Hiring a wedding planner is a personal choice. While some brides may have the time to organise their wedding themselves, some brides may not. Many brides have to work as normal in the run-up to their big day, and so acquiring the help of a professional wedding planner can be the most beneficial idea.

There is a well-established truth that finding your wedding dress is one of the most difficult tasks in the run-up to your wedding day.

With a wide choice of accessories, such as footwear, veils, hats and shoulder-covers, without forgetting the groom, with advice and assistance from tailors for highly professional men, these ateliers are there with open arms for any brides wanting that their dress don the ‘Made in Italy’ tag.
