Beautiful beaches, hotels,  people, weather – where can you find all of these amazing things? Rio de Janeiro! The city (and Brazil) has become one of the most desirable destination locales to eat, drink, and be merry! With its combination of rich history and flourishing modern culture, why wouldn’t it be the perfect place to have two individuals intertwine their old & new lives together?

For those who plan to jet set and say their “I do’s” in Brazil, the Hotel Fasano may be the ideal spot for you! Located right on top of the famous Ipanema Beach, the five star resort gives its customers a beautiful view of the city with top-class amenities. Since it’s existence in 2007  and created by famous French designer Phillipe Starck, it has received glowing reviews  and has solidified itself as an extremely desirable must-stay during a visit to Rio de Janeiro. Musix superstars Madonna and  Yoko Ono are just a few of the many high-end clientele who have graced the hotel’s presence.

For a wedding, the outdoor pool & rooftop area is fabulous for an intimate ceremony, where guests can indulge in the beautiful view of the infamous Ipanema beach and city skyline. Following the ceremony, guests can dine in the hotel’s five-star restaurants where they can party long into the night…

After our exquisite trip to the city & hotel, tanaRi events can confirm that Hotel Fasano was an extremely pleasurable experience. They hotel goes above and beyond to provide the city’s best treasures! We were also happy to connect with events manager & staff who were extremely accommodating and enthusiastic to discuss their destination wedding plans!

tanaRi events focuses much of its time on destination wedding planning and we welcome couples to discuss with us any plans for consideration! We can easily coordinate with the Hotel Fasano events team for any inquiries – you can reach us directly on our webpage!

While you consider an upcoming vacation/wedding/honeymoon, take the time to enjoy these hotel photos and imagine yourself whisked away as you sip on your Pina Colada and listening to the crashing of beach waves!

TRENDING: Wedding Gown Styles Summer 2012

As a young girl, you wish that you can look just like Cinderella in her ballgown. But when it comes to your actual wedding day (10 or 20 years later…) you want to get with the times! Summer is always a great time to experiment with something a bit more unique, especially for the bride who very much embraces the willingness to go against the grain and incorporate stylish trends!

We want to share with you our picks for summer 2012 must-haves in a bridal gown! With the understanding that every culture has different fundamental styles, here’s our list of the international cross-over essentials:

Lace – If there’s one thing you take from this article, it’s that this summer’s wedding dresses are showing TONS of lace applique – on the bodice, sleeves, back – you name it! A prime example this season was the wedding of Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg — his wife, Priscilla wore a very simple, yet beautiful Claire Pettibone gown with lace highlighted in the neckline, but extends throughout the entire gown! More lace gowns for your eye pleasure:

Color – There are so many to choose from, especially for the summer season! Tangerine and mint green are the hot colors of the season, but don’t be scared to drift into lilacs or reds either! If you’re too nervous to dive into colored gowns, then why not add a colorful touch to your shoes, belt or jewelry! Here are some high-fashion colored gowns to peruse:

 Asymmetrical shoulder  – This is an extremely flattering neckline for women and one of our favorites! There are many ways to wear the asymmetrical dress and all are nothing short of absolutely lovely. A way to jazz up this style could include bows, flowers, brooches, or intricate beading! How gorgeous is this Romona Keveza gown? Here are some other beautiful asymmetrical gowns to ooh and aah over –

Short  – Summer season is the best season for short wedding gowns – no muss, no fuss! Outdoor weddings are most popular during the summer, so it’s wonderful that brides are given the option to choose a shorter gown to avoid trips/falls and stains that are typical for a beach wedding, farm wedding or even in the mountains! Isn’t this Marchesa gown a stunner? For more short wedding gowns, check out this great selection!

 We hope you take these as a helpful guide as you venture in your wedding gown adventure! Good luck 🙂
