If the quest for the immaculate dress can be complicated for the bride, the choice of her outfit when getting ready for the wedding of her children is just as much of challenge. "She will be seen by all the guests, photographed ... It is therefore necessary to bet on something she assumes but which, at the same time, will not eclipse the bride", summarizes fashion connoisseur and blogger Maëlis Jamin-Bizet.

Indeed, the most important thing is to be comfortable. If we are not used to being in skirts or dresses, we will be able to turn to elegant trousers, a model palazzo for example, or simply to a pantsuit. "Be careful, however, the latter remains a difficult piece that forgives little defects. On the other hand, it is perfect and definitely more practical for the evening, as an alternative to the long dress."
Beautiful Materials and Harmonious Colors

The fashion experts therefore recommend betting on hair jewelry that is not just more discreet but just as elegant if you want accessorize your hairstyle.
