You get a wedding dress! You get a wedding dress! You get a wedding dress!
If you thought Oprah Winfrey could stir a crowd into a frenzy, just imagine the response she got when she gave away Vera Wang wedding gowns to 50 brides-to-be on her show.
Wang was a guest on the Sept. 17 episode, talking about wedding dress trends and her celebrity brides -- including Chelsea Clinton -- when Winfrey asked the soon-to-be-brides in the audience to stand and announced, "Miss Vera Wang is coming to your rescue."
Wang showed off 11 gowns from White by Vera, her new collection for David's Bridal, and the women were told they could chose their favorite. They also each received a $250 gift card to Kohl's, where Wang's Simply Vera line is sold; a $4,000 gift card for Marriott Hotels and Resorts; and two United Airlines travel vouchers.
White by Vera, available at 150 David's Bridal stores nationwide beginning February 2011, will include gowns ranging from classic ballroom styles to modern slim-cut silhouettes.
And, for those without Clinton-sized bank accounts, all gowns will be priced between $600 and $1,500. Sizes will range from 0 to 14, and the line will expand to offer bridesmaids dresses and shoes next summer. Additional sizes will be offered with the Fall 2011 collection.
"These dresses will be available to so many more brides than I've been able to ever reach before," Wang told Winfrey. "So it's a whole new world for us and bridal, with all the same aesthetics and design philosophy."
