusively to help them with anything that has to do with wedding planning and details that are involved. In deciding to work with a luxury wedding planner you can free up a lot of time for yourself, while also being confident that your planner has experience in the luxury market and connections with premium suppliers.
If you are looking for more information on weddings and planning your perfect day give us a call or send us an email and we would be more than honored to help you out! We are always available for you!

WHY CASTLES MAKE THE MOST INCREDIBLE VENUES

WHY CASTLES MAKE THE MOST INCREDIBLE VENUES

WHY CASTLES MAKE THE MOST INCREDIBLE VENUES

So let’s all agree to this fact: you don’t need to be a history fan to appreciate old buildings, I mean who doesn’t love castles?

We personally think that castles make for the most perfect wedding venue and we are going to look into just why these structures could be the most incredible location in which to say I do!

 

THE HISTORY

Castles have a rich past of historical figures, documented events and treasured antiques that make them a fascinating yet beautiful setting to hold a wedding. A castle wedding will be the talk of your guests for years to come, not to mention a destination wedding to a beautiful histpric place abroad.

INCREDIBLE LANDSCAPE

We do love all of our brides who decide on a castle theme wedding. It makes it so easier to decorate, so easy to manage the whole event in one amazing/incredible/jaw-drapping grounds.

A castle can make the perfect backdrop to reception drinks, stunning wedding photography portraits, fun and games or simply kicking back in the evening and soaking up the atmosphere.

EXTENSIVE ACCOMMODATION

Castles do offer more than just a wedding or a special event place, which means more choice, more flexibility and more potential to really make your stamp on your wedding. No two castle weddings are the same thanks to their numerous ceremony and reception locations.
