Wedding Venue – Val d’Orcia Country House

Posted by on Oct 16, 2015 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

Tuscany is plenty of beauty, that’s for sure! Our team has just found a really great location in the Val d’Orcia area. This Country House can’t be defined just as a “HOUSE”; in fact the entire venue is part of an ancient Borgo established in the XI Century. The main building is the Villa, where there are 10 bedrooms. Just few steps away from the Villa there is the Canonica, a very big apartment with 5 double rooms (king size bed) and a room with twin beds; of course the Canonica building has a big sitting room, an equipped kitchen and a huge terrace overlooking the valley. There is also a private pool just outside the door. The Borgo has also other 7 buildings, ready to accommodate up to 20 people. Val d’Orcia Country House not only can be the perfect setting for holiday, but also a perfect wedding location! Both Catholic and Civil ceremony can be held on the ground. Meanwhile the reception can be set in all areas, since for your special day you will have the exclusive use.   For any further information or request about this Venue, please contact us at...

Wedding Shoes – How to choose the best

Posted by on Aug 14, 2015 in Flowers, Uncategorized, Wedding Location | 0 comments

Wedding shoes are another fundamental thing for a bride (certainly the most important). Choosing wedding shoes is never easy. There are such a wide variety of shapes, sizes, styles and colors that finding the pair that will work perfectly with the dress you’ve chosen can seem like such a difficult decision. Let’s be honest, the ceremony aisle is basically the equivalent of the real girl’s runway. With all eyes on you, you’re going to want to totally rock your bridal look — and a killer pair of heels to put the finishing touch on that perfectly fitting gown will do just the trick . Jimmy Choo, Manolo Blahnik, Chanel, Christian Louboutin, Stewart Weitzman, Aruna Seth, Giuseppe Zanotti are among the most popular shoe designers around the world and undoubtedly their creations are totally amazing. Not always beautiful shoes and comfort are synonymous, but after all no pain, no gain! Here below some useful advice, before you choose your perfect shoes! 1. Remember, you will be wearing your shoes from early in the morning until the last thing at night. Proper wedding shoes are specially designed with comfort in mind and have additional padding exactly for this purpose. Don’t make the mistake of buying cheap shoes that lack this padding and the extra support that makes wearing them not just tolerable, but comfortable, on your big day. 2. Pick wedding shoes that will allow flexibility, wear ability and most importantly stability! The best thing you can do is pick a shoe with a secure heel hold or a strap that will help it stay on your foot. If you have chosen to wear heeled shoes higher than you normally would, then we would highly recommend purchasing a strap shoe for comfort. Also, when trying on wedding shoes, make sure you try on several sizes to see which one fits you best.   3. High heels or medium? Every Brides must wear what they are used to and comfortable with on their wedding day. If you’re not used to wearing sky high heels but you want some height then great alternatives are available like platform heels or lower kitten heels, while satin ballet slippers make beautiful bridal shoes for those of us that prefer flats. 4. Consider the fabric and the color! Silk and satin are traditionally the two most popular choices for wedding shoes, but naturally your wedding dress and personal taste are going to have the greatest impact on the shoes you choose. Not only should you shoes be a great match for your dress, and do the setting, location and style of your wedding – but it’s very important that they reflect your personality. 5. VERY USEFUL SUGGESTION! Even if you’ll choose a comfortable pair of shoes, consider that they can pinch and cause soreness from rubbing, so it would be better if you pop your new wedding shoes and walk around for few minutes. By doing this, you will feel where the shoe is causing any rubbing and give you time to make any adjustments and stretch them out some more. Maybe you can consider to have two pairs of wedding shoes, one just for the Ceremony and photo shooting, and a pair of more comfortable flat ballet slippers to change into for later on (or just flip flop), so you can enjoy your dancing time!...

The right Wedding Dress for your body type

Posted by on Aug 10, 2015 in General, Uncategorized | 0 comments

The most exciting moment for a bride is the search for the perfect Wedding dress! White or colored, long or short, simple or decorated, with or without train, expensive or cheap…there are several options to consider before you can say: “This is the one!”. By the time you’re ready to start wedding dress shopping, you’ve probably amassed a pretty nice-sized wish list about your dream gown. At the Bridal shops you can evaluate all the possible options, but it would be more appropriate to limit your options and starting to choose a silhouette that will highlight your best-loved assets and conceal your less-favorable traits. There are at least five featured body types best defines your figure: petite, plus size, busty, hourglass or lean and straight. Of course, you may not fit squarely into one category — most people don’t! But it could be the starting point to select the best dress possible.   Wedding Dresses for Hourglass Body Types Work your womanly curves in a body-con bridal gown or hide your hips in a big ball gown — either way, your gown should show off your trim mid section. You have the curves, now you need to show them off. Opt for body-hugging mermaids that will enhance your sexy silhouette. Stay away from an overabundance of ruffles and tiers. Wedding Dresses for Lean-and-Straight Body Types Because floor-length gowns were made with your model stature in mind, you’ve got lots of options to choose from. But, if you’re hoping to create the illusion of curves — there are few tricks. A dress that will create curves where you don’t have them. Try a sheath dress in a wispy charmeuse that’s cut on the bias; the curving side seam will give you a va-va-va-voom silhouette. Or look for a ball gown that cinches in at your natural waist and descends into a full, flowing floor-length skirt: It will capitalize on your slenderness and camouflage a lack of hips. If You’re Tall… Look for: A simple silhouette. The strategy is to emphasize your natural shape, so every aspect of the dress―the lower waistline, a floor-sweeping hem―needs to reflect your longer proportions. If you’re wearing long sleeves, they should go past the wrist. You don’t want to look as if you’ve borrowed a gown from someone shorter than you. Wedding Dresses for Petite Body Types Petite brides should avoid overwhelming their small frame. Choose airy sheaths and structured trumpet styles over big, frothy ball gowns. Trumpet, sheath, and modified A-line gowns. Find a style with a waistline above your natural waist, to make the lower half of the dress (and therefore you) appear longer. The fabric is up to you―you can pull off a high sheen. But the detailing should be small (no huge bows) and limited to the bodice, to draw the eye upward.  Wedding Dresses for Busty Body Types If you’re a busty bride, you’ve got two choices: reveal or conceal. Either way, finding the right gown starts with pinpointing the perfect neckline. A dress with a scooped neckline. It will open up your face and display your décolletage without showing too much cleavage. If you love the look of strapless gowns, choose one that has a slight dip along the neckline, like a sweetheart, rather than a style that goes straight across (which will make your bust appear even larger and more shelflike).  Wedding Dresses for Plus-Size Body Types An Empire dress with a skirt that begins just under the bust and flows into a gradual floor-length A-line. Make sure the Empire seam does not start on the chest and that there is no pleating of the fabric, which is...

What is your favorite Love song?

Posted by on May 29, 2015 in Eventdesigner, Uncategorized | 0 comments

I always wondered: What is the most beautiful Love song ever? Billboard give me an answer drawing up its ranking of the biggest ‘Love’ songs to ever hit the Hot 100! Here’s the Top 10!!! #10 – “I Can’t Stop Loving You” – Ray Charles Hot 100 Peak: No. 1 for five weeks (1962) Back in 1958, Don Gibson wrote two songs one hot afternoon in Knoxville, Tenn. – “Oh Lonesome Me” and “I Can’t Stop Loving You.” Four years later, Charles only needed to hear the first two lines of the latter before deciding to record it for his album “Modern Sounds in Country and Western Music.” #09 – “Best of My Love” – The Emotions Hot 100 Peak: No. 1 for five weeks (1977) When the Stax label folded, the three Hutchinson sisters had to find a new home. They were signed to a production company run by Maurice White of Earth, Wind & Fire. With group member Al McKay, White wrote this song specifically for them and the lead voice of Wanda Hutchinson. #08 – “Because I Love You (The Postman Song)” – Stevie B Hot 100 Peak: No. 1 for four weeks (1990) Songwriter Warren Allen Brooks says his No. 1 hit was a “spiritual song,” even if people think he was writing about love between a man and a woman. “It’s really about me and God having a personal relationship.” #07 – “Let Me Love You” – Mario Hot 100 Peak: No. 1 for nine weeks (2005) Mario didn’t realize this song was going to be so huge. “I didn’t know it would touch so many people,” he says. “But it was an emotional song and those records last forever.” #06 – “I Will Always Love You” – Whitney Houston Hot 100 Peak: No. 1 for 14 weeks (1992) Houston’s signature song was originally a No. 1 hit for the woman who composed the tune, Dolly Parton. Her version topped the Hot Country Songs chart in 1974 and again in 1982. #05 – “Silly Love Songs” – Wings Hot 100 Peak: No. 1 for five weeks (1976) 1976 was a very good year for love songs achieving pole position on the Hot 100. First there was “Love Rollercoaster” by the Ohio Players, followed by Paul Simon’s “50 Ways to Leave Your Lover,” “Love Machine” by the Miracles, “Let Your Love Flow” by the Bellamy Brothers, “Love Hangover” by Diana Ross and the longest-running “love” No. 1 of the year, Wings’ “Silly Love Songs.” #04 – “How Deep Is Your Love,” Bee Gees Hot 100 Peak: No. 1 for three weeks (1977) Barry, Robin and Maurice Gibb hadn’t seen the script for the movie that became “Saturday Night Fever” when they wrote “How Deep Is Your Love” for the soundtrack. They weren’t even certain that there was a love scene in the film. They intended the song for Yvonne Elliman, but their manager Robert Stigwood insisted they record it themselves. #03 – “We Found Love” – Rihanna feat. Calvin Harris Hot 100 Peak: No. 1 for 10 weeks (2011) What could be more romantic than finding love in a “hopeless place”? Rihanna scored the biggest hit of her career (and the top ‘love’ song of the 21st century) with only her fourth Hot 100 entry to feature “love” in the title, following “If It’s Lovin’ That You Want” (2005), “Hate That I Love You” (2007) and her featured role on Eminem’s “Love the Way You Lie” (2010). #02 – “I’ll Make Love to You” – Boyz II Men Hot 100 Peak: No. 1 for 14 weeks (1994) When the...

Quoting Lonely Planet tourist guide: “Positano is the coast’s most picturesque and photogenic town, with steeply-stacked houses tumbling down to the sea in a cascade of sun-bleached peach, pink and terracotta colours.
