Dresses That Inspire: Pretty as a Picture

Martha Stewart Weddings, Fall 2001

A sublime stand-up ruff of delicate antique lace frames the bride's face. Below are layers of silk, taffeta, and ribbon-edged tulle. An A-line skirt extends from a string of seed pearls sewn into the waist. The bouquet is stock and garden roses.

Below, this snow-white silk A-line mikado gown befits a princess. Appliques of rhinestones, crystals, and silver beads trim the three-quarter-length raglan sleeves and the dropped waist. The bride holds a nosegay of viburnum and ipheion. Her satin wrist-length gloves and nineteenth-century diamond-pendant earrings are perfectly ladylike.
