Cue this romantic lace fit-and-flare wedding dress, featuring soft motifs and delicate illusion in a portrait-ready silhouette.

Non-Dress Items to Consider for Your Vintage Lace Wedding Dress
The Palette: Go for burnt corals, coppers, and greens for a mid-century aesthetic; pure whites and deep blues for high contrast; summery blues and mauves for a lazy-summer vibe; or citrus and greenery for cozy winter magic!
The Bouquet: Think pastel peonies for spring, or a berry-infused arrangement for an autumn wedding. These gown favorites also pair well with floral headpieces and birdcage veils.
The Shoes: Go flirty and modern to complement your bold lace motifs and casual-chic silhouette.
The Venue: Opt for accidental-Wes-Anderson with a watercolor-hued manor or old-school campground in the woods. Or light up an enchanted garden with Edison bulbs and mismatched lanterns. We’re also huge fans of a Roaring 20s-inspired pool party, complete with champagne towers and a jazz bandstand.
Your Sweetheart’s Attire:If your sweetheart is wearing a suit, a vintage-chic soiree calls for tweed or wool. If they’re wearing a dress and you’re part of the shopping process, a complementary silhouette in clean crepe or satin would look like a dream.
The Bridesmaids’ Dresses: Robin’s egg blue adds a kick of 1950s whimsy to your bridal party, while nudes and taupes keep the aesthetic modern and sophisticated. Consider shimmery pink for a Gatsby-inspired vibe, or off-the-shoulder for vintage boho á la 1973.
