I think to know what good thoughts there are now in your mind…But now it’s time to start planning the biggest, and most exclusive party of your
life.It may seem like an almost impossible task right now, but with the help of Exclusive Puglia Weddings’s staff everything will seem
One of the ﬁrst things to do is to set a budget and to talk about this aspect with your future husband or your parents.
After you’ve discussed the budget, you need to work out what type of wedding you want.Are you dreaming a white beach with the scent of the sea and
the sweet sound of the waves?
Or you are thinking about walking through a green lawn, surrounded by the romantic movement of the olive trees?
Maybe you would prefer a ceremony in a castle like a princess?
Now is the time to start thinking about the big elements of the day because these need to be booked well in advance.
Things like the venue and the entertainment may have forward bookings one or even two years in advance, so if you are felt in love of a location in Puglia, set up a visit as soon as possible.
Exclusive Puglia Weddings’s private counselor will organize the visit to different locations. I will help you plan the day.

The big day is getting even closer now, so it’s time to start looking at the ﬁner details.
First up, give your groom a job to do – let him organise the suits for himself, the best man, the ushers and, in some cases, the father of the bride.
It’s very important start thinking and writing about who you’re going to invite in relation to your budget.
If you want to invite lots of people, consider having a later ceremony so you will have time to thank they with most serenity.

them for long time.
