My Advice

vera wangLooking for a modern take on the bridal bouquet? There are noteworthy alternatives that, like a traditional bouquet, embody the beauty and the ritual of the wedding. I find a wrist corsage – small and graceful - to be a chic accessory as well as a practical alternative. A pinned corsage is elegant and incredibly flattering for a high-necked or off the shoulder gown (but pay careful attention to proportions here).

A bride may also carry a bible, psalm or prayer book with a sprig of her favorite flower fastened on or a precious object of sentimental value to commemorate this very personal moment. The processional is one of the most significant rites a woman will ever experience. - XO, Vera

Dress Diary: Kylie

Spring 2013 Vera WangKylie draws your eye in, no matter where you look. There’s a romantic, dreamy quality to every element, from the eloquent corsage of airy tissue organza and tulle flowers at the neck, to the gorgeous asymmetrical draping of the skirt that sweeps the floor like a fluffy, inverted bouquet. The way everything is laid over with tulle creates this beautiful collage effect, so that all these exuberant touches suddenly take on a more subtle quality.

Kylie is a mermaid gown, but not a traditional severe version, with a skirt falling very low on the knee. Instead, the skirt starts much higher, flowing from the bodice asymmetrically, and much more fluidly. A soft swirl of delicate, micro-draped French tulle is stretched over the body from bodice to skirt in a way that softens the shape, almost like a brushstroke. It’s still very body-conscious, and very sculpted, but with an ease to the silhouette. It’s that lightness and airiness that is always such an essential part of any bridal collection I design...READ MORE
