your wedding dress dreams start here

A few weeks ago, a store full of brides and I were lucky enough to join Vera Wang at the new David’s Bridal flagship in New York City. The godmother of the modern wedding dress (see one of her new looks at right) shared her wisdom about what is most important in choosing your bridal look—and that is being true to your own style. Wang has designed for everyone from Grammy winner Alicia Keyes to fashion icon Victoria Beckham, and she has empowered countless other brides to dream big.

She’s rushing us down a steep staircase into an alleyway on Commercial Street in Bangalore, India, that’s overflowing with seamstresses sitting cross-legged on the floor, painstakingly embroidering jewels onto sari blouses. We need to catch the tailor to give him my measurements for a maroon blouse I’ll need for one of many wedding functions. When we discover he hasn’t returned, my aunt tells me to flip through the bangles—there’s not a moment to waste. She’ll corner him when he arrives, all but demanding he do a rush order so I can have a fitting a day and a half later, before I…
