Book your ceremony site and the priest, rabbi, mayor or the officiant you want to marry you
Book your reception venue in Italy, if you haven't done it yet, together with an ideal number of rooms you will probably need for your guests and make sure to sign a contract
Think of who will be your Maid of Honor and your bridesmaids
Start having fun with them and with the most important people in your life and scheduling a couple of appointments in some bridal salons
Start planning your engagement party, write a guest list, and choose a date, according to the list and the date select a venue and send invites
Start thinking of which kind of memories you would like to have from your wedding day and look for a photographer and a videographer

Start looking for a florist, save all the floral pictures that you like and schedule some Skype calls with them
Start selecting a caterer considering how much you are planning to spend per person, if your wedding reception does not have a restaurant
Start envisioning yourself walking down the aisle and think of what music you would like for such a touching moment, if and what music you want for your reception as well as for the party and start selecting musicians, Dj, band or singers.
