Helena and her fairytale wedding
Nowadays the words marriage, wedding or commitment have completely changed meaning, as well as the mentality of couples who decide to take another step in their relationship. Although today we see with total normality the marriage of free consent, some time ago it was not so. Fortunately, society evolves and today, although many customs and traditions continue to be maintained in these events, they are the love and enthusiasm for sharing the protagonists of that day.
What has not changed over the years, is the desire to wear the best version of oneself and that includes one of the great elements: the dress.
Today I am going to talk about Helena, a bride whose name evokes myths and who had her fairytale wedding. Most of the brides who come to me, already have a clear idea of at least what they don't want to wear on their wedding day and in Helena's case this was: dressed in hard fabrics, princess skirts, a long tail, veils ... But yes, there was one thing that was clear: I wanted a bare back and a touch of lace, although I didn't know very well how or where.
After analyzing the shape of her body with different dresses from my wedding collections, seeing the falls of the different fabrics and talking about different ideas, the final design emerged: A beautiful dress in lace and chiffon. As Helena asked me, the main character was the back that was adorned with lace waves and a row of lined buttons.
The skirt, made with boards, had lightness and enough movement to make the dress light and comfortable. In addition, being chiffon, it did not provide extra volume thus stylizing the natural curves of his body.
The upper part of the body, also made of lace, highlighted his chest with a square neckline and ending in the heart. In addition the thin straps put all the attention in the area of the shoulders favoring even more this part of the body.
I already told you that Helena wanted comfort and that not only has to do with the dress, but also with the footwear. Whenever I talk about it with my girlfriends, I advise you that unless the shoe is going to show itself expressly, (either because there is an opening, the dress is short, etc.), it is better to resort to comfort in a day in which which you will surely spend many hours standing. Think that in the end you will only show the tip of the shoe. For this reason, Helena chose some basic espadrilles that I customized to match the dress: a very practical solution and then it will surely give you more than one use.
Traditions change and evolve but what is clear is that the wedding dress will always be the reflection of the most current society and right now we are faced with free, independent women who are increasingly struggling to get rid of the established molds. Unique women, Lorena Panea women.
