Vera Wang’s Madison Avenue salon hosted an event for bridal bloggers this evening to allow us to view the new collection, which won’t hit salons until the fall. The designs shown at April’s bridal market will be available in trunk show style at various salons around the country --- NYC this weekend, then Boston, DC, LA over Labor Day Weekend. Check with the local salon that carries Vera Wang to find out when the trunk show will be in your area. There is also a listing on verawang.com.
Anyway, we got a tour of the salon, enjoyed some delicious red velvet cake by Ruth Drennan and saw the new line up close and personal. It’s stunning by the way.
Some of the designs are shown in colors -- gray, celadon green, blush or pink -- and it’s important to note that while the gowns are shown in colors they are all available in white or ivory too.
When you visit a salon make sure to ask the sales consultant what all your options are. The dress may be available in multiple colors, the sashes that adorn the dress may also come in a rainbow of colors. You may be able to build up the dress giving it a higher neckline or even sleeves if you need more coverage.
Sometimes these alterations will add to the price and sometimes they won’t. It’s important to find out what’s available so you purchase a dress you truly love.
