Claire Pettibone wedding dresses are simply gorgeous. They combine a vintage feel with modern silhouettes and a bohemian spirit that gives them the most unique romantic quality.
In particular, we love the detail, clever use of colour and total individuality of Claire’s designs. You’ll find the full range of Claire’s designs on her site, and there really is something to suit every bride, but stay with us for a moment longer and take a closer look at four of our favourites, chosen for their fabulous detailing and their free spirited vibe, we know you’ll love them just as much as we do.
The Shangri-La Dress
The inspiration for this dress is Shangri-La – a beautiful imaginary place where life approaches perfection and what an apt name as it’s one divine dress! The multi coloured embroidery on this dress is layered over gold lace, and looks simply stunning.
The illusion neckline and back lead to the Guipure lace fitted waist, and flow to the graceful skirt embellished with fringe dangle lace.
The Shangri-La is available as shown here with Multi-colored embroidery on gold lace, with a lining in Almond silk. It’s also available in an ivory embroidery and lace version which is equally eye catching.
The celestine wedding dress is a figure flattering masterpiece featuring intricate beading on French lace with pure silk embroidery.
An elegant halter neckline embellished with fine Guipure medallion appliques along the neck and shoulders, rich beaded embroidered lace is enhanced with a sequined train to add wonderful movement when you walk.
All of this is paired with a showstopping illusion back design inspired by the stained glass windows of the great European cathedrals. As with all of Claire’s designs this dress is designed to look amazing from all angles.
The delicate floral embroidery on the Maia gown reminds us of the most beautiful English country garden with it’s scattering of pale pink roses and light blue hydrangea decorating the whisper soft tulle.
This design features Claire’s signature illusion back with flowers tumbling gently down the back and onto a long train. Just perfect for those over the shoulder poses that work so well with many of Claire’s designs.
The fitted waist and gossamer tulle give this delightful dress a timeless ethereal quality.
The Cheyenne Dress
The Cheyenne dress is made of the most beautiful floral lace with a draped cameo motif along the scalloped edge.
The sleeveless illusion neckline has a detailed lace button back closure leading to a flowing train.
This wedding dress is the perfect blend of vintage, boho, modern, sexy and super stylish and will suit so many wedding themes and styles.
