COLOURED IS THE NEW WHITE: WEDDING SHOES TREND 2018

White, synonymous of candour and purity, is the traditional and classic bride’s ideal colour. However the total white next year won’t be a trend anymore, especially for what concerns bridal shoes. For a modern and original look, coloured, alternative and peculiar footwear is preferred, that the brides can reuse in other events or special occasions.

For the women with a delicate taste and a vintage/boho style, we suggest pastel nuances, in particular pale pink (a colour proposed also for the new wedding dresses), embellished with jewels, bright rhinestone or lace; which alternate with the romantic gold or silver shades, for a fascinating timeless look.

The model of White collection by #VeraWang is wonderful: a twisted satin peep-toes, decorated with a chiffon flower, available in blush or ivory.

The Bridget 85 by #JimmyChoo are also gorgeous but more traditional: platinum ice dusty glitter round toe pumps, which magnificently work just as well with jeans as they do with sharp tailoring.

The rock and alternative brides may prefer footwear with vibrant, intense tones, in order to create an eccentric look and to make it entangling and captivating. For the women with a “dark soul” the black shoe is probably the best choice, even because black is getting a discrete success for the wedding dresses too.

The “comfortable solution” is the most appreciated, in fact the brides will avoid exaggerated heels, leaving space for more moderate, but refined and elegant, heights. Sandals, decolleté and lace up, so fashion recently.

The brides allergic to any kind of heel who can’t renounce to originality, may opt for personalized sneakers or converse with white tulle or satin bow, beads, tags; as an alternative to the classical ballerina flat, that remain a certainty anyway, most of all in case of “uncomfortable” locations.

Moreover, they’re both flat shoes, so they’re ideal for a look change, when the bride wants to go wild with her guests or simply to return feet on the ground after a very long and tiring day…but always with style!

No matter what your choice is, it is it would be better to match the coloured shoe model with the tones chosen for the wedding, in order to create an harmony with all the elements that will surely make perfect your big special day!

A wedding with an oriental twist

In Japan, bride and groom wear the traditional wedding kimonos together with the oironaoshi, a tradition that dates back to the 14th century. They change cloths four times, to symbolize the bride’s propensity to embrace everyday routine. At the beginning of the ceremony, she wears the shiro-muku under her kimono: it is a white item of clothing that symbolizes innocence, than colours will change up to arrive to red, a colour that, according to Japanese tradition, drives away evil spirits and represents happiness in conjugal life.

Laura and Vittorio, my Italian wedding couple with a strong passion for oriental culture, wanted to follow the oironaoshi tradition, so I proposed a wedding day with colour changes both for set design and for stationery, starting with a total white religious ceremony and ending with total red for the cake cutting.

Shining black and red insets for the wedding announcement, with Japanese ideograms and a shining black sushi stick to close the invitation. The other stick closes the present box that are handed to guests at the end of the reception.

The church – Basilica di San Lorenzo in Milan, Italy – floral decoration and the bride’s bouquet are completely white with callas according to the vegetation style created by the floral designer Rudy Casati. The contrast between the whiteness of callas and the late Romanic style of the church is absolutely touching!

The guests have reached the location by a bus arranged by the wedding couple and have been welcomed at the Castello di Macconago with the sweet sound of a melody played by a string instruments trio: harp, violin and cello.

Orange is the second colour: an orange ribbon gently wraps the table black napkins. Lantern menus feature the names of the Japanese cities that the wedded couple will visit on their honeymoon.

The oriental buffet with Japanese, Indian and Thai influences leaves everybody breathless, due to the impeccable preparation and service by Catering Grasch.

After the main courses, here comes a very elegant geisha wearing a red kimono. On a dark tatami with red and orange cushions, she starts the rituals related to the tea ceremony.

Matcha tea inspired my vision: for this special wedding, I have asked the sugared almond artisan to create a treat with this peculiar tealeaf.

Total red for the dessert and sugared almonds buffet, which is red from the table runner to the floral compositions. The candy station has been spread all over the castle, using the tea tables that could be found in every castle room, so as to allow the guests relax while tasting delicious milk puddings and custards and excellent quality sugared almonds.

Finally, the great cake designer Emilia La Volpe has prepared the surprising 2 metres tall wedding cake I designed for this wedding: red velvet with lemon custard filled with whole raspberries. Peach tree flowers made of sugar gently link the various cake levels, laid on a lantern.

A well-realized project is the sum of every single element designed and created with care and attention. I adore designing and creating events that communicate joy and emotion. This is my mission. This is graceevent world.
