I know that it’s wrong… and maybe bad luck too… but I had to do it. I needed a reason to walk through the doors of the Pronovias store in Madrid’s city centre, Sol, and sieze the opportunity to browse through their online catalogue of designer wedding gowns. So I concocted a little white lie of wedding bells and confetti, switched my diamond ring to my left hand and confidently requested assistance as I was supposedly ‘tying’ the knot this December.
Pronovias, from Barcelona, is a bridal house with stores that give personal consultations to every client. Blushing brides can schedule an appointment to try on exclusive designer gowns including those of the legendary, Elie Saab or you can have your dream dress personalised by combining your favourite elements from the Pronovias catalogue to create a mermaid gown or traditional corseted ballgown. The Spanish influence on the Pronovias catalogue is unmistakeable in its sensuality with its frills, draping and laces, but what’s more is they certainly know how to spin many metres of flowing silks to create a silhouette of regal beauty.
Having a Pronovias wedding dress made especially for you can take up to six months but like all things in life, the best things are worth waiting for… and since marriage is meant to be a lifetime of ‘happily ever after’ memories, it is only apprpriate to begin with a fairytale dress…
