Vera Wang introduces Vera Wang On Weddings, her new collection of personalized wedding stationery. Vera Wang On Weddings marries the timeless art of wedding invitation design with the modern twists and playful proportions that are the hallmark of Vera Wang's bridal and fashion collections. This collection features more than 30 new wedding stationery suites inspired by the exquisite design details for which the designer is renowned. Rich texture and embellishment are shown on every page in designs including "Engraved Peony" (in red), featuring a beautifully oversized hand-etched peony engraved in rich Peony ink. This invitation is the perfect design for the true romanticist. The engraved ribbon accent in Taupe ink adds the finishing touch to an invitation that is both feminine and elegant, yet modern and bold. "Embossed Zinnia" (in orange) features a cover that is richly embossed with delightful zinnias to create a beautiful canvas of texture and dimension. Embossed details are carried forward in coordinating components to set the perfect tone for the special occasion. With a broad and versatile range of papers, inks, ribbons and other design elements to choose from, the new Vera Wang On Weddings collection of wedding invitations and stationery suites perfectly captures the designer's unique balance of taste and modernity.
