A bit of superstition adds to the adventure of marriage. For your something old, something new or something borrowed - look to your handbag. Your handbag should never be an afterthought; in fact, it is one of the most difficult accessories to coordinate with your wedding gown. Without exception, your wedding handbag should be small, elegant and understated. To make an important connection between past and future, consider a vintage handbag from one of your older relatives or invest in a new piece that will become an heirloom when you pass it on.
For your something blue, consider a hidden touch such as a blue ribbon sewn into your petticoat. -XO, Vera
Jaclyn had hopes of designing her own wedding dress, but after popping into the Vera Wang bridal salon in Toronto she fell in love with a few of Vera’s latest collecti. When she couldn’t choose between the blush-colored Hayley and Josephine in black, she brought her fiancé in to help make the final decision. They decided on the elegant black gown and together they accessorized Jaclyn’s wedding-day look with a white veil with black lace appliques, black wedding bands and bracelets with spikes. See Jaclyn’s fashion-forward look at Vera Unveiled.
