gorgeous dresses, horrible service – I went to the flagship salon to find accessories for my Vera Wang wedding dress. Upon making the appointment, I explained that I had already purchased a gown at another certified VW salon (a family friend worked there), but that I wanted to add on veil, shoes, etc. at the flagship store. She told me that was fine, but when I arrived it took them a half hour to find a record of my appointment, and when they did finally locate someone to help me, she hurried me into a closet/office because they were "busy" and the other rooms were "all full." Other employees then kept unexpectedly coming into my makeshift dressing room to retrieve things. Needless to say, not the image of Vera Wang I had in mind. While I love my dress, I am definitely glad that I bought it somewhere else, and will definitely find accessories elsewhere.
you're not paying for service – i have been to the vera wang bridal salon twice - the first time as a bride, the second as a friend of the bride. i would expect the service to be MUCH better. when i went as the bride, my sales associate was average. my second trip was awful, the sales associate was rude, snobby and outright insulting to myself and the bride. i felt terrible for the bride! her vera wang experience was supposed to be fun! i had much better experiences at the run-of-the-mill bridal stores.
With a simple design hand and fashion expertise, this house made wedding dresses chic again. – The flagship store is a perfect reflection of Ms. Wang herself, an ex-pro ice skater and Vogue editor who changed the face of wedding dresses forever by doing away with tacky lace and excess beading. The cool beige carpeted interior and sweeping spiral staircase create a perfect calming environment to choose a gown for your important day. The store houses all of Wang's wedding dresses as well as her ready to wear collection (favored by fashion editors and rich mommies), plus shoes and a small selection of evening bags. Expect signature Wang style, meaning sexy and minimalist. Don't come here looking for over-the-top froth or fairy princess looks--or without deep pockets.
