What is the budget for wedding in Prague / in the Czech Republic

“What is the wedding budget?” This is the most frequent question I get from my clients and I understand why. However, it is very difficult to say the exact amount at the beginning of the planning as it depends on so many factors.

Budget mostly depends on details such as

  • Do you pay rental fee for the wedding venue?
  • How much and what quality of food & beverage will there be to meet your expectations?
  • How many guests are you expecting?
  • Does the venue provide chairs & tables or they have to be rented externally?
  • What quality of suppliers are you expecting?


I would say the average price for a very nice wedding would be around 200 EUR per person. But honestly, it is super difficult to say as it all depends on so many aspects. Each wedding is different as every couple has different expectations. Therefore, some weddings are cheaper and some weddings are more expensive.

I always compare it to decorating your house or a flat. You can buy very nice furniture and accessories for a low amount of money, an average cost, more expensive or super expensive. It is all about your expectations, personal taste, and decision on what you want to invest in.

I’m here to propose you plenty of possibilities to choose from and tell you which is the best way for you. I always recommend what to invest in and what is not necessary. If you have a wonderful dream elegant chateau wedding in mind and you have a reasonable budget for it, that is the best of course. Then you can go for the best suppliers and really make the DREAM wedding come true.

If you are planning a wedding in the Czech Republic and you are looking for the wedding planner for your dream wedding, don’t hesitate to contact me.

Yours sincerely,


Wedding in the Czech Republic / Destination wedding in Prague

Prague is located in the center of Europe. That is one of the reasons why couples often think of organizing their wedding in the Czech Republic, but there are plenty other reasons as well:

  • It is super easy to reach Prague by plane from all around the world
  • The Czech Republic is a country with plenty of castles and historical buildings combined with a wonderful countryside and nature
  • The Czech Republic is famous for its beer, which is one of the best in the world. It is usually cheaper than water!
  • Weddings in Czech cost much less compared to many countries around the world. The cost therefore becomes much more reasonable.
  • There are many beautiful venues for weddings. In historical palaces, gardens or simply a lovely restaurant with a view.
  • It is very popular to spend a few days before rafter the wedding in Prague or travel around Czech and make it a lovely holiday. I sometimes organize more days for all the guests where we are traveling around Czech exploring castles, breweries, local vineyards or historical cities.
  • Prague is a wonderful city for exploring, enjoying great food and drinks for reasonable prices, and has easy transportation and nice people.
  • And of course sometimes couples have a personal reason connected to Prague.

Do you think it is difficult to organize a wedding abroad? Are you worried about not visiting Prague in advance? I will try to explain how it usually works.

Most of my clients live abroad. Usually either a Czech girl marrying a foreign guy, or they are both foreign. We communicate in English. I provide all the materials in English such as budget, time schedule, all contracts, offers etc. I really like if my clients come for 1 meeting to choose the venue and do the food tasting because it’s great if they can see all the venues in person. However, I’ve had plenty of cases when they didn’t visit as they were from far abroad (e.g. Australia, USA, Canada.) I simply made them plenty of photos and videos so that they could feel like they’ve been there and are able to make the right decision. It works just as well.

Then, all the communication is done through e-mail, Skype and sometimes Whatsapp. I’m available almost 24/7 for my brides to discuss all the little details.

Additionally, I meet all vendors in Prague or outside Prague on behalf of my clients. This includes the suppliers, wedding venue coordinators, and catering, where I discuss all the details and plan the wedding.

If you know anything about the Czech Republic, you know that the food is quite heavy and not for everyone. I always work on making the food on the wedding day enjoyable for the concrete nationality. Often I organize a pre-wedding dinner where I propose a barbeque or a typical spread of Czech food and beer so that the guests experience the best from Czech.

I always help my clients deal with the legal paper work as I’m in touch with the registry office and have full power for that. Right before the wedding, the couple needs to go to the registry office and sign the documents. By then we know that all the documents are taken care of.


I have plenty of experience organizing weddings so my clients can always rely on my professionalism and the fact that I always find the best suppliers which not only suit their style ideas and budget, but also personalities. I know most of the suppliers on the Czech market in person so I can tell if they are good or not. I give my clients all of my energy and I make an effort to make each wedding perfect and tailored for the couple.

From my experience, all the guests from abroad are always super excited about the wedding in Prague or Czech as it is something they have never thought of or experienced. Most of them have never been to Prague and they are amazed by the historical buildings, views, great food and drinks, and the great service the suppliers provide. Prague provides a wonderful location for the couple and guests alike.

Prague wedding planner – why to hire the planner? Which one to choose?


Have you ever been on a wedding where no-one was in charge of the organization part, guests weren´t sure where to go or what will be happening, you were a bit hungry and really thirsty? Were you bored and there was not enough entertainment?

Those are some of the reasons why it is good to have the wedding planner. Someone who you pass all the responsibility. The wedding planner is then in charge of everything and everybody. I know that the clients can fully rely on me and don´t have to worry about any details. If they need any advice or help, I´m always there for them. During the whole wedding planning I´m in charge of everything – finding the right venue, negotiations with the wedding venue and suppliers and overall communications with everyone. I´m the only contact person of my clients so I save them plenty of time.

I find it very difficult for the clients to find a proper wedding planner / wedding agency on the Czech market. There are so many of them! One of my client recently told me that he finds it extremely difficult to find out the differences between the wedding agencies and doesn´t know how to pick. How can you tell at the beginning that the person will really be in charge of YOUR wedding, will deal with you during the whole planning process and actually be there on the wedding day? How do you know that the person puts 150% of the energy to your wedding? How do you know that she is a true professional? You don´t. I think you cannot find this out from the internet, you have to live through it :-). Unfortunately there aren´t many good agencies on the market so make sure you pick very carefully.

I always say – just look at the web pages, look at the photos, meet the owner and connect all the impressions to make sure it is the right wedding planner for you.

Make sure you have all this in mind once you are picking the wedding planner:

  • When you meet the owner make sure you click. You will be in touch with this person for the whole time. You want her to be professional, pleasant, reliable and good person all in one.
  • Make sure the wedding planner is true professional and has plenty of experience from the past with good reviews.
  • Don´t let yourself push to anything! You are the client and you should always have the last word.

It is important so that your wedding planner plans the wedding with perfection and focus on detail. She should offer you suppliers according to your taste, ideas and budget. She shouldn´t make mistakes, she needs to give you a lot of advice and put the whole wedding together. Then she needs to coordinate the wedidng day with perfection and smile, needs to resolve problems very quickly without anyone noticing and so on. You see it is not always easy to find out all this from the first impression.

My clients often say that at the beginning they cannot even imagine what I will do as a wedding planner and then during the planning process and after the wedding they are thrilled and say that they would never ever be able to manage it themselves.

So how do you find out if the wedding planner is the one? Try meeting the owner and you will see how it goes!
