From sweet veils to romantic gowns, and vintage decors: brides have fallen for lace!
Every Winter and Spring, metres of beautiful lace make an appearance on the catwalks of the world.
It has been popular for over a hundred years, but never that glamorous. It is definitely trendy to say I DO with some lace on!
Romantic, sexy, classic, sophisticated, vintage or baby. Chantilly, macramé, rebrodé, in white and ivory with a pastel touch. Ornate and delicate: designers definitely know that lace is the perfect feminine touch.

Also very versatile, whilst lace is romantic in style, it can easily surprise you and turn into a something new.
Carefully mixed to make sure its not too much but also not to minimal. Choose soft colours, more towards pastels or vintage palette, like greens for more nostalgic themes or pinks and greys to evoke a vintage theme.

LACE IS ALSO the perfect choice for a vintage wedding DÉCOR: our brides know that we love it!
We love these lace table runner for your reception.
With Flowers you should go for very soft colours selection of wild flowers to reflect your theme. Consider using baby’s breath, orange blossoms, hydrangea, for example, and why not some fruit for an extra touch.

Wheter in watercolours, whites or ivory the style it gives is definitely amazing. Maxi, light, soft and sexy, voluminous and… perfect with a bustier.
It will seem like it has just been borrowed from a ballet or an opera. Romantic, light, soft, rich, and never boring!

You can choose to be more romantic and rich, or sophisticated and minimal like the ones designed by Marchesa and Monique Lhuillier

Whatever you choose, go with your personality and add some details to give it more character; the result will be unique.

The first movie I saw with a wedding in its plot it’s a movie from 1987: “The Princess bride” by Rob Reiner.
A classic fairy tale, with swordplay, giants, an evil prince, a beautiful princess, a handsome guy and some kissing (as read by a kindly grandfather).
It will always be one of my favorite fantasy movie.
How not to talk about Julia Roberts starring in “Runaway bride” and “My best friend’ wedding”?
I think every girl saw these movies…
One of the most funny I have ever seen is “My big fat greek wedding”.
But it’s not all about just having fun…
This movie is about heritage and cultural identity, it’s the story of a Greek woman who falls in love with a non-Greek and struggles to get her family to accept him.

The posts for the following weeks will be dedicated to the beautiful, romantic, eternal city of Venice.
I used to live there during my studies and in those years I’ve seen people from all over the world come to get married in this city . I am sure they will never forget that day not just because of the event but also because of the atmosphere, the light, the lagoon and the amazing glimpses Venice has to offer.
So, if you are thinking about where to get married in Italy, Venice is one of the places you must keep in your mind. Following our posts you will discover more about the beautiful locations available in one of the best italian cities.
