Vera Wang Wedding Dresses

When a bride is getting ready to be wed and begins that illusive search for the perfect wedding gown, one of the first designers that come to mind is Vera Wang wedding dresses.  Who exactly is Vera Wang and why has her name become synonymous with wedding gowns?

Vera Wang was born in 1949 to affluent Chinese immigrants.  She lived a luxurious life in Manhattan’s Upper East Side where she attended private schools and studied at the School of American Ballet.  Wang was a very talented figure skater and competed professionally throughout her teens and even placed fifth in the U.S. National Championships.  When Wang graduated from college, she went to work at Vogue and was already a Senior Fashion Editor by the age of 23.  After 15 years at Vogue, she went to work for Ralph Lauren.

When she was 40 years old, Wang finally decided to marry her long-time love.   As all brides do, she went in search of the perfect wedding gown.  She was so frustrated by the lack of bridal gowns that she sketched out her own gown and commissioned a tailor to sew it for her.  The cost for this elegant gown was $10,000.

With seed money from Wang’s Father, she opened her first bridal boutique in the upscale Carlyle Hotel on Madison Avenue in New York.  Her gowns are now sold in very upscale retailers such as Saks Fifth Avenue and Neiman Marcus and are worn by celebrities such as Anjelica Huston, Meg Ryan, Jennifer Lopez, and Goldie Hawn.  Vera Wang is now the most prominent bridal gown designer in America and has been honored with a large number of awards for her achievements such as the 2005 Womanswear Designer of the Year.

While Vera Wang wedding dresses are the envy of all brides to be, most cannot afford the huge price tag of her premium designer dresses.  But what if there was a way to walk down the aisle with a Vera Wang dress on and only pay a fraction of the cost?  This newly discovered discount wedding gown opportunity is now becoming popular.  This is how it works:  Major retail bridal stores allow brides to try on wedding gowns called “sample gowns”.  Once the choice of the gown is made, the bride places her order for a new gown in the correct size and the one she tried on goes back on the floor.  This process continues until the gown is discontinued, the store needs room for new inventory, or they have stopped carrying that collection all together.  What happens to the gowns that are no longer needed?  Bride Couture purchases these gowns and then sells them to brides at 50% to 80% off their original price.  Imagine walking in and trying on a ten thousand dollar gown for a fraction of the cost?  Better yet, why not have Bride Couture send you three or four gowns to try on.  Keep the one you love and return the others.  You can try on the gowns in the comfort of your own home and have whomever you want there to give you reviews.

Vera Wang uses the tradition of Paris Couture when she designs a dress.  Her style is more focused on using gorgeous fabrics and unique construction rather than heavy beading or embroidery.  Her gowns are very romantic, whimsical and high fashion while still remaining timeless.  This is your day to be the center of attention.  Why not feel and look like one in a Vera Wang wedding dress
