Ever wonder what it's like to plan your dream wedding without the stressВ of adhering to a strictВ budget-or any other rules, for that matter? While many of us can only fantasize of walking down the aisle like the rich and famous, there'sВ still something gratifyingВ about seeingВ luxurious nuptialsВ thatВ are wellВ beyond our own budget.
On that note, allow yourself to live vicariously through Feiping Chang, a Hong Kong-based fashion and lifestyle blogger who recently tied the knot with banker Lincoln Li in a lavish three-day wedding that's estimated to have cost millions of dollars.
The couple got married in Capri, Italy, at Villa Lysis, a historic monumentВ that they renovated for the extravagantВ occasion, reports Hong Kong Tatler. In addition to building a bridge so that lucky guests could access the rooftop from the grounds (with the Italian government's approval, no less), the coupleВ covered the entire venue with cascading florals. And since the Italian island is known for its oversized lemons, the bride and groom took that theme and ran with it, building a custom lemonade stand.В
For the Big Day, ChangВ wore a couture gown by Giambattista Valli, which she told Tatler "exceeded my wildest expectations" and was the biggest dress that the European fashion house has ever made. Her summer wedding wardrobe also included a ruffled gown for the welcome dinner and an ethereal chiffon dress for the reception, eachВ made withВ hand-drawn lemon print fabric customizedВ with the bride and groom's names "entwined in lemon flowers."
As far as the itinerary, the three-day celebration kicked off with a decadent dinner at Da Paulino, a famed restaurant in Capri that's shaded by lemon trees, where guests took home personalized tilesВ (a popular souvenir from the isle). On day two, the couple and all of their guests headed to La Conca del Sogno, the bride's favorite beach club in Nerano. And on the day of the actual wedding, guests were treated to performances by local bands and a grand fireworks finale at the reception.
