From the Runway: Vera Wang Spring 2013 Bridal Collection

The look book for the Vera Wang Spring 2013 Bridal Collection just landed in our inbox, and we can’t wait to share the designer’s latest creations–these dresses are red hot!

We’ve seen color emerge on the bridal fashion runways over the past few seasons, from blush to peach and gray to gold. At Vera Wang’s fall 2012 bridal fashion show, she pushed the color boundaries by sending black wedding gowns down the runway. This time around, Wang once again incorporated color into her collection, but she opted for brighter, saturated hues, showing grand ballgowns and sexy mermaid silhouettes in scarlet, crimson, cranberry, and plum. Feast your eyes on a few of our favorites…

Cardinal strapless ballgown with hand-rolled floral detail skirt and horsehair trim

Dahlia mermaid gown with chevron pleated bodice and pleated tulle skirt with hand-rolled floral applique shoulder detail

Wang described the symbolism of red in her spring 2013 collection as: “Boldly romantic, charming, protective, grand, seductive, sexy… A celebration of love.
