My Advice

Vera WangI have noted over the years that the choice of music for the wedding ceremony is often one of the last considerations. The ceremony music is, in fact, critical as it affects everything else. I recommend separating the music into three parts:  the processional should reflect music that is personal to the couple and draws out the emotions of the guests; the music during the ceremony itself should capture the dramatic moments of the service; and the music during the recessional should celebrate joy and happiness. When it comes to music, the possibilities are endless, so don’t feel tied to classical music alone! — XO, Vera

The bodice begins with a foundation of Chantilly lace, the same classic lace that's featured elsewhere in the collection, and then it's covered with a layer of embroidery work: a complicated but very soft, very subtle design in pearl and crystal. It shimmers and gleams in that setting of lace, and this pattern works its way across the bust on a diagonal path, for a touch of asymmetry.

We call this cluster embroidery: it's made up of little groupings of crystal and bead elements that present themselves as spangles and little starbursts, rather than in a neat arrangement. It's another bit of complexity, within the orderly surface of the bodice...READ MORE
