In Tuscany there are also so many art cities as Florence, Siena and our pretty town… Lucca!
With its strategic position and classy atmosphere is the ideal destination for a wedding weekend.
But first of all, what is a wedding weekend?
It is usually a 3 days celebration:
the couple decides to get married not at home but invites their guests to fly away with them.
Destination? Destination Wedding.
The wedding will last 3 days, there will be time to welcome everybody at the venue, organize activities together, plan a rehearsal dinner .
Finally (but not last) the wedding day!
Why not last?
Because the day after.. it’s time to brunch all together!
