My Advice

Vera WangI always remind my brides to pay attention to what lies beneath. Your choice of undergarments is critical and should relate directly to the construction of your wedding dress as well as your body type. (A strapless bra does not work for a bride with a full chest, for example.)

Choose bras and slips that are seamless to create smooth lines under your gown, and be sure all straps are covered. I recommend packing an extra bra on your wedding day in case one gets misplaced. Also, choose a slip that is one size larger so it does not ride up under your gown. For lavish ball gowns, some brides add more volume by wearing a second petticoat underneath. Remember this will shorten the skirt of the gown, so additional fabric will be required for the hem. As this is your wedding day, consider white foundations instead of skin-colored to celebrate the mood of the occasion. -XO, Vera

Married in Paradise

Vera wang Real Wedding Mexico

After proposing on the beach while on vacation in Hawaii, Jocelyn and Michael decided to plan a weekend wedding to another tropical destination and said “I do” in Mexico. Keeping the ceremony and reception sophisticated and elegant, the bride decided on a neutral color palette so the details would blend in with the architecture and environment of the Esencia Seaside Estate, Xpu-Ha Beach in Riviera Maya. You can see their beautiful wedding photos at Vera Unveiled.
