This wouldn't be the first time you're completely baffled as to what exactly you're supposed to wear to a beach wedding. Just the weather alone is a deciding factor for so many things—silk might stain against sweat, stilettos are so going to sink into the sand, and any fabric too heavy is set to give you a heat stroke.

She's totally serious, by the way. The dress she wore to fashion designer Vania Romoff's wedding—incidentally also created by Vania herself!—is giving us every reason to sport a bikini at any fete. Draped in spotted tulle and ruffled daintily in all the right places, it's a frothy, dreamy blend of Gothic modesty and summer's skimpiest.
