Congrats on your wedding and hope you have a lovely trip in Europe. Me and my wife are also travelling in 2 weeks time (mid April) for 15 days to Europe and yes, just as Arno suggested you should plan the same way (if not already booked). We will be travelling from India to Paris (6 days), Paris to Geneva (via the TGV Lyria to the border station of Geneva or Basel). You can book your tickets here : www.tgv-lyria.com/en. And again from Lucern to Milan & Rome (http://www.trenitalia.com/tcom-en). That ways its easier and faster.
For 5 days in Switzerland you can either :
a) Book the 4-day Swiss Travel Pass and book point-to-point tickets for the 5th day OR
b) Book the 8-day Swiss Travel Pass.
During the peak seasons, point-to-point tickets can be quite expensive depending on how far and where you travel but then its upto you to figure out if you will be spending similar amount in point-to-point ticket as for a 8-day pass instead of 4-day.
The Swiss Travel Pass will give you free travel in majority of the trains, buses, boats and free entry to museums (www.swissrailways.com/ en/node/66). Details on how to use the pass can be found here (www.myswissalps.com/ swisstravelpass/howtou se).
Titlis : You can read all details at www.titlis.ch/en OR at www.myswissalps.com/ titlis
Jungfrau : You can read all details at www.jungfrau.ch/ en/tourism OR at www.myswissalps.com/ jungfraujoch
The Swiss Travel Pass will also provide you 50% discounted tickets for the mountain trains in Titlis (cable cars, Rotair and Chairlift) and 25% discounts for the mountain trains in Jungfrau (Lauterbrunnen to Jungfrau or Grindelwald to Jungfrau section)
If possible split up your 10 days more or less equally between the 3 countries since Paris has a lot to see and not just the Eiffel Tower. At least you could see the Disneyland or the Louvre Museum too (Monalisa painting) if not anything else.
