paris destination weddings - rendez-vous in paris - conclusion

Today concludes my interview with Heather, Owner, Wedding and Event Planner of Rendez-vous in Paris. Time to get down the nitty gritty about what it takes to pull this off.

Q - Are marriages performed in France recognized in the US or do you have to get married here and then the wedding there is more ceremonial?

If you thought finding the love of your life was going to be the hard part, you might be disappointed by all the red tape you need to untangle before tying the knot in this gorgeous country. If you’ve chosen la France as your dream wedding destination (and rightly so!!), your next step should be to contact an onsite wedding planner! But if you're confident your tante in Toulon and your cousine in Cannes are going to be able to take care of all the dĂ©coration details, let me at least give you some tips on how to efficiently fulfill the marriage requirements necessary to have the wedding of your dreams in France.

In the interest of time and space, please read the  article I've written for details on this topic.

Q - Are there any traditional differences in how a wedding ceremony is done in France?

American weddings are precise, the timing is "right-on" and things are very much "planned-out". French weddings are family events, hosted by the couple or their family, and therefore mishaps are tolerated, and expectations are oriented around the quality of the food and wine, and less around the perfection or the organization of the day

Q - What makes your service special/different from other wedding planners in Paris?  

Rendez-vous in Paris is a luxury services company, based in Paris. A full service Wedding & Event Planing Agency, we specialize in designing unique fĂȘtes for a discerning international clientele in Paris and all over France.  Our services are made-to-measure; we create your wedding the way you envision it, and establish our fees based on a percentage of the budget we've managed.

Our percentages are degressive, based on your budget (ie higher the budget, lower the percentage fee), and encompass all services needed. Wedding Planning Services are very personal, and couples often need hands-on help & reassurance. We spend a lot of time with each couple, and contrary to other French companies, we are available day & night for phone consultations.

Our clients come from Australia, Dubai, England, Ireland, and all over the US, and we love working with such a variety of cultures and couples on the most important day of their lives!

Thank You Heather for all of the helpful information!
