Not sure how to handle the bridesmaids dresses? Practically speaking, the bride’s attendants will vary in shape and size so choose a common thread to capture the element of pageantry that their role brings to the celebration. I recommend a uniform color or fabric in different silhouettes to flatter each figure and maintain individuality.
Another approach is to ask each attendant to select her own gown (perhaps in a certain color range) to be as inclusive as possible, and will create a connection through a finishing touch such as jewelry, hair or make-up. If color is your connector, remember that pale colors work best for summer weddings and dark colors for winter celebrations. - XO, Vera
Vera's Design Philosophy
What started as a collection of bridal gowns has expanded to include ready-to-wear, foortwear, eyewear, fragrances and bedding. Through each of Vera Wang's collections she maintains a consistent vision and aesthetic throughout her design process. In this video Vera explains her design philosophy and how she wants to encourage women to explore their femininity through fashion. Watch it here.
Heather and Michael planned a beautiful destination wedding in Sorrento. Taking inspiration from the surrounding lemon trees, the couple decided to craft all of their wedding details, including a number of lemon-themed items, and the morning of the wedding the bridal party DIY’ed every one of them. In addition to lemon yellow, the bride also incorporated bright green into the wedding’s color palette. To see their beautiful wedding, visit Style Me Pretty.
