I can't believe we haven't chosen the beautiful Pippin wedding dress from Watters before for our Say Yes to the Dress feature as it's definitely one of our favourite gowns of the moment. We are delighted to be exclusive stockist for Wtoo and Willowby (formerly Love Marley) wedding gowns in Donegal and the North West of Ireland. Immediately when we visited the stands at the Harrogate wedding fair last year, we knew we had to have these stunning dresses in our boutique and Pippin among a few other Watters dresses were our favourite purchases from the shows....and we bought lots!
We adore the modern lace on this dress and intricate beading. It really is a modern take on a vintage look and we find that many brides who are finding other laces too traditional for them, fall, totally head over heels for Pippin. The lace comes in an off white colour and there is several options for the lining which transform the look of this dress. Lining colours include white, ivory, blush, almond, rose gold and champagne. Our store sample has the rose gold lining and we find this is the most popular choice among brides who chose this dress also.
The dress has beautiful modified sweetheart neckline, however it is possible to add straps to this gown and we've ordered a little extra lace to allow this option for our brides to add a strap if preferred. A delicate off the shoulder strap is stunning on this dress.
A lot with the intricate and detailed beading which makes this dress shimmer throughout, it features covered buttons which run to the base of the train, think Pippa Middleton style.
But probably the best feature of this wedding dress is the geometric pattern of the lace. This gown is carefully designed to accentuate your curves and creates a beautiful, sexy silhouette. Brides love the way this dress makes them feel and how fabulous their figure looks in this gown. One bride cried as she hadn't felt this beautiful since having her kids and the associated changes to her body and witnessing those great moments is what makes us love our job as much as we do!
In terms of styling, we would really play up on the rose gold and blush tones in this dress. For bridesmaids, there are a few different looks we like with this gown depending on how you want the overall look of your day to flow. Rose gold sequin bridesmaids would be a glam addition to the bridal look. Blush and various shades of pink also work with this gown as does Ivory bridesmaids which really makes the bride stand out. A sharp navy suit for your groom keeps the look modern in keeping with the modern lace on your dress.
We love Pippin! Would you say yes to the dress?
