Posted in Positano, Italy

I am in the beginning stages of planning my wedding. My dream has always been to get married in Positano. But my parents feel that, while they have been fortunate and can provide me with my dream wedding, that it is rude to impose on people, especially in this economy, to fly to Italy and spend a lot of money to come to my wedding. I am wondering if anyone has come up against this problem, and what solutions they have found. I want my family and friends to be there, and while they say they will do anything to be there now, will they really come when the flight costs and everything else gets factored in? Thanks for any advice!!!

Hello Deena,
If people want to be with you, they'll come. we were married in Sorrento and some people came by Easyjet, others by British Airways.
Don't worry!

Hi there,

Why not try hiring a villa for your guests?

If you select one in a smaller resort, it may be more reasonable, you could then book coach transport if necessary to bring them to reception.
once you have enquired, you can then work out the cost per head all told.

Hope all pans out well for you, I am not a wedding agency, just a Brit with amazing love of Italy and its people!

Do have a look around! There are many beautiful resorts further down at a lot less cost!

Very best of luck to you!
