This version of our wedding lookbook examines the vintage bride: gowns and veils made to fit an iconic era.
The Victorian age was one of the most delicately extravagant. When you picture this era, lace and embroidery, tea and proper etiquette, gentle strolls through the promenade should come to mind.

The best accessories that go best with the bestseller at brideinvintage.com

Dear lovers of Nataya Couture dresses, today we have a glimpse at two of our other gems, the Venetian Dresses.

These dresses were launched in two colors, cream and white. So, you must choose your accessories very wisely, especially when it comes to the white dress! But go ahead and take a deep breath because the Venetian ornamentation is already so decorative. Half the job has been done for you already!

Remember that just like too many cooks spoil the broth, over-accessorizing will detract from the beauty of the ornaments, which are really the whole point of these lovely gowns.

Starting with the white dress, our style experts agree that white accessories are best. Choose beaded or lace shoes as well as satin heels for an elegant look. For another bolder option, consider pairing this dress with dark-colored shoes, such as blue or scarlet red.

The best hair accessory for your hair is the halo made with Swarovski stones. If you use a fascinator, be sure that it matches your shoes. How about a flower fascinator in blue or peacock fascinator in red?

Unlike the white variation, the Venetian Cream model can go with virtually every accessory of any style or color. We love beige for its versatility!

Colors including orange, violet, terracotta, beige, cream, nude, or turquoise match perfectly. Peacock fascinators with vivid or silky flowers will be absolutely breathtaking!

As for shoes, pair them by color as you would with the white variation of this dress. And for celebrity appeal, go for shoes in other color palettes.

Overall, you won’t need any additional accessories, such as shawls, shrugs, or stoles. Well, we could be wrong if you find a luxurious, cream-colored stole. The Venetian Cream will come out truly Gatsby in this case. The Venetian White can only be adorned with a snow-white stole.

If you wear a massive, Gatsby style cuff bracelet, you should avoid wearing large, art deco inspired necklaces. Remember, you want to show off the gorgeous  ornamentation.

And, yes, winter fairy brides, please avoid wearing capes with this dress, as you will hide its beauty. Rather, use this dress for summer, spring, or fall wedding occasions as well as indoor winter weddings. The dress is made to emphasize your natural beauty.

We hope you’ve found our stylist’s advice to be quite helpful. We’re sure you will find the right couture dress for the biggest day of your life!
