We were pretty excited when it was announced earlier this year that bridal designer Claire Pettibone had teamed up with Wedding Paper Divas to launch a beautiful, one-of-a-kind line of stationary. So you can imagine our enthusiasm when we caught wind of her latest venture: Claire Pettibone Romantique, a new gown collection that offers the designer’s signature ethereal styles—each of them priced below $3,000.
And we’re here to tell you that all of the new designs—there are 21 in total—are absolutely stunning. Just as you would expect, the line contains many of the elements we’ve come to know and love about the Claire Pettibone brand: lots of lace, sheer layers, and relaxed silhouettes.
Says the designer of her new collection:
"A little Moroccan villa, a touch English garden. Timeless with a vintage vibe. Polaroid-soft light and lavender fields. Graceful, poetic, bohemian wedding gowns priced under $3,000, made with love in Los Angeles."
And get this—Romantique will be arriving in Philly in just a few months! Nicole Bridal & Formal Shoppe in Jenkintown has picked up the collection and will have it on display this fall. We spoke to the shop's co-owner Marina Albert—who was in New York for the Romantique runway show—and she let us know that the dresses are gorgeous and will arrive in time to order for Spring 2015 weddings.
For now, feel free to gawk at the entire collection below.
