Win a Vera Wang wedding gown, a honeymoon to Hawaii, and more...



Bloomingdale's is currently auctioning off five once-in-a-lifetime experiences in support of the Child Mind Institute (whose mission is to transform mental health care for the world's children); Included in the auction is the very cool sounding Vera Wang Experience: the winning bidder and a guest will set off with first class airline tickets to New York, where they will visit Vera at her bridal boutique for a 30-minute consultation, and after perusing, select a gown from her signature collection. While in Manhattan, they will stay for three nights at The Pierre and also get to meet Dr. Ruth Westheimer for a one-hour consultation during lunch at Bloomingdale's Le Train Bleu restaurant. To commemorate the experience, they will also receive a portrait by Brian Marcus of Fred Marcus photography studio. AND to top it all off, the couple will fly to Hawaii with two first-class tickets for a seven-night stay at Kahala Hotel and Resort, complete with a rejuvenating spa package. The minimum bid is $25,000; 100% of the proceeds from the auctions will go directly to the Child Mind Institute.

Bidding is currently open, and will be until December 10. Visit for more details. —Lauren Matthews, editor, Brides New York
