Q&A with Vera Wang

Below is a recent Q&A with Vera Wang


I am recently engaged and although I am very excited about planning the wedding, I already feel overwhelmed. Everyone has an opinion. While I want everyone to feel included, I’m beginning to feel like it is not “my” wedding anymore…


The emotions around a wedding can be complicated. Despite the happiness, some couples feel a loss of freedom and identity as they negotiate with their family and friends, and with each other. The challenge is to avoid a block in the lines of communication.

An engagement is a time when people learn new things about each other – patience is essential. Intimacy is also important. Commit to quiet moments that will allow you to retain your sense of autonomy and to reconnect with your partner on a very basic level.

For a bride, remember to focus on elements that are truly “yours” – the wedding dress being one. Your dress should be the ultimate statement of “you” on your wedding day.
