Watters Brides Spring 2015 Trunk Show Preview

Our Watters Trunk Show is always one of our most highly anticipated trunk shows because we know we can expect all of the gowns to be stunning. Opening the trunk show crates is like Christmas morning where we all crowd around to see what we will pull out next. This season...it is no exception. Taking inspiration from the bride who isn't afraid to express herself, Watters incorporated lots of plunging necklines, vintage glamour, lace sleeves, separates, back detail, and dramatic beading. Here is a preview of what to expect:

Friday Feature: Syntel and Johnathon, October 18, 2014

It has been over 10 years since Syntel and I worked together at a local retail store in Lake Charles, Louisiana. So you couldn't imagine my excitement when she walked through the doors of Mia in search of the perfect gown. Now living in upstate New York, her extensive search went from Kleinfeld Bridal all the way back down to Houston, and I was determined to give Syntel the the "this is it" feeling none of the other gowns gave her. Syntel always had an eye for fashion so it wasn't surprising when I pulled the rose gold-colored Watters gown from our racks, her eyes widened, and she said she'd love to try it on. When she stepped out of the dressing room for the first time, everyone in the store knew: it was magic and it definitely was the "one." 

Johnathon and Syntel's fairytale began when the pair met on Halloween of 2013 and 2 months later, on a beautiful Parisian winter day, Jonathon popped the question. 

Friends playfully dubbed Syntel a fairy. So it only made sense that her bridal shoot was themed "Fairytale" which set the stage for the decor of her wedding. The blush tone of her gown against all of the vibrant greenery was nothing short of dreamy. 

As a lover of the Earth, it was Syntel's dream to tie the knot outdoors. So on October 18, 2014, in honor of Syntel's late mother's birthday, the happy couple exchanged vows in front of an enchanting vintage bookcase encasing pink, white and green floral arrangements. Lustrous hues of pinks, greens and golds spewed across tablescapes while the indoor reception showcased nests of pink roses, wild flowers and ferns that hung from the rustic chandeliers.

Syntel glowed in the two piece, lace and Spanish net, blush-colored Watters ballgown which was paired perfectly with a blush veil and green suede Prada heels. Instead of a traditional bouquet, Syntel carried a beautiful floral rosary with dangling flowers down the aisle. Her bridesmaids opted out of bouquets as well. True to her fashionista mentality, Syntel wanted her bridal party to feel like they were walking down a runway rather than a wedding aisle. Each girl stunned in champagne-colored gowns of their choosing while the guys shined in gray.

2015 Bridal Trend Forecast

          Last month, New York Bridal Market wrapped exhibiting some of the hottest trends brides can look forward to in 2015. Overskirts, Sleeves & Straps, Beautiful Backs, High-Low Skirts, and Soft & Whimsical gowns have been seen all over the runway. Mia Bridal Couture was lucky enough to be front row at sought-after designers such as Rivini, Amsale, Sareh Nouri and many others, and we're sharing our favorite trends with you! Here is our 2015 bridal trend break-down which we cannot wait to get on our racks this upcoming year. 

Transforming a bridal look between the ceremony and the reception is definitely not a recent trend, but what if I told you you can completely change the silhouette of your gown? One of the hottest looks at NYC Bridal Market was the addition of the overskirt. Designers are solving many brides' dilemma of whether they are a "ball gown bride" or a "fitted bride" by letting them be both! Designers like Rivini, Alon Livne, Alyne and Judd Waddell showed overskirts made of tulle and taffeta. 

In 2015, it's going to be all about the shoulder detail. Having straps and sleeves on your wedding gown is no longer associated with your mother's beautiful gown. Designers like Alon Livne, Sareh Nouri, and Antonio Gual have mastered the art of modernizing straps and sleeves. Whether it is full, lace sleeves or dainty, beaded cap sleeves, there will be lots of shoulder detail come next year.

Recently, dramatic backs have been no stranger to being on the top trends list. For the past few seasons, brides go into appointments with entire Pinterest boards of stunning backs they've pinned. 2015 will be no different. Open lace backs, beaded backs or just completely bare backs can be seen in almost every bridal collection next year. 

In current seasons, the high-low skirt trend have really been popular on the fashion runways of New York, Paris, Milan and many others. Now, bridal runways have also joined in on the fun. Designers like Alyne and Rivini had their models bare a little leg with this playful yet sexy trend. 

Soft and whimsical gowns were so popular this upcoming season that even Rita Vinieris named her Fall 2015 Rivini collection, "Soft Seduction." There is something about a soft and airy bridal gown that creates a sense of magic. Delicate necklines paired with flowy skirts made of special nets and tulle were seen by Watters Brides, Amsale, Sareh Nouri and many others.
