By Dinnia Means April 19, 2019

Today is Good Friday, but ladies yesterday, in my opinion, was gorgeous Thursday. Vera Wang wedding designer Royalty! Previewing her newest collection for David’s Bridal last night in NYC was epic. The cherry on top a Q&A with Vera and Darcy Miller of Martha Stewart Weddings. Bridal fashion week spring 2020 is upon us. was on the VIP list. Wow, we love what we do! Vera Wang at Davids Bridal

Vera’s lasts collection for David’s bridal was simply breathtaking... but HELLO its Vera what would you except? It was a special evening such a cozy setting at David’s Bridal flagship store in the big apple. The night was to celebrate affordable works of art created by the master Vera Wang. I have been married for over 25 years and after seeing those stunning dresses, I wanted to do it all over again. It is so refreshing how dresses have evolved each season. It is nice that if you wish you can show your sexy side. As Vera said last night it is your day be you and expressing what you like is a good thing.

These two powerhouses in the wedding industry were lovely. They were both very laid back and the evening felt like you were invited to a close friends apartment for drinks and friendly chit chat.  Vera after approaching 30 years in the industry is still on her A game and it is clear she loves what she does. The Q&A questions gave the best advice and the most important take away I want to share is you have to remember to enjoy the moment. Vera had two lavish weddings, a western wedding, and a traditional Asian wedding. Complete with at least 7 dress changes. Vera designed Darcy’s wedding dress as well as all her bridesmaids’ dress. Their friendship bond was apparent last night. They both expressed that every bride is different and that is the beauty of your wedding day. If we are being honest planning the perfect wedding all comes down to your finances. founder Donna Means with Vera Wang

Vera was asked about choosing the perfect wedding dress. She said a bride knows when to say yes to the dress. Vera said that is such a special thing they just know. These experts in the industry also said it is important to know your venue before you pick the dress. Vera’s niece just got married. Of course, Vera designed her stunning wedding dress. She spoke about how her niece’s long train was getting torn on the path as she walked down the aisle. OMG! Ladies just be mindful. founder Donna Means with Vera Wang at Davids Bridal

When questioned about her advice on wedding jewelry. Her opinion was this is not fashion jewelry this is a piece you will wear every day for hopefully a lifetime. Whether it be a simple band or a glammed-up diamond ring, remember this ring will be worn daily. Obviously, money comes into play as well. You and your fiancé’ should both decide on the budget and go from there.

Obviously, Vera Wang and Darcy Miller both had extraordinary weddings. They gave terrific advice to brides to be and other guests attending last night’s VIP event. Vera expressed it best last night saying your wedding will last about 5 hours and then it is all over. The whole kit and caboodle carted out and it's all over. Basically, months of preparation over in a mere 5 stinking hours. Now for a bit of math. Experts say the average cost for fresh flowers for a wedding can range from $3,000-$11,000. Surprise SUPRISE this to many industry experts would be the low-end cost.  Of course, some brides have ridiculous budgets and can afford to go crazy. Their flower budgets may make some gasp. The rule of thumb is to spend 10% of the total cost of your wedding budget on flowers. In 5 hours, the cost per hour for flowers adds up quickly.


  • $3,000= $600 per hour for flowers
  • $6,000=$1,200 per hour for fresh flowers
  • $11,000=$2,200 per hour for fresh flowers

I think you're getting my point. When you break down the cost per hour for the flowers, you have to say WOWSA! is the perfect choice to rent and return on trend beautiful premium real to the touch silk wedding flowers. Our average flower rentals cost is about $600.
