Do you imagine that your wedding day is an explosion of energy, colors and good vibes? Wow, does that sound amazing right about now. Anybody else need it? This Italian elopement inspiration is a LITERAL party. Fixings include: iridescent decor, glitter, cute outfits and festival vibes.
When Erica & Manu started thinking about this colorful inspiration, they had a party atmosphere and tons of tinsel in mind! We worked with wedding planner Lalla Crippa, getting together the perfect crew for this unconventional wedding. The venue is the beautiful Borgo della Rocca in Lombardy region, Italy. It dates back to the XII century, and genuinely takes you back in time. We re-imagined it for a young and stylish couple, adding a fun, colorful and modern vibe to it. So, its ancient brick walls meet with a tinsel tent + dry, painted palm leaves for extra fun!
We’ve got style for miles with these two. And whimsical wedding decor with nontraditional pastels and glittery hues. Get lost in the sparkle and festival vibes. But find yourself back in this creative elopement in Italy. Erica & Manu snapped all the party pics!
Boho Bride Ready to Elope in Italy
Because of the patina, ancient setting, the bride’s wavy, boho dress just demands attention. The contrasting textures and time periods add interest! Rara Avis Group designs this wedding gown.
Remember that explosion of color we were talking about?! To illustrate the desired vibrancy of this Italian elopement, La Fiorellaia styles this bouquet mainly in dry palm leaves, colorful gypsophilia and pampas! The only fresh touch is the beautiful and colorful anthurium.
Beach waves, gold, sparkly eyeshadow and a bold pink lip completes this festival bride look! Hair and makeup by Lina Pagano.
Italian Elopement Ceremony with Plenty of Tinsel
Certainly the tinsel adds whimsy and festival vibes to this ceremony. Dry, colored palm leaves + pampas sculpts on pink grates, which are definitely an unexpected juxtaposition.
