Behind the Italian Wedding of Carline Darjanto


Add To Board

"An intimate wedding, attended only by my immediate family and closest friends." This is the kind of dream wedding that Carline Darjanto is working hard to plan right now. Her venue of choice, an antique villa with beautiful views of Tuscany's rolling hills sure sounds heavenly, but like us you may wonder, why go as far as Italy?

Carline and Aoura had always wanted something different for their once-in-a-lifetime wedding celebration. So when Aoura proposed to Carline when they were hiking at the Cinque Terre, Italy seemed to be a perfectly natural choice. As the couple were resting on top of a hill, Aoura suddenly kneeled down and popped the question! Such a romantic moment, don't you think?

Planning a wedding located thousands of miles away is no easy feat, however. To assist her during 10 months of wedding planning, Carline had to search high and low for a reliable Italian wedding planner who suited her personality. As Carline and Aoura couldn't meet the vendors face to face, they had to rely on emails and Skype calls.

That's why Carline considers trust to be important when choosing the right wedding vendors. "First, I read reviews from their past clients and consider recommendations from friends and relatives. Then, I look at the vendor's portfolio. Reviews can tell me whether clients are satisfied with a vendor's service or not."

To enhance the scenic Tuscan views and historic beauty of their centuries-old wedding venue, the couple opted for a rustic theme with simple yet charming table settings. Carline found our very own Bridestory app to be especially helpful when finding inspirations for her wedding. She loves how the Bridestory homepage instantly shows plenty of beautiful inspirations, from decorations to hairpieces, that can be saved into her personal inspiration board with just a click.

"The Bridestory app makes wedding planning so much easier for modern brides who are too busy to meet every single vendor. It's the first wedding app in Indonesia that looks beautiful and is also easy to use. Because everything is connected, it's really easy for me to find, save, and contact talented wedding vendors," Carline added.

In the midst of her hectic wedding planning, Carline has some great advice for all you brides-to-be out there. "Relax, it's going to be great. Remember, getting married to the one you love is one of the best things that can ever happen in your life. So, try not to be too stressed, although I know it's easier said than done. Get plenty of exercise and stay healthy, because your health is the most important thing as the big day gets closer."
