A total pleasure!
Myself and my husband live in London but we always imagined a destination wedding in gorgeous Tuscany after having made so many wonderful memories there together. Even though my husband, James, spoke Italian, it was absolutely the right call to hire DIW as our wedding planners, opting for the full package.
Stefania was our planner and she was absolutely brilliant throughout the process. From the beginning she listened carefully to our vision and our preferences and from this, she was able to curate a wedding that exceeded our high expectations -from the perfect venue, to the caterers, to the florist, the the band etc etc!
For anyone else who is a control freak (like me), be rest assured that the level of involvement you prefer in your wedding is entirely possible. Stefania did all of the hard work and all we had to do was choose from a few carefully selected vendors who met our budget and other requirements. As a result, the planning process was collaborative, stress-free and so much fun. Without Stefania and DIW's expertise, there is no way we would have had such a positive experience if we had to source and secure vendors ourselves. I would highly recommend using DIW as your wedding planner. Stefania was responsive, trustworthy, efficient and her enthusiasm in helping us create our dream wedding really shone through. Thank you!Sent on 06/30/2020
Distinctive Italy Weddings's reply:Thank you so much Francesca for your kind review! We are so happy that your wedding planning experience was such a positive one and that you enjoyed working with our Stefania! Thank you for taking the time to share with others your experience with DIW. Wishing you both a wonderful life together! Rosanna and the Team

Amazing wedding planners that truly care about what the Bride and Groom want
I can’t say enough of how much of a pleasure it was working with DIW. Rosanna and her team put in so much time to understand what we were looking for even before a contract was signed and did an incredible job at making recommendations based on our desires and budget. I love that Rosanna truly understood our requirements and therefor was able to guide us to something that fit perfectly for our dream wedding. It was clear that DIW truly cares about making this an unforgettable and amazing day for their clients. The advice that we received, the understanding of what we wanted, the speed at which they worked, among other things was truly amazing and made them a joy to work with. DIW made it very easy to enjoy this process rather than feel stressed. While external circumstances caused us to change our plans and no longer hold a wedding in Italy, I am confident that we would have received our absolute dream wedding by working with DIW. Highly recommend DIW to anyone looking to have a wedding in Italy who wants to pull off their dream wedding while having a fun planning experience!Sent on 07/06/2020

My fiancé and I always wanted to plan an Italian destination wedding, but we had no idea where to start. We were recommended by a friend to reach out to Distinctive Italy Weddings, and I’m so glad we did! Rosanna and senior planner Stefania were everything you would want in wedding planners—helpful and responsive, and so very pleasant to work with!Sent on 11/22/2020
Our entire experience with Distinctive Italy exceeded our expectations and eased my worries about how difficult it would be to effectively communicate with a wedding planner abroad.
Although unfortunately our plans for a destination wedding plans had to be tabled due to family reasons, we were extremely satisfied with their service throughout the multiple video chats and email exchanges. DIW helping us scout possible venues (across 3 different regions) and even assemble a rough estimate for a budget. If you’re thinking of a destination wedding, you can’t go wrong with Distinctive Italy!
Distinctive Italy Weddings's reply:Thank you Alyda for taking the time to share your experience with DIW. It means a lot to us. We wish you and Nick a wonderful life together! All our best. Rosanna
