Vera Wang's first bridal collection debuted in 1990, and she's been an industry powerhouse ever since. Alongside wedding dresses, Vera Wang has done flowers, rings, stationery, Barbie doll brides, and registry-worthy home goods. Vera Wang knows weddings—she's even published a book. Victoria Beckham and Chelsea Clinton both wore Vera Wang wedding dresses at their ceremonies, as did Alicia Keys and Lily Aldridge. Luxurious, artistic, and highly-acclaimed, these dresses mean business, collection after collection. Expert draping and beautiful layering are signatures of the the fashion house's style, which is why it comes as no surprise that they made an appearance in Fall's 2017 bridal collection. The loose, cold-shoulder sleeves in this look book are absolutely ethereal, and we're loving the focus on fresh and intricate macramé lace. Special details in the line include high slits and bridal buttons, with no shortage of Chantilly lace. Black crystal embellishments are show-stopping as both belts and bust embellishments, while illusion necks and lacey yokes offer ample structural intrigue. We're especially spellbound by this year's halter tops, and the cool, creative backs that "wow" even from behind. Ball gown or A-line, tulle or silk, these wedding dresses are striking, gorgeous, and dreamy.
