Metal Music Lovers’ Italian Wedding with a Black Wedding Dress & A First Dance to Rammstein

When you picture an Italian wedding, you might be forgiven for thinking it would be super traditional and definitely in a church, but when the couple in question met at one of Italy’s biggest metal music festivals, their wedding was definitely going to go down a little differently. Erica and Antonio chose to tie the knot at Cà del Facco, a farm meets holiday home in the Lombardy countryside where they brought their relaxed, romantic wedding (that still felt totally ‘them’) to life.

Like it or not, ’tis officially the season, which I’m sure even the Scrooge-ist among you can get on board with after the year we’ve all had! We thought we’d take this opportunity (all in the name of research and work of course) to put together the ULTIMATE gift guide for rock n roll brides… If you love our website and our magazine then you’re sure to find some gifts to add to your own Christmas list, or ya know, to give to someone else that you love who has similar (excellent) taste to you.

We’re all for self-gifting as a form of self-love, so if you’re a 2020 bride who’s had to postpone and needs a little pick me up, or you’re a fiancé here desperately searching for ideas to buy your bride-to-be, look no further.

For Rock n Roll Brides

Ok, shameless self-promotion alert, but we’d be crap at our jobs if we didn’t direct you to the plethora of Rock n Roll Bride goodies up for grabs for any bride-to-be! A magazine subscription would be the gift that keeps on giving until she ties the knot, or if you’re at the beginning of your wedding planning journey, Rock n Roll Bride: The Ultimate Guide for Alternative Brides by our editor Kat Williams would be a great place to start AND she’ll even sign it for them!

If you’re buying for a 2020 bride, hopefully she’s in the place to smile about all the postponing by now (damn you COVID!) so a t-shirt or tote to commemorate the year that should have been is bound to get a few laughs (side note, should we update this design with something more hopeful for 2021 couples? Let us know!)
