Choose Your Gown

Your wedding dress is probably the most meaningful item of clothing you’ll ever wear, and that’s what makes it so special. We pour our hearts into each dress we create, and we love being a part of your story.

Our prices range from $2,000 to $3,000 for a Romantique gown, $3,500 to $8,500 for Couture, and up to $20,000+ for a completely custom design.

Of all the dresses, this one is uniquely you. Listen to your heart, trust your gut, and enjoy this moment.

The Process

The Atelier

All of our made-to-order gowns and accessories are hand-crafted in our Los Angeles atelier housed within a 1920’s historic landmark called The Castle. We have a wonderful team of extremely skilled craftspeople, and Claire herself oversees every dress.

When you choose your gown, your measurements will be taken, any customizations will be discussed, and a 50% deposit is required. We receive your order in LA, and laces are ordered from France, embroideries from Italy, and silk from Japan is on the way to our Atelier where we will hand cut and sew your wedding dress.

The Process

Your Wedding Dress

Your gown is ready, and it’s time for your first try on. You should expect a few fittings for alterations to achieve a flawless fit. Once every detail is completed, you are ready to be married!

We’ve been dressing brides for almost 15 years, and we adore our brides! Unique, creative, smart, independent, beautiful women of every kind. Thank you for becoming a Claire Pettibone bride.

Where to Find Us

Our collection is carried in select bridal boutiques throughout the world.
