It is a clash of beautiful dress designs in today’s post: in the modern corner we have the stunning Lagatte, and in the classic corner we have the elegant Leiva. So, what is a bride to do when it comes to pulling together the look for either of these gorgeous Pronovias gowns?
Well, that is where I come in with two wedding style boards for you. First up for the future forward bridal minxes it’s all about the visionary Lagatte.
Lagatte is a short wedding dress in Chantilly lace with a luxurious gemstone embroidered bateau neckline, sheer sweetheart neckline and organza flower appliqué at the hem.
My picks to go with this flirty and fabulous dress are shoes from luxury footwear King of the moment Nicholas Kirkwood; these are a classic with a modern twist. Swarovski crystal meets PVC and Satin for these fab slingbacks.
The stunning bracelet comes from the design mind of Eddie Borgo whose style is a heady design mix of Rock and Roll sensibilities and New York City grit! And you can be oh so fly on your wedding day with these unique Insect Earrings by Rachel Boston.
I can’t forget the power of flowers – I adore this flame bouquet by the incredible Flowers by Bornay. The Pièce de résistance for this look is a slash of Rouge Volupté lipstick from Saint Laurent.
Now, we come to the classically elegant Leiva, this is a magical Tulle petit pois wedding dress with rebrodé lace and intricate silver gemstone embroidery. Add in a strapless bodice with sheer tulle at the neckline. With a stitched satin belt with a bow and straight skirt with appliqués and scalloped hem – this dress says in dulcet tones ‘I’m very glamorous’.
There is a touch of old Hollywood glamour to this, in fact if I was wedding planning for Ava Gardner, I’d tell her that she should get hitched to Mr. Sinatra in this one. To borrow badly from a song – ‘Gold always believe in your sole!’ – The soles that we a drooling over are these deliciously decadent numbers from Givenchy, say hello to the Metallic python sandals.
The earrings are pretty and purse friendly pieces from Adia Kubur, throw in a gorgeous cuff by Juan Carlos Obando – and we’ve got an understated, yet elegant way to add to your wedding look on the bling side of things.
The Bouquet candy is this tear drop beauty by DC Bouquets which is utter opulence! So, how to we finish a classic look staying true to that old school glamour vibe – I am going to end things on a very simple note – chignon it up and the sartorial cherry on top is the Ainhoa vintage flower comb from Olivia Headpieces.
So, which one wins the battle? Modern or classic for you?
