Designer Spotlight: Vera Wang

The name Vera Wang is almost always synonymous with wedding fashion. Many brides dream of wearing Vera for their big day. Kate Hudson, in the movie Bride Wars, even said that "you don't alter Vera to fit you, you alter yourself to fit Vera".

Here are some of Vera Wang's wedding dresses that caught my eye while looking through her website:

V-neck tissue organza ballgown with illusion corset bodice, and french tulle veiled metallic hand painting, with grosgrain sash at natural waist.

One-shoulder tissue taffeta full a-line gown with asymmetrically draped bubble skirt, lilly of the valley embroidery at bustline, and grosgrain sash at natural waist.
Strapless stretch mikado mermaid gown with draped bodice, swirling tissue organza flanges on skirt and grosgrain sash at waist.
One-shoulder silk crepe soft mermaid sheath with asymmetrically draped bodice, draped french tulle accents, and sheer nude corset back.
Illusion sweetheart soft a-line gown with multi-layered chantilly lace applique, sheer tulle elbow-length sleeve with floating lace, and horsehair sash at natural waist.
This bridal gown, a strapless full A-line gown with a pleated bodice, emphasis on the natural waist and a softly tucked hand painted skirt which, can be described as vivacious as well as uniquely flattering and easy to wear, could only be the work of Vera Wang. Available in Citrus Watercolor, Ivory or White.

  6. You know I love Vera Wang's gowns... I had a simple but gorgeous strapless one (her design) with a line of satin buttons all the way down the back. If I could do it again I would go for something with lace, I think... it's just so feminine and romantic!

  13. Oh my gosh - they're all beautiful. I cannot make a choise which one I would prefer ... The quote from Bride Wars is so fun. I LOVE this movie plus I will watch this movie with my best friend again tonight. :D We just can't get enough of this movie!!! :D

  22. I search everywhere for a Vera dress when I was looking for a wedding dress. I couldn't find any that I loved, and really wanted a one shoulder. Turns out my dress is strapless and nothing like a vera I dreamed of... should have just been patient I regret not getting vera :/


  23. A Vera is a Vera! You can't go wrong with it! However, I have a feeling, for my big day (sometime in the far off future, under the right circumstances) I won't be able to AFFORD a Vera =) My favorite of the ones you posted is the Evelyn. I tend to like a less poofy look for my frame. Some look GORGEOUS in layered poofs though!
