Wedding Attire

How to dress up for a wedding in such a gorgeous Italian city? Most of brides prefer ethereal gowns in ivory, white and dove grey or blue, with layered skirts, embellishments and intricate lace or lace appliques. If you want to stand out and rock a sexy outfit, pay attention to off the shoulder and mermaid dresses, with embellishments and a train, which can be beautifully shown off during a gondola trip. If it’s winter, it may be rather chilly in Venice, so a high neckline will be a great idea not to catch a cold, and a comfy cover up with faux fur is a must for a winter bride. You can also try a chic bridal separate with a warm of angora or cashmere and a beautiful skirt. The groom can go for a classic tux look or stand out in a blue suit with a burgundy tie and boots. If it’s carnival time, masks are a must!
