Brides, just because you don’t want to be outshone by your bridesmaids doesn’t mean they need to wear unshapely, ghastly-coloured prom dresses that won’t flatter any girl no matter how fit or pretty she is. They are part of your bridal party and they’ll be in many of your photos, which are yours to keep for life (hopefully!). If they look bad because of your doing, people will talk…behind your back. So how do you present yourself as the gracious bride? Let them wear Vera!
Back in April, I mentioned that Vera Wang had debuted her budget bridal collection, White by Vera Wang which was only available at David’s Bridal. Now, she’s branched into bridesmaids’ gowns and bridal accessories. I am jealous already. Whoever gets to wear the gown is one lucky bridesmaid. What’s even better is that the dresses are affordable (USD158-USD198, around HKD1,230 – HKD1,550), stylish and comes in varying sizes (0 up to a whopping 26! This is America we’re talking about). The only downside is that the collection is only available in the U.S. but who says you can’t make a trip there.
Oh be nice to your bridesmaids. Afterall, they’re your nearest and dearest (that’s why you chose them right?!). Tip: they may even volunteer to help with everything since you’re making them look pretty in Vera and if they don’t, you still have time to reshuffle your team. Trust me, they’ll be more than happy to return the favour.
p.s. After my own wedding in the UK, one of my lucky bridesmaids ran into none other than Vera herself in Selfridges, London. GASP. I was told she was extremely friendly, classy and even posed for a photo.
