Today’s wedding planner interview is with Monica of Weddings On Demand, based in Rome, Italy! Enjoy:
Tell us a bit about yourself and your company.
With five years of experience in incoming services, Rome on demand has been taking care of travellers from all around the world. We decided to give the same assistance and dedication to those travellers through our wedding and event planning division. Weddings on demand was born to guide couples through their destination wedding in Italy, offering exclusive services, arranged by expert wedding designers, in Italy’s finest hand-picked locations.

How did you get into wedding planning?
After spending a lifetime in assisting travellers through incoming services and corporate events, we decided to take advantage of that experience and pursue what we really enjoyed. No event can be more memorable than a perfect wedding!
What’s your favorite part of the job?
Guiding the couple through their journey, making them know they can lean on you, gaining their trust is the most important part of the process. Nothing is more rewarding than their sincere “thank you” at the end of the event.
What’s the biggest lesson you’ve learned, and would pass along to other new wedding planners just getting started?
Choose your suppliers carefully, trust your instinct and always be prepared for a plan B!
What are your hobbies or non-work-related activities?
Movies, finding inspiration for new colour pallets from nature but mostly travelling through our wonderful country, Italy!
Any great stories from working with a client?
Each client is special in their own way. Naming only one story wouldn’t be fair for the others :)
What is your current favorite color combination?
Our current obsession are silver and pastel colours such as light peach, green and turquoise.
Are there any trends that you absolutely love or would love to see brides leave behind?
We love everything that takes inspiration from nature. We adore bouquets with flowers that seem freshly picked, wooden logs as centrepieces and candles.
What tips or advice can you give to couples who are in the midst of planning?
Deciding a budget is fundamental, think things according to that and if you think of hiring a wedding planner trust your instinct!
