C + T wedding in Tuscany
Tuscany, July 3rd 2015.
We've just had the wedding of our dreams thanks to Martina Coppino. I'm a perfectionist & had read many reviews of planners. I found a top 3. We had a call with the first. We said we liked Tuscany, she said ‘me too'. We said we also liked Amalfi, she said 'yes me too'. Then we said, 'but we are also thinking about the Alps'. She said ‘I like that too'. A clear NO!
We met the next planner to look at venues. We found the perfect venue but felt we were just another couple. She was so unenthusiastic.
After 2 disasters, we called Laura Frappa. Finally, an enthusiastic, organized woman. I will always be grateful to her for giving us our wonderful planner, Martina. The cost of a planner may seem high at the start but it’s the BEST money you spend.
During the planning, I felt like I was Martina's only bride. She answered emails immediately giving invaluable advice & always providing 3 vendor options of different price categories. You choose what you wanted to spend your budget on!
She knows the best suppliers, they respect her & do their best for you. For example, I was determined to find my own hairstylist that was a little cheaper than Martina suggested. The hairstylist cancelled on me 1 hour before I was supposed to have the trial done. I text Martina and instead of telling me 'I told you so', she contacted the hairstylist she had suggested. He was at our hotel in 2 hours! She makes it easy for you to relax, smile, say 'I do', drink prosecco and enjoy your special day!
In summary, Martina is professional, hardworking, extremely detailed (which is great for any of you perfectionists out there), friendly (even during moments of stress), funny (we shared many jokes) and always available. We are still in contact with her and I'm sure this friendship will continue. If you are looking for a stress free, fairytale wedding (the kind you think is only possible in the movies) planned by the BEST wedding planner in the world, then please look no further than EIW (ask for Martina!)
