Do you work only in Tuscany?
Tuscany is for sure the most requested area of Italy, but that does not mean all beautiful venues are only here! Italy is an amazing place to find beauty in every corner.
All venues Magnolia works with are rigidly selected among the most unique and experienced, most of them out of the common commercial selections you may find online, my list is endless from Tuscany, to Sicily, from Sardinia to Umbria and many incredible areas that you will fall in love with.
Drop me a message and we can schedule the first consultation on Skype to talk about your project.
Do you have your own team of trusted vendors?
I do have a portfolio of many selected talented and highly trusted suppliers on each type of service and venues. I usually work with suppliers I can understand the quality as qualified and experienced ones of the wedding industry. I cannot suggest you someone who is not a professional, who has zero experience or that I have doubts on. The result of your wedding is strictly linked to this aspect and it’s important to get into professional hands. Planning a wedding is not based on a simple research on Google for some contacts, what I bring to the table is my long experience and relationship with your future wedding staff, that what gets us to the outstanding result.
Are you charging a flat fee or a percentage fee?
I charge a flat fee for my services. This fee is based on the project: number of guests, number of days involved, complexity of the project and how many assistants I may need to plan, coordinate and hostess the event perfectly to fulfil your dreams. This means it’s of the utmost importance to have a preliminary and totally complimentary call to talk together about your project and expectations.
Do you have assistants and planners to help you?
I do have a business assistant and a planning assistant to help me managing all the projects smoothly, a design and production team, junior and senior coordinators and Stewarts/hostesses for the day, but I’m the one who will answer your requests, who will listen to your dreams and needs, who will sort out the best solution and will help you throughout the wedding organization process. I’m the one you’ll relate to for all the period of organization and the only responsible for your wedding day. It’s me you get the chance to trust from the very first email.
How many hours of communications do we get with your service?
Unlimited emails and communications. I don’t believe in restricting our amazing relationship in few hours and emails. The first consultation is no time limitation and completely complimentary.
How many visits can I organize in Italy to meet you, visit the venue, do the tastings etc?
Depending on the project I will suggest you when to visit and what we need to do together, but you are always welcome to visit when you need and prefer.
Can you help us with partial planning or just a few researches?
To guarantee you to deliver your dream and go beyond your expectations, I need to be completely responsible and in control of the event, working with you on all aspects, but knowing first hand who is working on it and how it’s planned from Day 1. For this reason I have decided to assist only with a Full Planning service all my couples.
Is the Design service a personalized one?
Sure! The wedding we plan together is “your wedding” that means that no inspirational photo found on Instagram or Pinterest can do it justice. It’s not enough to copy a photo and it’s the very first important mistake that many couples do: when you base your event on the style of another one, you do not just copy the type of flowers or set up, you copy their personalities and their expectations that of course will never be yours. Be unique and true to yourself is the best choice, that first step to lead you to an unforgettable event for you and your guests.
