Organizing an event requires careful planning and attention to details. The aim is to create an event that will leave your guests with happy memories. 


One way to make sure that your event is memorable for your guest is to make sure that they don’t leave with empty hands. Whatever the nature of your event, it is always nice if you prepare gifts that your guest can take home with them. That kind of attention has a good effect and will make sure your guest leave with positive feelings about your event.

Video: Wedding Hair from the '60's to Today | My Italian wedding | Scoop.it

A woman’s hair is said to be her crowing glory and the hairstyle you choose to have during your wedding day is the final crowing touch needed to achieve your dream wedding look.

In our last post, we showed you how wedding dresses have changed throughout the decades.  While the infographic we showed you did touch somewhat on wedding hairstyles throughout the decades, it only scratched the surface of what brides have been doing to make the most of their crowing glory for their dream wedding day.

Take a look at this video we found that offers a more in-depth look at how wedding hairstyles have changed and evolved during the past decades.  This video from BuzzFeed with hairstylist Kayley Melissa takes us on a quick tour of how brides have styled their hair from the 1960’s to the present.  They managed to squeeze in 50 years of hairstyles in just a little over 2 minutes!

Choosing the right wedding planner in Italy

Choosing the right wedding planner in Italy | My Italian wedding | Scoop.it

Aside from pizza and the pasta, Italy is the country of marriage.  Despite crisis conditions, Italians love to get married to proclaim their feelings to the world.

 

Love conquers all in Italy, even the economic crisis.

 

According to ISTAT 2012, the country saw more than 203000 weddings in 2011. Even in the midst of hard times, Italians are in love and want nothing more to declare that love through the world by getting married.

 

In order to facilitate this love of weddings, ask for the services of a wedding planner.

 

How choosing a professional one ?

 

wedding planning is not a profession that you learn with only three or four days of training.  Wedding planners are not just people who know how to make bows and cookies but professionals with strong organization skills and the ability to problem solve.

 

A wedding planner needs to be prepared to shoulder the burden of ensuring that a couple’s dream wedding goes the way they want and with what they want.

 

A good wedding planner is not something that only the so called “rich” can afford but someone who knows how to get the best possible effects regardless of the budget imposed.  A wedding planner must be knowledgeable of the market and suppliers, and be able to get the bride and groom the best possible products available at a price that is within their budget.

Que dire sinon un grand merci à Christelle pour ce renouvèlement de vœux (10 ans de mariage).
Merci pour les nombreux mails de préparation échangés et pour toutes les solutions trouvées.
Merci pour la qualité de la prestation sur place : la prise en charge a été très professionnelle mais aussi et surtout très humaine.
Nous n’oublierons pas la cérémonie en gondole, la séance photo en compagnie de Sara qui a su trouver les bons endroits et qui a eu beaucoup de patience («Alexander !!! smile please !!! »). Sans oublier  les indispensables lingettes utilisées pour ôter les traces du rouge à lèvre de Jessica.
La privatisation de l’une des salles du  restaurant en bord de canal était génialement romantique  et intime.

Getting Married in Italy. What You Need and What is Available

Getting Married in Italy. What You Need and What is Available | My Italian wedding | Scoop.it

Getting married in Italy can often be seen as an arduous task, but this is not. Below is some useful information to get you started… It is totally manageable, don’t worry. Your wedding can also be arranged efficiently without you having to worry about. All good wedding planners can help you to arrange this.


Q:Is a marriage in Italy valid all over the world?

A: A wedding between two foreigners neither of whom is resident in Italy is called a “matrimonio di transito” (transit wedding) and is recognised all over the world. The local town hall supplies you with dual-language copies of the legal wedding certificate, which can also be used to register the
wedding with your own local registry office.

Q:Where can I get married in Italy?

A: Marriages in Italy are only valid if performed in legally recognised locations. These, in general, are just town halls and churches, although some other locations may have been recognised in some parts of Italy.You will need to talk to the local town hall to find out what other locations are available.
For a wedding in a church you need to talk to the local priest to arrange the date and the exchange of documents between the town hall and church. Catholic priests will typically also require some evidence that you went through a wedding preparation course, which could be as simple as a signed letter from your local Catholic church in the UK.

Huge Weddings Lead to Better Marriage, Says New Study

Huge Weddings Lead to Better Marriage, Says New Study | My Italian wedding | Scoop.it

So, your mom and in-laws have taken over your wedding planning and are threatening to turn it into a three-ring circus? Instead of cursing them beneath your breath and fighting them every step of the (chocolate waterfall) way, a new study suggests you should probably be grateful to them for turning your intimate affair into one filled with 300-plus guests whom you wouldn't know if you passed them on the street.

 

According to a report from the National Marriage Project at the University of Virginia, couples who have a large, formal wedding are more likely to be happy together later on in life. The authors of the study tracked 418 couples for five years from the date they tied the knot. After half a decade, it was discovered those who threw big weddings perceived themselves to be "happy" and thought less about splitting up when times got tough. Are you ordering 100 more invitations and going for the lobster?

 

The authors of the study made sure to mention something you may be thinking -- if a couple has a large wedding they're likely spending more money on that wedding, which means they -- or their parents -- are probably more well off than some others who struggle to make ends meet while married.

 

While we know money isn't everything, we have to also be logical and understand that one of the reasons couples divorce is because they can't see eye to eye on financial issues. If you have money, that's one less problem to have to contend with as husband and wife.

 

Another reason I could totally see this report holding water is because, when your family and friends are invested in your relationship and well-being, you are more likely to seek their advice and help if you should need it. And, let's face it, most of us need to consult with others from time to time because sustaining a strong marriage isn't easy.

 

I had a fairly large wedding -- not because my husband and I were opposed to running off to some remote island and eloping, but because my huge Italian family and his relatives and large network of childhood friends would have felt insulted and hurt if we left them out. Even after I thought our guest list was complete, we were both asked to invite additional people because our parents had relationships with those people -- and we had no problem doing so because we viewed our celebration as one that was as much for the people in our lives who would provide emotional support to us when we needed it as it was for us.

 

I've been married for 6 years and -- two babies, an apartment and a house later -- I definitely feel like a "happy" wife. I'm not going to lie -- there are moments when I've fantasized about living a stress-free life in solitude, where my only concerns are me, myself and I. I know for a fact that my husband has felt the same. I'm certainly not going to credit a large wedding with marital bliss because it's far more complicated than that. Plus, two of our best friends married on that remote island I mentioned earlier and they are the happiest couple you'll ever meet.

But when you realize your relationship isn't just about you -- that you have a whole guest list of people to answer to -- who will call you immediately when they hear something isn't right in paradise -- I feel you're more likely to take a deep breath and try again.

 

Do you think there's a link between having a big wedding and being a happy couple?
