Bang for Your Buck

A Vera Good Deal

Brides who’ve fantasized about wearing a Vera Wang gown but were stymied by their budget should check out this steal: For $2,890—that’s about half the cost of her most crave-worthy wedding styles—you can walk down the aisle in this dark ivory sheath with ornamental seaming and velvet petals embroidered on the neckline. Starting this year, you’ll find a sprinkling of lower-priced gowns in the designer’s collections, a dream of a deal for anyone who’s ever imagined herself looking very Vera.
