What is not true about destination wedding in Italy

Italy would be the destination of choice for many who would want to get married outside their country. The reasons are obvious. Italy is a placed with a landmark of history, beautiful culture, loving and friendly people and a center where the romantic atmosphere is exemplified.

With all of the above, no doubt it would be a good ground to solemnize a marriage. It is though disturbing that some people hold some myths about this legendary place for many reasons that are proven to not be true.

Here in this article, a look at some of those claims by people will be examined so you can get a true picture of what really holds in Italy if you intend having your destination wedding in Italy.

Italy is expensive for such venture

Italy may boast of the popular brands in fashion and designs known around the world, but this does not translate to making the wedding in Italy expensive to execute. Yes, Italy is known for luxury and glamor, yet, you can have your wedding done with less expense than you would do locally.

If you talk of the venues and decorations, you have less to spend because the venues are such that they already have the look desired. The medieval castles, villa, and halls have little to add in terms of decoration. You look at it this way; if you are giving yourself a treat in a wedding, a vacation with friends and your honeymoon all in one adventurous trip, would you not have saved much at the end?

The bureaucracy is an obstacle

Not that really. While it is not an obstacle to getting married in Italy legally, you will need to go through processes of getting the authorization which is applicable also anywhere around the world. There are stages you have to follow of which the final one would be to get the authorization requiring that both bride and groom appear for it three days to the wedding. What you will need to do here is to have a consultant who has been in this business and the documentation and the process won’t be a hassle for you.

Personalization for the wedding is not achievable

The wedding is yours to plan. Why can’t you have it personalized the way you want? With a wedding planner working according to your directions, it is yours to add or subtract in your wedding Planner Italy. The fact that the cultures in Italy may be an influence does not mean you can’t infuse what you want even if you are going to have a Trento marriage.

How to Deal with a Lack of Affection in Your Relationship

Tips on How To Save An Affection-Starved Marriage and Keep Your Relationship Happy

Affection can be one of the first things to go after children are born or when a marriage is in trouble. BUT it doesn’t have to mean something serious and it can be naturally restored as I will go on to explain.
Why after children? Hundreds of couples have shared with me that the affection they used to give to each other over time has been transferred to their children. Whilst this can easily happen couples without children can go through periods of lack of affection too.
Affection for many people is what makes a relationship a relationship.
If you are craving affection in your marriage right now and are longing to be hugged, kissed, or given affection through caring words or “I love you” message – you are not alone. Thousands if not millions of couples may find themselves longing to be desired and cherished and this is often because of bad advice that never works.
If you are upset about a lack of affection in your marriage you may be feeling lonely, ignored, unimportant and unloved. You may have started to see you husband or wife as distant, cold, self-centred or only interested in the children.
If this is happening in your relationship right now, read on as I will tell you what works and what doesn’t when it comes to saving a marriage from a lack of affection.
Marriage Counsellors or well-meaning friends may tell you to have a serious discussion with your spouse telling them that the lack of affection is bothering you.
This relationship advice presumes that your spouse did not know that you like affection or forgot all of a sudden!
Or that maybe they did not realise that they were not showing you affection and somehow didn’t notice it.
But telling your husband or wife to be more affectionate never works, perhaps you already know that from trying it in your own relationship.
If anything, it can drive your husband or wife further away.
Having had this issue come up hundreds of times in the couples I’ve supported over the years I know what works and what doesn’t.
So here are a few of my tips on saving a marriage from a lack of affection.

RELATIONSHIP ADVICE TIP – 1 STOP BRINGING IT UP
Talking about it (even if only occasionally will not get your husband or wife to change. Yet many relationship counselors may advise telling your spouse ” You are not being affectionate”
It doesn’t matter whether you beg, demand, joke, it never, ever works long-term or feel good.
Of course your husband or wife may do it when you have told them to, but if you have ever asked for affection and been given it on demand you know what I am talking about when I say -it feels horrible!

Safety Hazards in the Household

Accidents can happen in an instant. While most household hazards are commonly known and precautions are common sense; there are hazards that need extra precautions to protect the children in your home.

**Each year over 569 children die from strangulation, suffocation, and entrapment in household appliances.

Foster homes must be especially aware of hazards in the home; therefore, we have compiled a list of household hazards not always on our radar and ways to keep the children in your home safe.

1. Stove: Stove knobs and oven doors are a temptation for curious little ones learning to tune fine motor skills and are easily turned or opened. Safety locks designed specifically for stoves can prevent a child from climbing into the oven causing possible suffocation or being burned. (Cost range from $5 to $25)
2. Dishwasher: Like the stove; dishwasher doors are easily opened and a child can climb into if not locked when not in use.)
3. Toy chests: Like stoves and dishwashers, not having safety latches installed to prevent the lid from closing on toy chests can be very dangerous, easily trapping a small child inside.
4. Cords or wires: Long cords present a tripping or choking hazard. A small child can easily get caught in cords and become tangled causing injury even death from strangulation. Prevention is as simple as winding cords up tight and attaching zip or twist ties.
5. Window blind and curtain cords: If too long, blind and curtain cords are a choking hazard. It is suggested that these cords are wound up to a length no longer than 7 inches.
6. Televisions dressers: Children love to climb. By securing the dresser to the wall and installing drawer latches an injury from the dresser falling over can be prevented. A U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) report showed that, between 2000 and 2011, 349 people were killed by a falling television, appliance or piece of furniture; 84 percent of them were children under 9 years old. Televisions were most deadly, accounting for 62 percent of these fatalities. The CPSC reports that between 2006 and 2011 more than 100,000 injuries occurred from tipped TVs. From 2000 to 2011, falling TV’s caused 215 deaths; 96 percent of those fatalities were children younger than 10.
7. Swing sets: Children can be injured by wrapping rope or chain around the body or neck. It is important to talk to the children placed in your home about these dangers. After a time, swing materials begin to deteriorate, crack or fray. Check regularly and replace if needed.
8. House plants: Some house plants can be potentially poisonous. Best practice is to keep them out of reach of children. When purchasing, ask the store clerk if a plant poses a danger of poison.
9. Pets: Children are very curious and love to touch animals. Some children are afraid of animals. Some animals are fearful of children. Best practice when bringing a foster child into the home is to introduce the child to the family dog or cat slowly. Show them the animal is safe and teach them safe ways to touch an animal.
10. Overloaded electrical sockets and electrical wires running under carpets can pose a huge fire danger.
11. Toilets: Seats and covers can cause injury to little hands when they fall down quickly. The best way to avoid these injuries is to teach family members to put the seat and lid down when they are finished using the toilet.

The easy to your banquet hall

1. Get a headcount
Headcounts are important to have, from the starting point. It would all depend on the crowd and who you want the transport for. This is why, when you send out the invites, ask your attendees to confirm if they want to be picked and dropped.

2. Manage the out-of-towners
From day one, you would have guests and relatives and friends pouring in to help with the wedding and to attend it, from out of town. They would or wouldn’t know the city or town too well, which is why, it would be up to you to handle transportation for them. Right from picking them up from the airport or train stations or the bus depots, to bringing them to the wedding venue.

3.Advance booking saves the day
A good one month in hand is what you need to have when booking for wedding transportation, especially during the wedding season. Formal vehicles such as cars, and buses would always be in high demand.

4. Communication is the key
You need to get your word out to the attendees to let them know how they would be picked up and where or when. Spread the word through email and The not-so-tech-savvy folks attending your wedding, should be called the night before and all details of the transportation should be given.

5. A bridal party ride
This is especially for the hard-working souls behind your wedding- the bridesmaids and the groomsmen that need a break. Arrange for a bridal ride that would take them around town, to a party or for a night out on a spin. This helps them unwind and relax through all the rigmarole that is happening.

6. Never leave anyone stranded
Have someone to check, double check and to cross check with the attendees and the car or the bus company if all are picked up and on time. Never leave anyone stranded.

7.Ask your friends for help
Always ask your friends to be ready with their own personal vehicles to help ferry attendees to and from the venue. A backup plan for last minute arrivals can be a breather.

Keep in mind for your mandap decor

Size
One of the most important aspects when deciding on the mandap would be the size of the structure or the place. This helps exactly understand how much space would be needed for the rituals to happen, and the number of people that can be accommodated in its confines whilst the rituals are on.

Style wise
the style of a mandap can be any of them or a mix.. You cannot possibly have an open air mandap in the midst of July when the Monsoons lash hither thither, similarly go for bright colors if you are planning a day-time pheras.

Vastu
Since the Big Fat Indian wedding is deep rooted with astrological talks the positioning of the mandap too would have to be cared about. In accord with the Hindu culture and tradition, mostly the positioning would be towards the norther-eastern part of the venue.

Keeping it strong
It would be important to note the strength of the mandap, Keep in mind the strength of the mandap, especially when the varmala ceremony happens where a rage of family, friends, and visitors would clamber to come up and be there for the heavenly moment that happens.

Check with the seating arrangements
With the innumerable rituals we have in our Indian weddings
at the banquet hall in rohini, we don’t expect the family members to stand all through – the right seating arrangements have to be made. Ideally, the would-be-couple are made to sit eastwards, seated on the floor mostly.

Floral mandaps
For a touch of spring at your wedding, think about the beautiful floral touches for the mandap to be dolled up in. Decorate the canopy in vibrant Yellows and Orange shades of flowers, Decorate artifacts and wall hangings can be used to adorn the bright backdrops and to add more zest and vibrancy around.

Cross cultural theme
Flowers that can be used here are Orchids, Lilies, baby Roses and Carnations. Instead of draping the canopy pillars with garlands of flowers, use Silk cloth to drape the pillars of the mandap. Orchids and Carnations and a bunch of exotic flowers can be installed at the center and at the backdrop of the mandap too.

Mind the lighting
Lights would play a very important role in setting the mood and in creating that wonderful mise-en-scene you visualised your mandap to be, so paying good attention to that is a must. Lights would enhance the look of the mandap, and sets it apart from other weddings you have been to or seen. If the color tone of the mandap chosen is warm, using chandeliers would best enhance the look. For cool tone colors chosen for the mandap, fairy lights and LEDs work best.
