my dream will be coming true in Dec when I marry the love if my life in beautiful Lake Orta, Italy!!
I am so excited but also a little stressed over the planning. We will be in Switzerland first then Italy. I am almost set on hotels, things to do, etc. but I am discouraged with a hair stylist, the quotes are $500-$1000 just to do my hair!! Part of this is travel cost, I am having a hard time reaching or finding a salon in Lake Orta to cut down travel cost. I am hoping there are some brides here that either live in Italy or got married there that may know some good hair stylists?
Would love to hear any other input on fave places or things to see, tips, etc for Italy or Switzerland! The plan is Zurich to Lucerne to Interlaken, then Orta for ceremony and then Florence and Rome.

@ZestyBee143: hello and congrats on your upcoming wedding! As I write you I am currently at Villa Crespi in Lake Orta! I am getting married at Villa Bossi this Friday 9/20/13. I have my wedding trial hair and makeup in a few hours at Me and You salon just outside of town. I have been planning the wedding with Distinctive Italy Weddings since 3/13 and I have been going off of their recommendations for services. I can let you know my experience with this salon if you are still interested. 🙂

@Italybound: Congrats on your marriage!! That is such a coincidence that you were at Villa Crespi! That is where I planned to have our ceremony but just a few weeks ago we decided to switch to Rome so we could have photos with the Colosseum and Capitol.
How did you like the services for hair? May I ask which photographer you used? I will be using Jay Studio.
