How to Plan Your Dream Destination Wedding in France

A French wedding planner is a precious help for navigating the complexities of planning from afar, especially if you are short of time and do not speak the language of the country you have chosen for your wedding. A local planner will be your key to unlocking the best local vendors, managing communications, staying within budget, and ensuring your day unfolds without a hitch.

Destination Wedding Planner: Takes charge of organising all aspects of your wedding. 

Wedding Styler: Crafts the visual theme and aesthetics of your celebration.

Wedding Coordinator: Oversees the logistics on your wedding day, keeping an eye on the timing and coordinating the vendors.

While these roles are distinct, a wedding planner in France will often, as part of her/his full package, offers to do the styling and coordination too. Therefore, it’s crucial you choose a wedding planner whose creative vision aligns with yours, unless you’re planning to hire a wedding styler separately.

Our selection of Chateau Bee Venues includes many properties with exceptional in-house wedding planners. Discover our destination wedding packages in France for more details:

If your chosen venue is a “dry hire” and doesn’t provide an in-house planner, fret not. The Chateau Bee Selection is your gateway to an elite network of English-speaking local wedding planners specialising in destination weddings in France, ready to bring your vision to life. Just contact us today for some free recommendations.

External destination wedding planners in France usually start at 6,000 euros for comprehensive planning services, including day-of coordination. Prices may vary with the planner’s expertise and reputation. Some planners may also charge a percentage of your wedding’s total budget as their fee. This common practice often correlates with the event’s scale and complexity.

We pride ourselves on offering free recommendations of wedding planners, if needed, and a commission-free venue search service, ensuring your journey to the altar is as smooth and straightforward as possible.
