I guess it depends what you folks like best. If you guys are the athletic outdoor types then a bit of hiking and skiing in the Alps seems like a dream trip to me. On the other hand, if you prefer the fine arts there's Florence, Venice and Rome.
Have a safe trip

Two of my coworkers just got married in Italy, came back a week ago. They also did Rome-Florence-Venice. It is still fine this time of year. I personally went to Italy/Switzerland in February, the weather was 50-60F (10-15C) in Italy and 40-45F in Switzerland, and it was a beauty, because of snow in Alps.
Just a thought, don't stay in Florence for too long, 2 days is usually plenty. Rome and Venice are a lot more interesting. Milano is very fashion-oriented, if you like very dressed-up NY-Manhattan type croud in a smaller city.
In Switzerland I'd recommend to stay in Geneva and take a couple of day trips, one to Lausanne/Monroe, and one to Interlaken(!!!). If you like skiing, definitely stay in Interlake area. Also, from Geneva it is a day trip to Chamonix, France, where Mont Blanc is. Definitely recommend this.
Here's a few pictures of mine

My wife and I got back from Switzerland just last month. It was a great vacation.
I loved Lucerne, Zurich, and Luzanne. And had a special trip to Bern and met Pauline. She is a great person and very cool.
If you are going to Italy, I haven't visited there but you could visit both, there is an Italian part of Switzerland, and is pretty warm there. Lucarno, I forgot the actual city name, is very nice and resorty.
But one the pretties cities I visited was Walenstadt, it is right near Lichtenstein, which was also nice to visit. Well, Walenstadt is right up against the mountains, and the Walensee Lake is also against the mountains one of the closest to it's mountains. It makes for a beautiful site.
It is very quiet and peaceful so you will be mostly watching the view drinking wine or the fine beers and enjoying each others company. You can also swim in the lake, take paddle boats, etc.
Have fun wherever you go.
Mark
