10 Watters Wedding Gowns Perfect for Destination Celebrations

If you’re a fun-loving and adventurous bride, a destination wedding is right up your alley. Whether you say “I do” on a private beach at sunset or a sunrise ceremony overlooking a mountainscape, the options are endless—including the wedding gown you wear!

Texas-based designer Vatana Watters has an array of beautiful gowns that would be perfect for a destination wedding. Plus, she offers a wide variety of wedding dresses from ball gowns to sheath silhouettes, to strapless versus off-the-shoulder. Here are our top picks for your destination celebration.


Watters Amore Wedding Dress

We start with a sparkly A-line gown, that’s named Amore, boasting a matching plunging v-neck and v-back. The gown is crafted with layers of soft netting with abrazo mesh lining underneath.

The hand-draped bodice is adorned with intricate beading and sequins while the shimmery embellishments continue through the dreamy tulle skirt. The ethereal gown comes in ivory, snow or nude so you can choose what you like best with your skin tone.

We picture this romantic gown on a cliff overlooking the Italian Riviera. A Renaissance-style garden with a flower terrace would host the glamorous nuptials at dusk.


Watters Clara Wedding Dress

If you’re into the more minimalist look, this stunning Clara wedding dress is gorgeous. The ivory sheath gown is made of smooth Vellan charmeuse fabric that hugs the bride’s curves.

The front features a plunging v-neckline and dramatic puffed long sleeves with delicate fabric-covered buttons. At the bottom of the v-back, the extra-long belt fabric is used to create a unique tie detail in the back.The soft bias-cut skirt and chapel-length train complete the look.

This style is perfect for a boho-chic wedding in Hawaii. The sandy Honolulu beach could feature a circle arch and mix-matched Persian rugs to make up the aisle. Spray roses, peonies and pampas grass come together for the bride’s bouquet.


Watters Gioia Wedding Dress

This beautiful ball gown is giving us all the princess vibes. Plus, we love a detachable option for your big day.

The gown features a blend of fabrics: soft netting, dotted netting and romantic tulle. The bodice, complete with a sweetheart neckline, boasts dreamy 3D floral embellishments made of intricate beads and sequins.

The crinkle pleated tulle skirt adds exquisite movement and has a unique oatmeal color lining underneath the billowy layers. A low back gives the gown a touch of sensuality, along with the detachable off-the-shoulder sleeves for a two-in-one wedding look.

For this gown, we’re heading to the streets of New York for a luxe rooftop garden party. The 620 Loft & Garden venue is the perfect place to host stunning nuptials overlooking 5th Avenue. The serene atmosphere boasts historical gardens, plus water features like reflective pools and fountains.


Watters Yavanna Wedding Dress

Another feminine-romantic option is the fun-loving Yavanna gown. The structured A-line gown resembles an airy cloud and will send you floating down the aisle.

The skirt is a billowy mix of silk and matte organza with beautiful draping. The ruffled bodice is a unique feature and matches the detachable puffed sleeves for a playful addition. A velvet ribbon belt accentuates the bride’s waist while the low back is a sensual touch. We love how the gown is full of detail without needing any sparkly embellishments.

After drinking in this divine wedding gown, we’ve decided on Napa Valley for this destination celebration—specifically the Beaulieu Garden in Saint Helena, California. The venue is a private, family-owned estate and considered one of the oldest wine-producing vineyards in Napa. It’s the perfect spot for a summer wedding surrounded by lush greenery and many bottles of wine, of course.


Watters Florie Wedding Dress

The Florie wedding dress is both modern and elegant and we love the structured silhouette. The column gown, made of dreamy lisse crepe, leads with a square neckline paired with a scoop back and gentle chapel train.

The skirt is where the designers add a bit of fun. We love the bold side-ruffle detail while the daring slit highlights the gown’s femininity.

This gown has just enough edge to be perfect for a Vegas elopement. Head to the chapel, with or without the Elvis impersonator, and get married! If you plan to say “I do” in Sin City, shoot for September through December. The weather is still relatively nice and you’ll avoid the dreaded spring and summer break crowds.


Watters Liv Wedding Dress

Our next fave for a destination wedding is the stunning Liv gown. Lovers of lace will fall head over heels for this dreamy design.

Crafted from the designer’s custom Vala lace, this fit-and-flare silhouette is all about complimenting the bride’s curves. Other ethereal fabrics like illusion tulle and dotted netting are used throughout the strapless gown along with hand-placed lace applique. The ivory-blush color is a modern accent while the mini puff gauntlet sleeves are a touch of vintage.

For this gown, we picture Barcelona, Spain and the Mas Casamitjana is a stunning venue option. With the rolling Catalan hills as your backdrop and the Pyrenees foothills in the distance, the centuries-old location brings history to life. It’s the perfect pick for a modern, rustic and utterly romantic wedding.


Watters Mirall Wedding Dress

For something totally sexy, this slinky sheath gown is a winner. The no-fuss silhouette is made of elegant Vellan charmeuse, perfect for the bride that wants to be able to move freely throughout the day.

The ivory gown boasts dramatic asymmetry from the straps of the round scoop neckline to the thigh-high slit in the skirt. Covered buttons allow you to control how much of your leg you want to reveal. It’s a very sensual-modern approach to an overall minimalist design.

This bride has planned a breathtaking view for her destination nuptials—a waterfall wedding in Ocho Rios, Jamaica. The picturesque location is beautiful around early springtime as the tropical rainforest comes to life with the dawn of the new season.

Ti Amo

Watters Ti Amo Wedding Dress

This next gown boasts regal flair, so it definitely caught our eye. The soft A-line gown, crafted from Anjo lace, features a fitted corset bodice and a sweetheart neckline. The figure-flattering silhouette also boasts soft netting for a romantic look and feel.

The lace long sleeves are another feminine touch and the low scoop back is a nod to the modern bride. A stunning cathedral train adds drama to this more traditional-looking ensemble.

If you look like a princess on your wedding day then getting married in a castle in Ireland is a no-brainer! With the idyllic Irish countryside as your reception backdrop, this gown would be a great choice for a September wedding. It’s also the month with the least amount of rain—although rain is said to be good luck on a wedding day. In that case, thank the luck of the Irish!


Watters Rozi Wedding Dress

If you’re planning a southern-themed wedding, then this next gown is simply stunning. Luscious layers of silk organza and delicate tulle make up the strapless design and the bias-cut tiered ruffles on the skirt are a fun twist to this classic style.

The beautiful trumpet silhouette is perfect for the bride that wants to show off her curves. To accentuate the bride’s waist even more, adding a floral tulle belt would complete the ensemble. We do love how the large beaded veil adds a touch of sparkle.

A lovely garden wedding in Charleston, South Carolina is a match made in heaven for this gown. The city boasts sweet southern charm and hosts a number of weddings in the springtime and fall.


Watters Flint Wedding Dress

For our final destination wedding dress, the Flint gown is ready to make a statement.

Brillar embroidery is delicately placed over the thicket lace-and-illusion bodice. A bold plunging neckline takes center stage while a statuesque lisse crepe skirt is a clean finish. The simple chapel train allows the bride to decide whether or not she wants to bustle the gown, so it’s totally your call.

We love this dress for a sunny summer wedding on the beach in Mexico. It’s elegant enough for a more formal affair but could also work for a low-key elopement as well. Plus, a honeymoon at an all-inclusive resort in Cancun isn’t a bad way to start married life.
