Events: Accessories Trunk Show

February 24th, 2014 – 1 Comment

Shoes, veils, jewelry, sashes…did I mention shoes?! We’re a little dress obsessed over here, but just like every girl in the world, a bride needs her accessories! So we’re dedicating an entire two days to decking you out. Actually, I’ve been spending WAY more than two days on it, preparing some beautiful new things to dress up your dress.

Every time I do a photo shoot, I’ll create some spur of the moment styling pieces. This time I brought along some lace, a jeweled piece here and there, and whipped up some breath-taking (if I do say so myself!) gloves. I just love how accessories bring a whole look together and really infuse an individual style. So, I have lots of new veils, sashes, and headpieces to reveal, along with two new exclusive and amazing collections from the UK.

First up, Lila has created the most amazing, hand-crafted floral wreaths exclusively for Claire Pettibone, and we are the only US stockist to offer these beauties! Made from clay-like material, they remain slightly supple (so as not to crack) and extremely light weight, and look as delicious as frosting! Hand painted either in the softest shades from nature, or with actual 24K gold leaf. Each petal is crafted by hand, so no two are exactly alike. A perfect alternative to fresh flowers, which can quickly wilt in the sun, and you’ll have this keepsake forever!

We are thrilled to welcome Emmy shoes to the castle with her stunning vintage inspired collection. I first discovered these lovelies on one of my favorite UK blogs, www.lovemydress.net and one thing led to another, and here she is! Not only are these shoes perfect for the bride, but they are so gorgeous you’ll wear them long after the big day. And don’t forget your bridesmaids, mothers, and of course yourself when you’re not a bride, but just being fabulous.

Here at our Flagship, we look forward to showing you all the loveliness, and helping you choose the dress, veil, jewels, shoes, or any combination of those for your special day. Receive a free gift with purchase (a little something for the honeymoon) and bring a friend! Appointments required for a fitting room if you would like to try on dresses…otherwise, feel free to stop in!

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!

New Looks: Claire Pettibone For Wedding Paper Divas | Vol. 2

February 10th, 2014 – 1 Comment

I am thrilled to share a project very dear to my heart…wedding invitations designed exclusively for Wedding Paper Divas! When I create a collection, I envision the entire wedding…the venue, the flowers, the dress…it all comes together to tell a story, and the wedding invitation is the first hint of things to come.

One of nature’s most unique gifts, the butterfly captures the imagination with her kaleidoscope of colors and the symbolism of re-birth and finding true beauty within.

Butterflies naturally come to mind when thinking of a garden wedding. I would love to see this lush suite paired with some of my most romantic gowns.
