As a bride-to-be I’ve been scouring the pages of the interweb searching for pretty bridesmaids dresses and wedding gowns. I just noticed today that there is a fresh batch of White by Vera Wang gowns and bridesmaids dresses, just in time for the holidays. There are both new bridesmaids dresses and wedding gowns. They are so pretty! Now is a great time to be looking for your wedding gown and bm dresses because all the designers are releasing their spring lines and discounting their older collections.
White By Vera Wang Wedding gowns
I’ve tried on a number of the dresses in the White line and they are a fun looks at great prices. Most of them have a very couture look to them while staying soft and romantic, very Vera Wang-esque.
Ombre Tulle Ball Gown with Pick Up Skirt
By far my favourite of the new collection. Beautiful colour, soft yet dramatic. The sheer straps are ever so romantic and it features the Vera Wang messy-yet-awesome tossed tulle skirt. The ombre is gorgeous too! Offered in ballet (this pink), stone and ivory.
Crinkle Chiffon Fit and Flare with Skirt Flanges
Vera’s dresses are very architectural with great line details, and this is no different. Elegant and modern, I bet this would be very flattering on a tall figure! Offered in charcoal, ivory and champagne.
Strapless Tulle and Organza Fit and Flare Gown
This fit and flare gown features a dropped waist, tossed tulle skirt and lace applique on the bodice. A bit of fun with a touch of elegance. I can totally see myself wearing this one. Offered only in classic ivory.
White By Vera Wang Bridesmaids dresses
For their bridesmaids dresses, it’s too bad the colours are the same muted palette as the last collection but the look is definitely very Vera – very couture and chic! Perfect if you are going for a modern lux feel for your wedding. I personally love brighter deeper colours, so the palette offered isn’t really to my liking, but it can definitely work for a lot of brides out there.
One word of caution – I know from experience, they fit pretty differently in person than it does on the tall lanky models that are portrayed on the website, so make sure to have your ladies try them on in person if you are interested in them! They are made for tall girls and don’t always fit true to size.
Here are some of my favourites from the collection:
The dresses will be arriving in the next few weeks to Canadian stores, so hold on tight. Happy shopping and browsing!
