Choose the church or the city hall
“To receive guests is to take charge of their happiness during the entire time they are under your roof” – Brillat-Savarin. Hospitality is not a simple ritual, it is an expression of culture: a well-set table gives rise to a unique form of conviviality.

Create a guest list

“Wish list”…create your bridal registry
“Creative flowers design” contact your flower designer to decide on the flower arrangements
Choose music for your wedding reception…remember to play the right songs at the right times: each special moment will need its own vibe. These melodies, which will accompany you on your wedding day, will stay in your heart and help create that unique atmosphere every bride and groom dream of…the solemnity of the occasion, the excitement of the marriage vows, the happiness of the party.
“capturing the joy”…all future spouses always want to preserve the best memories from their special day and relive that dream forever. Therefore, you will have to hire a photographer and possibly a videographer.
“do-it-yourself snapshot”…here’s an original idea: leave a disposable camera on every table at the wedding reception so that the guests can capture the best memories of the party from their point of view.
Order your wedding invitations
Book your honeymoon
Finally choose your wedding dress

“Saying thank you”…Order the wedding favors (which will be sent to the bride)…
Wedding favors are statements of your style and personality. Handing them out to your guests mark the moment of farewells and perfectly expresses your thankfulness. It’s not about etiquette: wedding favors are a stylish closing, but they also represent a thread of love and joy that binds the newlyweds to their guests.
Try out the dress, choose the accessories, make arrangements for their delivery
Hire professionals for hair and make-up, make sure that they’re available and ask for an estimate
Choose your shoes with time to spare, especially if they have to be tailor-made.
Send your invitations
Choose the wedding rings
Put the finishing touches to the playlist and flower décor
Find a ride to the ceremony…a Vespa for a bubbly and trendy young couple, a carriage or a classic car for a traditional one,, the important thing is to show up happy and with a touch of irony…remember that the future spouses will arrive separately and after the ceremony they’ll head to the reception together. It is customary to hire a driver, but the etiquette allows for the husband to drive, if he desires.
