The every-month-appointment is back: Unconventional Wedding meets Onivà, a tailor made travel agency.
The first weddings of this season have already ended and the first couples have already left for their honeymoon. For all the others, don’t miss this interview to discover a new way of traveling, the Mistery Tour!
Hi Francesca, first of all tell us what Onivà is
Onivà is a dream, my dream, that I realized. I have always had a passion for travels, for their organization and now this is my job, it’s a great satisfaction.
Onivà is an opportunity for living a unique experience. For our travelers we create unique itineraries: we design them tailored to their tastes, desires and resources. This is the way we also like to travel: off the expected routes and as far away as possible from “ready-made” packages.
What services do you offer in general to travelers and specifically to couples who rely on you for their honeymoon?
The tourism market has changed a lot over the years and potentially everyone could organize their trip. But many people don’t have time, some don’t have skills or the same passion that we have for the organization.
We can take care of all the aspects of the journey: from the destination to the concept of the travel (on the road, food experience, relax, etc.); from the detailed itinerary to all the logistic aspects (from the documents to the type of insurance); besides of course proposing solutions for transports and accommodations.
Each Onivà trip is also accompanied by a personalized guide, a vademecum in which every traveler finds the most important information of the trip (flight schedules, accommodation or restaurants addresses) and some useful information on what to do or see.
For those who marry we can create a special site as a wedding list. Anyone can symbolically link their gift to a specific stage of the Honeymoon. We also deal with the layout of the travel photo book. For many, honeymoons are an opportunity to make the “journey of life” and they return with mountains of shots. We help them to collect the photos in a book with care.
The service that most interested me is your fantastic Mistery Tour, tell us more about it
Actually it’s very simple. Like all Onivà travelers, even those who want the Mystery Tour respond to our online questionnaire, specifying that they want our Mistery trip and indicating an accomplice that we can contact directly for the practical aspects.
Then, our travelers just have to wait to receive the mysterious bag at home – strictly handmade – and resist the temptation to open it.
They can open it once they arrive at the station or at the airport, just before leaving, and they will know the destination of the trip. Of course we have already provided them with some minimal information: which clothing to wear, any necessary accessories, what kind of weather they will have to expect.
We invite you to watch this video: the surprised faces at the opening time of the box are worth all the effort behind every single trip.
I really like the idea of a “honeymoon – Mistery Tour”: the couple will discover at the airport where they are going! Is it possible to create it, also with a linked travel list?
Yes, of course! Compared to the usual travel list, in this case even the guests can not know the destination. If it’s true that you can not tie your gift to a specific stage, it’s also true that it’s funny that the gift is a mystery too. For example, the newlyweds can give a romantic dinner in a starred restaurant, without knowing the city or what kind of cuisine it offers.
Do you want to give an advice to couples who want an Unconventional wedding, and even an unconventional honeymoon?
Easy: be brave. Those who make a similar choice obviously want something different from the usual and every couple has every rights to expect their wedding as the most beautiful day of their life and the honeymoon like the journey they will remember forever. If you make an Unconventional choice, however, confide totally in professionals vendors and be pleasantly surprised at 100%.
