I'm Rachelle Saenz here to give you a tip on how to plan your Italian wedding. When it comes time to plan your Italian wedding, think about the field that you want to create. Typically Italian weddings are tons of fun and incorporate lots of lively dancing. The dancing starts as early as the ceremony. When guests come to your ceremony, they'll be ready to dance at the very end. There's a tradition called the grand march. At the end of the ceremony, brides and grooms traditionally would leave the Italian ceremony linked in arms. Their guests would follow them as they walk the streets all the way to their reception site. Once at the reception site, guests were greeted with favors of almonds of course which is tradition when it comes to Italians. After that, receptions usually have the hora. Everyone's seen it and everyone loves it. Brides and grooms are traditionally raised on their chairs and everyone chants good cheer to them. This is a fabulous time for an Italian wedding for you to really play up the fun and the festive feel. Think about too, lots of color and just lots of flair for your wedding. Glassware, plates, all very important. A traditional Italian wedding involves what else, lots of food and lots of drink. So make sure that your table settings really play this up.
