The season has finally begun. No, we are not referring to the beginning of the thaw, the arrival of the swallows and the blossoming flowers, but to a great number of days to be spent among sugared almonds and champagne. Because spring, as we know, opens the door to the Wedding Season. And it doesn’t come alone. It comes with a shipment of anxiety of “satisfying” all the style codes required for this kind of occasion. Actually, there are few, basic rules that are based on two main principles: the star is the bride and the elegance goes hand in hand with the golden rule of “less is more“. To succeed in the choice of your look, the only weapon you have is the invitation, where you will find all the useful information on location, time and eventual dress code.
We deal with it for you by choosing four different outfit ideas, from morning to night, to turn you in “the most envied guest”.
In the morning
Say goodbye to long dresses, luminescence, brocades and total black. Green light to floral prints, pastel colours and below the knee lengths or just above.
Summer 2018 has been renamed the “rainbow season” because of a colourful trend: multicolour dresses with pastel or acid colours alternating like in a real rainbow. An example is the Malila dress by Mangano, perfect for a wedding day but also for a cocktail party, which plays with six wedges of georgette in different colours, inlaid to emphasising its importance. A sparkling dress, but with a sensual soul: the knee-length skirt, with à godet line, and the top, cropped on the front creating a halter neckline with a scarf to tie around the neck, will transform you into a contemporary Marilyn.
If it should be long, then opt for a pair of pants, or better, for a jumpsuit. We chose this model of Suolì for its optical pattern, which will surely allow you to stand out from the usual floral patterns. The boat neck and the small bows on the shoulder give a touch of elegant femininity. To wear with a belt that defines the waistline.

In the afternoon
“Half time”, halfway between day and evening, the wedding dress code for the afternoon introduces precious fabrics and new lengths. The dress can thus get longer down to touch the ankle.
The perfect dress for a jaunty summer wedding is this striped maxi dress by Jucca – recommended for willowy women. It experiments with pleats and small lurex details for a fresh and glamorous result. Worn with a pair of flat jewel sandals, it will be perfect to go wild and dance!
‘80s one-shoulder dress
Although red dresses should be used carefully to a wedding, it is impossible to resist this one-shoulder dress by Mangano, in georgette, with a vaguely ’80s mood. The skirt, with a new ankle length, is made of overlapping layers of georgette, creating a faux wrap, slightly asymmetrical, “squeezed” at the waist by a vibrant sash.

In the evening
Deep necklines and more defined silhouettes come into play.
The elegance of the length allows you to accentuate your shape without being vulgar. The length is a must have as well as the solid colours.
Being daring? In the evening, “Yes, you can!” But without exaggeration. You can be hyper sensual and very sophisticated at the same time wearing this Mangano long-sleeved tunic dress, in “frosted” laminated georgette. Long and wrap over, it is cinched at the waist by a sash. This maxi dress has a chaste neckline but a deep Diva slit that will leave everyone speechless.
