While the focus of attention during a wedding is mostly on a bride and her stunning gown, there’s also an opportunity for bridesmaids and the mother of the bride to look their best. Spanish bridal boutique and designer, Pronovias, has launched their 2015 collections of stunning cocktail & ceremony gowns for all the other important women in the bridal party. Here are our picks for their hottest new designs.
Our picks from Pronovias’s 2015 Ceremony Collection
All of the gowns in this collection are floor length, with a vast majority of them with a sheath silhouette. We’ve picked gowns that showcase Pronovias’s variety and attention to detail. You’ll find dresses suitable for your bridesmaids or your mother and future MIL in figure flattering shapes and rich colours.
We love this Confetti-coloured gown, Algeria. Its trumpet silhouette and high neckline are set off with a beautiful scattering of crystal embellishments. Dress your chief bridesmaid in this gown if you’re having an Art Deco theme wedding for a fun pop of colour during your elegant evening reception.
Agar is the show-stopping fuschia ruffled gown up next. The figure-hugging mermaid silhouette is softened with layers of ruffles and whisper-thin halter straps. We see this dress making a statement alongside an equally fantastic bridal gown, one with lots of bling that can hold its own next to this magnificent gown.
Alheli is more reserved, but the bright crimson hue means it won’t be missed! The thigh-high slit in this subtle A-line gown, is sexy without being over-the-top. The gentle folds in the bodice caught our eye in this princess waist gown.
Nara’s exaggerated sweetheart neckline, trumpet silhouette and high-sheen gown commands attention. Figure-fitted and sexy, this gown will come into its own at an evening winter reception. Buy your chief bridesmaid a lovely faux fur shrug and a chic pair of kitten gloves to come warm long into the chilly night.
Another Art Deco inspired gown, Nela, is striking, with exquisite detail. This v-neck sheath dress would make a stunning contrast next to a winter white bridal gown. Or, if you’re opting for a less traditional colour for your wedding dress, pair it with this sexy silhouette to make a dramatic statement in your wedding photos.
Wine red and with soft crepe pleats, Nerea’s V-neck and mermaid silhouette is accented with intricate crystal details and 3/4 sleeves. Excellent for an outdoor autumn or winter wedding, your other bridesmaids could wear the same colour gown in various styles for a fantastic look.
Our final ceremony pick is the sassy yet sophisticated Nisela. Ankle length, high-waist trousers make this jumpsuit a bang on trend alternative to a traditional chief bridesmaid gown. Would suit a retro, vintage or Art Deco wedding down to the ground and it’s sure to turn heads.
Our picks from Pronovias’s 2015 Cocktail Collection
Pronovias’s Cocktail Collection is where to go for tea length dresses, suitable for bridesmaids and mothers of the bride or groom alike. Any of these dresses would look stunning during a daytime ceremony but could also be styled for elegant evening receptions, too. The colours are just as rich as the Ceremony Collection and the details just as intricate, leaving you with a tough decision to make.
Subtle but unforgettable, Alana’s sweeping boatneck and embellished overlay is ideal for a vintage, afternoon tea themed wedding. Dress it up with striking black pearl earrings and seductive stilettos and it’ll look a treat in an Art Deco theme, too.
The chiffon pleating on this cocktail gown make Almibar an excellent choice for a 1920s Gatsby theme. Alternatively, don your bridesmaids in tailored leather jackets for a fun and effortless rock ‘n’ roll chic style.
Narela is a classic, typical bridesmaid dress. Figure-fitting, with a simple v-neck and sophisticated appearance, you could dress your entire group of girls in this beautiful Pronovias gown.
Narima is elegant and crimson with beautiful lace detail that makes this gown ideal for a vintage wedding. We love this short ballgown and think it’d look sweet as part of a winter wedding.
