Vera Wang Bridal Spring 2016 Collection

From childhood days we have been entranced by the bridal pieces by Vera Wang. So when the time comes to pick up that perfect wedding dress that will have you shining bright as a diamond as you glide down that aisle and then sweep around the ballroom you hold your reception in, it makes quite a bit of sense to turn to your favourite designer since you were but a little girl, had discovered the Internet and dreamed of the perfect wedding. We remember those days well, merely in grade 10 or 11, sneaking onto the computers in the library and staring at breathtaking wedding dress after breathtaking wedding dress with our best friends, imagining our lives after marriage, how our children would play and we would be neighbours. While some of those dreams fade away in the light of the new day, others stick around for a long time to come.

It appears that with the latest Vera Wang bridal spring 2016 collection, her seductive line up is made for the bride to embrace her sensuality, feel comfortable in her skin and flaunt her assets while still appearing like the perfect bride at the altar. We saw soft mermaid shapes that came complete with full, hand pleated tulle skirts. This was essentially the predominant silhouette within the 15 pieces of the collection, showing off the height of the lady heading in to her nuptial ceremony, as well as encapsulating every inch of those legs that were clearly outlined in the body hugging elements used to create the dresses. Forget romance, Wang gave us more of the real deal, but has us wondering what one would do if she has a bit of meat on that body of hers.

While traditional weddings were meant to cover up the bride and keep her looking like the perfect demure wife, Vera Wang has turned that ideal all the way around by topping the pieces with Chantilly lace bodices and styling with corresponding lace bras and panties that were very much meant to show from underneath the dress itself. Furthermore, we should not be surprised to see other unorthodox additions to the wedding look by having touches of black appear here and there in the guise of exaggerated low belts, passementiere embroidery and satin-ribbon straps. For the ladies who want to go all-black instead on their wedding day, the final piece of the collection is a dark version with a strapless sweetheart neckline and a voluminous ostrich-feather skirt.

It was easy to tell that the main theme here was transparency, with some completely sheer looks that may be better suited to the boudoir over the aisle. We may not think of wearing these particular pieces to our own wedding day, but there are those who would look positively spectacular, especially after adding slips and underpinnings to make the looks appear a bit more on the decent side. This was definitely a push of the envelope when it comes to bridal gowns and it is always nice to see a change in style. We may find it a bit much for us, but will never stop loving everything Vera Wang.
