Some brides choose not to wear a veil on their wedding day and wear a headdress or jewels instead. However if you have decided to wear one I’ve got some tips so you can choose the one that fits your look and dress better.

Veils seemed like a thing of the past on their way out of bridal fashion but as it usually happens… they are coming back!

Trends are a volatile thing that come and go. Today a good number of brides decide to bring back this traditional accessory that brings a special, romantic and mysterious touch to their look.

Brides include veils as a central part of their look although they tend not to cover their faces with it and just attach it to their hair or updo.

The range of options is significantly wide due to the different types of veils available:

– Simple, with decorations, lace edgings, natural silk, tulle…

The possibilities don’t end there. The different ways a bride can wear the veil adds ever more options:

– Over or under their updo, over or under the headdress…

A very important detail you must consider before you make a decision on your veil is that it must be perfectly integrated and matched with the colour of your dress and the pattern of the dress through lace edgings or embroideries.

I sincerely hope these tips help you pick the perfect veil for your look, style and dress. Don’t hesitate and ask if you have any further questions about veils. I’ll be glad to help.

Most brides hesitate when it comes to wearing an underskirt with their dress.

While it seems necessary with evasé or princess style dresses, is it so with more fit designs?

Mermaid style dresses don’t always require the use of this accessory although it really depends on the type of fabric the dress is made of. For example dresses made with silk lack fullness, drop a bit too much and adhere to your silhouette and will look way better if you wear an underskirt.  

 

An Underskirt for Each Dress

Other models, depending on the fullness you seek for your skirt, must be used with different types of underskirt:
– To achieve fullness use an underskirt with overlapped flounces. The effect you get with it can be seen on the following picture.

– On the other hand if what you need is for your dress not to be too tight around your legs and hips, we suggest a underskirt with hoops on its outlines.

cancan-aros
– And if you decide to wear a short dress, go for a layered fabric underskirt to add movement to your skirt.

Did you know beading could make your dress look like a completely different one?
It’s elegant and haute couture and that’s the reason at Villais we sometimes use this element on our dresses. 

And the best part? This type of details not only add a different style to your dress but also they are unique since they are hand sewn.

On a general basis, beading is made out of crystal combined with some other type of gemstones like matte pearl or mother of pearl.

We mostly use crystals, pearls or sequins. One of the dominant trends nowadays is crystal lined with thin tulle. It changes their appearance.

How to Use Them into Your Wedding Look

They can be used in a million ways like belts, shoulders, necklines, backs…

Still a little lost on what kind of dress can use some beading? Write these tips down:

– It’s perfect for simple and plain dresses like those made with mikado, crepe or muselin.

– Dresses with delicate lace can use a small touch of beading to highlight its lines and bring more life to it.

Sometimes finding the perfect wedding dress can become an exhausting odyssey, doesn’t it? That’s why I want to help you make it easier. Today I’ll give you some tips on the ideal dress depending on the size of your breasts.

First things first: there’s no such thing as a perfect body. Looking good in front of a mirror depends heavily on knowing some tricks to turn your complexion into your ally instead of your enemy.

 

TIPS FOR SMALL BREASTED WOMEN

 

Do you have small breasts? Let’s see which type of neckline adapts better to your body shape.

Halter Neckline

Square Neckline

Boat Neckline

Using some of this necklines you’ll create the illusion of a bigger chest.

Extra Tips

 

You can also add a pushup bra to the combination. But remember it must be in a flesh tone, seamless and your dress shouldn’t allow it to be seen.

Another way to get some extra volume adding applications, details, texture or motifs to the bodice of your dress.

Therefore stay away from straight strapless dresses or even the ones with thin straps.

And if you feel like wearing some print or decoration I recommend you use some kind of simple embroidering. The more you fill the top part of your dress with elements, colour and motifs the higher volume you’ll add to your chest.

 

TIPS FOR BIG BREASTED WOMEN

 

If your case is the opposite and you have big breasts don’t worry. Follow these tips and you’ll be gorgeous.

The most favoring necklines for big breasted women are v-neck but those aren’t your only option.

VNECK

escote-v

 

Dresses tied to the neck are a great support for your breasts and dissimulate their size. A strapless dress is also a good choice.

Straps

Strapless / Sweetheart

palabra-honor

 

Stay away from closed or high necklines like square, boat or sweetheart since they won’t adapt to your body.

The Perfect Shade

 

The print and shades of the dress are to be considered as well.

In order to hit bullseye avoid flawless white and steer towards champaigne, beige or nude tones or even very light pinks.
