Vera Wang Winter 2019 For Lookbook Friday

We are in the most magical of months celebrating the holiday season with visions of sugar plums and snow queen fairies dancing in our heads. Hardly wedding season winter weddings are becoming more popular. New York like many parts of the United States suffers from high humidity in the summer months and spring is often rainy. So it is no surprise that many people opt to hold their weddings in the cooler months.

But there was one designer who always pushed the envelope when it came to bridal gowns

I worked in the bridal industry for years and I was not a fan of strapless. It was the bane of my existence when I worked in the industry and it reigned supreme for decades. But there was one designer who always pushed the envelope when it came to bridal gowns—Vera Wang who always took it the next level.

[pullquote align=”left” style=”style2″ width=”181″ size=”16″ line_height=”22″ bg_color=”#222222″ txt_color=”#ffffff”]a wedding gown should invoke a magical feeling or have the air of a black tie event[/pullquote]

For me there is something about strapless that is kind of low brow, it makes me think of snapping your tube top at the beach or stepping out of the shower with a towel on, but it never appealed to me in any genre. I also think it draws attention to a somewhat unattractive area of the body—under the arms. Even in thin people this area can look kind of dumpy. Not a fan. To me a wedding gown should invoke a magical feeling or have the air of a black tie event and in my opinion strapless does not invoke sophistication. And when it comes to ethereal magical gowns

[bigletter]no one does it better then Vera Wang. One would think that there is only so much you can do when it comes to a white wedding dress but you would be surprised, the options are limitless really and who says it always has to be white. If your a big fan of tulle when it comes to wedding dresses you will find plenty of it in Vera’s latest collection. Hunter Schafer is the face of the campaign and with her “Euphoria” characters offbeat style she is the perfect choice. With dramatic neck pieces, layers of tulle, exquisite lace treatments and its fairy tale silhouettes the collection for Winter 2019 is expectedly breath taking. A romantic ethereal fete of all that is feminine and enchanted.[/bigletter]


  1. Winter weddings are magical in itself, I’ve only been to a few winter weddings but they were absolutey beautiful. This is quite a striking collection, I like the delicate celestial aesthetic. <3

  2. What an absolutely dreamy and ethereal collection! It’s really admirable how Vera Wang still keeps things fresh after so many years in the business. OMG I’m so glad you said what you said about strapless wedding gowns. I find them to be super basic and cannot stand them. When I got married and was looking for a dress, the one thing I knew I didn’t want was strapless. My gown had cap sleeves. Had so much fun with you yesterday! Let’s do it again soon!

  3. I love Vera Wang dresses she sure know how to embrace classy, elegance, feminine chic with grace.

  4. These gauzy materials are so dreamy!
    Happy Holidays! xo Annie

  5. The holidays is such a magical time – I wish it was year-round but people would probably get tired of it. I realized that people don’t really get married during the wintertime. I love these dresses- especially with the usage of the layering material. Vera does a great job with the designs! Thanks for sharing these picks from the collection :).

  7. Vera Wang is the Queen of wedding gowns and I am with you about strapless. I love the high neck dresses, they are so sophisticated and timeless.

  8. These are all gorgeous!

    Effortlessly Sophisticated

  9. So magnificent and very detail!

  10. I wish I had these options when I got married. They are truly spectacular and not to mention dreamy. Who wouldn’t want a little more tulle or lace in their wedding?! Vera Wang knows how make a once in a lifetime moment truly magical.

  11. I am surprised by this collection, it is bold and innovative. I honestly admit that I prefer more classic versions.

  12. Talk about magical! I adore how completely unexpected some of these designs are, particularly those that feature more unusual layering. The best way to describe this would be: ethereal. Wow, stunning! Thanks for sharing Allie!!

  14. These dresses are absolutely stunning! Although they’re styled in a very royal way, I can totally imagine them worn while enjoying beautiful day by the sea <3


  15. Beautiful. I love it.

  16. Hunter is so beautiful.

  17. piece of art! *_*

  18. What a lovely, magical collection! I agree, strapless wedding gowns are way too basic.

  19. Vera’s wedding dresses always look so elegant and timeless. This particular collection looks absolutely magical. I love the heavy use of tulle, makes this creations so romantic. I also like that she’s not sticking to white.

    I have to say that I’m not the greatest fan of the strapless wedding dress design either, especially the straight cute strapless one, it only looks good on extremely thin and slender women. It is definitely hard to dance in a strapless dress, so I always wondered how do brides manage to. It would made me nervous to dance in such a dress.

  20. Ugh Vera Wang is so fabulous! Such beautiful gowns.

  21. These are just all so beautiful, Allie! Thank you for sharing. I had a typical summer wedding, but man, if we ever renew our vows, I wouldn’t mind a winter one just so that I can wear something similar to these dresses. Vera really does such an amazing job, and Hunter is just perfect wearing these gowns.

  22. Such amazing photos and beautiful dresses!
    Hard to choose a favourite one 🙂
    Wishing you all the best and lost of love,

  23. Hi! Wonderful ideas, Thanks for sharing.
    I hope you´ll visit my blog soon. Have a nice day!

  24. A little lace here and a lot of tulle there – it all makes for a truly magical combo if you ask me! I have always said that if I were ever to get married, it would be in the winter. There is so much to love about this season and that includes wedding dresses. Thanks for sharing – https://jamilakyari.com/take-the-blog-reader-survey-2019/

  25. Magical dresse, thanks for sharing
    Have a nice day!

  26. Are you ready for holidays?! I see that you’re in the mood for festive dresses since you shared this and also the Red Valentino post 🙂

    I didn’t know you were in the bridal industry! You definitely have a good eye to pick the best dresses when it comes to festive seasons, actually this industry is huge in Barcelona, there are many bridal dresses designers here.

    I love how Vera Wong is always adding a different and magical touch to the typical wedding dress, there is something special, unique and very delicate in every design that take us to a fairytale scenario!

  27. I also think that strapless dresses look funny and are not attractive at all. Almost all my friends wore a strapless dress at their wedding that was of the most perfect white. I also belive that a beautiful and fancy wedding dress doesn’t have to be necessarly white, there are so many elegant colors like the ones we can see here perfect for a wedding dress. I also love the creations of Vera Wang, so elegant, classy and sophisticated but yet simple too.

  28. All of these dresses are stunning! They all give that dreamy vibe that would make anyone wearing them feel incredible. It’s nice to see someone do something completely different from the standard white wedding dress!
