The WToo and Watters Bridal collections are for a woman with a youthful, free spirit. Season after season Vatana Watters and her talented team design pretty, easy-to-wear wedding dresses that are on trend and exactly what brides want to wear. If you're looking for a slinky, sexy gown then look no further than the white bias-cut silk charmeuse one shoulder column with a revealing (but not too) cut-out bodice or the fitted satin mermaid with a curvaceous corset, belted in jeweled black ribbon.
Touches of black and cosmetic colors appear throughout the collection if you're looking for new hues. There are belts, witty headpieces and full-on dresses. A peaches and cream combo makes a pretty play for a bride's affection in a romantic cream organza dress with a delicately appliqued floral bodice that's all wrapped up in a peachy ribbon at the waist. An eccentric straw garden hat topped in tulle completes the look.
Watters Bride's peachy-nude tulle ball gown has a larger than life tufted skirt topped with a perfectly draped sweetheart bodice. The color and silhouette are universally flattering and make a sophisticated choice for a bride who wants to make a bold and beautiful statement.
If you're a bride in search of a fuller silhouette, you will have multiple choices here--dropped and natural-waisted, fitted bodices sit atop wild-child distressed tulle ball skirts. Floral appliques, architectural asymmetrically draped skirts and horsehair-edged tiers make their way through the collection. Full, dramatic dresses are light-as-air and as pretty as a picture.
Not into extremes? Then the dreamy romantic empire and A-line gowns might be the perfect middle ground. WToo's drapey tulle Victorian-inspired gown with layered edges of delicate scalloped lace made our top ten list--an ideal dress for a garden or breezy beach ceremony. Creamy, antique laces, jeweled belts and tulle frills make these dresses utterly covetable.
Known for some of the most modern, feminine bridesmaid dresses, Watters doesn't disappoint. There are short, long, fitted, swingy, languid and flirty shapes in a multitude of hues: crimson, jet, royal, plum, peach, chocolate, moss, ivory and even white. Pop-art shades in lemon and lime set a fun tone for your party girls.
Their short black satin sheath has a sedate high neckline, but the surprise cutout back is a study in modern geometry. We loved the dapper tuxedo look of their two-toned A-line dress, with it's neat, long flared skirt in black and it's trim white bodice with pleated tux frills, all chicly wrapped up in a tailored boy-meets-girl cummerbund waistband.
