Eternal Romance Fills This Rustic Rome Wedding

Rome, in a city where Valentine’s originated, we have here today this gorgeous rustic wedding of Cherry and Gianluigi. Overlooking Lake Bracciano on a hilltop, Casale di Polline was a perfect venue for this outdoor wedding with perfectly pruned trees, romantic fairy lights, rustic floristry, a mix of burgundy and old rose inspired tablescape, and so much more. There were so many little details in planning this wedding, as seen in the personalized lace robes and handwritten gifts for the bridal party, and the very cute Hong Kong coin-inspired cuff links for the groom himself. And of course, we were in awe of the beautiful bride in her custom-made Eliran Araha gowns, both equally ethereal and dreamy, yet lightweight and functional to mingle with the guests. You need to see this set photographed by Hilary Chan for yourself, because words can’t describe how perfect this wedding is!

What You Need to Know if You’re Planning to Rent Your Wedding Gown

Don’t we all wish that our fairy godmother could just wave her wand and magically make that perfect gown we have been dreaming of all our lives appear? We all wish it were that simple. Unfortunately, reality begs to differ and there is a lot of homework that needs to be done before finding ‘the one’. Aside from that, wedding gowns can easily start from an average price of five figures in Hong Kong dollars! Did you ever consider renting a gown instead? Renting that dream gown could actually be friendlier on the pocket. Every item in the wedding budget can easily add up, so it may make sense to spend less of an extravagant amount on something you will only wear once. And if you’re looking at cutting some wedding costs, this is a good step to keep you within that budget. If you are considering this option, here are the essential tips you need to know!

Do Your Homework, and Start Early

Remember the phrase ‘the early bird catches the worm’? Keep this in mind and you will be all set. Once you have finalized your wedding date and venue, you can start going gown shopping straight away. Popular gowns may be reserved by others especially on auspicious wedding dates. Starting early will help to ensure that you have a wider selection of gowns.

Explore More Than One Boutique

Boutiques may offer attractive packages with freebies and discounts. A word of caution is not to be too quick to sign on that dotted line. Make sure that you visit various boutiques as they may offer different gowns or packages. Try the gowns at different boutiques and pay attention to how staff assist you with your needs. Once you have shortlisted gowns that you like, then it’s time to start picking your final choice.
