We always recommend brides wait until they’ve chosen a venue to begin shopping for their wedding dress. Because both the dress and venue set the tone for the wedding it’s important they work together to bring out the best in each other. For brides who’ve already set their venue and are ready to start shopping for a gown, we’re sharing some of our favorite dresses for the most popular venue styles.
Planning a museum wedding? It’s key to find a dress that matches the unique, artistic tone of the venue. You want something that will keep all eyes on you without being overly complicated to compete with the art—so we love this sleek fit and flare from Sareh Nouri. The classic silhouette paired with the scoop neckline keep things simple, while the bold bow detail in the back gives the dress the perfect amount of drama for your museum wedding.
The natural elegance of a garden ceremony calls for an equally ethereal gown to suit the gorgeous surroundings. Floral-inspired designs work perfectly, fitting right in among the flowering plants. This Flora design features three-dimensional floral applique on the bodice, creating an illusion look and giving the dress a nature-inspired look perfect for the venue. The skirt is made of layers of sheer tulle, floating as you walk and giving the dress an ethereal elegance.
For a historic venue, we love the look of a modern wedding dress with traditional design elements. A timeless bridal gown like this Caroline Castigliano design is perfect for a historical mansion—simple and classic. The traditional silhouette and understated elegance of the design complement a historic venue perfectly. The off-the-shoulder neckline is timeless, giving this dress a gorgeous look you’ll still love in 30 years.
The perfect casual-yet-chic tone of a rooftop wedding is a hard line to toe—you want something beautiful, high end, and fashionable yet still effortless. The answer may be a sleek, understated fit and flare from Kelly Faetanini. The spaghetti straps and simple design keep things effortless and laid back, while the figure-flattering silhouette and plunging neckline add a sultry effect perfect for the high-end look of a rooftop wedding.
