Vera Wang Spring 2019 Bridal

It’s currently bridal market in NYC and one of the very first seasons I’ve missed in the last 5 years 😥. Family vacay in Disney happened last week, so I was busy park hopping with a confused-exhausted-irritable-but-oh-so-adorable one-year-old. But I’ve been doing my fair share of Insta stalking and crushing on all of the new fashions that will soon be available to all you newly-engaged ladies out there.

And Vera Wang, well, she and her team absolutely kiiiiiillllled it for the Spring 2019 season. I’ll leave you to your own thoughts on the collection - but we’re blown away. Not necessarily anything I’d wear down the aisle, but that’s because I’m a little more basic than brazen.

All you need to know is that the 12-piece range kind of makes you forget that white was ever really a bridal mainstay. Yes, that’s right, WTF. Feast your 👀👀👀 on a whole lot of color, texture, dimension, and daring design, all inspired by “the artistry and enchantment of painterly gowns in the Flemish mode, with a nod to Diaghilev’s “Ballets Russes.”

Not exactly well-versed in this kind of aesthetic? Well here are some highlights from Vera’s S19 hit list
  • Romanticism with endless edge (something that we’ve been hoping Meghan Markle hones in on for 5.19) 
  • Classic silhouettes like ball gowns to corseted confections reimagined (consider split away backs and multi-layered, hand-wrinkled crinkle tulle skirts)
  • Lots of movement and texture
  • Oversized, avant-garde 3D floral motifs
  • Colors like blush, cardinal, forest green, fuchsia, goldenrod, lavender mixed with foundations of nude

We’ll start with my favorite (for obvious reasons - see ‘basic’ reference☝). The VERA Blush and nude strapless silk ball gown with a multi- layered crinkle tulle skirt, accented by a hand draped tulle overlay and bougainvillea colored faille flowers.
