The Gemma has been my dream wedding dress forever and I finally tried it on yesterday!
I am sure it’s the one but my wedding isn’t for a while! 


Just thought I’d share 🙂

I wasn’t able to afford the gemma VW dress so I had it custom made and I loved it! Here’s a picture from my wedding.

@whimsicarol: I’ve been loving the Gemma dress but have also been wanting a colored dress (Blush possibly red) and here is the Gemma in Red! I love it! Did you try this on at the LA Flagship on Melrose? If so, I’ll be making an appt asap.

Hi Bees, need your urgent help! Anyone of you who has a Gemma with you physically- could u kindly help me to take a picture of the cleaning label and post it here. My damaged Gemma is with the restoration house and I m going to court to with the evil drycleaner in a couple of hours. I need to be able to show the judge that the cleaner has not followed cleaning instructions and damaged the dress. THANKS HEAPS!

Hi Gemma lovers ,


I have been trying on different Vera’s , I’m torn in between the holly, the lark and Gemma 

my main concern about the Gemma is that the ruching on the bodice may add bulk . Any bride out there feels the same way ? Or does it have slimming effect instead ?

Thought I’d post here since I haven’t been on much since the wedding. I had purchased my Gemma pre-owned and after a close call with alterations (picked up the dress 2 days before the wedding!), I can’t be happier with how everything turned out. I felt like a freakin rockstar in the dress!



I’m selling it now but I’ve also considered dying it red or black for some formal events. Anyone ever dyed a Gemma or is that sacrilege?

i was wondering if everyone had their gemmas altered at the vera stores?  did anyone use an outside seamstress?  any nyc recommendations? thanks!
