Organising a wedding is never easy and when you tie the knot in Italy, as I did seven weeks ago, you can throw in a lot of complicating factors. Such as 80 international guests, wedding planners who barely speak English and, of course, the Italian way of life, in which a week passes before they even think about replying to an email. It can get a little stressful, to say the least, but it really is the best day of your life. There is something special about professing your love to one another in front of your closest family and friends, and while I'm not hoping to find another husband, I would do it all again tomorrow if I could. Of course, there were things that didn't go to plan and the language barrier in Italy was a little testing at times. There was the time when my wedding planner told me it was a tradition to give all the guests confetti, and while I was ready to hand out little white pieces of paper, little did I know that confetti is the Italian word for sugar-coated almonds. After a quick change of plans, we were back on track. But sometimes I did feel like I was in a scene from Fawlty Towers.For instance, we had booked our rehearsal in the church the evening before the wedding, only to realise the church had been double booked with an actual wedding. So our rehearsal had to be played out in the public piazza dodging tourists and buskers as we practised walking down the ''aisle''. While I was not so impressed at the time, we all had a laugh and it is these little things that make your experience unique. That's why the biggest thing to remember is don't sweat the small stuff. My favourite part of the whole experience was shopping for the dress. I travelled to New York with my parents and literally dragged them around to every bridal shop to find ''the'' dress. As you can see by the photo of my dad, he was really excited by the whole experience. The biggest trouble I had was trying to find the right style. I didn't know what style I wanted but I knew I didn't want the typical strapless princess dress. I wanted something slinky and elegant, but it's almost as though that style doesn't exist -- there's just a sea of strapless gowns decorated in various ways. Not that I don't like strapless wedding gowns -- if you have a body
