Tuscany Italy Wedding Planners | Tuscan Wedding Team
Florence Town Italy Wedding Planner
Meet Debora and Simonetta two souls that created their own wedding planning company in 2017. After a long cooperation with a different brand, in 2023 we launched the “Tuscan Wedding Team” brand that is based in Florence town in Tuscany, Italy.
A note from the Tuscan Wedding Team!
We care a lot about listening to couples: for us, what matters is the couples’ vision, what they dream and envision for their wedding. We “build” the wedding, through our tested method, following what couples desire, independently from trends! Each wedding is different from the others, unique like each couple is. Tailor-made. We always say to our couples “Your wedding must represent you as a couple, as you are”. We always work keeping that in mind.
What made you get started in wedding planning?
When we started, we actually came from different important experiences, in different fields (fashion, tourism, incoming), that had been bringing us to deal with foreign people and different cultures for a very long time. Being wedding planners was our calling…! A dream that we started realizing step by step, studying and cooperating with experienced wedding professionals.
What wedding planning services do you offer?
We plan, direct, and coordinate bespoke destination weddings and events in Tuscany and in the best Italian Destinations for couples from all over the world. From the most traditional to the most extravagant wedding, of any kind and size, either with a legal, religious, or symbolic ceremony or including traditions from specific cultural heritages. Our package range includes Full planning, Partial planning, Day of coordination, and Legal paperwork.
What do you love most about being a wedding planner?
We love the planning creative process, which lasts a lot for each wedding (1 year average for destination weddings, sometimes even more)! During this long time we create, project, plan, always source the best vendors to realize our couples’ vision: working with so many talented professionals is another aspect we appreciate a lot about our job. Last but not least…the happiness of our couples is our happiness! We love seeing the emotion in brides’ and grooms’ eyes, when they live their dream. You cannot do this job without passion!
Where are you located and what do you love bout the location?
We’re located in Italy, specifically in Florence, in the Tuscany region. Our area offers so much for weddings, from cities of art to the amazing Tuscan countryside and coasts. There are options for anyone, with breathless views and surroundings! And, for those who love different areas in Italy, we can accomplish with any request.
Tell all about your team and what you love about working together!
The founders of the TWT are the two of us, Debora and Simonetta. We’ve got a team of +4 girls, professional wedding planners, and coordinators. We’re a team of women, strong, energic, and passionate! We firmly believe in teamwork. We always create great teams also on the wedding day, with the vendors on site, that we propose to couples among a range, selected through many years of work, based on the wedding style, the area, and always budget-wise.
Any tips you would like to offer for couples planning their wedding day?
The first tip is, to enjoy every single moment of the planning, every single step! Also: don’t hesitate to look for professional planning support, as every single decision impacts the final outcome of your wedding! Having an experienced guide, especially for destination weddings, will ensure an unforgettable experience for you and your guests, without any stress.
Tell me all about your favorite event that you’ve worked on. What it looked like, how you felt, themes, and anything else you can remember.
Uh this is really hard to say, it’s like asking to a mother who’s her favorite among her children… Let us just tell you about one of the latest ones done in 2023, to give you an idea of how destination weddings are: the wedding of Anna & Robert, from the US, in the Tuscan countryside, in an ancient Borgo (= Hamlet), close to Siena. Usually, destination weddings are celebrations with more days of events: they did a rehearsal dinner on day 1) with close family, a welcome pizza party on day 2) with their 100 guests, with a long table, decorated with checked tablecloths, aromatic plants, string lights and good music. On day 3), the Big Day: ceremony outdoors with the natural view of the Tuscan countryside as a backdrop, followed by an Italian-style cocktail, at sunset, with drinks like Prosecco and Spritz, accompanied by Tuscan specialties, cheeses, cold cuts, and other delicacies. Then, a great reception outdoors, with a rectangular top table for the couple and their close ones, plus round tables for all guests, with lots of lights and colors. Speeches, music, and songs, accompanied by delicious food, two pasta courses and one main, are very much appreciated by guests! After that, a great party with a DJ set, with music till 2 am and large participation of all guests. A special note on the Mother-Son dance: it was an original choreography, danced by the two, acclaimed by everybody!
