Sublime Softness: Pronuptia Boheme 2011 Wedding Dresses

There’s not a lot that bothers me about wedding dresses – other than the fact that they are too big and too expensive for me to have a closet full – but I have now and then wished that the bulk of them could be a bit softer. All that rustling that you hear when pushing your way through racks of gowns often means a stiff, scratchy experience for the wearer. That’s why I’m loving the Pronuptia Boheme collection for 2011, with its drapey dresses and soft fabrics. Aren’t these gorgeous?

Blanche de Bohème is a crossover-effect bustier wedding dress in lace tulle embroidered with flowers with plumetis tulle gathered at the waist and highlighted by a wide Obi belt in duchess satin embellished with flowers.

Flower de Bohème in ivory gazard is an a-line wedding dress richly strewn with tone on tone flowers. The heart-shaped décolleté, the arms and the shoulders are veiled by a fine lycra tulle and the back is closed by crystal buttons.

Empire de Bohème is, you guessed it, an empire wedding dress in pleated tulle and lace. The swimsuit décolleté is highlighted by a refined guipure, while the bosom is covered with a taffeta drape.

Scarlette de Bohème is an adorable two-piece wedding dress in ivory taffeta. The blouse with its balloon sleeves buttoned on the front is accompanied by a dramatic skirt with a long train, and the waist is highlighted by a wide draped belt adorned with two pastel flowers.

Mélodie de Bohème features an A-line silhouette in draped silk dupion and plumetis tulle frill. The bustier neckline on this ultra feminine wedding dress adorned with a hand-painted silk flower is accompanied with swimsuit straps finished by a rose button. A bouquet of silk roses and pleated organza frills gives the finishing touch!

    I definitely feel the days of the go-to strapless ballgown are limited. Softer, less opulent fabrics and A-lines with higher waists are just the remedy for the over-the-top 90s style.
