Claire Pettibone's collection has been inspired by vintage romance. The brand is well known for creating enchanted bohemian designs that are perfectly suited to a bride wanting to toss their shoes and play barefoot in the sand.
For those who don't know much about the brand, they launched in 1994 after a decade working in lingerie. The styles are targeted at garden, vineyard, rustic and vintage inspired weddings. Brides worldwide are in love with Claire's creations, including the likes of Priscilla Chan who married Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg.
The designs featured below have a soft, gentle and gracefulness about them. Each gown has been finished with exquisite European lace and light touch of colour on those with a sash. The gowns have been perfectly accompanied by flowers in the hair as they enhance the soft and romantic and somewhat goddess look. These gowns are perfect for a relaxed bride thinking of having a beach or garden party wedding. The only gown from the collection that we'd suggest for a bride wanting a black tie affair, a structured hair do and sparkle stilletos would be the Aphrodite.
