Known around the world for her gorgeous wedding gowns, Claire Pettibone is a leader in creating enchanting bridal gowns from the finest European embroideries and laces. Her romantic designs, which are inspired by vintage fabrics and incorporate delicate lace and floral embellishments, are perfect for brides – like Mark Zuckerberg's beloved Priscilla Chan, Nikki Reed, and more – who are looking for unique and timeless creations.
With a flagship salon in Beverly Hills that looks as though it's out of a fairy tale and a newly launched Spring 2024 bridal collection titled Les Fleurs, Claire Pettibone is one of the wedding industry's most influential and romantic bridal designers. She is the perfect person to offer brides advice on fashion, the wedding day, and life-long love.
If you walk into every salon with the intense pressure of finding The One, it can be overwhelming. It may take some time, but you will find your gown. You found the groom – that's the hard part!
Choose details and elements that truly mean something to you, not just because they fit into your theme or are a hit on Pinterest.
My goal as a designer is to enhance your beauty, and there is nothing better than when a bride not only looks amazing, but also has an emotional connection to her gown.
A wedding gown is not like any other item of clothing. You can't just choose your size and go. On average, it takes alterations and three fittings to achieve your personal, best fit.
Veils, jewelry, belts, hair adornments, shoes – there are so many ways to individualize your look!
Whether you create them yourself or enlist the help of family and friends, features made with love add another dimension that you will miss if your wedding is overproduced.
The nerve between these toes causes pain in the balls of your feet, so taping them together lessens the strain put on the nerve and helps alleviate pain (why did I not know this years ago?!).
When the big day arrives, don't stress about what may go wrong. The secret to a fabulous wedding is when the bride and groom enjoy every minute. Your guests will follow your lead.
After all the guests have gone, and you and your husband are finally alone, you will realize you are starving!
A one-of-a-kind groom who is madly in love with her.
