Every time the same drama is on stage: after being first excited when receiving an invitation for a wedding, in a few seconds my whole self falls into panic and despair: OMG, what am I going to put on that day…expecially if it’s an Italian wedding?!
After all, a wedding party is not at all like going out eating for the first time at your future parents-in-law’s or getting perfectly dressed for an all-night-long crazy Saturday with friends. A wedding is completely another thing!
Some weeks ago I went to Malaga for a long weekend and in a small nice village called Nerja I saw a Spanish wedding. Well, that was really inspiring so I thought to write something to compare the differences between a Spanish and an Italian wedding.
It was in the late afternoon and most of the female guests were wearing long-dresses, very colourful and really with a strong personality!
In Italy this kind of look would not completely work. Guests rarely wear long dresses for weddings, and they aren’t usually so colourful. Plus the hair bands with flowers are not popular in Italy as well, so I would not go for anything like that if I don’t want to see the other Italian guests looking at me in an odd way!
Anyway there was some useful material to build up a nice original look for a future invitation to an Italian wedding…shoes for example: some of them were adorable!
By the way, I have already received invitations to two Italian weddings so far, so … keep tuned! More to come about Italian Fashion style!
