My Advice

Vera WangDo you want to add a touch of adventure to a classic wedding look?

Your bridal bouquet can be transformed into a striking accessory without detracting from the tradition or symbolism. Try weaving pieces of fabric from your wedding dress into the flowers or choose an unexpected color to offset the neutral tones of your gown. (We recommend a black-red or deep purple stem as we love the theatricality of these colors.) Channeling your adventurous or theatrical side in this way is a modern approach to a classic element of a bride’s ensemble.— XO, Vera
