VINEYARD The rustic atmosphere of a vineyard wedding -- think Bedell Cellars in Cutchogue or Wolffer Estate Vineyard in Sagaponack -- lends itself to a gown with a romantic feeling. "Typically brides marrying in this setting are fond of beautiful lace, perhaps Chantilly or Alencon, that softly hug the body in a sheath or even in an A-line or fit-and-flare silhouette," says Hall. Pictured, Jenny Packham bridal collection. A vintage-inspired chiffon sheath is adorned with ornate crystal straps, $3,465. At Gabriella New York Bridal Salon, 212-206-1915, gabriellanewyork.com.
