WEDDING DRESS OBSESSIONS | Watters and Watters | My dress dreams, come to life…

This morning I’m bringing Watters and Watters’ latest collection for 2011 to your faces.  And I know you’re already in love after seeing those two, above.  Eh?  Eh?  Am I right?  I’m right.  But just wait… there are approximately a lot more dresses in this post for you to ogle, and when you’re done sifting through the lot, you won’t know what hit you.  But I will…

I’ll know serious dress awesomeness hit you.


I heart pretty much all of these gowns.  Eerily so.  SO MUCH SO, in fact, that I’m coming up with conspiracy theories regarding their sources of inspiration.

Ok, so here’s what I think happened:

I think – and remember, this is a theory, so it’s only probably true; I have no evidence – that Watters and Watters kidnapped me, connected me in some futuristic way to a ‘hopes and dreams’ machine of some sort, and then extracted everything I dream of seeing in a bridal collection.  These ‘hopesicles’ and ‘dreamsicles’ (you can thank Erin Loechner for the suffix adorableness I just employed) were then injected in the coffee of the designers of these gowns and, somehow – I’m no scientist so I can’t explain this part – were introduced into the designers’ bloodstreams and, incredibly, inspired them to create these magnificent dresses.  Hopefully they’ll admit to this soon, because I’ve got a bit of a headache that I refuse to attribute to the festivities I attended this weekend.  I’m pretty sure the Watters and Watters idea-extraction machine is to blame.


Check this one out…

Wait for it… wait for it…

… Here it is IN A SHORT VERSION, Y’ALL!!!!!

Be still my beating heart.

So… thoughts on these babies?  I know you have ‘em, so spill ‘em.  (Not on the conspiracy theory – I’m already certain of that.  On the dresses.)

    I. LOVE. the 3rd one down from the top, with the bejeweled belt. I hope it becomes available in time for my wedding! It’s the perfect combination of everything I’ve ever wanted in my wedding gown. Hyperventilating over here.

    I LOOOOOOVE the first two. They are stunning. I’ve always been a pretty big fan of Watters Bridal, and wow, this definitely put me over the edge.

    I love Watters sooo much, even tho I’m biased b/c I was a Watters bride :) They were hands down the chicest, nicest, lux-est, best quality and material dresses in my price range (and even above my price range. seriously.) In love with these new additions! Particularly that last dress – it feels like the 2.0 version of mine :)

  8. Dessert Darling on October 21, 2010

    Loving all of these, but that short number is too much fun!

  12. TenThouBride on October 21, 2010

    That first short dress is freaking insane!

  13. Kristin Kowalski on October 22, 2010

    I love the one that has a short and long version, the sweetheart one with floral appliques on the sheer overlay, and the really romantic flowy two-tone nature gown where the model has a pink flower in her hair. You’re right these dresses are amazing. :)

  14. Labellebride on October 22, 2010

    Absolutely loving that first short dress!
