You get out of bed early, take a look through the window and see the sun starting to peek over the horizon. The rain has decided to stay away on this special day and you feel happy. Today is the day of an extremely important wedding for your family. The bride and groom are getting ready so that they look their best at the altar, and the maid of honour needs to look just as amazing. Time flies by and a hairstyling and make up session awaits to ensure you look wonderful. After the hands of the experts have done their magic you feel special, elegant and very beautiful. Bride and groom aside, one of the star attractions during the day is your dress, the matron of honour’s outfit, so be sure to make the perfect choice.
The matron of honour’s dress should feel comfortable and look simple yet spectacular. After all, there is no point choosing a fabulous dress if it doesn’t suit your style or if it makes you look as though you are wearing a fancy dress costume. Sometimes people are so keen to look ‘dressed up’ that they choose the biggest headdress, the most stylish dress, the most eye-catching handbag. The finished effect is just over the top. Remember that less is more and that what is most important is to look natural
The Pronovias 2015 Cocktail Dress Collection offers some stunning designs that will make you look and feel divine on a day you will remember forever.
It is important to remember that the matron of honour should never overshadow the bride. She should look lovely, choosing subtle colours and always avoid black and white. For a daytime wedding, there are shades of blue, green and purple, or greys and pastel tones, while at night, brighter, bolder choices are acceptable, but always with discretion.
Protocol dictates that the matron of honour should wear a long dress, although not everybody looks good in long dresses. If this applies to you, you’ll look amazing and chic in a below-the-knee dress, particularly for a morning wedding.
Whether you are accompanying the bride or the groom, you should find out what kind of style the bride has chosen, because ideally you should wear something that suits her style. In other words, if the bride is wearing a very wide skirt, you should not try to compete with her. Quite the contrary. The ideal look for the maid of honour in this case would be a light, soft, discreet dress.
As we have already said, it is essential that you look and feel like yourself. A discreet, natural hairstyle and make up look are your best options for looking impeccable.
If you still haven’t decided on a specific dress, here is a small selection of short dresses, dresses with short sleeves, three-quarter-length sleeves, long sleeves and even dresses with little capes. To see more designs in the Pronovias 2015 Cocktail Collection.
