Dream Weddings By Francesca Resciniti
My wedding planning agency was established in 2009 and is based in Rome.
With an eye to details you didn’t even think were possible and a wealth of local experience, I offer customized services providing seamless support for couples who are planning their destination weddings in Italy.
My team specializes in weddings in Rome, Tuscany, Amalfi Coast, and Cinque Terre, but we will be happy to travel to any other worldwide destination to make your dreams come true.
Our main goal is to take all the unnecessary stress out of the planning of your Special Day, making you save precious time and money, and ensuring an unforgettable experience to you and your beloved guests.
With a comprehensive start-to-finish service, our packages include consultancy to budgeting, vendor selection and negotiation of their contracts, paperwork management, design of the look and feel of your wedding, day-of coordination and logistics handling to ensure smooth flow of your Big Day, and also assistance with creating exciting itineraries of activities to surround your guests’ staying in our beautiful country.
My team also boasts experienced wedding celebrants speaking English, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Russian, and German, so we will be more than happy to provide you tips and tailor-made solutions on how to organize a romantic ceremony with a fresh approach in a stylish way.
From intimate elopements to big celebrations, we are always honored and super excited to play a key part in such an important day in our couples’ lives; that’s why we prioritize getting to know your unique needs from our first call/meeting so that your wedding reflects your personalities and preferences.
If you are asking yourselves the one-million-dollar question “Why should I hire you as my wedding planner?”, here’s a list of my top 5 answers:
I can be your personal directory of recommendations in terms of vendors, venues, and styles; I can set you up with exclusive deals thanks to my established relationships with local pros; I can do the “heavy work” such as narrowing each category of suppliers, scheduling appointments, and solving last minute issues; I get down to the nitty-gritty when it comes to plan a wedding and always offer options that match your preferences; and above all because I LOVE my job and I strive to give each of my couples exactly the wedding they have been dreaming of for a lifetime!
1. What kind of packages do you offer?
I offer tailor-made packages based on my couples’ needs, from paperwork management to day-of coordination. Of course, I prefer dealing with all the aspects of the planning, because the process of organizing a destination wedding might be overwhelming and requires a long experience in the field, and lots of time to review contracts, coordinate vendors, create a timeline, and prevent many dangerous mistakes that risk to ruin what should be one of the best days of your life.
2. Will you help us with the overall vision of our wedding?
Yes, I will. Being a Wedding Planner & Wedding Designer, I deal every day with color palettes, decor, design elements, themes, and lighting. My aim is to bring my couples’ ideas to fruition, thanks to the tools I have to make every wedding a well-styled and one-of-a-kind event.
3. How many weddings do you usually work on at the same time?
I don’t take more than 30 weddings per year, as I think every couple deserves my full attention during the planning process. On their wedding week, I always meet the bride and groom before their Special Day for a final briefing.
4. How do you select vendors?
In almost 10 years of experience in the wedding field, I have established strong relationships with many suppliers coming from all around Italy and also from abroad. That’s why I always suggest the ones I think are more appropriate based on my couples needs. Of course, I am open to working with pros selected by the bride and groom, but I can’t guarantee their level of professionalism if I don’t know them, of course.
5. When do you usually get to the venue on the wedding day?
As a Wedding Coordinator, I am logistically focused on coordinating arrival, delivery and set up times of all vendors, so I always arrive at the venue many hours prior to the ceremony time (usually at 11.00 if the wedding is in the afternoon, and at 7ish if it’s in the morning). If necessary, I am open to meeting the couple at the venue the day before the wedding.
6. How many meetings will we have? How often will we communicate?
An accurate wedding planning process needs a constant exchange of ideas between me and my couples, so from the very beginning it’s very important for me to establish a strong connection with the bride and groom. This usually happens via Skype/Facetime/Whatsup calls and emails. I love working with shared .ppt files containing all the details of the wedding, including a color palette, inspirational images, timeline, vendors’ info, and all the relevant details.
We love you
My husband Gus and I live in Australia, when we started planning our wedding in my hometown Rome, straightaway we became aware that we had no idea where to start. We decided to "interview" a few wedding planners through Skype and this is how we met Francesca for the first time and this is how our amazing journey started. Francesca's best qualities are her vibrant energy, positivity, professionalism and passion for what she does.
Francesca was a bit like a counselor, she was able to get to know us through our numerous Skype sessions, to understand our fears, our styles and to share ideas but most importantly to give us recommendation that only someone with years and years of experience in the field can give.
Francesca knows among the best vendors in Rome: florist, photographer, musicians, caterer and private transport...and locations...we got married at Basilica di Castel Sant'Elia and had our reception at Borgo della Merluzza (just Google these two places and will understand what I am talking about).
Literally every single guests (130 pax) are still thanking us for the amazing wedding; they said that it was the best wedding that they have ever been to. This was only possible because of Francesca, I did not have to worry about anything that day, we were able to enjoy ourselves and the party as Francesca was on top of everything.
We could not have asked for anything better...she is the BEST wedding planner and given the choice, we would chose her over and over again.
Even though this chapter is now finished, the journey is still continuing because we know that we will meet Francesca again...once you know her, it is difficult to let her go ;-)
Thank you again Francesca Resciniti, we love you heaps.
Francesca made my wedding! Without her I don’t know how we could of done it. From the first meeting, she made us feel calm and no matter what we asked she managed to do it for us! We always said finding Francesca was the best thing we ever done for our wedding! I would definitely without a doubt recommend her to anyone!
Francesca is 100% of the reason our wedding was so amazing! We contacted Francesca after seeing her profile and reviews online. She quickly set up a Skype consultation and understood exactly what we were looking for. We talked about locations and picked a beautiful spot in the Villa Borghese Gardens. She gave us samples to personalize our ceremony. She even got to know my Husband and I individually and added a heartfelt personalization of her own. It was perfect. But that wasn't all. She also assisted in booking our reception lunch by recommending a restaurant with, honest to God, the best meal I've ever had in my life. Everything was perfect and we have Francesca to thank. I would recommend her to anyone.
