i got married 19 May 2012

Hi everyone!


Sadly I discover this site too late...I got married 19 May 2012!!


My name is Dafne and I'm italian (sorry about my english...I try to be understandable)


My husband ( very good can say that ;D ) Diego and I met on 2002 and he propose on 2009 when finally we went to live together ( and I mean in the same city...yes distance relashionship for 8 years...) both move to Milan, I'm from Genoa, he's from a little town near Venice.


He propose to me in a very simple and romantic way.. in my bedroom with a little white box and love's words.


So the wedding planning began. I'm honest, I saw many many web site and thing from USA for inspirations, but also UK, Spanish and of course Italy. I don't know why I can't find this site before and I'm very sad about that.


First of all you must know that I'm a very movie fan (I'm graduate in Cinema :D ) since I was a child ( I have 3 names, the second one It's Leila, the italian translation for Princess Leia in Star Wars) Sign for life...


Anyway, we decide that the theme of the wedding would have been a mix between The Lord of the Rings, our passion, and medieval/fantasy stuff, with a touch of Star Wars. The colour we choose were blue, silver and white.


We began from the Wedding Card or invitations ( I don't know the rigth definition in english). They was with a hand made paper, print with a blue font and saeled with a silver seal wax with our surname and the Empire logo (SW)

The invitation are from the web site partecipazioni inkarta and the name of the model It's Postalina


The seal wax:

After tha we looking for the favors and I search on eBay! In Italy we have two kinds of favor: the favors for all (also who is not invited to the party, but only to the cerimony) and the favors for all the guest of the wedding party.


The first favors were the sugaret almond's pocket (pocket made like an arum lily) we buy from Bulgary on eBay and the second were some Honey Pot very cute I find from States ( also on eBay, the same in Italy was more expensive)


This is our color choose on left and the sample photos on right, under the Honey Pot


Hi everyone Sadly I photo 3386366-4


Do you know the Honey Pot?


Hi everyone Sadly I photo 3386366-5


After I hand made the ticket with our name and the date for the lily pockets


Hi everyone Sadly I photo 3386366-6Hi everyone Sadly I photo 3386366-7


It's a pergamen paper print with a Lord of the Rings font, folded and with a blue satin ribbon.


Next step was the Cake Topper...also buy on eBay from USA, I'm sure you know that one


Hi everyone Sadly I photo 3386366-8


We always think about our cake in white with a blue decoration.


Now I'ts more easy find an American's Style Wedding Cake in Italy, but, as you know, we italian are very demanding about food. The really really really beautiful Wedding Cakes call here "American Style" are made with very different ingredients. In Italy we have a kind of cakes call "chantilly". Our was made with chocolate sponge cake, chocolate chantilly cream inside and whipped cream outside. The blue decorations was a beautiful blue sugar roses. Here the photo:

Very gooooood taste, every guests really enjoy the cake and ask for more...we ate all the cake!!!


Rings moment!!


We falling in love of a Polello's bicolor model. The rings are made with red gold and white gold. Inside we inscribe our names in elvish ( I've the luck to know in 2005 Daniel Reeve, the Lord of the Rings Trilogy calligrapher and I ask to him to write on paper our names in elvish) and the date:

Welcome! Thank you for sharing your story and wedding with us! I really love the scrolls you made! A scroll menu! How clever! And even cooler that it was in LOTR elvish style writing with a cute FIMO rose! I want to pin that on Pinterest!
