This is for my sister - she is fluent in French but we have no family or friends there, so this would be destination from the U.S. Small wedding, maybe 20-30 people. We are trying to avoid a wedding planner but will consider it if it's not a total rip off! I was hoping someone might have a story to share or ideas (or warnings!). When I do an internet search, there's a lot of spmak so I'd rather ask actual brides! An all inclusive place (for reception, symbolic ceremony as non-residents can't actually marry in France, accomodations) would be great.
