Take it from us: one look at a stunning Watters gown, and the rest is history. So get excited, Houston brides-to-be, because our very own Mia Bridal Couture is hosting a Watters Brides Spring 2016 Trunk Show on November 27-28*, a special Thanksgiving weekend of exclusive trunk show offers and incentives! Why not take a break from all of the stressful Black Friday shopping and drop by this dreamy River Oaks salon for an afternoon of luxury and relaxation—plus the most impeccable service and attention to your every need—instead? Chances are, you’ll find your perfect Watters gown within minutes of stepping inside. Now, that is what we call love at first sight.

*UPDATE (as of 11/18): Mia Bridal Couture will NOT be open on Thanksgiving Day, November 26, as previously stated.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving, brides-to-be, and make sure to skip that third serving of pumpkin pie if you plan to be trying on wedding gowns the next day! 😉
Long gone are the days when traditional white gowns were the only options for brides. Designers like Jenny Packham have introduced gorrrgeous metallic-accented gowns and have instantly become a hit on the runway. It’s true—subtle shine and sophisticated sheen goes a long way. We’ve picked out this season’s hottest metallic-inspired gowns, accessories and cakes, too. So what are you waiting for? Go for the gold, girl.
