My husband and I are (hopefully) flying into Milan next week for a month-long stay in northern Italy. We will be meeting many Simionis we have gotten to know on Facebook, although none are related.
One family has even invited us to a wedding! So, now, besides "come hungry", I want to bounce off some questions.
The wedding will be at a church in the morning. Then there is a very nice luncheon at a villa http://www.villa-garbinati.com/mappa.htm
We are not invited to the formal luncheon as it is small(er) and was full when the bride asked us to join them. But we are invited to come back in the evening for music (DJ) and "refreshments".
What to wear! What to give!
Those are my main questions.
We are packing VERY light -- and I plan to wear a skirt with a nice top & jacket. And some sandals. But not dressy. I am pretty sure this will be alright.
Regarding what to give, a couple of people have mentioned 100Euro per person is a typical gift. But, others have said we could just give 100E for the both of us as we are not going to the formal event.
We are bringing a couple of small items from the USA, which leads me to another question (and another post?) about what gifts should we bring to people's homes.
Grazie for your help.
(possible future expat!)
