Although your wedding day is different to any other day of the year…

 

It doesn’t mean that you should change your personal style or your personality when choosing your wedding dress or hairstyle!

 

For this reason, I’ll give you some ideas about different hairstyles according different personalities.

 

Here we go!

 

1-. For the most natural, free spirited ones:

Those who love the nature and, as could not be otherwise, think on their wedding day in a cove or in the mountains… Those who prefer comfort and nature… and that would go barefoot or with sandals…

Here are my options!

An easy and messy braid. If you prefer, you can decorate it with wild flowers, but always with the natural touch that characterizes you.

Or hair down with a flower crown. As you look your best!

floral_teenager_nature_flowers_tree_landscape-711907 trenzas-des1

 

2-. For the boldest ones:

If you like breaking the rules and everyone turns around to look at you due to your originality…

Go for a genuine vintage-style hairstyle!

Personally, I love the “20 fingers waves” option, with dream waves or an “old Hollywood” style with a pin-up touch.

Be aware! The boldest celebrities already wear these hairstyles, why don’t you?

vintage1 vintage2

 

3-. For the most romantic ones:

For all those who have been dreaming with their wedding and imagining every detail… For those who have an elegant and classical style but with a chic touch…

You can choose a low bun, braided or with tiara. You’ll be the princess you have always dreamed of!

clasica1 clasica2

 

4-. For the most original and entrepreneurial ones:

For the modern woman with a more casual style…

I recommend putting your hair up, in a pony tail, from a relaxed and low style to a high pony tail.

Do not think that it’s a normal hairstyle as the ones you wear every day!

There are dresses and urban-style weddings to which this look fits perfectly!

If you want that your personality stands out, use accessories such as tiaras, brooches or braids. The result would be incredible!

coleta1 coleta2 coleta3

 

5-. For those who prefer simplicity:

If you reject an elaborate and pompous style… Choose a natural and relaxed style!

There are more options than wearing your hair down. A good idea could be braided buns, that are simple but at the same time flattering.

Today I’m truly happy. And, do you why? Because I’m blessed to be able to shout from the roof tops that I love my job. I love designing.

I love imaging how the new dresses would look like on you. I love creating different styles of dresses, so you can look for the dress which you feel completely comfortable on your special weeding day. It’s an incredible feeling! But, if creating them makes me happy… Imagine how I feel when I look at you wearing them!

Patricia, from Ponferrada, is the responsible of this overflowing happiness. Wait, don’t go away! I’m going to tell you the story! Patricia was seeking a fresh style. Kind of informal and, of course, without a train.

Her wedding must be surrounded by a natural environment, and thus she needed a lightweight and flowing fabric. Something different! Once she had a clear idea, she went to Godët, a shop in Ponferrada that we are so fortunate to collaborate with in order to sell our Villais dresses. And the miracle occurs! Patricia found her dress. It was as she imagined. She dreamed about wearing a natural, simple but elegant wedding dress.

A dream materialized in … a Villais dress! And … here is the result!

img-20171206-wa0030

Considering all clues that I’ve given you, would be able to tell me which Villais collection the dress belongs to?

img-20171206-wa0029

img-20171206-wa0032

YES! It belongs to the LOVE collection! In particular, to the model 171806And these little stories make me feel so happy at work. Patricia got the dress of her dreams and, both the Villais and the Goët team are delighted that she has trusted us.

img-20171206-wa0031

Nature inspired wedding, more casual. Both in the landscape and accessories chosen by our bride to add a perfect touch.

img-20171208-wa0000

Thank you very much to our beautiful couple! But also to you all, because you are the soul of Villais!

Ease and simplicity. Quality over quantity.

Those are the keys of the latest trend for organising and celebrating your wedding!

The objective? To slow down the pace of life, prioritise personal relationships and enjoy every moment of preparation.

Remember, you’re getting married for love and not to satisfy anybody but the two of you.

photo-1396110

 

Slow wedding breaks protocols and labels to leave your guests open-mouthed.

Your wedding must be a reason to enjoy yourself and to do so with gusto, not a cause for worry which stresses you out on such a special day.

It’s about choosing how you want your wedding to be and, above all, how you want to experience it, but always at your own pace!

What’s more, this trend is associated with low cost: avoiding spending a lot of money in order to invest in love and kindness. This way, the wedding will be focused on the most important thing, the two of you!

 

Now we’re getting down to business… Let’s begin!

 

If there’s one thing which characterises a Slow wedding, it’s celebrating it outdoors, like in a garden, a beach, a vineyard, a field or a forest.

inspiracion-2 inspiracion wedding_couple_groom_bride_love_kiss_sea_big_day-736330

 

Just let your imagination run free without any stress!

Also, as these are such natural places, high heels won’t be your friends that day. I would opt for sandals or flat shoes, wedges or even barefoot should you decide to celebrate on a sandy beach.

wedding_flower_bouquet_dress_bride-49098

 

I know what you’re wondering… What about the dress? What is it like for this new concept?

I can tell you that comfort takes priority over ornate designs, but that it should reflect you and you should feel yourself whilst wearing it.

I would go for dresses from the Cala, Cosmo City Bride or Love by Villais collections, with neither corset nor cancan, opting for something simple. Here are some examples to give you an idea:

calaCala Collection

vestido-de-novia-urbano-cosmo-2018-dhaka-01Cosmo City Bride Collection

 

loveLove Collection

 

In terms of hair and makeup, go for something subtle and simple, too, achieving a natural look.

Nude and light tones will be your best allies. Don’t overdo it. And, in your hair, a crown of flowers or a loose plait will look stunning on you.

flower_wedding_bouquet_bride_flower_arrangement-146974

 

The decoration should be natural, but always reflecting your personality. You can go for pallets, straw, wooden benches with vintage and country-esque touches…

And, of course, flowers, plants, pine cones or trees, ideal!

wedding_bride_knife_table_pinecone-39941 wedding_groom_glass_pinecone_table-39915 wedding_party_bunting_flags_tableware-102699

 

Your guest list should include the important people, those closest to you.

 

Decide who you really want to be there and send them an invitation with all of your love. If it’s personalised, even better!

guest-cat-2764280_1920

 

girl_kid_child_hands_eggs_easter_spring_coloring-722949

 

Never mind protocols or making a good impression. There’s no need! For this reason, remind them that the important thing is that they feel comfortable, without labels or protocols.

Their presence is all that is needed.

And, of course: They should sit wherever they wish!

inspiracion-3

 

I’m sure a banquet with healthy food from the area, or the couple’s favourite dish, will be a real hit.

party-2751757_1920 photo-1215552

 

I recommend a restaurant close to the celebration venue or, if you decide to have it all outside, maybe some tables to eat at in a more informal manner. This idea favours conversation and the relationships between your guests.

The most important thing is that everybody feels that they are participating, and that you feel as close and surrounded as possible.

bride-2470855_960_720

 

Finally, remember that you don’t have to stick to the meal times of lunch or supper, you can choose brunch or a relaxed aperitif, it’s super original and your guests will never forget it!

With all of this, I hope to have helped you with this new concept which is breaking all of the moulds and, what’s more, which favours your economy.

 

And… in case you’re still in doubt… I’ll summarise:

  • Do what you really fancy and whatever you feel comfortable with.
  • Avoid rushes and protocols. It’s your wedding, you decide!

people-2942928_1920

 

But, above all:

Remain calm and put your heart into your wedding!

We always tend to associate weddings with the months from May to October.

But… What about winter? Why not make the most of the white blanket of snow in order to celebrate your day?

Take a risk and find that difference which will make all of your guests remember that day more than any other. Seek out your special wedding, with a lot of personality, which is out of the ordinary and which, of course, has a stamp on it, your stamp!

And, of course, there’s nothing more personal and different than… A wedding in the cold!

If Olivia Palermo or Ana Boyer opted for this season, why not you?

Take advantage of a day during the Christmas holidays which would be ideal for getting all of your family and friends together, or a long weekend when you are all available.

Just imagine the atmosphere that you could create: You’d be the snow queen in surroundings glistening with fairy lights or candles all around you. It’s ideal!

 

So… Let’s get started!

 

If you’re worried about surviving the cold… That’s simple!

Any of the stunning dresses from the Villais or Cosmo collections will go perfectly due to their full skirts and layers. The trick is adding a cape or a stole, thick tights and some lovely velvet shoes. Although you don’t need to wrap up completely, just think, what with your excitement and the hustle and bustle, you’ll soon warm up.

If you manage to make the coats or capes part of the ceremony like people do with fans in the summer, you’ll have triumphed!

For this occasion, I would avoid a long veil so as not to get it dirty and I’d add a special touch with dried flowers or jewelled tiaras which will be stupendous.

boda-invierno-17

boda-invierno-12-enfemenino

 

To make your photographs stand out in the cold surroundings, I would choose white and bright tones or some beige for the stole. Try to use only light tones to stand out more!

Now you’re asking yourself: Fine, but where should I hold it? And how?

 

I propose two ideas:

On one hand, a great idea would be to choose a welcoming and elegant room with frozen and unusual decoration. I think that it will be key in order to create a beautiful atmosphere and, that way, you won’t be cold. Also, just think that it will be much more economical at this time of year than in the middle of the wedding season.

boda-invierno-20

boda-invierno-19

 

I reserve the second option for the most daring who want to really make the most of the winter and opt for celebrating their wedding outside amongst nature. For example, in the  Sierra de Gredos.

boda-invierno-13-bodasnet

 

If you play around with torches, candles, cushions or coats, it will be splendid. There’s a multitude of decorative elements to combat the cold, you simply need to think about it and throw yourself into it!

What’s more, you could use the opportunity to give out blankets or beautiful scarves instead of the normal gifts that have become so tiresome.

Don’t forget to make the cloakroom an important element so that your guests can store their coats. It should be large and well signposted so that everybody knows where it is.

Of course, never forget the flowers. They always help to create a welcoming and pretty atmosphere. Simply opt for soft colours and dried bouquets.

foto-invierno-23

 

For the banquette, wintrier dishes which take inspiration from the season will be more entertaining. They will be welcomed and will add continuity to the atmosphere of the wedding.

Fallen leaves, artificial snow, logs and pine cones can also be used for decoration.

They’ll add a magical and romantic touch to the day.

boda-invierno-6

boda-invierno-11

boda-invierno-22

 

And to make it all more current, you can also create a selfie area with the ideas from Calista One.

In this case, it should be a space which fully encompasses the Nordic style, so that your guests take the best photographs and remember the winter wedding as the breakthrough idea of the momento.

Of course, it’ll be splendid to accompany it with a personalised hashtag so that you have all of the photos from your wedding within your reach. Like… #TheWinterWeddingOfTheMoment #VeryColdVeryWedding #ABlanketAndLetsGetMarried…

boda-invierno-8

 

And, if that’s not enough, you can also create a food corner, that is to say, a special place for your guests to have a snack at any given time, such as a delicious hot chocolate with some cakes or… Christmas puddings!

boda-invierno-9

 

Now that you’ve seen these basic tips for your cold wedding… What do you say?

 

Are you willing to take a risk and break all of the wedding rules in favour of something new and different?

 

Tell us what you think!

If there’s one thing which characterises Villais, it’s the fact that they offer you more diverse dresses so that you can find the one which most defines you.

And, if you find that dress which is so “you”, you will have the answer to your next question: Where shall we go on our honeymoon?

Good, well today I’m going to show you a few destinations for a selection of our dresses.

Ready?

Let’s go!

 

ADVENDTURER

If you’re the type who gets bored lazing around on the beach for days, you will surely enjoy a more active plan. And… if that’s the case, let me show you a dress from the CALA collection which you might like. It’s short and daring, just like you, are you bold enough to consider the most daring of honeymoons?

How about the legendary ROUTE 66 which crosses the United States?

Climb onto a Harley and visit Chicago, Missouri, Texas, California, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Hollywood and many more, all on two wheels!

aventurera-cala-cebu

Amboy, Kalifornien, USA, Hist. Route 66

But if you still don’t have a motorbike, maybe your destination is AFRICA!

I’m sure that if you choose a honeymoon like this, you like more comfortable dresses which let you move freely.

Go for a dress with a big leg slit, it’s very trendy and it will help you to run away to…

A safari in a 4×4 in Tanzania, a route through the Kilimanjaro, luxury trees to spend nights surrounded by nature in South Africa or see the Great Migration in Kenya surrounded by giraffes and zebras. It’s fantastic!

aventurera-cala-niaf

ROMANTIC AND RELAXED

You may be the type who fancies going to a quiet place and embracing your partner overlooking the crystal-clear waters of a white beach.

Choose a more southern model, specifically, Bahama from the CALA collection. Does that ring a bell?

Pack your bags and head to THE BAHAMAS! Outstanding vegetation, breath-taking waterfalls, a nice beach bar and straight to the beach to kick back in a hammock. How relaxing!

relax-cala-bahama-2

NATURAL AND CULTURAL

But maybe you prefer to traipse around in search of culture and soak up knowledge. If that’s the case, you will surely find your answers in the Villais collection with classic or cutting-edge touches, as you wish.

If you want something completely new, your destination could be THAILAND. How do you fancy discovering unforgettable scents, intense tastes, incredible animals, ruins or real tribes? It will be perfect!

clasicas-villais-nyasa

clasica-natural

But if you much prefer the cold and the north… Why not get lost in the NORWEGIAN FJORDS?

Think about it: Enjoy the untouched nature, truly magical forests, visit the biggest prehistoric glacier in Europe, look out for northern lights or climb to the top of a mountain with views over the Aurlandsfjord. You can’t wait, right?

One thing’s for sure, you’ll need a long-sleeved dress if the cold gets to you, how about this one?

clasicas-villais-amur

clasica-natural-fiordos

 

MORE COSMOPOLITAN

And… finally, we’re going to explore large cities, to discover, visit and traipse around. This time we propose two dresses for the most cosmopolitan of brides from… Of course! The Cosmo City Bride Collection!

We’ll start with a marvellous city which is cosmopolitan, the protagonist of millions of films and one which we have all dreamed of visiting, NEW YORK!

Take a panoramic tour by helicopter to see it from above, visit the Big Apple, stroll down Fifth Avenue looking for museums and shopping destinations, let Times Square blow your mind or cross Central Park by bicycle.

You will surely look perfect in a dress which highlights your figure and is hot on the heels of the latest trends set by the great city.

cosmopolitas-osaka-cosmo-copia

cosmopolita-ny-copia

And if you can’t decide on just one city, why not choose several?

How do you fancy a TOUR OF EUROPE? Paris, Rome, Venice, Vienna and Berlin. Cities with a splendid charm which are very romantic and full of history. It’s perfect!

Here, your style could be a dress with a romantic back like Paris and Venice, with a classic touch like Venice, but one that people like you, who love visiting places, feel comfortable wearing. Spectacular!

cosmopolitas-atenas-cosmo

I truly hope that you have enjoyed this journey to different places around the world with our most representative dresses.

But, remember: you can also choose a short dress to wear on your honeymoon to Venice or one which is classic and voluminous in South Africa. To each their own!

 

Now it’s your turn, what’s your ideal dress for your honeymoon?

Hi, girls!! It seems the cold is on its way, right?

And since when has that been an obstacle when it comes to getting married?

We have some advice to set you thinking and, you’ll see, soon you’ll be dying to throw yourself into autumn!

 

What should I wear?

Yes, girls, I would wave goodbye to the CALA collection which is better suited to the good weather (unless you’re from somewhere more temperate) and go for our VILLAIS, LOVE or COSMO CITY BRIDE collections.

As for the dress, I have three suggestions for you, depending on how daring you are:

1.- A long dress with a slight lace sleeve and, sure enough, you’ll look incredible!

coleccion-villais

 

2.-  If you’re feeling somewhat daring, I would choose a dress with a beiger tone or even a pale pink. It’s ideal for this time of year!

coleccion-love-rosa

3.-  And… at the highest level… Only if you’re someone who’s as daring as they come… Get married in trousers or a jumpsuit! More and more celebrities are opting for this option and we think it’s spot on.

coleccion-love-mono

 

What’s more, it’s a season in which it’s neither hot nor cold. These are the perfect climatic conditions for choosing the fabric which favours you the most.

 

Where should I hold it?

It’s autumn, let’s not be alarmed.

We can choose either a covered area or one that’s outside.

The key lies in finding a place that’s cosy. If you decide to get married outside, I would decorate the area with some torches or lanterns and choose somewhere a little sheltered. This way, I’m sure you’ll manage to give your big day that special touch that you’re looking for.

 

Do you see yourself getting married on a terrace with breath-taking views of the sea?

casarse-con-vistas-al-mar-puro-romanticismo-5

W Barcelona Hotel

And walking upon a blanket of dry leaves?

boda-otono-naturaleza

Also, in both October and November the light is incredible for photographs, if you don’t believe it, take my word for it and tell me about it later!

 

Which accessories are fitting?

Starting with the bouquet, which is often the focus of everyone’s attention, dried flowers can give it a look which is both very autumnal and beautiful at the same time.

As for jewellery and other accessories:

If you decide on a white dress, I would go for brown, gold, burgundy, purple or blue tones which are perfect for this season.

boda-otono-corona

Wedding trends

 

But, if you have taken a risk with the colour of your dress, then I would choose less striking tones such as pearls, whites or silvers.

Also, this time of the year lends itself splendidly to flowers in duller tones, which doesn’t make them any less beautiful, and many natural elements which, personally, I think are thrilling. Above all in flower wreaths (with ears of wheat, sunflowers or wild flowers).

boda-otono-colores

Pantone

 

Still not convinced?

Put on some boots which are more comfortable and warm, give out soft pashminas to your guests (instead of the espadrilles that are always given in summer) and don’t skimp on expenses as it’s low seasons for weddings and you’ll save a lot of money.

Sometimes it’s easy to fall in love with a dress but when it comes down to the accessories be at a complete loss. Has it ever happened to you? Don’t fret.

Let’s analyze all this season’s trends.

Check it out and I hope it helps you!

XXL earrings and a trendy necklace in order to shine more than ever

Obviously I haven’t forgotten about wedding traditions: something used, something borrowed, something blue. These traditions are really lifesavers regarding jewelry. Trust me, the results are amazing.

Choose XXL blue baroque style earrings borrowed from your mother, grandmother or even your mother in law… It could be the key! This way you’ll add a personal and eye catching touch to your look. If you don’t want to wear something borrowed I recommend my favorite stores: ACUS, Tiahra, Aristocrazy or TOUS (ranked from cheaper to more expensive).

As necklaces go I wouldn’t take chokers out of the table since they have really made a mark at Dior, Chanel and Saint Laurent’s shows. I agree, it’s risky but if the choice is good it’ll look astonishing!

Wedding trends

All aboard the bralette train

Not everything that matters is at plain sight. You must be comfortable and the way to achieve that comfort is the perfect lingerie. Choose according to your dress’ neckline and look for items that adapt to it.

I personally love brallettes… So romantic! Brands like Women Secret and Urban Outfiters offer some good quality economic options. If you are looking for something more upscale Andrés Sardá or La Perla are your go to brands.

Love your shoes

I know I’ve already told you this but the most crucial aspect is for you to be comfortable and enjoy your day. If you are not used to wearing heels it may be in your best interest to choose sandals or wedges (perfect with our CALA collection).

If you go for the heels I really love sandal style and thick heels. My fetish color is white but pastel or nude tones would look perfect while adding a beautiful touch to your look.

Needless to say I’d go for crystals, jewels and lace on the shoes. I really love those!

 

A very important “just in case”

Latest trends tell us that a jacket can be an essential piece of your wedding look. You heard well: more than the dress. How? It’s simple: a blazer!

You wouldn’t believe how this item can change a dress and in my opinion it’s perfect with overalls like this one from our colección LOVE or dresses with a lot of see through fabric.

Vogue

If you want to take it up a notch even more wear a stole, a bolero or a chal which are perfect for the occasion.

 

What about my hair?

I must say I saved best for last…

I’ve got to tell you a secret. I am a sucker for flower crowns (as I said before on this very blog). I really think they are ideal for all seasons. They have that natural and gorgeous essence we all look for on our wedding day.

They can be really simple if you don’t like to overdo it or be extravagant and spectacular if you prefer.

slider-hortensias_5

But for a change… let me say that this season I’m in love with tiaras and headbands. Thay have so much personality to add to your dress they’ll make you look the exact gorgeous bride you set out to be. You can even achieve the Greek goddess look!

corona img_7255

In addition I really like turbans this season. Along a LOVE or CALA collection dress by Villais they allow you to get that boho-chic look you were looking for. But if a turban is a bit too much for you can get the same effect by using bobby pins and ornaments on a braid.

Surely more than once you’ve thought about getting married at a beach. I love the idea.

Such a magical place will add romance and nature to your union. Just think about it for a second: the sound of the waves, the smell of the sea, a vibrant sunset and the perfect temperature… and what about no heels? That way you can feel the touch of the sand on your feet.

I want to give you some advice I consider to be key when it comes to a wedding beach

First you’ll need to set the time. In my opinion sunset is the ideal time. The right temperature, an intimate atmosphere and a great color pallette in the horizon for your wedding pictures.

Next is the infrastructure you’ll need: power, bathrooms, kitchen, catering, sound system…

Don’t forget to get the permit from the town hall on which the beach is. You may have to contact higher public offices depending how much space you want to use.

If yours is a civil wedding there won’t be any problems but if you choose a religious one you may find some resistance when it comes to taking the wedding out of the religious temple. Please take the tides into account!

You could be thinking it’s too complicated. In that case there are restaurants and hotels that offer this service if you celebrate the feast with them. They will take care of the bureaucracy I mentioned before.  

And what about the dress??

Fear not. When I designed the Cala Collection I had all of you who want a beach wedding in mind.

Let me explain it. Wedding dresses for celebrations at the beach need to be lighter, fresh and relaxed. Thus we use light fabrics like tulle, silk and plain or embroidered mesh.

You can choose a short dress that will let you move freely and feel more comfortable. However I understand it’s difficult to say no to a classic long dress so I focused on those. The line that works better with these dresses is straight or empire although I love mermaid silhouettes adding elegance while remaining comfortable.

Color? In this case I’d go for white since it’ll shine and highlight your tanned skin.

I feel like it’s unnecessary to use heels with these dresses. A nice pair of sandals with a touch of jewelry will make you look astonishing. But if you can’t resist, a pair of esparto wedges are the perfect solution.

I almost forgot! The hairdo I’d choose would be an updo to avoid your hair to get tangled.  Add a floral touch to pin the updo and you will look gorgeous.

Are you in for a wedding at the beach?

Before the wedding we all eagerly look forward to that moment when the love of our live declares to us. A nervous boyfriend looking for a ring, your ring, the one that will bring the two of you together for life. Then, one day, time stands still. He takes a knee as a symbol of his love and commitment and asks you to marry him. It’s magical!

But when and where did we started using rings in proposals?

It may be hard to believe but this tradition goes back more than 500 years to the time Archduke Maximilian of Austria gave Mary Burgundy a golden ring with a diamond as a token of his love.

The idea behind the diamond was for it to last in time, not because Marilyn Monroe said they were a girl’s best friend, but because they symbolize something indestructible and lasting. On top of that, rings are a circle because it’s the only shape with no beginning and no end, just like love!

More facts on engagement rings?

The ring is placed on the third finger, where old civilizations believed the love vein (vena amoris) to be and headed towards the heart. As to which hand to use it’s more of a geographical custom. In the USA, Canada, England, France and Mexico they use the left hand whereas in India, Russia or Germany they use the right one.

If you thought February was the month with most proposals due to Valentine’s… you are far from right. December is actually the month with the most proposals. Could there be a better gift for that time of year? Maybe this year you’ll get the surprise you are longing for. Can you imagine?

Kisses and hugs.

How long until your wedding? Are you counting the days until that special one? Nerve wrecking, isn’t it? Worry not, there’s plenty of time ahead. Time, for example, to celebrate your bachelorette party… or not.  

You don’t want the traditional bachelorette party? Not a fan of costumes and being the center of attention? Perfect! If you rather do something different, special with a reduced group of close friends, sisters and relatives here’s the best idea for you: a Bridal Party!

It’s a reunion with the closest people to you. An intimate celebration in a relaxed mood where you can enjoy a cocktail with the ones you love the most and know you better. They, your best friends and relatives will have presents selected just for you. They are the ones that know you best and can pick whatever it is you like need or crave. You’ll love them.

One of the keys to celebrating a Bridal Party is the venue. There’s a myriad of possibilities: from a greenhouse filled with your favorite flowers to a small cottage in the countryside, a cove on a remote island… Let your imagination fly!

Here are some ideas just for you…
