If you’ve been hiding under a rock for the last six months then you probably haven’t heard that Vera Wang now has a collection at David’s Bridal stores across the country! Last September, Oprah showcased the collection, called “White,” before its debut in stores February 11th, 2011, with Vera Wang herself and a handful of models. This is a dream for budget conscious brides to be who have always dreamed of wearing a Vera Wang creation on their big day.
If you’ve been exploring online wedding dresses then I’m sure you’ve stumbled upon this gorgeous collection that is comparable to Vera’s couture gowns. “(I’m) totally committed,” Vera says. “It’s not ever only about a dress. It’s about the service; it’s about the knowledge and the help that David’s is able to provide brides.” Vera also says, “These dresses will be available to so many more brides than I’ve been able to ever reach before. So it’s a whole new world for us and bridal, with all the same aesthetics and design philosophy.”
The best part of this collaboration is the price! Gowns from the White collection will be available for $600 to $1400 in sizes 0-14. Vera announced that she would also offer a bridesmaid collection at David’s Bridal as well. Her bridesmaids dresses will range in price from $150 to $250.
If you haven’t found yourself perusing any particular online wedding store, then you’re probably wondering what styles and fabrics Vera’s White collection offers. The White collection is exemplified by hand cut details and countless fabrics such as satin faced organza, organza, taffeta, lace, tulle, crinkle chiffon, charmeuse and bobbin net. The colors are blush, ivory, soft white, and champagne.
Here are a few descriptions of my favorites from the White collection:
One dress in particular, a flare gown, was inspired by Chelsea Clinton’s wedding dress. This dress has a dropped waist and a flowing draped skirt. It includes a sash that is optional and sold separately.
The White collection also offers Ivanka Trump’s dress, which is a short-sleeved gown with the illusion of lace. It features a full A-line skirt made from satin-faced organza. What makes this dress so special is that it’s two dresses in one! The bodice is removable and transforms the dress into a strapless gown.
I’m a sucker for strapless gowns, so naturally the strapless taffeta gown is my favorite. It is comprised of taffeta and a soft netting that hugs a full ball gown skirt, with an asymmetrically draped bodice and sultry sweetheart neckline.
As if the bridal gowns and bridesmaid dresses aren’t enough, Vera is including accessories in the collection as well. Included are horsehair, floral, and crystal sashes, as well as embellished crystal headbands, crystal headpieces, crystal hair combs, and tulle veils.
If you’ve been searching for a dreamy online wedding dress, take a gander at the Vera Wang White Collection at David’s Bridal. There’s a good chance you may land on your dream dress.
