The wedding in Puglia
People ask me why the wedding in Puglia is so special. In the last years I got an idea. I think the wedding in Puglia is special for two main reasons. The first: in Puglia we love weddings so much, so all the vendors are used to treating the wedding day in a sacredness way. Come on, let's face it, in theme of weddings, Puglia really doesn't need lessons!
The second reason is the same that leads many people to come here in holidays, buy a farm house, and stay there for life: THE LIGHT. A natural intense glow, that is reflected in the white stone construction. This light warms the body and soothes the soul. This stress-free air make the holiday feel that you breathe in this region.... also when it's not holiday time.

Puglia is right, but where?
You're thinking Yes Puglia, but where? The crystalline sea of Salento, or the wild nature of Gargano? The history of the Land of Bari, or the Trulli in the Valle d'Itria? It isn't an easy choice, but it will be a true success!
Here in Puglia we have a culture of weddings that goes far beyond the imagination! Here, all the suppliers doesn't feel provide a simple service, but bring off A real mission! The bride and groom are treaties with sacredness and the details are minutely taken care.
Italian and foreign peoples will enjoy of this special treatment that Puglia reserves to wedding planning.
There are even restaurants specialized in wedding receptions. They offer to the couples very organized and perfect services. No need to think about anything, they think to all. They have an indoor kitchen and you can choose between different menu options. In a lot of these restaurants you can also be joined by an indoor wedding planner, which will assist you. Sometimes this service is included in the price, sometimes not. These kind of restaurants are called "sala ricevimenti".

If you are searching for highest level of customization, you can opt for a lot of different accommodations (private villas, bed & breakfasts, farmhouses, cottages, restaurants by the sea, beaches....), which don't deal exclusively weddings but they are accustomed to this kind of requests. In some cases they have an indoor kitchen, in other cases you will choose an external catering service. It is such a personalized service, so the Organization could be more complicated .... but also much more fun. And the result will be no doubt very chic! And then ... you can always ask help from a wedding planner!

How long does it take to organize a wedding in Puglia?
Puglia is an exclusive place to have a destination wedding, so you should book early all the suppliers. Arrange for a wedding takes a few months, but if you don't want the risk that suppliers you've chosen would already engaged for the day of your wedding, you should move at least one year before.
What do you have book before? Church, location, photographer, florist or wedding planner? It depends on you! What's your priority? Ask yourself what you could never give up: do you want to celebrate the ceremony necessarily in a particular Church? Do you can't really imagine your wedding without that photographer?
If you have, instead, a preferred date to celebrate your wedding, in that case you need to be more flexible. Please, note that thevendors you have selected, may not be available on that date. You could be forced to change your mind about the restaurant, the florist, or about the hair stylist .... for example.
IMPORTANT! Keep in mind that all the suppliers have a lot of work during the summer wedding season (from April to October). So, if you want organize a perfect wedding, you should define all details by April.
