The Claire Pettibone Timeless Bride 2019 collection will delight modern brides and vintage lovers alike. Eight romantic styles see the designer put her spin on the classic strapless wedding dress.
Although inspired by both the past and present, when creating a wedding dress Claire Pettibone thinks about the long term. She explains, “My ultimate goal is to create wedding dresses that portray each bride and give her a beauty that endures the test of time.”
Timeless Bride 2019 combines signature lace and embroidery with unexpected and feminine details. Hand-beaded flowers cascade over lace and silk, soft structured bodices flatter, and flowing skirts will have you floating down the aisle. Details such as the dangling guipure droplets on the ‘Victoriana’ wedding dress inject vintage inspired glamour, while contemporary touches like ‘Odessa’s’ illusion bodice add delicacy and intrigue.
It’s always hard to choose favourites from a Claire Pettibone collection, but here goes…
Your something blue? Eloise features intricate ivory lace detailing with romantic florals and cameo motif. It’s pictured here in blue, but you can choose Eloise in any of Claire Pettibone’s silk lining colour options.
The Justin Alexander Fall/Winter 2019 collection showcases the brand’s iconic approach to classic romance and impeccable finishing. Inspired by the needs of real brides, Justin Alexander designs the perfect wedding day look with stunning silhouettes, adorned necklines and high attention to detail.
With over 30 styles to choose from, the Fall/Winter 2019 collection offers brides an incredible amount of choice. Amongst these truly breathtaking wedding dresses you’ll find sophisticated, elegant ball gowns, sleek fit and flare designs, off-the-shoulder trumpet styles and figure-flattering A-line dresses.
Highlights include billowy skirts, refreshing laces, and beading that enhance the silhouettes, while detachable trains, sleeves, skirts and jackets offer versatility. There’s also a wide variety of necklines. Styles including halter, sweetheart, Sabrina, off-the-shoulder, notch and, most noticeably, V-neck, provide varying amounts of coverage.
One of the key elements of the Justin Alexander Fall/Winter 2019 collection is the use of superior fabrics. Soft tulle, rich chiffon, ruffled organza and light crepe add romance, while stretch Mikado, sophisticated satin and delicate lace give a chic elegance. With lace prominent throughout this collection, I’ve picked three of my favourite wedding dresses featuring Chantilly, Alençon and Venice lace…
This beautiful Chantilly lace A-line wedding dress with chapel length train features delicate beading on the bodice and illusion scoop back which trickles down the skirt.
