A Decade of Delectation

Cue “The Suite” by the Chamber Orchestra of London as we find wedding inspiration of the early 1900’s.

Those who loathe Lady Mary’s dreadful decisions are at the same time enraptured in her love for Matthew.  Amid tales of love, scandal and perfectly placed china, the Downton Abbey effect is much like the Real Housewives, but with proper etiquette and poise.

While most wedding details were not seen in the long awaited walk down the aisle, Lady Mary’s attire was not missed.  Consider these looks inspired by the Edwardian Era to set the tone for your long awaited nuptials.

“Ah,” she cried, “you look so cool.”  Their eyes met, and they stared together at each other, alone in space.  With an effort she glanced down at the table.  You always look so cool,” she repeated.

Sketch the Dress

Every young girl interested in fashion, and each budding designer, knows that an idea for a gown begins with a sketch.  What Vatana Watters understood though, and what has made her designs and companies powerhouses in the bridal and formal wear industries for over two decades, is that the sketch is where it starts; it isn’t where the design ends.

The Odette sketch below gives life to the important details like being strapless and designed a-line with a washed silk organza overlay and a sweep train.  Yet only when the bride puts the gown on does it really begin to live and enhance the wearer.  The beaded lace strips on the bodice boosts the womanly form.  The a-line and overlay causes it to appear as though the bride is floating on air.  And the satin ribbon enhances the waist at its narrowest point, further flattering the woman’s figure.SketchTheDress-watters-feature-BridalCoutureMagazine-fall2012-odette-gown

The Hera sketch shows a strapless gown with drop-waist features.  Still, until a woman tries it on, it isn’t obvious that the embellished feather lace bodice and chapel train lend Oscar-worthy glamour to the gown that will surely make a statement as the bride walks up the aisle towards her leading man.SketchTheDress-watters-feature-BridalCoutureMagazine-fall2012-heragown
