Barcelona Bridal Week

Posted on May 14, 2011

Let’s have some pretty. Barcelona Bridal Week 2011 features five days of bridal collections from local and international designers. Five days! Those Euro-bitches sure take their weddings seriously.  Anyway, we thought we’d feature some of the looks because hey; who doesn’t need a little more pretty in their day? Bitter Bridal Kittens will be happy to know that strapless gowns are a rarity (although there are still plenty of sleeveless ones).  Enjoy your pretend shopping, ladies.

     If my bride looked as forlorn on her wedding day as some of these models do, I’d have a very long road ahead of me. 

    Also, pretty gowns, but the styling on the Bundo pieces irks me. Nothing like hair teased to look like a bird’s nest–or just sticking an actual bird’s nest in there–to communicate the love and magic of your special day. Oh, and let’s finish it off with some clown make-up. 

    • Too-opinionated

      Yeah, what you said. And it’s not just the Bundo – the Victorio and Lucchino ladies look pissed about their dreadful hair too – note how the one with the least cray-cray hair looks most happy (well, happy for this bunch). ladies look pissed about their dreadful hair too – note how the one with the least cray-cray hair looks most happy (well, happy for this bunch).

     Don’t want to wear any of them. Clearly this is a sign for me to not get married!

Now I can (make that a “could”…) get married, without being forced to look at Mormon Bridal wear (Modest Brides, it is a real thing and a friend of mine actually thought about buying her dress there, because of the sleeves!). Sleeves! Do you think the english wedding deserves some thanks? And: Sleeves!

     Thank goodness for interesting styling! I am tired of looking at bridal magazines in which every bride has the same freaking veil and elegant-but-understated hairdo. Yes, it’s what most women want, so that’s fine for catalog purposes, but it’s cool to see these more fanciful and visually interesting looks, if for no other reason than to perk up the all-white parade.

     God, I love Pronovias. They’re all stunning but that first one is classic, yet inventive. It’s a mantilla veil, for the bride who doesn’t want a veil. Genius.

    Okay, but who am I kidding. If I could get married all over again, I’d do it in gown #3.

    What’s wrong with sleeveless and strapless wedding dresses? o_o
    Though I’m a (gay) man who would never actually wear a wedding dress, so I wouldn’t know what runs through a woman’s mind while she shops for wedding dresses. 

    The first collection was beautiful, third was alright, and the second and fourth one were just dull to me. 
    Notice how the collections with the least interesting dresses had the most “interesting” (aka ugly) styling choices. Oh you can’t fool me, cheeky designers.

    • SewingSiren

      Richi,
      There is really nothing wrong with strapless wedding dresses. It’s just that the strapless gown has been so popular for the last 10 year or so that people are reacting against. Similarly at the end of the enorumous puff sleeve (which can quite charming if done correctly) trend, the puff sleeve was much hated ect..Personally I don’t go to enough weddings to be tired of any trends.

    I think the wedding photos would be lovely if the bride wore the first Raimundo Bundo dress…nothing like a wedding portrait to hang in the in-laws living room of their son and the fine pair of nipples he married. And all I can think with the last Jesus Peiro model is she picked a fine dress to go with her implants. And those last two Victorio and Lucchino dresses look like upscale peignoirs from the 60′s. And I really hope walking down the aisle with a hatbox In lieu of flowers catches on, very practical unlike flowers-after the wedding in can be used for storage.

    One thing of note in the issue of sleeves/straps–I’m not surprised that this was in Barcelona, because in Spain (at least when I was there about five years ago) most churches have a “rule” asking women to cover up their bare shoulders in cathedrals/churches, so it’s not surprising to me that most of the gowns here have straps/sleeves. I agree, it’s refreshing, but there are probably reasons for it that aren’t entirely about fashion.

     Strapless dresses are so ridiculously unflattering on most women, especially if you’re well-endowed. When I went through the rig-a-morol of trying to find a wedding gown, most of the gowns I had to choose from were strapless. And idk about most women, but I certainly didn’t want to walk down the aisle looking like I replaced my boobs with a breadbox.

    I am not really into wedding dresses at all.  But, it is nice to see so few strapless gowns.  My old roommate worked at David’s Bridal and she complained about how so many customers would complain about how every dress was strapless.

    Lilithcat:  I love to read your comments — I always look for them.  Why the hatboxes indeed!  Maybe it is an indecisive bride who heads down the aisle and decides which headpiece to wear at the last minute.  Of course if it is a princess, they will just need tiara boxes.

     The second to last one looks like her wedding cake exploded in her face and now she’s wandering aimlessly looking for assistance.

    She’ll need them to store her boobs when the inevitably fall out of that top.

     Does “Pronovias” translate to “Yay! Wedding”? #3 Pronovias is a dress for the ages. But I find myself drawn to Jane Austen Fantasy (Victorio and Lucchino #4), Dazed Shepherdess (Jesus #4), and Run from the Altar, Lola, Run (Bundo #1). I never really thought about wedding dresses as literal costumes, but here they really do seem like stage attire!

    Sigh, makes me want to get married all over again.

    Ladies if there is one piece of advice you should heed when it comes to your wedding, it’s make sure you love the dress. Don’t settle for what you think you should wear, or what others want you to wear. Biggest mistake ever.

       Aw, that makes me kind of sad.

    I was lucky enough to find a bridal shop that helped you design your own gown and I got exactly what I wanted.  Of these gowns the Pronovios #5 is the only one that draws my attention.  I’m not a sleeve advocate and may have ended up in a Wilma if I got married today.  10 years next month.

     I’m tempted to divorce my husband and then remarry him so I can wear that second Jesus Peiro gown.
