"I wanted to define the vocabulary of a wedding both visually and intellectually. The book is about more than weddings or wedding dresses. It's a metaphor for women's lives, their creativity."
"The real act of marriage takes place in the heart, not in the ballroom or church or synagogue. It's a choice you make - not just on your wedding day, but over and over again - and that choice is reflected in the way you treat your husband or wife."Vera Wang on Barbara de Angelis
"My advice to you is get married: if you find a good wife you'll be happy if not, you'll become a philosopher."Vera Wang on Socrates
"It's a funny thing that when a man hasn't anything on earth to worry about, he goes off and gets married."Vera Wang on Robert Frost
"I was married by a judge. I should have asked for a jury."Vera Wang on Groucho Marx
"Love is the master key that opens the gates of happiness."Vera Wang on Oliver Wendell Holmes
"Design is about point of view, and there should be some sort of woman or lifestyle or attitude in one's head as a designer."

"To me, eyewear goes way beyond being a prescription. It's like makeup. It's the most incredible accessory. The shape of a frame or the color of lenses can change your whole appearance."
"When I design a wedding dress with a bustle, it has to be one the bride can dance in. I love the idea that something is practical and still looks great."
"All those years of skating and dancing have carried over. I can't design anything without thinking of how a woman's body will look and move when she's wearing it."
