We always recommend brides wait until they’ve locked down a venue to start shopping for a dress—it’s easier to picture what you’ll like on your wedding day, and you have a better idea of what type of style you may prefer to match the feel of your venue. For brides who aren’t sure where to start when looking for a dress to match their venue, we’re sharing a few of our favorite dresses to pair with popular venue types to inspire you in your wedding dress search.
A blend of traditional and modern, the ballroom wedding has an elegant, chic vibe we love. To match the classy look of your venue, we think sleek, modern dresses pair perfectly—with this gorgeous Allure fit and flare being an excellent example. A classic silhouette with stunning sleeves and a low v-neck, this gown is figure flattering, timeless, and perfect for the modern classic look of a ball room.
When surrounded by gorgeous artwork, you want to wear something just as unique that keeps all eyes on you without detracting from the art. It’s a hard line to toe, so we think keeping things sleek and simple with bold, statement-making details is perfect. This Maggie Sottero dress strikes the note perfectly: a chic, strapless fit and flare with a unique, oversized bow detail on the back to give it the perfect timeless yet truly one-of-a-kind look.
Mountain Top Elopement
The breathtaking scenery of a mountain wedding calls for an equally jaw-dropping dress that fits in beautifully with the natural surroundings. For this type of wedding, we love a little bit of boho flare on a dress to really give it that perfect outdoorsy-yet-elegant feel. A simple sheath with a breathtaking lace train, this Maggie Sottero dress gives you everything you’re looking for with a mountain wedding. The sheer lace adds a nature-inspired elegance, while the effortless shape keeps you looking laid-back yet beautiful.
For backyard weddings, we love the look of something boho—something about floral-inspired lace and laid-back yet dramatic gowns goes perfectly with a wedding at home. A perfect choice for your backyard, this Morilee gown is covered in vine-like lace that climbs up the skirt and into the bodice, eventually creating the off-the-shoulder straps. A classic A-line with a modern, plunging neckline, this dress has just enough drama to really stand out without feeling out of place at your wedding.
