All of us have been dreaming of it for ages and when the day comes, a few hours and it’s gone! But what an unforgettable day!

Before talking about how to select the right one for you, I’d like to draw your attention on two very interesting stylists. Their wedding gowns are for unconventional brides, no mass-production.

The first one is perfect for a shabby chic wedding.

The second one  for a neoclassic wedding .

Both will surprise your guests with something nobody would expect!       ...

You have selected a number of agencies and professional wedding planners. Good!

How to evaluate the WP’s expertise?

  • Visit his/her website; it will give you an idea of his/her personal tastes.
  • Send an e-mail. If they answer later than 24 hours, it is a bad sign…. a very bad sign!
  • Arrange a meeting and study their look, attire and approach. These will give you lots of clues. He/she will be with you on your wedding day, so has to be nice ...

Wedding dress

Posted by Giusy D'Ambrosio on Sunday, November 17, 2013, In : wedding dress 

This is my corner at a stunning catwalk organized by Idea Sposa, a huge atelier for brides and grooms in San Vito dei Normanni, a town 10 minutes from Ostuni.

If you are marrying in a foreign country, consider buying your wedding dress on site in order to have assistance in the days before the wedding.

In Italy the best ateliers have their own dressmakers who can make changes to your dress even the day before the wedding (many brides loose weight in the last month!)

Many couples believe that with a big company, offering tested packages, their event will be a success. It will! All weddings are a success, unless the bride runs away from the church or the groom doesn’t show up! So, what’s the difference between a big company and a freelance wp?

Big companies give you the certainty of packages tested over and over again but your wedding will be like many others! Moreover, you’ll pay the company for the service and, without even realizing it, you’ll pa...

He proposed and you said YES, I DO!

And now you’re wondering if you’re able to manage the organization of the big day and any other pre-wedding event you’d like to share with the people you love.

About Me


Giusy D'Ambrosio I was born in the amazing and difficult city of Naples, Italy. I grew up on a land between the Volcano and the sea. Here I found my twin soul, my love, my husband and now business partner, Mimmo Morena. We married on a rainy Friday in May 1995 – against the will of our families. I was the too emancipated city girl, he was a country boy with a job that wasn’t a “true” job – professional basketball player. Anyway, we did it. Both families took part in the wedding, we had 280 guests. I didn’t care about anything but my dress and bouquet. The dress was designed and tailor-made for me by Nuage – Naples. As to flower decorations, I told the florist I loved red roses. The only thing I cared for was reaching the altar! Maybe this is why today I do love organising every single detail of a wedding – my brides and grooms get the best out of my time and expertise.
