The best hairdo according to your bridal gown

By Rebeca from A Trendy Life, LoveHunter 

Your style on D Day must be a harmonious look including your dress, accessories, make-up and hair, which should all reflect your style and personality. And above all, you should feel comfortable.

You may wear the most incredible dress you can imagine but if the rest of the accessories don’t match up, the effect may vary.

It’s not the same to wear a dress with thin straps with your hair up or down…

Here you have some suggestions on what looks best with each type of dress, but don’t ever forget that what’s most important is being true to yourself…

If the dress of your dreams has a V-neck , you should know it’s the best for curvy figures since it slims and lengthens the waist, creating an optic effect thinning the silhouette, while creating a very sensual effect.

Bianca’s dress

Bianca is a Pronovias girl in every single sense. She has worked for the firm for over seven years and she got married in a Pronovias gown, of course.  She went to the new shop at Rambla Catalunya, and she admits it was a unique experience, and she enjoyed sharing with the entire team and toasting together.

They got married at a Catholic church, the chapel of Sant Pere de Valldaneu, an absolutely ideal place in Sant Martí de Centelles, a quaint town in Catalonia. It’s one of those places that seem to have popped straight out of a fairytale.

Blogger “A trendy Life” picks some sparkling wedding guest outfits for this season

By Rebeca from A Trendy Life, LoveHunter 

Have you been invited to a wedding? Are you finding it difficult to decide what to wear? Have you searched high and low without finding the perfect dress? Don’t worry! Our tips and suggestions will guide you towards a look that will make you the perfect wedding guest. You are sure to dazzle everyone with your elegance and style.

The type of wedding to which you have been invited will narrow your choices. This means thinking about the venue and, most importantly, the time of day. If it’s a morning wedding, then your best choice is a cocktail dress, however, for an afternoon or evening wedding you can push the boat out and choose a stunning long dress or an evening dress with more glitter and beading than is fitting during the daylight hours. The time of day will also affect what you decide to do in terms of your hair and make up. In the evening you can be more dramatic, whilst during the day, less is certainly more.

You can’t go wrong with Bordeaux, a colour that looks superb during the autumn season. Why not try our Narima princess dress with a flattering bateaux neckline?  It is sure to be a hit.

If you prefer a ‘V’ neck and look good in figure-hugging styles, Narela is the one for you. Imagine how fabulous this dress would look worn with vintage gold effect accessories for a daytime wedding.

An evening wedding in autumn is a good excuse for wearing the wonderful Nabila  a dress in a lovely colour with flattering three-quarter length sleeves. This gown has glittering stones embroidered around the neck and a fabric belt effect around the waist, making accessorising a breeze.

Nagrid is a wonderful blend of elegance and sophistication, with a flattering shape and a V-neck. This is far more than your typical nude and white dress. The beautiful embroidery on the shoulders makes it truly original and special.

However, if you’re looking for something more discreet yet still up-to-date and fashionable, a jump suit is always a good option and they are particularly ‘in’ at the moment. Nisela in black looks chic with either gold and silver accessories, depending on the touch you want to add or what best suits you. If you look good in warm colours choose gold jewellery and accessories while if you find colder shades more flattering, go for silver.

Most important of all, regardless of the dress you choose, make sure that the style suits you and that you feel comfortable. That way, as well as looking great, you’ll have a marvellous time during the celebrations.
