It’s Official: Xavi Really Got Married

13 Jul

tumblr_mpw3k3p0BU1rct3fqo1_500Well will you look at that? Xavi’s 2012 Summer of Love stuck! It’s just been a year (almost to the day) that we first set eyes on his lady (at the bottom of this post) and watched while their relationship progressed. Today Xavi and the lovely Núria Cunillera wed at the Marimurtra Botanical Gardens in Blanes, Spain.

Here’s (soon to no longer be a) bachelor Xavi arriving for his big day. Aw! He looks so happy.  It’s so rare that I see him smiling.
tumblr_mpw2ibks5Y1sr83mro1_500tumblr_mpvznkLYOw1rct3fqo1_1280And here’s Nuria arriving! What a lovely smile she has! There’s a better look at the front of the dress later on in the post.

tumblr_mpw2gy3xZQ1qjsiu0o1_500Many of Xavi’s Barca teammates were on hand to wish him well. Here is video of them arriving. Argh, the screams!

Okay, so we’re going to get this out of the way immediately. Daniella wore a dress that is pretty controversial. I personally don’t care for it and don’t really think it’s “wedding appropriate” but that’s just me. I’m going to a wedding next weekend (outdoors in the afternoon) and I assure you, I won’t be wearing anything like that. It’s (to my mind)  a mash up between a lacy pegnoir set, an ice dancer’s costume and a prancercise work out bottom. Put in blender and pulse. Add platform shoes and blend. I know it’s on trend right now, but I don’t really care. So yeah, not working for me. BUT let’s keep the comments about the clothing. I don’t want it to degenerate into some sort of weird Daniella bashing “Only a slut would dress like that! Cesc’s too good for her!” etc. blah. Let’s keep it about the dress. Much like we did when Patrycja Wojnarowska went out in that Ass Crack Special dress. Here’s the dress.

tumblr_mpw34yB7ZW1royazxo1_500As I said in the comments on another post, I’m not really feeling Carolina Martins’ dress either (Pedro’s wife) – I don’t really like the fringe. I think most of the ladies look great.

Not attending the wedding were Pique & Shakira, Carles Puyol & girlfriend Vaness Lorenzo or Iker & Sara. All were out of the country on vacation. Seems kinda weird to me to skip a good friend’s wedding, but who knows what commitments they have?

tumblr_mpw4zhpbwj1qg8thho1_500Here’s another shot of the happy couple. Nuria, you’re one lucky woman! You’re never going to have to nag your husband to mow or water the lawn, because girl, he will be on that shiz!  But I jest. Love is a beautiful thing. Mazel tov to the happy couple.

I’ll have more ‘baller antics later tonight, but now I’m off to see the New York Red Bulls play the Montreal Impact with watishista forzasusan.

    Oh my…what is that dress…I’m seriously speechless that someone would consider wearing that…to a wedding!! Anyway (let’s pretend that fashion disaster didn’t happen) Xavi looked happy and yay LOVE 🙂

    • la-la July 13, 2013 at 5:34 pm #

      Oh bless, I do love a happy Xavi. As a Dolly Parton fan (that’s a lady who knows how to work a fringe) I merely arched an eyebrow at that lady’s dress. But she gets extra points for using black fringing on a cerise dress. I think the thing with Daniella is, is she a bit wary that she’s older than most of the wags?* and, you know, maybe tries to push the boat out a bit as means of overcompensation? Or maybe she’s just naturally a female Guti/Sergio…

      *I’m somewhere in the region of Daniella’s age. I would look like a bag of shite next to Antonella & the rest of the Barca wags!

      • consuela July 13, 2013 at 7:36 pm #

        Great article … and good advice. Thankfully my trips for friends’ weddings are long gone!! Is Victor Valdes’ partner preggers again or has she not quite dropped the last baby weight?

        • Anonymous July 13, 2013 at 7:44 pm #

          She’s pregnant again. We just posted shots of her in a bathing suit the other day. She’s glowing!

    Daniella’s is definitely the worst of the bunch, but there are a few dresses I’m not crazy about – VV’s Yolanda’s dress looks kind of 80s beauty pageant and I’d have liked Patricia’s better if it were short all around. The ruffles with the train are overkill. I do love David’s polka dot bow tie though, because I can pretend he borrowed it from Sergio. Pepe’s Yolanda looks gorgeous, though!

    Well, congrats to the couple. Nuria, if the man loves you half so much as he loves the grass at the Camp Nou (and as long as you’re ok sharing him with that great true love of his) then I’m sure you’ll be very happy.

    A lot of ladies look very very good. Beautiful wedding dress as well. I cannot say a thing about Daniella as none of it is nice!

  4. Katie Ann July 13, 2013 at 5:48 pm #

    Aw, Xavi!!!! He’s so happy!!! Also, how beautiful is Nuria, right? I LOVE her dress, and her make-up, and that fantastic cathedral veil… I really like Antonella’s dress, too, because the color is amazing. Daniela’s would be better if it had an underskirt that hit, say, just above her knees; instead it looks like she’s wearing a bathing suit with a sparkly cover-up. Meh. One more thought: David Villa’s rocking that suit he’s got on. I approve.

  5. Mehreh July 13, 2013 at 5:52 pm #

    I enjoy seeing xavi smiling! He’s so serious so it’s nice to see him enjoying his wedding day. Mazel tov to the happy couple!

    I LOVE the color of antonella’s dress. Fabulous. Yvonne looks gorgeous. Daniella… Nope. Victor’s wife is channeling the same prom vibe that pilar was on last weekend. Anna Ortiz looks great. She makes awesome choices.

    Poor jordi. I said,”awwww forever alone” when I saw his entrance. Pobre cito.

    • Casey July 13, 2013 at 6:17 pm #

      I did the same with Buse

  6. Casey July 13, 2013 at 6:14 pm #

    I’m not a fan of Nuria’s dress.

    Xavi looks really happy though and so does his misses , I’m glad Xavi found someone …the little affection I have him ,is generally happy for him … I’m glad football and grass aren’t his main focus anymore and I wish them a long , happy and prosperous future …

    I’ve always been a fan of how Patricia dresses , and really loved this dress … Anto looked really pretty , love her dress and I’m glad she did something different with her hair for a change … Now a close friend of mine said Daniella’s dress would have looked better had she had a smaller waist , I for partially agree with her … But be that as it may , that is a wedding , she’s a grown ass women and its a really inappropriate dress . Nuff said .

    Now can Sergio , Ronaldo , Iker or anyone for that matter from Madrid get married . Gosh !

    • headbandsandheartbreak July 15, 2013 at 5:16 pm #

      Well, considering that she just had a baby just 3 months ago, I think her waist looks fine!

  7. kel July 13, 2013 at 6:25 pm #

    Daniella really doesn’t know how to dress for weddings. She overdid it at Iniesta’s wedding last year too. Just… innapropriate
    Villa and his wife look awesome though.

  8. Camilla July 13, 2013 at 6:34 pm #

    I don’t really like any of this dresses… The best one was Antonella’s, I’m not really familiar with the Barça wags; sooo. I also find a little strange missing a friend’s wedding…

    Well, Xavi and Nuria look really happy, that was nice! Wish them the best!!

  9. Maripili July 13, 2013 at 6:39 pm #

    Antonella looked lovely, so did Iniestas wife, Ana. Not crazy about the fringe either.Daniella…. Very inappropriate for a wedding.

  10. number1barcachick July 13, 2013 at 6:59 pm #

    honestly i am really understanding why people are putting what not to wear cards in wedding invites, i know you wanna be sexy and so on but also take into account you’r going into a Church?, no i have known people who have not been admitted into weddings because of their dress choice and pepe renia’s wife’s dress is gorgeous i love patricia’s own, antonella’s i likeish im not crazy about super high splits at wedding’s, i hope these ladies hear our plea’s cause its not a good look 😦

    • la-la July 13, 2013 at 7:11 pm #

      The thing I notice, and maybe its a Spanish cultural thing, is that the ladies all seem to wear evening (black tie) dresses to day weddings; in the UK, where you mainly get married at 12, maybe 1pm is that ladies wear cocktail dresses, only with hats/fascinators. Much less chance of a faux pas. Certainly less chance of thigh splits/sheer panels/fanny flashing (*heres looking at YOU Liz*). Also, don’t they have mums? Mine is a fail safe wedding outfit monitor.

      • number1barcachick July 13, 2013 at 7:22 pm #

        to me its a matter of respect you need to ask yourself would you be happy if someone turned up to your wedding dressed like that? and the answer would almost always be a resounding no

        • headbandsandheartbreak July 15, 2013 at 4:51 pm #

          I knew someone who showed up at a wedding of a friend (well, she and the bride were more like frenemies)in a floor length off white lace dress. My jaw hit the floor. You couldn’t tell who was the bride except one was wearing a veil. The bride was PISSED and I don’t blame her.

      • headbandsandheartbreak July 15, 2013 at 4:52 pm #

        Yeah, I’ve always found it fascinating how it’s always formal gowns too. Is that just at famous people weddings or always? I’d go broke if I had to get an evening gown sorted for every wedding. Something else to take up space with the bridesmaid gowns in the back of the closet!

  11. number1barcachick July 13, 2013 at 7:00 pm # thats a good reference 🙂

    • Katie Ann July 13, 2013 at 10:04 pm #

      I think the “don’t wear black” rule gets broken a lot nowadays; at least, I’ve seen a lot of little black dresses being worn at the weddings I’ve been to, especially during the winter. Some of my friends have even put their bridesmaids in black.

      • headbandsandheartbreak July 15, 2013 at 4:48 pm #

        I’ve seen that as well and heck, I wear black to weddings all the time because almost everything I own is black. I live in NY so A. it’s practically the law and B. it’s freaking filthy here!

        That said, I’m going to a wedding this weekend and I have fabulous dress in Madrid blue to wear.

  12. consuela July 13, 2013 at 7:24 pm #

    Was there a wedding? Or the Academy Awards? That dress is awful. She got her guy. Don’t need to let everyone else know what she has!! That said, it relieves me mightily that Xavi got married. I was wondering about that youngsta!

  13. hopechaser July 13, 2013 at 9:38 pm #

    Don’t forget mushroom foraging; Xavi’ll be all over that too! Congrats to them both. For a guy who stated women are demanding and distracting and he plays better without any in his life, Nuria must be some kind of awesome. Kind of glad no Iker; keeps attention on the bride and groom and not on ‘saint baby’. Didn’t know Nuria was a journalist; that also brings up possibilities for comparing and contrasting between the two couples which just don’t need to be realized.

    I’ve always thought Ana classy and here’s proof yet again. Patricia’s dress is great though agree the ruffles on the back were perhaps a bit much. The rest, meh. And a polka dot bow tie, David? Way to raise male hotness quotient. Now, we just need to hear his daughters picked it out and we’ll all be done for.

    • jellyace July 14, 2013 at 3:06 pm #

      I guess for their honeymoon, they shall go someplace where they can examine the latest technology in grass hybridization and hydration, and forage for mushrooms!

      As for Daniella, all I can say is that for someone who just gave birth a few months ago, she cuts a fine figure. That said, she doesn’t have to shout it so in-yo-face. I guess someone had to be the Cher at that affair.

      • headbandsandheartbreak July 14, 2013 at 5:28 pm #

        ::snort:: Spot on comment – “the Cher at that affair”

        • jellyace July 16, 2013 at 3:53 pm #

          There’s always one.

  14. Allison July 13, 2013 at 10:47 pm #

    Oh Xavi!!! Happy at last. I’m just so happy for him, I don’t care about anyone’s dress.

    But I will say that my man, David Villa, is ROCKIN’ that tux! Yum!

    • Logan July 14, 2013 at 1:16 am #

      I second that! Although I still harbor bad feelings for him slapping my Mesut, boy looks fine as hell!

  15. mygypsyspirit July 14, 2013 at 12:59 am #

    So… I’m not a fan of any of the dresses. They look more prom than wedding. Is this a wedding or a fashion event? Wait… Don’t answer that question. I forgot we’re dealing with people with a lot of disposable income.

    With that said, how radiant does Yolanda Cardona look?! Preggers and beautiful!!!

  16. Patricia July 14, 2013 at 8:35 am #

    Thanks for posting all of these. Congrats, Xavi and Nuria! At last the “grumpy old man of Barcelona” ties the knot, and to someone he’s known since he was young and was apparently seeing for a year and a half (I thought she was some summer hookup to get the press off his back). Whatever y’all think of the Grassmaster, he’s one smart cookie, and I’ll bet his lady is, too.

    My fave Barca fashion couples have always been Andres/Ana and David (now Atletico)/Patricia. One pair always looks like they’re out of an old silent movie. The other, an Almodovar film. And who knew Masche’s wife was so hot? I’ve only seen her scowling– he may be a pitbull on the pitch, but I imagine he comes home and gets chased around the house with a rolled up newspaper for not taking out the trash.

    But the sexy award has to go to the Reinas. Damn. Take note, Daniella.

    I´m so happy for Xavi. Nuria looks gorgeous and seems to be a sweetheart. I wish them all the best!
    Ana´s dress is by far my favourite. I love her style! I still can´t get her amazing wedding dress and that beautiful headpiece out of my head.

    Now I´m starting to imagine a Xavi baby (yes, I´m nuts). Just as Messi´s son is all chins Xavi´s probbably will be all eyes!
