All their dresses are pretty, and I would know because I got to try on and style some dresses at the Watters studio. As a future bridesmaid (in my cousin Christine's wedding), I was excited about this photo shoot for WEEKS! With the help of Watters PR guy David Lopez, my photographer du jour Elizabeth West, and Watters intern Scarlett Taylor, I was able to look like a blushing bridesmaid. I've broken up the dresses into 4 categories for each type of wedding. I hope you enjoy.

If your bride gives you the freedom to pick your shoes and accessories, here are some guidelines to follow:
- Headpieces are a must. Convince your bride that the girls need to wear headpieces. (Watters lent me the headpieces for the photoshoot!)
- Pearls are always elegant and won't take attention from the bride.
- Have fun with your shoes. Even if you have to wear a certain color, there are lots of styles you can pick from. But you might want to make sure that they're comfy so you can dance!
- Spend your money on the dress, not the accessories. Wear a big cocktail ring with faux diamonds. They look rich but don't cost a lot.
- But always keep this important rule in mind: don't outshine the bride!
