Find your table! IV

Other three ideas for creating the seating plan for your special day!

Castello di Vincigliata – Fiesole (Florence)
The grandmother’s antique mirror that you can found in your attic or cellar, can be a great idea. It’s elegant and it gives the charm of yesteryear.
Crystal drops from an old chandelier, satin ribbon and sparkling decorations: the result is really bright!

Villa Miani – Rome
Villa Miani is one of the most popular venues for weddings, not only for its peerless panorama, but also for the sumptuousness of its salons.
This tableau is elegantly printed and embellished by a beautiful frame that perfectly fits with the neoclassical style of the villa.

Villa Aurelia, Rome
Well, this is just the beginning of the process!
The event was so challenging that unfortunately we have not had time to take a picture. However, this photo shows a beautiful and classic golden frame and the idea of creating a sort of waves with satin strings on which to place the cards pasted with glue.
As soon as our official photographers will provide us with a photo, we will post it here, because the effect is amazing!

Dream Weddings on Lake Como

« That branch of the lake of Como, which extends towards the south, is enclosed by two unbroken chains of mountains, which, as they advance and recede, diversify its shores with numerous bays and inlets. Suddenly the lake contracts itself, and takes the course and form of a river, between a promontory on the right, and a wide open shore on the opposite side. The bridge which there joins the two banks seems to render this transformation more sensible to the eye, and marks the point where the lake ends, and the Adda again begins – soon to resume the name of the lake, where the banks receding afresh, allow the water to extend and spread itself in new gulfs and bays. »
“I Promessi Sposi” (The Betrothed) by Alessandro Manzoni

In addition to Tuscany, Rome and the Amalfi Coast – of which we will tell soon -, another amazing option for unforgettable weddings in Italy, is the surrondings of Lake Como.
