Wedding Dresses by Vera Wang Spring Collection 2012

Wow is all I can say regarding the new Vera Wang Spring Collection for 2012. In fact, I really do think I have died and gone to wedding dress heaven. Vera’s latest line up of wedding gowns are is nothing short of delicious with a color palette full of soft, dreamy and delectable shades. From soft cremes to warm lattes and blushing pinks to contemporary charcoals and elegant greys. Why stick to a white wedding gown when you can walk down the aisle in one of these shades?  I have to say Miss Wang is one very talented lady who just keeps raising the standard in wedding couture and a creative magician when it comes to manipulating those stunning fabrics. Any-hoo, here are some of my fav’s from the collection (actually, I think it is nearly all of them). You might want to make sure you’re sitting down and just remember to keep breathing ok?
