How can you forget…

Here at Ottavio we know what it means to be busy. It sounds silly, but you cannot forget these key things at your wedding…

The dress


The venue


The bridesmaids 


The groomsmen



The food and drink




After spending months looking through bridal magazines, trying on countless gowns in the fitting room and potentially spending more on one item of clothing than you ever will again, you finally found The Dress. Your husband swooned and your friends couldn’t stop telling you how gorgeous you looked on the big day. Your dress is so pretty that you wish you could wear it every weekend! Unfortunately, you can’t. Well, you could…but you might get a raised eyebrow or two. So now what?



The Ottavio Nuccio Gala UK Team have come up with three things you could do with your wedding dress…

1) Save your dress as a keepsake

Save the dress. Your wedding is one of the best days of your life, if you want to keep it as a memento you have every right to do so.

2) Check with your daughter first before giving it away

Your daughter may want to wear your dress. Lots of cultures see passing down the dress as a sign of good luck.

3) Use the fabric from your gown to make something completely new

Think outside of the box you can easily reuse the fabric to make cushions, shorter gowns – literally anything you want!


Elegance goes hand-in-hand with romance. So keep that in mind when choosing honeymoon destinations.
