Modern vs Classic: Bride Style Wars?

By Amma Adjubi-Archibald, Lovehunter.

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.

MODERN BRIDE

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.

CLASSIC BRIDE

LEIVA

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? ;)

How to choose a wedding guest dress

By Nuria González, Lovehunter.

You open your mailbox. Among all invoices, advertising and many other letters… There it is: a beautiful envelope, different, with a small bow. Oh! A wedding! And the first question that pops into your head… What should I wear?

Hello! My name is Nuria González, I am a professional Image Consultant and fashion blogger. Through this great Pronovias‘ space, Atelier Backstage, I will share with you tips, looks, moments, and everything related to weddings: their outfits, their guest tips… Nice to greet you!

So, how to choose a wedding guest dress? That special wedding, where you need a special cocktail dress, and since you open the envelope with the invitation you didn’t stop to think about what to wear. For me this is pure fun, and that’s what I want to convey with this text and images, as well as some useful tips learned not only with my profession, also for all the times I’ve had to find my perfect dress.

The very first thing is to decide who will accompany you to this appointment. Beware: it is not advisable to go with your battalion of friends, or with your mother, your grandmother, your mother and the neighbor, no, too many opinions. The store asistant will help you, and will be more objective. Go with just one person, with two at the most, and mostly think of yourself, your taste, your style, and feel good.

Go to your appointment with some hairstyle and make-up, no need to go with the same hairstyle you’re planning to wear the party’s day, but you have to look good, feel pretty. This is very important, because if you’re not comfortable you won’t like anything. Try on many dresses, and enjoy the moment! The colors and textures of the fabrics should look good on you above all. Do you like most the orange color or pink? Blue or green? Carefully consider the necklines, back cuts, lengths, glitter, and all these little details that make each dress differently.

Therefore, the steps I would suggest are:

  1. Check the cocktail dresses on the website first, to have an idea.
  2. Book an appointment for a day that you are not in a hurry.
  3. Attend accompanied by just one or two close friend/family member.
  4. Go with hairstyle and make-up, so nothing comes between your dress and you.
  5. Be advised by the store advisors, no one knows the collection as well as them.
  6. Try on all the models you want. Remember: you have the time.
  7. Consider the colors, textures and cuts that favors you.

And presto! Most important: don’t feel disguised, just be yourself. ;)

Have a nice day!
