i say anything classic, not over the top in details. simple satin, or lace dress would look great….. BUT its your wedding so you choose what dress you love. it doesnt matter if it fits your “theme” as long as you love it that is all that really matters.

My DH and I got married at a historic home in Atlanta GA. It was built in the 1920s and was originally the home of one of the co-founders of Coca-Cola. My wedding dress was the Alfred Angelo 2251 and I feel like it fit the location beautifully.

I am having mine at a venue like this and chose to go ivory and champagne with lace, beading, and chiffon. 

Again, excuse my face. I got stabbed in the eye with tulle and had a horrible migraine.

I think that the lace/traditional look goes well with the venue.  Hope this helps!
