f@#$ the bride, it’s all about ME – the italian wedding

i attended my first italian wedding a couple of years ago. what a TO DO! seriously. its all very traditional and formal, the church ceremony lasts for at least an hour and a half (not sure, i think i lost consciousness from about halfway through the 32nd sermon) but for some reason, no one is afraid to wear black. at the one i went to, the mother of the groom wore black! ok, so maybe it was a deep grey, but nonetheless. but they sure did know how to party! my favorite was the late night espresso bar (you haven’t lived until you’ve tried cappuccino with sambuca)! so make sure to bring your dancing shoes! here’s a look using two adorable little black dresses that go from prim and proper day dress to chic and sexy cocktail. black and white and yellow are way too chic!

  • I’ll attend my ex boyfriends wedding in two weeks. Well I guess unfortunately it’s not going to be italian. Anyway it’s my first wedding ;-) so I’m quite excited if the stuff I decided to wear will be approriate…

    I have that dress from antropologie.. It’s great.

    I’m hemming mine so that the slip will show.

    An espresso bar? Wedding’s sometimes bore me but that is a genius idea.

    Hi! I’m Italian so I know what you talk about :-)
    an Italian wedding, a TO DO? Really? The traditional ones are so exhausting, the ones in church at least (mine won’t be religious, thank… God, haha), there’s too much of everything and too many people.
    If black is fine at weddings is still discussed, many think it’s the elegant colour par excellence, I don’t agree, I usually avoid black and white as well. It should be a cheerful occasion for colours!

  • Wow! This could be one particular of the most helpful blogs We’ve ever arrive across on this subject. Basically Excellent. I’m also a specialist in this topic so I can understand your effort.
