Mood Board: Olive green and Peach wedding inspiration

Posted on July 27th, 2015 by Silvia

Hello ladies!
It’s time for our monthly appointment with the moodboard wedding inspiration!
A few days ago I was looking back for the million time (I never get tired) to the beautiful pictures of Roger and Remko wedding in Apulia we featured last month. I completely fell in love with the beautiful apulian landscapes, the trulli, the secular olive trees, the colour of the ground.
What’s more rustic and vintage than a olive green and peach, almost terracotta colour palette?
Look at this stunning views of the magnificent Apulia region… A perfect location for a Italian countryside wedding cerimony and full of beautiful spots to take some amazing wedding pictures…

Look at this fabolous dress of BHLDN with its tiers of shimmering lace, definetely an alternative gown to get married in! On the right a vintage inspired fabric made of cotton and lace.

The shoes….I never get tired of shoes… I selected for you a high heel floral velvet Valentino pair and for those who wants a lower heel a vintage olive green pair of stunning shoes!


To complete the look here some options of jewerly. I love the green and peach earrings, a perfect choice for a sofisticated look. What about the cameo ring? Simply dreaming…


For the flowers the olive branches are so perfect and eye-catching. I really love the bouquet in the center, so rustic and elegant with different kinds of flowers and leaves. For the centerpieces and floral decoration  the use of vintage items like the antique scale on the left is a different and original way to create a beautifully personalized style for the reception.

Getting married in Apulia will give you a lot of choices for decoration items. The Apulia region has a lot of different handmade typical manifactures as those stunning ceramic plates handmade painted and terracotta vases. Another original apulian item is the Pumo, you can see through the plates, rapresents a flower bud blossoming and simbolize luck and fertility in the Apulian tradition. It come in different sizes and can be use for decoration or as a wedding favour for your guests.



Have you already fell in love with the apulian atmosphere? The next step is to get married in Apulia and live an original fairytale!

Hello Darlings!
A few weeks ago I completely felt in love with a couple who eloped to get married in Venice. When I saw the pictures by Weddingcity, in particular of their beautiful rings, I tought imediately about writing an inspirational post about it.
So today, for those who are waiting for a proposal or for who is just dreaming about it, I will share a selection of some stunning engagement rings I found around the web.
Searching for some beautiful items to give you some inspiration I got carry away and felt in love to some amazing vintage and art deco rings. I love coloured gemstones as opals, zepphire and emeralds. They are so dreaming and different from the classic diamond. Let’s be honest…I wouldn’t be disappointed if I got a diamond solitaire!!
So here’s the selection of some vintage-unconventional-art deco rings…I must say now I fell like a baby because I want one so bad!



A vintage treasure

Let’s start with a classic but always elegant and magnificent diamond solitaire. I selected a vintage Tiffany & Co. from 1940-50s. A cut transitional round diamond weighing 1.17 carats set in the simple six prong mounting that Tiffany introduced in the 19th century. Dreaming, isin’t it?
Check out all the beautiful antique jewelry in the online store of Erie Basin…I spent hours on their blog!!

A magic opal

An amazing oval-shaped opal for a captivating art deco ring from the 1930s by Brilliant Earth. I was captured right away by this gemstone, so bright and full of colours!

The circle of love

I particularly love round shape rings with a simple and thin mounting. On the left we have a ruby and diamond ring with a wedding band, on the right a Etsy handmade 14k gold ring combined with nineteen tiny raw diamonds.

Shapes and colours

Here’s some colourful non-traditional engagement ring I selected for you… I love all the different colours: the green of the emerald, the pink of the sapphire and the red of the ruby.
The last piece I felt in love with is an absolutely treausure art noveau ring from th 1900s with ruby and a spectacular mouting in the shapes of leaves.

Serena and Pierre-Oliver: a rustic wedding in Torcello

Posted on July 6th, 2015 by Silvia

Hi ladies!
Let’s start the week with an amazingly romantic wedding in our beloved Venice!
Serena and Pierre-Oliver got married in a sunny September in the intimate island of Torcello.
Their story starts one year earlier when at midnight of Christmas Eve Pierre-Oliver proposed to Serena in the magical Piazza San Marco. No wonder that they were absolutely sure about the location for their wedding: Venice <3
I love the style of the event, rustic but elegant with a perfect match of the colours white, salvia green with a touch of Bordeaux. Serena and Pierre-Oliver thought of every single detail from the favors – little soaps wrapped in a vintage packaging – to the names of the tables – inspired by celebrities the visited the Island of Torcello.

A vintage-retro style for the modern Groom

Posted on June 29th, 2015 by Silvia

Hello everyone!
We all love checking on different wedding styles for us, ladies…the dresses, shoes, hair & makeup and so on..
But what about our better half? I thought maybe they would be interested in wedding fashion too…
So this inspirational post is for all of you, future-husbands who are searching for a different style, a bit retro-vintage that will surprise all your guests, and your future wife!
Here some different choice of accessories for your wedding outfit: some original looks with different colours and texture, some choices of bow ties and some ties that will spice up a formal suit.

Be different!

If you’re tired of the old school style here’s some original choice for you! You don’t need to overwhelmed your outfit by adding a lot of details. You just need to create you own personal look that fits in your personality. I love the broach in the second picture, a really different idea from the usual tie.




The bow tie

Here some choices of bow tie. The first one with a floral fabric is just stunning and really elegant!
What about the bow tie made of wood? Beautiful..

A different kind of tie..

If you don’t want to renounce the tie, choose a fun one… A floral or a polka dot one are different but very chic.
To have a more retro style you can use a unique way to tie it up!

Mood board: Polka dot wedding inspiration

Posted on June 15th, 2015 by Silvia

Hi darlings!
Here we are with our monthly inspirational post…this month I decided to twist the topic and chose to get inspired by the Polka dot theme. What do you think?
The polka dot pattern has been always an elegant, fun and sophisticated fashion must since the 20s through the 50s till these days…In weddings these little points are for sure a 2015 trend, not only for dresses but also for the decorations, the food and the stationary!
To start I selected three pictures of three immortal icons of the last century:
The dreaming Brigitte Bardot spotted here in Spoleto on August 1961 – the talented Bette Davis in a stunning dress – the beautiful Audrey Hepburn, so stylish with a so contemporary polka dot bikini.



For the dress a long elegant gown with the detail of cotton polka dot as in the second one featured with an elegant lace. For a retro wedding inspired by the 50s I chose a short dress with a polka dot skirt, really beautiful.


For the shoes and the accessorize here are some pretty things. I tried to select some items with a sophisticated touch of different kind of dots in order to create a chic and stylish look!




I must say I had some trouble find the right options for the flowers but look at the yellow bouquet with acacia flowers… An alternative to little flowers, as also the baby breath, are the black eyed anemones that pops out of the bouquet and  refer perfectly to the polka dot theme. For him a stunning Boutonnière with lots of different coloured dots… Can you believe they are all dried flowers?





I particularly love all these three tablecloth, they are a simple but fancy element at your reception. What about the lights? A magical atmosphere…

Fashion tip: what to wear on your honeymoon

Posted on June 8th, 2015 by Silvia

Hi ladies!
We all love this period of the year and we are all focused on the last details of the plannings … The final rush is for sure the most stressful!
And what about after the wedding? The first trip as a married couple….wonderful!
Thinking of the sun and the sea, today I will share with you some ideas of what to wear on your honeymoon or just for your holiday…
When I first thought of this topic I immediately imagined our sponsor Grazia’lliani 2015 collection.


After midnight…

For the night a fresh and comfortable underwear but at the same time with a touch of sexiness can’t be missed in your suitcase as a newlywed. I love the use of the natural fabrics and the unique details as the polka dot lace and the low back.






At the beach…

Check out these stunning swimming suits…I absolutely love them!
The high waist and the detail of the orchid in the upper piece are so elegant..
Grazia’lliani beachwear has an unique and sophisticated retro style thanks to the peculiar shapes and fabrics. Their dresses are a perfect fit both for the day at the seaside or for an aperitivo in the evening.
