The story behind my Vera Wang Wedding Dress- Gemma from her Fall 2011 Collection



"There are so many beautiful aspects to the Gemma gown. Perhaps the most otherworldly element is the ethereal combination of French tulle and organza, something you wouldn’t expect in a gown with such a defined mermaid silhouette.
Still, this is a very soft mermaid: I didn’t want anything to be too rigid. We used bands of tulle, wrapping around the body like a swirling cyclone, and ending in bias-cut flanges, which are deconstructed, abstract blossoms in tissue organza: it’s the perfect storm. Inside these rosettes I’ve added what I call “blizzard beading”: hundreds of tiny little sequins scattered all around. Once the dress is in motion, you get the thrill of that subtle play between lights and darks, but in the form of rosy, feminine blooms.
Between the blossoms and the beading, there’s certainly a pageantry in the base of this gown. It’s an absolute celebration of volume that is meant to be very dramatic, with the fantasy of a ball gown and the sensuousness of a mermaid gown combined. If you desire even more drama, a bride might choose to add a sequined belt for just a little flicker of beading, to really highlight the waist. Combined with the shimmer of sequins in the cut blossoms of the skirt, it’s a very dynamic look from every angle.
Gemma is one of my more glamorous dresses, giving the bride something slender and sleek up top, and at the bottom the flash and splash of sequins and dynamic volume, for the ultimate wedding day spectacle.
-Vera Wang

Michiekins Wedding Dress

Good morning :D
I know many of you guys have been waiting for this moment for me to spill about my wedding gown!
Btw, have to you watch Gossip Girl latest episode yet?

Episode 5 x 11 The End of the Affairs?
Ive just finish watching it! Cant wait for next week’s episode!

If yes, or not, I might have spoiled it to some of you if you keep reading my blog post below, i wont say anything, but just revealing about the dress, dont worry!

Ive save this date to blog about my wedding dress and many have guess designers like Elie Saab, Jenny Packham or Vera Wang OR MYSELF. lol.

Well, some guessed it right. I bought a VERA WANG BRIDAL FALL 2011 wedding dress when I was in London :)

Its the most gorgeous wedding dress I ever saw! and of course my bridesmaid Su Anne and Jasiminne was with me when I was trying on the gowns.







The only Vera Wang bridal available was at Browns Bride, a whole shop dedicated for only Vera Wang bridal couture dresses.

I even saw Blair’s wedding gown as I was browsing thru this shop :)



Its called the GISELE :) from her Fall 2011 collection

During my visit to the shop, they only have Vera Wang Fall 2011 bridal dresses and you have to make an appointment to try those dresses and you’ll have to pay £15 to try on these amazing bridal gowns.

The service was of course very professional, they serve me and Jasiminne champagne as I were trying the bridal gowns.
* there goes our £15! lol

Here are some pictures from Vera Wang Fall 2011 Bridal Collection

Now, are you ready to see me in it? :D

Perfect fiancee, perfect dress, perfect destination!

more pictures will be shown on actual wedding reception!
We’ve already booked and payed the deposit for both venue back in Taiping and in KL


For the wedding shoes, I decided not to splurge on white shoes but instead a gorgeous NUDE colour and Louboutin was no exception :)



Ive been planning my wedding ever since i was a kid, and Vera Wang bridal gowns has always been a dream wedding dress as she’s the mother of all bridal dresses and Louboutin has the most amazing shoes ever! 

I wanted a perfect wedding, so we did splurge a wee bit on the dress and shoes, but hey.. they are the best, arent they? :)
