I'm a sucker for a sweetheart neckline and love that this Ines Di Santo wedding dress offers a sort of two-fer special—an illusion sweetheart plus a raised V-neck collar! I think brides are always looking to be both sexy and demure on their wedding day, and this gown nails it. The fit shows off a womanly figure; the cap sleeves are girly; the guipere lace and knee-length skirt epitomize sophistication. I see it paired with a tiny posy and a small cage veil at a restaurant wedding in the city—fun! Last, I'm never a fan of having to hunt down the perfect necklace to go with the dress. The minimalist in me believes that the dress should be able to stand on its own. In this case, it does.
