My Advice

Vera WangTraditionally, brides carried chaffs of wheat to invoke fertility and celebrate the joy of marriage. Today, the bridal bouquet still symbolizes beauty and the ritual of wedding. A traditional bouquet will always complement the gown – avoid excessive ribbons, ties, doilies or the like which will undermine (or overwhelm) your carefully chosen wedding dress.

The bouquet can serve as a noteworthy accessory; make it extraordinary through choice of flowers and unusual color, not unnecessary frills. I love deep orange, black-red or purple against a traditional white wedding gown. Finally, remember to taper the stems and keep the tips visible otherwise the bouquet looks unnatural and too heavy for the delicate look of the bride. - XO, Vera

Vera Wang Real Wedding France

College sweethearts, Hélène and Christopher, decided to get married near the bride's home in France. After searching across continents for her wedding gown, she selected a Vera Wang tulle ball gown, made famous by Kate Hudson in the romantic comedy Bride Wars. The couple chose a soft palette of pastels to complement both her dreamy gown and the lush florals in the estate's gardens. Take a look at their romantic wedding at Vera Unveiled.
