With only eight issues of the magazine in the Southern Weddings archives, chances of the same gown designer appearing on more than one cover is pretty slim–there are so many talented folks out there, after all! However, one designer does have that under their belt–totally unintentionally, and simply because their gowns reflect our sweet Southern readers so well! That designer is Watters (find their gowns on the covers of V5 and V8), and this year with their Spring 2016 collection, they’re celebrating 30 years of making brides feel beautiful on their wedding days!
Creative Director at Watters, Xay Vongphachanh says, “We’re so inspired by the energy and beauty of our brides and strive to design pieces with them in mind. Our goal has remained the same for 30 years–to make a bride feel absolutely gorgeous on her special day.” We love that!!
Watters collections include their signature line, Watters brides and bridesmaids, Wtoo brides and bridesmaids, Willowby brides, and Seahorse (darling designs for flower girls and junior bridesmaids). To celebrate its anniversary, Watters is thrilled to present The Muse Collection, in recognition of the many women who have inspired designs over the past three decades. They’ve also added plenty of new styles to the adorable Seahorse collection for the littlest members of your bridal party.
Watters uses only the best fabrics, including 100 percent silk shantung, silk organza, silk taffeta and a variety of elegant laces. As you can see on the V8 cover, they know how to do “glam” in a perfectly elegant way, with just the right amount of sparkle and texture!
