Suggestions for wedding stole?

One of my friends is getting married and I would like to send her a knitted gift. I suggested a wedding shawl, but she already has one, she doesn't have anything yet for the dress though that she is going to wear in the evening. I'm thinking about a stole.

That's the dress.

Since this is a simple dress with clear lines I think the stole should also not be too girly or frilly. As the dominant color in this dress is already red a white stole might match it nicely. She is from Tahiti and will get married in November, so I thought I could use mohair, as it's light and airy, yet warm. What do you think? And what pattern would you suggest? What do you think of the lead and follow lace scarf by Jackie Erickson-Schweitzer? And maybe instead of mohair I could use alpaca (I don't really like knitting with mohair and I'm not sure how well it would work with this pattern)? I have one skein in white from Alpaca with a twist.

Teehee, that's a true-lace pattern you're considering doing...but it doesn't look too bad.

I would have suggested (Ravelinks) Seascape (the one I'm knitting) or Eunny Jang's Print-o-the-Waves.

Still alive, honest... (And yes, I've not forgotten the meme you tagged me for, just being very slow about posting at all!)

I would stick with white, since I think it would probably be awkward to match the red of the dress - even a slight clash/mismatch would look a bit tacky IMO. Oh, and that's a lovely scarf pattern.

Yes, I'm knitting it in white, although the color is called cream. It looks quite white to me though and it should be fine. It's really tricky to find the right shade of a certain color if you only have a picture.
