New Looks: Claire Pettibone For Wedding Paper Divas | Vol. 3

February 12th, 2014 – Comment

The thing about ideas that I love most, is when seemingly unrelated things come together to inspire something new. This pattern for Embossed Porcelain invitations actually began with engraved crystal goblets from my personal collection. As we were working on the motif and laying out the colors, I thought, wouldn’t it be cool if it had that raised look of Wedgwood china…especially with the ivory on blue color combo. But then it also kind of reminds me of fondant icing on a wedding cake, and wallpaper, and lace…well, you get the picture!

These gowns all share this same attention to detail and patterns that reflect this inspiration. It’s all about texture, delicate beading or intricate embroideries. The subtle contrast between lace and skin, beautiful backs, and elaborate sleeves. So many ways to say “I love you!”

I always say, the venue and the gown are the two things that really set the tone for the wedding. From there, the style, mood, and all of the details fall into place. If you choose a gown with delicate detailing, why not make that the story for your décor, your invitations, your cake? Layers of delicious embroidery and lace topped with a touch of spun sugar. Confections for the bride make a delicious indulgence…bon appetite!
