Since Vera Wang divorce with Arthur Becker went public, news articles on the supposed curse of her wedding dresses began to sprout left and right. A couple of days back, Mario Grauso, the president of Wang’s company said: Vera Wang and Arthur Becker have mutually and amicably agreed to separate. They remain devoted parents to their two daughters. The news is just plain sad – I mean I’m always saddened by any spilt up because I’m a hopeless romantic. You know that – I believe that love, fairytales and a happy ever after can come to life if you work hard to keep a relationship afloat. Love is truly a splendid thing.
Anyway, this fanfare took the spotlight when some people took notice of the number of celebs who wore Vera’s gowns on their big day and ended up in Splitsville a couple of years after. Some of them are Jessica Simpson, Sophia Bush, Jennifer Lopez, Avril Lavigne, Mariah Carey (with Tommy Mottola), Heidy Klum and most recently, Kim Kardashian.
It’s not fair! I love Vera’s gowns and I dream of actually walking down the aisle in one of her gorgeous wedding dress. Not everyone of her clients went down to Splitsville. Khloe Kardashian, Victoria Beckham, Ivanka Trump and Chelsea Clinton all wore her wedding gowns and are still happily married today.
I do believe that the success or failure of any relationship, or marriage for this matter, is solely dependent on the commitment and love the two people share. It should never be about the gown or the house or even the social status that they have. If they want to make things work – they would definitely fight to be together. I remember reading an online post about an old woman who was asked why she and her husband stayed together for a very long time – her answer was pretty short and simple. She said it was because they fell in love at time when broken things are fixed – not thrown out. Challenges will always be present in every corner of our lives – it’s a fact! We better accept it and work our way around it.
As for the Vera Wang wedding dress that I’m dreaming of, I’m thinking hard about it. Not that I’d be needing it soon but I’m not really bend on spending that much on the big day. Might as well save money for the family.
I might trade the glorious gown for a beautiful summer dress and a pair of bamboo shoes. I guess that would be a better match for the sunset beach wedding that I’m dreaming of.
