Irina’s dress

Irina is one of those brides that you can’t keep your eyes off. As stylish and sexy as can be. She tied the knot at the Snagov Club in Romania just a few months ago. It was a very special wedding with an extremely elegant bride. Don’t miss today’s post if you’re a fan of brides with sensual dresses.

 She wore the Yaneida dress from the 2014 collection and it fitted her like a glove. If you like sensual dresses that show off a good figure, then this might just be the one for you. Irina’s dress is made of satin and decorated with lace encrusted with pearls and crystals. An empire line with embroidered straps that add even more charm to a jewel of a dress. Don’t you just love it!

As she told us “I knew from the beginning that my wedding dress should stand out by being refined and simple. I usually follow the principle of “less is more” and I didn’t hesitate to put it into practice even on my wedding day.

In terms of the shape, I knew I didn’t want a princess dress, but one which would “follow the lines of my body”. As she said, “I knew that a dress that would fit my style and personality would be one that follows the lines of my body”.

When it came to accessories, I didn’t want to wear a veil because it wasn’t a church wedding. It was a lake shore ceremony, so I didn’t follow the tradition. I also wanted all eyes to be on the dress and train, and I didn’t want anything to hide it. However, she did wear a discreet headdress… a very elegant, flattering tiara.

What she liked best about the dress was the sumptuous fabric and gemstone embroidery, which was what made it really stand out. She did not want to wear pure white, so “this light gold dress was perfect”.

When it came to hair and make-up, she told us that because this was an open-air, summer wedding, she didn’t want heavy make-up or dark colours. We chose warm shades of gold, brown and coral. My hair was gathered at the back in a ponytail with volume and natural curls”. She was lucky enough to have one of Romania’s best-known make-up artists as her maid of honour, so she entrusted her with the task and the result was absolutely spectacular.

This is the perfect dress for a dance floor diva. As she confessed, “I wanted to dance all night, so it was very important to feel comfortable in my dress. And so it was. I danced until the break of dawn”.

We love how she sums up her experience with Pronovias. “Unforgettable”. Thank you Irina for telling us about your special day.

If you like this dress, make an appointment at a store to try it on. The same goes for all the other styles too!

A black dress for a wedding guest

By Nuria González, 100 vestidos, LoveHunter

Never wear black to a wedding. Really? We are going to put an end to this fallacy today and give all the wedding guests some ideas for wearing a black dress.

There has always been some controversy about the acceptability of wearing black to a wedding, because black is associated with funerals. However, nowadays we are seeing more and more elegant wedding guests wearing black in magazines and on TV shows. What’s more, a little black dress is a terrific solution to many a style dilemma.

How to choose a wedding veil

Rebeca, A Trendy lifestyle, LoveHunter

You’ve searched, you’ve tried them on and you’ve thought long and hard and at last you’ve found the dress of your dreams. The dress you will wear and dazzle in on one of the happiest days of your life. However, of all the accessories in your wedding ensemble, the most important is the veil. That’s why I’d like to give you a few tips to bear in mind when you choose yours so that you don’t make a mistake.

First of all, take a good look at your dress. If it’s romantic and traditional then you can pick a lace and embroidered veil or one with other details to enhance and complement the dress. If, on the other hand, you have chosen a more sophisticated, modern dress or one in a more elaborate fabric, we recommend a plain veil, so that all eyes are on the dress and the veil is just a subtle accessory.

Peonies, daisies, succulent, paniculata, gerberas, roses, hydrangeas, tulips, ranunculus, lavender, buttercups… There are a thousand and one types of flowers, which makes deciding on your perfect bridal bouquet a difficult task. Once you have selected your flowers you need to choose the shape of your arrangement. Do you want a cascade, an asymmetric design or something really modern? To help you make the right choice, today’s post is a rundown of different types of bridal bouquet and some tips on which look best with each style of dress so you can be confident that you look your absolute best on your wedding day.

In olden times, bridal bouquets were bunches of aromatic herbs which symbolised the couple’s new life together. They were magical items which were thought to have an influence on married life. Later, in 1840, when Queen Victoria married Prince Albert of Saxony, this type of arrangement was rejected in favour of fresh flowers. Each flower had a meaning and different blooms were used to send secret messages. Over the years, this symbolism has been forgotten and although the bridal bouquet is still an essential …
