Making the case for a lavender wedding gown

Pretty pretty pretty, pretty pretty, PRETTY! PRET-TAYYYYYYY.

Those were my deep thoughts on Friday night, when I got a glimpse of the fall bridal collection from Watters. Admittedly, I’m biased because I’ll be wearing a gown from their Wtoo line on my wedding day, but just LOOK at these dresses. So dreamy. That first one up there? I love how it’s traditional because of the lace and back bead closure, yet contemporary because of the floaty tulle and plunging neckline. It’s alluring, but not so in-your-face sexy that Grandma Eunice would clutch her pearls.

That was my favorite dress, but the most unexpected was a lavender gown. Yep, lavender. I think that these unconventional dresses, along with the growth of less-traditional bridal shops such as BHLDN and Lovely, say something bigger about the way women get married today. We’re less concerned with looking rigidly “bridal,” and more interested in looking like ourselves on our wedding day. Personally, I love women who are confident and enough to break from tradition — and if that means wearing the hell out of a lavender gown, you won’t hear any complaints from me.

      Me too. If it had been around when I was dress shopping, it might have been the one.
