We’re still not over the awe-worthy wedding of Italian blogger Chiara Ferragni—best known as The Blonde Salad—to Italian rapper Federico Leonardo “Fedez” Lucia, and for good reason. This incredible celebration, held at a 19th-century palazzo in Sicily called Dimora Delle Balze, has definitely made the list of our favourite weddings of the year. With everything from Ferragni’s three custom Dior ensembles to custom stuffed plushies and an awesome amusement park reception, this couple takes personalizing a wedding to the next level. Here are all our favourite details from this over-the-top weekend.
The awesome pop-up wedding invitations
We got a glimpse of just how cool this wedding would be when Ferragni gave Instagram a sneak peek of their super-cool wedding invitations—pop up-cards with the words “The Ferragnez” (a combination of the bride and groom’s names) and a logo, which would later be seen throughout the entire celebration.
The couple’s life-size mascots
The bride and groom flew all of their guests to Sicily in private jets, complete with a personalized pink-carpet rollout designed with the “The Ferragnez” logo seen on their invitations, ensuring everyone would be excited for the festivities to come. Life-size mascot characters of both Ferragni and Fedez greeted the guests at the airport, and the couple also had Ferragni and Fedez plush dolls by Italian toymaker TRUDI at their reception—how adorable is that?!
The bride’s sophisticated, shimmering rehearsal dinner outfit
Ferragni wore a stunning pink and gold custom dress from Prada for the rehearsal dinner celebrations. This stunner shined on its own—no Kirakira needed. We especially loved the gold detailing around the neckline which added a luxe, glam feel to the dress.
Ha inventato un lavoro da zero. Un lavoro che anche se dovesse scomparire tra qualche anno poco le importerebbe. Una comune mortale non riuscirebbe in tutta la sua vita lavorativa a guadagnare quanto lei in questi anni. È felice. Ha appena sposato l’uomo che ama e hanno un figlio meraviglioso. Potrei continuare ma va bene già così. Ciao rosicone!! 👋 @chiaraferragni @theblondesalad 🌺 #theferragnez #theferragnezwedding @theferragnezofficial @fedez
Ferragni’s clever lace underlay for her wedding gown
The bride donned an amazing custom lace underlay for her Grace Kelly-inspired ensemble by Maria Grazia Chiuri of Dior. But this was no ordinary lace underlay—it was designed as a romper! The high neckline and long sleeves gave this romper a classic vibe.
Congratulations to @ChiaraFerragni and @Fedez! With the young couple having just said ‘I do’ in front of their family and friends in a touching ceremony in Noto, Sicily, we are proud to unveil the gorgeous haute couture wedding dress specially designed for this occasion by #MariaGraziaChiuri. As a businesswoman, mother, and empowering role model for today’s young women, her exquisite gown fuses Italian craft inspiration with French haute couture for a result that is both definitively contemporary and timeless, as captured here during her fittings in our Paris salons.

Her ethereal Dior ceremony outfit
Ferragni added a long tulle skirt to her lace romper to create a dreamy, ethereal bridal look perfect for her I dos. A cathedral-length veil added classic glamour to this beautiful ensemble.
Ferragni’s sweet, whimsical reception dress
For the reception, Ferragni slipped into another custom gown by Dior, but this one had extra-special personalization—it included lyrics from the song Fedez wrote for her when he proposed, as well as meaningful symbols from their relationship.
Ferragni’s third wedding outfit
Forget the second dress—we think Ferragni’s definitely setting a trend for more-is-more wedding dresses. Later on during the reception, the bride converted her long reception dress into a third outfit by changing into a short tulle skirt—the perfect comfortable outfit for partaking in the carnival festivities that took place throughout the rest of the night.

Vincenzo Da Scanio designed every detail of the couple’s lavish celebration, with lush florals lining the ceremony aisles and amazing white roses, hydrangeas and greenery creating the canopy under which the couple said their I dos.
The reception held in a cave of lights
Our jaws dropped when we first got a glimpse of this incredible light installation which looked like thousands of shimmering lights in the sky. Talk about dreamy!
The custom amusement park
After drinks and dancing, guests enjoyed a custom amusement park, which included a carousel and ferris wheel. We’re all about giving guests an activity at a wedding, and this is one idea we can definitely get behind.
The smokebombs and pyrotechnics
Ferragni and Fedez definitely had their celebrations go off with a bang. Colourful smokebombs in green and blue went off as soon as the couple had their first kiss at the end of their wedding ceremony. And the theatrics didn’t stop there—fireworks lit up the night sky as Ferragni and Fedez cut their cake.
Their amazing royal wedding inspired favours
In a cheeky nod to Prince William and Kate Middleton, the couple’s favours included mugs with their own faces PhotoShopped over the royal couple’s on their wedding day.
