Gowns for Historic Venues

Wedding Dresses

Conde Nast Digital Studio

If you're marrying at a historic home, estate, or manor, take a cue from the romantic elegance of your venue and wear a gown that's reminiscent of a bygone era. We're thinking of gowns in feminine lace with ladylike cap sleeves or dainty jackets—looks that are more dignified that overly glamorous. Here are our favorite picks from the runways. —Kim Forrest
