Wedding planning trauma is real, and one of the biggest stress factors is the overwhelming need to navigate a sea of uncharted territory just to find an “it” dress that wows the crowd. No longer: Beloved designer Karen Walker is setting the record straight with the launch of a wedding line – entitled Karen Walker Atelier – that allows prospective brides to keep it real with their outfits while looking just as beautiful for their wedding day. Though it might be surprising to some to see the down-to-earth designer create a fully-fledged bridal line, that’s exactly the point: Featuring minis, ankle-length dresses and two ivory suits, the New Zealand-based designer will be curating more preferable fits that are personal and understated in contrast to the fussy, princess pouf jobs of the olden days. And another trend that’s spacing the globe is that brides are shopping for more than one dress. At Walker’s price point – starting at just US$950 – you could easily rationalize doing the same: Maybe you’ll wear the sheer tulle gown for the ceremony, then change into the crushed-satin tux for a night of dancing. Either way, your wedding planning burden just got a whole lot lighter.
