The wedding of a blogger and influencer Chiara Ferragni and now the bride’s husband Italian rapper Federico Leonardo Fedez will probably be remembered as one of the most iconic and glamorous weddings of all the times. Along with all other things such as Ibiza bachelorette party, the astonishing location of the wedding, there is something in particular that everybody will always come back to – Chiara’s two couture wedding dresses.
The wedding ceremony took place at Sicily, where Chiara’s mother is from. The ceremony started from Friday night with a rehearsal dinner at Noto Bassi di Palazzo Nicolaci. Toasts and tears are part of Italian tradition. With all of these elements, the Ferragnez couple hosted the unforgettable party for their friends and family.
On Saturday night the wedding started with an outdoor ceremony at the Dimora Delle Balze, a secluded palazzo in Noto. Everything was exploding in lots of greenery, roses, and hydrangeas. Chiara was escorted down the aisle by her father.
It was clear that the bride had a love at first sight with her wedding dress. Last season she approached Dior designer Maria Grazia Chiuri and asked her if she would like to do her wedding dress. “At the beginning, I didn’t want a traditional wedding dress,” Chiara admits. “I felt I wanted more of an evening dress, specifically one that I loved from Maria Grazia Chiuri’s first collection for Dior. [But] after, I met with Maria Grazia Chiuri, who thought we could realize a modern yet classical wedding dress without losing my contemporary identity, and fusing the fact that I am a young Italian woman.”
The Bride’s Custom-Made Romper
Grazia Chiuri came up with the idea of the custom-made romper, instead of the traditional bridal gown which Chiara absolutely supported. Chiara worn high-necked long-sleeved dress, classic and very sophisticated. It had a crochet lace romper as a base and wraparound tulle skirt on top. The gown required 600 hours of work by the team of four women. The skirt alone required 32 pieces of tulle.
But it is not the end. After the service where both bride and groom have read the vows they have written, the upcoming bride changed into her reception bridal gown. This time, Maria Grazia Chiuri opted for something more personal – the dress reminded us on the first collection she did for Dior for spring/summer 2017. It has a lot of embroidery on it – some of them were phrases that Fedez wrote about Chiara the night when he proposed her at the Arena di Verona.
“Maria had the idea to write part of the song that my fiancé wrote for me and sang to me at the Arena di Verona where he asked me to marry him,” said the blogger. “There is also my little lion, my little son. There is also the idea of flying, my fiancé used to be scared of flying, but he used to do it to come to where I was working. It couldn’t be more customized.”
Chiara had one more dress changing – after dinner and dancing, she switched her long gown for short, party one, making it the third Dior dress for the day.
