The prices will probably drop after a while. I’ve been stalking this collection because I do love vera wang, What really excites me is that they are selling the accessories separate like the sashes, headbands and veils so brides who didnt buy a vera dress can still have a piece of vera in their wedding day outfit. Having said that, the vera accessories are a bit pricey and dont come in many colors yet… I still havnt bought my veil yet so i was looking at her veils but they just dont seem worth it

oOleg Cassini has very high quality fabrics, you can check it out on the website. I think that they are trying to appeal to the fashion centered bride with a smaller pocketbook thats why those fabrics aren’t as nice.

But the gowns do look lovely. Not lovely enough to sway my decision though lol.

 

good review.

My only problem is that EVERYONE will be wearing these dresses.

@Klb5882: That is so true, I didn’t think about that! Thanks for bringing it up, because I was starting to seriously reconsider my dress for one of these babies!

Do they run about the same price as Oleg Cassini (little over 1,000)? I already have a dress, I’m just really curious!

@jo.lee: If you look on the DB site, they state specific prices for each dress/accessory.

@Georgia Bee: Thanks for posting this.  I was worried about the fabric and overall quality, but I will be going in to see anyways.

I’m definitely going to check out the veils.  I want a cathedral length veil or no veil.  The fact that the White Vera Wang ones are prices under $250 is fantastic.

I’m also excited to see what their bridesmaids dresses look like.. 🙂

@Georgia Bee: Great review, thanks for posting. I’m not that surprised about the quality. My seamstress had told me when working on my Vera (which I later changed my mind on and sold) that most of her dresses are made in China now. When you take the expensive silk fabrics and French laces out of the equation too, all you’re left with is the name. DB had been doing her knockoff designs for years anyways so I don’t think adding the official Vera name will change much.

Still, if the prices really really come down I might buy one of the pink dresses one day to wear to an event. They look nice enough to wear to a formal occasion.

I tried on these two and loved them both!

I will most likely go with either one but can’t decide. 🙁
