When you hit the 30 day countdown, it’s time to make those final checks and make those last minute preparations to ensure your Italian wedding is as special as possible.

With 1 month to go until the big day, everything that is essential to the smooth running of your wedding should be in place but it makes sense to re-confirm plans with the various service providers.

Of course, if you have decided to use Venice Events to make arrangements on your behalf we will regularly update you with information on our progress.

Do a Final Count

To ensure everything runs smoothly on the day it is always a good idea to get a final count of guest numbers.

If you are planning on serving food or drinks to your guests, your catering provider will appreciate a final count so that they can make changes if necessary. In Italy, food is the centre of any celebration and we can arrange for the services of an caterers if you are having your wedding in a venue that does not have the capability to provide food.

Entertainment Plans

After the seriousness of the ceremony it’s important for you and your guests to have some fun together. Ensuring that entertainment plans in place and confirmed is another item to tick off your list. We offer a range of entertainment options which can be viewed here. These range from acrobats to traditional carnival actors such as Harlequin and Colombina.

Music

Continuing on from entertainment, no wedding (especially an Italian wedding) would be complete without music. Venice Events can assist in organising the music for the ceremony, the aperitif or cocktail hour and the reception. We also ensure you are in compliance with Italian law by securing the necessary licences.

Documenting Your Day

Have you organised your professional wedding photographer yet? If not, now is the time.

Having been organising wedding for over 20 years we have built up a lengthy portfolio of tried and trusted wedding photographers who we consider to be excellent. Each photographer offers various packages so you can choose what suits you best. See our tips for choosing a wedding photographer.

Visuals

If you would like additional decorations to complement the table decorations it is still possible to organise this with 1 month to go. If you are renting a space such as a palazzo, villa or a garden we can source a range of decorations and visuals from lighting to carpets or even DJ equipment and other technical requirements.

Stretch the Budget

If your budget allows, why not splash out on something extra such as some luxury transport. Of course this option depends on your venue but we can organise various forms of transport; luxury wooden boats or gondolas if you are near a lake or, quirky vehicles such as a classic Fiat 500 or Vespas.
