I think something in a deep color, like burgundy, would be lovely. Definitely go for something classic and elegant – think long and red carpet worthy. A floor length, spaghetti strap dress with a plunging v-neckline is the image I got in my head when I read your theme.

i don’t know what your budget is like but if you want to take a look at bhldn- they have metallic/mint green lace gown called Ophelia lace gown (see link-http://www.bhldn.com/shop%5Fbridesmaids%2Dparty%2Dgoers%5Fbridesmaid%2Dparty%2Ddresses/ophelia%2Ddress
The price is $650 but you can use it as inspiration and try to find something similar but less pricey. Also, think Romeo and Juliet and you could even make a lace mask for yourself (buy lace and some feathers to glue to a costume mask- you can do this for prob $7.00 and add a new twist to a simple dress.

when I think about Venice, what comes to mind are their intricately designed masks and masquerade balls or carnival balls, and full gowns.

If you want something shorter, you can opt for one of these dresses:
