My Advice

Vera WangDon’t be afraid to let your groom-to-be in on your idea of the perfect engagement ring. In today’s world, couples prefer to collaborate on the choice, and all aspects including size, shape, style, and price should be considered. (When it comes to budget, the “two months salary” benchmark is outdated to say the least.)  For brides-to-be, your ring should complement the size of your hand and tone of your skin, as well as the reality of your lifestyle, even if you do not plan to wear it every day. As you go through the process, never forget the essence of the engagement ring – above all, it is a symbol of love and a promise you are making to each other. -- XO, Vera

Dress Diary: Liesel

Vera Wang Spring 2014 LieselThis dress comes from a meeting of two worlds: there are elements of traditional bridal, in the grand, fairytale mold, and here this classicism encounters an original, modern perspective: the strapless, shoulder-baring sensuality, and the bold bodice, with its contemporary take on classical decorative bridal design. What's so interesting in this bodice, and you have it again with other pieces in the collection, is the fresh take on embroidery: a hallowed art form in the grand bridal tradition, and something we tend to associate with an Old-World, perhaps more elegant, or even stiff design. In Liesel, I've tried to...READ MORE
