Wedding planner’s advice 4

HAVE YOU ALREADY MADE A GUEST LIST?

Start typing names and surnames and make a maximum number. It is important to give a rough idea both to the venue and the caterers/restaurant. Prices may change significantly with an increasing number of guests. It is also important to properly evaluate the capacity of the room choice, both to avoid that the place of the reception is excessively large, but above all to ensure that waiters can pass and people can move about!

ARE THERE MANY CHILDREN?

If so, think of an entertainer dedicated to them, so that parents and children can enjoy the party. The most popular arrangement is to have a table for children, usually in a room adjoining the main one, where the entertainer will keep the children busy and make them eat, alternating between clown performances, costumes, games, and face painting, so that children can have fun but also their parents can eat without worrying about them.

HAVE YOU THOUGHT ABOUT WHAT KIND OF MUSIC YOU WOULD LIKE?
From a string trio, quartet, jazz, or rock band to a piano duet and karaoke. Think about your friends and the party you have in mind and you will find the answer. There is a wide choice of professional musicians, every day I receive many emails from singers and every type of group who are available for weddings. Usually during the buffet they entertain the guests, at dinner / lunch they play background music, piped in, and then the party really gets started after the wedding cake, with lots of dancing! Always ask the owners of the villa / restaurant what kind of sound systems there are or where the electric supply for the music is, since this is important to understand where to place the musicians inside the room or in the garden.

WEDDING LIST, HONEYMOON, WEDDING FAVORS AND INVITATION, THE LAST STEPS.

Remember that etiquette says invitations should be sent to everyone, because it is a change in marital status and soeveryone should be informed. Also if you have invited friends’ boyfriends, remember to send two separate invites, sending one unique invitation is only ok for members of the same family. So says wedding etiquette!

It is a very nice idea to create a mini web site with all the information about your wedding!

There are free versions that guide you in creating some pages where you can tell your guests how you met, give indications for how to arrive at the ceremony location and directions to your reception. It is nice to give tourist info for people coming who are not from the area and maybe advertise a collection “fund” for your honeymoon.

If you have done what is described up to here, you will be well underway! Then, on your wedding day, the beauty lies in seeing how every detail is as you dreamed, planned and finally is.

And do not forget to enjoy the party!

Good luck and best wishes!

IL PROSSIMO PASSO SARA’ QUELLO DI SCEGLIERE IL FOTOGRAFO

Amate le pose o davanti a una macchina fotografica siete impacciati e preferite uno stile più reportistico e spontaneo. Preferite gli album tradizionali o siete più moderni e prediligete i foto libri? I classici filmini vi annoiano e amate lo stile dei video musicali o siete per il video tradizionale? Ponetevi queste domande prima di cercare un fotografo, risparmierete tempo e avrete le idee chiare!

ORA PENSIAMO AI FIORI

L’ideale sarebbe creare un filo conduttore per il vostro matrimonio. Un tema, un colore, qualsiasi idea abbiate purché sia distintivo del vostro giorno e venga utilizzato nelle partecipazioni, così come nell’allestimento floreale, nell’allestimento della location, nel tavolo della confettata e nelle bomboniere. Se siete delle persone creative date libero spazio alla vostra immaginazione e create, altrimenti lasciatevi consigliare da chi è del mestiere, fiorai in primis. Il mio consiglio è quello di scegliere la persona che vi piaccia, non tanto il tipo di decoro. Se avrete deciso per quel fioraio che ha gusto,ha mano ed è capace di interpretare le vostre idee e il vostro stile avrete fatto bingo.

Dico di scegliere la persona, perché poi se ci sarà feeling, starà a lui la bravura di creare ciò che più vi rappresenta. A meno che non abbiate già le idee chiare su ciò che vorrete realizzare. Chiedete quali sono i fiori di stagione, perché avranno una resa migliore e non vi costeranno un patrimonio. Lasciatevi guidare nella scelta degli abbinamenti, del verde, del tipo di forme da utilizzare, dei verdi e degli accessori nella composizioni per i tavoli.

Non è necessario spendere un patrimonio, ma se si decide di fare qualcosa, deve essere fatto a dovere, altrimenti meglio non fare!

Lo stile e l’eleganza prima di tutto!

Pensate alla chiesa, al luogo del ricevimento e al vostro abito.

Se volete stupire i vostri ospiti con una meravigliosa auto d’epoca o una lussuosa limousine la rete sarà un ottimo strumento che potrà esservi d’aiuto nella ricerca. Solitamente l’auto viene noleggiata insieme all’autista e vi accompagnerà da casa fino in chiesa e dalla chiesa al ristorante (solo andata). Importante: se avete scelto un’auto d’epoca e il luogo del vostro ricevimento è lontano da dove si svolge la cerimonia considerate che un’auto d’epoca non può mantenere la velocità di un’auto dei nostri giorni, e quindi inciderà sui tempi (questo non ve lo dirà mai chi noleggia auto).

Nel prossimo articolo parleremo dei vostri invitati…

VILLA OR RESTAURANT?

If you want to give your guests an exclusive day, the choice of a location is definitely up to you. Villas, castles, manor houses, the choice is vast. Do not be influenced by those who will tell you “but a catering service will never be the same as a restaurant”, in reality it is not true, now caterers are better equipped to cook on site, so the dishes are not only heated but prepared on the spot as the restaurant. No doubt the choice of a location, whatever it is, allows guests to experience a unique event, with an original and unusual atmosphere which is different from what we would have in a posh restaurant, even if it is the best in the area, because there it is always possible to dine.

When choosing the the venue, in addition to considering the beauty of the place, the possibility of using a garden, a courtyard or forecourt, also think about these factors:

– Distance from the ceremony (church or town)

-Speed of service (very important that the seated part is not longer than 1 ½ hours)

-Variety of menus offered (the presence of seasonal dishes is very important to the menu)

-Price, which should be in the average, and include everything (always ask if VAT is included or excluded, if it includes the wedding cake, chair covers, in the location of chairs and tables)

– Parking

-Services

-Air conditioning and heating (if the wedding is in winter)

If you have opted for one of the wonderful villas that the Marche offers, contact the best catering and ask for a sample. Most serious professionals will offer you a super dinner to test their chef’s cuisine, always ask if the tasting is offered or not, so as not to get any nasty surprises (some even speculate on that). Check their buffet book, see how they decorate their plates, the wedding cakes that they propose, even how they set up the tables is a good indicator of professionalism. Do not get too captivated by the majestic garden that you see already set up with your decorated tables, even if you are getting married in July!

IF IT RAINS?

The location should offer small halls or a salon-style country house! Always think about the bad weather element when choosing the venue, because even if your wedding is in high summer you never know! So ask and explore the interior of the villas, find out about their own capacity or if you’re in love with this beautiful garden that doesn’t have an adequate indoor solution , opt for the hire of a marquee.

You have chosen your restaurant or your villa and caterers, if you’ve decided for a religious marriage, go to the church to ask your pastor if the date is available, or go to the registry office.

Inquire also about procedures for civil or religious documents to be prepared, if you have not done the marriage counseling course then you should also ask about dates, because without this course the church will not let you get married! We have the church or town hall, the reception venue, we are already well under way!

It will be your wedding planner to handle and solve the problems of last minute surprises and oversee every detail of your day.

The only thing left for you to do is to enjoy the party!

But if you have decided to go it alone, here is some advice.

I invite you to think back for a moment to the last wedding you attended, what did you like? What did you absolutely not want to do? Start from what the first thing you would not want at your wedding and then proceed …

First choice to make: the reception venue.

If you have already chosen a date, hurry to find a place that is still available, but if you have any preferences, you can take it more calmly just for a month or so. However, before any other decision, start to visit places, ask for advice from your friends, think back to the last wedding you attended.
