Real Bride Mallory: Finding My Dream GownFebruary 25th, 2011
Mallory, one of the brides in the audience of our nationally televised talk show debut of the White by Vera Wang® collection, visits today to share the moment when she found her dream gown.
Finding My Dream Gown
The weekend of February 11th marked the launch of White by Vera Wang Collection at David’s Bridal, which meant it was finally time to try on the amazing dresses that I got to see debut live on The Oprah Winfrey Show! I brought 11 people with me to help me find my dream dress, including three of my bridesmaids and my flower girl. I think my family was more excited than I was!
The funny thing is that I started the day with a vision of the kind of dress I wanted, and I ended up choosing the complete opposite. I couldn’t believe that I fell in love with the first dress I tried on! White by Vera Wang Style VW351011 was THE one! It is fitted to mid-thigh with a dropped waist and has a hand-cut bias flange skirt that looks like dozens of ruffles cascading to the floor. I chose a rich lapis sash to match the color of my bridesmaids’ dresses. You can check out my bridal style in this video of me ringing the bell:
I would have been happy with any of the White by Vera Wang gowns; they were all different and amazing in their own way. In the end, I chose the one that not only I loved, but that all of my family and friends loved, too.
JoAnn, the consultant who worked with us was patient, friendly, and a huge help. It was a wonderful experience, and it makes me that much more excited for our wedding day!
