Say Yes - Wedding and More promotes the creation of an innovative formula, both social and entrepreneurial, for the organization of Wedding Planning events dedicated to the LGBTQI target *. Because of the social change underway and following the approval of the Italian law on Civil Unions, we believe that there is a new target that deserves an investment of energy, time and resources. The activity focuses on the entire creative and organizational process, taking care of every detail of the marriage event of LGBTQI couples*, offering additional services. Not only wedding: Say Yes also organizes parties, ceremonies, Hen parties, Stag/Bachelor parties and much more!
Giovanna and her sister Michela are LGBTQI* activist since 2013. Since the institution of the Civil Unions came into force in the Italian legal system, she has seen the possibility of concretizing her dream: to fight for people's civil rights and to bring a positive change in society and in the life of everyone.
Thus, thanks to a regional grant from Apulia Region ("Pin – Pugliesi innovative"), they had the opportunity to present an innovative project in the Salento area and throughout the South of Italy in general: to open a wedding planning agency for Civil Unions.
Their team, together with the Say Yes Friends network, made up of professionals from the wedding sector and other operators, allows them to offer their customers services of various kinds according to the needs of couples: Handling of paperwork and documents, Planning and Supervision of the Civil Union, Location, Themed and non-theme fittings, Wedding Favors, Clothes, Banqueting and catering service, Wedding lists, Design and planning of investments, Photographers and video services, Make-up and hairstyle, Make-up Artists, Vintage Car Rental. Accommodation for marries and guests (b&b, apartments, hostels, flats.), Invited Transfer Service, Entertainers for children and baby-sitters, Floral Decorations, Entertainers, street artists, musicians and singers, DJs, Fireworks, Security service.
The international network of Say Yes is well prepared to welcome couples who choose our land as a set to live and celebrate their dream. Their team is well prepared and trained thanks to the experience gained in organizing international events and, therefore, can provide language, intercultural and logistic support.
THE BRIDES PROJECT
"The Brides" is a project by "Soul & Pepper" and QBe Project, in collaboration with "LeA- Liberamente E Apertamente". A video to tell the love story between two young women after the approval of the Civil Unions under the Italian Law. The moment of the ¨I do¨ and the love story between two brides. A wonderful couple, a magical place, a splendid day.
