How to be an Iconic Bride by Keyla Diaz from Tendencias de Bodas

by Keyla Díaz, author of  Tendencias de Bodas

It would seem that choosing the wedding dress of one’s dreams tends to be quite a difficult decision. It is all too easy to fall in love with various styles, all offering you a distinct bridal look. But today we are going to focus in on how to be an iconic bride, and to do that Pronovias will be our closest ally.

There are three ways to become an iconic bride: like Lady Di you’ve transcended in history and been the face of an entire decade; or like Grace Kelly you’ve swooned the entire world with your beauty and innate elegance, or because you’ve managed to create the perfect iconic bridal look thanks to your wedding dress that not only is fashionable now, but will be many years from now as well.

You would be surprised to know that you don’t have to give up what’s in style currently in order to have a timeless bridal look. Distinguish amongst the fleeting trends and prop yourself up with your personal style, not only in choosing your wedding dress, but also in the choice of your shoes, jewellery, hair and makeup.

The dress

When it comes to choosing your dress, it is ideal if you imagine designs that are based off a classic cut, that have a trendy touch to them. The trendy touch can come in many shapes or forms – perhaps a new pattern, interesting beading or an innovative fabric. The classic sweetheart or bateau necklines never go out of style, similar to the timelessness of an A-line or princess ball gown.

However, there are many other ways to achieve a timeless look for your best day ever, without having to wear a more classic gown. Dresses with detachable overskirts, boleros, removable sleeves, all these versatile elements add a trendy touch to otherwise classic crepe gowns that flatter the female figure. We recommend the sweetheart neckline of Heaven dress (seen above) or the simple yet sophisticated Harpe dress from the Atelier Pronovias 2019 Preview Collection, as seen below, modeled by French blogger Adenorah.

The shoes


Backstage of #PronoviasInBloom

Today brides-to-be have endless options for their wedding day footwear. No longer do you have to wear white, now you can opt for pops of color, heels, flats, even boots! Yet, since we are talking about how to create a more iconic bridal look, we recommend a classic, simple white heel, such as an elegant pair of stilettos or a nude strappy sandal, depending on the season and location of your ceremony.

The jewellery

When it comes to timeless brides and what they wear for jewellery, we must highlight the following, always discreet, options: pearls and diamonds. You cannot go wrong with these two accessories. A fine, delicate diamond bracelet, heirloom pearl earrings, or diamond studs, and of course, your precious engagement ring… this is all you need! Think elegance, glamour and sentimental value.

The beauty look

In terms of hair and makeup on your wedding day, forget out the overdone, excessively perfect hair styles. The new classic bridal beauty look is simply sophisiticated and natural. Two perfect examples of modern day iconic bridal beauty looks would be that of Meghan Markle and influencer, Coral Simanovich.

For the makeup, opt for a natural palette, highlighting your best features and making you feel like the best version of yourself for the big day. Don’t overdo it when it comes to lip color; we recommend lip stains or lipsticks in nude, pink or light raspberry shades. Also, make sure to take good care of your skin prior to your wedding (if not always) to ensure that you have a natural glow and radiance.

For the hairstyling, you have many options in terms of flattering and iconic looks. From wearing your hair down in loose waves to a middle part, or from loose half-up dos or curls with a hair accessory, even a classic low ballerina bun for the most sophisticated brides – you will finish your bridal look off perfectly.

The next iconic bride will be you! Check out our current bridal collections on their website.
