A Selection of Beautiful Pronovias Dresses

Posted by Aoife O Gorman

Here’s selection of five Pronovias San Patrick dresses and why they’re so beautiful.


With its mermaid silhouette and open lace back, Halsey might not look, at first, like the nod to traditional wedding dresses that it is. However, the all-over lace and the sweetheart neckline hearken back to the 1950’s, along with the wide lace straps that feed into the plunging back of the dress.


The tulle and lace applique and edging at the bottom of the dress are more undeniable vintage touches. Just because this dress has some traditional touches doesn’t make it suitable just for a traditional wedding.

The fishtail makes it just as appropriate for a church wedding as for a wedding on the beach, and the sexy back detail shows off a little skin, while the cut of the dress shows off the bride’s curves, without making the dress too provocative.

For the best of the old and the new, Halsey is a great choice for any bride.


For the bride looking for something truly unique and special, Hanns is the answer. Few other brides are going to wearing something like this this year, which is part of Pronovias’s genius.


The fitted, fishtail silhouette of this dress flatters any woman’s body, while the soft, light, fluttering ruffles on the skirt give the dress an ethereal quality. Ruching around the waist, from the bust to the thigh, slims the wearer and the flounce of the layered skirt is ultra-feminine.

The bust features a small amount of sparkle—just enough to draw attention, but not enough to distract from the rest of the dress or from the wearer herself.

For a bride that wants a flattering dress that will make her look great on her wedding day, that has detail, but isn’t overly flashy, look no further! Hanns is a great choice for any bride that wants something detailed and a little traditional, but isn’t a fan of lace.


You can almost imagine Grace Kelly wearing this exact dress if she was getting married this year. You get the traditional a-line shape that is universally flattering (as it nips in at the waist and then flares outwards), with a plunging v-neck, and a little bit of modern sparkle on the bust.


The dropped waist design will show off the bride’s natural waist, while little bursts of sparkle along the narrow belted waist, trailing up to the shoulders draw the eye upwards, towards the bride’s face.

This Pronovias design focuses entirely on the woman’s figure and making her look sleek and beautiful. The fullness of the pleated royal satin skirt hides pockets and gives the dress a more traditional shape, without turning the whole dress into a ball gown.

Both traditional and modern brides will love the cut and feel of this gorgeous dress.


Sadira is the ultimate dress for a summer or destination wedding. While the lace panels and ruching do lend some tradition to this gown, the rest of the Pronovias’s design is ultra-modern and endlessly sleek.


A lace panel gives a little more coverage to the sweetheart neckline on this design, giving this dress a beautiful, but not matronly high neck. It then sweeps over the shoulders and down the back, for an open-back, but lace-covered effect that is truly unique.

The ruching along the torso and skirt of this dress highlights the chiffon’s light, airy quality, which then trails behind the dress in an elegant, but still ethereal train. One of the most original features of Sadira is the thigh-high slit along the front of the dress, which adds a little more sex appeal to what is already a flattering and gorgeous dress (though the bride can have the slit sewn up if she prefers).


Another of Pronovias’s designs that hearkens back to a bygone era, Sophie is a dress any queen would be proud to wear on her wedding day. A perfect blend of the traditional and modern, this dress is ideal for just about any bride, and is designed to flatter just about any figure.


The lace that covers the entire dress and its a-line style is what gives Sophie a traditional feel. A straight-across, off-the-shoulder lace neckline and short lace sleeves, over fitted, sweetheart-neckline bodice add a regal element to this design, as does the beading that both literally and figuratively makes Sophie sparkle.

Fitted to the hips, where it then gently flares out to compliment any bride’s curves, this dress is incredibly detailed. It calls attention to, rather than takes attention away from, the bride wearing it.

While Sophie is beautiful as-is, some brides may choose to accent the dress with a waist-highlighting belt.
