Got a very good friend who's engaged to be married. Both her and her fiance would like to get married in Italy (they don't live there nor speak Italian) and stay there for the honeymoon. She says it's a "small" wedding, about 40-60 guests. She has no idea how to pull this off and asked me to help because I "know Italy" (been there 100 times). I have some places in mind where the wedding can be held but I have no idea what to do other than spot a place on the map. How 50 people are going to fly over to Italy for a wedding and for how long they would stay there? Should they pay for the flight and hotel (plus food, transportation etc.) themselves or should the young couple pay some? Should the wedding be and then at night everyone go back to their hotel? Should all be in the same hotel? Can it be arranged? What are the costs?
I'm pretty clueless. Anyone have experience with this?
One thing I know for sure- It's gonna be freaking fun!
