The Wedding Care

The Wedding Care’s philosophy

Sometimes mathematics is just an opinion: we believe that 1 +1 equals 1.
Strange? No, for us it is a poetic formula for a wedding in Italy.

1 +1 = a couple, the result of your love, the meeting of two special people. You, with all your plans and wishes, you, after "I do", will become a family.

1 +1 = a team, the sum of your union with our staff who will plan your wedding in Italy and they will guide you during this wonderful adventure, forming a single team with the common goal of providing a unique and inimitable event.

We know we have the great privilege of organizing the most significant day of your life and it is this that guides us in every moment of our work. There are many ways to give birth to a poem. Ours is to draw the perfect picture for your dream of love.

Your special wedding planner

We mix insight and passion with good taste and clear ideas. We mix reliability, experience, imagination and creativity as needed, with a pinch of international flavor, and bake this mixture to meet constant new challenges. This is our recipe!

For these reasons, choosing us as a wedding planner means that you guarantee yourself an elegant wedding that will surprise you and your guests. Choosing us means choosing a service with an international standard of excellence. We are an Italian company but we are also in New York City and Los Angeles, our staff is willing to listen to your desires, and to make them happen.

Being 100% Italian allows us to offer you unlimited knowledge of the area you have chosen for your wedding, and to offer suggestions that suit all your needs; from simple to sophisticated ones.

You are about to pronounce the most important "I do" of your life. But there is another word, which you certainly will not regret. Saying "yes" to The Wedding Care means putting a seal of exclusivity on your wedding. We will take care of the entire organization in every detail, leaving you just the most romantic moments of this great journey. Your only concern will be to say " I do."

Getting married in Italy

There's no better place to say " I do" no better destination wedding than Italy.

No matter what your definition of romance and love might be, there is no denying that you can find what you are looking for in Italy, because no other place in the world can offer a scenario as poetic as Italy.

Artists and Poets of all time and places have left their souls here, and linked their names forever to this land. You can do it too, by choosing this country as the frame of your love. There is no other place more magical to start a walk of life with the person you love.

Those who choose Italy choose the style. Italy: It's beautiful and it knows it, yet without arrogance. With its breathtaking scenery, its villages and its cities, Italy has earned a reputation as "the garden of Europe". And you can choose any part of this beautiful garden for your wedding in Italy.

Testimonials

  • Breana + Matt

    Upon meeting Cristina at The Wedding Care, I knew two things: we were going to be friends and she knew EXACTLY what I was talking about when describing my dream wedding.

     In the following months, she funneled my ideas in to a day that was timeless and whimsical. No detail was left out, even some that I had forgotten about and was so delighted to see! Our day was pure magic. Our guests thought so, we thought so, and we have the brilliant and committed team at The Wedding Care, who worked tirelessly, to thank!

    You are in incredibly safe hands with Cristina

    "You are in incredibly safe hands with Cristina. Like many other couples, we were planning our wedding in Italy from afar and were looking for someone to help guide us in both the lead-up to the wedding as well as orchestrate the weekend there. At every turn, we were surprised to the upside. The vendors Cristina connected us to were impeccable, the weekend went off without a single hitch, and the quality / detail of every aspect of the wedding was superb. Cristina has great taste, great relationships, and is a pleasure to work with. We couldn't have been happier with how everything turned out - she is absolutely deserving of your trust. “

    Cristina made our dream come true!

    Cristina made our dream come true. We are a couple from Munich, Germany and had this big vision of a wedding in the hills of Florence. All of Cristina’s ideas and visions always sounded amazing to me but nothing compared to the reality it became.

    Cristina only works with the best suppliers from around the region and all the companies she recommends are more than professional. You can always feel that she is right by your side no matter how hard the times get. We were planing this wedding with 100 guests during coronavirus and postponed the date from July to September. In the end Cristina planned this whole thing twice and on our wedding day we felt like the vip guests. We didn’t have to stress for a second because Cristina and her team coordinated everything just perfectly.

    Our wedding was a week ago and we are still getting calls from our guests telling us that they have never seen a more beautiful wedding. Thank you so much for everything Cristina!

    Our experience with the Wedding Care will live forever in our hearts and in the memory of those who were there.

    “Our experience with the Wedding Care will live forever in our hearts and in the memory of those who were there. Our wedding was nothing short of magical and I have to thank Cristina for that. She is a true artist. She has impeccable good taste. She understood what we wanted to accomplished and sometimes could articulate what we wanted better than we could. I felt that we could ask for anything and that she could make it come true. And in fact, it worked exactly that way. She listened with attentiveness and kindness and was next to us every step of the way, so that all the stress was lifted off our shoulders and we only had to enjoy ourself and live our dream. We felt that she truly cared about our wedding and it showed in her care for every detail. We had a clear idea of what we wanted, but I have to say that she made our day much more unforgettable and beautiful than I thought it could be. She collaborates with talented florists, photographers, caterers: it was easy to choose the best ones. Her team was efficient and always had a smile. I will never forget her and how happy she made us and our guests. The Wedding Care was one of the best decisions of my life.”

We are so incredibly grateful for all of the loving care that you infused into every detail. We genuinely had so much fun planning everything with you from the start. Every vendor you recommended was absolutely perfect, and every unique detail was executed above our expectations. We could not be happier that we trusted you completely.

We are all still in awe of your work!! Cristina, you are so much more than just a wedding planner!!! You have the sweetest soul and we are so glad to have you in our lives. We could not be happier.

    “We cannot thank The Wedding Care enough for coming to the rescue and saving our wedding!”

    Our experience was fraught with difficulties and with two months to go until our wedding we contacted Cristina in the hope she could be our stylist as we were not having any luck with local suppliers. She was incredibly supportive and sensitive of the problems we were experiencing yet she was willing to help us at such late notice. Not long after we had Cristina on board we were heartbroken with the news that we could no longer have our wedding at our venue. We moved our wedding from one end of Sicily to the other, forcing us to change everything including suppliers and all the styling to fit the new venue. Every step of the way Cristina was there to help, even beyond her role as our stylist. She was always available, a pleasure to communicate with, and her positivity held us together through our nightmare. She understood exactly what we wanted and executed every last detail to give us what we believe to be the most stylish and beautiful wedding we could ever have dreamed of. Everyone was amazed at not only the beauty of the event but how everything came together so perfectly in just a matter of weeks. In the weeks leading up to our wedding after everything we had been through, all the stress and sleepless nights, there were many times we did not want to go ahead with it. The night before our big day I sneaked into the venue and I was blown away and in tears seeing what Cristina and her team had created. It was at this moment I felt excited for the first time and I knew we were going to have a great party! Without Cristina we could never have had the wedding we wished for, and for that we are forever thankful. Our only regret is that we did not find her earlier.

    "Cristina was a dream to work with when we planned our Tuscan wedding from New York City"

    The idea of an Italian wedding seemed either impossible or too much work to be practical, but she made this incredibly daunting process easy and it was invaluable to have someone local in Italy to take care of the in-person tasks. Cristina has great taste and we felt like she really understood our vision for the two-day affair. I'm so grateful for every vendor she connected us with; they were all excellent, experienced, and professional. I think since she has spent much time in the United States and married an American, she is in a unique position to deliver a true Italian wedding while still considering certain details that American clients expect when getting married. We absolutely recommend Cristina and her team.

    "Happening upon Cristina and The Wedding Care was the start of what would turn out to be an incredibly magical journey that resulted in our dream wedding"

    When I found her website I immediately felt that I had landed on a “global” professional that could realize the elegant, tasteful event I’d envisioned in my mind and understand the specific needs of my multicultural partner and I: and I was right. Planning a destination wedding is a challenge, albeit a rewarding one, and having her on our team was invaluable to the success of the event.

    From the very beginning of our working relationship, Cristina exhibited everything you could possibly want in a wedding planner and designer and more. She was patient and flexible, which were such necessary qualities for a couple planning a destination wedding. At every stage of the planning process, Cristina coordinated and communicated with the perfect vendors for our event and did all of the leg work, which completely eased our anxieties of being so far away. It was entirely apparent that she is an individual that places high value on building strong professional relationships, and this shows in the level of service and personalization these vendors in turn provide her clients.

    Your wedding day is a momentous occasion. You want a wedding planner and designer that can tailor your event specifically to the unique relationship that you as a couple share. You want a professional that can guide you through the process. But most importantly, you want someone that can make you and your significant other feel special. Cristina achieved that in a tremendous way, and aside from my groom, she was the best choice I made in regards to our wedding.

    Cristina provided the local knowledge, expertise and connections needed for a destination wedding in Florence, Italy

    "Cristina provided the local knowledge, expertise and connections needed for a destination wedding in Florence, Italy. Beyond a deep-rooted understanding of the area, and its venues and suppliers, we thoroughly appreciated just how organized and meticulous she was in preparing every detail of our wedding. From negotiating with suppliers on our behalf, to helping us navigate the intricacies and finer details of a wedding in Italy, to keeping us calm and collected when all couples inevitably begin to stress out before the big day, Cristina was a steadying presence and a trusted partner during the entire process. We highly recommend working with her!"

    WOW where do we start in expressing our huge thanks to Cristina and The Wedding Care for making our wedding day the best ever!

    It was absolutely perfect on every level and was way above our expectations. It was a complete and utter pleasure working with Cristina in the build up to the wedding.
    We frequently Skyped and emailed and she took on board everything I asked for and looked into it all to find the best way to achieve all the things I envisioned.

    Cristina is one of the loveliest people and she became more than just our wedding planner but a dear friend and a very special person in our life. I felt a complete ease in the run up to the wedding and knew that she had everything covered. She was there with me the day before and went through all the details with me to make sure everything was how we thought. I will never forget the feeling of when I walked out and saw everything all set up, it looked magical and completely took my breathe away.

    Cristina and her team where amazing in getting everything done and left me to get ready and enjoy my time before I walked out. We had the most incredible day and didn’t have to worry about a single thing. Everything was taken care of and we were left to enjoy the special day with our closest friends and family.

    I cannot recommend Cristina and her team enough, it just takes away all the stress and pressure and leaves you to take in the most over whelming day of your life.

    The only way to describe The Wedding Care and our wedding day in summary is "perfection".

    Cristina made my wedding a dream come true and I can't begin to thank her enough for all her hard work to ensure that everything ran smoothly.

    Cristina constantly came up with original ideas to suit my style and her organization of all her amazing vendors  on the day made for a magical day! The service we received was absolutely excellent!!!

    The Wedding Care arranged everything- the legalities, priest, church, music, transport, caterers, venue, decorations and even the day after brunch. Cristina had outstanding organizational skills, always followed through, and was  knowledgeable and accommodating to all my ideas, wants and needs. 
    Her exquisite management of every detail made our wedding day carefree, such that we were able to be spontaneous and enjoy ourselves, which is what we loved. In the end, we  also made a  dear friend.

    We simply could not have done this without The Wedding Care.

  • Annamaria + Luca

    Luca and I could not have found a better person to organize our special day. Cristina has the rare sensitivity to interpret desires and create them according to the other person’s style and taste.

     Since I was a little girl my dream was to get married in one of the most beautiful islands in the world, Capri. To organize such a complex event with guests from all over Italy would have been impossible without her.

    She always gave me the best advice and her suggestions were always thoughtful and elegant.
    The results were and stunning and amazing for us and all of our guests. Our dream came true and thanks to Cristina we were able to share this dream with our guests.

    Thank you from the heart

    When you decide to get married, after telling your family about how your future husband more or less kneeled to propose—you completely panic! Why? Because you like everything, want everything, but you don’t have any idea where to begin.

    It was at the end of November, and without a ring, nor a proposal we entered the church of Santi Luca e Martina in Rome and reserved the date of our wedding.
    Astonished by what we had just done we returned home to contemplate the how, where, and what.

    That is when we began to look at thousands of sites for information and suggestions for the perfect wedding. Even though I already knew that I wanted to have a wedding planner by my side-I needed to find the Right One!
    Between one lead and another we found The Wedding Care. Speaking with Cristina Ditta, we immediately realized that we had something different in front of us - different from the typical organizations that make you feel like just another number. Nothing was prepackaged and everything could be exactly the way we wanted it. We had in front of us the person that would really make our wedding day the happiest day of our life. Resourcefulness, skill, professionalism, detail oriented, friendship, beauty,

    The Wedding Care represented all these things to us. It’s in vain that I write how beautiful, elegant, and refined that was day was—our photos serve as testimonies and are probably more objective than we can ever be. It was Cristina that made the difference.

    The difference is that special feeling that actually remains inside longafter. So as if we haven’t thanked you enough we would like to thank you again for being close to us and for giving us a magnificent day where love was the only true protoganist. Oh I almost forgot…the ring finally came.

  • Licia + Fabio

    To trust someone you don't know and not have any regrets, it is something absolutely wonderful.

    Leading a busy lifestyle and having to manage a variety of work projects we sought the services of The Wedding Care five months before the wedding. Cristina was indispensable for us, without her we would not have been able to pronounce the important phrase "Yes, I do."

    Not only is she someone who we immediately connected with but she is also very professional. Her proposals were well researched and created with high level of taste. She offered millions of solutions to satisfy our desires and to make that day very special and stress free.

    Thank you very much!!!

    “How does one handle emotions while having to think about every detail - from the gifts for the guests to the music. Its practically impossible.

    Doing everything alone makes everything more complicated. Is it the right catering company? Live band or a DJ? What type of paper for the invitations? The wedding bouquet? The flower arrangements for the tables? Then we discovered The Wedding Care. Cristina takes complete care of her wife and groom. She immediately won us over.

    First she studies the couple, their tastes and their passions. And in the end she realizes your dreams. We still remember the day she presented the project to us. We were full of emotions and enchanted as we watched the screen. After only a couple of meetings she was able to encapsulate the exact mood of our wedding- chic vintage style with special pieces that reflected our professions as journalists.

    She took care of everything from the floral arrangements at the church and the reception, to the sourcing and placement of fine antique furniture in the villa—and it was done with a delicate and precise touch. Cristina handled all the logistics while everything was being prepared and worked with her suppliers who were very professional.

    With her you will never have the feeling of having forgotten something or have the feeling of being abandoned. Not only does she have the ability to pay attention to every single detail, but she also understands the anxiety of the bride and knows how to deal with the nervousness of the groom without ever being invasive. She was with us for the entire year till the day we got married.

    Everything was amazing: the candles on the steps of the altar, antique furniture, sweets on the antique radio, the seating arrangement board created with a vintage typewriter, and the photo corner with frames and glasses. Our guests were left speechless and to this day we still remember many of the wedding design details of our wedding day.

    It was the party we had always wanted and Cristina knew how to make our dream come true.
