We love Vera Wang here at the WeddingsOnline.ie/B Mag office. We love her so much that we really feel we are on a first name basis with her. So when "Vera" is mentioned, all the WOL women pause, sigh and take a moment to ponder the queen of couture and all her gloriousness.
So in honour of Vera here is a glimpse of the Fall 2011 collection that was shown at the Bridal Market (the bridal fashion event of the year) a couple weeks ago.

Here it is ladies. The thing taking up the limited brain space of Karen and I for the last 3 months! This is the winter issue of B! We are so excited about the cover, shot by the amazing Darren Purcell of Visionary Photography at our photo shoot at the Slieve Russell Hotel.
The issue will be out in shops late next week.
The DIY bride's guide to the best shops for creating an amazing wedding and adding a personal touch.
A Rubanesque in the Powerscourt Centre is a crafty lady's dream. Stocking internationally sourced ribbons, lace, trimmings, buttons, fabrics, notions and so much more, you can also go to Alexa O’Byrne and her team with your idea and they'll help you put together anything you need for your DIY project!
Hickey's Fabrics on Henry Street is the perfect place to go for whimsical wedding fabrics. Whether it's bunting, pinwheels for your photo props or little bags for your flowergirl to hold her silk petals, Hickey's have a huge range to choose from. Their in-store pattern books are a huge help for getting ideas and the staff are fantastic at guiding you through your project. They also have a whole section dedicated to the bride-to-be, if you fancy a real challange with ilks, satins, organza, chiffons, georgettes and veils....

Gollum's Precious in the Powerscourt Centre has a fabulous selection of vintage brooches in store which you can mix and match with your own to create a beautiful brooch bouquet like the one pictured. See this link for how to design your own: http://www.fancypantsweddings.com/how-to-design-a-brooch-bouquet/
Dublin Woolen Mills on the Ha'penny Bridge is the perfect place to go if you're planning on making your own birdcage veil. They have the perfect netting as well as great sinemay flower which are great as bases of fascinators. They come in a natural colour and can be dyed. You could also pick up some stricking peacock feathers here to add to a bouquet, centrepiece or use as your groom's buttonholes.

Yep...the title says it all. When I found this dress on Style Me Pretty I knew this was it...this was wedding dress perfection. And it totally figures, as it's designed by none other than Oscar de la Renta. The whole couture thing may make it a tad out of reach for most brides, but I really think we should all take a couple moments of silence to appreciate the sheer beauty of this perfect garment.
