Ooh...see what I found in my mailbox - Q&A with Vera Wang Issue 01 (received on 10/22/09)

How do I make all my bridesmaids happy with my choice of a bridesmaids' dress?
It is customary for the bridal party to take the cue from the bride when it comes to wedding fashion. However, most brides these days are sensitive to the sense of tastes, sizes, shapes, and incomes of her attendants.
If you are finding it challenging to find a singular bridesmaid dress that suits your entire wedding party, then consider creating a common thread: Pick the color and let each attendant select a style in that color that most flatters her shape. You can also let each bridesmaid choose her own dress and create conformity through accessories, hairdo, and make-up. That said, different bridesmaids' dresses respect individuality but can also be distracting.
You are the bride, and while you should be as accommodating as possible to your bridal party, they should ultimately respect your overall vision for your wedding day including your choice of a bridesmaid dress.

I personally LOVE almost all dresses from Vera Wang Collections. Her new Fall 2010 Collection is a must-see, great job! (We will have more on Vera Wang's wedding dresses here in Yours Moment soon, stay tune.)
