I ordered my Watters Torrean in white, and I am having an impossible time trying to decide what colors I want to choose!
I am thinking either a tangerine and apple, or a purple and green!
Getting married next July 24, 2010 and I know I have time, but I need to really start thinking about this!
I am lifting the skirt of the dress up a little bit so it is not so much of a “trumpet” but more of an “a-line” and we ordered extra floral appliques to make a one shoulder strap. The one bridesmaid dress I have been looking at is BariJay.com and it is the one shoulder floral strap.

I love the Watters – Torrean gown! I didn’t get to try it on, but love how it looks on other brides. I think that purple and green are a really pretty combination so I would vote for those colors 🙂

I am a watters bride too!! the torrean is beautiful! I am partial to the purple, I am using a dark plum/eggplant purple with accents of ivory, blush and green.

Brittany, did you get to see the Torrean in white before ordering? They only have eggshell at every local salon near me (Los Angeles) and I am trying to decide between white and eggshell. My main accent is apple green, wedding is May 2010. Does the white make the flowers/lace less noticeable? Is it a blinding diamond white?

I did not see it in white, and I initially ordered it in the Eggshell… When I got home from the bridal boutique I bought it at, I looked at pictures and fell in love with the white! I have not yet seen it in person, but the owner of the boutique that I bought it at ordered a swatch for me. I think the details are more “prevalent” in the white, but the dress is so beautiful that you can’t go wrong (hopefully)! 🙂
Also, I have been able to take the swatch places with me to make sure that colors and fabrics look good with it. Again, it is not the real thing, but it gives me the idea! I believe you can’t go wrong with whatever color you order it in!
Hope that helps!

I just tired on the Torrean dress yesterday in eggshell (only color they had at the botique). I fell in love with this dress. It’s the only dress I’ve had my eye on after searching the web and looking at pictures, but seeing it on was even more beautiful!
Did you get to see it in the white? I’m trying to decide to get the white or the eggshell.
As for colors I’m doing a watermelon/peon and buttercream yellow. I’m getting married June 26, 2010.
My vote for you would be the tangerine and apple- it’s summer- use those bright colors that will glow in your pictuers and brighten up your party and reception!
If you can give me any more thoughts of the Torrean- I’m trying to decide to spend the extra money for the dress. My dress budget wasn’t set at $2730 which the botique is selling the dress for.. but this is like a MUST HAVE-
Can’t wait to hear what colors you chose!

I ordered the Torrean wedding dress in white and color looks fine. My issue with the dress is it seems like the lace is too stiff. The dress has no flow to it. Also, it has been really hard to put a bustle on it since the lace is so stiff. has anyone else had this problem? If anyone has any pictures of how the dress looked on them will you please email them to me. The dress just doesn’t look like right on me….it would be good to see how the dress is meant to look on a real person. Also, I did the hollow to hem because I am short and I’m really glad that I did. It would have been impossible to hem that dress!

Do any of you have this dress for sale now? I’m looking everywhere for it! 🙂 Either color works.

Elena— How much was your hollow to hem from Watters? I think I was ripped off at 250 in addition..
