Style Tip: Remember the more movement your dress has, whether it be in fabric or detail, the more you want your shoe and accessories to be simplified so the look of the ensemble is not overwhelming to the eye.

Choosing a vintage styled dress in traditional wedding fabric like chiffon, silk duponi, or linen is beautiful! If you love vintage and still want to keep it trendy, try adding a contemporary heel to give the look a little more edge. We love the eyelet detail in this vintage dress!

For another look, keep the shoes in a muted complimentary color and introduce the bright “Pop” of color in the bridesmaid bouquet. Using a traditional dress and shoe style, and adding a contemporary bouquets brings the look forward and on trend. Style Tip: Remember to coordinate the “pop” so the ensemble does not appear to look too “busy”.
