White by Vera Wang Spring 2012 Bridal Lookbook

Get your pinning fingers ready: Here are the new wedding gown styles from the White by Vera Wang Spring 2012 Collection. The collection takes inspiration from the delicate form of flowers and their feminine appeal, and includes strapless gowns in taffeta and gazaar with asymmetrically draped bodices in soft hues of white, ivory and blush. The collection also includes contemporary looks styled with clean, simple details in updated mermaid and A-line silhouettes and sweetheart, strapless and asymmetrical necklines.

It's hard to pick a favorite, and you really have to try these on to see which looks best on your body (speaking from experience, hehe) but I really love the blush pink ballgown above and the strapless gown with the big grosgain bow (below). So romantic.

As some of you may know, I wore White by Vera Wang for my September wedding and I couldn't have been happier with my decision. It was truly the perfect dress for the best day of my life. I know I've been promising to share wedding photos forever now (still haven't picked my wedding album photos lol) but you may click on over to my photographer's blog Roya Jade (she's amazing) to see a few highlights.

White by Vera Wang's Spring 2012 wedding gowns are priced between $500 - $1,500. To view the entire collection, including shoes, veils, sashes, bridesmaid dresses and accessories, visit

Beautiful wedding photos! Was your veil from the Vera collection at David's Bridal as well?

Thank you - and yes! I ended up buying my veil, beaded sash and hair ornament from the White by Vera Wang collection - I just fell in love with how the whole look came together. Highly recommend checking out their accessories even if you're not looking for a dress.

Your wedding photos are so, so lovely, and your dress is divine!

And I totally agree about trying on the gowns. For my own wedding, I thought I wanted a flowy, beachy dress ... until I tried a few on. They made me look like I was trying to hide a baby bump -- definitely not something you want your guests to be wondering on the big day!

Haha I love it! I originally thought I wanted a simple, Grecian style gown with a very small veil or just a headpiece....but the moment I saw my dress in person, and then tried it on, I knew that was the "one"!

And thank you :-)

Can someone please tell me the name/style# of the dress with the model holding the pink flowers? Thanks!

Absolutely stunning! Vera knows how to do a wedding dress!

The dresses are beautiful...but it concerns me that the model looks 14.

Exactly what I was thinking!

Beautiful collection and do not ask me why but some how I got a little emotional. Thanks for sharing!

I love your dress! Very pretty and unique! This post is kind of ironic because I posted about clothing store wedding dresses (Bebe, J Crew, etc) Wednesday.
