For designer wedding dresses, Vera Wang has officially launched her new retail wedding dress collection: White for David’s Bridal.
Here’s the skinny:
Vera’s wedding dress prices range from $528-$1,498. Not bad for a designer whose celebrity wedding dresses have graced the bodies of Chelsea Clinton, Victoria Beckham, LaLa Vasquez and more.
If you’re looking for more of a beach vibe, the light-weight designs make it easier to manage the warmth and look fabulous flowing in the breeze. Once you’ve snagged your gown, how do you get your wedding dress to your destination wedding easily and safely?
Tip 1: Do not check your wedding dress. Use a garment bag specifically designed for the shape of your wedding dress.
Tip 2: Inform the troops. Let your air carrier know ahead of time that one of your carry-on items will be a wedding gown. Your airline may be able to provide additional accommodations (and maybe an upgrade if you’re lucky!)
Tip 3: Check your dress for wrinkles as soon as possible. Talk to your on-resort wedding planner about options for removing wrinkles to ensure you are ready for the big day!
That’s it! Transporting a wedding dress is a fairly easy process as long as you consider your gown one of your carry-on items.
