Watters 2013 Fall Collection
Brides-to-be, I am so excited for you! My journey last week to New York Bridal Week was so full of beautiful wedding dresses, it made me realize how lucky you recently-engaged brides-to-be are! You'll have so many amazing styles and choices this upcoming season; and perhaps nowhere was that range of loveliness more apparent than at Watters.
I started my first day during Bridal Week at Watters' runway, and that set the tone and excitement for my whole adventure. Watters is known for their slogan, "Feel the Love" and it was so true - I was feeling it! There is truly such a positive group of talent people who are behind the dresses at Watters and they showed such an amazing array of dresses for every style of bride, and every shape! They love their brides and the love to dress every type of bride, and it shows!
Watters Brides Fall 2013 Collection is was inspired by "Something Blue" which is not so much about the color (although it made an appearance, too!) but more a play on the idea of blue blooded royalty and aristocracy. Every dress truly was regal, and so many different styles were shown. Watters showed a range of wonderful dresses from all their lines: Watters Brides, Wtoo, and Watters Bridesmaids and Wtoo Bridesmaids. Each one is worthy of highlighting - so I'll be showing you pieces of each line over the next few weeks!
I'm starting things off with Watters Brides, where I saw everything from sleek strapless A-line gowns like " Jodie" to stunning asymmetrical necklines and mermaid gowns like " Trudie" and stunners like " Brooke" with cascades of ruffles in a ball gown style. Watters Brides also featured stunning accessories by Thomas Knoell, veils by Toni Federici, and lace capelets and overlays to give strapless gowns a covered church-ready look, that can be easily removed for a second look at the reception.
Here's your sneak preview of a few of my favorites from the Watters Brides 2013 collection. Brides, don't you agree, you're royally lucky to have all of these to choose from?
