Now, this style may not be what every bride thinks of when imagining her wedding dress, but I love how the shot of color comes from the cleverly placed green fern motifs. The emerald sash with the big bow in the back is pure elegance.
I could really see this dress being worn for a winter wedding and topped with a cute white vintage fur stole.
And if it’s a winter wedding, why not have your jewelry be all white – in the form of diamonds and platinum and white gold, of course.
One of my favorite pieces of jewelry at Doyle & Doyle – this Diamond Bow Necklace – would be a sweet and simple complement to the dress’ higher neckline.

I found this little organdy and silk number on Antique & Vintage Dress Gallery.
I love the lattice work of the sleeves and the little spray of flowers hanging from the ecru satin waistband. This dress would be perfect for an outdoor, spring wedding – perhaps somewhere near the mountains?
Since the neck of the dress is quite plain, I would recommend adding something shiny to make the neckline pop – this simple Star Set Diamond Locket would do just fine:
Nothing too crazy on the earring front – you’ll probably want to wear your hair down and free to reflect the Joie de Vivre feel of this dress. A nice set of Emerald and Diamond Stud Earrings give both a hint of color, and of fun.
This Embossed Ball and Link Bracelet reminds me of the fairy tale of the princess, the frog and the golden ball. The princess loses her golden ball, a frog retrieves it for her, they end up kissing, and he turns into a handsome prince. It’s also a great finishing touch to an already charming vintage wedding ensemble.
