Vera Wang has never been afraid of color when it comes to bridalwear, and this season, she’s bringing some rainbow hues to her collection for David’s Bridal. During our recent trip to preview the not-yet-released White by Vera Wang looks at the designer’s showroom, we spotted this ombre blush ballgown, which also featured a plunging back and antique jeweled corsage at the hip. Coupled with Anne Hathaway’s hand-painted wedding dress, we get the feeling that we’ll be seeing a lot of pink coming down the aisle in the near future! If the pastel pink ballet slippers color is too bold, the tulle design also comes in stone (a muted gray) or all-over ivory. Best of all, the design will sell for $1,348 when it debuts at David’s Bridal later this year, along with five other new, budget-friendly styles.

Sad news for brides: David’s Bridal Holdings Co. announced today that all Priscilla of Boston labels and 19 salons are closing by the end of 2011. The collections that are discontinued include Priscilla of Boston, Platinum by Priscilla of Boston, The Dress by Priscilla of Boston, Jewel by Priscilla of Boston, Melissa Sweet, Reverie by Melissa Sweet, and the Vineyard Collection.

“After nearly 65 years of serving America’s most beautiful brides, we have made the difficult decision to close Priscilla of Boston salons and the Priscilla of Boston portfolio of brands. This decision allows us to focus our resources on our sister division, David’s Bridal, to further accelerate David’s growth and strengthen our industry leadership.”
If you’ve already ordered your dress, all orders will be fulfilled “with the same care, love and diligence as we have over the last many years,” as salons remain open through December. In the meantime, look back at the latest looks from the Priscilla of Boston labels in the gallery, and share your Priscilla memories in the comments.
