Are you going to be the wedding godmother? We give you the style rules to go perfect for the big occasion.
After the bride and groom, the godmother of the wedding plays a very important role and will be the centre of all eyes. The bridesmaids have infinite possibilities when dressing but there are certain rules that they must follow and that is marked by the type of ceremony: day or afternoon, civil or religious … Discretion will be the best ally, the key will be to be elegant and special but without eccentricities.
The bridesmaids are the only ones who in a noon ceremony can choose to go long, in case they choose short the rest of the guests should always go short. In daytime weddings, a colourful headdress or a hat will be the star accessories, as long as it is not too ornate so as not to take the centre off the rest of the outfit. In evening weddings, the designer advises opting for an elegant dress as special as the occasion deserves.
Colours. White is reserved for the bride and all its shades such as light beige that can be confused so as not to overshadow the protagonist. Except for black and white, a pearl grey or silver, turquoise green, lilac, violet or even passion red is suitable. The godmother can choose the colour that suits her best.
Fabrics. For this special occasion, the designer opts for natural fabrics, high-end silks, hand embroidery or French Chantilly lace.
Shapes. Although all shapes are allowed, the anatomy of the godmother must be taken into account to choose the model that best suits her. It is convenient to highlight the parts of which you feel more confident, but following the protocol that does not advise excessive necklines although it does allow, for example, a neckline in the back, as long as it is not exaggerated. A detail that will be taken care of especially in religious weddings at the time of the ceremony, you can wear a somewhat low-cut dress but covered with a jacket or shawl that can be removed at the subsequent party.
