The famous central SquareIf you are arranging getting married in Siena next year or this year in June like my friend, we think you’ve made a fabulous venue choice. We suggest that you book the service (in the town hall) through a wedding planner, but you need not engage him or her to do much more than that for you.

There is a lot you can organize yourselves and with cheap flights available  throughout Europs, many people can go to Siena beforehand to arrange a restaurant for the reception. It is after all a great excuse for soaking up the ambience of the lovely city for an additional enjoyable and relaxing weekend!

For those readers that have not yet been to see it, Siena is a medieval city of brick, packed with unspoilt charm and lovely old buildings steeped in history. From a terrific spot like the top of the Mangia Tower its sea of roof tiles blends into a landscape of steep, twisting stone alleys; and further away is the backdrop of the charming fields vineyards and olive groves of the Tuscan countryside with its softness and rolling hills.

Cyprus tres in the countryside near SienaThis cityscape hides dozens of Gothic palaces; plus pastry shops galore(!), unseen neighborhood rivalries (which culminate in the annual palio (horse race) around the square) and altarpieces of unsurpassed beauty. Through the Middle Ages Siena flourished artistically; for two centuries (13th and 14th) the Sienese school, represented by Duccio da Boninsegna, Simone Martini and the Lorenzetti brothers, rivaled the Florentine masters as the most important in Italy.

The Chianti region is the quintessence of Tuscany. I have to tell you it has the most incredibly beautiful countryside, vineyards, olive groves and forests and they all add to its ambiance. The signature of this area is the sight of all those tall, slender cypress trees which dominate the landscape crowning the hilltops as you wide through the sleepy rural roads.

The vineyards alternate with silvery-gray olive groves, where much of the finest extra-virgin olive oil in Italy is produced. Look out for the fields of saffron. This is a highly prized spice more precious and costly than gold, which are abundant in this Region.

Another wedding location to search for in Google is the Villa Isabella.

Surrounded by twenty eight acres of lush olive groves and gardens, the main villa measures 1,500 square meters and succeeds winningly in combining tradition with modern comfort - just right for your wedding stay.

Weddings are important and require a myriad of decisions to be made ahead of time. There are no specifically right or wrong turns to take when it comes to planning and going through with your wedding. However, research can prove to be useful in helping you set in stone the decisions you feel are right for you. The tips below are there to help point you on the right path to your happily ever after.

If you desire a summer theme wedding, try having it in a natural place. The beauty of outside spaces that would otherwise be unsuitable can become fabulous places for a wedding. Some of these popular venues can include, gardens and beaches. These unusual places can help inspire your theme. You can even have a BBQ.

Instead of having rice thrown at your wedding, you may want to consider getting confetti instead. Rice is messy and can get caught in undesirable places on your body. Also, rice is more expensive and more difficult to clean up. You can buy confetti at any discount or party store.

Most weddings are planned to fall on the weekend. If you are looking to save money, consider having your wedding during the week. Venues and hotels have higher prices during the weekend since that is when most people want those things. Switching to a weekday could save you a decent amount of money.

Do not plan a destination wedding without taking the legal requirements of your location into account. Whether it is residency requirements, fees, or any other red tape - you should have all your needs addressed - before you begin the task of booking hotels and services for the big day.

It is important to make the right decisions that you won't regret making later. Planning your wedding is entirely personal and the decisions differ from individual to individual. Therefore, there are no right or wrong decisions. Apply the tips from the article above to help you feel that your wedding was a success with no regrets.
