NOTE: I wrote a suuuuper long post and it got erased, so here’s a shortened version. Also, I’m not posting pics/ stlye # just yet as I don’t want people I know to see which one I’m wearing on my BIG day!
So, I’ve been smitten for the past day-and-a-half…. and it’s all because of the White by VW dress I’ll be wearing for my wedding day! Overall, the dreasses a beautiful, and there’s 3 I loved. The rest were okay, but the ones I liked I liked better than ANYTHING else in the store (and, believe me, I tried on a LOT of DB dresses).
I read some posts about the fabric choices and finishing being a little sub-par for Vera, and to some extent I agree. However, the reason you’re paying more for her dresses (besides the name) is for the design, NOT the fabric choice. After all, it IS still a David’s Bridal dress. If you’re looking for top-notch fabric, then go to Kleinfeld’s. These dresses were, overall, a notch above DB’s… in my opinion. I actually purchased an Oleg Cassini dress ON SALE and DB veil, and exchanged them for my VW dress, and I only paid $350 more. Not bad AT ALL. My White by VW dress feels more comfortable on.
The White collection doesn’t have a lot of sparkle and glitz, so don’t even bother with it if that’s what you’re looking for. Also, if you already have a dress that you can’t return/ exchange, and you can’t afford a new dress, then DON’T go try these on…. you’ll most likely fall in love with ONE of them like I did, and then be frustrated!
Happy Wedding Dress Shopping!!! Isn’t it so much fun!?!?

Oops, I left out the VW veil… I exchanged my DB dress and veil for a BD VW dress AND veil and paid $350 more.

You girls are so cute! Thank you for being so excited for me, I can’t WAIT to wear it!!!!! I’ll post pics, but I don’t like the pics we took on Friday, but I’ll post what I can.
OH, and one more thing, I’m a street size 12-14, and the VW dresses zipped easily in a size 14 on me, and it needed to be taken-in in a couple of places. So, her dresses are ACTUALLY TRUE TO SIZE!!!!!!!!!!!!!! HOW REFRESHING!!!!!!!!!! The Oleg I bought zips perfectly in a size 16. 🙁

I also fell in love with this collection when I saw it on E! News!!! The first dress I tried on and bought it! I love how structured the top is and how flowing and free the bottom is…. I ended up not purchasing the horse hair bow pictured, but am going to go back and order it in black, just because!
