If anyone knows dramatic wedding dresses, it's Vera Wang. (Hello, who else would send out a red-to-toe bridal collection?) Better still, Wang knows how to serve up drama without an equally shocking price tag, hence the designer's White by Vera Wang line at David's Bridal. This fit-and-flare gown delivers its drama with an asymmetrical skirt made from basket-weave organza roses, which peek out from under folds of draped ivory mikado. The strapless neckline ensures that the key style statement stays below the waist, although brides who share Wang's theatrical flair will no doubt opt for a major jewelry moment up top.
