Picnic Dress

Style Notes

Drawing inspiration from 1950s Paris, this beautiful dress pairs French black lace and ice blue georgette silk with layers of tulle to create a stunning vintage silhouette. The sheer sleeves are edged with intricate eyelash lace trimming to frame your complexion. An invisible zip closure and velvet bow along the boat neckline complete this unforgettable look, leaving it the perfect dress to hire for an upcoming wedding!

Pair this gorgeous dress with a simple nude lip, and rent a little black clutch to really let that blue lace pop! For more wedding guest dress ideas, check out our 'What to Wear to a Black Tie Wedding' blog post for extra tips!

Belt: The 50's slim velvet belt features a slide buckle closure, and is the perfect accessory to emphasise those waspish waists. Add one to your rental for just $10.

Main Fabric: Nylon/Rayon/Spandex
