This Is What a 3-Day Multi-Million Dollar Wedding in Capri Looks Like
Ever wonder what it's like to plan your dream wedding without the stress of adhering to a strict 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's still something gratifying about seeing luxurious nuptials that are well beyond our own pocket books.
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 monument that they renovated especially for the extravagant occasion, reports Hong Kong Tatler. In addition to building a bridge so that lucky guests could access the landmarks' rooftop from the grounds (with the Italian government's approval, no less), the couple covered the entire venue with cascading florals. And since the Italian island is known for its oversize lemons, the bride and groom took that theme and ran with it with a custom-built lemonade stand.
For the Big Day, Chang 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, each made with hand-drawn lemon print fabric customised 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 even took home personalised tiles (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. The day of the actual wedding, the couple's reception featured performances by local bands and a grand fireworks finale.
Chang and Li didn't pulled out all the stops on the wedding favors, to: Each guest received a personalized straw tote bag filled with vacation-ready goodies.
