Marry Me: Weddings Italian Style

On Thursday nights, Vibrant TV showcases a variety of great Italian television imports. Marry Me is a comedy drama hybrid series about the business of planning someone else’s perfect day. The action takes place in Trieste, a multicultural scenic port on the very edge of Northern Italy.

Roman transplant, Ugo, recently owned a book store near the Piazza Unità d’Italia. Nora arrived in Trieste from Sicily and has recently lost her position in the financial district of the city. Money problems force the idyllic couple to the aid of their relative Aunt Clo Clo. For free room and board, they agree to manage her custom bridal fashion shop, while she’s away for the year seeking medical treatment.

When a young marrying couple mistakes the dressmaker organization for wedding planners, Nora sees an opportunity to rescue the shop. She realizes that some type of expansion is necessary during a slump in weddings and a looming tax bill that may close the shop. Why focus solely on the gown and tuxedo, when more revenue can be had for the complete wedding experience?

Ugo designs brochures with their new name, Happy Like Us. Cards are placed around town, guaranteeing the most romantic, picture perfect weddings. They use themselves as models of the perfect happy couple.

 

Guiding people to their wedding day, arranging the guests and festivities before and after like a pro can be a dangerous game, especially when you’re selling a service you know little about.

A more suitable moniker for this smart looking business would be:

 It’s Complicated, (No, Really, Really Complicated) Like Us!

First off, their wedding years ago, was actually a whirlwind jaunt to City Hall. There was no planning, no venue, no custom bridal gown. The flowers were a small bouquet purchased on the way.

Second, their happiness as a couple is an elaborate public relations rouse. Only those close to the pair know they are near the final stages of a bitter, drawn out divorce. Both are fed up with their marriage and constantly pester their weary lawyer to speed up the divorce process.

There is only the shell of a past relationship to mirror. If it weren’t for their shared concern for their dog, they would not have seen each other for years.
