Get married in Paris: an Eiffel Tower wedding

Today, it is the first snow in Paris… So I want to write you about Amber and Ryan small wedding in Paris when the weather was still sunny. They got married near the Eiffel Tower for a romantic sunny day!

Amber and Ryan came from the United States for their destination wedding in Paris. We had been planning and preparing their beautiful day since a few months. Paris had welcome them with an incredible sunny day, perfect conditions for their ceremony near the Eiffel Tower.

The first contact with DVV Events…

As you may know, a lot of our clients contact us through our blog Getting Married in Paris; that’s the best way to start your destination wedding planning with me. And that’s what Amber and Ryan did. They send us a message through our blog and that’s how the adventure began.

A wedding with the Eiffel Tower as the special guest

Amber and Ryan had one leading word: the Eiffel Tower. They really wanted to have the Eiffel Tower as a special guest of their wedding in Paris and maybe as their main witness.

Getting Married in Paris - Eiffel Tower

Their main idea was to have a beautiful ceremony with views over the Eiffel Tower. As they will be only few guests, the idea of having the ceremony outside was possible if the weather will have been clever with us. To protect the wedding, we decided to plan their outside ceremony with a second option in case of rain. September is one of the most beautiful month to get married in Paris (less crowd, still beautiful weather,…) and we had the chance to plan their ceremony in a secret spot in the Eiffel Tower garden itself! A private spot with a lot of intimacy which was perfect for their wedding in Paris. We had an incredible view over the Eiffel Tower as we were just behind the Parisian monument. What else could we ask?

Kiss Paris - Get married in Paris

A beautiful wedding reception in a private mansion…

After this beautiful and sunny ceremony and after taking some pictures in the docks for example, it was time to discover the wedding venue chosen by our couple for their wedding dinner in Paris.

Amber and Ryan fall in love with a private mansion very near the Eiffel Tower and a special room of this venue. The venue is composed of several rooms, a restaurant and a beautiful garden. In our first idea with the couple, we wanted to plan the ceremony in the garden of the venue. However, the garden’s venue didn’t have a real view over the Eiffel Tower. That’s why, Amber and Ryan had skipped this idea and planned their ceremony in the Eiffel Tower garden.

Their wedding room was a beautiful wedding room with a typical Parisian style decoration and an incredible candelabra which illuminated the place. Amber and Ryan wanted to have a big rectangular table with a lot of flowers and candles. Thanks to our florist designer Reflets Fleurs, we planned an incredible scenography for their dinner shot by Rosina Prod.

Each guest had the opportunity to choose their own menu before the wedding to enjoy as much as possible the wedding dinner in Paris.

We had an incredible time with Amber and Ryan planning their destination wedding in Paris and they were absolutely gorgeous and very in love in our City of Love…

What about you?

If you are planning to get married in Paris, don’t hesitate a second. Paris has a lot of possibilities for your elopement or wedding.

Don’t hesitate to contact me for more information, I will be thrilled to help you… See you in Paris?

Wendy and Aaron: their trip to Paris to prepare their wedding

September 7th 2018…

Two beautiful souls are going to plan their wedding in Paris and we have the honour to help them to prepare one of the most beautiful day of their lives. Sabrina will also be the celebrant of their ceremony so we are even more excited about it!

Wendy and Aaron decided to send us an e-mail after visiting our blog “Getting Married in Paris”. They were looking for a wedding-planner in Paris as they really want to plan their destination wedding in Paris, a city they love so much. We had send them our proposal for their wedding and they have decided to give us their trust… What an incredible trip together!

wedding in Paris Wendy and Aaron 4

They planned a trip to Paris last September to meet us and to visit all their providers and taste the caterer of course (one of the best moment of the planning… French gastronomy and wines…. Yummmmyyyy). It was really a good idea to plan this trip a year before their wedding because we had the opportunity to have the same conditions as it will be for their real wedding such as the weather (even if it is a little bit unpredictable in France and even more in Paris), the places with turists, …  If you have the opportunity to plan a trip to Paris even if it is months before, it is always a good idea. However, if you don’t have time to come to Paris, don’t worry… The surprise of your wedding in Paris will be even more amazing!

Wendy and Aaron have always been in love with Notre-Dame-de-Paris… How not to be in love with this place? The romanticism of the monument and its beautiful park, the Seine crossing the place and the little Isle called “Ile de la Cité” is so Parisian!

wedding in Paris Notre Dame

The day after their arrival, we have started to visit the wedding venues because the venue will decide the caterer. As you may know, in Paris, some places have their own caterers and some other not. The places that Wendy and Aaron have decided to visit have their own caterers as they were restaurants or private mansions. After two visits, they decided to stop the visits! Why? They have found their perfect venue for their wedding in Paris: a very cosy, gorgeous and Parisian restaurant with views over Notre-Dame-de-Paris and the district. The caterer was then the restaurant itself: a gastronomic typical French food and wines and champagne for their guests, to make them discover Paris… Also, a pianist will play during their cocktail: they fall in love with this idea of having some beautiful music played by a Professional pianist with a glass of a Champagne in one hand and a petit-four of Foie Gras on the other hand. What an incredible day they had and we had some much fun with them because as we always say: Planning your destination wedding in Paris has to be fun too!

You will ask me about the ceremony venue? The park of Notre-Dame will be the perfect place to celebrate their love of course 🙂

As the planning of the visits has been canceled because they found THEIR perfect place, we have time to meet their photographer in Paris. What they weren’t expected is that their photographer will start taking photos of them in Paris! It was not a sunny day but we had incredible views over the Eiffel Tower to not lose the day! Aren’t they gorgeous and happy?

8 Tips to Get Married in Paris

Today, we are going to share with you 8 tips to get married in Paris. A lot of you have asked us to give you some advices to get married in Paris and as Santa Claus came a few weeks ago, this is our gift! Don’t hesitate to comment and to share with us your other questions <3

1 – Choose a district in Paris

Our first advice: if you want to fully enjoy your wedding day in Paris, we advise you to choose a particular location in Paris. It is possible to get married in Montmartre and then, have your wedding lunch or dinner near Notre-Dame for example. But you will lose time in traffic, waiting for your wedding car and if you have guests, waiting for them,… We suggest you choose a district in Paris, the one you are in love and to enjoy each moment in it. A Parisian district is still an important part of Paris and you will find a lot of different locations, parks, venues, small streets,… for your ceremony, your lunch/diner and your shooting too!

8 tips to get married in Paris 3

2- Be careful with your wedding’s date

Indeed, this tip can seem too easy but let’s talk about it. Paris is a big city with a lot of small events and big events. Maybe an event will take place at your ceremony’s place which will have a big consequence on your D-Day.

Also, in France, each season has its own price. If you want to lower your budget, you should plan your ceremony during winter for example because venues, as they are less weddings as in summer, will give you a cheaper price for the rent. As well, they are some days during the year that are really more expensive than the others in the same season. For example, the New Year Eve. It is one of the most beautiful day of the year in Paris. However, all the vendors will ask you expensive or very expensive prices for the different services. If you want to take your budget lower, the date of your wedding is an important point.

3- Most of the venues in Paris have their own caterer

While you will be looking after your venue, you will notice that in Paris a lot of venues have their own caterer. You will only have the choice to choose your menu, so be careful! Don’t hesitate to look on social media if the caterer has good reviews. Having a wonderful venue is important but having an excellent dinner can be one of the most important part of your wedding.

Also, if you have a precise budget, some of the times, the caterer of the most beautiful places has expensive menus. Before signing with those places, ask for different menus to be sure their caterer will answer to your ideal menu.

4- Wines and Champagne

Yes, we could have talk about this in the caterer’s point. But we have decided to separate it. Why? Because you can decide to buy your own wines and champagne with some caterers. A part of them won’t accept to let you buy your alcohol drinks, even more if you have rent a restaurant or a hotel. Some other will apply what we called a “droit de bouchon” which is a tax on each bottle that will be served. It can be around 8 to 20€ per bottle!
Hopefully, you have caterers who will allow you to choose and buy your own wines and Champagne. Because, yes, we think that the couple has to have the possibility to choose each service of their wedding.

5- Sleeps for your guests

If you are planning a destination wedding, you will have to find sleeps for your guests so it will be easy for them to plan their trip to Paris. Also, they will be more relax if you give them the name of the hotel where everybody is going to stay.

In Paris, there are only a very few places where your guests will be able to sleep. We recommend you look for an hotel or a villa for your accommodation.

6- Dancing Party

In Paris, venues have restrictions about music. Most of the venues will propose you a rental until midnight or 2 am. If you want to have a big party, be careful with this point! Some of the Parisian venues will propose you to plan your party until 4 or 5 am with extra hours. The price will depend on each venue but the price of an extra-hour can start at 200€ to 800€ for example.
However, if you have a restricted budget for the venue, you can also decide to go on the suburbs of Paris where they are a lot of incredible venues too!

7- The Bridal Dress

If you have bought your bridal dress, the first question will be: “how will I transport my bridal dress?”. You have two possibilities. You can transport it in its slipcover with you in the cabin. The dress will be protected but it can be heavy if you have a voluminous dress. On the other hand, you can decide to transport it in a luggage. The dress will be protected and will only have to ask at your hotel for example to prepare it at their pressing service.

However, you can decide to buy it in Paris because we have a lot of different dress boutiques. This option can be a good idea but you have to come to Paris a few months before the wedding because you have to order it and make the dress be altered. Also, what about rent it in a dress boutique? It can be a very good option if you don’t want to travel with your dress!

8 tips to get married in Paris

 

8- Your Wedding-Planner

But if you want one advice, it will be this one: planning you destination wedding in Paris is a very important task. You will need the expertise and savoir-faire of a Parisian wedding-planner. You will be more relax during the planning and your D-Day will be as perfect you dreamed it! Don’t hesitate to contact me to talk about your wedding project in Paris, we will be delighted to help you!

A bientôt à Paris!

In a park, all over the Seine, near the Eiffel Tower (even if it sounds cliché, the place is absolutely stunning!),… The City will show you why there is not another city which can be named “the City of Love” than Paris.

Paris is gastronomy

The French gastronomy is well-known all over the world. In Paris, a lot of “Chefs” are famous for their excellent food. A lot of caterer in Paris will propose you menus created by important Chefs in Paris so you can have the most delicious food for your wedding lunch or diner.

Thanks to its history, Paris has a gorgeous old-architecture. The buildings have a really particular Haussmann- architecture who was a very important prefect during the XIXth century in Paris. The Parisian buildings are well-know all over the world. You will be able to rent a private mansion for your ceremony or your wedding.

You will also enjoy the differents parks of the City where you can easily plan your ceremony. In France, the parks are public spaces so there will be no problem for you to plan a beautiful ceremony. However, you won’t be able to rent a part of the park for your ceremony. If you need music or sound during your ceremony, you will have to ask for an authorization.

The iconic places of the City are also part of the wonderful architecture. The most iconic attractions such as the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre, the Arc de Triomphe, the district of Montmartre (one of the most romantic district in Paris, maybe the most romantic),… are famous all over the world.

The riverbanks of the Seine: a romantic spot in Paris

Today, I am going to talk you about one of my favorite places in Paris: the riverbanks of the Seine, well-known in Paris as Quais de Seine. I think it is one of the most romantic place to plan an elopement in Paris for example or your couple photoshoot session. You will have a beautiful view over the City and over some big monuments such as Notre Dame de Paris but it will also be an intimate place…

Where can I find the Riverbanks of the Seine?

The Quais de Seine are located in the very heart of Paris. You will find a lot of important and famous Parisian places: the Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame de Paris, the Louvre Museum,… But also the most beautiful bridges: the Bir-Hakeim Bridge, the Pont Alexandre III, the Pont des Arts and the Pont Neuf. The Seine crosses the historical Paris with the Ile de la Cité, the Medieval Castle of la Conciergerie or the Town Hall. From both sides of the Seine, you will have what Paris can give you as the most beautiful scenery to get married in Paris.

What can I do on the Quais de Seine?

Your Ceremony in Paris

If you want to elope in Paris, the riverbanks of the Seine are one of the most romantic and intimate place to get married in Paris. You will have the options between different places in the riverbanks of the Seine depending on which spot you like the most. If the district of Notre Dame inspires you, you will have a perfect spot to celebrate your ceremony in front of this Parisian Queen. If you are getting married in Paris with guests, it will depend a lot of how many guests you are inviting.
As it is a public space and with the Seine, it can be dangerous to plan your ceremony there. If you want to talk about it, don’t hesitate to contact me.

For your wedding in Paris, you can also decide to plan a lunch or dinner in a boat and have a cruise over the Seine to visit Paris in another way. Your guests will discover the most important and gorgeous Parisian monuments through the Seine. The cruise through the Seine is a perfect idea to plan an original and romantic reception for your wedding in Paris. Imagine: you and your guests with a glass of Champagne in front of the enlightened Eiffel Tower… Just GORGEOUS!!

The Parisian riverbanks are also the perfect place to plan a couple photoshoot for your elopement/wedding in Paris. There are small spots in front of beautiful monuments of Paris such as Notre-Dame de Paris, the Eiffel Tower or the Louvre which can be very intimate for a photoshoot and very romantic too in the heart of Paris!

Want to learn more about these places?
