Friendly Weddings – The Wedding Planner by Arianna & Friends
Unconventional weddings in Tuscany
Friendly Weddings by Arianna & Friends organizes civil weddings and blessings where you, bride and groom, and your guests can lay back in an informal, unconventional and welcoming atmosphere. Simplicity and authenticity are our keywords.
We will pay attention to the people rather than to the formalities: it is your memorable day and you will spend it with the most important people in your life!
We organize truly Tuscan, simple and picturesque weddings with no fixed etiquette, choosing only the most authentic Tuscan locations.
You have booked your villa for your wedding in Tuscany on your own? We will pop around to your villa, study spaces and equipments available and we will tailor make your wedding estimate based on what we found out.
We will help you in providing the proper documentation and paperwork to validate your Italian civil wedding. But if you think that a legal civil wedding is too complicated, no worries! We will organize a blessing as a symbolic ceremony at a charming place we suggest or at your villa.
We support the “0 km” products, so only local and seasonal products will be included for your reception menu and only seasonal flowers will adorn your ceremony and reception.
You will choose your Tuscan wedding meal from our menu list and our cooks, our ‘’grandmas’’, will bring fresh ingredients to the wedding venue and prepare your wedding meal from scratch in the kitchen. We will give you our support for the most suitable dishes for your country meal.
Our mission is ‘LOCAL’: people, suppliers, materials and prices.
For your wedding in Tuscany, here is what Friendly Weddings provides:
– We give you legal support for your legal civil wedding
– We also organize symbolic celebrations and blessings
– For of your wedding ceremony we select town halls, historical places, private house and villas
– We take care of your wedding banquet with typical Tuscan cuisine

Wedding planning service was brilliant. Lots of help with the planning and perfect coordination and translation on day. Just to say we used the wedding planning service and were given lots of help in organizing the event. The coordinator we used for the actual wedding made sure everything went smoothly on the day and was very friendly and helpful.

This is a Skype conversation between our wedding assistant Veronica and our guest Mariette after a wedding we arranged for her
”Hi!!! I’ve been meaning to write to you every day 🙂
We’re all good thank you, (…)
Thank you so so so much for everything you did for our beautiful wedding, we really loved every minute of it.
All our guests loved the wedding too. It’s the talk amongst all our friends now 🙂
I would love to do it all again and I’m really glad you enjoyed helping us with the wedding too. I think it really showed on the day that you were all happy too 🙂 our guests are still talking about what an amazing time they had (the food is the first thing everyone mentions and how it was THE BEST meal they have ever had).”

This is an email we received on from Simon, a wedding planner from the UK who arranged a wedding in Tuscany for 150 people with our help.
Dear Veronica and Ariana
Thank you so much for all your help. You are the best travel company we have worked with around the world. You were so organised, so helpful and always had a smile on your face.
All the extras for guests were not a problem too which is amazing.
Anyway, I may see you later because we will drop the sign off to you but thanks once again.
