Hi ladies –
I just bought my dress on Saturday (in a snowstorm!!) and bought it after only trying on 9 dresses total at two different salons. The same dress was at both salons and it was by far the best dress for me! I have been looking around the dress boards for a while now, and have never seen my dress or really any Watters or Wtoo dresses – anyone out there have one? Did/do you love it??! I got the Wtoo Vesper and I LOVE IT. Very reasonably priced too. Totally forgot to take a picture of me in it since I was so excited, but wanted to show it off nonetheless.
Show us your Watters or Wtoo dresses!!

My dress was a Watters and Watters dress. When I originally got it we had different plans than what ended up happening so I ended up shortening it to tea length. Here is it in its original form and shortened.

mkat88 – I think I may have tried that dress on! If it wasn’t that exact dress it looked extremely similar. it was one of the contenders! I love it.

I’m wearing the Wtoo Carolina, with some changes. I’ll be wearing a different sash with it because I hated the one it came with. I might also be adding a ruffle detail to the sweetheart neckline. The picture on the Watters website is weird, I think it looks nothing like the dress. It’s a trumpet fitting dress, but in the picture it looks A-line. I really liked the textured fabric and the fact it didn’t have any beading or sparklies. I’m excited to see another Wtoo bride on here!

@jmuclyn Where did you find WToo Brides in the D.C. area? I would like to find style Zora to try on.

Our bridesmaids will be wearing WTOO! Does that count? Oh I guess not. Well they’re pretty! The color will be “Sangria” which is a burgundy.

There are other Watter’s brides on weddingbee. Here is a link to an older conversation all about Watters dresses: http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/watters-brides-post-your-opinions-and-real-life-pics

Prettylittlemess- I am not in the DC area, but this is how I found my Watters dress. Look at the store finder on the Watters website. That will indicate which stores carry full or partial lines of Watters and WTOO dresses in your area. Once you find a store that looks promising, call them and ask if they carry the dress that you like. Don’t expect them to be willing to give you a price unless you come into the store.

@ prettylittlemess –
I got my dress at Katherine’s in Alexandria – right on Duke Street close to Old Town. I also tried on some WToo’s at Ann’s Boutique in Burke, Va. Katherine’s was amazing though. Go there. They’ve got a ton of dresses and Kathleen is the best consultant ever. The place is very unassuming from the outside but is really classy inside.

I just bought this same dress!!! At a trunk show a couple of weeks ago. I keep googling to see others in the dress, but I think its still too new. The Watters rep at the trunk show said that it was one of their newest and on their marketing materials this season.
I am so happy to see someone else likes this dress! I tried it on with a sash around the waist and it looked really great. I am going to try to find one on etsy.

i fell in love with “dallas” from the newest watters bridal line. it was even more gorgeous when i saw it in person at a trunk show. the price tag left me aghast- it’s the single largest wedding expense, even more than our venue is costing. BUT! i was able to buy the trunk show sample gown for a large discount, nearly 30% off. it made it worth it.

I tried on 8 dresses in 2 different salons and fell in love with WTOO vesper! I knew from the minute I put it on that it was “the one”! Love it!

I am a Watters Bride! I am so excited to finally get to put it on after the seamstress is done sizing it down for me! (the salon i went to ordered a size to big not thinking i could fit into the size smaller and it was huge!) I am wearing a champagne sash around my waist too.
